Andy Santerre, drivers coming to Speedway 95 July 12

Posted June 22, 2012, at 3:55 p.m.

Cherryfield’s Andy Santerre, the competition director for Hattori Racing in the K and N Pro Series East tour, and his two drivers, Brett Mofitt and Sergio Pena, will be making an appearance at Hermon’s Speedway 95 for the Ikey Dorr Memorial Race on Thursday, July 12.

Santerre and the drivers will be coming up on Wednesday morning and leaving Friday morning.

Kim Allen, office manager and head scorer at 95, said they are hoping Santerre and at least one of his drivers will run the Street feature.

Allen said Speedway 95 promoter Chuck Hall, a close friend of Santerre’s and Dorr’s, was instrumental in landing the appearance.

Dorr died of a heart attack while racing at Speedway 95 in 2009.

Moffitt is currently running fourth in the K and N Pro Series East tour thanks to a win and four top-five finishes in six races while Pena is 10th with three top-ten finishes.

They will race again on Saturday night in the VisitHamptonVa 175 at Langley Speedway.

Theriault back in ACT

Fort Kent’s Austin Theriault will return to the American-Canadian Tour on Saturday for the White Mountain 150 at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, N.H.

It is the first ACT Late Model race since May 20 when he finished fifth at the Armed Forces Day 150 at Oxford Plains Speedway.

But Theriault hasn’t been idle.

In fact, he raced in the Rowdy 251 Super Late Model race at Berlin Raceway in Marne, Mich., on Tuesday night.

He was driving for Brad Keselowski Racing and finished 13th among 30 cars after starting the race 20th.

NASCAR Sprint Cup star Kyle Busch won the race with Chase Elliott finishing second. Elliott is the son of 1988 Sprint Cup points champion and Motorsports Hall of Famer Bill Elliott.

Theriault is currently fourth in the ACT points, 19 points behind leader Wayne Helliwell Jr.

The recent Fort Kent High School graduate has three top-five finishes in four races.

There are two other Maine drivers in the top 10 as Pittston’s Ben Ashline is seventh with 283 points and Albany Township’s Ricky Rolfe is eighth with 273 points.

Little Enduro pot sweetened

Speedway 95 owner Del Merritt is sweetening the pot for next week’s Little Enduro feature at Wacky Wednesday.

It will be a 50-lap race and the winner will receive $500.

Normally, the winner receives $75.

There will also be a second Little Enduro feature on the full race card and it will be a 20-lapper with the cars going clockwise for 10 laps and counterclockwise for the other 10. However, there must be at least 10 cars and the drivers must be willing to go in both directions.

The grandstand admission will be $5 for adults and racing will begin at 7 p.m. Bike races for kids up to 12 years old will precede the racing at 6:30 p.m.
