MONADNOCK
At Monadnock, VIP host Mariah Michalski lead VIP winners Joey Rogers Sr. and Joey Jr. around the pit area to meet the drivers and get some autographs. A ride in an official push truck was also on the agenda as well as victory lane pictures with the winners of both the NEMA and NEMA Lites features. Also presented to the Rogers, a fan gift bag filled with a NEMA fan tee shirt, a racing cap, racing decals and many more items. After the experience they said that had a “blast” and thanked Mariah and NEMA very much.


 
WISCASSET
NEMA VIP host, Mariah Michalski had the privilege of showing lucky Maine racing fan Jordan Baker, from Bingham Maine, around the NEMA pit area. Jordan, NEMA's most recent VIP winner, has been a race fan since 10 years old and was excited to be close to the action in the pits and received numerous autographs and handshakes from the drivers and crews.

Jordan road in a push truck, received a HOOSIER Tire carry off bag loaded with an official NEMA fan tee shirt, a HOOSIER cap, decals and more. Jordan also stepped up to help with the weekly "tee shirt toss" to fans, a duty he enjoyed.

The fan Meet and Greet at Wiscasset was one of the largest to date. Fans of all ages spilled onto the Wiscasset front straight and spent a good part of an hour collecting autographs and mingling with the NEMA drivers. The youngsters sat in the race cars and enjoyed candy and cookies provided by the teams.

Special thanks to Denise Chambers and Carole Stoehr - Ware for jumping in and selling the fan appreciation tee shirts on the track and in the merchandize trailer.

 
EVANS MILLS
 
VIP Fan host, Mariah Michalski, escorted a lucky young man, Garrett, and his Dad, to the Meet and Greet to get some autographs, shake some hands and sit in a few race cars. He received his own official NEMA fan tee shirt and posed with the NEMA feature winners after the race. A night he will not soon forget.

NEMA Announces
2014 Schedule
Printable PDF of NEMA &
NEMA LITES 2014 Schedule
After months of hard work and planning, the Northeastern Midget Association has finalized it's schedule for the upcoming racing season. Both ends of the thirteen race schedule will be held at the traditional venues; the kick-off at the Waterford Speedbowl March 29 - 30, and the wind-down at Thompson, CT in late October. The eight month, ten track span of events will take the winged warriors as far north as Evan Mills Speedway in Evans Mills, NY and Oxford Plains in Maine; and as far south as Seekonk, MA.

The first hot laps of 2014 will be turned at an open practice slated for March 28 at the Waterford Speedbowl, followed by two days of intense qualifying and features by both the NEMA and Lites divisions for the "2014 Blastoff" on the 29th and 30th. After a bit of a break, racing resumes at the Evans Mills Motorsports Park on May 24th in upstate New York.

What follows is the heart of the schedule as the teams will race in eight events over a span of three months starting with a newer track for NEMA in Wiscasset, ME on June 7. Monadnock Speedway in New Hampshire is next on June 21 for the "Iron Mike" Memorial, a season highlight celebrating the life of legendary car owner Mike Scrivani. The teams return to NH for a June 28 race at the Twin State Speedway in Claremont to finish out the month.

July will be especially challenging for the teams as the mid section of the month hosts three races in eight days. On July 19 NEMA will be part of the Oxford 250 super lae model weekend in Maine, a very prestigious event in the northeast. This event will offer an opportunity to claim the Marvin Rifchin Trophy, a piece wanted on all NEMA driver's mantels.

Next up, the only mid week event of the year is on July 23 in Seekonk, MA. Billed as "Open Wheel Wednesday;" the track will host the Tri-Track Open Modified Series as well as the NEMA "Boston Louie Memorial Classic." The "Louie" is special to the NEMA fraternity as the annual race is held in remembrance of "Boston" Louie Seymour, long time NEMA midget car owner.

The month closes out with a return to the Waterford Speedbowl on July 26 for NEMA's second of four visits. It will be a very special night to say the least as much loved and missed Shane Hammond will be remembered.

August starts out where July left off, back at the popular Waterford facility on the 9th, and then back north to Epping, NH and Star Speedway on the 23rd, a NEMA mainstay.

New York state's second stop on the schedule is at the famed Oswego Speedway, Oswego, NY. The Sept. 13th Saturady at the lightning fast track is the one and only race date for the month.

The final two events of the year are two day shows starting October 4-5 at Waterford, for the clubs fourth visit and ending at "The World Series of Speedway Racing" on the high banks of Thompson Speedway on October 18-19.

The NEMA Lite Division's 2014 schedule mimics the NEMA schedule save for the additions of races on May 10th at Waterford, May 31 at Star and Sept 6th back at Waterford. The Lites will not compete at Thompson.

As the days get longer, hopefully the temperatures will rise as high as the anticipation of this new season. The NEMA and Lites teams are winding up final preparations and as the first race date approaches we can only imagine how the season will go. Check back here weekly and we'll let you know!

5th Annual
Shane Hammond Memorial Race
NEMA CAUTION-FREE FEATURES PRODUCE ANOTHER FIRST TIME WINNER
The Waterford CT Speedbowl is in the Northeastern Midget Association record books as producing the most first time winners of any track on the circuit. It happened again Saturday night. An elated Juris Kupris of Williamsburg, NY raced to his very first victory in the NEMA Lites series. It only took six and a half minutes in the 27 lap flag to flag main event.

The NEMA Lites and NEMA Midgets were racing in the Fifth annual Shane Hammond Memorial Race. Hammond, a young, well liked NEMA competitor died in a racing accident at the Thompson Speedway at the beginning of the 2008 season.

It appeared from the start that the Lites feature was destined to have a first time winner as pole sitter Megan Cugini of Marshfield, MA solidly led the early going. She was passed by teen sensation Anthony “The Tornado” Payne of Fairlawn, NJ on lap 12, who also was looking for his first NEMA win. Payne is the son of NEMA and ISMA star Joey Payne.

Kupris followed Payne around Cugini on lap 11 and ran second for several laps, opting to make his bid for lead on lap 21. From there he opened a comfortable lead and cruised to the finish, beating Payne by more than two seconds.

Wednesday night’s Boston Louie Classic winner PJ Stergois of Candia, NH finished third followed by Richie Morroco of Planville, MA and early leader Megan Cugini rounding out the top 5.

Kupris, still catching his breath during the victory lane interview credited friend and teammate Christian Briggs for introducing him to the NEMA Lites. “We raced go-karts together when we were kids and he asked me if I would like to join him in the midgets,” said Kupris, “and I couldn’t refuse having fun racing with him again.”

Juris Kupris became the second first time winner in a week. Jake Smith did it at Oxford Plains, ME the Saturday before.

The NEMA main event went flag to flag in just over six minutes as well. Seth Carlson of Brimfield, MA got the jump on pole sitter Paul Scally at the start and led all 27 laps to claim his second win of the season. Carlson won at the Evans Mills NY Motorsport Park in May after winning his first ever last year at Oswego.

Carlson set a quick pace from the start, cranking out laps a tick over 13 seconds. Reigning champion John Zych of Mendon, MA ran second with similar lap times for most of the race, but couldn’t close on Carlson. Zych finally used up his right rear tire in the futile chase and was passed by point leader Avery Stoehr of Lakeville, MA with two laps to go.

Zych was nipped at the line by Todd Bertrand of Suffield, CT and settled for fourth. Randy Cabral of Kingston, MA was fifth.

Both second place finisher Stoehr and third place Bertrand said post race that they were hoping for a caution as the only way to catch Carlson. Carlson in turn said he was glad the race stayed green. “I might have had enough to beat them on a restart,” he said, “this car was excellent tonight, but I didn’t know how much of lead I had so I just kept pushing it and glad we didn’t get a yellow.”

After three events in one week, the NEMA competitors have a couple of weeks to catch their breath. Stoehr, Cabral, Bertrand and Carlson are at the top of the NEMA points and bring that battle back to Waterford on Saturday, August 9, along with the NEMA Lites for the Angelillo Memoral Race as part of the Speedbowl’s “Wings and Wheels” event.

37, is it just a number?
By Deb Marvuglio
The number 37, what does it mean to you? To me, it's not just a Midget that was transformed over the years from black to white to yellow & blue. The 37 was a dream that became a reality for my son, Shane. A young man who had an infectious smile and bright blue eyes.

Shane learned about risk and reward and much more by 15. An amazing karter whether it was dirt or asphalt, he had a handle on it. Fast forward to 15 and emergency brain and spine surgery where the risk is death and the reward life, but what kind of life was yet to be determined. Shane survived and with determination like no other fought through pain and the odds against him to get back to karting.

When the pain became to much he looked for a car that offered more suspension and protection from the grueling jarring of karting. NEMA that was the ticket, that was the open wheel racing of choice. Shane crewed with the Cabral's and that magical day they let him take out their car at Waterford, he beamed as he climbed out. There was one person missing that day, his grandmother (his biggest fan, Betty) and we looked at each other and he said, "she's here, she didn't miss it".

Those magic moments continue as his brother Anthony "the Bug" Marvuglio experienced that feeling at Waterford on more than one occasion. Bug has expressed, "Mom, he was in the car with me," referring to Shane. Waterford is a magical place for me and my boys.

Back to the 37, not just a number, a tribute to Shane's Grandfather, Jack Glockner a man that helped Shane live his dream every step of the way. Shane and Jack (Pa) worked side by side and Pa bought him that last 37 from Bob Bradbury another NEMA legend that was taken too soon.

So as you get ready for the Shane Hammond Memorial, please think about the risks, the rewards and the price; is it all worth it, are you making the right choices. Every race is a risk, life is a risk. Shane's last race, in the Jarret #4 was a reward to him, he felt respected, excited, and worthy. He knew he could do whatever it takes. Sometime our days don't go as planned and this one day in April, God had other plans; he took Shane out of his painful body and gave him eternal life..... For whosoever believeth.....shall have eternal life. (John 3:15)

Wednesday, July 23rd - Seekonk Speedway
presented by
NEMA MIDGETS THRILL BIG CROWD & TV AUDIENCE AT THE “BOSTON LOUIE” RACE
Wednesday night’s NEMA Boston Louie Memorial Classic did not disappoint any of the 5,000 fans in attendance at Seekonk, MA Speedway and turned out to be the perfect event for NEMA’s first nationally televised races in its 61 year history. Both the NEMA Midgets and the NEMA Lites provided all the action and drama a spectator or viewer could want.

The season’s largest field of midgets turned out for the series’ most prestigious race of the season. Something the late “Boston” Louie Seymour would have been proud of.

The historic event was taped for rebroadcast by MAVTV and sponsored by Burlington, MA computer software company Acquia.

The most coveted trophy of any collection was up for grabs and NEMA’s Paul Scally of Raynham, MA had time to think about where he would put it while he cruised to a near half lap lead in the 29 lap main. Scally rocketed from his front row starting spot and set a blistering pace with the fastest lap of field of 11.454 on lap 6. He was living up to his handle as “Dangerous,” looking like a sure bet for victory until the first caution flew on lap 24.

Scally now had the likes of Randy Cabral of Plymouth, Ma, Todd Bertrand of Suffield, CT and Avery Stoehr of Lakeville, MA restarting around him. Scally got the jump and held off a charging Cabral for a couple of laps, but Cabral motored on by with his fastest lap of the race on lap 27, bringing his teammate Bertrand with him. Stoehr got by Scally on the last lap. Scally wound up with a season high fourth. Seth Carlson from Brimfield, MA was fifth.

Cabral complimented Scally during the post-race interview, saying that he was rooting for him, “but knew he had to pass him if he wanted to keep his job!” Cabral, the winningest midget driver at Seekonk dedicated his win to the late Irene Vendetti, the matriarch of the track known as “The Cement Palace.”
28 NEMA Lites took the green in their 29 lap main event and when the checkered flag fell PJ Stergios of Candia, NH had notched his fourth win of the season. Young Stergios turned in the fastest and only lap under 12 seconds in the entire field on his next to last circuit. PJ credited his brother Jake and dad Bill for the help they provide in fielding an almost perfect car.

He won by two seconds over Chris Lamb of Greensboro, NC., who had a tremendous run for his first time at Seekonk. The multi-time winner and USAC Eastern HPD Midget Champion looked to spoil the NEMA regulars big night, but didn’t have enough for the hard charging Stergios.

Saturday night’s winner Jake Smith of Stroudsburg, PA had another good run finishing third, followed by Vermont dirt track ace Adam Pierson in Frank Manafort’s pavement car. Lites point leader Ryan Krachun from NJ was fifth.

NEMA moves on to the Waterford Speedbowl Saturday night for third event in a week, before having the following week off. Saturday’s event honors the late NEMA driver Shane Hammond. A big night is planned through the efforts of Shane’s mom, Deb Marvuglio and the Shane Hammond Believe Foundation.

NEMA ROLLS INTO SEEKONK FOR THE
BOSTON LOUIE SEYMOUR MEMORIAL
by Chris Romano

Eighteen years ago the Northeast Midget Association held its first Boston Louie Seymour Memorial at Seekonk Speedway, and it rapidly became a signature event for midget racing in the northeast. On July 23 the NEMA Midgets and NEMA Lites will invade Seekonk Speedway again for Open Wheel Wednesday, joining the Modifieds for a night of record breaking lap speeds and three abreast racing.

This year’s Boston Louie will be special as Ralph Sheheen and the crew of MAVTV’s SpeedSport Magazine show will be on site to film the 29 lap event for broadcast on August 14. For co-founders Mike and Bobby Seymour, the broadcast of their father’s race brings the legacy of Boston Louie Seymour full circle. For years Boston Louie towed the family’s Sprint Car to the Midwest to race with USAC’s finest, and in 1976 with Billy Casella the team won the USAC Silver Crown championship.

“From 1971 to 1980,” said Bobby, “ABC’s Wide World of Sports broadcast USAC Sprint Cars from Terre Haute, and our car won the first year, the second year, and the last year.” That exposure, said Seymour, helped propel his father to a national stage.

Asked if he thought the race would grow to the size and stature it has, Seymour responded, “In some ways, yes, and in some ways no. I never thought we’d get a TV deal. But I knew a lot of people in the Midwest were behind it because of his notoriety. You’ve got to work it all the time, and that’s what we do now. There’s a lot of history there but there are fans who weren’t even born when my father was racing. That’s when I show them the Wide World of Sports clip.”

Coming on board for corporate sponsorship this year is Acquia, A Burlington, MA commercial open source software company. Other associate sponsors also on board will help make the Boston Louie one of the best paying shows on the NEMA calendar.

In addition to NEMA regulars like Randy Cabral, Todd Bertrand, and Avery and Bethany Stoehr, the NEMA field will see former Whelen Modified Tour champions Doug Coby and red hot Bobby Santos seeking to repeat their own Boston Louie wins. Coby is the defending champion of the race and will drive for Tim Bertrand, while Santos won the race in 2002 and will drive the car normally driven by John Zych. Santos comes to Seekonk off of wins in the USAC Silver Crown Series in St. Louis, and a last lap pass at New Hampshire International in the Modifieds.

NEMA Lites will be represented by P.J. Stergios, Paul Bigelow, Anthony Nocella and rookie Anthony “The Tornado” Payne. Overall Bobby Seymour is expecting a record turnout for the event.

“Between the NEMA Midgets and the NEMA Lites,” said Seymour, we’re expecting between forty and fifty cars. Given the way things are in racing, I’d say that is pretty good.”

Doug Coby Ready For Defense Of NEMA Boston Louie Victory At Seekonk Speedway

July 10, 2014 By Shawn Courchesne - Story at racedayct.com HERE

When Doug Coby and Northeastern Midget Association team owner Tim Bertrand sat down to figure out Coby’s part-time schedule with the team this series, there was one event they knew Coby would unquestionably be running.

In 2013 Coby got his first career NEMA victory in one of the division’s biggest events, the Boston Louie Memorial at Seekonk (Mass.) Speedway.

And when the event runs on July 23 at Seekonk, Coby will be in the lineup looking to defend his win.

Coby, of Milford, will also be running the No. 20 Czarnecki Brothers Tour Type Modified in the Open Wheel Wednesday Modified feature at Seekonk that evening.

“We’ve been talking about it since last year so we made sure that was on our schedule first and foremost,” Coby said of the Boston Louie Memorial event. “I’ll be there anyway for the [Open Modified] race. It’s a good day for me to have both cars there. They’re both going to be fast. I’m excited.”

This year’s Boston Louie Memorial event is expected to be broadcast on MAVTV.

“It’s a little bigger this year because I hear it’s going to be televised,” Coby said. “That’s kind of cool. That’s awesome for them to be able to put that little TV package together. It’s obviously their most prestigious race on the schedule in terms of the history. They have a handful of big one’s but I think that’s the biggest one for them.”

Coby made his first NEMA start for Bertrand Motorsports in 2012. He made three starts for the team in 2013, finishing fifth in an event at the Waterford Speedbowl and second in another event at Seekonk. Coby, who runs full-time on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and in the SK Modified division at Stafford Motor Speedway, has made two NEMA starts this year for Bertrand Motorsports.

“It’s kind of cool to be the outsider who won [the Bosto
n Louie] last year,” Coby said. “I’d like to be the outsider who wins it again this year.”

STOEHR AND SMITH SCORE
NEMA VICTORIES AT OXFORD

The young talent of the Northeastern Midget Association were fast and in charge Saturday night at Oxford Plains Speedway. The NEMA midgets returned to the Maine oval for the first time in several years as part of the track’s historic “250 Weekend.” Eighteen year old Avery Stoehr of Lakeville, MA won the NEMA main and 22 year old Jake Smith of Stroudsburg, PA took the checkers in the Lites feature. Both drivers had a straightaway lead at one point during their romp to victory. Both received the Marvin Rifkin Trophy for winning the race named for the late owner and operator of M & H Tire, honored for his endless support of NEMA and its competitors throughout the club’s long history.

Stoehr came from his third starting spot to get around early leader Paul Scally within the first five laps. Scally was left to battle Avery’s cousin Bethany Stoehr for the second spot. It wasn’t long before Randy Cabral had sliced his way through the field from his eighth starting position and began to reel in the leaders. Cabral had been the fastest in practice turning the track at 13.4 and was again setting a blistering pace with a feature fast lap of 13.7. The caution waved at lap 11 when Scally slowed on the track with brake problems ending his promising run. This set up a side by side restart between Stoehr and Cabral, with Stoehr getting the jump at the green. Cabral gave chase, but a misfiring engine a few laps later allowed Stoehr to get away and cruise to his second victory of the season. Cabral held on for second, followed by Bethany Stoehr, Jim Chambers and Todd Bertrand rounding out the top five. Paul Scally and Jim Chambers were qualifying heat winners. Avery Stoehr’s feature win keeps the top of the point battle tight between he and Cabral heading into the next event at Seekonk on Wednesday.

Jake Smith notched his first ever NEMA Lite victory by dominating their portion of night’s action. Smith came from his third starting spot to battle double-duty driver Randy Cabral in the early stages. He was able to clear Cabral within a lap and set sail on a torrid pace, leading better than a straightaway over Cabral. Danny Cugini caught and passed Cabral for second in the late stages of the 25 lap main. Cabral held on for third, followed by Kevin Hutchins and Matt Swanson. Smith and Ryan Krachun were heat winners. In victory lane, Smith thanked his parents who make the long tow from Pennsylvania and crew for him at the NEMA Lite events.

The Oxford race was the first of three in one week for NEMA. Both divisions of midgets race in the prestigious Boston Louie Memorial Classic on Wednesday night at Seekonk and the annual Shane Hammond Memorial race at the Waterford, CT Speedbowl on Saturday night.
