by Ken Minott

Loyal race fans gathered on a hot Saturday evening for Group 1 Fan Appreciation Night at Wiscasset Speedway. Drivers treated them to a prerace meet & greet autograph session on the track. Then the kids got to take their turn with bike races for kids from 3 to 12 years old. Trophies & smiles were plentiful. Fans were also treated to a visit from the Maine Cabin Masters. The stars of the DIY Network and Discovery Channel show signed autographs for fans and participated in some of the day’s activities. On the schedule was also action in all 4 weekly Group 1 divisions. The spotlight race was a 50 lapper for the ServPro of Biddeford Saco Prostocks. Other than the usual spoils of victory, the race offered the winner a provisional starting spot in the $10,000 to win SLM / Prostock Nationals at Seekonk Speedway on July 18th. Point leader Nick Hinkley didn’t take long to lay his claim to the prize. He started 6th, but took just 5 laps to charge along the outside lane and grab the lead. From there he survived several mid-race restarts and challenges from a handful of drivers Daren Ripley, Kevin Douglass and Nick Reno on his way to the victory. It was his division high 3rd checkered flag of the season. As of press time, the victory remains unofficial pending engine inspection, which is mandatory following a driver’s 3rd win. Ripley took the runner-up honors followed by Douglass. Joe Decker of Chesterville started deep in the starting field and finished 4th. Pole sitter Cody Tribbett of Richmond faded early in the race but rebounded to finish 5th. (more…)
