WISCASSET SPEEDWAY PRESS RELEASE 6/12/17
HUTTER NABS FIRST WISCASSET WIN
by Ken Minott
     Maine’s fastest oval, Wiscasset Speedway, showcased Group 2 Saturday night in front of another big crowd. Three different drivers picked up their first wins of the 2017 campaign, while another took early control of the tracks most competitive division with his 2nd victory of the year.
Prior to the start of feature races, Brent Roy of Vassalboro was honored as Four Season Synthetic May Driver of the Month. Roy had turned in 3 straight podium finishes including a feature win. He also displayed outstanding sportsmanship and character both in and out of the race car. Brent drives the #26 in the Kennebec Equipment Rental Outlaw Minis.
Midcoast Region Napa Mods were the spotlight division with a 40 lap main event. Joe Williams of Woolwich withstood a late race restart and pulled away from defending champ Mark Lucas for a convincing win; his first of the year. The race of the day was the one a straightaway behind him for second between Tom Young & Nick Reno. The two racing wheel to wheel for the final ten laps with Reno grabbing the runner-up trophy on the outside by less than a foot. Young settled for 3rd.
Other winners on the night included Nick Hinkley on the Late Model Sportsman, Shawn Kimball in the Outlaw Minis, and Joe Hutter in the Strictly Streets. The flex race was a 100 lap Enduro, won by Zach Emerson.
     In the 25 lap feature for the Kennebec Equipment Rental Outlaw Minis, Augusta’s Shawn Kimball finally shook off a month’s worth of hard luck and bad breaks to lead the feature wire to wire. The two-time champ was chased across the line by 4-time champ Rob Greenleaf of West Bath and Farmingdale’s Tim Collins. For Collins, it was his second straight podium appearance.
     The Wood Pellet Warehouse Late Model Sportsman rolled out another stacked field of 21 cars for their 35 lap feature. Wiscasset’s Nick Hinkley took sole possession of the points lead with his second straight win. Hinkley started 15th and took advantage of a couple mid-race restarts and took the lead from Ben Erskine with five laps to go en route to the victory. Brandon Bailey, also of Wiscasset worked the traffic nicely from back in the pack to pick up a career-best 2nd place finish. Coastal 200 champ Andrew McLaughlin charged up the outside lane on the final lap beating Alex Waltz to the stripe by a scant 6/1000th of a second to claim 3rd.
     Strictly Streets, sponsored by Norms Used Cars of Wiscasset, had plenty of action in their 25 lap feature. Joe Hutter of Leeds held an early lead until he was passed by Montville’s Bryan Robbins, only to get it back on a late race restart when Robbins knocked out of the lead by Zac Bowie. Hutter held tight to the bottom of the race track as he was challenged over the final five laps by point leader Mike Haynes. His hard work paid off with his first career win at Wiscasset Speedway. Haynes joined Hutter in victory lane along with Zach Emerson of Sabbatus, making his first podium appearance of the season.
     The flex race of the night was a 100 lap Enduro. 49 cars answered the opening bell and fanned out five wide thru the turns in search of the checkered flag. When all was said & done, and nearly at the end of their 1-hour time limit, Zach Emerson, who had started back in 45th, emerged with the victory. Runner-up Josh Dube of Auburn was the only other car left on the lead lap. Wiscasset flagman Ron Whitcomb turned the duties over to assistant Larry Arsenault and drove his car to a 3rd place finish, followed by Brad Clement and Johnathan Rines.
     Wiscasset Speedway returns to action Saturday, June 17th for the Fathers day weekend program featuring Group 1 divisions; Prostocks, Super Streets, Thunder 4 Minis, and 4-cylinder Pros.
