Barry Gray Seals First Career GSPSS Championship

WALPOLE, N.H. — A few weeks ago at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl, Barry Gray climbed out of his No. 29 at the end of the 75 lap feature race and raised his fist in the air as the champion of the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS).

Gray has been a part of the GSPSS for years and has been strong before, but this season, it all came together for the Belchertown, Mass. native. He went into the season finale at the Speedbowl with a 26 point lead over D.J. Shaw and when Shaw had trouble, all Gray had to do was finish right where he was.

A fourth place finish was enough to add another championship trophy to the mantle for Gray. Though he hadn’t become champion with the GSPSS until this season, he is a former champion at Riverside Park and a multiple time champion at Monadnock Speedway in New Hampshire.

When it was all set and done, Farrington was celebrating in victory lane on Saturday night after capturing his first GSPSS victory of the season.

WALPOLE, N.H. — After an enduring season of racing across the New England region, the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) is set to crown the 2016 champion this Saturday, Oct. 22., at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

The 3/8 mile Shoreline oval will play host to the Super Late Model Series in a 75 lap main event that will decide a championship battle that currently has two veterans at the top.

Squeglia Survives Star Classic

Race winner Joe Squeglia of Derry, NH set the pace early on earning the fastest time in the first practice. Derek Griffith of Hudson, NH set the pace in second practice with Squeglia close behind.

The only hiccup in the heats came in the third heat when Steve Murphy of Tewksbury, MA and George Bessette made contact in turn four. Bessette cut a tire and Murphy made contact with the wall, starting a long night for his crew.

In the feature Bobby Cabral of Kingston, NH started on the pole with Squeglia on the outside. Points leader Barry Gray started 16th, and DJ Shaw who came into the race only four points behind started ninth. Squeglia started the race taking an early lead and holding it for the first ten laps until Derek Griffith of Hudson, NH was able to pass him.

GSPSS Stop at Riverhead Will Not Be Rescheduled

WALPOLE, N.H. — Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) stop at Riverhead Raceway originally scheduled for Saturday July 30 will not be rescheduled.

The series stopped at the 1/4 mile bullring this past Saturday night July 30 and even though weather forecasts called for no rain throughout the entire week, Mother Nature hit hard with rain falling and forcing the cancellation of the nights action.

Though originally the series was going to return, the track and series officials decided it would be best to not — but also decided that the race will become an annual event for the future.

“The speedway and the GSPSS both wanted to do the same thing but it was a business decision for the long-term future of the event,” series President Mike Parks said. “We race this Friday and next Saturday, so we were concerned about the teams having three of four races right in a row. We felt it was the best business decision — we scraped it for this year and will reschedule for next year and make it work for the future.”

Davis Dominates at Speedway 51

The Granite State Pro Stock Series made the long haul to Speedway 51 in Groveton, NH this Fourth of July weekend. Although DJ Shaw of Center Conway, NH looked like the driver to beat with lap times of 12.7 in practice and the heats, it was Jeremy Davis of Tamworth, NH who walked away with a first place trophy Saturday night.

Mike Parks of Walpole, NH started on the pole, and was fast all afternoon posting the second fastest lap time behind Shaw. Last week’s winner Jeremy Davis started on the outside pole. Davis secured the lead immediately. Lap four saw the one and only caution of the night when area racer Ben Belanger of Whitefield, NH spun in turn two.

After the restart, the race belonged to Davis. Shaw fought early on to capture the lead, however, Davis seemed to be in his own zip code all night. On lap 33 Parks came out of turn four loose and looked like he was going to spin but managed to save it on the front stretch, the other cars managing to get around him without incident.
