This past Friday night’s racing program at the Lee USA Speedway once again fell victim to inclement weather. Incoming thunderstorms forced the cancelation of the entire program. Racing action at Lee USA will resume this Friday night at 7:15PM. Besides the regular NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing program, the show will also feature the ever popular Quad Wars. Last season the NY team defeated the NH team, and have vowed to do it again. New Hampshire team captain Matt Smith has promised revenge and he and his teammates are determined to do what it takes to prevail.
Along with Quad Wars the Benson Hardware Small Block Supers will be on hand for their 30 lap feature event. Tommy Tombarello was the winner on the last outing. Defending champ Wayne Helliwell Jr. has been close on several occasions, but has yet to win his first feature this season. JR Baril is still considered to be the the favorite in the Prime Storage Late Model Sportsman despite being sidelined in the past two events. Tony Kawejsza won for the first time two weeks ago ahead of a hard charging Michele Fushpanski. Mike Williams, Patrick Tanguay, and Jim Shorey will lead the contingent of David’s Race Car and Components Hobby Stocks while 14 year old Danielle Simoneau will still be looking for her first feature win in the American Auto Ironman division. She was a close second to Jake Rheaume two weeks ago.
Due to last Friday night’s rainout, the N.E.M.A. Lites will be added to the week of June 22nd’s program. It will also be Scout Night. All Boy and Girl Scouts in uniform and their scout leaders will be admitted free. Whelen in conjunction with NH Safety week will also welcome all police and firefighters to the speedway free. The Lee Police Department will personally greet all incoming patrons and award seat belt wearers with a special prize. In addition to all that, it will be Autograph Night. Drivers will be made available for autographs.
Spectacular upcoming events at the Lee USA Speedway this summer include the Port City 100 presented by Laticrete on Friday, June 29th for the Valenti Modified Series, and the Firecracker 100 for the late model sportsman on Friday July 6th. On Tuesday, July 3rd, the Monster Trucks return along with a giant fireworks display.
Recently Haffner’s Oil and Gasoline have announced their sponsorship of the Ollie Silva Memorial Super Modified Classic is scheduled to be run on August 10th. This Friday’s event will get the green flag at 7:15PM. Tickets are $15 and kids under 12 get in free. Will be brought to you by “The MILL – 96.5″ Manchester’s Classic Hit Radio Station.
