WESTMINSTER, Mass. – With two Tour-Type Modified wins at his home track in the last few years, Sam Rameau is filled with confidence heading back to Monadnock Speedway this Saturday night. Rameau will drive the No. 06 Central Mass Tree Modified in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Duel at the Dog 200, live on FloRacing.TV at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday night, June 18.
Rameau – ready to make his second NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour start of the season – was the 2019 Sunoco Rookie of the Year on the Tour. In his only Tour start at the track, in 2020, Rameau finished eighth. This time, he’s hoping to improve on that and contend for the win in the Duel at the Dog 200.
“Monadnock is one of my favorite tracks,” Rameau said. “Not only is it home for us, but it’s a really demanding track and I feel like it fits my driving style well to be up on the wheel for the whole race. With 200 laps, it’s a long one, but I think if we conserve the car in the first half, we will be there at the end to race for the win. The competition is going to be tough. Looking forward to getting back there.”
Saturday’s race day schedule begins with practice from 2-3 p.m., followed by Mayhew Tools pole qualifying at 5 p.m. The green flag for the Duel at the Dog 200 is scheduled for 8:30 p.m., live on FloRacing.TV. All tickets for the event are available in advance at JDVProductions.com and will also be sold on race day.

WESTMINSTER, Mass. – Sam Rameau is looking for a big check this weekend. The driver of the No. 06 Modified will compete in the $15,000 to win Racing Guys 100 at Claremont Motorsports Park on Friday, June 3 – a race postponed one week due to Mother Nature.
Rameau is off to a strong start to the 2022 season, with two podium finishes at Monadnock Speedway at the end of April. Last weekend, Rameau competed in the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series event at Thunder Road International Speedbowl and was running at the front of the pack when he decided to pit, but couldn’t make his way back to the front before the end of the race.
Rameau is excited to head to Claremont for the first of two races at the New Hampshire oval this month, and three during the season. Rameau will also compete in the Whitcomb 5 Series event at Claremont on June 17 and the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Clash at Claremont on July 29.
“Claremont is a fun track, tough to figure out, but I think we will have a strong night,” Rameau said. “Looking forward to getting some laps there in this race to get ready for the other upcoming races we will run there, but with $15,000 on the line, we’re going there looking for the win. Our team has been working hard on cars for multiple divisions for this year and we’re excited to try and reward all of them and our sponsors with a big victory this Friday.”
Claremont’s race day includes one Tour-Type Modified practice from 4-5 p.m., followed by time trials at 7 p.m. There will also be 12-lap qualifying heats and the 100-lap race, worth $15,000 to win. The race will be available on RacingAmerica.TV for those who can’t make it to the track.

All in all, we’re just excited to finally get back on the Tour. I can’t thank all of my guys and girls who make it happen, sponsors, supporters and everyone else for their hard work.”

After an offseason full of hard work and anticipation, Sam Rameau and the Rameau Family Motorsports team are ready to head back to work at the track this weekend. The Massachusetts based operation will roll just up the road at Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, New Hampshire, as Rameau will compete in two events over two days at Monadnock’s season-opening Spring Dash weekend.
On Saturday, Rameau will look for his third victory in the last five Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series events at Monadnock, set for 100 laps, with $10,000 on the line to the winner. Rameau picked up his first career Tri-Track win at the track in August of 2020 and followed it up by winning the season-opener at the beginning of 2021.

On Sunday, Rameau will debut in a new ride in a brand new series - the Whitcomb 5 Series - as part of the NHSTRA Modified division at Monadnock.

It’s the first of five races Rameau is planning on running in the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Racing Series NHSTRA Modified division in New Hampshire in 2022.
He will chase the championship on both the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series circuit and the Whitcomb 5 Series.
“Definitely excited to get both of the cars on the track this weekend at Monadnock,” Rameau said. “It’s been a long offseason – building basically new cars for the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series, Whitcomb 5 Series and some NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour races. There is a lot of excitement around our group. There is no better way to start the season – double-duty at the home track, with three straight days of racing if you include the Friday practice. We are hoping for a good weekend.”
The race weekend schedule at Monadnock for Rameau Family Motorsports is going to be a busy one. On Friday, the team will take part in an optional practice session on the high-banks from 2-5 p.m. On Saturday, Sam will strap in the car for 100 laps of Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series competition with the big $10,000 prize on the line. On Sunday, Sam will wheel a different ride in the NHSTRA Modified event, worth $5,000 to win, as part of the Whitcomb 5 Series.
All tickets for the event will be sold at the gate on race day. A full schedule of events for the weekend can be found online at the Monadnock Speedway Facebook page. Saturday’s Tri-Track race will air live on RacingAmerica.TV for those who can’t make it to the track.

WESTMINSTER, Mass. -- After just over two months out from behind the wheel focusing on his education, Rameau Family Motorsports is happy to announce that Sammy Rameau will return to the seat of the No. 06 this weekend at Seekonk Speedway. Rameau will pilot the familiar family-owned entry in the Tri Track Open Modified Series Haunted Hundred event, set for 100 laps and worth $6,000 to win.
Earlier in the year, Rameau captured the victory in the Tri Track season-opener at Monadnock Speedway, and even with missing a race, Rameau still is contending for a top-15 finish in the point standings in the competitive touring division. He isn’t concerned about being out of the seat, and is ready to rock on Friday, October 22 for practice, and Saturday, October 23, for race day.
“I think it will be a good day,” Rameau said. “We have raced Legends Cars there before, run some Whelen Modified Tour races, Open Shows, and Tri Track events. It’s a cool little track, where a lot can happen in a really short time. I think everywhere we race has some really great competition. It’s always going to be a challenge. The guys like Hirschman, Bonsignore… they are always tough to beat. Looking forward to seeing how we match up at Seekonk.”
Saturday’s Tri Track finale includes practice from 10-10:45 a.m., with qualifying heats set to take the green flag at 1 p.m. The American-Canadian Tour Late Models and Pro All Star Series Pro Stocks will also join the show, which will be made up of three, 100-lap races to end the season. Tickets will be available at the track and are $30 for adults, $10 for children ages 6-12 and kids five and under are free in the grandstands.

WESTMINSTER, Mass. -- The last two times Sam Rameau and the Rameau Family Motorsports team competed at Monadnock Speedway, a trophy went home back to Westminster, Massachusetts. This Saturday, the team returns to Tri Track Open Modified Series competition at the home track for another 100-lap feature, in round four of the Tri Track season.
Rameau picked up the big win on Saturday, May 1 at Monadnock earlier this year, dominating the early stages, then pitting and having to drive through the field late to score the win with a late pass for the lead. This time, he hopes the road to Victory Lane is a bit easier. Rameau will look to get back on track after a rough day at Star Speedway last time out and nearly a month off.
Through four events on the Tri Track circuit, Rameau sits sixth in the championship standings, just 31 points from the top.
The full schedule for race day includes one practice session from 2:30-3:30 p.m., followed by qualifying heat races at 5:30 p.m. The 100-lap feature is scheduled to take the green flag at 8:45 p.m.

EPPING, N.H. -- It was a tough two days for Sam Rameau and the Rameau Family Motorsports team at Star Speedway. Competing in the third round of the Tri Track Open Modified Series season, Rameau struggled with the handling of the No. 06 Central Mass Tree machine, starting with practice on Friday, and rolling into Saturday’s race day.
Rameau wasn’t able to qualify through the heat races, but received a Tri Track provisional as a past winner during the 2021 season. He started the race back in 27th position, and improved on his spot early in the race, but wasn’t able to finish following an accident in turn one in the late stages.
However, the team put forth a terrific effort against 40 of the top Modified drivers in the Northeast in one of the highest paying races in the history of Star Speedway and the Tri Track Open Modified Series.
“We had a tough day but I can’t thank all of my guys enough for their hard work over the two days at Star,” Rameau said. “Looking forward to trying to improve at the next race.”
Sam Rameau will return to the track with the Tri Track Open Modified Series on Saturday, August 14, back at Monadnock Speedway, where Rameau won in May. For more information on Sam Rameau and Rameau Family Motorsports, visit SammyRameau.com and follow Rameau Family Motorsports on Facebook.

Set for the prestigious 10th annual SBM 125, Rameau will drive the No. 06 machine in his attempt to pocket the $6,000 winning prize and gain back the points lead on the Tri Track circuit.
Rameau won the Tri Track Open Modified Series season-opener at Monadnock Speedway on May 1, and when the series visited Star on May 22, he finished 12th. This time, the Westminster, Massachusetts, driver is hoping to advance his position and become a major contender to win one of the top Modified races of the year. The event has a purse of over $66,000, with multiple bonus awards on the line.
“Tri Track is our main focus,” Rameau said. “I think we will have a good shot to win at Star, and anywhere the Tri Track Series goes this season. I think we will be in good shape when we get there.”
The schedule for Saturday’s events includes one practice session from 1:30-2:30 p.m., with qualifying heat races set to begin just after 3:30 p.m. The estimated start time for the Tri Track feature is 6:30 p.m., but subject to change.

LOUDON, N.H. -- It wasn’t the exact day that Sam Rameau and the Rameau Family Motorsports team were looking for at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but Rameau drove the car to a solid 12th place finish in the Whelen 100 on Saturday, July 17. In just his second NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour start of the season, Rameau struggled with power under the hood throughout the day, going a lap down in the middle of the race.
However -- with the assistance of a timely lucky dog -- Rameau got back on the lead lap and charged to a solid 12th place finish in the No. 06 Central Mass Tree machine. The team worked hard all day and Rameau rewarded them with a strong finish in the field of nearly 30 cars.
“We struggled big time in practice with a carburetor issue this morning,” Rameau said. “We overcame that issue, but the car handled well all day. We think something might be up with the motor -- I just think it’s a bit tired. It’s time for a new one. We look forward to getting to Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on August 21 for our next NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race. It’s a good day when you come out of these shows in one piece and we did that today.”
Sam Rameau will return to the track on Saturday, July 24, with the Tri Track Open Modified Series at Star Speedway in Epping, New Hampshire. He currently sits second in their championship standings with one victory early in the season.
