As the Granite State Pro Stock Series makes its way through the long New England off season, series staff and teams prepare for the upcoming racing calendar.
The 2020 Schedule has seen a few last minute adjustments of late, but the bulk of it remains the same. The tentative Adirondack date won’t happen but Waterford has picked up that date and construction at the CT shoreline oval seems to be progressing nicely.
In 2020 The Granite State Pro Stock Series will visit eleven tracks across five states. The series, in its ninth year of operation, will undertake its most ambitious schedule to date with one new venue and plenty of great racing for competitors and fans alike.
The series will kick off at the Claremont Motorsports Park in Claremont NH as the third mile oval has become the traditional opener for the series. Mike Parks has taken on the challenge of promoting not only the series but his home track so having both openers at the same location will work well. The NH oval will also host the annual Labor Day Spectacular which has quickly become one of the most popular races the series holds. It has also become the highest paying event on the schedule and a favorite among competitors.
Walpole NH – For the first time ever, The Granite State Pro Stock Series will contest an event at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway. The track has held Pro Stock races both weekly and as host to touring series since the track was paved in 1986.
The series will make its debut at the Scarborough ME oval on Friday night, July 24. The race will be 100 laps of green flag racing and qualifying will include the ultra-popular Crazy Horse Racing fast time challenge as well as heat races and a consi if needed.
The Granite State Pro Stock Series will allow its competitors to use two new body options for the 2020 racing season.
The brand new AR Revolution reskin kit, to be released at PRI 2019, will be legal for 2020 along with 5 Star’s Gen 6 body that was released one year ago. Both of these new body options will carry a 20 pound weight penalty for the 2020 racing season.
