Cahoon Earns “King of the Mountain” Title as Laflamme Wins Barnburner
N. Woodstock, NH — St. Johnsbury, VT’s Stacy Cahoon showed he’s truly the ageless wonder of N. Woodstock’s White Mountain Motorsports Park by capturing the “King of the Mountain” title at WMMP Championship Night presented by C&S NAPA Auto Parts and Sanel NAPA on Saturday, September 26. The 62-year-old Cahoon sewed up his sixth Foley Oil & Propane Late Model crown with a fourth-place finish as youngster Christian Laflamme edged Mike “Beetle” Bailey for the victory.
Cahoon entered the 50-lap Late Model season finale with a three-point edge over Groveton’s Quinny Welch, who had won the previous five titles. The veteran started ninth and slowly picked his way through the field while Welch struggled to find the handle on his machine.
At the front, the event was a barnburner. Whitefield’s Laflamme grabbed the top spot at the initial green flag from polesitter Jon Savage. South Barre, VT’s Bailey quickly got the second spot and went to Laflamme’s inside. But while Bailey appeared to have the faster car, Laflamme held strong on the preferred high-side.

West Swanzey, NH’s Kirk Alexander, the winner of the last MRS event at the track, grabbed the early lead off the outside pole. Alexander easily paced the field for the first half of the event while Williams and Bellingham, MA’s Woody Pitkat worked their way through the field.

Bourgeois Rolls to Third Straight Win in 7-Eleven Dwarf Car Special
N. Woodstock, NH — St. Johnsbury, VT’s Colby Bourgeois made short work of his competition to win the 50-lap 7-Eleven Dwarf Car Special at N. Woodstock, NH’s White Mountain Motorsports Park on Saturday, August 15. It was the third straight win for Bourgeois and his fourth of the year on 7-Eleven of Lincoln Night.
Bourgeois, who entered the night as co-point leader with Easton, NH’s Jason Wyman, rolled off 10th for the main event. However, the youngster needed just five laps to carve through the field. After slicing and dicing his way to the runner-up spot, he flew around the outside of Gilmanton, NH’s Tommy Smithers to grab the lead on the sixth go-around.
“Downtown” Bobby Brown of Lincoln, NH followed Bourgeois up the outside into the runner-up spot, and after a yellow on lap 13 for Paul Marsan’s backstretch spin, Brown stayed glued to Bourgeois’s back bumper until a competition caution on lap 25 for teams to refuel their cars. Meanwhile, despite getting stuck in traffic early, Wyman was able to find a hole and move into the third spot by the time the yellow flew.
