LeBlanc Dominates for NEMST Win at White Mountain
N. Woodstock, NH — Berlin, NH’s Cody LeBlanc went to the front early and stayed there to win the North East Mini Stock Tour (NEMST) “King of the Mountain 50” at White Mountain Motorsports Park on Saturday, July 25. The 2018 NEMST Champion took the lead from polesitter Issac Rollins on a lap-4 restart and left the field in the dust for his first victory in nearly two years.
Leblanc earned the fourth starting spot in qualifying for the 50-lap main event and was already up to second when the first caution flew on lap 4 for Joe Katula’s spin. When the green flag came back out, LeBlanc flew past Rollins like a man possessed, determined to break his winless streak.

PASS SUPER LATE MODELS AND PASS MODS AT RIVERSIDE SPEEDWAY, GROVETON, NH ON FRIDAY, JULY 24, 2020
Groveton, NH – Johnny Clark reminded everyone in attendance Friday night at Riverside Speedway why he is a six time champion as he dominated the Pro all Stars Series first visit to the 1/4 mile since 2018. Clark, who has not been first to the checkers since 2016, fended off challenges from several drivers but was never seriously challenged in the 150 lap tilt. “It’s been a long time since I have had a car that good,” he exclaimed in victory lane, “it was fun, but there was oil or something on the track those last few laps and we almost slipped and gave it away.”
As dominating as Clark was leading the entire 150 lap contest, it wasn’t as easy as it looked. “We made wholesale changes after the first practice, and it was just terrible. I knew, we all knew after the second practice we had to put it back. It was not easy, there were a lot of changes. I’m glad we did!”
