RIPLEY DOUBLES DOWN ON COOL NIGHT AT WISCASSET
by Ken Minott

The North East Midget Association (NEMA) made its second appearance of the season at Wiscasset Speedway on Saturday night. Ames True Value NEMA Night always brings fans out to thrill at the amazing speed and quickness of the winged asphalt sprint cars. Once again, fans got what they came to see. The NEMA Lites had center stage this time with a 50 lap main event; twice the distance that they normally run. Ryan Locke of Chester, NH took an early lead an never looked back, turning in a dominant victory. He crossed the finish line nearly 2-1/2 seconds ahead of Richie Coy of Haskell, NJ and Danny Cugini of Marshfield, Ma. The Ford Focus powered cars wound around the 3/8 mile track in just over14 seconds. The high powered NEMA Midgets, the fastest asphalt sprint cars in the world, showed their stuff in a 25 lap support feature, with the track record on the line on a cool evening. Avery Stoehr of Lakeville, Ma was the class of the field, grabbing the lead on lap 2 and running away to a convincing win. He hustled his #39 Bertrand Motorsports machine around the track in near record time, turning in a 13.038-second lap for an average speed of 102 mph. He missed the track record, held by John Zych, by just 0.034 seconds. Stoehr was joined in victory lane by defending champ Randy Cabral of Kingston, Ma and record hold John Zych of Mendon, Ma.
