Eddie MacDonald Wins the Rain Delayed GSPSS at Thompson
For the second year in a row, Eddie Mac powered to victory in the Granite State Pro Stock Series 50 lap feature in the World Series of Racing at Thompson Motorsports Park on Saturday. Weather played a major role in the three day event washing out the Friday schedule forcing some creative rescheduling to combine two days into one.

Granite State Pro Stock Series headed to Thompsons World Series Next
As has become tradition, The Granite State Pro Stock Series heads to the world series at Thompson Speedway on Friday evening October 11. A full card of racing will be headlined by the traveling pro stocks as the series contests a fifty lap feature following two rounds of qualifying.

Derek Griffith returned to Granite State Pro Stock Series competition for Russ Conways Oktoberfest at Lee USA Speedway this weekend and left with the GSPSS trifecta. The annual festival of speed at the shoreline oval was run in the memory of the events founder, Russ Conway. When the weekend was complete it was a huge success for all in attendance especially Griffith.
Oktoberfest up next for the GSPSS at Lee USA Speedway
As the 2019 Granite State Pro Stock Series season winds down, the series takes part in one of the most anticipated events of the year. The two day Oktoberfest at Lee USA Speedway has become a destination event for New England race fans and teams alike.
The last three Lee events for the GSPSS have been dominated by two drivers from just up the road in Maine. They are friends, competitors, rivals and coworkers, as both drivers work at JBJ Machine in North Berwick Maine. The machine shop, owned by John Doiron, not only employs both drivers but makes numerous parts for race cars driven throughout New England.
Angelo Belsito defended his home track in dominant fashion going three for three in the 2019 D.A.V. Fall Classic. On a perfect day for racing, the Auburn MA driver was virtually just that in scoring his first D.A.V. as well as his first GSPSS victory.
The afternoon’s competition kicked off with the Crazy Horse Racing race for the pole and It was Belsito going out in the last group and jumping to the top of the board. Belsitos time of 12.377 seconds would give him the pole for the first of three heat races.
