On November 8th the Senior Tour Auto Racers closed their 2014 racing season with their annual banquet.  This is STAR'S 16th season and it was great to see a large gathering of members and family come together to close out the season in a fashionable way.  It was great to see members from all over New England attend to bring the season to a close.  The banquet was held at Whites of Westport in Westport, Ma.  Over 60 awards were presented to the Star Members for their dedication and true support of this great club.   It has been an outstanding season for the Star Organization with unbelievable car counts every weekend.  Star tours every weekend to all the New England tracks to bring "Vintage Racing at it's Best". As members sat down to a four coarse meal, they were entertained with a slide show of over 300 candid photos from all the tracks and shows for the 2014 season, photos never seen by the members.  You could hear the laughter and jokes as the members let down their hair to have a great time!

 

STAR opened up it's banquet with the introduction of the Officers and Board of Directors.  It was great to see the present and a lot of the pass officers in attendance. Then it was time for the awards presentations.  Appreciation Awards to members who dedicate their time and hard work to the organization.  Special awards, Rookie of the Year, Most Improved Sportsmen Driver, Most Improved Modified Driver, Hardship Award, Most Events Attended Still and Running and then it was ballot awards.  The following categories were voted on by all the members, Most Original Car, Best Appearing Car, Sportsmanship Award and Best Crew Chief.  As you can see  the Special Awards are covered and no one knows the results until the night of the banquet.  The suspense of who would receive the award has always been thrilling!  Heat awards - they worked hard for these and the best man wins!!!! Point awards, Star is proud to say they had 5 Champions this year and it was funny that there was one from each state. Maine Alan Zemla, New Hampshire Skip Stearns, Massachusetts James Allen,  Rhode Island Ed Mulligan and Connecticut Scott Poirier.  So for the first time STAR was challenged to a Face book Shootout and STAR accepted the challenge.  So STAR did a 10 lap which was a ten day, a lap a day shootout challenge.  The state that got the most likes won the Face book Challenge.  I have to say it was so much fun and great to interact with so many new people on Face book from the East Coast to the West Coast.

"REMEMBER THE PINES" - PINES SPEEDWAY REUNION

The Groveland Historical Society held it's 12th annual "Pines Speedway Reunion" on Saturday October 4, 2014.  The setting was on the beautiful Merrimac River, in Groveland, Ma on the original site where once the Pines Speedway sat.  The weather was cold and rainy but it did not stop the crowd pouring into the site of the old track to pay tribute to this great but not forgotten speedway.  Where ever you turned you could see some of the greatest drivers from the New England area.  Under the large white tent were special exhibits, vintage photos, scrapbooks and memorabilia of the Pines Speedway. This years honorees were Bruce Haskell, Ron Bouchard, Jim Landry, Dick Edgerly, and Harry Harriman.  It was great to see so many Star cars and members in attendance.  On hand to represent Star was Dwight Lowes #50 coupe, Charlie Lima #10 Pinto, Richard Eastman #0 Pinto, Skip Stearns #7 Pinto,  Mike Horsch #1/4 coupe and John Monaghan #5 coupe. Very popular was Richard Eastman's display trailer in dedication to the late Ollie Silva.  The trailer was filled with photos and trophies that Ollie had received.   The afternoon festivities started with the annual starting of the engines as a tribute to the Pines Speedway.  If you missed this show you missed out on a great time!

 

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

 

WESTON CAR SHOW

On September 27th Weston held its 20th year annual car show in memory of Vic Yerardi who was one of the founders of this show and also one of the founders of the Vintage Celebration at Loudon, NH.  Each year this show gets bigger and more renown. This show is a Rotary fundraiser that benefits the Rotary Scholarship fund.  This year there was a flock of race cars from Sprint cars to Indy cars. In addition there were a number of Ferrariís, Mercedes Benz, Jaguars, Rollsí as well as Chevrolets, Studebakers, Fords, and everything in between.  

On hand to support STAR was President Charlie Lima with his 10 Pinto and Board of Director James Allen with his #46 Monte Carlo.  The weather could not have been any better and the crowd was amazing.  It was a very prosperous day for Star, as memberships were passed out, along with selling of Star clothing, dash for cash raffle tickets and even collecting donations for the Star toy drive.  

Letís get back to our members and just how busy they were all day.  James and Karen Allen were busy all day putting children in their car so they could take pictures. Tammy was just as busy putting children in the #10. It was nice to see so many pictures being taken by the parents.  The media was on hand taking photos of the children lined up to get to sit in the vintage stock cars. 

Star would like to thank James Allen, and Charlie Lima for all their dedication and support for this show.  It was a total success!
