The Street Stock class is one of the low-cost divisions at local race tracks.

Drivers usually don’t have to dump a lot of money into their cars like Pro Stock or Late Model drivers, and the winner of a Street Stock feature makes $200 at Hermon’s Speedway 95 and Spud Speedway in Caribou.

But John Albert, who is leasing Spud Speedway from Troy Haney, and son Jamie are going to provide Street Stock racers with the opportunity to win more than seven times that amount Sunday afternoon.

The Northern Maine Street Stock 100 — rained out last weekend — will pay the winner $1,500. The second-place finisher will pocket $1,000, and third place will pay $750.

Everyone who starts the race is guaranteed at least $100.

“Everybody gets something,” Albert said.

Racing will get underway at 1:30.

There also will be racing in Spud Speedway’s other classes: Pro Stocks, Northern Lights (four-cylinder cars) and Enduros.

“The reason we did this is the Street Stocks, typically, never get a chance to race for a whole lot of money,” Jamie Albert, who will serve as the race director, said. “We want to give them that chance. They’ll win more by finishing seventh than they would by winning a weekly feature.”

Seventh place will pay $300.

“This will also give them a chance to shine. They’ll be able to show that they have talent, too,” Albert said.

Albert said Street Stock cars from Maine’s other race tracks shouldn’t have a problem conforming to Spud’s rules package. He explained they patterned their rules packages after the other tracks’ packages so cars from those tracks could race at Spud Speedway without significant alterations.

Albert expects to have at least 16 cars overall for the race.

“I don’t see that being a problem at all,” he said.

He said the track is in “good shape,” and drivers will be able to “pass on the high line or the low line.”

He considers Presque Isle’s Jeff Willette the race favorite. He has run two of the four Street Stock races to date at Spud Speedway and is fourth in points.

“He is probably the guy to beat,” Albert said. “He has everything it takes to win.”

J.R. Howlett and Jon Dixon of Presque Isle also are more than capable of winning, according to Albert.

Presque Isle’s Carl Tucker is the Street Stock points leaders at Spud Speedway with 188, followed by Castle Hill’s Mark Graves (172), Howlett (150), Willette (101) and Dixon (91).

Howlett has run three of the four races and Dixon has raced in two events.

Albert said in order to win the race, drivers have to be “patient” and “avoid the traffic” over the paved oval, which is 0.35 of a mile.
