Brockton, MA — Stopping the win streak of Russ Stoehr is the objective when the Northeastern Midget Association visits Thompson Speedway for the Marvin Rifchin Trophy race on Thursday night, July 7. Stoehr and the Dumo’s Desire 45 team have run off three straight.
Several drivers, starting with Randy Cabral (Bertrand #47), hope to reverse their relationship with dame fortune on the super-quick five-eights. Cabral carries a streak of bad luck into Thompson where he has won an incredible nine races since 2001 including a couple last year.
After setting fast time in the heats, Cabral found a broken sparkplug just before the feature at Stafford’s Extreme Tuesday. Lady luck deserted Greg Stoehr (Stoehr #26b), Jeff Abold (Abold #29) and Jeremy Frankoski (Cantor #7ny) as well at Stafford. All hope to rekindle the relationship at Thompson.
