Fresh off a successful 2009 season that saw him win his first Modified
Racing Series event and Koszela Speed rookie of the year honors, Jacob Dore,
of Sanford, ME., will continue his winter break from college with an
appearance at this weekends, 22nd annual Northeast Motorsports Expo and
Trade Show, at the Augusta Civic Center, Augusta, ME. The show runs Friday
January 8, through Sunday, January 10.
Dore, who majors in mechanical engineering at the University of New
Hampshire, is no stranger to Maine racing fans.
Dore is a former legends car racer winning championships with
NELCAR and the TNT series. Following a stint racing his modified at the
All-Star Speedway, Epping, New Hampshire, Dore tackled the Modified Racing
Series last season and emerged as the top rookie competitor.
At Beech Ridge Speedway, in Scarboro, ME, Dore impressed the locals
with a strong run mixing it up with veteran racers David Pinkham, Buxton,
ME; Les Hinckley, Windsor Locks, CT; Dwight Jarvis, Ascutney, VT; and Chris
Pasteryak, Lisbon, CT.
He later shined at Twin State Speedway, Claremont, NH, with a
strong run, good enough for his first career win.
Dore, who will debut a new paint scheme on his familiar #05, will
be available for autographs through the weekend.
Following the Augusta appearance, the focus will shift to Frank
Maratta’s 51st annual Auto and Cycle Show, Friday, Feb 5, through Sunday
February 7, at the Connecticut Expo Center, Hartford, CT.
The all new “Motorsports Expo” will debut that weekend and will
include appearances by Waterford Speedbowl standout Jeff Pearl, veteran
modified driver Eddy Spiers, and Kenny Barry, winner of his first MRS race
last October at Lee, NH. All three drivers will display their 2010 racers
and will be available for autographs and pictures.
On February 19th and 20th, the 15th annual Racin Preview will take
place at the Portland Expo, Portland, ME. Jacob Dore will again display his
#05 modified and be available to answer questions. Any driver or race team
that would like to be a part of the special two day event is asked to
contact the series office at 1-800-924-2594.
Series representatives will be available at all shows to answer
questions about the upcoming 19 race schedule that opens March 27, 28 at
Waterford, CT. As of January 5, 41 race teams have registered for
competition in 2010.
