- Racing Info
After one of the snowiest, coldest, and longest winters that many of us can remember it finally appears as spring may just be upon us and our favorite season of all is here, Racing Season! Following the North East Mini Stock Tour’s most successful season in 2014 many top teams as well as new teams have been hard at work all winter long. The 2 week postponement of the Lee USA event to April 26 has helped many teams get ready for the blistering season about to take off.
Just months ago no one knew if the New London Waterford Speedbowl would see a lap of action during the 2015 season. Thanks to the hard work of all those involved racing is back at the Speedbowl! The NEMST will be attending on hand at the NLWS on Saturday June 6th with a special 50 lap feature event presented by RH2Way. RH2Way has doubled the winners share for the action packed event Speedbowl fans have come accustomed to.
"Gino has always been there when our teams needed it. People like him really make the motorsports community we all live in revolve. We are proud to have RH2Way back as a sponsor once again and in such a big way." said NEMST Promoter Bob Guptill. Along with the support at our NLWS event RH2 will also be giving out numerous products throughout the 2015 season at various events. Be sure to support RH2Way.com for all of you motorsports communication needs.

A new partnership has been created that will benefit all involved with the North East Mini Stock Tour. Environmental Engines is an up and coming company that offers ultra high performance motor oils and fluid additives for all internal combustion engines. Through their specific line of lubricants and additives NEMST teams will be able to save money at the track and getting there in their tow vehicles.
August 29, 2015 will mark history for the NEMST. Not only will it be its second date at Promoters Bob Guptill’s home track but it also marks the first time the young touring series will visit the famed Oxford 250 weekend. The 250 is the richest 1 day event in America and draws over 10,000 race fans for its weekend long festivities and camping.
The TSMP Road Course test and tune session originally scheduled for 4/25/15 has been moved to June 27, 2015. This will give teams plenty of time to make changes before they hit the twisty course for competition on September 12, 2015
Due to the snow still lingering in Southern NH the season opener has been postponed until April 26 with practice on the 25th. Please adjust your schedules to reflect the postponed date.
We will be holding a best appearing car contest following the Lee USA event. All cars attending the Lee event will be eligible. We will hold online voting on our Facebook page to determine the winner!
Get those rides is tip top shape for April 12!

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.
