White Mountain Opening Weekend Double Header Avoids Rain, Features Action Aplenty

(Press release from White Mountain Motorsports Park)

Following a rainy start to the annual opening day car show festivities, the 32nd season at White Mountain Motorsports Park got off to a bang with a doubleheader weekend of excitement! Thunder in the Mountains returned in a big way on both Saturday and Sunday with ten divisions of racing action starting both the King of the Mountain track championship campaigns as well as the ACT Tri-State Flying Tiger Series and visits from the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models, Modifieds and the New England Supermodified Series (NESS) lid lifter!

It all started Saturday with a six division card of racing highlighted by the R&R Race Parts Open Street Stock Series and the start of the season for the Foley Oil & Propane Late Models. Jimmy Renfrew, Jr. nabbed the early lead in the R&R Street Stock Open 75 and found himself in a long-standing battle for the lead with former White Mountain Tiger champion Jason Woodard. The pot finally boiled over between the two on the lap 67 restart that saw Renfrew around and a steering wheel flying through the air. Woodard would take the win followed by Shane Gendron and Brandon Gray.

After pulling off the heat race and semi-feature wins, John Donahue was on a hat-trick mission to claim the HK Powersports opening night win in the Foley Oil & Propane Late Models. Starting off mired in the pack, it was Mike Jurkowski that claimed the early lead ahead of Oren Remick, Kyle Goodbout and Ben Belanger. A lap 40 mishap between Remick and Belanger put the Goodbout boy into overdrive through the final ten laps with just inches separating the finish! Mike Jurkowski would take the HK Powersports opening day win by just 0.042-seconds over Kyle Goodbout with Quinny Welch rounding out the podium.

HK Powersports Opening Night winners also included a hard fought battle between Nick Anderson and Kevin Boucher in the Ammonoosuc Asphalt Mini Late Models with Anderson coming out on top over Boucher and Matt LeBlanc. Littleton’s Donnie Baumgardner barnstormed the competition in a borrowed ride to take the Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Mini win. Piloting the Dave Driscoll-machine, Baumgardner took the checkers over McKenna Merchant and Jacob Roy. 

Andy Hill took the thrilling Wayne’s Market Dwarf Car Twin-20 lap segments in his return to the division followed by Ethan Tyrrell and Dave Gyger. The Dads 4 By Tool & Supply Kid’s Division had so many entries that officials opted to split the growing group into two 15-lap features. Walker Fitch would take the first feature win over Kiptyn Aldrich and Connor Charbonneau while newcomer Hayden Bushey won round two over Clayton Houghton and Colby Stygles.

Sunday brought a new crop of drivers to New Hampshire’s Favorite Short Track with an opening weekend PASS invasion. Starting with the PASS Modifieds, heat race winners Zach Nichols and Spencer Vaughn led the first leg of the Weston’s Automotive Triple Crown to green. It quickly became the Ryan Ripley show out front, even after repeated challenges from Ryan Hewins and Spencer Morse. Coming down to a green, white, checker finish, Ripley nabbed the win and early control of the Weston’s Auto Triple Crown standings.

Rob Summers led the early goings in the New England Supermodified Series (NESS) 50 lap season opener but relinquished to a lightning quick Dave Duggan on lap 10. While Duggan won the battle, defending champion Dan Bowles was waging war, flying by Duggan on a mid-race restart and never looking back. Dan Bowles started off his championship defense with one in the wins column followed by Duggan and Russ Wood.

After coming home from Canada early Sunday morning, D.J. Shaw led the PASS Super Late Model 150 to green that same afternoon. Austin Teras quickly ensured that his Cushman Competition machine stayed in Shaw’s review mirror as Johnny Clark muscled his way into the top three pack. While Clark attempted to nab the lead, the pack faced heavy lap traffic again and again, all three considering three-wide moves to gain position on the others. Clark would get a bumper on Shaw on lap 64 but again faced lead-threatening lap traffic and a heartbreaking blown engine under the hood of fifth place runner Brandon Varney. While Teras battled hard in for one last shot, Johnny Clark struck down his 50th career PASS Super Late Model win at the Series’ 50th appearance at White Mountain followed by Shaw and Gabe Brown on the podium.

The ACT Tri-State Flying Tiger Series brought twenty-nine machines to White Mountain on Sunday. Tripling as the Tri-State Series, White Mountain weekly series and Central Asphalt Paving Triple Crown Series opener, Sunday’s 75 lapper for the Tigers was a grand slam! Although a rough go made for a rough race, Brandon Gray resumed his 2023 dominance and powered up to take the lead early on and never looked back to take the win. Cameron Ouellette impressed in a patient drive to take second while Luke Peters drove from eighteenth to third to round out the podium.

Thunder in the Mountains returns on Saturday, May 25 with the 6th annual Spring Board 100, the launching first race of the Wall’s Ford Platinum Late Model Series! Alongside the exciting Late Model highlight includes continued track championship action for the Fisher Auto Parts Flying Tigers, Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Stock Minis, Wayne’s Market Dwarf Cars and Dads 4 By Tool & Supply Kids Division!
