Bumpy track leads to equipment problems for ice racers

MOULTONBOROUGH — The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club got another nice weekend on Sunday for their weekly races, but a bumpy track on Lee Pond took a toll on equipment. Several broken wheels and axles were cause by the large bumps.

Young Matt Demond of Moultonborough, driving the Miracle Farms Landscaping pickup, led the way to the checkered flag in the Junior division with Trevor Greene in the runner up spot.

The 4-Cylinder RWD division was up next. Last week's winner and 2014 Champion Tim Chase of Northfield tangled with lap traffic while leading, handing the win to Fabian Smith of Meredith in the Scott Burns Landscaping S10 pickup.
In the 4-Cylinder FWD division, Derek Jeanson of Sandwich dominated the race in his new Hyundai racer. Derek put in another strong run this week and went on to take the checkers.

After breaking an axle last week, Alley Ripley of Center Ossipee, driving the bright red Varney Logging Monte Carlo, survived a battle of attrition in the V8 Stock division to take the win. Alley currently leads points in the Stock division

In the Modified division, Tuftonboro's Jake Williams grabbed the early lead and there was no catching him. Jake held on for a dominating win.

The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club races on Lee and Berry Ponds in central NH as long as the ice stays safe. A decision will be made at this week's Club meeting about the remainder of the season. At the pit meeting this week, March 28 was announced as the date for the awards banquet. Check www.LRIRC.com or their Facebook page for the latest race/ice status, information about coming events, and for race photos.
