Stoehr, Locke Shine in NEMA's
Boston Louie at Seekonk
For the past 20 years, the race held in honor of the Massachusetts based car owner - "Boston Louie" Seymour, who campaigned his winning midgets, sprints and Silver Crown cars across America, has brought together the very best in open wheel Midget racing. This past Wednesday at Seekonk Speedway was no different as Avery Stoehr fought off the NEMA field to take down his first Boston Louie Memorial victory.

On March 25, 2017, the most accomplished pavement open wheel racer in America , Dave Steele of Tampa Fl. passed away at Desoto Speedway in Bradenton while attempting to win his 100th sprint car race in the state of Florida. The NEMA Lites portion of the show has since been dedicated in honor of Steele, this year with the young Ryan Locke besting a star studded field, including Ken Schrader, in the 50 lap event.

In the NEMA portion of the event, Paul Scally took down the fast time of the day in his qualifier, after struggling with mechanical issues during the day. Scally also won the qualifier, and also took down the perseverance award for the evening.

In the NEMA feature, Doug Cleveland and Danny Cugini led the field to the green flag. Unfortunately, Cugini's evening would come to an end on lap one as his engine expired. When the green flag flew, young Avery Stoehr in the Bertrand 39 blasted around the outside of the field and into the lead. Stoehr began setting a torrid pace, until the caution flew on lap twelve.

When the field lined up for the green flag, Stoehr would pull away from John Zych, who had made his way to second at the time. Stoehr's march continued, as he clicked off six laps in the 11.1 range, running the fastest time of the day on lap fifteen, a blistering 11.10 second lap.

As the laps wound down, Stoehr extended his lead and would go on to take down the victory, and the sixth Boston Louie win for Bertrand Motorsports in the last seven events. Zych would finish second followed by Randy Cabral. Stoehr's victory also puts him into the points lead. Todd Bertrand was fourth followed by Doug Coby, Paul Scally, Doug Cleveland, Matt O'Brien, Andy Lunt, and Lanson Fornoro. Cabral was the hard charger in the NEMA feature and Stoehr led the most laps.

"This is the biggest win of my career," said Stoehr. "To win the Boston Louie is a dream for all NEMA racers, and I've been in victory lane before with my Dad. To do it myself, is just awesome. I need to thank Tim, Gil, Cara, Curt, Dave, Kayla, Norah, Jon, my Dad and the entire team for getting us here," said Stoehr.

In the Lites portion of the show, Randy Cabral took down the fast time portion of the event in qualifying, sponsored by iRacing. In the qualifiers, Ben Mikitarian and Jim Cataldo took down the wins, sponsored by Valeri Construction and Mike & Lu Jarrett.

In the feature event, young Jake Trainor jumped out into the lead from his pole starting position. Trainor was quickly pursued by Anthony Marvuglio in the Cabral #35 machine. Trainor and Marvuglo have been some of the stars in the early portion of the Lites season, running 1/3 in points thus far.

As the feature rolled on, young Ryan Locke was working his way through the field. Locke was sitting in third by lap twelve, and then would pass Marvuglio for second on lap thirteen. Behind Locke, Trainor and Marvuglio, seventh place starter and former NASCAR star, Kenny Schrader, was working his way through the field along with Randy Cabral.

As the laps wound down, Locke would make his bid for the lead against Trainor on lap 39. From there, Locke would pour on the heat, running the fastest lap of the feature and of the day on lap 42, a blistering 11.768 second lap, one of the quickest in recent years in the Memorial event.

Locke would go on to pull off the victory over Trainor, Marvuglio, Schrader, Cabral, up and comer Dominic Elicone, Matt Janisch, Alan Chambers, Jim Cataldo and Riche Coy.

"We started 6th which we pulled from the redraw. We had no real strategy other than take my time and keep the car under me for the first 30-35 laps and save the tires," said Locke. "I knew we had a good chance right from the drop of the green, as I was able to go three wide and the car stuck. I can't thank everyone enough who helps me - Locke Crane, Shawmut Equipment, Chester General Store, along with my parents, family and grand parents," concluded Locke.

The hard charger was Riche Coy, Long Distance awards went to Calvin Carrol and Matt Janisch, and the top father and son team went to Jeff & Ryan Locke.
