Said Wrenn, “Jeff Zuidema made the suggestion to move the show to Claremont . We thought about it and decided to reach out to Jack. We will do everything we can for the competitior and fans . It’s unfortunate that we have been dealing with bad weather that has handicapped our plans but we’ll work with all involved and do everything we can.” 

Bateman was appreciative of the new track owners , Zuidema, and track manager Phil Hayes.  “ When I saw what was happening at Monadnock and what they are dealing with and the fact the series (VMRS ) is there a week after the opener , I never expected a makeup date . I am speaking for the whole series – we very grateful for their kind consideration.”

Seekonk, Mass. (May 1, 2019): The Tri-Track Modified Series (TTOMS) recently announced a change to the opening event of the 2019 season. While remaining over the holiday weekend, the second annual Claremont 100, originally scheduled for Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, will now be run on Sunday, May 26 at Claremont Speedway in Claremont, NH.

The purse for the Claremont 100 is over $50,000 with $7,000 to win, $1,200 to start and at least $500 to non-qualifiers. The 100-lap main event for the ground-pounding Modifieds will also feature round one of the Ron Bouchard’s Auto Stores Challenge Cup. The rain date for the event will be Memorial Day, Monday, May 27.

TTOMS management is in discussions with local track ownership on a special weekend promotion for race fans. Complete details will be forthcoming.

DJ Shaw returns to GSPSS Victory Lane!

WALPOLE N.H.

25 of the regions best pro-stock competitors strapped in this past Sunday evening at Claremont Speedway in Claremont, NH for the Rocky Ridge 150 and what a fantastic show it was. DJ Shaw of Center Conway, NH bested Jeremy Davis in a duel for the ages to take home the $3500 prize. “We made each other earn it, and it was one of the best duels I’ve ever had” Shaw said.

Finishing second, Jeremy Davis took lead the majority of the first 100 laps and if it were a normal distance race, he may have been the victor but, the car went away at the end. “I got to the lead and did my best to hold him off, but I think this was one of the best races here at Claremont Speedway in a long time” Davis said.

Holding the local banner high, Luke Hinkley of Claremont, NH finished third after time trialing first, taking the Asetex Tire and Auto pole award, and his heat race win. “My guys really came through this week as we worked on it 4 nights, this is all for them” Hinkley said.

The next closest local hero was Ricky Bly of Sunapee, NH whom finished 13th and was awarded the O’Reilly Auto Parts Hard Charger award as he improved his starting position 10 spots.

Series President Mike Parks and the GSPSS staff deemed the entire Rocky Ridge 150 event a success. “ As I reflect on what we were able to pull off Sunday night, all of us have to say a very hearty thank you to every race team and fan that came out to support the event” Parks said. “There were over 100 race cars in the pits and an amazing crowd with the show running without a hitch and we couldn’t have asked for anything better.”
