NEMST Announces Two Maine Races In 2015!

The Pine Tree State is where it all started for the North East Mini Stock Tour back in 2008 with a vision by founder Bob Guptill to have a group of the best mini stock drivers in the region traveling to the best facilities for a yearly series. Entering the tours 7th season only a handful of races have been held in Maine, Guptill’s home state, but there will be two Maine events in 2015!

“Having races in Maine has always been great to expose the best of Northern New England with the best coming out of New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Bringing the tour to Oxford in 2015 on some of the biggest weekends is just incredible. We are honored to be part of ACT’s return to Oxford and on the Legendary 250 weekend!” Said NEMST Promoter Bob Guptill. NEMST’s Maine events have always held great car counts and fierce competition dating back to the early days of the touring series. Names like Greenleaf, Trombley, Audet, Mason, and Collins have always been right on the heels of the Cayers, Wells, Baxters, and Kings.

CHARLOTTE, NC (November 13) – Entering this weekend’s 9th Annual Mason Dixon Meltdown at Southern National Motorsports Park, Hickory, NC’s Tyler Church is on the cusp of winning his first Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model championship. Church comes into Saturday afternoon’s race as the defending winner and with a 40 point lead over second year Super Late Model driver Cole Timm.

After competing in a partial schedule in 2013, Church captured his first PASS South win in the Over The Mountain 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway last September. But, it was a dominating performance in the Mason Dixon Meltdown at Southern National that not proved Church and his small family-owned team could compete with the best that short track racing has to offer.

LFR CHASSIS PRIMED FOR GROWTH IN 2015

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (November 10, 2014) – The first year for LFR Chassis has been more than expected for owner Rob Fuller and the Mooresville-based team. The company, which manufactures modified and super late model chassis, earned five wins in 2014 and multiple podium finishes in both divisions.

“This has really been a great year for this organization,” said Rob Fuller, owner of LFR Chassis. “I’m very pleased that these cars are winning right out of the gate. Burt Myers won in only his third start with his new LFR Chassis. We strive to offer our customers the best craftsmanship and performance in the industry.”

Three past champions have driven the new LFR modified chassis this year and all were very pleased with the experience.

Burt Myers, 2010 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion, was the first to secure a win for LFR Chassis.

“The performance speaks for itself,” said Myers. “This car has so much adjustability in it and the craftsmanship is there; it’s built really well. This car comes race ready. You basically bolt it together and its ready to go. You don’t have to make a lot of updates like you do with other chassis.”

Todd Szegedy, the 2003 NWMT champion, drove the No. 15 LFR Chassis in multiple NASCAR Whelen Modifed Tour races this season and secured a season-best second place finish at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

“The chassis feels well-balanced and it responds very well to adjustments,” said Szegedy. “The biggest difference I noticed is how well it responds to adjustments. Also, the car drives well on the throttle. When you pick up on the throttle it rotates without being free and turns very well off the corners. That’s important because you want a car to be able to cut and driver underneath guys without being free.”

“Every time we raced that car we were a contender to win,” continued Szegedy. “Unfortunately, we had some part failures in some races. But every time I drove that car I felt I could win in it.”

The most recent champion to pilot a LFR Chassis was Ron Silk, 2011 NWMT champion, who finished third in the North-South Shootout at Caraway Speedway last month.

“I thought the car really performed great,” said Silk. “We would have had a better run in the North-South Shootout but I got into someone early and kind of messed up the nose. But as far as the way it drove and in testing I was impressed with the way it drove and I feel the LFR team will keep making them better. This car seems to have more forward drive than other cars I’ve raced in the past and that’s certainly something you’re looking for.”

Following the solid performance on the track, the shop has been expanded to add 5,000 square feet to the facility in order to increase production. LFR Chassis is expected to complete over 40 modified and super late model cars by the end of the year, marking a solid first year for the company.

Plans for the LFR Chassis North building in Massachusetts are still moving forward. In the interim, the company has partnered with a few shops to hold inventory. In addition, a trailer has been traveling from North Carolina up to the northeast every two weeks on average to deliver cars and parts directly to LFR customers.

In 2015, Fuller plans to have four Super Late Model house cars and a few house modifieds to continue to test and improve the design and performance of the chassis.
