INEX Legend Cars to join Fast Fridays at Seekonk Speedway, presented by Nick’s Pit Stop.On Jan 4, 2012
Seekonk Speedway is proud to announce that the US Legend cars sanctioned by INEX , Presented by Nick’s Pit Stop, will be an addition to the Fast Friday Line up for the 2012 Race Season. The US Legend Cars have just celebrated their 20th anniversary, and will become part of the rich history of the oldest continuous family run speedway in the country.
While the Legend cars have competed several times over the past 20 years at Seekonk, this will be the first time that they have been a regular part of the program. The NELCAR Legends will run their first race of the season on Opening Day, May 6th, joining the Pro Stocks, Late Models, Street Stocks and Sport Trucks, as we kick off our 67th season of competition at the Southeastern MA oval. Then, the Seekonk Legends series (SLS) will join the Fast Friday series on their opener on June 1st.
“The addition of the Legend Cars, presented by Nick’s Pit Stop is a perfect fit for our Fast Friday series” stated race director Kevin Boucher. “We have seen several competitors move from our Seekonk Youth Racing Association into the Legend series over the past few seasons.” Those competitors include former 600 and 750 Champion Jake Spillers, who competes out of NC right now, 2010 600 title holder Nick Lascoula, and former standout Nick Ladyga. The Legend cars have become a great stepping stone for many on their way to the top of the racing ladder. Several Sprint Cup competitors have come out of Legend Car racing, including Kurt and Kyle Bush.
The Seekonk Legend series, presented by Nick’s Pit Stop will compete for championships on a few levels. There will be three groups competing each week, racing for the same race win. The Pro, Masters, and Semi-Pro will compete together for the race win, but will be awarded their own class points through INEX. With the cars competing within a strict set of guidelines, all of the competitors will be able to compete for the wins. The cars are built and titled through 600 Racing and INEX, to ensure an even level of competition.
Nick’s Pit Stop is a full service automotive center, located at 1030 Bedford Street in Abington, MA. Keith Lascoula has been a part of racing at Seekonk for the past several years, where his son Keith has been a SYRA championship contender for the past 3 season, picking up the 600 class Championship in 2010, and contending for the 750 title in 2011, finishing in second place. They will also be the official INEX parts supplier for Seekonk Speedway, in addition to presenting the weekly series.
