Even at 95, Pete Racine is ready to answer another roll call.
On July 18, St. Johnsbury resident and WWII Veteran Edward “Pete” Racine will attempt a double-roll stunt in a car at the Riverside Speedway in Groveton, N.H.
It will be the second time in three years that Racine has climbed into a vehicle intent on rolling it over. On July 22, 2017, Racine performed the stunt before an audience at Bear Ridge Speedway in Bradford. It rolled once, coming to rest back on the tires. This time he’s going for more.
“I’m going for double, or even triple, whatever comes,” said Racine.
His wild ride will take place at Riverside the same day as the speedway’s Monster Massacre-Monster Truck Show.
Brian Hanaford, of Accessible Racing, is promoting Racine’s attempt as part of an effort to draw attention to the Accessible Racing organization.
