Todd Stone Takes the Checkers at White Mountain!

Woodstock, NH – Todd Stone of Middlebury, VT. took the checkers at the White Mountain 100 on Saturday night. In practice and the scuff sessions, veteran to the track, DJ Shaw of Center Conway, NH posted the fastest times. Wayne Helliwell Jr. of Dover, NH who has run well in the ACT Series posted some of the fastest times as well. 

The feature saw Helliwell Jr. on the poll, and Luke Hinkley of Claremont, NH started on the outside to start the race. The early part of the race saw Helliwell take an early lead for the first twenty laps of the race. Eventually Shaw would take the lead and hold it until lap 40 when the caution flew. Shaw and Hinkley made contact on the backstretch sending the 31NH car up the pit road in a wild ride with the car ending up on thp of the pit wall, ending his night early.

 On the restart Stone took the lead followed by Mike O’Sullivan of Springfield, MA. Shaw managed to fix his car and make his way back up the field, by lap 50 he was back in the top five. Barry Gray of Belchertown, MA the 2016 Granite State Pro Stock Series also managed to stay in the top five.

 In the ensuing laps O’Sullivan stayed close to Stone, however Helliwell was close behind, and passed O’Sullivan on lap 81 taking second. Helliwell made several bids to take the lead from Stone unsuccessfully as they crossed the finish line.   

Saturday, August 12th The Granite State Pro Stock Series will be racing at Monadnock Speedway, in Winchester, NH for the Monadnock 100. For more information, follow The Granite State Pro Stock Series on Facebook or at www.gspss.net
