Epping, NH – Carl Medeiros Jr. became the first Northeastern Midget Association Lites Division competitor to capture three straight wins Saturday night with a convincing 25-lap triumph at Star Speedway.
Medeiros (Medeiros 50), coming off two victories at Lee Speedway on July 13, passed Bethany Stoehr down the back stretch five laps in. It was a caution-free romp from there, Medeiros, who will turn 16 on July 24, finishing far ahead of what turned into a Bethany Stoehr (MCI/Stoehr 26b), Dylan Duhaime (Duhaime 57) battle for second.
Youth was served as the 14-year old Duhaime fell a half-car length short of taking second from 17-year old Stoehr at the checkered. They are, however, “old foes” in the go kart wars. “We pretty much know what each other is going to do,” said Medeiros after winning the second Lites point race of the season.
