GSPSS Adds Oxford Plains To 2017 Schedule
WALPOLE, N.H. – The Granite State Pro Stock Series announced another addition to the 2017 schedule this week. A stop at the three-eighths mile Oxford Plains Speedway will take place as part of the 44th annual Oxford 250 weekend. The race will be a 100-lap feature event on Saturday evening August 26th.
“Our goal is and always has been a 14-race schedule,” series president Mike Parks explained. “We usually don’t like to add an event once we start the season, but this is an exception.”
Davis Dominates GSPSS Opener at Lee
The 2016 Champion Barry Gray of Belchertown, MA, returned to Lee as did Rookie of the Year, Mike Mitchell of Cumberland, RI. The GSPSS Opener also saw rookies Luke Hinkley of Claremont, NH and Kyle Casagrande of Stafford Springs, CT throw their hats into the ring. Practice sessions on Saturday and Sunday saw Joe Squeglia of Derry, NH, David Darling of Seekonk, MA, and Luke Hinkley post the fast times.
Sunday’s race started with a shower making the surface slick and causing two cautions at the start of the race, and collecting a few cars in the process. However, when the green flew again, it was all Davis as he quickly took the lead from Devin O’Connell of Madison, CT. (more…)

WALPOLE, N.H. – After a long offseason away from the track, the Granite State Pro Stock Series is set to open the 11-race schedule on Sunday at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, N.H. with a 100-lap feature event.
The three-eighths mile oval has produced some intense action in the past when the GSPSS has visited and with this being the season-opener, drivers will be hoping to start the season in Victory Lane. Consistency will matter when it comes time to crown a champion in October – meaning every race counts – including the opener. Getting off to a good start could make a difference on someone’s season.

WALPOLE, N.H. – Heading into the 2017 Granite State Pro Stock Series season, Cory Casagrande is hoping to contend for the championship behind the wheel of his No. 7.
Last season, Casagrande finished fourth in the point standings while finishing a best of third at Monadnock Speedway early in the season.
Although the finale at New London-Waterford Speedbowl didn’t go his way, he was still able to capture a top five finish in points in just his second year in a Pro Stock.
WALPOLE, N.H. – With just three weeks remaining until the season-opening event for the Granite State Pro Stock Series, officials are working diligently behind the scenes to finish final preparations.
The 2017 season will be headlined by the New England Short Track Showdown at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on July 1, but will also include races on the short tracks of the New England region. This season is also expected to bring multiple new challengers to the table in hopes of capturing the title.
WALPOLE, N.H. – Even though the 2016 Granite State Pro Stock Series season finished just a few weeks ago at New London-Waterford Speedbowl, the GSPSS is already looking ahead to the 2017 campaign.
And with that, the series is proud to announce the first scheduled race for next season at Seekonk Speedway in Seekonk, Mass. The inaugural Seekonk 100 will take place on Saturday night June 24, 2017.
“We are extremely happy to be able to work with Seekonk Speedway to bring the GSPSS there for the 2017 season,” GSPSS president Mike Parks said. “Seekonk is the home of weekly Super Late Model racing in Southern New England. By adding the GSPSS to the schedule, it has the making of a super event. We have been talking to them for two years and we feel the timing is correct for 2017.”
