Wiscasset Speedway
Tasha Dyer takes Super Street win


The bright lights of Wiscasset Speedway illuminated the track at the first evening race of the season May 7. Despite the cool weather, fans lined the grandstands to watch group one division racing which included Super Streets, Thunder Four Mini’s, ServePro of Biddeford Saco Prostocks, New England Four Cylinder Prostocks, and the flex race of the week, Wicked Good Vintage Racers.

The spotlighted race of the evening was a 25-lap Super Street presentation. Starting on the pole was the #27 of Barry Poulin. To his right was the #38 of Cody Buzzell. Starting in third was Bernie Dinsmore of the #3. When green flag racing began, Tasha Dyer of the #32 advanced quickly from fifth, passing Dinsmore for third by lap two. Ahead, Poulin was setting a fast pace for the pack, but Buzzell was tailing him looking for his chance to pass. His chance came during lap fifteen when Poulin went high, opening the door for Buzzell. During lap sixteen, Buzzell and Poulin raced head to head, until Buzzell accelerated and passed Poulin on the inside coming out of turn two for the lead. Dyer, sticking close to Buzzell, also passed Poulin for second.

Strictly Streets points leader grabs fourth win of the season

Kurt Hewins of the 55H from Leeds continued his winning streak and solid sportsmanship at Wiscasset Speedway Saturday night, Aug. 20 for Fan Appreciation Night, presented by IGA Food Stores supporting the Dream Ride for Special Olympics. Traveling from cities all over the state, dedicated fans, packing grand stands each week, are the secret ingredient that makes Wiscasset Speedway Maine’s biggest, fastest track year after year.

Starting 3-wide, the Strictly Streets 35-lap spotlight kicked off strong with Kenny Harrison of the #84, who had no trouble taking and holding the lead. Behind Harrison, heavy hitters refused to back down and the competition remained fierce, even after Kimberly Knight in the #00 pulled ahead in lap nine, closely followed by Kurt Hewins in the #55H.

Harrison appeared to have the race locked up until mechanical issues in lap fifteen left Knight and Hewins free to spar over first. Despite some friendly nudges from his position in second, Hewins could not seem to best Knight’s speed through the corners. By lap twenty-one, Hewins had taken a different approach by working the outer lane until he took the lead in lap twenty-four.
