Rookie Chip Grenier with win #2 of 2007
“This night always bit us when we raced in the Tiger Sportsman division,” said Grenier in victory lane. “So many times we came into the double-points race in contention for the championship and left outside the Top 10. This year we came in inside the Top 10 and capitalized with a win.”
Grenier was quick to credit his spotter, Keith Williams, in keeping his focus.
“I kept asking Keith, ‘Is Jamie (Fisher) back there?’” Grenier explained. “Keith just said ‘No names, no numbers, we’re here to do a job and win the race.’ It was what I needed to win.”
Eric Williams of Hyde Park crossed the finish line in second place after a spirited battle with Fisher, but was penalized one lap for running an unapproved tire. The tire on Williams’ car was purchased at an event at Oxford Plains (ME) Speedway one week ago. While the tire was unaltered, it was not approved for competition at the Times Argus Mid-Season Championship. Williams was officially moved to 20th position, the first car off the lead lap. Fisher inherited the runner-up position. Phil Scott of Middlesex, Cris Michaud of Williamstown, Joey Becker of Jeffersonville rounded out the top five finishers. Dennis Demers, Trampas Demers, Dave Pembroke, Rich Lowrey, and Jerry Lesage completed the top ten in order.
