SCARBOROUGH, Maine — The story heading into Saturday’s Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) event at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway was about whether or not the local Pro Stock regulars could compete with the series regulars and come out on top.


After 150 laps of tough racing around the flat Maine oval, local track regulars proved to be the dominant force. David Oliver passed local favorite Joe Pastore with less than 40 laps to go and drove away to his first career Granite State Pro Stock Series victory. Pastore crossed the line 1.428 seconds back in the runner-up spot, while Rusty Poland, another local favorite, was third. Garrett Hall was fourth and Bobby Webber Racing driver Bryan Kruczek fifth.

WALPOLE, N.H. — When the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) rolls into Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 12, track regulars are set to compete with GSPSS stars in what should be another classic battle in Maine.

Last year, more than 25 cars showed to the track — with track regular Wyatt Alexander stealing the show and scoring the victory with late drama — passing for the lead and the win in the final 20 laps. He may have made the finish look easy on track, but his first touring series win didn’t come without some mid-week drama.

Alexander’s drivetrain broke in a Beech Ridge weekly Pro Stock race just seven days prior — and he wasn’t even planning on running with Granite State until just a few days before race day.

WALPOLE, N.H. — With three races complete, the Granite State Pro Stock Series is set to return to Claremont Motorsports Park on Sunday, May 30, celebrating Memorial Day weekend with a 100-lap Pro Stock special. The tricky New Hampshire oval will host three of the 15 events on the series schedule this season — meaning those who hope to be in championship contention will need to get a handle on it quickly.

Entering the race, there have been three different winners in the first three races of the season. Joey Pole opened the year with a dominating victory at Stafford Motor Speedway, while Angelo Belsito stormed to Victory Lane in race two at Monadnock Speedway. Last time out, Bryan Kruczek drove the Bobby Webber Racing No. 19 into Victory Lane at his home track, Star Speedway. The entry list for Sunday’s spectacular includes a mix of former series champions, rising stars and series veterans.

GRANITE STATE PRO STOCK SERIES RETURNS TO STAR SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY

WALPOLE, N.H. — Granite State Pro Stock Series race teams are heading to Star Speedway in Epping, New Hampshire, for the third race of the season on Saturday, May 8. Coming off successful events at Stafford Motor Speedway and Monadnock Speedway — won by Joey Pole and Angelo Belsito — the series hits the New Hampshire oval for the Hedges Excavating 100 for the first of two visits in 2021. The second visit will come on Friday, September 17, as part of the annual Star Classic. 

If the finish to the Star Classic 100 last year is any indication, the Pro Stock battle should be one to remember. Former series champions Pole and Derek Griffith battled side-by-side for the final 10 laps in the race last September, and Pole is heading back to Star looking to make it two-for-two. Pole didn’t compete at Monadnock, but picked up the win at Stafford on April 24.

ANGELO BELSITO EARNS GRANITE STATE PRO STOCK SERIES WIN AT MONADNOCK

WINCHESTER, N.H. — Round two of the Granite State Pro Stock Series season brought competitors to the high-banks of Monadnock Speedway, and it was multiple-time series winner Angelo Belsito clicking off another checkered flag.

Belsito and the rest of the field competed in three, 20-lap segment races in place of a 100-lap feature — and the final finishing order for the race was determined based on a points system. The winner of each segment earned one point, while second-place earned two points, third earned three, and so on, throughout the field. The driver with the lowest number of points at the end of the three — Belsito — was declared the overall winner of the day. Devin O’Connell was second and Gabe Brown third.

Belsito won the first two segments and was the runner-up in the final round. O’Connell finished fourth in the first race, then second and first.
