WALPOLE, N.H. — Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS), Speed51 and Star Speedway officials announced on Tuesday that the GSPSS race at the Star Classic on Friday, September 17, will be part of Speed51’s Short Track American lineup on MAVTV.

As part of the three-day weekend at Star, the race will also air live to a national audience on Speed51.TV. The date for the enhanced broadcast on MAVTV will be announced at a later time, but it will include multiple different camera angles, on-board cameras and more.

“Putting the Granite State Pro Stock Series on a national broadcast on MAVTV has been something we have been working on doing for a while,” Mike Parks, President of the Granite State Pro Stock Series, said. “We’re excited to work with the entire team, including Speed51, MAVTV and the Webber family at Star Speedway. This will only help take the Star Classic to a higher-level and give our great drivers additional exposure.”

The GSPSS race will join the ISMA Supermodified 125-lap main as the two races from the Star Classic weekend on MAVTV. The Classic includes 14 different divisions with the Granite State Pro Stock Series headlining the Friday night program. Granite State will be joined by the EXIT Realty Pro Truck Series, Classic Lites, Street Stocks and Six Shooters.

Opportunities for sponsorship for the race are available through the Granite State Pro Stock Series. The Star Classic will be the second trip to the Epping, New Hampshire, oval for Granite State teams in 2021 — with the series also making an early-season stop on May 8.

“We’re excited to work with the Granite State Pro Stock Series and Star Speedway to bring this race to a national television audience,” Brandon Paul, Director of Content for Speed 51, said. “If last year’s race was any indication of what is to come in 2021, this will be an exciting race for fans to watch on Speed51’s Short Track America on MAVTV.

“Adding the Granite State Pro Stock Series to the MAVTV lineup for the Star Classic, joining the ISMA race, will help Star Speedway continue to showcase our great Classic weekend,” Bobby Webber, owner of Star Speedway, said. “The Classic weekend is already known as one of the top multi-day race events in New England every year, and getting our drivers some national exposure is important to us.”

The 2021 Granite State Pro Stock Series includes 15 events, spread across three different states and nine different New England race tracks. The series will visit Star Speedway twice during the year — May 8 & September 17.

Star Speedway’s 2021 schedule includes more than 20 events, including the Star Classic.

Jennifer Jo Cobb to make NASCAR Cup Series Debut at Talladega Superspeedway

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 13, 2021) – Jennifer Jo Cobb is set to make her NASCAR Cup Series debut at Talladega Superspeedway with Rick Ware Racing in the Geico 500.  Cobb will pilot the No.15 Arrowhead Brass Chevrolet. This will also be Arrowhead Brass’ debut into NASCAR racing.
Fastener Supply, a longtime supporter of Cobb, will likewise ride along with Jennifer as an associate sponsor at Talladega.

Jennifer Jo Cobb

Cobb, a Kansas City, Kansas native, has vast experience in the top-tier series of NASCAR with 216 races in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) and 31 NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) starts. She will now add the NASCAR Cup Series to that list. Last fall she shattered two records in one weekend by capturing a land speed record in a Cup car clocking in at over 223 mph on Friday afternoon and then making her way to the Talladega Superspeedway where she led 16-laps in the NCWTS race, becoming the female with the most laps led on an oval in any of NASCAR’s top series.

“I am grateful to have a new sponsor like Arrowhead Brass join in my excitement of having Jennifer Jo Cobb drive for RWR at Talladega Superspeedway,” commented team owner Rick Ware. “Being a female in a male dominated sport is not an easy task, especially for as long as Jennifer has been competing in NASCAR. I hope that she has a successful first NASCAR Cup Series debut and look forward to Arrowhead Brass making their NASCAR Sponsorship debut at Talladega as the primary sponsor on Jennifer’s car.”


“We at Arrowhead Brass are extremely proud to partner with RWR to sponsor the #15 car at Talladega. I believe that we share many values with the RWR organization, and it seems fitting that our first car sponsorship would also have a first time Cup Driver. We as an organization are extremely excited by the potential we see in participating and growing within the NASCAR community now and in the future”, said Jim Kapparos (Managing Director – M&S).

Our quality products can be found in national retail stores and plumbing supply wholesalers throughout the country.  For more information, visit www.arrowheadbrass.com


   “I am so thankful for this opportunity with RWR, and greatly appreciate Arrowhead Brass for coming on board to help make this happen.  It’s also exciting to have my longtime sponsor at Fastener Supply to extend their support as well.” said Cobb.   “I have a long history with RWR and a lot of respect for this organization,” said Cobb, who has owned her NCWTS #10 team for more than 10-years.  “This team has a lot of heart and reminds me a lot of my small team competing against such mammoth organizations.  I am proud of what RWR has accomplished and I want nothing more than to make the team, Arrowhead Brass, and all my sponsors and supporters proud of this effort.”


“We are honored to come alongside Jennifer Jo Cobb as she makes her NASCAR Cup Series debut with RWR at Talladega”, said Donnie Shrum, President of Fastener Supply Company. “During our time as primary sponsor for her NCWTS team, she has brought tremendous value to our company. I cannot think of anyone more deserving than Jen to get the chance for her first Cup start. We appreciate this opportunity that has been given to us by RWR and look forward to the race.”
