Thompson, CT- Big car counts, wheel-to-wheel racing, and edge-of your-seat excitement have long been the trademarks of Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park’s (TSMP) Limited Sportsman Division. If early registrations are any indication, those characteristics will be even more prominent in 2014. With just under two months remaining before the season-opening Icebreaker, over 40 drivers have registered.
The Division’s defending titlist, Steve Kenneway, will be returning in 2014 to compete in his Greener Blast Technologies No. 55. In 2013, the Lowell, MA native enjoyed a spectacular season, providing car owners, David and Charlie Banta, with the championship they coveted for quite some time. With that goal accomplished, Kenneway says that the focus in 2014 is on race wins. “I felt we left a little bit on the table in the winning races department to sacrifice points a few times. We put so much emphasis on winning the championship last year, that now we can just go back to racing again,” the veteran driver observed. Kenneway plainly concluded, “At this point I want to win races.”
