Bailey scores first 51 Late Model win; Moodie tops Tigers

Fifteen-year-old Reilly Lanphear put an exclamation point on Kid’s Night at Speedway 51 on Saturday.

The Duxbury, Vt., youngster claimed her first career Bond Auto Street Stock feature win in their 20-lap event. Lanphear led flag-to-flag and was forced to hold off veteran driver Jean LeBlanc in the closing stages of the race.

LeBlanc, of Gorham, N.H., settled for second with reigning Street Stock champion Nick Gilcris of Groveton, N.H. third. Greg Adams Jr. and Thomas Merchant completed the top-five finishers, while Jason Kenison, Jaden Perry, Jamon Perry, Cody Smith, and Stephen Martin finished sixth through tenth, unofficially.

Mike Bailey collected his first checkered flag under the Speedway 51 banner in the three-segment North Country Ford Late Model event.

The South Barre, Vt., driver was a long-time Riverside Speedway driver and has made multiple appearances in 2015. Bailey combined a fourth place finish in the first 20-lap segment with two wins in the following segments to score the low point total of six.

Mike Kenison of Groveton, N.H. finished second overall, one spot ahead of point leader Jeff Marshall of Lunenburg, Vt. Segment one winner Shawn Swallow of Stark, N.H. finished fourth overall with Jason Woodard of Waterbury Center fifth.

Brendan Moodie of Wolcott, Vt. earned the win in the three-segment Sign Depot Tiger Sportsman event. Moodie ran to the front in all three of the segments in sweeping fashion to score the lowest possible point total -- three.

Mike Martin of Craftsbury, Vt. finished second overall with Travis Calkins of Danville, Vt. third. Cody LeBlanc and Stephen Donahue completed the top-five finishers.

Stephen Martin of Craftsbury, Vt. made a late race pass to earn the win in the AB Excavating Dare Devil feature. Chrisitan Laflamme of Whitefield, N.H. settled for second with Peyton Lanphear, Garrett Labounty, and Josh Plumley completing the top-five finishers.

Jamie Swallow Jr. of Stark, N.H. earned the win in the Schewppes Pure Stock feature after a late race pass over Epping, N.H. driver Mike O’Connor. Kevin Keene finished third.

Speedway 51 returns to action on Saturday, September 12 with a regularly scheduled event. Speedway 51’s five divisions will be joined by the NEAR Antique racers. Post time is set for 5:30pm.
