Lee, NH – The Laticrete Port City 100 for the Valenti Auto Mall Modified Racing Series took center stage at Lee USA Speedway Friday night, and there was plenty more feature event action on tap due to the rain that interrupted the last NASCAR Whelen All-American Series show a week earlier.

The 100-lap race went caution free well past halfway, with Jon McKennedy (1-5), Chris Pasteryak (6-17), and Rowan Pennink (18-82) leading laps before the real action started. McKennedy got back to the lead on lap 83, but he was knocked out of contention when Tommy Barrett tried to grab the lead.

Melissa Fifield a New Season a New Challenge

Story by Chris Roy

This year Melissa Fifield has made the change from Allison cars to Modifieds. I asked her what made her decide to race Modifieds rather than PASS Super Late Models or the ACT Late Models? Her response, “I have always loved Modifieds and dreamed about racing in the Valenti Modified Racing Series.”

There is approximately 17 modified races this season all across New England, and the Pine Knoll race team is hoping to make them all. “I really like the amount of races but, wish there was a race in Maine. I am looking forward to running at tracks that I’ve never been to.” Though the one race Melissa is most looking forward to is in Lee. “My favorite track is Lee USA Speedway since it is my home track and it’s a great racing facility.” The VMRS returns to Lee Speedway on June 29th.


Lee, NH – 2011 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Small Block Supermodified champion Wayne Helliwell, Jr. couldn’t close out the season with a feature win on Oktoberfest weekend, but he won every other race he entered, taking down the checkers in both the Pro Stocks on Saturday night, and the Late Models on Sunday afternoon.

An impressive field of 34 Pro Stock/Super Late Models assembled for the final round of the Six-Pack Shootout, but several contenders, including ME veteran Mike Rowe and PASS race winner Gary Smith, were eliminated in a series of tangles that slowed the action repeatedly over the first half of the race.
