Barker Steels the show at Oktoberfest!

WALPOLE, NH.

After a three and a half hour rain delay paired with a race length adjustment to 75 laps, Brandon Barker of Berwick, ME prevailed. Starting seventh on the field Barker made his way up through eventually battling with pole sitter Mike O’Sullivan of Springfield, MA. “O’Sullivan is a good racer, I’ve watched these guys enough to know who you can race with” Barker said. “We beat and banged a bit, nobody crashed and it was fun.”

Todd Stone of Middlebury, VT was earned the O’Reilly Auto Parts Hard Charger award as he started ninth on the field and drove the #1x machine up to second place. One time taking O’Sullivan and Barker three wide on the backstretch, Stone backed out as the moisture from the earlier rain hadn’t completely left the surface and the extreme lower and upper grooves were slick.

The final restart was adjusted to single file formation as previous double file attempts were to no avail and time was at a premium. This didn’t play into Mike O’Sullivan’s hand as the pole sitter and leader of over 60 laps was eventually shuffled back to third. Still a strong result after early season woes for O’Sullivan.

Jimmy Renfrew Jr of Candia, NH finished a hectic fourth as he was doing double duty driving his street stock as well. Finishing fifth and extending his points lead Devin O’Connell of Madison, CT was at the top of the charts all day and was incredibly consistent. O’Connell finished two positions ahead of second in points Joey Doiron of Berwick, ME who ended up seventh.

The battle between O’Connell and Doiron will stay alive at Thompson Speedway Motorsports park as many feel the high speed 5/8ths mile venue is a wild card on the circuit.Our next event is Friday, October 12th on opening day of the World Series weekend at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Thompson, CT

GRANITE STATE PRO STOCK SERIES READIES FOR LEE USA SPEEDWAY

WALPOLE, NH.

The regions best pro stock drivers will piloting their machines around the 3/8 mile surface of Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH this Sunday, October 7th for the second and final time of the 2018 season. The GSPSS presented by Springfield Buick GMC will be headlining the final day of Oktoberfest with a 100 lap feature paired with the MRS Modified series Twin 50’s.

Two Jeremy’s, Harclerode and Davis will be back with GSPSS to improve their finishing positions and may be seen battling for the victory Sunday evening. Harclerode of Newmarket, NH had an impressive showing starting 11th in the feature fighting his way up to second back in July. Always a favorite at Lee USA Speedway Jeremy Davis of Tamworth, NH is looking for his first victory of the 2018 season, time may be running out for the result Davis wants but be sure to keep an eye on the #09 Sunday afternoon.

Coming off his second victory of the 2018 season Devin O’Connell of Madison, CT has showed incredible speed and consistency. Leading the points by 16 over Joey Doiron of Berwick, ME, O’Connell has a tough road to hoe over the next three events but should have podium speed notes from his third place finish back in July.

Joey Doiron of Berwick, ME will be coming back to Lee USA Speedway looking for redemption. Leading by over a straightaway in July, Doiron came into a river of oil from a failing car and destroyed the #73 in the turn one wall. Anything but a win Sunday afternoon will be an unacceptable result for Doiron.

O’Connell Scores win number two of 2018!

WALPOLE N.H

Saturday night at Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, NH Devin O’Connell of Madison, CT set the pace after a caution on lap 4 and led the remaining 96 green flag laps of the JBH 100 and took his second victory of the 2018 season. O’Connell had intense pressure from the #1x of Todd Stone from Middlebury, VT. O’Connell and Stone battled fiercely through lapped traffic, allowing one of the local favorites Mike O’Sullivan of Sixteen Acres, MA to catch up to the top two.

“This victory means so much to our small team” O’Connell said. “Finishing 9th in the past two races, we went through the entire car to make sure we wouldn’t have a similar result, and the hard work paid off as tonight the car was an absolute rocket ship.” “It feels so good to get back in victory lane especially after such a tough but clean race with Todd Stone, I’m just so glad we were able to take home the checkered flag today.”

At the top of the charts all day during practice and time trials, Todd Stone used some of his dirt track experience as he was sideways, three wide early on the bottom of a battle between Barry Gray and Ray Christian III. “It’s been a challenging year on the dirt side, we’ve lost 3 motors this season, so we were really looking for a solid result tonight” Stone said. “I think we had a good car, and if the top two positions were reversed I don’t think we could have passed each other. I could have dumped O’Connell but I don’t race like that, it was nice to come home second.”

One of the local favorites Mike O’Sullivan started deep in the field in 10th position, with 25 laps to go, O’Sullivan was touching bumper covers with second place Todd Stone, an impressive run for sure. “A restart would have been good in the later stages but, it would have been tough either way” O’Sullivan said. “It was an awesome race to be part of, thats the way it’s supposed to look and we should all be proud of the show we put on.”

Second in points Joey Doiron of Berwick, ME had a solid race finishing fourth and last seasons JBH 100 winner Josh King of Vernon, VT rounded out the top 5.

The next event is on Sunday of Oktoberfest Weekend, at Lee USA Speedway October 7th.
