Randy Cabral, Danny Cugini Lead NEMA To Sunoco World Series At Thompson Speedway

(Press Release from Northeastern Midget Association)

Both Randy Cabral and Danny Cugini lead NEMA to this coming weekend’s World Series of Racing at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. Cabral leads Jim Chambers by 50 points in the NEMA division, and Cugini has a comfortable lead in the Lites. However, in the Lites owners Championship, Cugini leads Jim Chambers by a mere thirteen points. Cabral was the winner the last time NEMA visited TSMP in November after a heated battle with John Zych.

This year’s Thompson finale is a special one, in that it will be the second time that the Shane Hammond Memorial will be held at TSMP and the Lites division will celebrated the cancelled Jim O’Brien Memorial from Star Speedway on Sunday. The young Hammond lost his life in a NEMA midget at Thompson in 2008. Since that point, his mother, Deb Marvuglio, has been a devout supporter of the club through the Shane Hammond Memorial Foundation, and her support of the annual event, memorializing Hammond.

As always, a Thompson victory prize is the ultimate for any NEMA or NEMA Lite driver. A “separate the men from the boys” track, the 5/8 mile will see speeds in excess of 140 miles per hour when the NEMA cars hit the tracknext Saturday.

“We’re very excited to conclude a very competitive season at the Thompson Speedway Motorspors Park,” said NEMA President Tim Bertrand. “Josh (Vanada), Don Hoenig, Jonathan Hoenig and their team have put together a first class facility, staff and program. We have been very proud to be a part of their program for three events this year, and the World Series is one of everyone’s favorites in the club” Bertrand said.

The NEMA midgets will run the Saturday evening portion of the World Series of Racing program and the Lites will be a part of Sunday’s program this coming weekend.
