After an opening day less to Hardwick 9-8, the Triangle All Stars came back to defeat host Newport 8-7 in nine innings to stay alive in the double elimination tournament. Against Hardwick, the locals had a seemingly in- surmountable 8-2 lead going to the final two innings, but defensive lapses opened the flood gates for six unearned runs for the Hardwick squad. John Dwyer hit in the winning run against Newport, dropping the host team from the tournament. Dwyer's solid single drove in Andy Thibault from third with the deciding run. Thibault had worked the Newport pitcher for a walk, stole second and reached third on a passed ball. Winning pitcher, in relief, was Brad Hodge. Doug Urqubart led all hitters with three singles. Legal in street division and illegal in coupes BRADFORD-- A con- troversial night of racing ended in two Triple Crowns being awarded at the "Home of the Coupes" at Bear Ridge Speedway. The street division winner was Duncan McKay (18- Barrel after a rule hook teardown paid for b the team of Thomas Spooner (0t-W. Topsham). The Spooner team put up the required $110 to see the "heads" off the McKay engine, removal of the intake and exhaust headers, checking the lifters, and, the flywheel removed and weighed. The Spooner team felt that the McKay car was illegal, according to the rule book, and paid to enforce it. The McKay car was declared "legal" by track technicians and McKay was able to keep the teardown money. He also won his qualifier, the semi-feature race, and ultimately the feature event, which made him a Triple Crown winner. Aside from the legal tangles of last Friday night's schedule, there were many other tangles that came from a hard, fast track and corn- --Triple Crowns LOSES CONTROL-- Bob Shepard (Number 28) lost control of his race car and slammed into the bank, The momentum carried him onto the other side. feature, replaced a complete front end and coil-over springs in time for the feature.

Dan Beede dominated the CLOSE QUARTERS AT THE RIDGE-- These street oval during the latter stages of division competitors are about ready to take the the race. However, Eastman checkers for thelrheatrace, was only a few car lengths behind and tried to keep the gap between himself and the leader as close as possible. He crossed the finish line second, with Dale Williams (93-E. Ryegate) in third. Eastman, by virtue of the underweight cars, was declared the winner later in the night. It was a grueling race for tim drivers, and an exciting race for the fans.

Several cars took the "birdman" approach to the banks of the oval, winding up with broken cars and shaken spirits. Hot and heavy racing From the early stages of the qualifying races, through the feature race, the street division drivers were intense with a competitive spirit to win at all costs. Philip McQuin (35-Campton, N.H.) struck it rich in the first heat for the win. Then, Spooner handily won the second heat, with McKay victorious in the third qualifier. The attrition rate in the semi-feature was enormous with only five cars finishing; the rest of the pack put out of action, including Spoouer. McKay won the event with Frank Weigel (23-White River Jct.) crossing the line for a second, and Thomas Forward (73-Lebanon) last week's feature winner, in third. Street Feature Before one lap was com- pleted, the yellow flag was out because three cars bunched up at the front wall, causing a halting of the race. On the restart, and the next ill-fated lap, two incidents on either side of the track again stopped the race. After several more yellows, McKay established his dominance in the race, opening up wide margins between himself and the nearest competitor. He was followed across the finish line by Gene Pierson (44-E. Corinth), Carroll Porter (11- E. Corinth), and Forward. Track crackdown "Brother" Ervine Eastman (l-Thetford) was declared a Triple Crown winner by reason of disqualification of the Dan Beede (53-Barrel car, It was survival of the fittest as Triangle met Lyndonville in the loser's bracket on Friday.

Against Hardwick, the locals had a seemingly in- surmountable 8-2 lead going to the final two innings, but defensive lapses opened the flood gates for six unearned runs for the Hardwick squad. John Dwyer hit in the winning run against Newport, dropping the host team from the tournament. Dwyer's solid single drove in Andy Thibault from third with the deciding run. Thibault had worked the Newport pitcher for a walk, stole second and reached third on a passed ball. Winning pitcher, in relief, was Brad Hodge. Doug Urqubart led all hitters with three singles. Legal in street division and illegal in coupes BRADFORD-- A con- troversial night of racing ended in two Triple Crowns being awarded at the "Home of the Coupes" at Bear Ridge Speedway. The street division winner was Duncan McKay (18- Barrel after a rule hook teardown paid for b the team of Thomas Spooner (0t-W. Topsham). The Spooner team put up the required $110 to see the "heads" off the McKay engine, removal of the intake and exhaust headers, checking the lifters, and, the flywheel removed and weighed. The Spooner team felt that the McKay car was illegal, according to the rule book, and paid to enforce it. The McKay car was declared "legal" by track technicians and McKay was able to keep the teardown money. He also won his qualifier, the semi-feature race, and ultimately the feature event, which made him a Triple Crown winner. Aside from the legal tangles of last Friday night's schedule, there were many other tangles that came from a hard, fast track and corn- --Triple Crowns LOSES CONTROL-- Bob Shepard (Number 28) lost control of his race car and slammed into the bank, The momentum carried him onto the other side. feature, replaced a complete front end and coil-over springs in time for the feature. But he still had some problems and removed himself to the infield after several tight laps and skirmishes on the oval. Frank Keene (96-Chelsea) also had a solid hit to his car on the front straightaway and was hauled off to the pit, and out for the night. Dan Beede dominated the CLOSE QUARTERS AT THE RIDGE-- These street oval during the latter stages of division competitors are about ready to take the the race. However, Eastman checkers for thelrheatrace, was only a few car lengths behind and tried to keep the gap between himself and the leader as close as possible. He crossed the finish line second, with Dale Williams (93-E. Ryegate) in third. Eastman, by virtue of the underweight cars, was declared the winner later in the night. It was a grueling race for tim drivers, and an exciting race for the fans. Next Race Bear Ridge Speedway will host another full card of racing next Friday evening, July 30 at 8 p.m. Also featured will be go-cart racing and the coupe powder puff race. Coming up in two weeks on August 6th is the Gregg Emery Memorial Race.

Several cars took the "birdman" approach to the banks of the oval, winding up with broken cars and shaken spirits. Hot and heavy racing From the early stages of the qualifying races, through the feature race, the street division drivers were intense with a competitive spirit to win at all costs. Philip McQuin (35-Campton, N.H.) struck it rich in the first heat for the win. Then, Spooner handily won the second heat, with McKay victorious in the third qualifier. The attrition rate in the semi-feature was enormous with only five cars finishing; the rest of the pack put out of action, including Spoouer. McKay won the event with Frank Weigel (23-White River Jct.) crossing the line for a second, and Thomas Forward (73-Lebanon) last week's feature winner, in third. Street Feature Before one lap was com- pleted, the yellow flag was out because three cars bunched up at the front wall, causing a halting of the race. On the restart, and the next ill-fated lap, two incidents on either side of the track again stopped the race. After several more yellows, McKay established his dominance in the race, opening up wide margins between himself and the nearest competitor. He was followed across the finish line by Gene Pierson (44-E. Corinth), Carroll Porter (11- E. Corinth), and Forward. Track crackdown "Brother" Ervine Eastman (l-Thetford) was declared a Triple Crown winner by reason of disqualification of the Dan Beede (53-Barrel car, It was survival of the fittest as Triangle met Lyndonville in the loser's bracket on Friday.
