Another exciting night at the Historic Riverside Speedway in Groveton, NH is in the books and what a show it was. Our North Country Family Restaurant kids kart division started out the day with 5 karts but a breakdown sidelined Logan Herriott for the evening. Lukee Shannon took the heat win and would finish second in the feature to Connor Brigham. Alexus Call came in third and her brother Paxton Call grabbed the fourth spot.
The Passumpsic Saving Bank Daredevils saw some growth this week as 7 drivers took the green flag. Kyleigh Gilcris got her first win of the year, Dylan Laleme second and Josh Plumley came in third.
Points leader "Nitro" Nick Gilcris grabbed his second feature win of the year making it two in a row for the Town and Country Inn Street Stock Division. Right on his bumper was Jared Plumley giving it everything he had to make a pass but just ran out of time and finished second. Trever Roy, who is second in points came in third for the final podium spot.
A well deserved out of car introduction for the DK and Sons Pure Stock division brought the crowd to their feet as the "crunch bunch" ran their 25 lap feature. Parts flew, dirt went everywhere, cars spun and when the dust settled Matt Carbone won his first feature of the year. Always ready to race with his gear in the truck, Carbone has run part time in Late Models, Street stocks and now the Pure Stocks as well. Jamie Swallow Sr. survived the bashing from his sons and came in second while Nate Swallow finished third.
The Sign Depot Limited Late Models rolled out for their 35 lap feature and saw Doug Laleme hold off a charging Aaron Smith for the win. Pete Gilcris brought home third place which would give his family three podium finish's for the night.
The final event of the evening brought out the North Country Ford Late Model Division. With under 10 laps left in the 40 laps feature, things started getting heated between the number 13 car of Luke Shannon and the number 1 car of Corey Mason. After some hard racing the two cars spun on the front stretch sending them both to the infield. On the restart it was Bryan Mason who got the win followed by Mike Bailey for second and Corey Mason in third.
