Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour presented by Twisted Tea
09/20/15 — The Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour competed in their 10th event of the season and 2nd time at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway Sunday afternoon alongside the Pro All Stars Series. 20 NEMST minis made the trek north for the final Maine event of the 2015 season leaving Thompson’s World Series the final event on the tour.
Zach Audet showed he was back and ready to race by winning his heat race and earning the right to draw the inversion chip for the feature event. Toby Wells also won his heat race by making a fast move on the outside and then cruised for the victory over the 10 lap event. Audet drew a 3 row inversion moving him back to the 5th starting position and placing 2 of the strongest cars in the field on the front row, Emerson Cayer and Matt Sonnhalter.
Cayer broke out to the lead as the green flag waved but Sonnhalter fought back on the outside to overcome Cayer by lap 2 and start to pace the field. NEMST new comer Haywood Herriot chased Sonnhalter and pulled away from the 3rd place battle. Wells improved his 11th place starting position to 7th in just 3 laps. Once Wells pulled up to the 5th place battle he encountered heavy traffic and was held up for a number of laps. Early leader Cayer fell back on the outside and Wells pushed forward moving into the 4th position on lap 15.
