SCARBOROUGH, Maine — The story heading into Saturday’s Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) event at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway was about whether or not the local Pro Stock regulars could compete with the series regulars and come out on top.
After 150 laps of tough racing around the flat Maine oval, local track regulars proved to be the dominant force. David Oliver passed local favorite Joe Pastore with less than 40 laps to go and drove away to his first career Granite State Pro Stock Series victory. Pastore crossed the line 1.428 seconds back in the runner-up spot, while Rusty Poland, another local favorite, was third. Garrett Hall was fourth and Bobby Webber Racing driver Bryan Kruczek fifth.

WALPOLE, N.H. — When the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) rolls into Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 12, track regulars are set to compete with GSPSS stars in what should be another classic battle in Maine.
Last year, more than 25 cars showed to the track — with track regular Wyatt Alexander stealing the show and scoring the victory with late drama — passing for the lead and the win in the final 20 laps. He may have made the finish look easy on track, but his first touring series win didn’t come without some mid-week drama.
Alexander’s drivetrain broke in a Beech Ridge weekly Pro Stock race just seven days prior — and he wasn’t even planning on running with Granite State until just a few days before race day.
Wyatt Alexander wins first GSPSS event at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway
For the first time in Granite State Pro Stock Series history, the traveling pro stockers visited the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway and Wyatt Alexander came out on top of stellar field of cars.
Although the day started out under cloudy skies with a touch of drizzle, it turned out to be a picture perfect day for racing with a varied field of series regulars, track regulars and teams who fit neither of those categories.
Series Point leader Ray Christain III would pace an incident free first practice which was interrupted briefly by drizzle, while it would be Derek Ramstrom posting the fastest time in practice two.
GSPSS headed to Beech Ridge speedway for the first time
For the first time ever The Granite State Pro Stock Series heads for the famed Beech Ridge Speedway in Scarborough Maine. This will be the third appearance for the series in the state of Maine and the first since 2017 and everyone involved couldn’t be more excited.
Ray Christian III leads the series regulars into this event. The Uncasville CT driver has already scored two wins in 2020 and looks to extend his point lead over Angelo Belsito and Joey Polewarczyk. Christain III used a recent weekly race to gain some experience at a track where he has very little. Belsito sits second in points, having scored two wins of his own, having never seen the facility while Polewarczyk has many laps there in a late model.
