Junior competitors should mark their calendar for the weekend of October 25 - 26. As part of the annual Junior Halloween Weekend the event will feature a Buddy Scurto Memorial race. There will be a second time trial bogie race and first round runner-ups can enter a special consolation race. Additional prizes will be awarded for Best Halloween Themed Crew, and Best Decorated Golf Cart.
Sunday’s racing will feature three indexes; 12.90, 8.90 and 7.90. “Stephanie Correia does a great job with the junior program. But, I’m even more impressed with her efforts to remember Buddy and all he did for the racers at New England Dragway,” said Joe Lombardo.
This year’s Buddy Scurto King of the Hill Memorial Race was a fitting tribute to the man who truly loved the sport of drag racing. In the electronics category Scott Menard powered his way through the field to set up one side of the final pairing, while Don Pires, Jr., emerged as the top gun in the non-electronics class. During the runoff Menard overcame a hole shot deficit to run on his number for the win over Pires.

To find the future stars of both the NHRA and New England Dragway, there is no need to look any further than the Junior Dragster ranks, where each young driver learns the basics of drag racing as well as the tricks to turn on the win lights. Over the weekend of August 8-10, 2014 NHRA Division 1 held the Junior Dragster Divisional race that saw hundreds of Junior Dragster racers face off for the top spot in each age group, as well as the Race of Champions, and Spirit award.
A total of 11 racers along with their families traveled to Numidia Dragway in Numidia, Pennsylvania to race as a team under the New England Dragway name, battling eleven other northeast tracks. The racing began mid-week with a Gamblers race which found New England racer Cam Murray as a runner-up. On Friday, Mary Sparago represented the track in the Race of Champions. After winning the first round, she lost to eventual winner, Wade Kubicke of Atco Raceway.
The main event was for the Division title in each age group (8-9 years old, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15, and 16+). Out of the 11 racers that represented New England Dragway, 8 found themselves making it through the first round; Steven Knight, Olivia Karaguezian, Kristen Tavares, Jackson Worters, Mary and Julia Sparago, also Cam and Kyle Murray. The 16+ age group found an all New England final between Jackson Worters and Cam Murray, with Murray taking the win and division title.
Out of the 12 tracks competing New England had a great showing, finishing third overall. But it wasn’t all about the action on the track as the teams also competed for the Spirit Award throughout the weekend. New England chose a “pirate theme” and decorated not only the stands, but the staging lanes, golf carts, and everyone was dressed as pirates on Saturday to earn the Team Spirit Award for the division. These young drivers are passionate about racing and prove they are ones to watch now as well as when they jump into full sized cars down the road.
Attention NEDX275 racers and fans, the race scheduled for October 4, 2014 has been rescheduled to October 25, 2014. Please adjust your schedules and plans as needed to catch the last NEDX275 race of the season.
