– FAST – FUN this is the slogan for Wiscasset Speedway and believe me when I
say this slogan fits. On July 16th
Senior Tour made it annual visit to Wiscasset Speedway in Wiscasset Maine. If you never been here you need to go! The racing is good and the track owners and
staff are unbelievable. If you want to
have fun and a great night of racing make a visit to Wiscasset Speedway you
will not regret it!
weather was hot and steamy and so were the cars! What a great night of racing! It was so great to see some members of the
Wicked Good Racing come and join in on the fun.
Two great clubs coming together, showing how vintage racing is done! Just a bit of history, most of these racers
were part of STAR before Wicked Good was opened so it was like old home week
with old and new friends once more getting together just like it was yesterday
and having the time of their lives. You
could hear the laughter and joking in the pits, which made me so proud to see how
vintage clubs can get together and have a great time!
day started with warm up for both divisions and the evening would bring the
tour 2 heats and 2 features.
up to hit the asphalt was the Sportsmen division for their heat race. It was Robert Harless from NY in his #8 sedan
showing the Sportsmen how it was done by taking down the first checkered for
the tour for the evening. The Modified were position and ready to hit the track
for their heat race. Hometown boy Ryan Chadwick
from Me in his #86 Sedan wheeled his way to the front and took down the second
checkered for the tour.
waiting for the features I walk up and down the pit area listening to the
laughter and stories from the members!
Watching members jumping in to give another member a hand.
feature time it was the Sportsmen up first for their 20 lap feature race. Alan
Zemla from Me in his #43 coupe took down the victory for the Sportsmen. Curt Snow from Ma in his #110 Coupe closed in
for a close second and rounded out the pack with a third was Charlie Lima from
Ma in his #2X coupe. All three were
brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.
Modifieds where staged and ready for their 20 lap feature. The pack was tight and these mod drivers
drove inches apart. When the last flag
came down it was on Bobby Turner from Me in his #7 Omni. Arthur Hannaford from Me in his #71 Malibu took
a second by inches and pulling off a third was Scott Tucker from Me in his #79
Pinto. All three were brought trackside
for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.
would like to thank Wiscasset Speedway and their entire staff for making our
visit to Maine an unforgettable one.
