Bridgewater, MA — This Saturday evening NEMA brings its extreme action to Monadnock Speedway for the Iron Mike Scrivani Memorial, remembering the long time NEMA stalwart and father of long time NEMA President and supporter, Mike Scrivani Jr. The night will feature a 30 lap feature for the NEMA feature and 30 laps for the Lites.
When Saturday rolls around, all eyes will be at the top of the points standings, with John Zych leading Danny Cugini by a narrow margin in the NEMA series – and only sixty points separating first to sixth place Randy Cabral. Eyes will also be on Joey Payne, making his first 2015 start in the Bertrand Motorsports #74 machine. Payne was a winner at Monadnock two seasons ago. In the Lites class, Danny Cugini leads Randy Cabral and Anthony Payne in the standings.
Known as a “driver’s track” – Drew Fornoro holds the all time win record at the NH quarter mile. During the late 80s when NEMA frequented the ¼-mile oval, Fornoro, in the Gene Angelillo machine, dominated with wins at the speedway during the 1982-1986 seasons. He also won during the final two seasons that the Club visited the Speedway with triumphs in 1996 and 1997. Other winners at Monadnock in the modern era include Mike Seymour, Russ Stoehr, Greg Stoehr, Cabral and Payne.
