The Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour kicked off the 2nd half of its 2014 season at Star Speedway in Epping, NH on Saturday with the tour hosting its highest car count ever at Star. 26 of the Twisted Tea touring mini stocks rolled into the paddock area and prepared their cars for a 50 lap feature and the first under a new $100 Bounty put on current point leader Toby Wells.

 

Emerson Cayer, Justin King, and Toby Wells all won their respective heats with great battles throughout each field exciting the crowd for the main event of the evening. Cayer drew an invert chip of 4 rows to set the field for the feature with Trombley and Helliwell set to lead the field to green. Cayer and Wells would start 11th and 12th due to NEMST rules not allowing current year winners to start within the top 10.

 

The initial green was short lived as Nick Maniatis pushed it 3 wide into turn one and was clipped and collected by Mike Viens and Justin King, King would be done for the evening following his excellent heat race performance. The field was reset and returned to a clean green, Trombley broke out to the early lead with Helliwell, Maniatis, and Larsen quickly following in tow.

 

Wells quickly moved through the field chasing his drive for 5 in a row and was able to make a bid for the lead on lap 12. Maniatis, Trombley, and Larsen were slicing and dicing behind Wells as the leaders freight train approached lap traffic. Contact between Trombley and a lapped car put the event under caution on lap 38 while collecting Maniatis and ending his night as well. Trombley returned to the track as the leader Toby Wells slowed in turn 3 without the engine running. Wells was pushed off the track and Cayer, Larsen and Helliwell were left to battle it out.

 

Cayer broke out to the early lead as Larsen had a broken transmission. Larsen began the chase for the top spot and stalked Cayer around the quarter-mile track. Larsen caught Cayer with 5 to go and got underneath him on the back stretch of lap 48. Larsen dove hard into turn 3 and pushed high allowing Cayer to slam into a crossover move to get the white flag. Larsen drove deep into turn 1 once again clashing tires with Cayer but was unable to hold on to the top spot as Cayer took home the victory, his second of the season.

 

Larsen, Helliwell, Anderson, and Viens rounded out the top 5. Cayer would close the points from 63 points behind entering the event to a mere 6 points. Anderson and Larsen also closed closer together only 12 points apart in a tight battle for Rookie of the Year honors.

 

 

The next NEMST event is the largest in the history of the tour and will be held on the 1 Mile NASCAR Oval in Loudon, NH August 3rd. The event will have a unique prestige for the production style 4 cylinders to run on the same track as NASCAR cars and is expected to bring over 60 cars to qualify. Cars from as far as Virginia, Ohio, and Alabama have called to express their interest in running the event.

 Teams from as far as Michigan have shown interest in competing on the NASCAR Superspeedway. It will be a fascinating experience for teams and drivers to prepare their vehicles to reach projected speeds of 135 MPH. NHMS Operations Director Tom Blanchette offered the series the date based on the newest safety regulations put in place by NEMST officials as well as the professionalism shown by all teams while running road course events over the past seasons.

An action filled day began early for Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour teams and competitors. NEMST competitors filtered into Legion Speedway and had a look at the brown clay surface, a surface many of them had never seen before let alone compete on it. 16 of the best mini stock drivers across New England took to the clay in their asphalt machines.

 The paddock area was vibrant after the practice session with drivers making slight adjustments to have their vehicles a little better in the heats. In the first heat Rookie of the Year sensation Justin Larsen and Toby Wells battled hard with Wells gaining the edge and taking home the win in the first heat that had 0 cautions. In the second heat Mitch Bombard broke out to the early lead but his hood flew up entering turn 3 on lap 1. Bombard continued to lead the event into lap 4 when the caution flew for the spinning car of Tim Martin. Chad Baxter, Desmond Skillings, and Louis Maher all led the heat race with Maher losing control in turn 4 of the last lap handing the win to Baxter.

 The invert drawn for feature lineup was 7 rows. This put Roger Ducharme and Nik Coates lining up on the front row. As the feature rolled out the lineup was set and the distance of 35 laps was posted. Coates punched to the early lead and Bombard battling for 2nd. Point Leaders Toby Wells and Emerson Cayer were stuck deep in the field trying to find a lane around other vehicles. Mike Viens and Justin Larsen made early forward progress and Larsen drove into the lead. Larsen led until the 14th circuit when his car lost all electrical power and slowed in turn 1 erasing his ¼ track lead. As the caution flew Wells inherited the lead from Larsen as he was pushed into the pits.

 Larsen’s crew was able to fix his faulty switch and the car rocketed out of the pit area as the field received the one-to-go signal from starter Jordan Harnish. Larsen was about 8 car lengths back from the field as they received the green flag for the final 19 laps. Wells broke out to a huge lead as fellow front runners sliced and diced the field looking to pass vehicles and then cut the gap. Cayer began to fall slightly out of the top 5 and Larsen continued his march forward. On lap 27 the caution flew for a spin in turn 4 and the field was reset once again. Larsen once again showed prowess as he powered into the 3rd position in time for the caution to fly one final time.

 The field set out for a 6 lap sprint to the finish with Larsen lining up directly behind Wells. Larsen stalked Wells into the corner as Wells ran a low tight line and Larsen ran an aggressive sliding line through the corners gaining on Wells every lap. In the end time ran out for Larsen’s impressive recovery and Wells held on for his 4th win of 2014.

 The North East Mini Stock Tour will be back in action July 19 at Star Speedway in Epping, NH for the 2nd round of the Northern Triple Crown Series that began on the NHMS Road Course back in April. For more NEMST info please visit www.northeastministocktour.com or Like us on Facebook!
