The Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour presented by Twisted Tea took to the track for the 2014 season opener Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH. The race on Saturday kicked off the sixth season for the NEMST and the first with Twisted Tea on board as a full season marketing partner.

 Twenty-Five cars pulled into the pit area early Saturday morning to try the out the 1.6 mile congifuration of the NHMS Road Course. In the first practice sessions Nick Maniatis posted the fast time while still dialing in additional improvements to his Nissan Sentra. In the final qualifying road of practice Emerson Cayer sat atop the leader board with a low 1:24 second lap time winning himself a pair of RH2Way NITRO Helmet Speakers.

 Once the final lineup was set and the field rolled onto the track the feature event started behind the Texas Roadhouse, Twisted Tea NEMST Pace Truck. Cayer rolled to a quick lead over the 63 of Maniatis and 2 of Wells as the laps started to click down. The field quickly spread out and the chase began to track down the 2 time champion Cayer. Tough battles were scattered amongst the field as the race approached the halfway point.

 With 2 laps to go Wells had surpassed Maniatis and tracked down the Mustang of Cayer. Cayer had lost his brakes with 5 laps remaining and had to alter his line and had adverse effects on laps times. Exiting turn 3 Wells overtook Cayer only to lose the lead by overdriving turn 4 and sliding off track. Cayer paced to the win as Wells recovered from his fault and held onto second place. Maniatis held third with Larsen and Labrecque rounding out the top 5.

 The North East Mini Stock Tour heads to Stafford Motor Speedway for the NAPA Auto Parts Spring Sizzler to kick off the Thirty Racewear Connecticut Triple Crown which will be held on all three Connecticut speedways.

Although it has taken longer than in previous years the 2014 NEMST schedule has been released. News for the 2014 season began to surface in December with announcements of a new national sponsor in the name of Twisted Tea Hard Iced Tea. “Twisted Tea will join alongside Texas Roadhouse in helping us market our series to tons of new prospective fans while in return we will drive new customers to their great products” said NEMST founder Bob Guptill.

 Other news that has been previously released includes the NEMST’s first foray onto an alternate racing surface with Legion Speedway hosting the first annual NEMST Invade the Clay on June 22. As the buzz was winding down from the dirt event the NEMST made another large announcement, the Connecticut Triple Crown will give competitors the chance to run at 3 very diverse tracks in a close proximity of each other for a separate championship. The April 26, May 31, and October 18 events at all three Connecticut ovals will introduce many new teams that have previously been unable to contend for an NEMST Championship due to other commitments

 Alongside announcing the Triple Crown events on Overdrive Radio the NEMST also announced its largest event to date, a 25 lap main event on The Magic Mile, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, in Loudon, NH. “Response was huge following the announcement for NHMS. We have had drivers interested from 8 states and numerous divisions inquire about rides available for event. None of this would be possible without the strong support from our sponsors, teams, and fans at NHMS over the past two seasons.” said Bob Guptill.

 To cap off 2014 schedule news the NEMST will make its first visit to the fast ½ mile Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Vermont. The Devil’s Bowl event will also cap off the Northern Triple Crown that is made up along with Star Speedway and the NHMS Road Course event. The $750 to win event at Wiscasset will also return on August 23 with Tire King from Skowhegan, ME being a presenting sponsor for the second season in a row. After a successful event last fall at Riverside Speedway, Swallow & Sons concrete has also stepped on board to produce a $1000 to win event for the 2014 season held on June 14.
