MAURICE YOUNG WINS 3RD ANNUAL IKEY DORR MEMORIAL AT 95
Maurice Young of Windsor started on the pole for the 50 lap Ikey Dorr Memorial Street Stock race at Speedway 95 Thursday night and it looked like an easy win for the visitor from Unity Raceway as he easily distanced himself from the field until the caution flag closed the field. A collision with Carl McAlpine of Burnham following a lap 29 restart spun them both out on the front stretch while fighting for the lead. Young and McAlpine were both sent to the rear of the field for the restart, and when the green flag waved, Young pointed his car toward the front and wheeled it through the field, taking the lead from Zach Audet of Skowhegan half way through lap 48 and leading the final lap and a half to post the win. Audet finished second with Burnham’s Chris King finishing third. Andy Turbovsky of Winslow finished fourth on the track, but was disqualified in post race inspection for an illegal camshaft. Ryan Robinson of Clinton was moved up to fourth with Carl McAlpine of Burnham awarded fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Zach Emerson of Sabattus in sixth, Hermon’s Bernie Thayer seventh, Jordan Pearson of Levant in eighth, Jim Robichaud of Orrington in ninth and Jim Bragdon of Corinth in tenth. 22 cars started the event, held in memory of Ikey Dorr of Addison, a former racer at Speedway 95 who died of a heart attack while racing on June 6, 2009, and for the benefit of Wreaths Across America.
