It’s now three weeks, three winners in Rodfather-sponsored NASCAR Whelen All American Series Supermodifieds at Lee USA Speedway, as Kingston veteran Moe Lattime scored his first win of the season in the 30-lap main event on Friday night.
A single caution flag slowed the pace when the previous week’s winner, John Burke of Auburn had a tire go down and spun on the backstretch on the first lap, but it was all Lattime from there.
After starting the race inside the front row, Moe moved out to the lead when racing resumed, and he led every lap on the way to the winner‘s circle, with a comfortable half-second margin of victory over eventual runner-up Mike Keddy of Raymond.

Winchester, NH: The New England Pro Four Modifieds and the open ACT style late model special joined the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series action this past Saturday night in front of a large crowd; after a lot of recent rain Mother Nature greeted race fans and teams with a beautiful day for racing, and the large crowd wasn’t disappointed.
The Young Guns would take to the track to get the racing action started. After taking a week off Cale Skillings found his #95 starting on the pole. Cale would be “glad to be back (racing)” as he would lead every lap on his way to his third victory of the season. But the racing action heated up behind Cale, as there was a hard battle for 2nd place between the 12 of Chris Sontag and the 99 of Isabella Minchella. Sontag would prevail and finish 2nd. Minchella would have to settle for a 3rd place finish.
New England Short Track Showdown Set For July 1st
WALPOLE, N.H. – With just under one month remaining before the first annual New England Short Track Showdown at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Granite State Pro Stock Series drivers are starting to prepare themselves for action on the “Magic Mile.”
The one-mile, flat oval will require some different parts inside the cars and also will require a different setup under the hood in order to have a chance at winning. Although the inaugural Seekonk 100 is between now and the NHMS event on June 24, teams are already thinking ahead in order to try to get a slight advantage over the rest of the field.
