NEMA and Hoosier Tire
Ink Exclusive 3 Year Deal
Brockton, MA  -  NEMA President, Mike Scrivani, announced today that the Northeastern Midget Association and Hoosier Tire East have inked an exclusive, three year deal. Under the deal, NEMA will have exclusive rights in the Northeast to the current plated compounds (RR 7, 7.3, RF 5, LR, 5 and LF, 4, 5) and will be the only series in the Northeast running these particular tires.

Hoosier will also continue to be a major contributor to the NEMA point fund, and in addition have offered fixed pricing for the racer over the next three years.
“NEMA has enjoyed a long history with Hoosier. This sport is about supporting those who take care of you, and supporting each other. We feel that we have the best product in Hoosier and look forward to a long relationship with them,” said NEMA President, Mike Scrivani. “We have an exciting schedule brewing for 2015 and expect great car counts,” said Scrivani.

NEMA Releases
2020 Schedules
NEMA Midgets Schedule HERE

NEMA Lites Schedule HERE
On Saturday, December 8th, Northeastern Midget Association President, Tim Bertrand, released the club's 2020 schedules to the membership and press. Fourteen NEMA Midgets shows and seventeen Lites shows, with thirteen combined NEMA Midgets/NEMA Lites shows highlight a season that brings NEMA back to many of its familiar, historic "haunts."

"We plan to play off of the success that we had over the last couple of seasons, as a club. We had strong car counts in the 30 car range every week, with a season high of nearly 40 cars at the Boston Louie event," said club President, Bertrand. "I see us only continuing to gain momentum for 2020. We've got a number of new teams coming into the Lite series, have at least three new full time teams in the NEMA division, with 3-4 others returning for 2020," said Bertrand.

The Northeastern Midget Association will play part in nearly all of the Northeast's most prestigious races: The Thompson ICEBREAKER, The Star Classic, The Boston Louie Memorial, Seekonk's Open Wheel Wednesday, LEE's Open Wheel Opener & Oktoberfest, Waterford's 4 Cylinder Frenzy, and Thompson's World Series of Racing.

NEMA starts its season at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park's annual ICEBREAKER event, with a Lites only race. The club will visit Thompson on two other occasions, one with the Whelen Modified Tour in August, and the World Series in October.

"Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park has enjoyed its great partnership with with the Northeastern Midget Association. For the past several seasons, they have provided some of the most exciting competition at Thompson and we are delighted to welcome them back in 2020," said GM of the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, Terry Eames.

The club will return to Star Speedway with two combined shows and two Lites Only shows this season. The highlight on the schedule is a return to the Star Classic, one of the biggest open wheel races in the Country.

"NEMA did a great job for us last year at the Star Classic, and is a great addition to our race card," said Star Speedway GM & owner Bobby Webber Jr. "We are excited to have them return a number of times this year, and continue our over sixty year tradition here at Star Speedway," he said.

A big highlight on the schedule this year is two trips to Seekonk Speedway, one with the Lites only at Open Wheel Wednesday and the other, the prestigious Boston Louie Memorial, at Seekonk with the International Supermodified Association in August.

NEMA will also return to two tracks this year, one in Claremont Motorsports Park for the opening event, to accompany the Granite State Pro Stocks, and one at Hudson Speedway, where NEMA has not competed at in nearly twenty years.

Three shows at LEE USA Speedway are on the docket, after NEMA re-kindled its relationship with the speedway after the change of ownership last season. The last time NEMA visited the Speedway, Sammy Swindell took down a victory, to extend his 49 year winning streak. Swindell is slated to compete with NEMA on a handful of occasions again in 2020.

Always favorites, NEMA returns to Wiscassett, Monadnock, and will be back at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl this season after troubles kept the track opening last season.

"The Speedbowl is extremely excited to have NEMA headline our Inaugural 4 Cylinder Frenzy show, on Saturday September 12th, 2020. The NEMA midgets always provide the most exciting side by side action and down to the wire finishes! This will be the premier 4 cylinder show in the Northeast and will be one of our biggest events of 2020," said Speedbowl GM Mike Serluca.

Seitz, Cabral Score Hammond
Memorial Victories at Thompson’s
World Series of Racing;
Stoehr, Locke Are 2019 Champions
Thompson, CT  -  The Northeastern Midget Association rolled into the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park for one of New England's largest racing events of the season, the Sunoco World Series of Racing and annual Shane Hammond Memorial. Ben Seitz came out victorious after an epic nine lap side by side battle with teammate Todd Bertrand in the NEMA race, while Randy Cabral ran away and hid in the Lites portion of the event.

At the end of the day, Avery Stoehr #39 was crowned the 2019 NEMA driver's champion and Tim Bertrand # 39 the owner's champion, his eighth series owner's championship. In the Lites, youngster Ryan Locke #38 capped off a tremendous 2019 season to take down the driver's championship, with Frank Manafort #76 winning the owner's championship.

Each year, NEMA celebrates the life of the young Hammond, who lost his life in a NEMA Midget at Thompson in 2008. Since that point, his mother, Deb Marvuglio, has been a devout supporter of the club through the Shane Hammond Memorial Foundation, and her support of the annual event, memorializing Hammond. The racing action this year was no disappointment for the Hammond family, featuring side by side action in both events.

In the NEMA race, a tale of two races unfolded as it appeared that teammates Randy Cabral and Alby Ovitt would be battling for the win, when disaster struck Cabral's machine taking both out. On the green flag, Cabral rocketed from his sixth starting spot into the lead by lap three. Quickly, teammate Alby Ovitt was into second and ran down Cabral by lap seven. The two were in a heated side by side battle, when Cabral's machine lost a rear end on the front stretch, and Ovitt had nowhere to go, making contact and ending his night with a broken steering rod.

On the restart, Todd Bertrand would take the lead, with teammate Ben Seitz in second. It appeared that Bertrand would pull away, when the caution flew for Bethany Stoehr on the front stretch on lap eleven. On the restart, Seitz and Bertand drove deep into turn one, coming out even off of turn two. The two would put on a spectacular side by side battle over the remaining nine laps, with Seitz winning by a car length at the finish line. Bertrand would finish second, followed by 2019 Champion Avery Stoehr, Mike Horn, Paul Scally, Lanson Fornoro, Jeff Champagne, Danny Gamache, Bethany Stoehr, and Ovitt.

"It's great to come back and run the midgets, they are a lot of fun," said 4 time NEMA Champion, Seitz. "To return to victory lane in NEMA is great, I need to thank Tim and his whole team for letting me run their cars," he said.

In the Lites feature, Shane Hammond's brother, Anthony Marvuglio, in the Cabral 36, would blast into the lead on lap two in what would set up a Cinderella story for the Hammond and Cabral families. Marvuglio, looking strong, would lead until lap seven, when behind him, Cabral in the FMR #76 would break free of traffic and run down Marvuglio.

Cabral, Hammond's best friend, would run side by side in a great duel with Marvuglio, with Cabral coming out on top.

Once in command, Cabral would distance himself from the field, winning the feature by over a straightaway. Marvuglio would finish second in the 27 lap feature, for a Cabral/Marvuglio victory lane celebration. PJ Stergios put on a great run, coming from deep in the field to finish third, his second podium finish in a row. Jake Trainor would finish fourth, followed by Kyle Valeri, Ryan Locke, Richie Coy, Chris Vose, Jeff Champagne, and Danny Gamache.

"Our car started to skip toward the end, I wasn't even sure we would finish," said Cabral. "I think it was Shane riding with me, maybe even playing some tricks on me. Its just great to win this race for Shane and his family, and also for my car owner, Frank Manafort," said Cabral.
               
 
NEMA's 1000th Race - Star Speedway - 8/23/14
CARLSON - CABRAL - ZYCH

Recognizing Some
NEMA Milestones

The Northeastern Midget Association will open the season at Star Speedway on May 21. It will be the 1018th point-paying race in the club's 63-year history.

Passing unheralded was the club's 1,000th race at Star Speedway on August 23, 2014. Randy Cabral was the winner, besting John Zych Jr. and Seth Carlson.

New England's oldest and most enduring touring division, NEMA was formed in the late spring of 1953 at the Thompson clubhouse. Fred Meeker was the first NEMA winner at Seekonk Speedway on May 30, 1953. New England Auto Racing Hall of Famer Bill Eldridge won the next afternoon at Waterford.

The NEMA Lites open at Thompson Speedway's Icebreaker on April 9. There have been 106 races for a division that started with an exhibition run at New London-Waterford in 2008. The 100th Lites race was won by Danny Cugini at Lee on July 17 of last year.

With two victories last year, Randy Cabral is now tied with Nokie Fornoro in fourth place on NEMA's all-time win list with 47. He has 16 seasons with a least one victory tying him with Bobby Seymour on that list. They have come consecutively, equaling a NEMA standard set by National Midget Hall of Famer Dave Humphrey. Most of Cabral's wins have come in Tim Bertrand's No. 47 but it all started when an upstart Cabral captured the 2000 Boston Louie in a family car.

Star Speedway, with 103 races going back to 1968, is the leader among tracks hosting NEMA events. Randy Cabral tops active NEMA competitors with four Star wins including three of the last four. John Zych Jr. has also won at Star.

NEMA is clearly one of the most competitive open cockpit divisions in the country. Over the past six years, there have been 23 different NEMA winners and in all but one of those seasons, at least one "first-timer" appeared. Over that span John Zych Jr., Todd Bertrand, Avery Stoehr and Seth Carlson have become top contenders. Danny Cugini and Jim Chambers were first time winners in 2015. Bertrand, Stoehr and Cugini are all products of the NEMA Lites. The Lites have had 20-different winners in the past three seasons, champion Anthony Payne and Megan Cugini among the 2015 first timers. Designed with competiveness in the forefront nine years ago, the Lites are a true success story.

Nominations are now being accepted for the New England Auto Racers Hall of Fame. The nomination form and procedure are available on the New England Antique Racers' website - www.near1.org. Please disregard the posted deadlines.

Those with NEMA connections already enshrined are Gene Angelillo, Chuck Arnold, Burt Brooks, Ray Brown,Joe Csiki, Bill Eldridge, Frank Ferrara, Drew Fornoro, Dave Humphrey, Johnny Kay, Wen Kelly, Rollie Lindblad, John McCarthy, George Monsen, Al Pillion, Billy Randall, Marvin Rifchin, Mike Scrivani Sr., Louie Seymour, Hank Stevens, Ed Stone and Bentley Warren.
