STAR MEMBER HONORED

Following last weekends victory at Waterford Speedbowl, STAR members Gregg Massini, David Moulthrop, and Dave Wright took their 1985 NASCAR vintage Winston Cup, Tim Richmond, tribute car to The Eastern States Exposition in Springfield, MA on Sunday the 13th where they were one of twelve cars honored in Cruisin New Englands "Circle of Champions" . The event qualified them for Super Wheels Showdown on City Hall Plaza in Boston, Saturday October 4th. While honored, there is some disapointment that it falls on the same day as the STAR final at Twin State.

 

 

 

 

 

 

WATERFORD SPEEDBOWL - MOTOR JAM 2014

 
Sportsmen Feature Winner - Tammy Barboza Modified Feature Winner - Gregg Massini

 

On Sunday September 8th Waterford Speedbowl held a special show “Motor Jammin 2014” Ct’s largest custom car, truck and bike show hosted by radio station Jammin 107.7.  There was activity on the midway with bands, in the parking lots were beautiful classic cars, trucks, and bikes and on the track there was racing, burn outs and much more, something for everyone.  If you missed this show you missed a great time!!  STAR would like to thank all the members and cars that showed up for this non-point show to support the club. 

It was great to see the crowd flood in from the car show as they heard the stock cars on the track.  The stands were filled with fans to see the vintage cars and other shows on the track.  Stars’ day started with a 10 lap heat.  Scott Poirier from Ct in his #73 Pinto showed the modifieds how it was done and took the win for the Modified division for the heat race.  Rick MacDowell from Ma in his #76 Camero ruled the sportsmen and took down the heat race for the Sportsmen division. 

At feature time STAR rolled on the track Modifieds and Sportsmen running together “A Race Within a Race” just like back in the old days.  I could not get over how great these guys ran together.  You couldn’t tell who was a Modified or Sportsmen!! When the checkered came down it was on Gregg Massini from Ma in his #19 Vega Wagon to take the feature win for the modifieds that day.  Ed Mulligan from RI in his #61 Pinto took a second and to top off the pack with a third was Scott Poirier from Ct in his #73 Pinto.  In the Sportsmen division it was Tammy Barboza from Ma in her #10 Pinto to lead the Sportsmen across the finish line and take down the win for the Sportsmen division.  Dion Doyle from Ct in his #19 Pinto took a very close second and to top off the field was new member Brad Baxter from RI in his #58 coupe.  

STAR would like to thank Waterford Speedbowl and Jammin 107.7 for a great day of racing!

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT - LEE USA SPEEDWAY

 

Modified Feature Winner - Bobby Turner Sportsmen Feature Winner - Dwight Lowes
 

It was “Back to School Night” and “Rides for Kids Night” at the Lee USA Speedway on August 29th. . Senior Tour Auto Racers was part of the program as they rolled into Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH for their second appearance for the 2014 season.  What a night it was as 21 vintage racers filled the pit area of Lee USA Speedway.  One by one they hauled into the pit area.  There was Coupes, Sedans, Pintos, Vegas, Mustangs, big blocks, small blocks, just about every type of vintage racecar was present and ready to go.  It was so great to see so many different states representing STAR that night, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York!!!!!

 To start the day Star had two sets of warm-ups.   First the Sportsmen division took their time on the track to get ready for the evening events and then the modified division took their turns also getting the cars ready for the night racing.   Then it was off to racing as the STAR Sportsmen took to the track first.   Gary Moore from NH in the #7 Pinto and Alan Zemla from Me in the #43 coupe battled for first place.   Skip Stearns from NH in the #7X coupe and Robert Harless from NY in the #8 sedan were right on the tail of the leaders.   Just one slip up and it would be anyone’s win.  When the checkered waved it was on Moore to take the first victory for the tour that evening.  Zemla pulled a very close second and Stearns pulled enough forward to pull of the pack with a third.

Now it was time for modifieds to hit the track for their heat race.  When the green came down it was Brian Robie from NH in the #7 Pinto and Scott Poirier from Ct in the #73 Pinto to go side by side.  Cars shifted for second and third place and when the checkered came down it was on Brian Robie  to take the second victory for the tour that evening.  Scott Poirier closed in with a close second and to top off the pack was James Allen from Ma in his #46 Monza. 

It was time for Lee USA Speedway to have the “Rides for Kids” time.  I want to thank all the STAR cars that went out on the track to join in this event and there were a lot of you!!  The children love to ride in the vintage cars and you could see them fighting which one to get into.  Thanks go out to the members that participated in the “Rides for Kids.”

Then it was time for the feature races of STAR.  The Sportsmen hit to the asphalt first for their 15-lap feature.   It was Dwight Lowes from Ma in the #50 coupe to take the lead on the pack and the third checkered for the tour that evening.  Mike Horsch from NH in the 1/4 coupe slotted into second with Robert Harless from NY finishing off the pack with a third.  Dwight Lowes was brought to trackside for an out of car interview and award with the first place trophy.

 Now the modifieds were hitting the track for their 15-lap feature.   When the green came down it was off to racing for the modifieds . The pack was tight with half way to go as Bobby Turner from Me in his #7 Pinto and Ed Mulligan from RI in the #61 Pinto went side by side.  Rich Mosher from CT in the #17 coupe and James Allen from Ma in the #46 Monza diced it up for third place. When the checkered came down it was on Bobby Turner for the win for the modifieds that evening.  Mulligan  finished off with a close second and Mosher holding on to third.  Bobby Turner was brought to trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with the first place trophy.

Star would like to thank Lee USA Speedway and their entire staff for a great night of racing and also thank them for including Star in the FUN EVENTS.

STAR DOES ALS CHALLENGE - WHITE MOUNTAINS MOTOR SPORT PARK

“Thunder in the Mountains” White Mountains Motor Sports Park was the next stop for the Senior Tour Auto Racers on August 23rd.  It was brisk and you could feel in the air that fall was just around the corner.  The season is winding down and before we know it will be winter. 

Star started their day with practice from 1:00 till 3:00.  The evening would bring the tour heats and features.

At race time it was the Sportsmen to hit the track first for their heat race.  Skip Stearns from NH in his #7X coupe took the lead and the first checkered for the tour that night.  Alan Zelma from Me in his #43 coupe and Joe Gause from NH in his #0 Nova battled for second place, with Zelma picking up second and topping off the pack with a third was Joe Gause.  The Modifieds were ready to hit the asphalt for their heat race.  When the green came down it was James Ferland from NH in his #194 Pinto to shoot out and take the lead and the second checkered for the tour that evening.  Scott Poirier from Ct in his #73 Pinto closed in for a close second and rounding off the pack with a third was Brian Robie from NH in his #7 Pinto. 

At feature time, Brian Robie from NH in his #7 Pinto took down the checkered for the modified division, with James Allen from Ma in his #46 Monza pulling off a second and Ed Mulligan from RI in his #61 Pinto finishing off the modified division with a third.  In the Sportsmen it was Rocky Cusanelli from NH in his #51 coupe taking down the win for the Sportsmen division.  Skip Stearns from NH in the #7X coupe took a second and Alan Zemla from Me in the #43 finished off the sportsmen with a third. 

But then the STAR Tour was not done for the evening.  President Charlie Lima, Vice President Skip Stearns and Race Director Mary Lima had been challenged by member Charles Wilcox to do the ALS ice bucket challenge all together.  So the challengers, challenged the members to do the ice bucket challenge that night and they accepted.  So after the feature race members Charlie Lima, Skip Stearns, Mary Lima, James Allen, Brian Robie, Ed Mulligan, Scott Poirier, John Mulcahy, Alan Zemla and Rocky Cusanelli took the challenge on the front stretch of White Mountains Motor Sports Park in front of the fans.  You could hear the fans cheering them on.  It was a lot of fun for a great cause.

Star would like to thank White Mountains Motor Sports Park and their entire staff for all their hospitality and allowing us to do our challenge at their speedway!
