Adam Fenwick, Special to NASCARHomeTracks.com

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - For Curtis Gerry, consistency was the name of the game at Maine’s Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in 2016.

The 46-year-old driver from Waterboro, Maine, finished in the top-five in 10 out of 11 starts at the third-mile asphalt oval. That was enough for him to capture his first NASCAR track championship at Beech Ridge as well as the Maine state championship.

He did all that without finding victory lane once last year at Beech Ridge.
