GSPSS and Claremont Motorsports Park finally Going Racing
The Granite State Pro Stock Series and Claremont Motorsports Park are going racing… finally! June 5 at 7pm the sound of stock cars will return to Claremont NH as the facility will see competition for the first time in 2020.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, both the series and tracks schedules have been put on hold until now. Due to state of NH restrictions, fans will not be allowed in the grandstands but those wanting to witness this event will be able to do so via Speed51 pay per view. “We are really excited to be able to team up with our partners at speed51 and make this event happen”, stated series President Mike Parks. “While we wish we could have our loyal fans in the stands cheering our competitors on, it’s just not in the cards at this time.”
Claremont to Host Super Late Model Race Without Fans
For the first time in 2020, a Super Late Model race will be held in the Northeast on Friday, June 5. Claremont Motorsports Park in Claremont, New Hampshire announced Saturday that the track will hold a Granite State Pro Stock Series event without fans in attendance. The event will be streamed via a live pay-per-view broadcast on Speed51.
The announcement comes following the postponement of many Northeast Late Model racing events due to government restrictions that have been placed on large gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Following discussions with state and local officials, Claremont has received approval to contest the “Let’s Go Racing 100,” the season opener for the Granite State Pro Stock Series.
Waterbury, VT & Vallée-Jct., QC – American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Autodrome Chaudiere officials have mutually agreed to cancel the Claude Leclerc 150 that was scheduled for Saturday, May 30. The event, which debuted in 2019, is expected to return to the ACT Late Model Tour schedule for the 2021 season.
The decision, as with many other racing postponements and cancellations in 2020, was made due to health and safety restrictions in place related to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. To comply with Quebec mandates and guidelines, Autodrome Chaudiere had previously suspended all racing events through the month of August. Furthermore, the United States–Canada border remains closed to non-essential travel through at least June 21, which would preclude U.S. teams from traveling to the track even if it was in operation.
