2018 Schedule Announced For Granite State Pro Stock Series

WALPOLE, N.H. – Returns to New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Hudson International Speedway headline a tentative 13-race schedule for the Granite State Pro Stock Series in 2018.
The season will begin with a test and tune session on April 28, before drivers take the first green flag at Claremont Speedway on May 4, with a 100-lap main event. The season will conclude and the champion will once again be crowned at New London-Waterford Speedbowl on Saturday, Oct. 20.
“The goal of the series has always been a 14-race schedule,” GSPSS president Mike Parks said. “That seems to be the number that works. We are still working on one more addition that would bring it to 14 races and we should know if that is going to happen just after the holidays.” (more…)
Granite State Pro Stocks 2017 Season in Review
WALPOLE, N.H. – The 2017 Granite State Pro Stock Series season saw one driver work himself back into championship form. Springfield, Mass. native Mike O’Sullivan never visited Victory Lane, but that didn’t matter much when it came to the fight for the title. O’Sullivan finished seventh in the finale at New London-Waterford Speedbowl and that was enough to clinch him his second career championship on the Granite State Pro Stock touring series.
O’SULLIVAN BECOMES A TWO-TIME GSPSS CHAMPION
WATERFORD, Conn. — The 2017 Granite State Pro Stock Series season saw one driver capture his second championship. Mike O’Sullivan, a former champion at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, wasn’t able to visit Victory Lane in the 12-race schedule.
But that didn’t matter.
O’Sullivan was consistent enough to roll into the season-finale at New London-Waterford Speedbowl with a four point lead over Scott MacMichael. While his challengers had trouble, O’Sullivan was calm, cool and collective and finished seventh in the 100 lap feature. He avoided a few crashes and settled in late, knowing he just needed to finish well to become a two-time Granite State Series champion.

WATERFORD, Conn. – Joe Squeglia used a late pass of Angelo Belsito to capture his third Granite State Pro Stock Series victory of the season on Saturday night at New London-Waterford Speedbowl.
In the 25-car field that was filled with talent, Squeglia had to start ninth in the 100-lap main event, but it didn’t take him long to work his way up through the pack. He fought for second spot for most of the first half of the race, but when he finally got clear, he set his sights on Belsito looking for the top spot.

WALPOLE, N.H. – The Granite State Pro Stock Series season will end in style on Saturday evening at Connecticut’s New London-Waterford Speedbowl. With one of the largest car counts of the season expected, the 2017 series champion will be crowned in the season-finale.

The only driver who has two victories in GSPSS competition so far this season is Joe Squeglia, who will be back at the Speedbowl.
