Special notice to competitors who are in divisions that is mandatory to have a AMB/MYLAPS transponder...The transponder technician requests that all transponders be charged and mounted during the practice sessions.  Last year we had issues with competitors not putting their transponders in for practice and then having problems with the transponder during the heats/features.  If the competitor has the transponder in and working during practice we will know if there are any issues with the transponder prior to the heats/features.  Competitors who do not follow this simple request to have a working transponder mounted in during practice will first get a warning. The second time the competitor will start in the rear of the field for the heats, the third time the competitor will start last in the feature. If after the third time a competitor has not followed the request, the competitor will not be scored for that event!  We appreciate your cooperation this will ensure that the scoring is properly done through the AMB system. THE TRANSPONDERS ARE MANDATORY FOR SPORTSMAN MODIFIEDS, SUPER STOCKS & MINI STOCKS. IF YOU NEED TO PURCHASE OR LEASE ONE GO TO MYLAPS.COM, THE SPEEDWAY DOES NOT SELL THEM.

Pennick & Norton Takes Spring Dash Checkers (By Gary Dutton) – Young Gun Mike McGoldrick Jr. won the first race of the new season Saturday, April 19, at Monadnock Speedway, while the night’s big money winner was Valenti Modified Racing Series ace Rowan Pennink, who blistered the high-banked speedplant to duplicate his victory a year earlier of the Bond Auto Parts Spring Dash 100.

Other winners among the 120 racers vying in the eight-division field Saturday were Adam Norton, Sportsman Modifieds; John Lavoie, Super Stocks; Mike Stebbins, Mini Stocks; Kyle Boniface, Lightning Stocks; Dave Greenslit, Thunder Stocks; and Derek Robbie, Pro 4 Modifieds.

Pennink fired from row one in the Spring Dash 100-lapper and would run in the top three all night long, including his final 29 trips around the high banks, but could never shake free of Justin Bonsignore, from row four in the 25-car field, and Steve Masse, from row eight, the event’s second and third-place finishers, who both took the checkers glued to Pennink’s bumper. Bonsignore would reel in the leader by lap three, with Masse charging to the front ten laps later, and while the duo would be all over Pennink for the rest of the race – with Bonsignore leading lap 70 only to watch Pennink take command again the next time around, and Masse surrendering second back to Bonsignore with the white flag in the air – the flying Pennsylvanian held the best seat in the house as the checkers waved over his second Spring Dash 100 victory in as many years.Chris Pasteryak, completed his steady night’s work in fourth, followed under the flags by Louie Mechalides; fan favorite, former track champion and speedway Valenti Series winner Dwight Jarvis; and former Monadnock regular Matt Mead, who cut his racing teeth at the fast quarter-mile.

Todd Patnode – wheeling the Dan Stebbins machine – grabbed the early lead in the Sportsman Modified 30-lapper. Adam Norton – from row four – claimed second on lap 10, then muscled past Patnode for the point two laps later, with speedway rookie Scott MacMichael roaring into third on the same restart.   The trio would run in that order for the rest of the race, avoiding a handful of crashes, as Norton posted the opening night win just ahead of Patnode. With MacMichael strong in third, defending track champion Bill Kimball finished his hard night’s work in fourth, and Brian Chapin came home a solid fifth.

Tyler Lescord and Tyler Leary hit the stripe dead even as they completed lap one of the Super Stock main, with the ominous shadow of division strongman John Lavoie riding in their shadow. Lavoie would claim second on lap three, take the lead on lap six, and then spend the rest of the race flying inches ahead of Tom Carey III, who may have had the fastest car on this night but wasn’t able to get to the front before Lavoie took charge. Lavoie and Carey pulled away from the rest of field almost at will, taking the checkers one-two, with Leary a strong third, Dave Striebel fourth, and James Thompson fifth.

Joey Rogers led the first four laps of the Mini Stock feature, then giving way to Eric Pomasko. Mike Stebbins was on a rail though, taking command on lap ten, and then outrunning defending division champ Beth Adams and hot shoe Chris McTaggart to score the opening night victory. Rookies Justin Faford and  Cameron Sontag – two recent Young Gun graduates – rounded out the top five. Pomasko’s strong run went for naught when he spun with help on lap 10, while Julia Raymond was in the top four before sudden mechanical woes ended her run on lap 21.

Mike McGoldrick Jr. began his sophomore Young Guns season with a flourish, wiring the 15-lap event to score the opening night victory. Dylan Morse grabbed the runner-up spot, with Cole Littlewood third, Matt Kimball fourth, and Michelle Leh fifth.

Dave Greenslit took the Thunder Stock lead on lap nine and pulled away to earn the win. Jared Edson was second, Jason Barden third, Marshall Usher fourth, and Paul Barnard fifth.

In the Lightning Stock main, Kyle Boniface took the top spot from Dick Houle on lap three and never looked back. Defending champ Chris Davis claimed second on lap ten, but could never get closer than ten carlengths behind Boniface, as the duo took the checkers first and second. Mitchell Bombard came in third as Dick Houle was fourth on the night, with Hillary Renaud coming home fifth.

Chubs Lausier finished second to Derek Robbie in the Pro-4 feature. Norm Wrenn III came home third, with Mark Charette wheeling the first Lite racer under the flags.

Monadnock Speedway and Town Fair Tires have partnered up to offer the Young Gun competitors a discount for the new Young Gun tire.  The speedway management has decided, with guidance from Town Fair Tire, on a tire that is very comparable to the Bridgestone Fuzions which were the original track tire when the division started and was favored by the Young Gun teams. The Sumitomo Doral 195/60 HR14 and 195/65 HR15 is the official track tire for the Young Guns and will only be the tire allowed (competitors who have old Cooper Starfires from 2013 that are still in good condition may use them up to the May 31, 2014 event).  The Sumitomo Doral tire is available at all Town Fair Tire locations at a discounted price of $65 each.  When purchasing tires, tell the associate that they are discounted under Young Guns for the discounted price.   PLEASE NOTE: THE YOUNG GUN TIRE PROGRAM WILL BE ACTIVATED ON TUESDAY (APRIL 1ST) AT ALL TOWN FAIR TIRE LOCATIONS. MONADNOCK SPEEDWAY AND TOWN FAIR TIRE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE REGARDING THE ACTIVATION PROCESS OF THIS NEW PROGRAM.

The management of Monadnock Speedway has announced that the track will be holding Wednesday practice sessions starting in May.  The fee for practice is $50 per car and $20 pit fee for each driver and crewmembers.  The hours will be from Noon - 7pm (or dusk, whichever is earlier).  This practice session is open to all competitors (including touring and competitors from other tracks). The minimum to hold a practice session will be ten teams, therefore teams will have to pre-register.
