The O'Reilly Auto Parts Twilight Racing Challenge again saw great dirt auto racing and surprising results. The night's racing was sponsored by Upper Valley Stove Company. First surprise of the afternoon was to see unexpected drivers in Granite State Mini Sprint rides. The 500cc feature finish tells it all: John Chaffee charged his way to third, Brent Warren to second and yes, Bryan King won the event. Bryan King, a modified driver at the Bear Ridge Speedway, had never been in a mini until Sunday afternoon. Brent Warren is a Hornet Driver at BRS and is in his rookie year in the minis. Chaffee has been a contender in the division for one year.
Granite State Mini Sprints is celebrating 30 years in racing, and with new young drivers and experienced drivers coming on board, they can plan on another 30.
The 600cc feature had the same theme; experienced drivers from other types of dirt racing dominating. Jake Williams #73, who also drives a 360 sprint, took home the third place trophy, another 360 sprint driver, Spencer Allen #22 worked his way to second, and Tobby Tatro #19, former BRS coupe driver, would win the event.
It was announced on Sunday that O'Reilly Auto Parts would be the division sponsor for the Granite State Mini Sprints in 2014. This partnership no doubt will benefit all parties.
Upper Valley Stove Co. Handed trophies in the Bond Auto Parts Pure Stocks to #77 Ryan Ovitt, #4 Dan Collins, and the winner's trophy went to #5x Ronny Bryson. Bryson had not won a feature event in 30 years. This was Bryson's third race in his comeback year.
The Enfield Garage Outlaw Mini Stocks' main event victory went to #67 Dave Durkee. Craig Smith #97 captured second, and #78 Chris Conroy took home the Upper Valley Stoves third place trophy.
The heat was on in the Peanut's Auto Super Street feature too. Derek O'Hearn #55 flamed to victory in the feature. J.P. Vaillancourt #525 had a scalding second place finish and Sam Comeau #30 had a red hot third place.
The O'Reilly Auto Parts Twilight Racing Challenge continued to heat up on Upper Valley Stoves day with the appearance of the Mike's Automotive Sportsman Modifieds.
Race fans saw a blazing race and finish. When the smoke had cleared Rick Sanville #76, in his rookie year, held the checkers. Suart Bean, Sanville's car owner, also saw his #77 mod in victory lane as Allan Hammond stood beside Sanville holding the second place trophy. Defending 2013 track champion, Jason Sanville, stood third in victory lane. These three drivers all come from families with a strong racing history.
