Lee, NH – While there are several rookie competitors coming on board for the 2014 racing season at Lee USA Speedway, “New Hampshire’s Center of Speed”, the speedway staff running the show will be anything but that.
Led by track manager Bill Callen and promoter Joe Bassett, track owners Red and Judy MacDonald are proud to announce that their 2014 staff will include several well-respected veterans of the sport, with the tech staff once again being led by Buzzie Bezanson, Jr.
Bezanson cut his racing teeth at the old Lee Tri-Oval in the 1970‘s, eventually moving on to racing success on the ACT tour and Busch North Series, giving him a good look at what goes on behind the scenes of racing at all levels.
After his first season at the helm, anybody who has tried to play outside the rules will tell you that nothing gets past his scrutiny.
Buzzie’s 2014 support crew will consist of several racing and officiating veterans, including former head of tech Dave Tebbetts, “Jimma” Twombly, longtime Hobby Stock car owner Dennis Soares, Carl Goodwin, Al Paradise, and one of the first-ever female competitors at Lee USA, former Hobby Stocker Nancy Goodwin.
You’ll never make it to tech without first finding your way to handicapper Phil Stetson. He and assistant Emmanuel Arguelles will make sure you’re signed in and assigned your proper starting spot, and if you don’t turn in your rented transponder…don’t even go there.
Paul York will maintain order on the race track as the newly-named race director a former championship contending crew chief who has extensive experience in all aspects of race car prep, race strategy execution, and technical inspection.
There are no other words to describe tire guys Rich Goldoni, Tom Kimball, John Clark and Nick Myshrall, because that‘s what they do, they’re the guys who keep our teams supplied with tires to keep the action going every week. Not a crew member in the pits has a bad word to say about the tire guys.
The aforementioned race director York is a longtime “tire guy”, so that might change in 2014.
On the media end of things, track announcer John Spence will be taking to the microphone for his 39th season of calling the action from high above trackside, while one of his cohorts from the early days on the old Lee Tri-Oval back in the 1870‘s, (okay maybe the 1970‘s), Rich “Purple” Hayes will be providing images and race reporting of the goings-on for our website every week during the 2014 season.
Track owners and promoters Red and Judy MacDonald, who’ve steered the Lee USA Speedway ship for nearly 30 years invite you to join us for another highly-successful season in 2014 !!!
