September 25, 2010; I just wanted to start out this report by thanking owner John Diotte for the great racing surface tonight. Speaking with him after the races were over, I learned that he and his crew had spent a lot of time with preparing the track and their hard work showed. The track was smooth and had lots of grip and no dust. Great job.

†††† The features started out with the Senior Slingshot class taking the track and it was Steven VanValkenburg cruising to the win for his fourth win this season and second in a row. In the Junior Slingshot class , Hamlin Speedway Jr. Slingshot points champion took the win over Kevin Predmore,Jr. In the Lights class , it was Dylan Potter picking up his first win this season and in the Junior Clone class, Jessica Mattera continues to run well picking up her twelfth win. Tighe Sherlock wins in Junior Rookie and Robert Mattera picks up the win in Rookie Champ. In the Kid Kart class TJ MacChurch turned some fast laps as he wins again. In the Junior Sportsman Champ class, it was a good battle between Paulie Tigur,Jr. and newcomer Gary Webber with Paulie taking the win. Good race.

†††† In the Junior Stock class, it was a very fast performance by Danny Hoeffner as he returns to his winning ways. He picked up his 11th win this season and second in a row. We know he can get on a roll as he had done earlier this season. In Junior 2, it was a good battle between Sarah Hoeffner and Colin Belanger with Sarah taking the checkered flags for her 7th win this season and third in a row. Great job by Hoeffner Motorsports tonight.

†††† In the Senior Stock class, it was Kevin Morgan taking the win with me right on his back bumper. Just couldnít get by him. In the Senior Rookie class, it was David Thatcher,Jr. picking up his first win and we had an Animal class running with Vito Iannarella,Sr. getting the win over his son Vito,Jr. We also had the KT100 class running tonight with Zachary Mead taking the win over Joe Mead.

†††† In the biggest class of the night with seventeen entered, points leader Roger Belanger had the field covered until a mid-race caution bunched up the field. It was Roger Belanger andalways fast Randy McCullough pulling away from the field when they restarted, and a close race between those two, until Randy McCullough took the lead and crossed the finish line for the win. He picked up his 4th win this season and second in a row. Very good race. Congratulations to all the winners and great job driving by all the racers.
