Epping, NH - Rookie 350 Super racer Steve Duphily scored his first career win in Saturday night’s main event at the storied Star Speedway, adding his name to the short list of 2015 winners in the headline division when the checkers waved.
Duphily, who is the grandson of legendary Supermodified car owner/fabricator Vic Miller, made his first foray into full-size racing this year, jumping right into the highly-competitive ranks of the Star 350 Supers, and he has shown steady improvement since the start of the season.
The youngster jumped out to the lead at the drop of the green flag on Saturday, and he never looked back, running off to lead them across the stripe at the race’s conclusion. John Burke of Derry was next in the finishing order, followed by points leader and four-time feature winner Mike Netishen of Auburn, Sparky MacIver of Sandown, and Billy Osborne of Plaistow.
“Rocket Rob” MacRae of Billerica, MA closed the gap just a bit on Outlaw Late Model points leader Barry Raymond of Sandown with his third trip of the season to Star’s victory lane, once again dominating the Outlaw feature race to claim the win.
Manchester’s Scotty Duval was out front in the early going, but he couldn’t hold back the hard-charging MacRae, who made his way past and began to pull away from the field. Duval had his best run of the year until the late laps, when he dropped off the pace and headed to the pits.
Heat race winner Steve “Pinball” Wilmot had another strong outing that netted him a podium finish, taking second place honors behind winner MacRae. Points leader Raymond moved up late to claim third at the finish, with Joey Ventrillo of Methuen, MA and former champ Rob Bolduc of Plaistow finishing up the top five.
Longtime competitor Russ Douphinette of Groveland, MA came out of semi-retirement and sat in for his nephew Steve for the night, and did the defending champion proud, running the family machine to an impressive win in the Strictly Stock main event.
Mark Parenteau made it a one-two sweep for the Grovelanders, chasing Douphinette across the line in the second spot in one of his rare 2015 appearances. John Cashman of Danvers, MA took home third place honors, with Mike Scott and points leader Mike Williams of Epsom closing out the top five.
Third-generation racer “Mad Max” Dolliver made it back-to-back wins and four on the season in the Roadrunner feature event, using a bold three-wide move to get to the front, and staying there until the checkers waved to roll into victory lane once again.
Points leader Justin Storace grabbed the runner-up finish, followed by Kody Parker, Melinda McCarthy, Andrew Gillis, Bobbo Williams, P.J. Hurteau, Harry Robinson, Jef James, and Tyler Chase.
Epping, NH - With rain showers dampening outdoor activities everywhere within just a few miles of the famed ¼ mile track and shortening up the night‘s practice rounds, Star Speedway’s crack staff still managed to get the speedway surface dry and squeeze in the entire race program on Saturday night.
This week’s special event featured the restored racers of the Vintage Outlaw club, with Art Chartier picking up his third Star Speedway checkered flag of the season at the end of the 25-lap main. Chartier continued his impressive summer campaign, scoring his second Vintage Outlaw win to go along with another he collected racing with the Maine-based Wicked Good Vintage club, making him a perfect three-for-three in 2015 at Star.
Mike Netishen of Auburn picked up his fourth win of the season and solidified his points lead in the 350 Super main event, holding off a determined Mark “Sparky” MacIver of Sandown to make yet another trip to victory lane aboard the point standings-leading Sno Bandit, Phantom Fireworks, L & W Auto Repair, Serenity Landscaping-sponsored machine with just two races remaining in the 2015 points chase.
John Burke of Derry was first out of the gate to set the early pace, pulling away to an impressive lead in his new machine before apparent overheating issues sent him to the pits and out of contention. Netishen and MacIver moved out front to settle the issue when racing resumed, with Netishen comfortably taking down the win.
MacIver and his patented one-handed driving style fell a bit further behind in the championship chase with the runner-up finish, followed by third-generation racer Billy Osborne, who picked up his best finish of the year to round out the podium.
Osborne was fresh off his second career win in the 13th annual Don Hayes Memorial for Roadrunners at Star’s sister track, the historic Hudson International Speedway the previous Sunday, and was more than pleased with his first 2015 podium in the 350‘s. John Leonard and rookie Steve Douphily rounded out the top five.
Points leader Mike Williams of Epsom scored his third win of the season in the Strictly Stock main event, outrunning Danvers, MA racer John Cashman, Mike Scott, Bret Culleton of Pelham, and Tim Boyle of Barrington.
Third-generation racer Max Dolliver put in an impressive run to collect his third win of the year in the Roadrunner main, outrunning Bobbo Williams, points leader Justin Storace, rookie competitor Josh Demers, and two-time winner Kody Parker to collect the checkers.
Epping, NH - The Mr. Rooter New England Truck Series made their second appearance of the 2015 season at the historic Star Speedway on Saturday night, with Roger Turbush of Riverhead, NY taking home the checkered flag.
Frank Dumicich, Sr. of East Quoque, NY took the early lead in the main event, but he was quickly overhauled by son Frank, Jr., the winner the last time the series invaded the fast ¼ mile. Turbush was on the prowl however, and he quickly disposed of the Dumicich machines to make his way to the head of the field.
At the checkers, it was Turbush rolling into victory lane for his fifth win of the 2015 campaign, with Dumicich, Jr., and Sr. rounding out the podium in second and third. Josh Stringer of East Killingly, CT and Tyler Chapman of Mystic, CT rounded out the top five.
Mark “Sparky“ MacIver of Sandown took an impressive win in the 350 Supers, holding off a determined Mike Netishen of Auburn to post the victory. Nottingham’s Brandee Tree won her heat race and set the pace for the first several laps, when Netishen and MacIver took her three-wide on the backstretch to get past.
Netishen moved out to the lead for a couple of laps, but MacIver dug deep and eventually made his way past the points leader to earn win number three on the season aboard the Bob Chabot machine. Netishen took runner-up honors, with veteran John Leonard third followed by John Burke of Derry and former Roadrunner champ Billy Osborne of Kingston.
Strictly Stock veteran John Cashman of Danvers, MA made his second 2015 trip to victory lane, outrunning Epsom’s Mike Williams and Bret Culleton of Pelham. Defending champ Steve Douphinette of Raymond and rookie Mike Scott rounded out the top five.

The Mr. Rooter New England Truck Series was the added attraction at the famed Star Speedway on Saturday night, and some of the more unfortunate truckers quickly learned just how hard it is to get a handle on the tricky quarter-mile oval.
Less than a lap after going green for their 25-lap main event, three-wide action resulted in a wild skirmish that sent fifth-place points man Josh Stringer nearly head-on into the front stretch wall, quickly bringing the action to a halt while the track crew attended to the trucks and drivers involved.
When racing resumed, Frank Dumicich, Jr. of East Quoque, NY took up the lead, and he went the distance to collect the checkers and his first win on the series in 2015. Dumicich came into the event with the point lead and four runner-up finishes in the series’ first six races, but this was his first 2015 trip to victory lane.
Dumicich’s win kept him atop the series standings, with four-time winner Roger Turbush of Riverhead, NY posting a strong runner-up finish right on his back bumper and moving to second in the season tally. Frank Dumicich, Sr of E. Quoque, NY took third, with Bert Oullette of Ellington, CT and Erin Solomito-Dumicich of E. Quoque rounding out the top five.
“Rocket Rob” MacRae of Billerica, MA scored his second win of the 2015 season in the Outlaw Sportsman main event, outrunning polesitter Scotty Duval of Manchester to grab the lead, and pulling away from the field over the balance of the non-stop green-to-checker event to post an impressive win.
Second-generation racer Erick Sands came on strong late in the race to collect runner-up honors, with two-time winner Barry Raymond of Sandown posting third. Fourth went to Joey “The Jet” Ventrillo of Methuen, MA, a winner in the previous feature event, with George Maroun closing out the top five.
Rookie Strictly Stock competitor Austin Erickson made it two-straight wins in the 25-lap feature event, outrunning several seasoned veterans to collect the checkers. Epsom’s Mike Williams was second, with defending champ Steve Douphinette of Raymond, Bret Culleton of Pelham, and John Cashman of Danvers, MA rounding out the top five.
Justin Storace picked up win number five on the season aboard the JR Fillipone VW in the Roadrunner main event, outrunning third-generation racer “Mad Max” Dolliver, Jarrod Soucy, early leader Jef James, and Melinda McCarthy in the feature race.
Epping, NH - Despite Mother Nature’s best efforts to slow the action at Star Speedway on Saturday night, track crews waited out the rain and got the racing program into the record books for the tenth straight week despite the late start due to track-drying efforts.
Joey “The Jet” Ventrillo picked up his first win of the season in convincing fashion in the Outlaw Late Model main, holding off teammate and multi-time track champ Ron Bolduc of Plaistow to score the win. Barry Raymond of Sandown, winner of two straight feature events coming into the night, took home third place honors.
Bruce Harrison of Hudson took his second Star win of the year in the V-6 Modified feature, with former champ Keith Caruso and Allan Rieser, Jr. rounding out the podium.

Epping, NH - 18-year-old Hudson, NH ace Derek Griffith put in a dominating performance to capture the win in the “Star 100” event for the Granite State Pro Stock Series at Star Speedway on Saturday night , running away from the field to score his third win on the series this season, maintaining the top spot in the series point standings.
With threatening weather in the forecast, track officials were in hurry-up mode from the drop of the first green flag, but every feature made it into the record books before the rains moved in.
Sparky MacIver scored his second win of the year in the 350 Supermodified main, Bret Culleton topped the Strictly Stocks for his first 2015 win aboard the Mike White entry ,and Melinda McCarthy took home her first-ever win at Star, taking the Roadrunner checkers on Saturday night at the famed Epping oval.
Griffith outran polesitter Mike Parks to grab the lead early in the 100-lap run, and with few cautions to slow the pace, he ran off to collect the checkers in convincing fashion, with Parks, Dillon Moltz, Babe Branscombe, and Joe Squeglia the rest of the top five.
Rookie Stephen Duphily lead the early going in the 350 Super main, with veteran John Leonard pressuring for the lead closing on halfway. The lead duo made contact on lap 14 coming off turn two, with Leonard sliding off the track and flipping over, just missing the backstretch tire barrier.
Sparky MacIver got past Duphily shortly after the restart, and he held off a strong challenge from two-time winner Mike Netishen to score the victory. Netishen, Rookie of the Year contender Jarrod Soucy, Duphily, Billy Osborne, Brandee Tree, and John Burke were next across the stripe.

Fourth went to Bob Williams, followed by Jef James, Jason Plouffe, the 7P, Paul Wainwright, Josh Demers, and Max Chaput.
Epping, NH - Rookie driver Jarrod Soucy became the fourth different winner of the 2015 season in the 350 Supermodifieds at Star Speedway, holding off veteran Sparky MacIver and two-time winner Mike Netishen to collect the checkered flag in just his fourth start aboard a Supermodified.
Billy Osborne of Plaistow and Soucy took the checkers in the MacLellan Metal Finishing dashes to start the night’s action, but at feature time, it was all Soucy. The teenaged rookie sensation jumped to the lead when flagman Mike Walker let them loose, and he went the distance to score the win.
An early-race incident sent John Leonard and Scott Bourn pitside with serious enough damage to end their nights, with Soucy picking up the lead when racing action resumed. Another late-race caution brought Soucy back to the field and into the clutches of MacIver, but the youngster held him off to collect the win.
MacIver settled for runner-up honors in the Bob Chabot ride, with two-time winner Mike Netishen, Osborne, John Burke, Stephen Duphily, Brandee Tree, Bourn, Leonard, and ageless veteran Carl Silva in his familiar #7a credited with the top ten finishes.
Manchester’s Scotty Duval and Erick Sands grabbed the wins in the Tyngsboro Motors dashes for the Outlaw Late Models, but for the second straight week, Sandown’s Barry Raymond took advantage of a last-lap pass to collect the win in the Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy-sponsored Outlaw main event.
This time Raymond’s victim was Billy Ryder in his sharp Dodge Challenger-bodied machine, who inherited the lead when Scotty Duval went for a wild mid-race spin on the front straightaway. Ryder held serve until the last half-lap, when Raymond got underneath and snatched away the lead with the checkers in sight.
Raymond made it two straight by less than a half car length, with Ryder taking an impressive but disappointing runner-up finish. Ron Bolduc came back from early-race problems to finish third in the Joey Ventrillo machine, followed by Duval, George Maroun, Erick Sands, Frank Mirabito, “Three Wide“ Chuck Dehney, Chris Jacobson, and Rob MacRae.
Defending champ Steve Douphinette scored his second win of the year in the Strictly Stocks, continuing the “wreckers or checkers“ roller coaster ride that has been his 2015 season. Douphinette held off a persistent John Cashman for the win followed by Austin Erickson, Tim Boyle, Mike Williams, Jason Ryan, Mark Parenteau, Bret Culleton, and Bobby Bouchard.
Groundskeepers of the entryway to the speedway, Granite Coast Landcare sponsored a special event for the Roadrunners, with Bob Williams recovering from an early-race tangle to score the 25-lap win to collect the trophy and bonus money presented by Granite Coast‘s Ben Brown.
Melinda McCarthy battled door handle to door handle with two-time winner “Mad Max” Dolliver for several laps before prevailing for runner-up honors, with Jef James, Kody Parker, Paul Wainwright, Seffen Tene, Billy McCarthy, Jason Plouffe, Josh Demers, and Tyler Chase the rest of the top ten.
The Senior Tour Auto Racers (STAR) joined the weekly regulars for the night’s action, with Alan Zemla taking the win in Sportsman action, while Bob Donahue picked up the Modified checkers.
Epping, NH - Sparky MacIver of Sandown became the third different winner of the 2015 season in the 350 Supermodifieds at Star Speedway, holding off two-time winner Mike Netishen to collect the checkered flag aboard the Bob Chabot entry.
Compact Equipment Services had bonus money on the line for the night’s event, and MacIver was on a mission to get it, moving past rookie competitor Jarrod Soucy on lap six to take command of the event. Sparky was well on his way to victory in the 35-lap main when Billy Osborne suffered a mechanical failure on lap 27, bringing caution on the field, and MacIver back to the competition.
Netishen got a great lump and nearly moved past to grab the lead on the restart, but MacIver battled back and eventually regained the advantage, which he held to the checkers to score the win. Netishen, John Leonard, John Burke, and Soucy rounded out the top five.
Sandown’s Barry Raymond also collected his first win of the season in the Outlaw Late Model main, but his win came in much more dramatic fashion. Steve “Pinball” Wilmot had been in control after taking the lead from George Maroun on lap 14, and looked to be headed to victory with the laps winding down.
But Raymond moved to the outside with time running out, and inched ahead at the white flag. The final lap saw a wild scramble that ended when Wilmot spin in turn four, with Raymond holding his line and flashing under the checkers to collect his first win of the 2015 season.
Multi-time track champion Ron Bolduc of Plaistow followed up his win from the previous week with a strong second place run, followed by Erick Sands, “Rocket Rob” MacRae of Billerica, MA, Joey Ventrillo, Maroun, Scotty Duval of Manchester, Wilmot, and Chris Jacobson.
Second-generation racer Anthony Belfiore of Haverhill, MA quickly ran the outside groove to grab the lead in the Strictly Stock feature, and he went the distance to pick up his first-ever Star checkered flag. John Cashman collected runner-up honors, with Mike Williams of Epsom , Mike Scott, Pelham’s Bret Culleton, Ed Kingsley, Steve Douphinette of Raymond, and Sammy Peabody next in the finishing order.
“Mad Max” Dolliver wasted little time in making a return to victory lane after his first career win two weeks ago in the Roadrunner main, holding off four-time winner Justin Storace to make the return trip to the winner’s circle.
Jef James took third place honors, with Melinda McCarthy, Kody Parker, Brian Healey, Jr., Jason Plouffe, Josh Demers, Leon Keniston, and Ken McIlvaine rounding out the top ten.
Epping, NH - The Wicked Cool Midget Series rolled into town for their second appearance of the 2015 season at Star Speedway on Saturday night, with local driver P.J. Stergios of Candia dominating the action to score the win in the 25-lap main event.
Once Stergios got to the front, he immediately began to open up a several car length lead, and he ran virtually uncontested to the finish to pick up the win. Dylan Duhaime, who won the first time the Wicked Cool Midgets invaded the Epping oval this year, finished in the second spot, with Richie Morrocco closing out the podium in third.
Former track champion Ron Bolduc of Plaistow returned to his winning ways in the Outlaw Late Model main event, moving up quickly from third on the grid to take over the lead. Once out front, Bolduc was on a mission, and he easily led the balance of the event to post his first win of the 2015 season.
Joey “The Jet“ Ventrillo took a hard-earned second place finish, with Erick Sands coming home third after a night that included a quick trip back to the shop to make repairs after finding trouble in practice. Billy Ryder was fourth in his season debut, with “Rocket Rob” MacRae, Barry Raymond, Sandy Lee, Chuck Dehney, Frank Mirabito, and Scotty Duval the rest of the top ten.
Bret Culleton set the pace for the first half of the Strictly Stock feature, but he eventually lost the top spot to Mike Scott, who went on to collect his first checkered flag of the year. Jason Ryan got a career-best runner-up result, with Culleton, Mike Williams, and Tim Boyle finishing up the top five.
Defending Strictly Stock champ Steve Douphinette was eliminated in a hard crash that ripped the rear end right out of his racer as he collided with a spinning John Cashman. Neither driver was injured in the incident, and Cashman continued on continued on the finish just outside the top five ahead of Sammy Peabody and Jerry Lepage.
Justin Storace made it four wins on the year in the Roadrunner main event, giving car owner J.R. Fillipone a birthday present to remember. Third-generation racer Melinda McCarthy nipped Kdoy Parker at the line to score a second place finish, with Max Dolliver, Jarrod Soucy, Billy McCarthy, Jim Deveau, Brian Healey, Jr., Jef James, and Paul Wainwright filling out the top ten.
“Hollywood” Dave Helliwell made it back-to-back wins in the Northeast Classic Lites feature event, outrunning Duane Skofield, Eric Skofield, Eddie Gilman, Dan Poliquin, Chris Sullivan, Tom Harton, Kevin Merrifield, Jake Cray, and Joe Janeiro.
