Monadnock races are washed out

WINCHESTER, N.H. — The Northeast experienced a very dismal weekend, forcing many tracks to cancel their race program including Monadnock Speedway. The track was to hold their first inaugural race for the ACT Type Late Models along with the Sign Works Oval Track Series that featured the Granite State Legends and Bandoleros. On Sunday, the first Mudbog Mudslinger event of the season was also washed out.

The speedway management worked diligently last week to have a backup plan in case the weather was not going to take a break from the heavy rains. Through a polled response, the track has rescheduled the ACT Type Late Model event for May 27 and due to the number of divisions start time for qualifying heats will be at 5 p.m. The Sign Works Oval Track Series that featured the Granite State Legends and Bandoleros will be scheduled at a later date determined by their series director. The Mudbog Mudslinger Series has been rescheduled to this Sunday at noon.

On Saturday at Monadnock Speedway, the card will feature Twin 25s for the Sportsman Modified Division. The event will also include Super Stocks, Mini Stocks, Lightning Stocks, Thunder Stocks and Young Guns. Race time will be at 6 p.m.

Vernon's Hillary Renaud is currently leading the Lightning Stock standings with 96 points. Vernon's Solomon Brow is fourth in the Super Stock rankings while Vernon's Pat Houle is 11th in the Mini Stock division.
