Mike Parks Out As Operator Of Claremont Motorsports Park; Upcoming Sale Of Facility Possible

It was announced Friday evening that Mike Parks is out as the operator of Claremont Motorsports Park. 

In an announcement posted on the Claremont Motorsports Park Facebook page Friday evening, Parks announced that his lease to operate the track in 2023 would not be renewed. Claremont is owned by Norm Wrenn and Ben Boswoski. 

Wrenn also owns Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, N.H. and Lee USA Speedway in Lee, N.H. Bosowski owns Hudson (N.H.) Speedway. 

Bosowski is expected to purchase Lee from Wrenn. 

In a post on the New Hampshire Short Track Racing Association Facebook page (which is operated by parties involved with Wrenn and Bosowski), it was stated that Claremont ownership has received offers to purchase the property and is in negotiations to do so. The post also stated “Regardless of the outcome, Claremont will remain a racetrack and will be operating in 2023.” 

A source close to negotiations indicated that Bosowski will operate Claremont in 2023. 

Parks, who owns the Granite State Pro Stock Series, had operated Claremont since the 2020 season. 

“It’s been a hell of a ride and whole lot of fun,” Parks said in a Facebook announcement. “The chance to operate my hometown racetrack for the last three years has been nothing but amazing.”

NASCAR is expected at some point soon to announce that the Whelen Modified Tour will run at Claremont on Saturday July 29, 2023.


  1. What, no comments or insights from up north? This is a big deal isn’t it? It sure is making waves on social media.
    Claremont was the best NWMT show in my view. Good crowd and the unique track was fun to watch.
    What-a-ya-say New Hampshire. What’s the scoop up there and the current mood.

    I sure hope this isn’t the beginning of the end for Claremont. An awful long haul for me, but a really cool track to see a race at with te dogleg first turn.

    Fast Eddie, I think this means the end for Hudson

  4. I haven’t been to Hudson in a few years. Its a racy little high banked bull ring. It would be a shame to see the track close. Hudson has some issues with parking which really limits what they can do for shows. but it seems like the owner was making some much needed improvements. I know Hudson’s owner is part owner of Claremont with Wren and I thought he was expected to buy Lee from Wrenn. Which would put Hudson, Claremont and Lee under one ownership, Wrenn will still have Monadnock left and free up some cash to buy Waterford. Complete speculation on my part, but one can dream. Perhaps that will get the thread going.

  5. I thought I heard somewhere that Wrenn was expected to buy the rest of Claremont from Ben after Ben bought Lee. But who knows if that’s accurate. I know Mike wasn’t liked by everyone but he was able to bring some improvements to the track and I appreciate that. I’m excited to hear about the future.
