The Dad’s 4 By Tool & Supply feature winners of the 55th consecutive racing season in the Joe Mama’s Sporting Goods 4/6 Cylinder Enduro Jason Porter, 6/8 Cylinder Demolition Derby Jason Vezina, 4 Cylinder Demolition Derby Cary George, Sting Vintage Race Cars Powder Puff Morgen Kendall, WYKR Due Enduro Jason Porter & Diane Porter.
The 5th annual Sunday Funday was once again a huge success despite mother nature offering up a cool day with on and off sprinkles throughout. While wet weather on a normal race night will stop the action on Sunday/Funday most of the events can be enhanced with a little bit of rain on the track, keeping the excitement even more interesting!

Before the main events, Joe Mama’s Sporting Goods 4/6 Cylinder Enduro and the 4 Cyl and 6/8 Cylinder Demolition Derbies the day offered up the Sting Vintage Race Cars Powder Puff and the WYKR “DUO” Enduro.

In past years the Sting Vintage Race Cars Powder Puff had waned in car count, and the track officials were only going to host it again if there were enough cars to put on a show. As sign-in began it became quickly apparent that there were more than enough brave ladies prepared to get behind the wheel of their man’s machine or a friend to show the boys how it gets done. The field of twenty-three was enough to not only hold the event but to double the lap count from previous years. Eleven of the field would still be on the lead lap when the checkers waved twenty laps later, with Morgen Kendall driving her boyfriend Tyler Tremblay’s machine, an R&L Auto Towing & Recovery Late Model regular. Kaitlyn Christian driving friend Brian Longs machine made Kendall work for it, crossed the line finishing strong in second with Tynika Oliver in her cousin Luke Peters machine taking third. Shelby Peters in her dad Toby Peters car and Heather Rozzi in friend Anna Rickers car, a Peanuts Auto LLC Ridge Runner rounded out the top five.

Up next was a first-time event for the Sunday Funday, the WYKR “DUO” Enduro. Again, a strong field of teams signed up for this event. The event required two people in the car a man and women, at lap ten the field was red flagged, and the fun began. All teams had to get out of their machines and switch drivers. Once all drivers were ready to go the green was dropped and they raced on for the next ten laps to declare a winner. At the end of twenty laps the twenty-one car field was led to the checkers by none other than “led foot” Porter and his wife Diane. Jason Porter a regular in the Peanuts Auto LLC Ridge Runners, so it was no surprise to see they had him driving the second half of the event. Maybe next year there will be rules enhancement to make the less seasoned driver drive second, that would surely make things interesting both on the track and in the car! Luke Peters and Shelby Peters came home in second with Jeremiah Little and Down Bodenhamer finishing in third. A mystery team, someone failed to sign in, crossed the line in fourth with Aren Keene a LaValley Building Supply Dirt Stock regular and wife Ashley Racine rounding out the top five.

The demo action offered plenty of excitement for the fans with Jason Vezina beating out his competition in the 6/8 Cylinder Demolition Derby and Cary George in the 4 Cylinder Demolition Derby. Our sincerest thanks to Dean Switzer and his team for running these events, which are always a great show for the fans.

The pits were overflowing with Joe Mama’s Sporting Goods 4/6 Cylinder Enduro machines, and when the green flag waved on their final points event of 150 laps it was Enduro action at its finest! The on and off drizzle didn’t dampen the packed stands of fans enthusiasm as they cheered on their favorite driver. There was plenty of the usual Enduro excitement with plenty of spins and flips to keep the fans on the edge of their seats. When the checkers waved on the 150 main event there was just one car left on the lead lap, truly showing he is the fittest of the survivors, Jason Porter crossed the line in first with Brandon Gray one lap down coming home in second and Toby Peters in third three laps down. A post-race inspection would find Toby Peters not quite in line with the tire rule, giving Travis King the third place spot with Ryan Sayers and Charlie Smith now rounding out the top five. Ryan Sayers fourth place finish will officially make him your Joe Mama’s Sporting Goods 4/6 Cylinder Enduro track champion for 2022. The top five will be recognized at the annual awards banquet on November 11th.

This concludes the on track action and 99Rock weekly racing events for 2022 at the Ridge. Up next will be the Annual Awards Banquets being held once again at our fine supporter the Fireside Inn in W. Lebanon NH. Friday November 11th will be “fendered” night where we recognized the top ten in the Peanuts Auto LLC Ridge Runners, the top ten in the LaValley Building Supply Dirt Stocks, the top five in the R&L Auto Towing & Recovery Late Models, and the top five in the Joe Mama’s Sporting Goods 4/6 Cylinder Enduro series. The festivities will continue on Saturday night when we will recognize the ‘open wheels” top ten in the Sabil & Sons DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds, the Wells River Chevrolet DIRTcar Sportsman Coupes, the top ten in the USAC DMA Midges, and top five in the Bear Ridge competing 360 Sprint Cars (SCoNE).
