Eddie MacDonald has enjoyed great success at the “Magic Mile” with three
victories in the last four K & N Pro Series East races and hopes the streak
continues in the New England 125 on Friday, June 25th. The Grimm
Construction Chevy started on the pole and on the outside of the first row
during that stretch.

“We love racing at Loudon and have had super runs there,” said MacDonald
from his Newbury, Mass. shop. I always felt we could win there and now that
we have, we want to keep it going. This is our “home” track so the team
wants to do well in front of our fans. We travel so much now, it is really a
lot of fun to see and be with all the people who have supported us through
the years.”

The veteran driver from Rowley, Mass. knows it will be no small task to
repeat but is confident another trip to victory lane is possible saying,
“The level of competition in our series is really tough but we know we have
the car to be competitive for the win. Rollie has this place figured out
with the set-up so we just have to qualify up front, stay out of trouble,
and we will be there at the end. The crew is excited to race at NHMS and
they have been working really hard getting everything ready.”
MacDonald expects positive things this week after some disappointing runs,”
We need to turn things around especially after our run at Martinsville that
knocked us to twelfth in the points. We hope to dig ourselves out of the
hole we are in and this is just the place to do it. We know we can win after
getting three out of four there, but we will have to be on top of our game.
Hopefully the car will be as fast as it was at Martinsville. It was flying
before the flat tire and the broken sway bar. Things have been a little
frustrating so far but a good, solid finish at Loudon will certainly help. “
A long time sponsor will be back on the hood with MacDonald saying, “I am
glad to have NEMO – New England Mechanical Overlay from Pembroke, NH, back
as our primary sponsor this weekend. Owners Ron and Becky Bennett have been
great supporters of ours for a long time now. NEMO was on the car for our
NHMS wins, as well as our ACT Invitational win there last year, and we are
happy to have them with us again. Our team has a lot of people to thank from
team owner Rob Grimm to all our other sponsors including: A & B Vending, HMS
Motorsports, Waymart Building Center, R. B. Fries of Waymart, and Hanover
Place. We also have the great support of Racing with Jesus. We could not do
any of this without the support of these people and we would like to thank
them with a win.”

The New England 125 will take the green flag on Friday, June 25th at 5:00pm.
Practice and qualifying are scheduled for Thursday.
