(Seekonk, MA) — Rave reviews from fans, competitors, and supporting race facilities, has created off-season interest in the 2nd Annual U.S. Pro Stock/Super Late Model National Championship Race, Wednesday, July 12, at Seekonk Speedway, Seekonk, MA.

WALPOLE, N.H. – Even though the 2016 Granite State Pro Stock Series season finished just a few weeks ago at New London-Waterford Speedbowl, the GSPSS is already looking ahead to the 2017 campaign.
And with that, the series is proud to announce the first scheduled race for next season at Seekonk Speedway in Seekonk, Mass. The inaugural Seekonk 100 will take place on Saturday night June 24, 2017.
“We are extremely happy to be able to work with Seekonk Speedway to bring the GSPSS there for the 2017 season,” GSPSS president Mike Parks said. “Seekonk is the home of weekly Super Late Model racing in Southern New England. By adding the GSPSS to the schedule, it has the making of a super event. We have been talking to them for two years and we feel the timing is correct for 2017.”
Payea in Right Place at Right Time for Propane Plus 150 Win
American Canadian Tour
Seekonk, MA – Scott Payea was the last man standing on a wild night at Massachusetts’ Seekonk Speedway on Saturday, July 16, taking the lead with three laps to go en route to his second American-Canadian Tour (ACT) win of the season in the Propane Plus 150.
Colchester, VT’s Payea had run a distant second to Brad Babb for much of the second half of the event, but the 12th caution of the night for ACT Late Model Tour point leader Nick Sweet’s spin on lap 141 set up a showdown between Babb, Payea, Eddie MacDonald, and Dillon Moltz. After Babb got off to a strong restart, Payea began inching back up on the outside as the laps wound down.
Emily Packard Ready to Return for Race #2 of the Southern New England Triple-header at Seekonk Speedway
EAST MONTPELIER, Vt. – After missing the Speedway 51 race to attend a family member’s graduation, Emily Packard is anxious to get back into her Northstar Fireworks/Packard Fuels sponsored race car at Seekonk Speedway. “I can’t wait to get back in the car,” said the 19-year old. “I have missed being in the car, and I am really looking forward to going to Seekonk for the second race of the Southern New England Triple-Header.” Earlier this year ACT announced the addition of the Southern New England Triple-header, where local drivers from those three tracks can showcase their talent against the ACT tour regulars. The first race was held at the New London/Waterford Speedbowl, where Packard brought home a twelfth place finish. The final round will be run at Thompson Speedway, the last race of the American Canadian Tour season. A separate point fund has been set-up and at the conclusion of the race at Thompson, someone will be crowned the Triple-header Champion.
Waterbury, VT – The 2016 American Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models of New England head to the famous “Cement Palace” that the Venditti family has owned and operated for over six decades. This Saturday night, July 16, a 150-lap ACT Triple Header, round two event, will be contested with the best of the ACT competitors and the weekly racers from Seekonk, Waterford Speedbowl, and Thompson Speedway. The first of the three Triple Header events was won in a run-away by Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. (Pole) at the Waterford Speedbowl in May. He also won his first race, and the last ACT race held at Seekonk, in 2007. He looks to become the spoiler in his limited schedule of 2016 events this Saturday night.
“It is a different mind-set when you are not in a title battle. Our team just has to concentrate on winning the race and not worry about the championship points. I miss the competition for winning titles, but after over a decade of chasing point standings, this is kind of fun just running for the wins. I just don’t want to upset what has turned out to be a very competitive title run for four or five teams, so that puts a little added pressure on us to try and get clear of their track action if possible,” said Pole.
