Lanpher back on top at The Ridge

Former champion Reid Lanpher outgunned point leader Curtis Gerry to claim his sixth Pro Series victory of the season Saturday night at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.

Lanpher, of Manchester, could do no wrong earlier this season, winning two of the first three Pro All Stars Series (PASS) races of the year at Oxford and Beech Ridge. While his pace dropped off a bit during the peak of summer, he and crew chief Jason Ricker have returned to peak speed when it counts.

Gerry settled for second on Saturday, while Sanford's Jacob Dore filled out the podium in third. Nick Cusack, of Scarborough, crossed the stripe in fourth, while Durham's Evan Beaulieu finished fifth. ... rd/2177999

Reid Lanpher on short list of Oxford 250 favorites
2-time PASS winner and Beech Ridge point leader finished 2nd in 2015.

...This week, the 19-year-old’s name is on the short list of favorites to win Sunday’s 44th annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway. It’s been a quick ascension for Lanpher, of Manchester, one he’s still not sure he’s used to.

“It’s hard to get used to the fact that people are probably watching me a little more than they have in the past,” Lanpher said. “The biggest thing is not letting it alter what we do.”

His crew chief has seen Lanpher mature, both on and off the track, and he’s convinced that his driver is capable of just about anything behind the wheel. ... favorites/

Reid Lanpher wins Beech Ridge championship
Manchester driver wins 2nd title in last 3 seasons.

...He was also the track champion in 2015. Lanpher will also represent Maine as the state champion at the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series awards weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, in December.

“We had a good car all year long. It wasn’t going to be easy. There definitely wasn’t any point this season where we thought we had this thing. I knew it was going to come down to the last week of the season, and it did. I’m sure thankful that we got it.”

Curtis Gerry of Waterboro, the 2016 Beech Ridge champion and winner of the Oxford 250 last Sunday, finished second in the standings by 47 points unofficially. ... mpionship/
