Third Generation Driver Prepares for Rookie Season in #15a
Avery Stoehr of Lakeville, MA will be competing in the Northeastern Midget Association (NEMA) Midgets full-time for MCI Racing. Stoehr wants to “be competitive all year and learn as much as I can. … I think I learned a lot from driving the #3t, #26, and #44 this year and hopefully can build off that for next season.”
Both Avery and Bethany Stoehr’s cars are former Mike Jarret Beast-Gaerte Fords. Avery Stoehr will drive a new spare chassis, while John Andruk is finishing engine work this week. Sponsors Motor Cars International of Bridgewater, MA, Skaters Edge Indoor Skatepark of Taunton, MA and Circle Performance Racing Engines of Berkley, MA will join Stoehr for his NEMA run.
Stoehr has four career NEMA Lite wins. He finished third in NEMA Lite points last year with wins at Stafford and Waterford. Stoehr also had two top 10 finishes in five NEMA Midget starts this past season. “I as well as Carl Kibbe are really looking forward to him moving up,” Russ Stoehr said. “His limited performances in the #44 showed a lot of promise and his Thompson debut showed me he is ready.”
