Laquerre’s Power Sports, Segway Join Patrick Emerling for Xfinity Race at Loudon

Patrick Emerling has partnered with Laquerre’s Power Sports and Segway for Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series SciAps 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, the driver confirmed on Thursday.

Based in East Montpelier, Vermont, Laquerre’s Power Sports is a family-owned and operated business, founded in 1961, that offers product lines from Polaris off-road and snow, Segway Powersports off-road, Princecraft boats, and Hewitt docks.  The company sells, services, stores, and repairs all the equipment you need to enjoy outdoor motorsports in New England.

“Laquerre’s Power Sports is proud to announce our partnership with SS-GreenLight Racing and Patrick Emerling this weekend at NHMS for the SciAps 200,” said Laquerre’s Power Sports owner Jeff Laquerre. “My family has been involved in many types of racing over the years, as well as owning and operating two race tracks. Laquerres have raced at NHMS with the American-Canadian Tour since 2009, so it’s really exciting to be involved at this level.”

Since the 1960s, multiple generations of the Laquerre family have been a part of local short track racing in New England. Arnand Laquerre, the grandfather of Laquerre’s Power Sports owner Jeff Laquerre, was part of the group that built Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barrie, Vermont. Jeff’s father, Joey, started racing as a teenager and still races today at the age of 81. Jeff’s nephew, 15-year-old Jesses is the latest Laquerre to carry on the family tradition on the track.

“The Laquerres are a powerhouse racing family in New England. They are racing in New England,” said Emerling. “This is the second weekend in a row that I’ve partnered with a family business owned by true champions of the sport at the local level. It means a lot that they’re throwing their support behind me.”

Segway, the worldwide leader in personal transportation, will also be part of the effort. Founded in 1999 by renowned inventor, Dean Kamen, Segway always strives to provide high-quality, safe, and reliable products for its customers.

Emerling is one of the two drivers who will be pulling double duty on Saturday between the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour events, joining Justin Bonsignore – who will make his series debut for Joe Gibbs Racing.

“New Hampshire is one of my favorite tracks,” said Emerling. “I’ve had eight top-five finishes there in the Whelen Tour, and I won the Shootout there in 2019. I want a feature win this time. It’s going to be a packed day, but I think the extra time on the track is an advantage. Especially at a track where I’ve been so successful.”

Also joining Emerling this weekend in New Hampshire is Granite State De-Icing Supply, as well as season-long partners Simforge and Frontline Optics.
