Moltz, Squeglia Looking to Record First Granite State Pro Stock Victory at NH Classic

GSPS2Walpole, NH-    For two Granite State Pro Stock (GSPSS) drivers, a win at the inaugural NH Classic at Star Speedway would be redemption at Star Speedway. 

 

Joey Squeglia, JR has been fast at each race he’s attended all year, including races at Monadnock Speedway, Lee USA Speedway, and Star Speedway.  The Derry, NH driver started on the pole for the August 16th race at his home track, Star Speedway in Epping, NH, and led early in the race, but had to fight his way back through the field after a trip down pit road with a flat right rear tire, finishing 7th.  To win the NH Classic at his home track, where he was a champion in the Outlaw division a year ago, would be a step in the right direction, according to the pilot of the Auto Mart Trucks + Cars/PH Electric/George Cairns + Sons Chevrolet.  “We would like nothing more than to win on Star Classic night!” says Squeglia.  “Luck has not been on our side at our home track, but we are going to try and turn that around this weekend.  We need a well handling car and to be patient, with some luck sprinkled on top.”
