NEMA Sets 2013 Schedule

Brockton, MA – Established haunts make up the 2013 Northeastern Midget Association schedule including a return to Monandock Speedway after a two-year absence. As NEMA President Mike Scrivani puts the finishing touches on the final schedule, there are 13 races currently on the NEMA agenda while the NEMA Lites will make 15 stops in what will be the club’s 61st consecutive season, making it New England’s oldest sanctioning body.

Randy Cabral and owner Tim Bertrand will begin defense of their NEMA championships and the Lites will begin their sixth season at Waterford Speedbowl’s Budweiser Blast Off on April 6-7.

Monadnock returns to the schedule hosting both NEMA and the Lites for the Iron Mike Scrivani Race on June 22. The club will honor the 30th anniversary of the passing of the legendary car owner on the speedy high banked quarter mile.

The full midgets and the Lites will share the billing eight times including Stafford Motor Speedway Carquest Super Saturday on June 29. It will be the Lites first time on the historic half mile. Both divisions will return to New York State’s Oswego Speedway as well on Sept.14.

Two special events – the Marvin Rifchin Trophy Race at Star Speedway on June 8 and the Shane Hammond Memorial at Waterford on July 27 will also include the Lites. Lee USA Speedway hosts both on July 12.

NEMA will also return to Seekonk’s Open Wheel Wednesday (July 17) and Waterford’s Wings & Wheels (August 10), two traditional stops.

The season ends in traditional style – Waterford’s Finale, Lee’s Oktoberfest and Thompson’s World Series, the Lites part of the first two.

“We’ve run hundreds of races on these tracks,” said NEMA Scrivani. “That coupled with a field of good drivers and great equipment is a recipe for a great season. Last year saw some terrific speeds. We’ll be quicker this year.”
