Northeastern Midget Assocation Releases Preliminary 2015 Schedule



(Press Release From Northeastern Midget Association)

NEMA LogoEstablished haunts make up the 2015 Northeastern Midget Association schedule, including a return to White Mountain Motorsports Park after an absence of many years and the season opener at Evans Mills Motorsports Park on May 23rd.

As NEMA President Russ Stoehr puts the finishing touches on the final schedule, there are 12 races currently on the NEMA agenda while the NEMA Lites will make 12 stops in what will be the club’s 63rd consecutive season, making it New England’s oldest sanctioning body. There is a possibility additional races will be added to one or both schedules at a later date.

Randy Cabral and owner Tim Bertrand will begin defense of their NEMA championships and the Lites will begin their eighth season at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, as they present The ICEBREAKER on April 11th and 12th. Scott Bigelow will begin defense of his Lites owner’s crown, and there will be a new Lites driver’s champion this year as Ryan Krachun will not be returning to the series in 2015.

Monadnock returns to the schedule hosting both NEMA and the Lites for the Iron Mike Scrivani Race on June 20. The club will honor the 32nd anniversary of the passing of the legendary car owner on the speedy high-banked quarter mile.

The full midgets and the Lites will share the billing at the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (TSMP) Sunoco World Series of Racing for the first time ever in October, and NEMA will host the Angelillo Memorial at TSMP on August 12th in conjunction with the Whelen Modified Tour. Both divisions will return to New York State’s Oswego Speedway King of Wings program as well on July 11th.

Two other special events — the Marvin Rifchin Trophy Race at LEE USA Speedway on July 17th and the Shane Hammond Memorial at Monadnock on September 5th will also include the Lites.

NEMA will also return with great fanfare in a televised event on MAV TV to Seekonk’s Open Wheel Wednesday (July 1) and Waterford’s Wings & Wheels (pending ownership issues are solved), two traditional stops.

NEMA looks forward to stops at Wiscasset Speedway on June 13th after a very successful event last season and Twin State Speedway in Claremont, NH.

More information can be found on NEMA’s website and on the Club’s Facebook Group – Northeast Midget Association.

  1. Shawn, does this mean the Speedbowl will definitely be opening in 2015 as long as Pizzaman is paid off and Bemer closes the sale? It kind of sounds that way in the article.

  2. Larry,
    I think, as of now, Mr. Bemer’s plans are to open this year as long as the hurdles currently in place can be cleared. I don’t think he has given up on having racing in 2015.
