Senior Tour Auto Racers





It was “Nostalgia Night” at The New London Waterford Speedbow in Waterford, Ct on July 27th, which was the next stop for the Senior Tour Auto Racers.  STAR started their day with warm ups for each division and then staged their vintage cars on the midway of the Speedbowl for the fans to get an up close feel of the cars and drivers before their feature races.  It was so great to see so many fans and past drivers of the Speedbowl stop by and say “hello” and talk to the owners about their cars. This has always been a huge hit and I was so glad to see that the new owner of the Speedbowl, Mr. Bruce Bemer continue this.

Then at feature time the cars rolled out of the midway and it was off to racing!  First up was the Sportsmen division where Bob Seward from Ma in his beautiful maroon coupe took down the first checkered for the evening.  Skip Stearns from NH in his #7 Pinto and Bob Harless from NY in his #8 sedan battled for second.  When the flag came down it was Stearns taking second and Harless with a very close third.  Seward was brought trackside for an interview and awarded with a trophy.

The Modifieds were lined up and ready to hit the asphalt.  It would be “Hometown Boy” Scott Poirier from Ct in his #73 Pinto to take the second checkered for the evening and the feature win for the modifieds.  Jody Tripp from Ma in the #04 Pinto took a very close second and to top the pack off with a third was James Allen from Ma in his #44 Mustang.  Poirier was brought trackside for and out of car interview and awarded with a trophy. Both winners were brought to Victory Lane for a photo shoot. 

STAR would like to thank The New London Waterford Speedbowl and their entire staff for all their hospitality and a night to remember!
