Central Mainers took the top three spots in the Outlaw Mini 25-lap feature during a full Saturday night of racing at Wiscasset Speedway.

Skowhegan’s Mike Mason started at the back of the pack, but moved into third and then second place on the second lap. Mason passed Jimmy Childs of Leeds to take first place on lap five. One lap later, Childs and Greene’s George Fortin had a scrape-up and were both knocked out of the race.

Mason held the lead the rest of the way, while Farmingdale’s Tim Collins took second place. Chris Morris of Poland made a late move into third, but Richmond’s Nate Tribbet overtook him on lap 22 to reclaim third.

In the 25-lap Super Stock race, Adam Chadbourne edged James Osmond by about one second. After Chadbourne failed the post-race inspection, Osmond was declared the winner, with Bobby Mesimer in second.

The New England 4-Cylinder Pro Stock race got off to an exciting start, as several cars spun on the track during the first lap. In the end, Tim Jeski of Dracut, Mass. held off Windham’s Dave Patten. It was Jeski’s second win at Wiscasset this year.

Richmond’s Leandra Martin had the pole position in the 25-lap Thunder 4 race, but Martin had to settle for ninth place. Kevin Sherman earned the win and Jeff Herbert survived a bump with Vassalboro’s Kalib Bernatchez to take second place. Kyle Hewins of Leeds outlasted Richmond’s Cody Tribbet for third place.

In the 30-lap Pro Stock race, Bill Penfold’s No. 0 car matched his number of wins at Wiscasset this season — until Saturday. Penfold zoomed away for the lead on the first lap and kept it the rest of the race. Casey Nash of Richmond placed second, and Jeff Burgess of East Madison was third.

Wiscasset will return to its regular schedule on July 27.

Beech Ridge Motor Speedway

Newcastle’s Charlie Colby was the only driver to win two races in the NASCAR Pro Series at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway last year. Colby earned his first win in the NASCAR Nite Pro Series by taking Saturday’s 40-lap feature.

Gorham’s Sulo Burbank led from the first lap to lap five, but Colby passed him on the frontstretch and increased his lead after a caution on lap 10.

Saco’s Steve Carrier came in second, while Bill Rodgers of Old Orchard Beach took third.

American-Canadian Tour

Rookie Bobby Therrien led for 148 of the 150 laps to secure the victory on Saturday at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, N.H.

After a caution on lap 44, Therrien and eventual runner-up Brock Davis separated themselves from the rest of the field. They led by nearly two turns over the final 106 laps, and points leader Wayne Helliwell, Jr., had to be content with third place.

The ACT International 500 is Sunday at Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, N.Y. Total purses for the race are over $140,000.
