The Loudon Road Race Series Kicked Off Its 2018 Season

The Loudon Road Race Series Kicked Off Its 2018 Season
180 riders emerged from their winter hibernation to grip their throttles and rip around on the NHMS Road Course this past weekend.

LOUDON, N.H. – The weekend of April 28 and 29 marked the beginning of the 2018 Loudon Road Race Series at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with 180 riders emerging from their winter hibernation to grip their throttles, rip around the road course and drag their knees on the track during 26 races.

“It’s April again, it’s time to do it for the 29th season! I absolutely enjoy it. It’s fun once we get out there to ride,” said Eric Wood after winning the Formula 40 Unlimited on the number five Kawasaki ZX10R. “Some of the work beforehand gets tough sometimes, but I’m looking forward to working with the young guys especially. That’s something you can really get excited about, whenever confident young riders come along.”

aturday was a perfect day weather-wise, which brought out a nice crowd for the riders, who stepped up the competition, rode hard and gave the spectators a heart-pumping display of skill and precision.

“When you have as many laps around here as I do you kind of get a quick understanding about what kind of track you have and how quickly you can push,” said Scott Greenwood, winner of the MW Grand Prix on the number four Yamaha YZF-R6. “I have no idea what the lap times were. I was just trying to do my best to keep my head down and ride hard every single lap.”

“You definitely need to get the points early, set the tone and you never want to work from behind. So you get second the first weekend, and you’re already working uphill,” said Charles “Jesse” Sandoz, winner of the LW Grand Prix on the number 18 Ducati Monster 1100 Evo. “It’s good to come in first and start the season off right.”

Some riders came out strong for the first round of the season while others hadn’t quite worked out all the kinks yet, but recognized where their focus needs to be in order to win during round two in May.

“The confidence thing wasn’t there. I don’t think bike setup’s there yet,” reflected Christian Cronin after coming in second in the MW Grand Prix on the number 58 MV Agusta F3. “I kind of just rode around and accepted I was going to be second no matter what.”

Play Ball! Loudon Baseball Diamond is Ready for the Season After Speedway Cares Day

NHMS staff comes together for a day of community service.

LOUDON, N.H. – Dugouts and benches needed painting, bushes needed trimming, the field needed overall sprucing, and the staff of New Hampshire Motor Speedway came to the rescue with Speedway Cares Day on Wednesday, May 2.

The Loudon Youth Athletic Association’s (LYAA) Opening Day for the Loudon Youth Baseball Program was Saturday, April 28, and over 40 NHMS staff members have made sure the diamond at 55 South Village Road is ready for the rest of the season.

“We have a wonderful team here at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and it’s important to all of us to be good neighbors and give back to our home in Loudon,” said David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. “Speedway Cares Day is something I wanted to establish to bring my team together to help the community.”

It’s a well-known fact that New Hampshire winters are brutal and take a toll on recreational fields and equipment. Towns rely on volunteers to give their time to help get the fields ready for the season.

“I was delighted to get the email from New Hampshire Motor Speedway asking what they could do to help,” said Alicia Grimaldi, Loudon recreation committee member. “It’s always a task making sure the fields are ready for the kids, especially when the weather isn’t quite done with winter, but thankfully the NHMS team made it happen!”

According to the LYAA’s Facebook page, the LYAA is a volunteer membership-driven non-profit organization committed to helping the children of the Loudon, N.H. community to excel in life through the promotion of athletic competition. If you’re interested in helping out or learning more, feel free to attend one of their meetings, held on the fourth Tuesday of every month at the Maxfield Public Library at 7:00 p.m.
