Love of the game: Cory Creamer takes his drive to Wiscasset Speedway
Randolph racer has done it all at race track on the coast.

...Now, though, Creamer can add the one thing he’s always really wanted on his resume — racing in Saturday night competition at the track. Creamer is running a part-time schedule in Wiscasset’s Super Street division this season, and for someone who grew up playing with matchbox cars in the dirt out behind the grandstands at the .333-mile banked race track, it’s still sinking in.

“I remember watching in the grandstands and saying, ‘Those guys are so fast. I could never imagine competing with them ever,’ ” Creamer said last weekend after finishing ninth, nearly half a lap behind race winner Mark Lucas. “The goal is just to come out here and have fun with it, maybe be the only guy that races that still just has fun with it.”

A DJ by trade whose summers are usually filled with wedding dates and special events where Creamer supplies the party, he’s blocked out three Saturday nights this season for racing his car. Not coincidentally, the car he ended up with came via a trade, where he traded his DJ services at a wedding for a race car. ... -speedway/

Tired out: Nick Jenkins earns Boss Hogg 150 win at Wiscasset Speedway
Apparent winner Garrett Hall DQ'd for unapproved tire.

...Turns out, Jenkins’ premonition was correct and the Brownville driver was credited with the victory early Sunday night after Scarborough’s Garrett Hall was stripped of his apparent win for the use of an unapproved tire during the event. Hall was disqualified, according to track promoter Ken Minott.

“It would have been nice to cross the line first, but we’ll take it,” said Jenkins, whose win was the first of his career in a 150-lap event. “A $5,000 check (for winning)? Yeah, we’re here.”

Hall, who led the final 40 laps following the last restart of the race on lap 111, pitted on lap 94 for two right side tires. As he was battling his way back through the field after the pit stop, Hall was spun by Mike Hopkins while racing for fourth on lap 103 and cut his left rear tire. ... -speedway/

Recap: Erskine back on top at Wiscasset

Veteran Late Model racer Ben Erskine had the skills and proper equipment to win races for years. The easy-going truck driver (he hauls logs, lots of them) from Farmington endured a two-year drought at Wiscasset, but on Saturday night, that slump finally came to an end.

Erskine edged third-generation racer Ryan St. Clair by just 0.232 seconds to claim the 35-lap feature and get back to Victory Lane. Josh St. Clair finished a close third, while Sidney-based hotshoe Chris Thorne crossed the line in fourth. Brandon Bailey, of Woolwich, completed the Late Model top five.

Jimmy Childs has been on quite a roll in the Outlaw Mini class at Wiscasset. The veteran from Leeds almost had his third consecutive feature win on Saturday, yet thanks to a transponder mounted just off from its usual location, missed it by 0.033 seconds to winner and point leader Brent Roy. ... ee/2175049

Picard prevails in Pro Stock at Wiscasset

In the premier Pro Stock division down at Richard and Vanessa Jordan's beautiful Wiscasset Speedway, the competition is usually pretty tight. Often, it's tenths of a second that separates winners from second place on back.

Ajay Picard decided to end that streak of close finishes, blistering the field to win by over seven seconds on Saturday evening. Picard, of Palmyra, checked out as veteran Daren Ripley settled for a distant second. Newcastle's Charlie Colby finished third, over eight seconds behind the leaders. ... rd/2177999
