Eddie MacDonald Wins the Rain Delayed GSPSS at Thompson
For the second year in a row, Eddie Mac powered to victory in the Granite State Pro Stock Series 50 lap feature in the World Series of Racing at Thompson Motorsports Park on Saturday. Weather played a major role in the three day event washing out the Friday schedule forcing some creative rescheduling to combine two days into one.
MacDonald a winner again at Thompson’s World Series
The Granite State Pro Stock Series held a fifty lap event at Thompson Speedway this weekend, and to no one’s surprise it was “The Outlaw” Eddie MacDonald taking home the win. Macdonald is always a favorite at the 5/8 mile oval proved why once again.
Angelo Belsito defended his home track in dominant fashion going three for three in the 2019 D.A.V. Fall Classic. On a perfect day for racing, the Auburn MA driver was virtually just that in scoring his first D.A.V. as well as his first GSPSS victory.
The afternoon’s competition kicked off with the Crazy Horse Racing race for the pole and It was Belsito going out in the last group and jumping to the top of the board. Belsitos time of 12.377 seconds would give him the pole for the first of three heat races.
As racing season approaches, last minute preparations are what’s happening in the shops of the Granite State Pro Stock Series teams. With the first race less than a month away at Claremont Motorsports Park in NH, cars are being finished, trailers are being organized and haul trucks are being checked.
In Vernon VT Josh Kings pair of race cars are almost ready to hit the race track. “One more good day in the shop and we’ll be ready to go” said king while attending the Ice breaker at Thompson Speedway. “We’ll be ready to go for Claremont” he added. When asked about his 2019 plans he responded “we’ll see how the early part of the season goes and figure it out from there”. “If we’re running well we’ll run the full schedule”.
The Granite State Pro stock Series officially brought its season to a close on Saturday March 2 at the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park clubhouse. The season ending banquet of champions was a chance for the teams of the GSPSS to get together one last time as part of the 2018 season and honor their champion.
