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.

STAR BROUGHT HISTORY BACK TO MONADNOCK SPEEDWAY

 

Modified Feature Winner - Scott Poirier #73 Sportsmen Feature Winner - Alan Zemla #43
 

Modified Heat Winner - James Ferland #194 Sportsmen Heat Winner - Robert Harless #8
 

Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, NH was the scene for the Senior Tour Auto Racers on June 7th as cars from all over New England filled the pit area from one end to the other for their first of two stops to Monadnock Speedway for the 2014 season.  Cars rolled in from ME, NH, MA, RI, CT and NY.  It was hot, it was steamy but anything is better than rain.  Mother Nature finally gave all of us a break!

It was nice to see so many fans visit the Stars’ pit area taking photos and talking to the drivers.  It was also nice to see so many different types of cars on hand.  There were flatheads, coupes, sedans, Pintos, Gremlins, Vegas, and Mustangs something for everyone to enjoy and remember.

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

The first to hit the track was the Sportsmen for their heat race.  It would be Bob Harless from NY in his #8 sedan to claim the first victory for the tour that evening.  Skip Stearns from NH in his #7x coupe took down a close second and to top of the pack was Bob Seward from Ma in his #69b coupe to round out the pack with a third.  Now the Modifieds were ready to do their heat race.  When the checkered came down it was on Jamie Ferland from NH in his #194 Pinto to claim the victory for the Modified division, with his dad Danny Ferland from NH with his #21 Pinto with a very close second and rounding off the pack with a third was Scott Poirier from Ct with his #73 Pinto.

As you walked through the pit area you could hear the laughter and joking from the Star members, I knew they were up to something! You never know what they are up to, they never surprise me with things that they do.  Star member Peter Taloumis parked his beautiful #9 yellow flathead coupe right in the middle of the pit area and packed as many Star members he could inside.  You could see bodies out of the windows, doors and the rest of the members stood by the car, laughing and joking.  When I counted how many were inside it was 9 members in the #9!!!!

Then it was race time for the feature races for the Star group.  The Sportsmen hit the track first for their feature race.  It would be Alan Zemla from Me in his #43 coupe to take down the victory for the Sportsmen division.  Charlie Lima from Ma in his #10 Pinto took a second with Alec Gause from NH in his #75 Pinto rounding out the pack with a third.  The top 3 were brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies. 

The Modifieds were up next to do their feature race.  When the checkered came down it was on Scott Poirier from Ct in his #73 Pinto to claim the victory for the Modified division.  Gregg Massini from Ma in his #19 Vega pulled off a second and topping off the pack with a third was Ed Mulligan from RI in his #61 Pinto.  The top 3 were brought trackside for an out of car interview and awarded with trophies.  It was great to see so many states representing wins that evening, NY, NH, MA, ME, CT, and RI.

Senior Tour Auto Racers would like to thank Monadnock Speedway and their entire staff for all their hospitality and a “Great Night of Racing”.  Star will be returning to Mondanock on August 2nd for their second appearance.
