NEXT STOP FOR
VALENTI MODIFIED RACING SERIES SATURDAY
of the first two races travel to northern New
Hampshire this weekend when the Valenti Modified
Racing Series returns to Speedway 51 in Groveton,
NH. Saturday, June 17.
Anthony Nocella, of Woburn, MA, the series early
point leader, headlines the list of expected
drivers. Nocella won the season opener last month at
Stafford, CT and finished third on Memorial Day
weekend at Lee, NH.
Mike Douglas Jr, of Auburn, NH, winner of the Lee
race, heads to the Groveton race facility for the
first time. The second-generation driver was pleased
to see Saturdays race on the schedule when
announced. “We missed last years race. When we saw
it listed on the schedule for this season we made it
a point to make plans.” Drivers who competed last
year were impressed with the tight, high-banked
quarter-mile speedway that has seen major upgrades
by new owner Joey Laquerre,
Grantham, New Hampshire’s Mike Willis Jr, third in
the point standings, and 14 points from the top will
make the trip looking for his first series win.

veteran Donnie Lashua, of Canaan, are all New
Hampshire drivers seeking their first win.
