Point System Changes

On March 5, 2015,

For the 2015 season we will be changing the way points are earned in the NEMST. 

 

Heats: Winner will get 5 points, with 4, 3, 2, 1, and 1 for every other position will be given.

 

Features: LAST will earn 1 point. Every position ahead of last will earn 1 additional point per position. Example: 25 car feature, Winner will get 25 points, last will get 1. 20 car feature, Winner will get 20 points, last will get 1. 

 

Feature winner will receive 2 Bonus Points

Sunoco Hard Charger (car who improves starting position the most) will receive 2 Bonus Points. 


With the growth of the series over the recent seasons we feel this system will provide excellent point battles. This will also make race attendance over the entire season very important. 

 

The previous point system was 80 to win 75 for 2nd, and -3 per position. Heats awarded 17 points for a win, 15 for 2nd, and -1 per position.

 

Please provide feedback on the new points system.

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.

 It was a recipe for renowned success or epic disaster. Small production based 4-cylinder stock cars on a track quadruple the size of many drivers home tracks within New England. The event went off without a hitch as one caution for a stalled car on the back stretch was the only problem during the 25 lap main event. A first time winner was crowned as Justin Larsen beat out Toby Wells earning a cool $100 bounty bonus and many teams attended their first ever NEMST event. 36 cars from 7 states came to test their machines in the first running of the Magic Mile 25.

 On July 5, 2015 the Magic Mile event is back for the 2nd consecutive season and bigger than ever. The payout has been increased to $1000 to win with over $6800 being given to the 43 car starting field. In addition to the large purse increase over $3000 worth of prizes have been offered to drivers finishing in the top positions including a set of Nitro Helmet Speakers from RH2Way.com for the winner.

 Joining the NEMST for their first time on the Magic Mile will be the Pro All Stars Series super late models. The PASS tour will run a National Points event along the NEMST. PASS promoter Tom Mayberry and NEMST promoter Bob Guptill have set up this date to provide a high profile event on a day that many other tracks and series are off. “Working with the PASS tour has been great. I am excited to be able to share this day with them as their cars will rocket around the speedway. NHMS is a place everyone dreams to run at. The Super Late Models will surely have to add this date to their calendar” said NEMST promoter Bob Guptill.

 On July 4, 2015 teams for both series will be able to park, unload, and tech their cars for the Sunday event. There will be a short practice period in the afternoon along with practice, qualifying, and features on Sunday. Pit prices and a full event schedule will be released shortly for teams to prepare their machines for this legendary event.

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.

 “I am very excited to welcome Twisted Tea in for their second season with the NEMST. Twisted Tea is a great fit for the NEMST, our drivers and fans fit their brand models perfectly. During the 2014 campaign we realized some excellent brand strategies for the NEMST and its partnering companies.” Said NEMST promoter Bob Guptill.  

 In addition to partnering with the NEMST for its second consecutive year, Twisted Tea has also partnered with NEMST veteran Desmond Skillings and his #90 Acura Integra. Desmond’s car will once again feature the Twisted Tea colors and be modeled along the same lines of the Richard Petty Motorsports #9 NASCAR Ford Fusion.

 The 2015 NEMST season is fast approaching. For all NEMST information visit our website at www.northeastministocktour.com or check out our Facebook and Twitter accounts @neministocktour! We hope to see you at an event during the upcoming season!

 

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.

 Along the lines of previous years the Homecoming Event will feature an increased payout for the top 5 positions with $750 to win, and $500, $400, $300, $200 for the remaining top 5 positions. The feature event will also run 50 laps with a 30 car starting field. “Bringing the NEMST to Oxford, my home track, and being able to offer this extended purse once again is such an honor. I want the teams to enjoy OPS as much as I have!” said NEMST Promoter Bob Guptill.

 The past two Homecoming events have been won by New Hampshire’s Toby Wells during his dominant NEMST seasons, however the Maine competitors have been hot on his heels and ready to regain their state during the 2015 season. The increase in Maine events have made a lot of northern New England teams take another look at the NEMST for 2015 competition.

 The North East Mini Stock Tour continues its show season in Marlborough, MA for The Racer’s Expo on February 6 and 7. The 2015 season kicks off on Sunday April 12 at the Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH. Please visit www.northeastministocktour.com for additional schedule and event information.

 

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.

 On May 2nd with the Pro All Stars Series the NEMST will run a 50 lap feature on one of the nicest facilities in New England. “Beech Ridge is one of the hardest tracks on the equipment and drivers of the NEMST. A win at Beech Ridge ranks you in the top tier of drivers in New England. For a team to build and compete well at Beech Ridge it definitely shows the caliber of competition on the track” said promoter Bob Guptill.

 Adding Beech Ridge to the 2015 schedule will mark the third event in Maine, the home state of the North East Mini Stock Tour. In addition to two dates at Oxford Plains Speedway including one during the famed Oxford 250 weekend, 2015 will be a sure bet for pine tree state teams to increase their level of competition by adding new tour-style events.
