MOULTONBOROUGH — The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club was on Lee Pond in Moultonborough again this week for the 6th race of the 2014 season. The week's mild weather and softer ice made for excellent races. The West Ossipee NAPA store, Ossipee Auto Parts, sponsored this week's races providing the trophies and prizes for winners and giveaways for the fans.
The regular hot laps were skipped this week to save the ice on the 1/3 mile oval. The first 10 lap features for each of the 4 divisions were run followed by an intermission. After intermission, the second features were run and a winner determined by the best combined finish.
The Junior division was dominated by Center Harbor's Cody Burn driving the newly repaired Nissan. Cody won both features for the overall win with Trevor Greene second and Garrett Poitras in third.
The V8 Stock class was again won by Moultonborough's Matt Morrill driving his beautiful black Monte Carlo. Matt powered to both feature wins for the overall, with Danny Cook coming out of retirement to take second.
A second place in the first feature followed by a first in the second feature gave Moultonborough's Matt Taylor the overall win in the 4-Cylinder division. Tim Chase and Scott Burns rounded out the podium. The overall win gave Matt the lead in the points race which he entered tied with Tim.
It was the Jake Williams show in the Modified division. Jake, who lives in Tuftonboro, won both features in his sprint car for the overall, followed by Jack Cook and Mike Horsch in second and third, respectively.
The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club races every Sunday at 12:30 on Berry or Lee Pond in Moultonborough through mid-March. The club is hoping that the upcoming week's cold temperatures will allow racing next week on Berry Pond.
