WAKEFIELD — Pine Knoll Auto Sales on Route 16 held its grand opening Aug. 10, with owner Melissa Fifield surrounded by celebrating family, friends and community members.

Following the ribbon cutting, Rev. Garrett Lear read Bible scripture and Pastor Tony McDungh offered a prayer. Former Executive Councilor Joe Kenney attended, as did Wakefield Chamber of Commerce Director Tom Dube, along with dozens of others to wish Fifield good luck in her new venture.

Fifield, known to many as a driver in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, is excited to start her new venture.

"I am very excited to be starting my own auto dealership. I am looking forward to bringing you quality automobiles at an affordable price," she announced.

Driving, and doing so safely, has long been a passion of hers as she explains on her Web site, writing "I grew up going to racetracks and watching races which developed my love for cars and a need for speed at a very young age. When I was 11 years old, I got my first racing kart. In my rookie year I won the Londonderry Track Championship. I then went on to compete in the World Karting Association and was ranked 4th nationally.

"At the age of 14 I joined the Allison Legacy Series where I competed in both the North and South Series. I also competed in several other types of racing such as late models and road racing venues, and the Valenti Modified Racing Series with my first modified. In 2014 I moved into NASCAR in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. I have been awarded the "Most Popular Driver" award for the last three years it has been held. I am currently a spokesperson for New Hampshire Highway Safety working to keep drivers safe. For my efforts, I was recognized by Governor Sununu and earned a Congressional Citation."
