Lee, NH – After the untimely and shocking passing of Norm Wrenn III last November, the team of track officials at Lee USA Speedway has re-dedicated its efforts for the upcoming season, which will be run in Norm III’s memory.
In honor of the familiar car number 1m that Norm III carried on his Pro-4 Modified entry throughout his career, the Lee USA Speedway season has been aptly titled 2021m. In addition, there will be a special three-race series for the Pro-4 Modifieds this season, as well as the Norm III Triple Crown for Lee’s weekly NASCAR divisions.
Many of Norm III’s biggest successes came while racing at Lee, and his parents, track owners Norm and Shirley Wrenn, along with General Manager Joe Bassett and Operations Manager Sarah Lemay have been working hard to make the 2021m season the biggest and best yet to honor his legacy.
The Pro-4 Modifieds are slated to compete on May 15, again on July 23, and then will close out the three-race series as part of Oktoberfest weekend October 1-3, while the Norm III Triple Crown Series is on the calendar for June 11, July 2, and July 23.
