As NEMRR Spherical 4 occurred at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, the
paddock was reminded of each the unbelievable highs and lows that come
with our sport.  This June occasion included a Memorial Experience to
rejoice of the lifetime of Scott Mullin, a beloved NEMRR racer who handed

the information of the passing of Scott Briody.  Scott was racing within the
Superstock class at MotoAmerica at Brainerd Worldwide Raceway and

omnipresent.  The breadth and depth of his connection to riders
all through the NEMRR paddock really got here to gentle, and was an unbelievable
ray of sunshine shining by means of the somber cloud of reports that fell upon the
speedway.  The actual fact the one man may have made such an indelible impression
on so many individuals in such a short while is the inspiration of the legacy
that Scott Briody leaves behind.  As riders consoled and shared with

generosity each in sharing his materials issues and his time.  How may
one individual spend significant time with such an enormous portion of our paddock
regularly?  Have been there two or three Scott Briodys?  Upon
reflection, that reply isn’t any. Maybe the best a part of street racing
(the half that we maintain with us lengthy after we cease churning laps) is the
unbelievable individuals we meet alongside the best way.  There’ll solely ever be one
Scott Briody, and people of us who had the great fortune to know him will
ceaselessly cherish the time we had collectively.

The climate over the weekend may solely be described as close to

8/8 wins on his Argo Cycles Yamaha R6, highlighted by his victory within the
Michelin/Motorace $1500 sprint for money.  Greenwood is the reigning

as such his win didn’t come as a shock to NEMRR regulars.  Nevertheless,
the efficiency of 2nd place finisher Ben Gloddy had the paddock buzzing
after the race.  Driving his Moto America Twins Cup Aprilia RS660, constructed
by Robem Engineering, Gloddy made up for his deficit in horsepower with
some remarkably deep braking and excessive nook pace.  Gloddy began in
sixth place and by the 4th lap had labored his approach as much as 2nd place.  He
