(Naples, ME – September 23, 2007) Saturday was qualifying day for all six divisions plus the Roadrunner and Wildcat features.

In the T & K and Sons Concrete 25, it was Edward Pierce in the #77 of Alfred, Me taking off to an early lead, but Tim Caswell of Waterboro in the #47 soon tracked him down and took the lead.  Caswell held off Pierce and a hard charging Todd Lefebvre of Gorham in the #26 to take the win.  Shawn bracket of Gray was fourth in the #31, and David Palmer of Waterboro brought the #01 home fifth.


The Wildcats rolled out of the pits after the field of 53 cars was thinned down to the 31 qualifiers in a series of five heat races for the Victory Lane Indoor Karting 75. Dan Wink of N. Berwick, ME finished second in the 2006 Wildcat feature and was looking to go one better this time. He put his win in the first heat to good use as he lead from the pole and moved out to a two car lead in the first few laps.


However, his lead soon went away as a big pileup off turn two put six cars into the backstretch wall.  On the restart, Wink again took off with the #90 of Dickie Randall of Limington right behind.  By lap 10, Dave Brannon of Lisbon in the #14, the 2006 Wiscasset Raceway champion, joined the top two.


On lap 20, something on the #12 of Skip Tripp of Lisbon broke and oiled down turn one sending cars scattering over the banking and through the infield.  After a caution on lap 33 for a one car spin in turn one, the #03 of Maurice Young of Windsor made his way to second past Randall who got caught on the outside and was freight-trained back to fourth. 


The top four were moving away from the field as the reached the halfway mark. On lap 41 Randall took third back from Brannon as the top four were cruising nose to tail, and by lap 50 Alby Ovitt of Barrington, NH in the #35 came from deep in the field to join the fray. 


As the laps wound down everyone was waiting for someone to make a move to challenge Wink, but they were all afraid of getting caught on the outside like Randall did earlier. However, as we got to lap 65, Ovitt, the #27 of Kenny Harrison of Freeport, ME, the #113 of Tommy Tompkins of Carthage had joined the parade at the front.


With ten laps to go, it was Wink, Young, Randall, Brannon, Ovitt, Harrison, and Tompkins. Ovitt decided it was time to go and made a move to the outside on Brannon which allowed Harrison and Tompkins to slip by Ovitt on the inside. Meanwhile, up front Young was knocking on Wink’s bumper as they came down the backstretch with two to go, but Wink had enough left to hold young off and take the win. Young was second, followed by Brannon, Randall, Harrison, Tompkins,  Ovitt, David Wildes of Limington in the #29 was eighth, Ronnie Carbeil, Jr of E. Waterboro in the 12X ninth, and Michael Poole of Hollis in the #0 rounded out the top ten.
