(Hermon, Me) Clouds surrounded Hermon, but the rain stayed away, for the second week in a row, from Maine’s Family Fun Track, Speedway 95.

The Pro-Limited division went caution-free with Bradley’s Deane Smart at the front of the field. Rookie Roland “J.R. Rockin’” Robinson of Stueben improved from last weeks third place finish, to grab the second spot. Brenton Parritt of Stueben was sidelined for the heat race, due to a mechanical feature, but joined the field in a borrowed car, from his brother Mike Parritt, also of Stueben to take third. The win puts Parritt in first place, by 84 points over Duane Seekins of Stockton Springs.
Kris Watson of Hermon restarted his winning streak with a win in the Super Street heat race, and then starting at the rear, he picked up the feature win as well. Artie Maguire of Bucksport crossed the line for second, with Travis Beale of Winterport in third in the caution free race. Watson has a commanding points lead, 111 points over Franklin’s Mike Overlock.
There was a Rookie at the front of the field at the end of the Strictly Street race, Steuben’s Wayne Parritt. Jr. earned the first win of his career at the track edging out Brad Norris of Ellsworth and another rookie, Bangor’s Shawn Hamel, II, who finished second and third respectively. Jordan Pearson of Glenburn was running in second trying to pass for the lead when he blew a tire forcing him to take a seventh place finish, but retains the points lead, by just 20 points over Parritt.
There was only one caution in the Sport-Four race. Pole sitter and defending champion Lewis Batchelder led much of the race, while Steve Moulton of Glenburn worked his way to the front of the field to take the lead away and grab the win, his second win in a row in the Sport-Fours. Batchelder settled for second, and David Green of Hampden scored the third place trophy.
A blown tire plagued the race for Jordan Pearson in the Strictly Streets, ironically, earlier in the evening; the same problem came up for Pearson in the final lap of the Full Sized Truck race. He had been trying to pass Ernie “Big Ern” Wallace of Winterport from the inside, when Pearson lost his tire. Luckily, Pearson had enough cushion between him and the third place car of Anthony Moore of Brewer to hold the second spot.
