NO. STONINGTON, CT – Is there such a thing as home field advantage in stock car racing? Perhaps.
They may not be called Street Stocks, but Claremont Speedway’s Limited Sportsman Division bears a striking resemblance to the production cars raced in the North East Street Stock Tour (NESST). In fact, this Friday night at the quirky, New Hampshire oval, the two will race together in an NESST-sanctioned race.
NESST part-timer, Tyler Janovsky, finished 10th in the opener at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, a place where he has minimal experience. His home track is Claremont Speedway. He began racing there in 2012, prior to the track’s closure. He then became a regular at Monadnock Speedway in the Thunder Stocks were he was able to amass two race wins and Rookie of the Year honors.
