Hudson, NH- Brad Babb fended off threats from Barry Gray and Matt Frahm to claim the victory in the Hudson Hugger at Hudson International Speedway, recording his first victory with the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS).
Adam Norton led the field to green in his second race for the series in 2014, with Babb starting to his outside. Babb would nudge ahead to lead the first lap, eventually clear Norton, and begin to pull away from the field. Bobby Baillargeon, who was looking to grab his third straight Hudson Hugger win, bounced off the front stretch wall on lap 9, bringing out the first of six cautions of the day. Babb jumped to the lead once more, as a good battle between Frahm, Gray, Dillon Moltz, and Derek Griffith brewed behind him. Griffith’s day would begin to turn sour as his LCM/FEP Insurance Toyota brought out the caution on lap 37. Multiple tries to complete the lap ensued, but the caution flew two more times, including a chain-reaction incident which sent Moltz down pit road, before the field settled in for another green flag run.
