Triple Crown Entries Pouring in for White Mountain & Thunder Road
Triple Crown Event Highlights White Mountain Season Opener on May 8
N. Woodstock, NH & Barre, VT — The Flying Tigers are about to take center stage for the first of half a dozen times in what’s shaping up as a tremendous 2021 for the class. Entries have been pouring in for both the Myers Container Service Triple Crown Series at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road and the J.P. Sicard Triple Crown Series at North Woodstock, NH’s White Mountain Motorsports Park as the racers of “North America’s Best Support Division” get ready for their time in the sun.
The White Mountain Motorsports Park season opener this Saturday, May 8 is also the first round in the J.P. Sicard Triple Crown. On Sunday, May 30, the Myers Triple Crown gets underway as part of the 58th Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic. Racers such as Jason Woodard, Jaden Perry, Joel Hodgdon, Colin Cornell, Russell Clark, and Brandon Gray will do battle in long-distance races that are never short on thrills.
“It’s just so competitive,” East Burke, VT’s Colin Cornell, a Triple Crown winner at both Thunder Road and White Mountain, said. “The plus-minus qualifying is a lot of fun for me, because it gives me that much more motivation to qualify well and pass more cars. Other than that, I love having more laps, and it’s very competitive as result — you get the best of the best.”
“I like that it’s at both tracks,” Cornell added. “White Mountain was my home track where I started out racing in the Kids Trucks. Then I brought (the team) over to Thunder Road, but I can still go back to White Mountain for these Triple Crown shows.”

Cahoon Earns “King of the Mountain” Title as Laflamme Wins Barnburner
N. Woodstock, NH — St. Johnsbury, VT’s Stacy Cahoon showed he’s truly the ageless wonder of N. Woodstock’s White Mountain Motorsports Park by capturing the “King of the Mountain” title at WMMP Championship Night presented by C&S NAPA Auto Parts and Sanel NAPA on Saturday, September 26. The 62-year-old Cahoon sewed up his sixth Foley Oil & Propane Late Model crown with a fourth-place finish as youngster Christian Laflamme edged Mike “Beetle” Bailey for the victory.
Cahoon entered the 50-lap Late Model season finale with a three-point edge over Groveton’s Quinny Welch, who had won the previous five titles. The veteran started ninth and slowly picked his way through the field while Welch struggled to find the handle on his machine.
At the front, the event was a barnburner. Whitefield’s Laflamme grabbed the top spot at the initial green flag from polesitter Jon Savage. South Barre, VT’s Bailey quickly got the second spot and went to Laflamme’s inside. But while Bailey appeared to have the faster car, Laflamme held strong on the preferred high-side.

West Swanzey, NH’s Kirk Alexander, the winner of the last MRS event at the track, grabbed the early lead off the outside pole. Alexander easily paced the field for the first half of the event while Williams and Bellingham, MA’s Woody Pitkat worked their way through the field.
