The Granite State Pro Stock Series inaugural race at Wiscasset Speedway started Saturday afternoon with two practice sessions and autographs in the evening. The practice sessions on Saturday saw series regulars Derek Griffith of Hudson, NH, and Mike O’Sullivan of Springfield, MA clocking laps at 15.1 seconds.  However, on Sunday this changed with Maine drivers Andy Saunders of Elsworth, ME, Jacob Dore of Sanford ME, and Scott Chubbuck of Bowdoin, ME achieving those times. The mix of experienced versus inexperienced drivers made for some interesting racing.

 

The first two heats of the afternoon were relatively clean and had some good racing.  Heat three however saw some action as Mike O’Sullivan, Brandon Sprague of Edgecomb, ME, and John Rideout of Washington, ME went three wide into turn one and Rideout made contact with the wall, bringing out the red flag.  The ensuing laps saw a battle in the front between DJ Shaw of Center Conway, NH and Jeremy Davis of Tamworth, NH.  On the last lap Davis was sideways and managed to save it to hold off Shaw for the heat win.
