The Granite State Pro Stock Series is headed for Hudson Speedway for its third event of 2020 as NH continues to allow race tracks to operate.
After two successful events at Claremont Motorsports Park the series heads south to the tight quarter mile bullring in Hudson NH. The track has quickly become a favorite of series teams and they look forward to racing at a different venue in 2020.
Ray Christian III heads to Hudson with all the momentum in the world. The Uncasville CT driver has won the last three series events going back to last season and looks to continue the hot streak. “We’ve run pretty well there and we’ve run not so well there,” said Christain immediately following his most recent win at Claremont. “The guys have been giving me a great car and I just hope we can continue that on Sunday”.
Christian III goes Three in a Row with the GSPSS on the 4th of July
Ray Christian III kicked off the 2020 Independence Day weekend with his third GSPSS win in a row at Claremont Motorsports Park.
The Granite State Pro Stock Series took to the track for the second time of the season with an Independence Day celebration for the ages. Weekly racing, a massive fireworks display and 100 laps of pro stock action were on the card and non-disappointed.
Angelo Belsito looked to be the man to beat as he was quick in practice, fastest in the Crazy Horse Racing fast time challenge and handily won his heat race. It was an all Belsito kind of night until it came time for the GSPSS redraw. Eight drivers redrew and Belsito pulled the number 8.
Round two for the Granite State Pro Stock Series will be moved from the Lee USA Speedway to Claremont Motorsports Park. The event will still be held on July third and will have a post time of 7:30.
After lengthy conversations between Lee Speedway management and series promoter Mike Parks, it was decided that due to complications caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, that it would be best to move this event.
This event will consist of a 100 lap feature and qualifying will be through The Crazy Horse Racing Fast Time Challenge and heat races.
Claremont’s own Luke Hinkley was fastest in time trials at the opener and Ray Christian III will be looking to win his third straight event with the series and at the Thrasher Road speed plant.
The Granite State ProStock Series kicked off its ninth season of competition on Friday night and Ray Christian III started 2020 the same way he ended 2019.
Under clear skies and a full moon, the green flag finally fell as a stacked field of Pro Stocks descended on the Claremont Motorsports park for 100 laps of green flag racing. Some of the top drivers in New England took advantage of the opportunity to be a part of the first pro stock race contested in New England in 2020.
Competition began with The Crazy Horse Racing Fast Time Challenge and It was home town hot shoe Luke Hinkley coming up just short of a new track record. One of the tightest time trial fields on record headed for heat races with great anticipation and didn’t come up short on excitement.
Claremont Motorsports Park &GSPSS Return to Action
Claremont Motorsports Park will swing open the gates and return to action Friday June fifth. Three local divisions will be on the card competing in heats and features alongside the Granite State Pro Stock Series. Fans will not be permitted in the grand stands as the track follows state guide lines for social distancing, but the entire program can be seen via pay-per-view on speed51.
The RE Hinkley Oil Company street stocks will will contest a thirty-lap feature as one of the most exciting divisions in the northeast returns to action. David Greenslit won the track championship at both Claremont and Monadnock Speedway as he had a dream season in 2019. “I’m extremely happy to get back behind the wheel after far to long away from the track”, said Greenslit during a break in last minute preparations. “Mike (Parks) and the entire staff have worked their butts off and we want to put on a good show Friday night.”
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.”
