the second annual SBM 125 Tour-Type Modified Open at
the Star Speedway now just over eight weeks away,
the race has taken on a new name. It will now be
known as the "Exeter Decorating SBM 125," with a
significantly increased involvement provided by
Exeter Decorating store owner Ralph Dutton for the
Saturday, June 16 event.
"The opportunity to put our name on this race seemed
like a perfect fit for us, being just over five
miles from Star Speedway," Dutton reasoned. "Our
involvement last year was a positive experience, and
we look forward to building new relationships with
area race fans in our showroom."
Located just one-quarter mile from exit 9 off Route
101 in Exeter, New Hampshire, the Exeter Decorating
Center has one of the largest independently owned
showroom's in all of New England, featuring carpet
area rugs, floor and wall tile, hardwood, window
treatments, wallpaper and paint.
