Spud 100 results

last updated on 9/12/2013

Spud 100 Dash for the Cash is in the Books! This past Sunday, September 8th racers and fans alike battled Mother Nature as the weather was anything but predictable. Pushing through cool temperatures, wind, 3 rain delays, including hail and all, the action on the track was fast and furious in between the weather. Racers competed for double payouts in all divisions including the Coca Cola Outlaw Sportsman Spud 100. The action began with the first 35 lap feature in the Aroostook Trusses Northern Lights division where, Shawn Dewley of Presque Isle held off a hard charging Matt Lloyd of New Brunswick and Former Champion, Galen Morrow to capture the win. The Peterson's Septic Service Street Stocks had a surprise winner as Emma Libby, from Glenburn, Maine raced her way to her 1st feature win in her new street stock car that she began racing this year. The 15 year old, started on the pole and led all 35 laps of the feature race taking the win over 2nd place Jon Dixon of Presque Isle and 3rd place racer J.R. Howlett also of Presque Isle. In the 3rd feature race of the day,the Percy's Auto Sales Fast Four Division competitor's had a little something extra to race for as there was a $10.00 per lap leader bonus for every lap led. Local racers were ready to battle it out hard for the money as the race began, but little did they know that Hudson, Maine native Donny Silva, had other plans for that. Silva piloted his was to the front of the field on lap one and never looked back once, leaving local racers, Keith Thibeau of Fort Fairfield and Nate Haney of Limestone to battle for 2nd place. Silva when on to capture the win and all of the bonus money while Thibeau finished 2nd and Haney 3rd respectfully. The fourth and final feature of the day was the Spud 100 which didn't have a large field of racers as previous years, but didn't lack of great racing. Once the Green flag dropped Aurthurette, New Brunswick's Robert Tomlinson, jumped out to take the lead and raced side by side with New Demark, New Brunswick racer Glenn Rasmussen for much of the first half of the race. Tomlinson led until lap 38 when Rasmussen to over the top spot. Tomlinson kept his car in position to get the lead back just before the halfway point to collect the halfway bonus money as he got the lead back on lap 47 and held on until the mandatory competition caution at lap 50. During the 10 minute pit stop that took place on the front stretch in front of the audience, race teams had the chance to adjust their cars, add fuel, and dial their car in for the final 50 laps of competition. During the stop, it appeared as Rasmussen and Fort Fairfield native, Connor Thibeau made so major adjustments to dial their cars in for the final 50 laps. During the second half Rasmussen showed that the adjustments made were paying off as he took over the lead on the restart and never looked back. Rasmussen fended off Tomlinson and Thibeau in the early stages of the second half and then extended a full straight away lead from the rest of the field. The only caution of the race came on lap 98 which provided the other 3 competitors on the lead lap once last chance to get by the number 81 car, but Rasmussen proved to be to strong on this day and captured the win over 2nd place Thibeau and 3rd place Tomlinson. Also finishing on the lead lap in 4th was Kris Watson piloting, Tim Reynolds car, as Watson's engine expired during practice earlier in the day. Over all a great day of racing for everyone to enjoy, despite the weather conditions. This weekend is the final race of the season and takes place Saturday at 1:00 as we will crown champions in all race divisions! Be sure to join us to see who gets the final win of the 2013 Season.
