April 27, 2008 - TRC

After a morning of brief showers, the rains stopped long enough Sunday afternoon for Speedway 95 to start itís racing program with a visit from the Wicked Good Vintage Racing Association who showed up with 21 race cars from yesteryear. Although the feature was run under less than perfect conditions, Tim Reynolds of Milford drove his í37 Plymouth to victory. John Rice finished second in a í37 Pontiac coupe, followed by Haggie Pratt of Dexter in a í38 Chevy, Mark Collins of Appleton in his í36 Ford coupe and Robert Hills of Searsmont in a í36 Chevy.

Before the rains re appeared and forced cancellation of the regular feature events, qualifying was completed with David Green of Hampden and David Shorey of Old Town winning the heats in the Sport-Four division. Wayne Parritt Jr. of Steuben won the Strictly Streets, Kris Watson of Hermon won in the Super Streets, Ernie Wallace of Winterport won in the pick up trucks and Glenn Curtis of Hudson took the Pro Limited qualifyer.

The regular competitors at Speedway 95 get next week-end off as the Pro All Stars Series comes to the 1/3 mile Hermon oval for itís only appearance here of the year. The Super Late Models, Outlaws, Sportsman and Modified divisions are all slated for competition. The Speedway 95 Sport-Fours will also be on the card.

When regular racing at Speedway 95 resumes on Sunday May 11, the feature races rained out this week will be made up beginning at 1:00 p.m., highlighted by the 50 lap Dysartís Pro Limited feature. A regular show will follow at the conclusion of the make up events, which will include a 50 lap CAM II Super Street event, as well as a visit from the Mid Coast mini cups.
