THOMPSON, CT – The North East Street Stock Tour will visit Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park twice to bookend the sophomore season, as well as visit two new tracks, to highlight the 2016 season.
The North East Street Stock Tour (NESST) will begin the second season at the 5/8 mile Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, as part of the 42nd annual Icebreaker, on April 8-10. The tour will be one of twelve divisions on the weekend, including the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.

The second half of the season begins at another new facility on the schedule, as the NESST travels to Oxford, ME to be a part of Colossal Carnage Night at the 3/8 mile raceway. The event will include an enduro, the Pro All Star Series non-winners race, spectator drags, and a 35-lap feature event for the tour.
Monadnock Speedway will host two back-to-back events in the 2016 season, the first on July 30, with the second as part of the championship night at the facility, Super Saturday, on October 1.
