Seekonk Speedway ready for 2014 Season

With the long offseason coming to a close on the local racing scene, Seekonk Speedway is ready to kick of their 69th season with a 2 day event. Saturday, May 3rd will be the Classic & Custom Car Show & Go. Starting a 9am, custom cars, trucks and motorcycles will be on display for all to see, with the Mass Cruisers on hand. At 1, the cars are invited to journey onto the 1/3 mile oval for the burn out drags. Along with the car show, the first automotive swap meet of the season will be open to the public for those looking for that certain something for their ride. There will also be a car corral for cars for sale. While all of this is going on, the track will be full of action as the stars and cars will be in full mode during their final practice session before kicking the racing season off on Sunday. All of the action on Saturday is free admission. On Sunday, the 69th racing season goes into high gear with the Sims Spring Kickoff Classic. The Valenti Auto Group Modified Racing Series will make their first of 3 appearances at the Action Track of the East with a 100 lap main event. This is their third race of the season. Defending series champion Rowan Pennink is coming off a win at Monadnock speedway in their most recent event, and will be looking for his first win at Seekonk. He will have to hold off Steve Masse, Chris Pasteryak, Todd Szegedy, Norm Wrenn, Todd Annarummo and many others in the Spring Classic.... read more

Racing 360 Season Preview with Kyle Souza

Seekonk Speedway Set for Sim’s Season Opener Finally, after a long and snowy winter the Action Track of the East is once again ready to get back into full swing. Sunday will feature the Sim’s Season Opener, which this year has an extra spice too it. The Valenti Modifed Racing Series has seen two compeitive races so far, at Waterford Speedbowl and Manadnock Speedway, but this one could be even better. For the first time in the series history, they will open the Seekonk Speedway season with a thrilling 100 lap feature event. Former winners on the tour at Seekonk include Todd Annarummo and Chris Pastryeak, both expected to compete on Sunday afternoon. The tour has grown so much over the fast few seasons and should attract Seekonk a great Opening Day crowd. The weekly divisions at Seekonk will also kick-off their season as part of the Slim’s Sunday Opener. The Pro Stocks, Late Models, Street Stocks and Seekonk Sports Trucks will all compete in qualifying heat races and feature events. The Pro Stocks, will see the afternoon’s only time trials, to set the starting lineup for their heat races. Kenny Spencer has been known to lay down the fast lap in time trials over the past couple of seasons, and he will be controlling a brand new ride this season. Defending champion David Darling, along with Freddy Astle, Ryan Vanasse, and many others will be trying to open the season with a victory as well. The Late Model and Street Stock classes have continued to put on some of the best races in New England over the past... read more

2014 Pro Stock Preview

by Kevin Boucher   In the last eight years, there have only been 2 drivers to carry the championship trophy. Fred Astle Jr won 4 consecutive, and those were bookended by a pair of titles by Dave Darling at each end. Could this be the year that Stranglehold is broken? The Pro Stocks celebrate their 35th birthday this season, and it should be as good as any we have ever had. With the consistency and adaptability that the reigning champ has shown over those eight years, it is almost impossible to bet against him. Over the eight year period, he has finished no lower than 3rd in the final standings. In my recollection, I cannot remember any driver having that kind of success over such a long period of time in the top division. Can he keep it up for another year? I can’t see how he can’t. His team has remained the same, with Gary Johnson as owner and Ronnie Pond making the as needed changes to keep the car right where Dave can drive it, which is just about anywhere on the track. There will be several challengers who are up for the fight, including the six time champion, Astle. Over the winter, a new Distance car was put together with a new Ford crate engine, which is getting more popular with some of the teams. They haven’t retired the old girl just yet, as with four titles, the McCallum chassis might just be brought out if needed. Ryan Vanasse also has a new chassis to compete with, and coming off a disappointing 2013, he and the... read more

2014 Late Model Preview

by Kevin Boucher Success can be defined as many things, but in this case, you can put SEVEN championships in 13 years as an overwhelming period of dominance. Twice, he has won three in a row. Both of those have never been done before in the 68 year history of Seekonk Speedway. What’s next for the Pawtucket native? Go for eight is what he says. Why not? Gerry and his team have been the benchmark in the LM division for over a decade now, and look to continue for some time now. 2014 will see him finally dabble in the Pro Stocks on a limited basis, but the focus will continue to be on the LM title once again. Bill Bernard debuted his new Ford at the second practice, and this might be the final piece of the puzzle to put him on top. He challenged Gerry down to the wire last season, and if not for a bad steering rack one night, he might have just been the one to keep him from #7. Dylan Estrella was also a serious contender last year, picking up the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown championship, and also challenging Gerry to the finish. A new car for this Mercure team could be just what the Dr. ordered. After starting 2013 winning two of the first four events, Jeramee Lillie’s team lost its footing, and slid back for a bit before coming on strong again at the end of the year. Now all they need to do is put it all together for the full season, and it just might be Hammer Time. Lillie’s... read more

2014 Sim’s Street Stock Preview

By Kevin Boucher When you look at the Sims Street Stock roster, you can’t just pick one driver that will be the one to beat. There are so many variables to go into winning in this championship. Timing, patience, aggressiveness, foresight, and good old lady luck. Don’t get me wrong, it does take skill and talent, but without that last part, when competing in one of the most competitive classes anywhere, skill and talent will only get you so far. Scott Bruneau used all of those last year to win the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Championship and the overall title. Coming off his first title, Scott has a brand new car in the stable and is ready for anything that comes his way. Rey Lovelace kept Scott honest last year, and almost had the title himself. This year, it will be hard to hold him back. He led the standing with only a couple of weeks left and it slipped away from him. They say you have to lose one to win one. Well…… Captain Fun will be back to have just that, fun. Craig Pianka enjoys himself at the track, and it shows with his performance. Well, mostly anyways. Coming off a 4th place finish, he is ready to find the fun at the front more often. 2012 Sims Street Stock champion Paul Lallier is ready for bear with a new attitude. Paul knows what he needs to do, and how to do it. Can he bring it all together once again this year? He also has a teammate for the first time in several years. His son... read more

2014 Sport Truck Preview

by Kevin Boucher   John Paiva is coming off his first championship, and they say the hardest thing is getting the first one. We will see if the Fall River native can continue to find himself in the right place at the right time this season and repeat. This is the one division that will see some of the most change in competition, while much of it remains. Gone is one of the toughest drivers out there, Rick Martin. Well, not entirely gone, just moved back to where many think he belongs. Both Scott and Branden Dion have both moved on as well. That’s three winning drivers from a year ago. But don’t think the fight will be any less for Paiva, and don’t think he isn’t up for the challenge. Mike Cavallaro has vowed to keep his wrist in one piece, and not hamper his chance at title number 6. Mike has been the proverbial measuring stick in the Sport Trucks since he came on the scene about a decade ago, and will continue to be one of the drivers to beat to be the best. The Dion Duo may be gone, but their trucks live on. Darryl Church purchased the machine that Scott drove to the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown championship, and he looks like he is ready to break through for a great season. Nick Uhrig showed has shown great resiliency over the past few seasons in the Sport Trucks. After coming off the Pure Stock Championship a few years ago, Nick appeared ready to show the Truckers what he can do behind the wheel. Unfortunately,... read more

Dunleavey’s adds incentive for race teams!

RIVERHEAD, NY- The Tri-Track Open Modified Series, with the help of the Connecticut based Dunleavy’s Truck and Trailer Repair and Doug Dunleavy have just finalized a deal to help encourage teams from afar to compete in the biggest Modified Open events of the year. For each event, beginning with the May 11, “Bullring Bash Powered by Sunoco” at NH’s Lee USA Speedway, the three race teams traveling the furthest distance to race will share a total of $1,000 regardless of their results on raceday. “I asked Jim Schaefer, who has worked so hard to make these events a success how I can help, Dunleavy said. “He suggested that we help out the teams traveling the furthest. We don’t want teams to get discouraged by travel expenses, because these three races are going to be worth the trip.” The car being hauled the most miles- not the driver- as determined by Google Maps, will be paid $500 by Dunleavy’s. The second furthest traveled car will be worth $300, and the third longest distance will pay $200 on top of the guaranteed purse money available to every team who attempts to qualify for the May 11 race at Lee. This bonus will also apply to the other two Tri-Track events. The fifth running of the SBM 125 at NH’s Star Speedway on Saturday, June 14 which already has a guaranteed purse of more than $41,000 and growing. The July 23 Seekonk 100, on “Open Wheel Wednesday” will close out the three race spectacular, paying out an additional $10,000 point fund, sponsored by Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists of Quincy, Mass.
