Bio: The terms “Thompson Speedway” and “New England Motorsports” are all but synonymous. The track that became known as the “Indy of the East” was born out of the calamitous hurricane that devastated much of New England in 1938. With the track alive today, this 5/8ths mile opened in May of 1940 features stock car and open wheel racing like no other. It is a classic circuit for action to endure.
