Published DateThe Lakes Region Ice Racing Club opened the 2013 season of automobile, oval track ice racing last Sunday on Lee Pond. The Milton ice racing club did not have enough ice to race and many of their members traveled to the Lakes Region to race. Lots of cars and lots of fans made for a great show. Competitors raced in the following divisions: juniors, four-cyclinder, V8 stock and modifieds.
Adam Cahoon, driving his bright orange Ollie's Garage number 99 Monte Carlo, won the V8 stock division. Moultonborough's Jackie Martel won the junior division. Rick Martel of Moultonborough took first in the modified race. In the four-cylinder competition, Tim Chase, driving last year's championship-winning number 40 MR2, took the checkered flag.
The Club's Latchkey Cup to benefit the Norris Cotton Cancer Center is scheduled for next Saturday. Area drivers will gather Saturday at 10 a.m. to race in the 29th annual cup.
