Granite State Pro Stock Series to contest 10k to win Granite State Nationals
The Granite State Pro Stock Series will contest its highest paying event in series history on Labor Day Sunday at Claremont Motorsports Park. The winner of the Newport Chevrolet 150 will take home a cool ten thousand dollars for his efforts and the payout has been increased throughout the field.
“We have been working towards having a signature event for several years now and hope that this can become just that”, stated series president Mike Parks. “With the success of this race the last two years, we felt like it was the time to really step it up another notch”.
Ray Christian III comes into this event as the series point leader with a twenty six point advantage over Joey Polewarczyk in the series standings. Both drivers look forward to the challenge of managing the desire to take home the winner’s check vs the need to points race with a goal of winning the series championship.
Hebert Finally Breaks Through at Oxford to Extend ACT Point Lead
Oxford, ME — Williamstown’s Jimmy Hebert finished a job he had come close to so many times before by winning the Oxford Plains 150 at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway on Sunday, August 30. Hebert took the lead for good from Turner, ME’s Ben Rowe with 57 laps to go and was never seriously threatened from there on his way to becoming the first repeat winner of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) season.
For Hebert, it was a victory that had been within reach on multiple occasions prior to Sunday. In nine previous starts at Oxford, he had posted six top-5 finishes with a pair of runner-up results. His elusive first win at the historic 3/8-mile track also put him in the driver’s seat for his first ACT championship with three point-counting events remaining.
Kruczek Wires the Field for Leavitt Memorial 150 Win at Riverside
Groveton, NH — Newmarket, NH’s Bryan Kruczek could not be stopped on his way to a wire-to-wire win in the Gardiner & June Leavitt Memorial 150 at Groveton, NH’s Riverside Speedway on Saturday, August 15. The veteran held off a fierce challenge from ACT point leader Jimmy Hebert down the stretch to take the victory and become the fifth different winner in five American-Canadian Tour (ACT) events this season.
Kruczek, who had gotten off to a tough start in his first full ACT Late Model Tour season, earned the pole for the main event under ACT’s unique “plus-minus” system. However, it was no walk in the park for Kruczek and his Bobby Webber Jr. Racing team. First, the polesitter had to face the heat from defending Pro All Stars Series Champion D.J. Shaw of Center Conway, NH.
Coming into the 2020 season champion Spencer Morse was looking forward to another great point’s battle to defend his 2019 Title. A string of bad luck resulting in several poor finishes has mired Morse nearly 100 points out coming into Saturdays Lee’s Family Trailer Sales Pass Mod 50. That luck seems to have finally turned as Morse scored his second win of the year Sunday at Oxford Plains Speedway.
Morse who started the feature in the seventh spot was able to capitalize on other competitor’s misfortune to quickly move his way to the front. Before lap 6 Morse overtook early leader Milo Washer to put the #34 out front for good. More, however, didn’t have it as easy as it sounds. A pair of cautions erased sizable leads forcing Morse to defend his lead throughout the contest. Morse was dogged by a very fast Ryan Ripley over the last dozen laps before beating him across the line by a car length to keep his championship hopes alive.
