The track at Wiscasset Speedway has buzzed with plenty of hot, fast racing action in recent weeks, as the four events in June proved sizzling affairs.

Wiscasset wrapped racing for the month on June 24 with Group 2 in action, plus the return of the Amsoil Nelcar Legends. The Norm's Used Cars Strictly Streets had the spotlight race for the program supported by the Late Model Sportsman, Outlaw Minis, and Modifieds. Cole Watson had the hot hand on the night, running to his first points win at Wiscasset over Bryan Robbins and Jonathan Emerson. Other winners included Corey Hall, Mark Lucas, and Zach Audet.

As of press time, the Late Model Sportsman victor remains listed as unofficial pending a mandatory engine inspection.

In the 35-lap spotlight feature for the Strictly Streets, Cole Watson lined up at the pole position with Kim Knight alongside. Knight would grab the lead through the early laps while Watson followed closely in second.

Watson retook the lead on a lap 13 restart and never looked back, rolling into victory lane to grab his first points win at Wiscasset. He was a previous winner of the Top Gun Strictly Shootout. Bryan Robbins was the big mover in the race, picking his way up from 12th to finish second. He made the move of the race with eight laps to go as he jumped from fourth up to second exiting turn four in a spirited battle with Jonathan Emerson and Knight.

Emerson, the third generation racer from Sabattus stayed in the top three the entire race and rolled his car in to claim the third place trophy. His father Zach Emerson and point leader Michael Haynes filled out the top five.

It had been nearly a month since the Amsoil Nelcar Legends had made an appearance. They brought a healthy field of 18 cars onto the track for their 25-lap feature with Zachary Godbout and Bob Weymouth leading the pack to the green.

Weymouth held the lead until young hot shoe Austin Teras took the lead away. That lead held up for a few laps but was soon passed by Corey Hall who followed him through traffic from eighth. Hall made his drive down from New Brunswick, Canada worth his while as he survived one mid-race caution and held off a late charge from Teras to secure the victory.

Teras settled for the runner-up finish and Weymouth took third. Defending champ Kevin Girard Jr. was one to watch as he worked the traffic like a champ, starting 18th and finishing fourth. Casey Call of Pembroke, N.H. also had a strong run from 16th up to fifth.

Eighteen drivers took to the track for the 35-lap feature for the Wood Pellet Warehouse Late Model Sportsman division with Steve Minott and Will Collins making up the front row. As usual, there were only a couple cautions to slow the action.

Collins held the lead through the first ten laps until defending champ, Chris Thorne, blasted up from his tenth starting position to grab the lead. He was followed by the point leader Nick Hinkley from his 17th starting spot.

Hinkley reached second by lap 15, but Thorne had built up a comfortable half straightaway advantage. A late race caution set up a green-white-checkered dash for the win with Thorne leading the way across the stripe first, ahead of Hinkley and Collins.

Unfortunately, Thorne's victory was short lived as his car did not pass post-race inspection for excessive left side weight. The win would then be bumped up to Hinkley, however, the win remains unofficial as Hinkley's engine was pulled for mandatory inspection as a result of his third win.

Collins would go home with the second place trophy and Brandon Bailey would notch his third straight podium in third, after starting 16th. The top five was completed by Ryan St. Clair and Tyler Robbins.

The Kennebec Equipment Rental Outlaw Minis had their last tune-up race before their 75-lap Mini Madness race on Saturday July 8. Former champ Jimmy Childs lined up on the front row with Jake Hendsbee for the 25-lap tilt.

The race looked well within Childs' control through the first eight laps, but things took a major turn just a lap later as he suddenly slowed on the backstretch, handing over his lead to Hendsbee and bringing out the only caution of the race.

Hendsbee held the lead on the ensuing restart long enough to get to turn one and from there it was the Zach Audet Show. The defending champ, who had missed a race with a blown engine, charged his way up from tenth to grab the lead and from there easily drove to his third victory of the season. The win came at an expense however as he found, upon his required engine inspection, that he had cracked the block in yet another power plant.

Hendsbee ran his best race in the Outlaw Minis and posted his first podium finish in second. May Driver of the Month and Outlaw Mini point leader Brent Roy ran another solid race and claimed his fifth podium finish in as many races. Shawn Kimball and Tim Collins finished in fourth and fifth respectively.

The Midcoast Region NAPA Modifieds finished out the evening's program with a 30-lap feature. With just seven cars answering the bell, it was easy pickings for defending champ Mark Lucas of Harpswell. He started from the pole position and held off a pair of early race restarts.

From there, he cruised to his second modified checkered flag of the season. Former champ Allan Moeller turned in a solid performance in second and took over the points lead in the process as Adam Chadbourne succumbed to mechanical problems. The previous winner Joe Williams had an eventful race, helping to bring out the race's two caution flags only to bounce back each time and roll into victory lane for third.

June 17 racing

You probably won't find many drivers that are having more fun on a race track these days than Thunder 4 Mini racer Logan Melcher. Who could blame the second generation racer from Jay? He is, after all, undefeated to start 2017 season. His most recent win though, was a bit more challenging than the first two.

The Thunder 4 Minis had the 35 lap spotlight feature June 17 at Wiscasset Speedway as Group 1 was in action on the track. Melcher navigated his way through the pack only to roll into victory lane to claim the second place trophy. However, a disqualification in post-race inspection for the initial winner, followed by required engine inspection finally produced his third win of the season.

Other winners on the night included Spencer Wenners in the GoKarts; Mark Lucas in the Super Streets; Austin Teras in the 4-cylinder Pros; and Daren Ripley in the ServPro of Biddeford-Saco Pro Stocks.

The program started with a special "Flex division" race with a 15-lap exhibition tilt for Go Karts. The large group of fans got to see a handful of young kids showing their talents on Wiscasset's inner front stretch go-kart track.

Spencer Wenners picked his way up from the back of the pack to claim the lead just before halfway and then held off a late challenge from Noah Alexander for top honors. Spencer had also won the first go-kart exhibition race the year before. Alexander was strong in his first race, finishing second. Wyatt Oakes wasn't able to break free of traffic in time to challenge the lead pair and would settle for third.

In the 35-lap spotlight feature for the Thunder 4 Minis, Travis Poulliot looked like the man to beat as he pulled out to a commanding lead of a full straightaway. A handful of cautions gave the likes of Jeff Minchin, David Greenleaf, and Donald Mooney a shot at Poulliot, while Melcher and Michael Golding made their way up from the back of the pack.

By halfway, Melcher had raced his way into second but wasn't able to reel in Poulliot. A pair of late race restarts gave a test to the pair, but Poulliot came out on top both times and run under the checkers to claim the win. However, that result did not stick as Poulliot's car failed post race inspection.

Melcher would be handed the win, his third of the season. With the third win came a mandatory engine inspection, which Melcher passed, solidifying the victory. Goulding moved up the finish order to claim second and Greenleaf notched a career-best third place. Spencer Sweatt and Devan Robinson filled out the top five in the final order.

In support action, Daren Ripley led the 40-lap feature for the ServPro of Biddeford-Saco Pro Stocks from wire to wire for his first victory since 2014. In an emotional victory lane celebration, Ripley dedicated the win to his uncle Dick Ripley who had passed away last year.

The race had a couple early cautions that thinned the starting field of 13 but then settled down into a long green flag run. Multi-champion, Scott Chubbuck chased down Ripley to wage a mid-race challenge but faded back to finish second by a half second. Ajay Picard started 12th and ran a strong race to finish third. The top five was filled our by Kevin Morse and Brandon Sprague, each turning in a season-best finish.

The 25-lap feature for the Super Streets turned out the best battle of the night, as Jason Curtis raced door to door over the final ten laps with defending champ Mark Lucas. With Curtis on the inside lane and Lucas on the outside lane, and the fans yelling in excitement, the two charged out of turn four to the checkers with Curtis taking the checkered flag by just 5/100th of a second.

Things took a turn once again, much to the dismay of Curtis, as his car failed post-race inspection, handing the victory over to Lucas; the second straight win for the reigning Driver of the Year. Jason Oakes claimed the second place trophy and former champ Josh Bailey was bumped up to third. Sean Johnson and Michael Harrison completed the top five.

Austin Teras jumped out of his usual Nelcar Legend ride, and into a 4-cylinder Pro for the first time. The mission was successful for the young man from Windham as he charged up from the back of the field to claim victory in the 25-lap feature.

Once Teras took charge of the race attention soon turned to the entertaining fight for second between Max Rowe and three-time defending champ Kamren Knowles. The pair traded the spot back and forth over three late race restarts with the youngster Rowe notching the runner-up finish. Knowles, who is only running a partial campaign this season, settled for third. He was followed by Ryan Hayes and Craig Dunn.

The results from June 17 included:

June 10 racing

Wiscasset Speedway showcased Group 2 on June 10 in front of another big crowd. Three different drivers picked up their first wins of the 2017 campaign, while another took early control of the tracks most competitive division with his second victory of the year.

Midcoast Region Napa Modifieds were the spotlight division with a 40-lap main event. Joe Williams withstood a late race restart and pulled away from defending champ Mark Lucas for a convincing win; his first of the year.

The race of the day was the one behind Williams for second between Tom Young and Nick Reno. The two, racing wheel to wheel, for the final ten laps saw Reno grab the runner-up trophy on the outside by less than a foot. Young settled for third.

Other winners on the night included Nick Hinkley on the Late Model Sportsman, Shawn Kimball in the Outlaw Minis, and Joe Hutter in the Strictly Streets. The flex race was a 100 lap Enduro, won by Zach Emerson.

In the 25-lap feature for the Kennebec Equipment Rental Outlaw Minis, Shawn Kimball finally shook off a month's worth of hard luck and bad breaks to lead the feature wire to wire. The two-time champ was chased across the line by four time champ Rob Greenleaf and Tim Collins. For Collins, it was his second straight podium appearance.

The Wood Pellet Warehouse Late Model Sportsman rolled out another stacked field of 21 cars for their 35-lap feature. Nick Hinkley took sole possession of the points lead with his second straight win. Hinkley started 15th and took advantage of a couple mid-race restarts and took the lead from Ben Erskine with five laps to go en-route to the victory.

Brandon Bailey worked the traffic nicely from back in the pack to pick up a career best second place finish. Coastal 200 champ, Andrew McLaughlin, charged up the outside lane on the final lap beating Alex Waltz to the stripe by a scant 6/1000th of a second to claim third.

Strictly Streets, sponsored by Norms Used Cars of Wiscasset, had plenty of action in their 25-lap feature. Joe Hutter held an early lead until he was passed by Bryan Robbins. Only to get it back on a late race restart when Robbins knocked out of the lead by Zac Bowie.

Hutter held tight to the bottom of the race track when he was challenged over the final five laps by point leader Mike Haynes. His hard work paid off with his first career win at Wiscasset Speedway. Haynes joined Hutter in victory lane along with Zach Emerson, making his first podium appearance of the season.

The flex race of the night was a 100 lap Enduro. Forty-nine cars answered the opening bell and fanned out five wide thru the turns in search of the checkered flag. When all was said and done, nearly at the end of their one hour time limit, Zach Emerson, who had started back in 45th, emerged with the victory.

Runner-up, Josh Dube, was the only other car left on the lead lap. Wiscasset flagman Ron Whitcomb, turned the duties over to assistant Larry Arsenault and drove his car to a third place finish, followed by Brad Clement and Johnathan Rines.

The official results from June 10 included:

June 3 racing

Wiscasset Speedway's Pro Stocks turned out a race the night of June 3 that had all the makings of a movie on the big screen: edge of the seat action, suspense, hero's, villains, plot twists, and a surprise outcome that few would have expected – except of course the eventual winner.

There was more than the usual accolades and prize money on the line. The 50-lap spotlight feature also offered the winner a guaranteed provisional for the $10,000 to win Prostock / Super Late Model National event at Seekonk Speedway in July. Sixteen drivers lined up to accept the challenge and when the dust cleared and the checkers flew it was Phil Richardson Jr. lifting the first place trophy, while many of the early favorites loaded up with banged up rides and dashed hopes of the big win. Nate Tribbett and Charlie Colby joined Richardson in victory lane.

Other winners on the night included Mark Lucas in the Super Streets, Logan Melcher in the Thunder 4 Minis, and Spencer Vaughn in the N.E.4-cyl Pros. The show was presented by Bozzutos and their family of IGA Food Stores for the benefit of the Dream Ride for Special Olympics.

The 50-lap feature for the ServPro of Biddeford-Saco Pro Stocks rolled out with Daren Ripley and Brandon Sprague on the front row. Eyes were also fixed back in the middle of the pack on five time champ Scott Chubbuck as well as Ben Ashline, who had been turning near record laps earlier in the day.

Ripley quickly jumped out to a comfortable lead until the first caution flew on lap eight as Ashline turned Joe Decker. The race would then take its first major turn on the ensuing restart when Ripley and Wyatt Alexander failed to cooperate on two straight restart attempts, sending the pair to the back of the field and moving Charlie Colby and Jeff Burgess to the front.

Colby took command of the race with Chubbuck charging around Burgess into second. However, Colby himself would bring out the second caution of the race on lap 23, when he inexplicably lost control and spun out on his own coming out of turn four. Chubbuck found himself the next man up to lead the charge on the lap 24 restart. He would hold serve for the next eight laps until, as anticipated, Ashline arrived to take the lead from him on lap 32.

That pass for the lead would be wiped off the board though. Lap 32 also brought out the race's third caution for a minor spin by Sprague. Chubbuck and Ashline took the green for the restart, but this time Ashline started drifting back instead of forward. As if the action wasn't already intense enough, things got turned up even more over the handful of laps.

Ripley and Alexander, who had been relegated to the back of the field on lap eight, had raced their way back into contention, with Ripley driving around Chubbuck for the lead on lap 36 and just a lap later, Alexander moved into second. The fourth caution would fly on lap 40 as Ashline finally succumbed to a deflating tire sending him careening into the turn three wall.

The restart, or restarts that followed would once again turn the script on an already eventful race. The first attempt with Ripley and Alexander back at the front was short lived. Phil Richardson apparently missed a shift, stacking up a handful of cars in the middle of the pack including Sprague, Mike Moody, Cody Tribbett and Jamie Wright.

The second try at the restart was successful but only lasted one lap. Alexander attempted a crossover move on Ripley, cutting across the nose of Chubbuck and then under the leader, Ripley, on the back stretch. In an attempt to counter the move, Ripley got on the brakes into turn three bunching up the trio and sending Ripley spinning sideways through turn four. With the fans in a frenzy, the three would come to a rest in the infield, dropping them from contention.

That would turn out to be the final caution of the race. Richardson would lead the remaining drivers to the checkers, chased across the line by Nate Tribbett and Colby. Travis Benjamin struggled most of the day but managed a fourth place finish. Chubbuck salvaged a disappointing fifth place. With national event promoter Gary Sagar on hand in victory lane, Richardson confirmed that he would indeed accept the provisional and take part in the 200-lap race on July 12.

In support action, 20 of the 22 Thunder 4 Mini drivers were able to answer the bell for their 25-lap feature. Once again Logan Melcher was the class of the field in the caution-filled race. Melcher started 14th and took advantage of a pair of early cautions to take the lead on lap five. He was relatively unchallenged the rest of the way to pick up his second win of the season.

The race of the night for the Thunder 4's was between pole sitter Brian Sweatt and Dan Trask, who had charged through the pack from 18th into the top three. The two raced side by side for the final ten laps with Trask finally getting the better of Sweatt for the runner-up trophy. Sweatt settled for third.

The Super Streets 25-lap feature had its share of action, but the end result was no surprise with defending champ Mark Lucas taking top honors. He passed Sean Johnson with five laps to go and cruised to his first checkered flag of the season. Johnson had his strongest run, holding the lead for the first 20 laps, and notching a career-best second place finish.

Mike Hodgkins would turn in a strong third place run but would fail post race inspection for an unapproved rear spoiler. The third place trophy would then be awarded to former champ Josh Bailey.

While the three other divisions struggled, the 4-cylinder pros turned in a solid performance with just one early caution in their 25-lap tilt. With the long green flag run, Jeff Prindall got out to a seemingly comfortable lead.

However, that lead went away as Spencer Vaughn charged up from his eighth starting spot and chased down Prindall, taking the lead from him just past the halfway marker. From there Vaughn stayed strong and nailed down his first career win to close out the program. Prindall held on for the runner-up finish. They were joined in victory lane by Ryan Hayes making his first appearance of the season and racing from tenth to third.
