Ice racers induct young cancer survivor as honorary member

Sunday's blustery weather didn't slow down the racers or the fans at the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club's fourth event of the 2013 season.
Young Eric Adams was introduced to the drivers and made an honorary member of the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club. Eric was presented with a trophy as a winner in his battle against cancer along with an autographed goody bag and a Latchkey Cup sweatshirt. His family was given a gas card and a grocery card to help offset the extra expenses they have encountered. The donation was funded by the annual Latchkey benefit race held earlier in the season.
Chris Taylor won the Juniors Division. Rick Martel of Moultonborough took the trophy in the Modified Division. Northfield's Tim Chase, racing in his Toyota MR2, again dominated the 4-Cylinder Division. In the V8 Stock Division, Moultonborough's Matt Morrill won both feature races.
The Club's next event is scheduled for Sunday, ice conditions permitting, on either Lee or Berry Pond starting at 12:30. Check www.LakesRegionIceRacingClub.com or the club's Facebook page for the latest status, information about upcoming events, photos and video.
