MOULTONBOROUGH — The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club moved to Lee Pond in Moultonboro last Sunday for its weekly races. The special sharpened chains dig large ruts and groves in the tracks, making fresh tracks a necessity nearly every week. Lots of families were among the fans that gathered on the ice for the 4th race of the season. The trophy sponsor for this week's racing was the At Your Service NH Waste Management company serving the Lakes Region.
The day started with hot laps and the first features for each of the four divisions. After intermission the second features were run and a winner was determined by the best combined finish.
The junior division was dominated by Moultonboro's Trevor Greene who won both features for the overall win. Daniele Bouchers of Meredith took second, with Cody Burns taking third in his S10 pickup.
The V8 Stock class was again dominated by Moultonboro's Matt Morrill driving his black Monte Carlo. Matt powered to both feature wins for the overall, with Alley Ripley of Center Ossipee and Tim Chase of Northfield finishing second and third respectively.
Tim Chase had the 4 Cylinder field covered this week, winning both features in his beautifully prepared Toyota MR2. Tim commented in victory circle "I was bouncing around a lot on the rough track. The MR2 is a pretty light car". Matt Taylor and Chris Taylor, driving his sister's car, took second and third places.
The Modified division turned in to the "Jake Williams show" this week. Driving his sprint car Jake won both features using the outside to do his passing. Jack Cook and Fred Fecteau rounded out the modified winners circle.
The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club races every Sunday at 12:30 on Berry or Lee Pond in Moultonboro from January through mid-March. Check the club's website at www.LakesRegionIceRacingClub.com or the Facebook page for the latest race/ice status, information about coming events, and for race photos.
