On August 3, 2014 the North East Mini Stock Tour and its sponsors Texas Roadhouse, Twisted Tea, Froling Energy, and Weidner Services made history at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. For the first time in track history an entry level stock car division ran on the 1 mile NASCAR circuit. During the previous season the NEMST ran on a number of configurations along the NHMS Road Course and Mini-Oval within turns 1 and 2. The Magic Mile was a completely different animal. Speeds were estimated to reach an astonishing 130MPH, faster than most of these cars have ever gone before, and set one of New England’s fastest growing tours on the largest track in the region.
The North East Mini Stock Tour is proud to welcome back presenting sponsor Twisted Tea for its second year partnering with fast growing mini stock series. In 2014 the NEMST had its most successful season in its 6 year history including groundbreaking Triple Crown Championships for North and South drivers as well as the 1st annual Magic Mile event held at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Averaging 28 cars per event and over 70 cars for the season the NEMST pushes into 2015 with excellent momentum.
As the North East Mini Stock Tour rolls into Oxford Plains Speedway on June 27 for their ACT/NEMST special event the touring mini stocks will have the 3rd Annual NEMST Homecoming Race. For the past two seasons the NEMST has held their homecoming event at Wiscasset Speedway as that was the only Maine date on the schedule, however for the 2015 season the state of Maine will host 3 events in the months of May, June, and August.
The upcoming 2015 season, and 7th in NEMST history, continues to offer something for everyone in the new year. Following announcements of two dates at the historic Oxford Plains Speedway and a brand new event at the 1.7 mile Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park Road Course the Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour is returning to Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, ME. The announcement brings current drivers back to a facility that has been missed over the past 3 tour seasons.
Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park is a track rich in history along multiple facets of motorsports. In the early days cars pushed the limits along the first paved oval in the nation and later on along a road course the had been nearly forgotten until 2013. In 2013 TSMP officials announced that the road course of yesteryear would be reconstructed along the premier details that TSMP is known for.
preface: Over the past seasons many drivers have asked about interpretation of series rules. All of us at the NEMST hope that the following bulletin will clear up some questions many current and future teams may have.
Over the past few seasons many new teams have joined the North East Mini Stock Tour, mixing well with the veterans that have been with us from the early seasons. It is by far the most satisfying feeling seeing different makes and models of cars from all over an entire region competing with one another and continuing to raise the bar week after week and year after year.
Since the inception of the NEMST is has been designed and planned to be By Racers, For Racers. Many people will see numerous areas within the rule books season after season that leave many levels of interpretation up to the teams running. This is not considered cheating, or bending, or trying to ‘pull the wool’ over technical officials eyes.
Multiple teams have taken advantage of these ‘Gray Areas’ to some extent. Some teams more than others. We, the officials of the NEMST, encourage teams to take advantage of holes in the rules and areas that are less defined than others. Many series and facilities often say “If it is not IN the rules then don’t do IT”. For the most part that is not our feeling along the lines of the NEMST. We want teams to research, experiment, and ‘own’ their cars as well as their performance. By taking advantage of these gray areas teams can gain valuable tenths off of their lap times at most tracks.
Please verify with NEMST Officials by phone, text, or email that the areas being used are legal and that modifications within one sections gray areas do not make cars illegal from other sections of the rule book.
We appreciate everyone’s support through the seasons that have been finished so far as well as in the future. The NEMST is in great standing and continues its steady growth year after year due to the best teams, fans, and drivers the northeast has to offer!
The Pine Tree State is where it all started for the North East Mini Stock Tour back in 2008 with a vision by founder Bob Guptill to have a group of the best mini stock drivers in the region traveling to the best facilities for a yearly series. Entering the tours 7th season only a handful of races have been held in Maine, Guptill’s home state, but there will be two Maine events in 2015!
For the first in the Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour history the regular season closed out at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park’s World Series. Thirty-Two tour style mini stocks showed up for the Inaugural event. Two time champion Emerson Cayer entered the event 72 points behind friend and point leader Toby Wells. The closest battle within the points happened to be for the 3rd spot and Rookie of the Year. Nick Anderson and Justin Larsen were only separated by a mere 3 points.
