Moultonboro, NH - Last Sunday’s blustery weather didn’t slow down the racers or the fans at the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club’s fourth event of the 2013 season. The fresh ¼ mile track on Lee Pond was hard and fast. Spectators ringed the track, bank parked safely behind a 3ft snow. The Club’s new double feature format, with the winner determined by the best combined finish, was well accepted by drivers and fans alike. After the 12:00 driver’s meeting, a special guest arrived on the ice.
Young Eric Adams was introduced to the drivers and made an honorary member of the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club. Eric was presented with a trophy as a winner in his battle against cancer along with an autographed goody bag and a Latchkey Cup sweatshirt. Eric’s family was given a gas card and a grocery card to help offset the extra expenses they have encountered. The donation was funded by the annual Latchkey benefit race held earlier in the season. The club now has a new member and ice racing has a new fan.
The Juniors were the first division on the ice for the day. Jackie Martel in her #32 VW Rabbit, repaired after extensive damage last week, won the first feature with Chris Taylor (8) in second place. Chris won the second feature and the overall trophy.
Mike Horsch of Moultonboro got his #2 flying and took the first modified feature followed by Rick Martel (28) also of Moultonboro. Tuftonboro’s Jake Williams drove his sprint car to the win in the second feature with Rick Martel again in second place. Rick took the overall Modified division trophy with the best combined finished of 2 seconds.
Northfield’s Tim Chase had ‘em covered with his #40 Toyota MR2 Tim again dominated the 4 Cylinder Division. Tim chalked up the 4 Cylinder overall and notched his 5th and 6th feature wins of the season.
The V8 Stock Division was last out with Moultonboro’s Matt Morrill (9) winning both features and the overall. Adam Cahoon (99) of Moultonboro took the second place trophy.
The Club’s next event is scheduled for Sunday, ice conditions permitting, on either Lee or Berry Pond starting at 12:30.
