SEEKONK, MA – The drivers of the North East Street Stock Tour will begin the chase to become the inaugural champion, at Seekonk Speedway (MA), May 30.
Bristol, CT’s Joe Arena is prepared for a run at the championship, while adjusting to a new race car. Arena is a former racer at New London-Waterford Speedbowl, but the rules package for the North East Street Stock Tour (NESST) is a bit different than what he’s used to driving. Says Arena, “I’m not used to driving the NESST car. There is more horsepower with these cars, and we need to cure our forward bite, which we were lacking at Lee [USA Speedway].”
