For the past 20 years, the race held in honor of the Massachusetts based car owner - "Boston Louie" Seymour, who campaigned his winning midgets, sprints and Silver Crown cars across America, has brought together the very best in open wheel Midget racing. This past Wednesday at Seekonk Speedway was no different as Avery Stoehr fought off the NEMA field to take down his first Boston Louie Memorial victory.

On March 25, 2017, the most accomplished pavement open wheel racer in America , Dave Steele of Tampa Fl. passed away at Desoto Speedway in Bradenton while attempting to win his 100th sprint car race in the state of Florida. The NEMA Lites portion of the show has since been dedicated in honor of Steele, this year with the young Ryan Locke besting a star studded field, including Ken Schrader, in the 50 lap event.

In the NEMA portion of the event, Paul Scally took down the fast time of the day in his qualifier, after struggling with mechanical issues during the day. Scally also won the qualifier, and also took down the perseverance award for the evening.

In the NEMA feature, Doug Cleveland and Danny Cugini led the field to the green flag. Unfortunately, Cugini's evening would come to an end on lap one as his engine expired. When the green flag flew, young Avery Stoehr in the Bertrand 39 blasted around the outside of the field and into the lead. Stoehr began setting a torrid pace, until the caution flew on lap twelve.

When the field lined up for the green flag, Stoehr would pull away from John Zych, who had made his way to second at the time. Stoehr's march continued, as he clicked off six laps in the 11.1 range, running the fastest time of the day on lap fifteen, a blistering 11.10 second lap.

As the laps wound down, Stoehr extended his lead and would go on to take down the victory, and the sixth Boston Louie win for Bertrand Motorsports in the last seven events. Zych would finish second followed by Randy Cabral. Stoehr's victory also puts him into the points lead. Todd Bertrand was fourth followed by Doug Coby, Paul Scally, Doug Cleveland, Matt O'Brien, Andy Lunt, and Lanson Fornoro. Cabral was the hard charger in the NEMA feature and Stoehr led the most laps.

"This is the biggest win of my career," said Stoehr. "To win the Boston Louie is a dream for all NEMA racers, and I've been in victory lane before with my Dad. To do it myself, is just awesome. I need to thank Tim, Gil, Cara, Curt, Dave, Kayla, Norah, Jon, my Dad and the entire team for getting us here," said Stoehr.

In the Lites portion of the show, Randy Cabral took down the fast time portion of the event in qualifying, sponsored by iRacing. In the qualifiers, Ben Mikitarian and Jim Cataldo took down the wins, sponsored by Valeri Construction and Mike & Lu Jarrett.

In the feature event, young Jake Trainor jumped out into the lead from his pole starting position. Trainor was quickly pursued by Anthony Marvuglio in the Cabral #35 machine. Trainor and Marvuglo have been some of the stars in the early portion of the Lites season, running 1/3 in points thus far.

As the feature rolled on, young Ryan Locke was working his way through the field. Locke was sitting in third by lap twelve, and then would pass Marvuglio for second on lap thirteen. Behind Locke, Trainor and Marvuglio, seventh place starter and former NASCAR star, Kenny Schrader, was working his way through the field along with Randy Cabral.

As the laps wound down, Locke would make his bid for the lead against Trainor on lap 39. From there, Locke would pour on the heat, running the fastest lap of the feature and of the day on lap 42, a blistering 11.768 second lap, one of the quickest in recent years in the Memorial event.

Locke would go on to pull off the victory over Trainor, Marvuglio, Schrader, Cabral, up and comer Dominic Elicone, Matt Janisch, Alan Chambers, Jim Cataldo and Riche Coy.

"We started 6th which we pulled from the redraw. We had no real strategy other than take my time and keep the car under me for the first 30-35 laps and save the tires," said Locke. "I knew we had a good chance right from the drop of the green, as I was able to go three wide and the car stuck. I can't thank everyone enough who helps me - Locke Crane, Shawmut Equipment, Chester General Store, along with my parents, family and grand parents," concluded Locke.

The hard charger was Riche Coy, Long Distance awards went to Calvin Carrol and Matt Janisch, and the top father and son team went to Jeff & Ryan Locke.

Dave Steele
 
On March 25, 2017, the most accomplished pavement open wheel racer in America , Dave Steele of Tampa Fl. passed away at Desoto Speedway in Bradenton while attempting to win his 100th sprint car race in the state of Florida.

When the Nema midgets roll into Seekonk Speedway on June 26 2019, for the 23rd Annual Boston Louie Memorial, NEMA will honor Steele by extending the customary 29 lap race to 33 laps (Steele's number) for the Nema Lites portion of the event.

As a car owner, I had the opportunity to compete against Dave in the Silver Crown series for so many years. I also had the unique chance to race with him on one occasion at the Stafford Motor Speedway in 2006 when he drove our car.

On that day, I realized just how special and talented he was. In our forty plus years of racing in the silver crown series , there has never been one individual with such a combination of driving skills, mechanical ability, chassis knowledge and an uncanny eye for preparing the sharpest looking , state of the art, open wheel race cars.

I'm sure Boston Louie will be proud to share the spotlight with Superman at the 23rd Boston Louie Memorial

Stay tune for info regarding sponsorship for this event and how to donate to the Steele Family. 

Thank You

The Seymour Family 

“The Louie,” A Showcase of Talent
A brief overview of Boston Louie history follows.

1997 – The championship-bound Russ Stoehr and Bruce Beane won the first Boston Louie, besting legend Nokie Fornoro, the latter driving for the Scally family.

1998 – Another championship bound team, Drew Fornoro and Gene Angelillo prevailed besting Bobby Seymour. It was the first of three Louie victories for Angelillo.

1999 – A perfect night for Louie Seymour’s boys, Bobby, in the Scrivani #9, besting Mike in the Tapply #8.

2000 – Driving a car older than he was – the family #35 – Randy Cabral collected his first-ever NEMA checkered (he now has 33) with a convincing win over Nokie Fornoro.

2001 – Driving Babe Shaw’s 1s, Jeff Horn started eighth, had the lead by lap two and beat Russ Stoehr by a comfortable margin.

2002 – Moving to Waterford Speedbowl, 16-year old Bobby Santos III, driving a Seymour/Scrivani maintained car, scored his first “big” win. The winning pass – going under Tim Bertrand in turns three and four – came with 13 laps remaining.

2003 – Win number one for Payne and two for Angelillo came after Randy Cabral’s car was judged “too wide.”

2004 – Ben Seitz (Valeri 17) chased down Payne, took the lead with nine left and then survived a late restart challenge. Seitz and Valeri went on to the championships.

2005 – Back at Seekonk, Joey Payne took advantage of a lap 23 caution to pass Jeff Horn and become the first two-time winner. It was the third Louie for Angelillo.

2006 – It was Nokie’s turn and he wired it in the Jarret #4, finishing far ahead of Payne.

2007 – Seitz joined the two win club. Although he led every lap, Seitz had to beat back challenges from both Nokie Fornoro and Payne in the closing laps.

2008 – The Cabral/Bertrand team, with a motor borrowed from the Santos team, started eighth, had the lead by lap three and won by less than a car length over a very young Jeff Abold in a Seymour car. Bobby Santos III was third. Shaun Gosselin was the first “Louie” Lites winner.

2009 – The first of three straight wins for the Abold/Seymour team. After posting a blistering 10.859 in time trials, Abold came from the 16th starting spot and passed Cole Carter, driving for Bertrand, on lap 18. Anthony Marvuglio, in the Cabral 35, scored an emotional Lites win.

2010 – Starting 14th, Abold needed only 10 laps to grab the lead and then beat back a late challenge from Cabral. It was a sweep for the Seymours, Anthony Nocella winning the Lites event.

2011 – Setting fast time for the third straight year, Abold needed 19 laps to grab the lead and again beat back Cabral threats in the closing laps. David Moniz ruled the Lites feature.

2012 – Race cancelled due to weather

2013 – Doug Coby, in only his third Northeastern Midget Association ride, added the Boston Louie Memorial. The National NASCAR Whelen Modified champion got by Bertrand Racing teammate Randy Cabral with four laps remaining in the 29-lap event.

2014 - Randy Cabral over Todd Bertrand in the Midgets. PJ Stergios takes his second win in the Lites. Speed Sport Magazine covers the show for MAV TV.

2015 - Todd Bertrand beats teammate Randy Cabral. In the Lites, PJ Stergios scores his third in a row Boston Louie win.

2016 - Doug Coby invades & captures Midget race; Jim Chambers conquers Lites.

2017 - John Zych takes his first Boston Louie win; Dylan Duhaime and Jim Chambers stage a last lap LITES battle.

2018 - Randy Cabral becomes the first four-time winner of the Boston Louie; Dan Cugini takes the Lites race.

2019 - Avery Stoehr scored the NEMA Midgets victory for the "biggest win of my career." Young Ryan Locke took the LITES win.
