Palmer Crowned Late Model Champion

Groton, Conn. — A strong season at New London-Waterford Speedbowl brought Jason Palmer back to the head table.  Palmer earned his first Late Model championship with 5 wins, 16 top fives and 17 top 10s.  Palmer’s sponsors are Manafort Brothers, Nano Construction, CWPM, FMR Racing, Waddell Communications, Sign Pro, Pecon, and Ukleja’s Christmas Trees.

“It feels pretty good,” said Palmer Saturday night. “It took us a few more years than we wanted to to get here, but we got here and I think we’re just here to enjoy the night and make the most of it and get ready for 2016.”

Palmer had to adjust to Late Models after a successful career in Legend Cars.

“We got the car figured out. The Legend Cars are much, much harder to drive and they’re basically out of control. The Late Model’s like driving a boat. I’ve never really been a captain, so it’s tough for me to get a hang on it. But six years later, we figured it out.”

ACT Announces Southern New England Tripleheader

Waterbury, VT – The American-Canadian Tour (ACT), in collaboration with the New London-Waterford Speedbowl, Seekonk Speedway, and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, has announced the creation of the Southern New England Tripleheader for the 2016 stock car racing season. The three-event series will match up the best of the three track’s weekly racers with the stars of the ACT Late Model Tour.

The Tripleheader will be held on three unique race tracks – the 1/3-mile New London-Waterford Speedbowl, Seekonk Speedway’s ¼-mile bullring, and the 5/8-mile high banks of Thompson Speedway. The series includes a special $7,500 point fund for local weekly teams which participate in all three events. The events will also award championship points for ACT competitors as part of their $30,000 Championship point fund, which includes $10,000 for the 2016 ACT Champion.

“We had great support from local race teams for the final event at Thompson during the World Series last fall,” ACT President Tom Curley said. “The three Southern New England tracks – New London-Waterford, Seekonk, and Thompson – have become an important addition to our ACT weekly business model over the past decade. This program of three races, tied together with an independent point fund, should be lots of fun to follow for southern New England Late Model fans and teams throughout the 2016 season.”

TTOMS Announces 2 New London-Waterford Races

LONG ISLAND, N.Y. The Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) announced two more dates for their 2016 schedule on Friday morning, with a double return to the New London-Waterford Speedbowl in Connecticut on tap for the organization.

The Speedbowl will host the first of the two races on Thursday night Aug. 25, with $10,000 up for grabs to the winner of the 100 lap feature. A second event will be on Sunday, Oct. 23 as part of the 2nd annual “Bemer’s Big Show.”

“I think the most important thing is that there a such a wide variety of all the touring divisions that come together, it’s the ultimate race of talent and the guys that put the show on care so much about the drivers and the teams. We’re really excited to have Tri-Track back again,” said Speedbowl General Manager Shawn Monahan. “There were a few dates other series had so we weren’t able to go with the original plan and with potential construction going on, it was too risky to do an April race like I had talked about with Dick Williams. We decided to go with the Thursday night [in August] and as for the October date, that October show is going to be a knockout deal.”

Sid’s Vault Production Releases Chronological History of the New London-Waterford Speedbowl – Part 2

Tom DiMaggio released the second part of his New London-Waterford Speedbowl documentary tonight. With each part coinciding with track operators or ownership,  A Chronological History of the New London-Waterford Speedbowl – Part 2 covers 1961-1974. Jack Brouwer and Lou Esposito were added as owners before the track was sold to NEAR Hall of Famer Harvey Tattersall, Jr. 27 people are interviewed for this segment: “former track owner Don Benvenuti, track historian John Brouwer, writers Bones Bourcier and Pete Zanardi, photographer Steve Kennedy, former car owner Dick Brooks,  former drivers like Mark Lajeunesse, Mark Geer, Seabury Tripler, Bob Gada and Brian McCarthy.” The late multi-time Daredevil champion Bill Sweet, car owner Peg Gaudreau and NEAR Hall of Famer Ron Bouchard are also included.

 

The unique race cars of the era are profiled in this segment like the L&M coupe, the M Pinto and Budda’s Bullet No. 3.

“All tracks have their signature cars. When I see pics of Don LaJoie’s 711, I think of Danbury (Race)arena. When I see a pic of Johnny Cambino’s #7 coupe, I think of West Haven. A Membrino 00 makes me think of Plainville. I’d like to think when people see a pic of Freddie Beaber’s checkerboard 716, or the Gaudreau’s #3 coupe, or Stosh’s L&M, that they will think of the ‘bowl. So it’s important to have these cars that identify with a track…. and this is our way of celebrating their history.”

NEAR Hall of Famer Ron Bouchard Passes at 67

Ron Bouchard began his driving career as a teenager at the old Brookline (NH) Speedway driving for his father Bob. Soon he would venture to the old Westboro (MA) and Seekonk (MA) Speedways. Bouchard dominated Class A, winning four consecutive Seekonk championships in his No. 35 from 1968-71. He added another in 1978 driving a Modified.

Beyond his native Massachusetts, he went to Stafford (CT) Motor Speedway and adapted to the flat half-mile oval. He established himself one of the decade’s big Modified winners at Stafford, Thompson, and Westboro.

He drove for team owners like Dick Armstrong, Bob Garbarino, and Bob Johnson. Major victories included the 1980 Thompson 300, multiple 100 and 150-lap races at Stafford, and a 100-lap Late Model race at Seekonk in 1979.

Bouchard Passes Away at 67

Former Modified Driver Was 1981 Cup Rookie of the Year

Ron Bouchard, winner of the 1981 Talladega 500 and the premier series’ rookie of the year that same season, passed away Thursday. He was 67.

A native of Fitchburg, Mass., Bouchard pulled off one of NASCAR’s most stunning victories when he shot from third to first on the final lap at Talladega (then known as Alabama International Motor Speedway), passing Darrell Waltrip and Terry Labonte to score his lone premier series victory. The win came in his 11th career start.

He was driving the Jack Beebe-owned Race Hill Farm No. 47 Buick, with crew chief Bob Johnson. Bouchard had taken over the ride earlier in the season following the departure of driver Harry Gant.

2015 CHAMPION PROFILE: Doug Coby

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – In the three-act structure of storytelling, the segments include the setup, confrontation and resolution. Doug Coby’s NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour career fits quite well with this mold, and he’s providing plenty of resolution in his third act.

Coby’s first two acts have been well-chronicled at this point, but to briefly review:

Act 1, The Setup – The Milford, Connecticut, native debuted on the Whelen Modified Tour in 2002 and competed full-time from 2003-07. He became established as a regular in the garage.

Act 2, The Confrontation – From 2008-10 he was without a full-time car, with various opportunities here and there, but nothing stable. His future on the tour, and his place in it, was in question.

Act 3, The Resolution, is where we’ll pick up the story. This act is still very much a work-in-progress for the 36-year-old. The story is not yet complete, but lose ends are getting tied up.

Pulliam Reclaims Whelen All-American Crown

N.C. Driver Wins National Honor For Third Time In Four Years

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — It’s fitting Lee Pulliam took the call informing he was once again a national champion while on a lunch break during a Late Model test day at a race track.

The 2015 itinerary for the Semora, North Carolina, native resembles the 1970s racers chasing national points all over the map. Pulliam ran 51 races at seven different tracks – winning at six of them – in four different states over a nine-month period.

When he wasn’t at a race track, he was in his race shop.

Legend Champion to Continue Busy Schedule

Jordan Churchill finished 13th in his first Late Model start of the year driving the Gada No. 6.  He finished sixth in his debut last October 5.

He “got offered the chance and decided to try it out,” Churchill said. “… It is very different then a Legend Car, luckily last year I was offered the same opportunity and did it then also. It’s way wider, which was a constant reminder and it was cool to have to climb in. They don’t feel much faster and they feel way less sensitive versus the Legend Car. It was a blast altogether and I’m thankful for the opportunities.”

Churchill plans include a busy Legend Car schedule. He will visit Seekonk (MA) Speedway today and for the DAV weekend. He will also race Saturdays at New London-Waterford, the $2,000 to win Bridgewater Raynham Overhead Door Battle of the Sound October 25 and Turkey Derby XLII at Wall (NJ) Stadium.

LFR Chassis Gears Up For Build Season

Thriving Chassis Company Offering Partner Gift Cards To New Customers

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (September 17, 2015) – Entering its second “build season” for Modifieds, and first for Super Late Models, LFR Chassis is looking forward to constructing more race-winning chassis and strengthening relationships with both new and current customers. After a busy year of growth and racing, the company is thrilled to enter the 2016 build season and offer its customers a little something extra.

“We’ve experienced very rapid growth at LFR, going from four employees to 14 in just 12 months,” said Rob Fuller, President of LFR Chassis.  “When I acquired a company that built eight cars a year, and added the 10 modifieds I felt confident we could sell, I was geared up to produce 20 chassis per year. But in fact, in the past 15 months, we have manufactured over 70 chassis. Most of those chassis left our shop as complete cars, which adds to the workload. We are very fortunate, but at the same time, overwhelmed with the number of orders.  Starting a new business, we had to get the shop entirely up and running from ground zero with machinery, parts inventory, and staff to meet the demand.  It’s been crazy busy to say the least!”

LFR Chassis won the very first race it entered in the modified series with Doug Coby who has had a record year to date.
