Winchester, NH. – Persistent rain showers with heat and high humidity didn’t stop Monadnock Speedway management Saturday from going forward as planned, but Mother Nature finally won out with the last downpour forcing the annual ‘Firecracker 100’ stopped on Lap-66, with local favorite Todd Patnode, of Swanzey, NH, leading the race and declared the winner.
Patnode won the same race last year. 


Patnode took the lead on lap-25 when he passed pole sitter Les Hinckley, a 19-time series winner, making
his first start of the season. 


Patnode addressed the way the race went for him. “When I went out earlier I told the crew I didn’t think I would ride tonight like we normally do because I was afraid the weather would come in so I guess we were right on
that so we went a little early.”


The Swanzey, NH, oilman added, “the car started to go away a little bit- right near the end and I don’t know why but the tire is on the rim over in tech I guess that’s
my answer – a tire going down.”


The veteran driver concluded, “ It’s just great to be back racing with the Valenti bunch it’s a great bunch of guys- the series is awesome. They waited it out to get it in for us my hats off to the series and the track.” 

The victory is Patnode’s fifth series win that ties him with Andy Seuss and Ted Christopher on the series all- time win list. He also ties Dwight Jarvis with five wins at Monadnock.

Jeffrey Gallup, who scored his first series win this season, finished a solid second, with Rob Richardi Jr, third,
for his best finish of the season.


Hinckley and Brian Robie rounded out the top five. 

Sixth through tenth were Ronnie Williams, Kirk Alexander, Joey Kendall, Geoff Rollins, and Ben Byrne. 

Heat races were won by Hinckley and Robie. 

Nine cars were on the lead lap when the race was stopped
