New Digs for New Series: North East Street Stock Tour Travels to Speedway 51

(Press Release from North East Street Stock Tour)

Northeast Street Stock Tour LogoThe upstart North East Street Stock Tour will head north, June 13, to the new-look Speedway 51 (NH) for the Caron Fabrication 51, presented by L & L Riverside Inn.

Speedway 51, formerly known as Riverside Speedway, is a unique ¼ mile, high-banked track, known for close finishes, and side-by-side action. The facility underwent a major overhaul during the offseason, after being purchased by Joey Laquerre. Laquerre, a long-time runner in the Late Model division at Thunder Road Speedbowl, purchased the race track in October of 2014, weeks after the passing of his grandson and racer, Joey M. Laquerre.

Following the inaugural championship event, the competitors of the North East Street Stock Tour (NESST) are chasing Chris “Moose” Douton, who picked up the victory at Seekonk Speedway, fending off Joe Arena in the final laps. Douton has proven to be a force in 2015, already picking up victories at Lee USA Speedway in the NESST exhibition event, as well as seeing Victory Lane at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park during the Icebreaker.

The track will be a major factor in the championship, as the NESST will visit the Groveton, NH raceway twice this season, with drivers having little to no experience at the ¼ mile bullring.

One driver looking to make noise at Speedway 51 is Waterford, CT racer Jim Boyle. The former Super X Car champion has been putting long hours into his automobile for the upcoming event, saying “As a rookie in Street Stocks, I feel I have to work twice as hard to try to be competitive with the all-star field that runs on the tour, and I don’t like to lose!”

Boyle has been logging laps at other race tracks near his hometown in hopes of hitting on key components of picking up speed in his Chevy Monte Carlo.

Arena, who followed Douton across the finish line at Seekonk Speedway, and long-time Street Stock veteran Geoff Rollins, will throw their names in the hat to rain on Douton’s parade, as well.

The Caron Fabrication 51, presented by L & L Riverside Inn, will take place at Speedway 51, in Groveton, NH, June 13. Post time for the event is 5:30PM, with the North East Street Stock Tour scheduled to run a 51-lap main event. For more information on the North East Street Stock Tour click here or on Facebook (N.E.
