STARS TOURS - WHITE MOUNTAINS MOTORSPORTS

 “Thunder in the Mountains” and that just what it was as the Senior Tour Auto Racers rolled into White Mountains Motorsports Park on August 27th.  You could hear the echoes of the engines throughout the mountains as these vintage modifieds have a sound of their own!  STAR would walk the fans of WMMP back into time with vintage racing at its best!

The day started for STAR with warm-ups from 12 to 3, giving both divisions equal time on the track to get their cars ready for heats and features that would follow that night.

The first to hit the asphalt was the Sportsmen division for their heat race.  It would be Alan Zemla from Me in his #43 coupe (known as Fred) to take down the first checkered for the evening and the heat win for the Sportsmen division.

The Modifieds were lined up and ready for their heat race. It was a tight race with positions switching from lap to lap.  Gregg Massini from Ma in his #19 Vega Wagon made his move and took down the second checkered and the heat win for the Modified division.

Then it was time for the feature races to take place.  In the Sportsmen division it was Rookie Curt Snow from Ma in is #110 coupe to take the checkered and his first win for the Sportsmen division of STAR.  Art Merchant from Ma in his #64 coupe took a second and finishing off the pack with a third was Robert Harless from NY in his #8 sedan.   The coupes ruled that night in the Sportsmen division!  Top three were brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.

 In the Modified division it would be Jocelyn Laliberte from Quebec Canada in his #61QC Pinto to take the checkered and the feature win for the Modifieds and his first win with the STAR tour.  Charlie Lima from Ma in his #2X coupe and Tom Beauregard from Ct in his #51 Pinto battled for second. When the checkered came down it was Lima to pick up a second and Beauregard finished off with a third. Top three were brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.

 It was great to see in both divisions with first time winners in “Victory Lane”.  Congratulations Guys job well done!

STAR would like to thank White Mountains Motorsports Park and their entire staff for all their hospitality and a great day and night at WMMP!  See you next year!

STARS TOURS - HUDSON SPEEDWAY

On 8/7/16 Hudson Speedway in Hudson, NH was the scene for the tour of the second part of the  double header weekend.  STAR had just finished up with Monadnock Speedway the night before.  It was a special night at Hudson Speedway as it was the 14th “Annual Don Hayes Memorial”.  Mr. Hayes was the first photographer/videographer who was associated with the speedway from its first opening season in 1948 until 2001.  STAR was proud to be part of this special night!

STAR started their day with warm-ups for both divisions and the evening would bring the tour 2 10-lap heats and 2 20-lap features.

The Sportsmen were on tap first for their 10-lap heat.  It would be Art Merchant from Ma in the #64 coupe to take another victory and his second heat win for that weekend.

The Modifieds were ready to take to the asphalt for their 10-lap heat.  It would be Charlie Lima from Ma in the 2X coupe to take the second checkered for the tour that night and the heat win for the modified division.

At feature time the Sportsmen were up first for their 20-lap feature.  It was Doug Sogolow from Ct in the #70 coupe to take the 20-lap feature and capture the win for the Sportsmen division.  Michael Keddy from NH in the #50 coupe pulled a very close second and rounding out the pack with a third was Skip Stearns from NH in his #7X coupe.  “COUPES RULED” that night!  Top three were brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.

The Modifieds were staged and ready to go at their 20-lap feature.  When the last checkered flag flew it was on Tom Beauregard from Ct in his #51 Pinto to take the victory for the Modified feature.  George Baldwin from Ma in his #LL Nova closed in with a very close second and right behind him was Scott Poirier from Ct in his #73 Pinto to top the pack off with a third. Top three were brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.

STAR would like to thank Hudson Speedway and their entire staff for all their hospitality and a great night of racing!

STAR TOURS - MONADNOCK SPEEDWAY

Monadnock Speedway was the first stop for the Senior Tour Auto Racers double header weekend on 8/6/16.  Rain was in the forecast but members took a chance and it was worth it!  NO RAIN, SUNSHINE all day and it was off to racing!

STAR started their day with warm ups and then the evening would bring the tour 2 heats and 2 features.

The Sportsmen hit the track first for their heat race.  Rookie Art Merchant from Ma in the #64 coupe ruled the pack and took down the first checkered for the evening.

The Modifieds were staged and ready for their heat race.  Neck to neck Scott Poirier from Ct in the #73 Pinto and Gregg Massini from Ma in the #19 Vega battled for the win.  It was a photo finish with Massini taking the win by inches and picking up the second checkered for the tour.

At feature time it was the Sportsmen to take the track first.  Lap after lap the positions changed, but when the checkered dropped it was on Rick MacDowell from Ma in his #76 Camaro to take the victory.  Alan Zemla from Me in the #43 coupe took a second and rounding out the pack with a third was Robert Harless from NY in the #8 sedan.  MacDowell made his victory lap and was brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with a trophy.

Then it was time for the Modifieds to hit the asphalt for their feature.  The pack drove a tight race lap after lap until Danny Ferland from NH in the #194 Pinto made his move to the outside and to the checkered for the Modified division.  James Allen from Ma in the #44 Mustang picked up a second and rounding out the pack with a third was Tom Beaugaurd from Ct in the #51 Pinto.  Ferland took is victory lap and was brought track side for an out of car interview and awarded with a trophy.

Star would like to thank Monadnock Speedway and their entire staff for all their hospitality and for a great night of racing!
