Well, it is finally here. The new season is upon us and we have already finished two races, one at each track: Bear Ridge Speedway and Legion Speedway. The 600 class has been very light in the car count and the 500 division having another good year for car count.
With the 600 lite car counts rookie JT Descoteaux took the first race in a two car battle with Tony Shaw finishing second at Bear Ridge Speedway. This was JT's first race in the 600 mini sprints doing a great job holding the point throughout. The second race at Legion speedway Kyle Belliveaue sped to the front of the 4 car starting grid to win the race with Tony Shaw finishing second. Rookies Lauren Boisvert and Robyn Boisvert made their first start in the 600 mini sprints holding their own finishing 3rd and 4th respectively.
The 500 class had its typical 15 car lineup the first week at Bear Ridge. Matt Hoyt finished last year strong and looks to be the one to beat this year as he took the win of the first race. Brent Warren charged hard to finish second with Shawn King finishing third. The racing was tight with a few cars dropping out due to technical challenges. The top finishing rookie was Eddie Puffinberger, who finished 6th.
The second week had 16 cars at Legion speedway for the 500 division. Again Matt Hoyt takes the victory easily by straightaway. Tom Chaffee gave a good fight but in the end Matt just over powered the field taking the win. Brent Warren again finished in the top three again. The top finishing rookie this week was again Eddie Puffinberger, finishing 7th. All in all it was a good afternoon of racing with fun had by all.
The O'Reilly Auto Parts Granite State Mini Sprints are off this weekend for the Memorial day holiday. We will back racing again next weekend at Legion Speedway with warmups starting at 2 and racing at 3 pm. Hope to see you there.
