Brockton, MA – Jeff Abold, one of the area’s most promising open-cockpit racers, will return to Northeastern Midget Association action Friday night, June 26 at Lee USA Speedway. The 21-year old will drive a Gaerte-powered Hawk, a joint effort between the Abold and Seymour families.


Abold has a case if he believes the tricky Lee layout owes him. Driving the Seymour 29, the son of Pat Abold was well on his way to victory last year when he lost a rocker arm. He did turn the fastest feature lap (13.521) at Lee last year.


Defending champion and current point leader Randy Cabral, coming off a win at Twin State leads NEMA into Lee. Jeff Horn, a winner at Lee last year, Adam Cantor, Russ and Greg Stoehr, Chris DeRitis and Jim Miller are other threats.

The NEMA Lites will be on hand as well. Paul Luggelle was the Lee Lites winner last year.

The new team figures on making most of the remaining NEMA events as well as some USAC shows in July and August.

Abold burst on the NEMA scene with the Seymours in 2008, scoring a win at Seekonk. He added to his resume with a Boston Louie success last summer.
