LEE, NH – The Lee USA Speedway announced plans and changes for the 2011
season at a general meeting for the track held in Rochester, New Hampshire
on December 4th.  The changes were met with a very positive response from
the 78 race teams that were represented.

Highest on the list of changes discussed for next season was the change to a
four division format.  The Late Models and Road Runners will no longer
compete at the track, allowing a purse increase for the remaining divisions.

A big part of that purse increase comes through a driver loyalty bonus
program.  The teams who compete regularly at Lee will see a significant
increase in their payoff, especially for finishing positions outside of the
top five.

“We have to start taking better care of all of the teams who support us
every week, not just the ones who finish up front, and this new bonus plan
does just that,” stated track Promoter Bob Watson.

The Small Block Super Modifieds will headline the weekly program, with the
track champion very likely to earn a trip to Charlotte, North Carolina for
the NASCAR Home Tracks Banquet as the New Hampshire State Champion.

Several new teams have expressed interest in competing with the Small Block
Supers.   With the Late Models no longer on the schedule, Track Champion
Wayne Helliwell Jr., will be among the new Small Block Supers entries in a
car prepared by the Witkum family. Fields of more than 20 cars are now a
real possibility for 2011, with a eighth place finisher now paying $250 with
$150 to start the event.

With higher car counts and a new Hoosier “Spec” Tire designed specifically
for the SBS, fans should also expect some better racing from the new
headline division.  The Late Model Sportsman class will also see a
noticeable change in their purse structure as they compete for a
championship in the second tier NASCAR Weekly Series standings.

Lee USA strives to give both fans and race teams a better experience each
season when they attend the track, and more improvements will help insure
that.   A new message board with video capabilities is expected to be ready
for the season opening event.   A turbin blower machine has also been
ordered. This device will help sweep the track clean from fluid leaks during
the racing program.

A new tech shed will also be constructed in the infield, and with just four
divisions competing, the SBS will now be pitting outside of the infield,
allowing fans a better view of the action.

Also announced at the meeting was the development of a new Super Late Model
Pro Stock Series.  The six race series will include three races at Lee, and
three more at Canaan, New Hampshire, with a point fund to the champion.

The complete 2011 schedule is now posted on the website:

with an improved overall racing experience for race fans, the Lee USA
Speedway is poised to weather the storm of economic uncertainty, moving
forward with some of the best NASCAR racing action on Friday nights at New
Hampshire’s Center of Speed.
