Story by Matt Grant

Wiscasset, ME – The Amsoil NELCAR Legends Tour rolled through the gates of the friendly confines known as Wiscasset Speedway once again, to kick off the final month of racing in the 2014 season.  With thunderstorms threatening the area most of the afternoon, the track crew was determined to get all the racing in, even if it meant waiting for several hours. A field of 13 cars took to the fastest oval in Maine for 25 laps of excitement!
For the first heat, the 8 of Matt Chagnot led the field to the green, but outside pole sitter Darren Johnson in the Circle 2 quickly grabbed the top spot.  The two New Hampshire drivers pulled away from the pack, and held off the late challenges to secure the front row for the feature.  Johnson earned his first career heat win, over Chagnot and the 96 of Wyatt Alexander.
Just before heat 2 was set to take the green, the skies opened up, and rain fell on the speedway for the better part of two hours.  After things cleared up, the 84 of Matt Grant and the 44 of Andy Santerre occupied the front row.  Santerre got a good jump on the start and moved into the lead. Grant and the 38 of Mathew Bourgoine hounded Santerre for nearly all 10 laps, but couldn’t find a way around the four time NASCAR champ.  Santerre held on to win, his first in a legends car, over Grant and Bourgoine.

GSPS2Walpole, NH-    For two Granite State Pro Stock (GSPSS) drivers, a win at the inaugural NH Classic at Star Speedway would be redemption at Star Speedway. 

 

Joey Squeglia, JR has been fast at each race he’s attended all year, including races at Monadnock Speedway, Lee USA Speedway, and Star Speedway.  The Derry, NH driver started on the pole for the August 16th race at his home track, Star Speedway in Epping, NH, and led early in the race, but had to fight his way back through the field after a trip down pit road with a flat right rear tire, finishing 7th.  To win the NH Classic at his home track, where he was a champion in the Outlaw division a year ago, would be a step in the right direction, according to the pilot of the Auto Mart Trucks + Cars/PH Electric/George Cairns + Sons Chevrolet.  “We would like nothing more than to win on Star Classic night!” says Squeglia.  “Luck has not been on our side at our home track, but we are going to try and turn that around this weekend.  We need a well handling car and to be patient, with some luck sprinkled on top.”
