HUDSON SPEEDWAY - PART 2 OF DOUBLE HEADER

 

Mike Horsch - Sportsmen Feature Winner Charles Grassie Jr. - Modified Feature Winner
   

The scene was Hudson Speedway in Hudson, NH on 8/10 for the second half of the “Double Header” weekend for the Senior Tour Auto Racers.   But before Star hit the track of Hudson Speedway they all gathered in the morning at member Skip Stearns’s home, which is only a few miles from the track, to give member Ed Mulligan a hand on fixing his car so he could run that day.  Member Ed Mulligan had mechanical problems with his car the night before at Star Speedway.  The group all gathered together that morning to make sure Ed’s car was up and running.  I have to laugh it looked like a car show on Mammoth Road that morning!  Stock cars were lined up on both side of the street, something you do not see in racing today!  This is why this group is a great group, it not always about racing, it is about friends and having a good time……

One by one Star filled the pit area of Hudson with very little room to spare. Star started their day at Hudson Speedway with warm ups, and the evening would bring the tour 2 heats and 2 features.

First to hit the asphalt was the Sportsmen division for their heat race. “The Three Hometown Boys” ruled this heat!   Skip Stearns from NH in his #7X coupe took down the checkered for the Sportsmen heat.   Joe Gause from NH in his #0 Nova took a second and Gary Moore from NH in the #7 Pinto topped the field off with a third.  The Modifieds were ready to hit the asphalt and lets’ see just who would take this one!  When the checkered flew it was on Brian Robie from NH in his #7 Pinto to pick up the win for the Modifieds.  James Allen from Ma in his #46 Monza pulled off a second and Scott Poirier from Ct in his #73 Pinto rounded the field off with a third.

At feature time it was the Sportsmen to go out first for their feature race.  Mike Horsch brings his 1/4 car to victory again, 54 years later but with Lee Allard at the wheel.  Lee Allard stated “I won my very first race with the same car at the same track 54 years earlier.”  Now that “History Repeating Its’ Self”.  Scott Keddy from NH in his #50 coupe pulled a second place finish and topping off the field with a third was Robert Harless from NY in his #8 sedan.  All three were brought track side for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.

Now it was time for the Modifieds to hit the track for their feature race.  Each lap the line would change and who would come in the top three?  When the checkered flag was dropped it was on Charles Grassie Jr. from Ma in his #15RI to pick up the last victory for the tour this long weekend.  Bobby Turner from Me in his #7 pulled in with a close second and right behind them was Brian Robie from NH in his #7 Pinto to round out the field with a third.  All three were brought track side for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.

What a weekend!  A great car count, great racing and all when home the way they came! SAFE AND SOUND!!!

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

STAR SPEEDWAY - PART 1 OF DOUBLE HEADER

Sportsmen Feature Winner - Skip Stearns Modified Feature Winner - Daniel Ferland
   

It was a very busy weekend for the Senior Tour Auto Racers, as it was a “Double Header Weekend”.  First up on Saturday 8/9 it was at the STAR Speedway in Epping, NH and then the Tour traveled on Sunday 8/10 to Hudson Speedway in Hudson, NH.  The car count was great and the racing was even better!  Cars from all over New England made the trip.

The weather was the best it has been all summer for both days.  It was nothing but “Green Flags” for the weekend.

Let’s start off with Star Speedway.  The day began with afternoon warm ups. The evening would bring the tour 2 heats and 2 features with an on track “Meet and Greet” with the Senior Tour Auto Racers.

Star Sportsmen rolled onto the track first for their heat race.  When the green came down it was off to racing for the Star Sportsmen.  It was anyone’s win as the positions changed from lap to lap.  When the checkered came down it was on Joe Gause from NH in the #0 Nova to take the first of many checkered flags for the weekend.  Board of Director Gary Moore from NH has been out ill for the first part of the season but it was great to see Gary back and see him take second place in the #7 Pinto. Topping off the pack with a third was Charlie Lima from Ma in the 2X coupe.

The Modifieds were up next for their heat race.  It was Bobby Turner from Me in his #7 to take down the second checkered for the tour.  Brian Robie from NH in his #7 Pinto pulled off a second and topping off the field with a third was Rich Mosher from CT in his #17 coupe.

Then it was Star’s Speedway‘s “Meet and Greet” time for the Senior Tour.  One by one Senior Tour cars came out filling up the complete front stretch to meet the fans of Star Speedway.  The track opened up the gates and let the fans come down to meet the Senior Tour drivers.  It was great to see autographs being signed and children sitting in the cars to have their pictures taken.  You could hear stories all up and down the front stretch from the fans and the drivers. It was a great time!

Then it was feature time as the Senior Tour Sportsmen hit the track first.  When the checkered came down it was on Skip Stearns from NH in his #7X coupe to take the victory for the Sportsmen division.  Charlie Lima from Ma in his 2X coupe took a very close second and rounding out the pack with a close third was Gary Moore from NH in the #7 Pinto.  The top three were brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.

The Modifieds were lined up and ready to hit the track for their feature.  When the last checkered for the evening came down it was Daniel Ferland. from NH in his #21 Pinto to take the victory for the Modified division.  James Ferland from NH in his #194 Pinto took a very close second and topping off the pack with a third was Alec Gause from NH in his #75 Vega.  The top three were brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.

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