O’Sullivan wins at White Mountain Motorsports Park!!

WALPOLE, NH.

Surviving an ominous weather forecast and previous postponement, 100 laps of fantastic Pro Stock racing went off on the high banks of White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, NH.

Two years in the making, 2017 series champion “Magic Mike” O’Sullivan of Springfield, MA pulled a rabbit out of his helmet and had the perfect day for any racer. Not only did O’Sullivan win the White Mountain Motorsports Park 100, he won his heat race, had fastest time of the day in time trials, and was top of the charts early in practice. “This series is tough to win in, so it feels really good” O’Sullivan said. “You race to win and there is nothing like seeing your crew in victory lane and racing guys like Joey Doiron to win means a lot and I had fun.”

Coming off his first win at Hudson International Speedway, Devin O’Connell of Madison, CT backed up that performance with a second place finish at White Mountain. “We started out really tight and were riding around sixth to eighth place, I got behind Jeremy Davis as we were racing with Cory Casagrande, and Davis made a move on the outside, it showed me there was grip up there” O’Connell said. “After a few restarts late in the race I really worked the outside and I think if we had another ten laps I would have had something for O’Sullivan.”

Taking the lead early on from his neighbor Ryan Green from Berwick, ME Joey Doiron fought a tight car after late race cautions and came home third at White Mountain Motorsports Park. “Looking back I feel like I should have saved a little more but, I wasn’t over driving it either.” Doiron said. In the closing laps winner Mike O’Sullivan made the move on the outside of Doiron. “Mike had the position on me on the outside and could really hold me down, I could have done something if I got into him but I had to stay off of him, I would want the same respect.”

Jeremy Davis of Tamworth, NH fought hard to finish fourth battling with second place finisher O’Connell and just ahead of points leader Cory Casagrande of Stafford Springs, CT. Casagrande will run as many races as possible but has family obligations later this season as competitor in the family #1 car brother Kyle Casagrande will be getting married in September. The White Mountain 100 went smooth and caution free until lap 74 when the yellow was thrown for debris on the front straight. The following restarts collected Sammy Gooden of Whitefield, NH and Jeremy Harclerode of Newmarket, NH.

Official Results: #08 Mike O’Sullivan, #43 Devin O’Connell, #73 Joey Doiron, #09 Jeremy Davis, #7 Cory Casagrande, #39 Nick Lascuola, #1x Todd Stone, #93 Ryan Green, #90 Craig Weinstein, #18 Mike Scorzelli, #72c Guy Caron, #05 Jacob Dore, #11 Bryon Baker, #20 Richie Brown, #51nh Jeremy Harclerode, #01 Sammy Gooden, #99 Billy Joerres

The next event will be Sunday, September 2nd at Claremont Speedway.

O’Connell Handles Hudson High Banks For First Pro Stock Victory

WALPOLE, NH.

O’Connell Handles Hudson High Banks For First Pro Stock Victory

A quick shower may have slowed the evenings schedule before heats began but, the energy at Hudson Speedway was overwhelmingly positive. New ownership from Ben Bosowski and his team have re-ignited the spark of short track racing in Hudson, NH.

In dominating fashion Devin O’Connell of Madison, CT drove the #43 into victory lane for the first time at Hudson Speedway in Hudson, NH Sunday night. The Gate City 100 was not only his first victory in a pro stock, but also his first trip around the high banks of Hudson. “It’s been a crazy ride you know, working on me, and all these guys working on the car making it better and better.” O’Connell said. Consistency is the top priority for O’Connell as the series has yet to hit the half way point. “The number one goal is to keep it in one piece and continue to finish in the top 5.”

Following O’Connell Nick Lascuola of Abington, MA also had a career best finish of second. “It helped me out starting up front by staying out of the carnage, we fell in line and paced ourselves early on because of that.” Lascuola said. Hudson Speedway claimed a few victims Sunday night as Bobby Cabral failed to make the feature, Barry Gray and Luke Hinkley also retired with significant damage.

Looking for his first victory in a pro stock, Lascuola believes he’s “Right there.” He’ll have a chance to do so Saturday, July 28th at White Mountain Motorsports Park.

Once again another young driver with his best career pro stock finish Ray Christian III of Groton, CT lands the #93ct on the third step of the podium. Early on, Christian got collected on a restart, went airborne riding upon the left side of the #00 Jimmy Renfrew Jr and went “Into John Deere country” Christian said. “We knew there were going to be some cautions so we bid our time as the race progressed, I couldn’t have done it without Crazy Horse Racing and my entire team.”

Our next event is on Saturday, July 28th at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, NH.

Official results: Devin O’Connell, Nick Lascuola, Ray Christian III, Joey Doiron, Cory Casagrande, Jacob Dore, Derek Griffith, Todd Stone, Mike O’Sullivan, Tommy O’Sullivan, Josh King, Jimmy Renfrew Jr, Mike Scorzelli, Luke Hinkley, Wayne Helliwell Jr, Bill Antonellis, Bobby Cabral, Barry Gray.
