   LOOKING BACK A BIT: 11/17/17 with Phil Smith
Twenty five years ago, in 1992, NASCAR’s Winston Cup division saw the end of one era and the beginning of another. Richard Petty drove his last race at Atlanta and officially retired from driving. Rick Wilson was named as his replacement. It was also at Atlanta that Jeff Gordon made his Winston Cup debut.
Fifteen years ago in 2002, The Busch North Series got some good news at their awards banquet when NASCAR Touring Series Director Chris Boals announced that the successful television package with the Speed Channel had been renewed, with expanded national television coverage for the BNS in 2003 and beyond. This was a definite shot in the arm for competitors....Full Story
   LFR AND CHASE DOWLING RUNNING FOR NWMT CHAMPIONSHIP
After running select races together in 2017, NASCAR driver Chase Dowling and team owner Rob Fuller have announced that they will partner to run for a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) championship in 2018. “This is something Chase and I have discussed throughout the season,” said Fuller, President of LFR. “With the success we had this season, it seemed like a good decision for both our sponsors and Chase to go after the championship.” In just nine NWMT races in 2017, Dowling earned his first career pole, led 21 laps and earned a career-best five Top-5 finishes in one season. It was one of his most productive seasons to date. “After our accomplishments we had in 2017, I can’t wait to run a full season with Rob and the LFR car,” said Dowling. “I feel..."....Full Story

Speaking of the Speedbowl, congratulations to Kyle Gero on his 2017 X-Car championship. Kyle is the son of Kim and Mike Gero and the grandson of the late George “Moose” Hewitt. “Our goal was to go out and race every single race like it was a must win,” Gero said. “We worked so hard week in and week out It was non-stop work. A lot of people didn’t put in the effort during the week in the shop that we did. My dad always says if you arrive at the track and have to work on your car, you’ve screwed up. You have to be ready when you get there.” Gero obviously was ready. He captured seven wins in 11 starts to capture the 2017 X-Car championship by 23 points over Wayne Shifflett. In 2018, Gero plans on moving up to the Limited Sportsman division at Thompson Speedway....Full Story

Sixty five years ago in 1952 Dick Beauregard was declared Sportsmen Champion at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl after driving several different cars to the driver points title. The night Beauregard was honored at the track as Champion he received a trophy, a television set, a watch and a cake in front of the Speedbowl crowd.

Closing out their Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) season, teams headed to Seekonk Speedway for the ‘Haunted Hundred’.

   A THORN by Rev. Don Rivers
Perfection is a noble goal. The fact is we are not perfect. Each one of us has imperfections, idiosyncrasies that identify us. Things we struggle with and against. They exist to remind us that we are not there yet. It’s okay to acknowledge the things we still need to work on. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. What we see isn’t always what we get. It is also true that what we think is happening and the reality of the story are sometimes very different. I point to the ugly side of social media, a place where things are said, accusations are leveled, conclusions are drawn and opinions are made. I am not sure what the motivation is, but I am sure it is not to help move things in a positive direction. Racing is full of passion, full of characters....Full Story

Seventy years ago in 1947, racing history was made in Rhode Island. Noted writer Pete Zanardi tells it best: Lonsdale Arena, a relatively short-lived high-banked third-mile oval just outside Providence, Rhode Island, hosted one of the of the most important events in stock-car racing history on Oct. 26, 1947. The late Bill Tuthill, the man who organized it, believed “it was the most significant stock-car race ever run.” The race, Tuthill said some 35 years later, “opened the way into the sport for everybody, and without it a lot of tracks that were built for midgets would have gone out of business.” Tuthill was a “midget guy,” part of the huge success the sport enjoyed. Still, he saw signs of trouble ahead. “Big money,” was taking over. He decided to see if stock cars....Full Story
 

In Loving Memory Of Howie

   HOWARD "HOWIE" ARTHUR HODGE prepared by Polly Reid
Saturday afternoon on January 28, 2017, Howard ‘Howie’ Arthur Hodge passed away at the St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT. Surrounded by family at the time of his passing, Howard was 77 years old.
Born on August 31, 1939 at the Hartford Hospital, Howard was the second of three children to Dorothy (Hoadley) and Leon Hodge.
His first few years were spent in Glastonbury, CT before the Hodge family moved to East Hartford where Howard went to school graduating from the East Hartford High School in 1957.
Growing up, Howard had a paper route for ‘quite a few years’. The pile of papers would be left on the front lawn and Howard would be responsible for folding them, putting them in the big cloth bag then ride around the neighborhood delivering the Hartford Times. His sister Lois fondly remembers his bicycle that ‘he fixed up until it was like a motorcycle’ complete with a windshield, skirts....Full Story
