A Look Ahead to “Friday Night Lights” at Lee USA Speedway

LEE, NH – As the North East Street Stock Tour returns to Lee USA Speedway for “Friday Night Lights”, presented by the Gobbi Corporation, on July 31, two drivers look to the event from different ends of the spectrum.

Geoff Rollins is in mid-stride, after picking up the win in the Christmas in July event at Monadnock Speedway on July 11, and looks to continue his success at another of his home tracks, Lee USA Speedway. Rollins is currently second in points in the Late Model Sportsman at the track, and finished second in the exhibition event for the North East Street Stock Tour (NESST), back in May.

Rollins will be running his familiar orange #02 car in his return home, and is confident in the change, saying “We are piloting our own car that’s orange and has a 02, and anything orange goes faster. I have won a 50 lapper here with this car. We put this new car together in two weeks, but it doesn’t scare me at all.”

Lee USA Speedway 7/24/15 Race Report

leeusaLee USA Speedway 7/24/15 Race Report

Lee, NH – The cars and stars of the Granite State Pro Stock Series were the added attraction at Lee USA Speedway on Friday night, while the Supermodifieds had the night off, and NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Sportsman, Hobby Stock, Ironman, and Pure Stock feature events rounded out the program at “New Hampshire‘s Center of Speed“.

Three rounds of qualifying action set the field for the Seacoast 100 for the GSPSS, with one local favorite, Bobby Cabral, sidelined as a result of a hard hit during his heat race. Cabral caught a wheel from another competitor on the first lap of his heat, and drilled the wall in turn two to end his night before it even got started.

Matt Frahm of Salem, Derek Griffith of Hudson, and former Lee champion Larry Gelinas of Buxton, ME posted the heat wins, and all were strong contenders in the 100-lap main event. But none of them had anything for Jeremy Davis of Tamworth, who easily outdistanced the field to collect the win.

Davis would hold off Griffith on four different restarts, before taking off on a 60-lap green flag run, putting a full lap between himself and all but the top six drivers.
