Published DateA snowy Sunday didn't stop the Lakes Region ice racers or their fans from gathering on Lee Pond for the fifth event of the 2013 season. The club went to a single, 12 lap feature format to make the best of the ice conditions.
This week's event sponsor was Burns Automotive Service of Moultonborough NH. Matt Burns presented the trophies to the division winners at the victory circle ceremonies.
The Juniors were the first division out on the ice. Jackie Martel, in her VW Rabbit, took the checkers in a flag-to-flag run. Chris Taylor settled for second place.
The V8 Stock Division was next out with Moultonboro's Adam Cahoon taking the win after rival Danny Cook dropped out with his radiator plugged with snow.
Jack Cook of Moultonboro missed several of the earlier 2013 races due to a shoulder injury, but was back in racing form on Sunday. By holding the inside line, Cook held off Rick Martel and took the win in the Modifieds Division.
Northfield's Tim Chase in his Toyota MR2 again dominated the 4 Cylinder Division feature, chalking up his seventh feature win of the season.
