Bobby Santos III
Wins the ICEBREAKER
in the Seymour #1
Franklin, MA's Bobby Santos III kicked off his Icebreaker weekend with a victory in the 25-lap NEMA LITES Midgets feature. Santos started seventh in the Matt and Bob Seymour-owned #1, and after a slow start, began him march to the front. He inherited the second spot on lap 13 when Dan Cugini's Midget shut down, then caught leader Jim Santa Maria with eight laps to go.

One lap later, Santos drove beneath Santa Maria on the front stretch and cleared him entering turn 1. It was no contest from there as Santos sailed to the victory.

Santa Maria came in second followed by Jake Trainor. Kyle Valeri, Randy Cabral, Richie Coy, Christopher Vose, Tiana Kibbe, Dennis O'Brien, and Cugini fourth through 10th.

Bertrand Motorsports Partners
with Nathan Byrd/BYRD Racing
for Select 2021 NEMA Events
Nathan Byrd has been selected to drive for Tim Bertrand/Bertrand Motorsports at select events on the 2021 Northeastern Midget Association Schedule. The 21 year old Byrd has a busy 2021 racing card, slated to compete in 65+ events throughout the season.

"We are excited to have Nathan and his family join the Bertrand Motorsports operation in 2021," said team owner, Tim Bertrand. "The Byrd family's association with open wheel racing, and midgets in particular speaks for itself. The family's association with names such as James Davison, Chris Windom, Rich Vogler, Bryan Clauson and Stan Fox, just to name a few, is something we are very proud to help them carry on," said Bertrand.

Nathan started his racing career in karts in 2018, moving to full size in 2020 to contest the Lucas Oil Formula Car Racing Series. His first year in cars also saw him expand his schedule to include the Mel Kenyon Midget Series, Radical Focus Midget Series, and his national Midget debut in the "Night Before the 500" on The Oval at Lucas Raceway in Indianapolis. Nathan has secured two track championships in karting, scored a podium finish in the rain in the Lucas Oil Formula Car Series, and notched a third-place finish in the 2020 Radical Focus Midget Series championship standings.

"I am absolutely stoked that Byrd Racing is partnering with Bertrand Motorsports to go NEMA racing in 2021. I can't wait to be part of a series with such a robust history among absolute legends of the craft. The cars themselves look incredibly fun and challenging to drive and I can't wait to get one up to speed. I'm looking forward to a successful year and to glorifying God while on the journey!," said Nathan Byrd.

Nathan has been confirmed to run the following schedule:

May 15th - LEE USA Speedway

July 21st - Waterford Speedbowl

August 21st - Wiscassett Speedway

NEMA's 25th Anniversary
Boston Louie Memorial

Returns to Seekonk in 2021
11/29/20 -- The Northeastern Midget Association has announced today that the annual Boston Louie Memorial will return to Seekonk Speedway on Wednesday, June 9, 2021. The International Supermodified Association will join the NEMA midgets and NEMA Lites on the card in what will be a spectacular Open Wheel Show. NASCAR star Ken Schrader has also announced his return to the racing card at Seekonk.

The race, one of the most coveted of the NEMA season, is in memory of legendary car owner Louie Seymour. Seymour, a Marlboro, Mass., native, died in 1996. He began in racing in the Midwestern-based USAC Silver Crown division, earning the nickname "Boston Louie" from fans and competitors who connected him with the capital of his home state. As a car owner, Seymour had more than 50 drivers in his equipment, including NASCAR star, Ken Schrader. Known as the "man who traveled a million miles," many legends of Silver Crown racing drove for Seymour, including Rich Volger, Gary Bettenhausen, Sheldon Kinser and Joe Saldana.

"If you have any open cockpit [racing] history, you understand just where 'Boston' Louie Seymour stands," said six time champion Randy Cabral. "To win a race with that name on it is very, very special and to have won it multiple times is even more special," said Cabral.

Making the race even more special, is the continued tradition and partnership with Seekonk Speedway. The first officially sanctioned NEMA race took place at the famed Seekonk, on May 30, 1953. Sixty eight years later, the midgets now storm around the banked, round oval in the low 11 second range.

"Seekonk Speedway is excited to continue the tradition of the Boston Louie on a midweek race. NEMA always brings great talent and puts on an exciting race that brings out all the great aspects of Midget racing. The Speedway has has a long running great partnership with NEMA and looks forward to being as part of their racing program for years to come. The return of the ISMA Supermodifeds on this new event just adds to the excitement," said Ed St. Germain, Director of Business Development at Seekonk.

"We are very excited to continue our partnership with Seekonk," said NEMA President, Tim Bertrand. "Seekonk is and always has been the ideal track for the midgets - fast, wide, and combines handling with driver skill more than anything else," said Bertrand. "We're excited to be back, and thank Ed and the entire Seekonk family for having us."

NEMA's 1000th Race - Star Speedway - 8/23/14
CARLSON - CABRAL - ZYCH

Recognizing Some
NEMA Milestones

Spring, 2016 -- 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.
