Nick’s Pitstop Legends series has boasted one of the most competitive fields at Seekonk with full fields hitting the oval on most nights. Legends Cars have become one of the fastest growing segments of motorsports today. With drivers being classified into four different divisions, Legends Cars is a racing opportunity that is available to anyone.
The Pro Division is for the experienced drivers. The Masters Division features drivers 40 years and older. The Semi-Pro Division is the novice class, featuring the drivers that are new to the sport or have been inactive in other forms of racing for a while. Then there is the Young Lions Division which is designated for the drivers between the ages of 12 and 16. While the car stays the same from division to division, it is the driver that makes the difference.
Jordan Lamothe will be looking to repeat as the Track Champion again in 2016 while being challenged by a field that grows increasingly more competitive every season. Seekonk is looking forward to several new competitors in 2016.
