Submitted by: Alan Ward on 2016-05-11 at 17:53
With a nice field of cars ready to roll for opening night at the Legion Speedway Mother Nature had other plans as inclement weather moved in with only the Super Street Feature in the books.
Heat winners for the visiting Sprint Cars of New England were Jacob Williams and Luke Greenwood with Chris Donnelly taking the laurels in the Dash for Cash. Kevin Chaffee came out on top in the lone heat for the Peanut's Auto Sportsman Modifieds. Mike Lique and Kurt Whiting took the Checkers in the Enfield Garage Outlaw Mini Stocks with JP Vaillancourt winning the Petro Mart Super Street Heat.

The Super Street Feature found Matt Pike taking the lead from the pole, building a nice lead before the caution came out for Tim Martin and David Stearns, who tangled in turn two. Shortly after the restart JP Vaillancourt blasted into the lead on the high side before Pike rolled to a stop at the top of turn 3 with a mechanical issue. Vaillancourt kept the lead on the restart and rolled to an easy won. Tim Martin worked his way from the back to finish a solid second with Bob Crawford Jr. completing the top three.
The Outlaw Mini Stock Feature completed Nine Laps before the rains came. The remainder of their Feature will be completed on May 20th. The Sportsman Modified Main will be run this Friday May 13th and the Sprint Cars of New England Feature will be run on May 27th, the next time they visit the 1/4 mile dirt oval.
This Friday Night in addition to the Peanut's Auto Sportsman Modifieds, Petro Mart Super Streets and Enfield Garage Outlaw Mini Stocks there will be an Enduro.
The Legion Speedway goes to post every Friday night at 7:00PM and is located on Route 25 at the Wentworth/Rumney NH Town line.
