Bonus Money Added to Bemer’s Big Show 150

GSPSSWATERFORD, CT – The Granite State Pro Stock Series’ finale at New London-Waterford Speedbowl will have an added twist, as The Racing Guys have put up extra money for drivers competing in the Bemer’s Big Show 150.

An extra $1100 will be up for grabs to Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) drivers, courtesy of the organizers of the Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS).

The winner of the Bemer’s Big Show 150, the final championship event of the season, will receive an extra $200 in their paycheck.  The remaining $900 will be split by the top five Seekonk Speedway and Riverhead Raceway drivers in the field.

TTOMS promoter James Schaefer continued, “I’m a Riverhead [Raceway] guy, and Dick Williams has a special place for Seekonk [Speedway] in his heart, so this will be a little fun for us.”

Seekonk Speedway and Riverhead Raceway regulars that pre-enter for the Bemer’s Big Show 150 will be eligible for the bonus money.  The highest-finishing driver of the eligible entrants will receive $300, with the second driver taking home an extra $225.  The third eligible driver will pick up $150, while the fourth will receive $125, and the fifth driver earning $100.

Schaefer explained, “We wanted to give a little motivation to drivers to compete at a place that isn’t their home track, to play out of their sandbox.”

The Bemer’s Big Show 150 will crown the 2015 Granite State Pro Stock Series Champion at New London-Waterford Speedbowl, on October 24.  To register for the event, or for more information on the Granite State Pro Stock Series, contact Mike Parks via email, mparks@gspss.net.NLW-rev-slider-logo

Different Format On Tap For Tri Track Series October New London Waterford Event

IMG_6303LONG ISLAND, N.Y. — Official Tri Track series release

All the marbles will be on the line at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl when the Northeast Race Cars and Parts Tri Track Open Modified Series concludes an action packed weekend on October 25.

Unlike the four races prior in 2015, the series season finale will be a non-points event. At the Speedbowl in September, Matt Hirschman was crowned the 2015 Tri Track Series champion after finishing on the podium in the Dunleavy’s 100.

This event will also hold a completely different format than any of the other four races this season. There will be no short distance heat races followed up by consolation races and a B-main feature. Instead, this event will be started with two 35 lap “qualifying feature’s” that will determine who will advance into the big show.

The series will use a blind draw to line up the twin 35 lap feature’s, splitting the car count exactly in half. For example, if forty cars show up at the Speedbowl on that Sunday, twenty will be in the first feature and twenty will be in the second feature.

From there, the top eleven finishers in each one will transfer into a 65 lap, $5,000 to win main event. The 65 lap feature that will conclude the afternoon will include 22 drivers, plus up to four provisional spots that could be added by series officials.

Payout for the 35 lap qualifying races:

$3,000
$2,000
$1,500
$1,000
$800
$700
$650
$600
$550
$500
$450
$400
13-24 in the qualifying races will pay $400.

Payout for the 65 lap feature:

$5,000
$3,000
$2,500
$2,000
$1,500
$1,000
$800
$700
$600
$500
$400
Series officials will also award a $200 bonus for 34 teams that competed at the Lee USA Speedway and Monadnock Speedway events earlier in the season.

Also in attendance on the Sunday afternoon will be New London-Waterford Speedbowl Mini Stocks, who will hold a 50 lap feature event. The $2,000 to win “Battle of the Sound,” for the Legend Cars, will also be 50 laps in distance. The series wishes to thank all of the fans, drivers, teams, sponsors and officials for the support during the 2015 racing season.
