Squeglia Wins at Lee

Lee, NH – Local racer Joe Squeglia of Derry, NH won the Seacoast 100 Granite State Pro Stock Series on Friday, following the fireworks at Lee. Squeglia was fast all day, posting the second fastest lap in practice, behind Jeremy Harclerode of Newmarket, NH. New dad, Jeremy Davis of Tamworth, NH also looked to be a contender as the previous winner at Lee and another that posted fast times in practice.

Squeglia, and Harclerode both won their heats. Davis finished second in his heat, and after the redraw, they started heads up in the feature. Early in the race, Squeglia kept the lead until lap 37 when Harclerode passed him. Derek Griffith of Hudson, NH started 12th and was quietly moving up in the pack and by the halfway mark had taken 4th place. Luke Hinkley of Claremont, NH was 7th on the starting grid, but had to start at the tail of the field because a quick trip to the pits on the pace laps, also moved up the field quickly.

Harclerode had a commanding lead until Davis caught up to him around lap 69, and on lap 71 Harclerode got loose coming out of turn 2, allowing Davis to capture the lead. Davis held the lead until lap 85 when his motor blew in turn 3 collecting Harclerode as well. Squeglia gained the lead in a restart with Griffith and held onto the lead to capture the victory.

Point Leader Helliwell Gets Third Win of Season in White Mountain 150

N. Woodstock, NH – Wayne Helliwell Jr. showed that it’s best to be lucky and good on Saturday night, winning the White Mountain 150 at White Mountain Motorsports Park.

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) point leader was running third when Brandon Atkins and Eddie MacDonald tangled racing for the lead on lap 115 of the 150-lap event. Dover, NH’s Helliwell inherited the lead and then pulled away from rival Joey Polewarczyk Jr. for his third win of the season and 10th of his ACT career.

“This is one of the toughest races we’ve had on the Tour in a long time,” Helliwell said. “We made some big wholesale changes to the car in practice and learned some stuff in the heat race, which transferred over to the feature. But at the beginning of the race, I thought all the changes we made were the wrong ones, because the car just went backwards…as the race unfolded, it kind of came to us. And then we lucked out on some things and were in the right spot at the right time.”

ACT Tour Takes on White Mountain Stars as Season Hits Halfway Mark

Waterbury, VT – The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) makes its annual visit to the White Mountain Motorsports Park in N. Woodstock, NH for the WMMP 150 on Saturday, June 20. The event will be the seventh on the Tour’s 13-race schedule and officially mark the halfway point of the 2015 season.

As with ACT’s 23 previous visits to the 1/4-mile oval, many of the weekly White Mountain Late Model stars will take on the Tour’s best. Although there have been close calls, including former White Mountain Champion Travis Fadden’s third-place finish in 2014, the local drivers are still looking for their big breakthrough in a Tour event.

N. Haverhill, NH’s Fadden has already filed an entry for the race, as has St. Johnsbury, VT’s Tyler Cahoon. The multi-time White Mountain Late Model winner is running an “outlaw” campaign in 2015 that includes a partial ACT Tour schedule, where he has two top-10 finishes. But Cahoon still considers White Mountain to be his home turf.

Alexander Seeking First Wiscasset Pro Stock Win

Ellsworth Teenager to Enter Touring Series Events

Wyatt Alexander of Ellsworth, ME will begin his season at Wiscasset (ME) Speedway’s season opener on Saturday April 18.  Alexander’s goals are to compete for wins at Wiscasset and get a top ten and at least one top five in the Pro All Star Series (PASS) North Super Late Models or the Granite State Pro Stock Series.

“I think our best shot at something like that would be the PASS races at Speedway 95 (in Hermon, ME on June 14). It’s a track I am familiar with and there aren’t as many cars when we go there. But overall we are just learning to learn as much as possible and get some good experience moving forward.”

The No. 96 K&B Automotive team will enter additional races depending on how the season at Wiscasset is going. If Alexander feels ready and is comfortable, he will then run other races.  Granite State Pro Stock Series for Alexander may include Lee, Hudson, Star twice, and White Mountain. Alexander is looking at PASS races at Oxford, Spud Qualifier, the Oxford 250, and NHMS as well.

9 for 9: Granite State Pro Stock Series Enjoys Parity in Winners Heading to White Mountain Motorsports Park

Walpole, NH — With only two races remaining, the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) has seen 9 different winners in 9 races on the 2014 season.  The next stop on the tour, the beautiful North Woodstock, NH facility, White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP), will throw a wild-card in the mix to keep the streak alive, as the GSPSS will race at the ¼ mile track for the first time in the series’ short existence.

The top three drivers in the 2014 championship standings have all recorded a win; Matt Frahm (Monadnock 5/31), Dillon Moltz (Star 9/7), and Larry Gelinas (Hudson 6/15).  However, five of the top 10 drivers in the point standings have not recorded a win (Derek Griffith, Mike Parks, Tommy O’Sullivan, Cory Robert, and Bobby Cabral).  Moltz, who has kept his no. 5, RB Performance/Brackett Mechanical Chevrolet, in the top of the field for the majority of the races this season, finally broke through and picked up the win at the NH Classic at Star Speedway last Sunday, September 7.  The former Waterford Speedbowl champion now sits just 15 points behind point leader, and career wins leader, Matt Frahm.  Gelinas, who led the points earlier in the season, sits only 17 behind Frahm with two races remaining.

For Griffith, it hasn’t been due to lack of effort to put the FEP Insurance/Motorcycles of Manchester Toyota in the winner’s circle.  The 17 year-old Hudson, NH native has finished inside the top 10 a total of 8 times in 9 races, with one 18th place finish at Star Speedway after being involved in multiple incidents during the evening.  The Louie Mechalides-led team has set their target on another strong finish at a track the series has yet to see a green flag fly.  “Louie (Mechalides) knows the place very well, and we all expect the car to be fast,” Griffith spoke.  “I think we just need some luck.”

Jeff White Takes ACT White Mountain 150 Win

North Woodstock, NH – Winthrop, ME’s Jeff White earned his second career American Canadian Tour win as he led nearly every lap of the 150 lap event at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, NH on Saturday, June 21. White held off Wayne Helliwell, Jr. through a fierce battle for the majority of the event.

White took the lead from his outside pole starting position at the drop of the green flag. Kyle Welch rode at his back bumper until the second restart of the event came on lap 33. Welch fell back opening the door for Travis Fadden to challenge White at the front. Fadden couldn’t get a run on the outside of White, but continued to look for daylight on the inside. At one point Fadden pushed the issue sending both himself and White sideways through turns one and two.

That was the opening Helliwell, who had marched from his 11th place starting position, needed. As White and Fadden slid sideways, Helliwell took over the second place spot and began to challenge White for the lead. Helliwell made several runs on the outside and swapped the lead with White four times through the second half of the event and the final three cautions. Helliwell didn’t have enough to make it work in the highline and after one last effort on the final restart with just eight laps to go, had to settle for second.

DJ Shaw Wins Third Straight PASS North Event at WMMP

N. Woodstock, NH — Red hot DJ Shaw picked up his third consecutive PASS North win this past Saturday night in the Littleton Chevrolet 150 at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire.

Glen Luce and Joey Polewarcyzk brought the twenty- four car field to the green flag, and the race was on. Luce jumped to the point and held the lead til lap 76 when Joey Pole tangled with a lapped car bringing out the first caution of the night. On the ensuing restart, Luce and Richie Dearborn made up the front row with Jeremy Davis, DJ Shaw and Travis Stearns rounding out the top five. At the drop of the green, the front row got together sending Dearborn hard into the front stretch wall and Luce spinning in turn one. Dearborn was unhurt but his car was finished for the night along with Brent Dragon’s machine. Jeremy Davis and Shaw took over row one and battled side by side until lap 90 when Shaw finally cleared Davis bringing Johnny Clark with him. The final caution flew for a minor spin in turn four on lap 100. Clark jumped to the point and held Shaw at bay until lap 110 when Shaw battled by and cruised to the victory. Clark settled for second ahead of Joey Pole, Mike Rowe and Jeremy Davis. Derek Ranstrom, Joey Doiron, Scott Mulkern, Travis Stearns and David Oliver completed the top ten. Luce, Travis Stearns, and Joey Pole won their respective qualifiers.

The next event for the PASS North Super Late Models will be on Saturday night, June 6th at Speedway 660 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Post time is 7:05pm. For more information visit the PASS website at www.proallstarsseries.com.

WOODSTOCK, NH — A dismal forecast for Saturday, May 30th at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire, forced postponement of the Littleton Chevrolet PASS 150 to Saturday, May 31st at 5pm. A forecast of 80%-100% chance of rain and thunderstorms once again made the decision an easy one.

WMMP Next Stop for PASS Super Late Models

The picturesque White Mountain Motorsports Park located on Route 3 in North Woodstock, New Hampshire will be the next stop for the Pro All Stars Series, as the top PASS Super Late Model teams in the northeast invade the ¼ mile speed plant on Saturday, May 24th at 5pm for the Littleton Chevrolet / Buick PASS 150.

WMMP has always been regarded as one of the favorite tracks by most PASS North teams as it is extremely wide, very fast and always allows for plenty of passing. In 2013 weather plagued the event in June forcing postponement of the event to later in the season where it was also rained out. The decision was made to run twin 150’s on August 31st making Labor Day weekend an unbelievable event. Joey Doiron stepped up his program in the first 150, and claimed a hard fought win over Karl Allard, Ben Rowe, David Oliver and DJ Shaw. Doiron came right back in the nightcap and did the unthinkable by sweeping the pair of 150’s on the night. DJ Shaw, Cassius Clark, David Oliver and Derek Ranstrom completed the top five. These events were pivotal in the battle of the PASS North championship, as Doiron ended up second on the season to Cassius Clark, while Shaw placed third.

A solid field of PASS North teams are expected to enter this event. Joining the PASS North Super Late Models will be WMMP’s own Late Models, Tigers, Strictly Stocks, Strictly Stock Mini’s and Kids Trucks. Post time is 5pm.

Three Stars of the Race Bonus Announced for ACT U.S.

Hebert, Ashline, Packard Honored

 The American Canadian Tour (ACT) has announced a “Three Stars of the Race” award program for the 2014 race season. The program is designed to recognize three “non-podium” race teams who have had an outstanding race. Finishing position is not necessarily a criterion. The award will be based on team and/or individual effort. The award may be presented to the team based on an achievement by a crew member, crew chief, spotter, driver or owner.  

 A panel of race officials will select three stars at each 2014 point-counting event, the International 300 to be held July 20, 2014 at the Airborne Park Speedway, the Bond ACT Invitational at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on September 20, 2014, and the Peoples United Bank Milk Bowl held at Thunder Road on October 4-5, 2014.

The teams picked will each receive a coupon for a free American Racer Tire valued at $125.00. From the various winners, one team will be selected as the single most outstanding star of the season. That team will be awarded $1,000.00 at the annual ACT Banquet of Champions.
