NOSTALGIA NIGHT AT WATERFORD SPEEDBOWL

Modified Feature Winner Rich Mosher #17 Sportsmen Feature Winner Bob Seward #69B
   

It was “Nostalgia Night” at the Waterford Speedbowl on July 26th.  The weather was questionable as rain and high winds were predicted.  It was raining all around the Bowl but luckily missed the Bowl letting the races get in that evening.

The house was packed with fans and so were the pits with tours and Waterford regulars.  Senior Tour was on hand with 22 vintage race cars from all over New England to give the fans a touch of the “Good Ole Days”.   STAR started their day with afternoon warm ups and then at 5:00 STAR staged on the midway to let the fans see the cars up close before the night racing began.  Thank you to the members who displayed their cars for the fans.  Sorry the midway was full and all cars could not get up on the midway, but it was good because there were fans in the pits talking to the STAR members there, so it made out good for all STAR members.

It was nice to see Bob Potter, sixth time track champion at the Waterford Speedbowl join in to have some fun with STAR in Richard Chaplin #72 coupe.

At race time it was the Sportsmen to hit the track first for their feature race. It was Bob Seward from Ma in his #69B coupe to take down the first checkered that evening.  John Mulcahy from Ma took a very close second and to round out the pack with a third was Robert Harless from NY in his #8 sedan. Seward was brought trackside for and out of car interview and awarded with a trophy.

The Modifieds were staged and ready to take the asphalt for their feature race. It was hometown boy Rich Mosher in his #17 coupe to take the victory for the Modifieds but only by inches as Scott Poirier from Ct in his #73 Pinto took a very close second.  To round out the pack with a third was Alec Gause from NH in his #75 Pinto.  Gause has just moved up from the Sportsmen to the Modifieds this year and I can see he can hold his own.                   

 STAR would like to thank Waterford Speedbowl and its’ complete staff for all their hospitality and a great night of racing.

 

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   
   

 

 

 

STAR WALKS SEEKONK SPEEDWAY BACK INTO TIME

   

   

Seekonk Speedway “The Action Track of the East” was the next stop for the Senior Tour Auto Racers on July 12.  One by one STAR rolled into the pits of Seekonk Speedway with 23 vintage stock cars from all areas of the North East. 

STAR brought real history back to Seekonk Speedway as the Murray family displayed for STAR on the midway their original Volkswagen that ran at Seekonk back in the days, she was an eye catcher.  Richie Murray original driver was on hand to greet the fans and later son Rob Murray took a few laps around the oval once more. 

It was nice to see so many fans, past drivers , Seekonk drivers and crewmembers visit the STAR pit area to share stories and talk to the STAR drivers and view up close STAR’s  beautiful restored racecars.

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

Like I said “The Action Track of The East” and there was no exceptions, STAR had their own action.  The first to hit the asphalt was the Modified division for their heat race.   Rich Mosher from CT in is #17 coupe battled Darryl Dutch from RI in his #6 coupe for the win.  With only 2 laps to go, Dutch spun out giving the field a new start.  When the checked came down it was on Mosher to take the first victory for the tour that evening.   Brian Robie from NH in his #7 Pinto took down second place and to top of the pack with a third was James Allen from Ma in his #46 Monza.   

The Sportsmen were already hitting the track for their heat race.  On the green John Mulcahy from Ma in his #57 Mustang took to the lead with Doug Sologow from Ct in his #70 coupe on his tail.  Lines shifted positions changed and when the checkered came down it was on Doug Sologow with his first win with the Senior Tour Auto Racers.  Alan Zemla from Me in his #43 coupe took second and Joe Keefner from Ma in his #99 Gremlin finished off third.

At feature time it was the Modifieds to hit the track first.  Positions changed from lap to lap but when the checkered came down it was on hometown boy Charlie Lima from Ma in his 2X coupe to take down the victory for the Modifieds.  Brian Robie from NH in his #7 Pinto took another second place finish with his new car and to finish off the pack with a third was Darryl Dutch from RI in his #6 coupe.  Top three went to trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies. 

The Sportsmen were lined up and ready to go. Lap after lap positions changed but when the flag came down it was on Rick MacDowell from Ma in his #76 Camero to take down the Sportsmen Feature.  John Mulcahy from Ma in his #57 Mustang picked up a second and Tammy Barboza from Ma in her #10 Pinto took a very close third. Top three went to trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies. 

STAR would like to thank Seekonk Speedway and their entire staff for all their hospitality and a great night of racing.  Also thank them for the great photo album that they posted on facebook of the STAR cars.  Log onto Senior Tour Auto Racers facebook page and view over 400 photos of STAR at Seekonk.

Somebody higher up must have had a talk with Mother Nature, because it was one of the best nights for racing weather wise.   Senior Tour Auto Racers were on tap at the Lee USA Speedway in Lee NH on June 20th as 18 cars hauled from all over the east coast.  Cars hauled in from as far as New York to the board line of Maine.  Star filled the infield from one end to the other with all different types of cars for the fans to enjoy.   And as always you could hear the laughter and the joking going on out of this group.  Never a dull moment with these guys!

Star started their day with 2 rounds of practice and then Lee USA brought all divisions that night onto the track for an autograph session.  Lee opened up the gates to let the fans come down to meet all the drivers and view the cars up close.  It was great to see the Star members signing autographs on tee shirts, photos, and flags and talking to the fans.  Many of the Star drivers were interviewed by the New England Racing Show, a local TV channel that covers short track racing in New England.  This will be shown in next week’s show and I will post so everyone can enjoy. The children were getting a big kick by sitting in the cars but I think the drivers got just as much a kick out of it as the children. 

Then it was off to racing!  Star was scheduled for 2 heats and 2 features.  The first to hit the track was the Sportsmen division for their heat race.  The green came down and it was race time.  John Mulcahy from Ma in his #57 Mustang , who by the way received the hardship award for season 2013 for all his bad luck mechanical wise, drove to the front and took down the first checkered for the tour that evening.  I told John you must have made a visit over the winter to “The Boehler Garage”.   Mike Horch from NH in the #1/4 car pulled a very close second.  Looks like Mike has his set up straighten out because this one was on rails.  No more spin outs for Mike!   Robert Harless from NY in his #8 Sedan topped the pack off with a third place.  The Modifieds were lined up and ready to hit the asphalt for their heat race.   It was a photo finish as Ed Mulligan from RI in his #61 Pinto drove to the win with Scott Poirier from Ct in his #73 Pinto just inches away to take down a second.  Right behind Poirier was Bobby Turner from Me in his #7 Pinto rounding out the pack with a third. 

When it was time for the features the first to hit the asphalt was the Sportsmen where Joe Gause in his “Big Bad Nova” took down the third checkered for the tour that evening.  Robert Harless from NY in the #8 sedan took a very close second and to top off the pack with a third was Alec Gause from NH with his #75 Vega.  The winner was brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with a trophy.  In the Modified division it was Charlie Wilcox from Ct in his #19 Pinto to take down the win for the Modified division.  Ed Mulligan from RI in his #61 Pinto closed in with a close second and rounding off the pack with a third was Danny Ferland from NH with his #21 Pinto.  The winner was brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with a trophy.

Senior Tour Auto Racers would like to thank Lee USA Speedway and their entire staff for all their hospitality and a “Great Night of Racing”.  Star will be returning to Lee USA Speedway for their second appearance on August 29th.
