Granite State Pro Stock Series Returns to Monadnock Speedway

WALPOLE, N.H. __

After a thrilling finish to the season-opening race at White Mt. Motorsports Park last weekend, won by Jacob Dore, the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) is ready for race two at Monadnock Speedway — this Saturday, May 28.

The running of the Rydemore.com 100 lap feature will be contested on the high-banks of “Maddog,” a track that has proven to have intense Super Late Model action for the series each time they make the trip.

Barry Gray, who finished second at the opener last weekend, is the defending winner of the Memorial Day weekend special and a four-time winner with the series on the high-banks.

“At Monadnock, there is a lot of passing and a lot of good, hard racing,” Gray said. “So many guys can show up and win there, it’s a really fun track to get around. Monadnock was my hometrack, so for me, there’s a little bit of that hometrack advantage.”

Other formers winners with the series at Monadnock include Matt Frahm and Mike O’Sullivan. Mike will attempt to capture another checkered at Monadnock Saturday, as will multiple other series competitors. The series welcomes Feura Bush, N.Y. driver Michael Scorzelli to the roster, along with many of the drivers who ran the opening race at White Mt., like Cory Casagrande and Mike Mitchell.

Race sponsor Rydemore Heavy Duty Truck Parts Inc., located in Fitchburg, Mass., is one of the largest heavy duty used demanufacturing facilities specializing in quality used parts for commercial trucks, class 7-8. Fans can visit them on the web at www.rydemore.com.

The winner of the feature event will also have a guaranteed spot in the open competition Seekonk Speedway 200 lap Pro Stock feature race scheduled for July 13. The race is being promoted by Gary Sagar and Kraze Krolacki Speed Equipment, located in Seekonk, Mass. and is expected to draw drivers from all across the East Coast, meaning a guaranteed spot could be crucial to success.

Joining the series at Monadnock will be the Sportsman Modifieds, Super Stocks, Mini Stocks, Lightning Stocks, Thunder Stocks and Young Guns — all of the regular NASCAR divisions at the 1/4 mile oval. Heat races begin at 6 p.m., with feature racing to immediately follow.

Admission to the pit area is $35 and general admission tickets to the grandstands are $20, with those 12 years and younger free of charge to watch all the action.

Tri Track: Northeast Race Cars Back As Title Sponsor for 2016

LONG ISLAND, N.Y. __

The Tri Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) may not have any racing on the track until June 11, but behind the scenes, things are well underway.

The series would like to officially welcome Northeast Race Cars and Parts back as the title sponsor for the 2016 season. The company sponsored the series for 2015 and will return, bringing their parts truck to each of the events as well. Also, Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists will return as the sponsor for the 2016 point fund, which begins at Monadnock Speedway on June 11.

The point fund will pay $1,500 to the winner, just like last season, and will also pay all the way down to 20th place in the standings ($300). Even though the series has five total races and all of them will count for points, the “tri” will be kept in mind. Only a drivers top three finishes will count towards the final standings. For example, if a driver finishes 3-5-6-7-3 during the five races, the finishes of 6 & 7 will be dropped.

New to the series for 2016 will be the “hard charger” and “hard luck” awards during each of the five races. Bryan Sherwood and Sherwood Racing Products will sponsor the award and any driver who was pre-registered for the season will be eligible to collect the hardware. The driver who leads the most laps in each feature will be given the “hard charger” award and will receive a $60 gift certificate from Sherwood Racing Products.

The “hard luck” award will go to the pre-registered driver who just falls short of qualifying for the main event. They will also receive a $60 certificate from Sherwood Racing Products.

The series welcomes 12 different associate sponsors for the 2016 season, helping in a variety of ways — all of which crucial to the success of each specific race. Robert B. Our Company Inc., Nocella Reclamation & Grading and Advanced Gas Distributor lead the list.

Bridgewater/Raynham Overhead Door (Joe Duarte) and Propane Plus (Tim Johnson) and Seekonk Grand Prix (Wayne Darling) are welcomed back as the sponsors for the Seekonk Speedway $10,000 to win event on June 29, as well as the entire season.

For all their racing needs, teams can visit Hoosier Tire East and Sunoco Race Fuels, two more associate sponsors. If traveling to the races from a distance, fans can get an RV from Fuller RV Rental and Sales, or can stay at the Red Roof Inn hotel. Lastly, the series wishes to thank Doug Dunleavy and Dunleavy Truck and Trailer Repair for his support of the series and modified racing. Lauber Greco Gilbert Bialo Tribute is also on board for the season.

On Saturday June 11, the series kicks off with a 100 lap feature event at Monadnock Speedway, in loving memory of Ron Bouchard. Multiple people have come on board as a “friend of Ron Bouchard” and put up a $250 sponsorship towards the event. The series wishes to thank Greg Narducci, Coastline Fire Protection, Fuller Car Wash, The Williams Family, Red Roof Inn and Fuller Mobile Homes for coming on board at Monadnock.

There is also a “Circle of Friends,” with sponsorship for the New London-Waterford Speedbowl events and the race at Star Speedway, the SBM.

The 2016 season includes races at Monadnock (June 11), Seekonk (June 29), Star (July 30) and two at New London-Waterford Speedbowl (Aug. 25 & Oct. 23). T-shirts and hats are available for purchase at this point and laps are being sold for all five events.

Teams are encouraged to start ordering tires for Monadnock with Dan at Hoosier Tire East.
