Several local motorsports competitors are in action during this 2022 racing season. The Kuhn family is one of them and is comprised of driver Ryan Kuhn of E. Bridgewater and father Jimmy, Jr. and grandfather Jimmy Sr. both of West Bridgewater as part of his crew.
In a recent Super Late Model race at Seekonk Speedway Ryan came in sixth place. ” We should be in better shape now as we ended up 19th in a PASS Tour race at Oxford, ME. We were involved in a wreck a few weeks ago at Stafford (CT) with just three laps to go. Prior to that we pulled off a sixth place at Thompson (CT) and that a 12th place at New Hampshire Motor Speedway,” said Jimmy Jr. He went on, “We are planning to race at Oxford again today (July 10) and then after that a double header at White Mountain (N. Woodstock, NH) on July 15 and 16th.
Abington’s Nick Lescoula, owner of the Pit Stop garage in that town is a Legends race car dealer. Nick raced Legend race cars from 2011-2015 at Seekonk and several other New England venues. ” I moved up to the Pro Stock/Super Late Models last year. My team will be running in selected PASS Tour and Granite State Pro Stock Series for 10 events. We had some problems at NHMS but ended up 7th. It’s difficult for us to focus on the Pro Stock because we service full time several Legend race cars at the Pit Stop”.
“I’m also thinking about entering the Oxford 250 in late August which will require a lot of time preparing our Pro Stock car to get ready the biggest paying race of the year”.
Brockton competitor Henry Sirignano owns the South Shore Cycle Motor Parts store in Abington. He returned to racing Pro 4 Modifieds last year after a long absence. He had six top fives and three top three’s in 2021. He recently raced at the Star Speedway in Epping NH where he posted a third place. Some eighteen entries were on hand for that event. The Pro 4’s have 12 races on the 2022 schedule. Henry also manages to prepare and change the race tires for Nick Lascoula’s Pro Stock on race days and weekends.
Canton’s Rick Savary has a limited seven race schedule on the Tri Track Open Modified Series. He came out of retirement this year to race for a Connecticut based team owned by Steve Kopcic. His last race was at Seekonk for the Open Wheel Wednesday in late June where he got caught in a late race wreck. He’s planning to race next at Star Speedway on July 23, Waterford Speedbowl in CT on August 4, Stafford in CT on September 28 and the last race at Seekonk Speedway on October 23. In other Tri Track events he ended up 14th at Monadnock Speedway in NH and a 12th at Thunder Road in Vermont. Former Oxford 250 winner Joey Kourafas of Randolph serves as Savary’s crew chief.
