Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour Presented by Twisted Tea

THOMPSON, CT (October 21, 2014) — For the first in the Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour history the regular season closed out at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park’s World Series. Thirty-Two tour style mini stocks showed up for the Inaugural event. Two time champion Emerson Cayer entered the event 72 points behind friend and point leader Toby Wells. The closest battle within the points happened to be for the 3rd spot and Rookie of the Year. Nick Anderson and Justin Larsen were only separated by a mere 3 points.

On Friday evening teams lined up and ran their heat races with an impressive showing from Justin King moving from last to first in only 3 laps to win his heat. Larsen and Wells would also win their respective heat races in dominating fashion. The 4th year driver, King, drew an invert of 2 rows for the feature to be held on Saturday. According to NEMST procedures no current season feature winners may start in the top 10, Wells and Larsen would start 10th and 11th.

On the front row it would be Nick Maniatis and Justin King to lead the field to the green flag. After a long, long day with multiple rain showers the NEMST feature rolled onto the speedway at about 10:45 PM. The field thundered down the front stretch with tight 2,3, and 4 wide action all throughout the 32 car field. King broke out to the early lead but was in a dog fight with Maniatis that would soon include Thomas, Sonnhalter, and Larsen.
