Claremont Motorsports Park No Longer For Sale 

The owners of Claremont Motorsports Park in Claremont, N.H. announced Wednesday that the track is no longer for sale. 

In early December, when track ownership announced that Mike Parks would not return to operate the facility in 2023, it was also announced that ownership was entertaining offers to sell the property. 

Claremont is co-owned by Norm Wrenn Jr. and Ben Bosowski. 

Wrenn also owns Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, N.H. He recently sold Lee USA Speedway in Lee, N.H. to Bosowski, who also owns Hudson (N.H.) Speedway. 

The statement released on Wednesday morning read: “Norman Wrenn and Ben Boswoski, owners of the [New Hampshire Short Track Racing Association], received multiple offers on the Claremont Motorsports Park facility. While the offers were entertained, the ultimate decision was made not to sell the facility. The goal of the NHSTRA has and always will be to provide racers a group of high-quality facilities that they can race at, all with the same rules packages and Claremont Motorsports Park is an integral part of that future of the New Hampshire Short Track Racing Association. Four Tracks. … One Rules Package.” 

It’s unclear when ownership will announced a 2023 schedule for Claremont. It has been announced that the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will run at the facility on July 29, 2023.

Parks had leased Claremont for the 2020, 2021 and 2022 racing seasons.


  1. Interesting. I wonder how much they were looking for. I wonder if they will revisit with Mike Parks on leasing the facility. Seemed like a good fit for both parties.

    I spent a few minutes looking over schedules.

    Lee’s schedule shifted from a weekly Friday track to a semi regular Saturday track. Lee is giving the pro stocks the nod as a regular division which should be interesting. There aren’t a lot of them around southern New England these days. We still have Seekonk running Pro Stocks regularly which also runs Saturdays. I wonder how route 125 neighbor Star speedway feels about the switch to Saturdays.

    Hudson has a schedule out. Some speculation that the purchase of Lee by Hudson’s owner would be the end of Hudson seems to be an overreaction. Hudson will continue to run their traditional Sunday schedule. Pro stock 8.13.

    Star has mods TT 7.22 and MRS 9.17. Doesnt look like ISMA is on the schedule for classic weekend as of the time of this post. Granite State pro stocks 5.6 and 9.15. Star is running 5 5 dollar Friday shows. No idea what divisions that includes.

    Monadnock has tour type mods whelen 5.6/7 and 9.9. JDV open tour types 6.3

    Claremont has Whelen 7.29 and JDV open tour types 9.3.

    Seekonk looks like they only have one Wednesday night show, June 28th with mods 350 supers and midgets. Gone are the full-blown supers on a Wednesday night. The PASS pro stock bay state classic has moved to a Saturday 7.29 from Wednesday. ACT 6.3 and whelen tour mods 6.10. They will end their season with the DAV 9.30 now that tri track has moved to Waterford.

    PASS SLM has only 1 race at Thompson’s Ice breaker, not currently scheduled for the World series. They are going back to NHMS 4.14/15, Local shows at Seekonk 7.29, Lee 6.10. Currently not scheduled at Star. Monadnock or Waterford. The PASS super modified series has 9 races with 2 at Thompson 6.21 and 10.7

    I looked for but haven’t seen full schedules for MRS or Granite State Pro stocks.

  2. Good post! What would also be good is if anyone cares to speculate on what all these chess moves mean in the bigger picture for New England short track racing.
