STAR HOLDS SEMINAR

At our annual meeting STAR elected a committee to help service STAR car owners with problems with their cars.  Committee members range all over New England to help service members in their area.  STAR feels if a car is running good and handles great it will better our shows and give a driver more time to have fun with their car, and this is what this committee is out to accomplish.


Chairperson is Bobby Turner from Maine, Bob Donahue and Skip Stearns from New Hampshire, Charlie Lima from Massachusetts, and Scott Poirier from Connecticut.

 

The committee held its first seminar on March 18 in Londonderry, NH, where they cover the basic setups for both leaf spring and coil springs cars.  STAR would like to thank the committee for their outstanding presentation to the STAR members.  The committee will be working all season to help service any member who needs help in any way that they need to make sure their car is setup properly.


So to all STAR members if you need assistance do not hesitate to give them a call or at the tracks just ask them for assistance and they will be glad to assist you with your questions.

STAR SADDEN BY LOSS OF LONG TIME MEMBER - KEN SMITH

STAR is saddened to hear that we have loss a long time STAR member, Ken Smith who was one of the founders of the New England Super Modified Association, NESMRA.  Ken was also a big part of the Pines Speedway Reunions. This has been a great loss to STAR and the racing community.  We send out our thoughts and prayers to his entire family.



STAR'S 17TH ANNUAL TOY DRIVE DAY
On December 21, 2016 Senior Tour Auto Racers once more made their appearance to the Pace Head Start Schools in the City of New Bedford, Ma for their annual toy drive day.  This will be the 17th year that STAR has been donating toys to the needy children at Christmas time. The children were awaiting for Santa to come and give them a Christmas that they would not have had.  But because of the members of STAR we were able to once more make the lives of these small children a dream come true.
All year long Toy Drive Chairperson Tammy Barboza has been collecting toys and donations to buy toys to service about 300 children.  STAR would like to thank the following for their support as being elves and helping with the toy drive:  Matthew Barboza, Michael Barboza, Charlie Lima, Mary Lima, Dwight Lowes, Bill McAvoy and Kevin McCarthy.  A special thank you goes out to Dennis Lowes for playing the role of STAR's Santa again this year.  And hats off to our Chairperson Tammy Barboza for all her hard work and dedication to the STAR Toy Drive, without her this would not have happen. 
A very special Thank You to the STAR members who had a big heart and the thought of giving.  None of this would have happen if it was not for all your support.
STAR has already begun the 2017 season for collecting toys and donations.  The ages of the children we service is from 3 to 5 years old.
Help support the STAR toy drive by bringing a toy to our meets or by mailing donations to Senior Tour Auto Racers marked for Toy Drive.  THANK YOU TO ALL!
STAR CLOSES 2016 RACING  - THOMPSON WORLD SERIES
This was the first year STAR was invited to be part of the Sunoco World of Series at the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park and what a great night it was!  STAR cars from a over New England and Canada were part of the show to showcase the rich tradition which has made this event and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park what it is today.  It was like walking back into time, with a full field of cars running side by side and giving a flawless show!
Congratulations goes out to our winners Darryl Dutch from RI in his #6 Pinto for taking down the last checkered for the Modified Division for 2016 and Congratulations to Michael Keddy from NH in his #50 coupe for taking down the last checkered for the Sportsmen divison. 
But the weekend was not over for STAR, President Charlie Lima was on display the entire weekend so the fans could enjoy the vintage car up close, reminiscing over days long past and names forgotten. 
We at STAR are proud to announce that we will once again be part of the 2017 Sunoco World of Series at the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on October 13, 2017!  MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!!
