MacMichael Scores his Third Victory...Scott MacMichael celebrated his third Sportsman Modified victory this past Saturday on the Victor Johnson Memorial Event after taking the lead on a lap 20 restart despite pressure from Todd Patnode.   Tom Carey took the checkers for the Super Stock main event as did Mini Stock rookie Cameron Sontag.   Other winners included Solomon Brow for his first career Young Gun, Lightning Stock Kyle Boniface and Marshall Usher in the Thunder Stocks.  Veteran Dwight Jarvis show the Valenti Modified Racing Series how it is done taking the victory for their 100 lap feature event.         

Dana Smith set the pace for the Sportsman Modified feature with Rookie JT Cloutier on the outside. Smith quickly took the lead as Cloutier and Kim Rivet ran single file behind him. On lap nine a caution came out as Nathan Johnson took a hard hit into the turn three wall after suffering a mechanical problem. On the restart, Smith regained the lead as MacMichael pressured him for the number one spot. A lap nineteen caution came out setting up the field for another restart where MacMichael took a good jump on the green to get ahead of Patnode bringing the inside line with him as Rivet moved into third.  Patnode put the pressure on as Bill Kimball put the heat on Rivet for third.  At the checkers it was MacMichael capturing the win, followed by Patnode, Rivet, Kimball and Brian Chapin.

Alyssa Rivera got a great start passing pole sitter Dave Striebel for the lead.  The race was halted immediately on lap two when Geoff Rollins running third hit the wall as multiple cars headed to the pit area for repair. On the restart, Rivera  continued in the number spot as Tom Carey III began the pursuit for the lead. Rivera held the point leader of Carey off until lap thirteen leaving Rivera a battle for second with Striebel.  A battle for fourth brewed behind them between Ed Brehio III and Robert Hagar. As the final laps wound down, the top five safely got around a lap car to the checkers with Carey the victor followed by Rivera, Striebel, Brehio and Hagar.

In the Mini Stocks, it was a Young Gun graduate reunion as Justin Faford, Cameron Sontag and Joel Monahan making a pass on Eric Pomasko to all battle it out for the top three spots.  Faford holding on strong despite hard challenges from Sontag lead the way as Monahan felt the heat from Stebbins attempting the high side and low side to take away the third spot. With two laps two go, Stebbins made his move to inside to take over third as the battle continued for first with Faford trying to protect the number one spot from Sontag.  On the final lap into turn three, the two rookies of Faford and Sontag were wheel to wheel for the checkers.  At the wave of the checkered flag it was Sontag claiming first with Faford on the outside of Sontag for second followed by Stebbins, Monahan and Chris McTaggart.

Matt Somerville led the way for the Lightning Stock main event for the first lap until a caution came out ending the night for Chris Davis and Pat Houle.  On the restart, Somerville continued to the show the way as Kyle Boniface took over second followed by Tim Paquette. On lap five, Boniface took over the lead as Somerville was left to contend with Paquette for second.  Paquette took over second and was on a mission to catch Boniface as Somerville still running strong held the pressure from Richard Whipple. As laps wounded down, Paquette did not have enough to catch the point leader as Boniface claimed his seventh win of the season followed by Paquette, Somerville, Whipple and Hillary Renaud.

It looked to be Randy McGee’s night in the Thunder Stock main event as he led first ten laps until a caution came out setting the field for a restart.  On the restart, McGee took control of the lead spot for one more lap as Dave Greenslit got the run to make the pass leaving McGee with a mirror full of Marshall Usher.  A few laps later, Usher makes the pass on McGee for second with former champion Ed Lofland looking to challenge McGee. With two laps to go, the leader of Greenslit is taken out by the lap car of Doug Guy ending his night with heavy damage. On the two lap shoot out, Usher took over the number one spot claiming his third win and padding his point lead as McGee, Lofland, Paul Barnard and Tyler Janovsky followed.

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY TECH BULLETIN...To prevent tires from becoming loose which could jeopardize the safety of the competitors and fans, all divisions will be required to use racing type 1" lug nuts with exposed threads.

 

 

Mid-Week Wednesday Practice - Monadnck Speedway  will be holding Wednesday practice sessions starting on May 14th.  The fee for practice is $50 per car and $20 pit fee for each driver and crewmembers.  The hours will be from 2pm - 7pm.  This practice session is open to all competitors (including touring and competitors from other tracks). The minimum to hold a practice session will be ten teams, therefore teams will have to pre-register.  To pre-register and to ensure we have ten teams registered to cover the cost of the practice session, competitors will need to pay the $50 practice fee by Noon on the Tuesday prior to the Wednesday practice session. The fee can be paid on the race day event prior to the Wednesday session or competitors can call the office on Mondays (1pm-3pm) and on Tuesdays (10am-Noon) to pay by credit card. The practice fee is non-refundable. Pit admission fee will be collected on the day of the practice session.

Figure 8 Racing...The management of Monadnock Speedway is researching the idea of bringing a fan favorite of Figure 8 Racing to the 1/4 track.  The division would most likely be V6 type of vehicle, totally stock with the exception of adding safety features to the car. The vehicle would also be only one make/model allowed to compete with. The management would like to hear from all individuals who would be interested in competing in Figure 8 racing. If you are interested, please email the speedway at monadnockspeedway@ymail.com. ___________________________________________________________________________________________

Rain Cancellations: The speedway will do their best to make a decision around 10am on the day of an event regarding cancellations due to weather. If the forecast is for 30%-50% of scattered showers, the management may hold off in making a decision until Noon on regular events to allow further research in the hourly forecast and radar. The management looks at various weather outlets along with advisement from local airports.  The goal in making a decision early is to ensure that competitors do not waste time and travel costs if the weather looks like it will not cooperate.  If the forecast looks "iffy", the speedway recommends calling the office after 10am (for forecasts over 50% of showers/rain) or at Noon (for a forecast at 30%-50% for showers/rain). Race teams and fans can also sign up on rainedout.com to receive a text message or go to the speedway's facebook page. Please note: the webpage may be delayed up to a 1/2 hour in the update due to the dial up connection (we are working with Comcast to receive high speed so we can have quicker updates). To cancel an event is never an easy decision (unless their is no doubt it will rain). The owners request everyone to understand there are many factors in canceling an event including air temperatures and the timing of the predicted showers as it can affect the safety of the racers due a cool damp track surface along with the financial aspects for both the competitors and the track.

Special notice to competitors who are in divisions that is mandatory to have a AMB/MYLAPS transponder...The transponder technician requests that all transponders be charged and mounted during the practice sessions.  Last year we had issues with competitors not putting their transponders in for practice and then having problems with the transponder during the heats/features.  If the competitor has the transponder in and working during practice we will know if there are any issues with the transponder prior to the heats/features.  Competitors who do not follow this simple request to have a working transponder mounted in during practice will first get a warning. The second time the competitor will start in the rear of the field for the heats, the third time the competitor will start last in the feature. If after the third time a competitor has not followed the request, the competitor will not be scored for that event!  We appreciate your cooperation this will ensure that the scoring is properly done through the AMB system. THE TRANSPONDERS ARE MANDATORY FOR SPORTSMAN MODIFIEDS, SUPER STOCKS & MINI STOCKS. IF YOU NEED TO PURCHASE OR LEASE ONE GO TO MYLAPS.COM, THE SPEEDWAY DOES NOT SELL THEM.

Monadnock Speedway and Town Fair Tires have partnered up to offer the Young Gun competitors a discount for the new Young Gun tire.  The speedway management has decided, with guidance from Town Fair Tire, on a tire that is very comparable to the Bridgestone Fuzions which were the original track tire when the division started and was favored by the Young Gun teams. The Sumitomo Doral 195/60 HR14 and 195/65 HR15 is the official track tire for the Young Guns and will only be the tire allowed (competitors who have old Cooper Starfires from 2013 that are still in good condition may use them up to the May 31, 2014 event).  The Sumitomo Doral tire is available at all Town Fair Tire locations at a discounted price of $65 each.  When purchasing tires, tell the associate that they are discounted under Young Guns for the discounted price.   PLEASE NOTE: THE YOUNG GUN TIRE PROGRAM WILL BE ACTIVATED ON TUESDAY (APRIL 1ST) AT ALL TOWN FAIR TIRE LOCATIONS. MONADNOCK SPEEDWAY AND TOWN FAIR TIRE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE REGARDING THE ACTIVATION PROCESS OF THIS NEW PROGRAM.
