WALPOLE, N.H. — Granite State Pro Stock Series officials announced on Thursday a 15-race schedule for the 2021 race season. The slate will bring drivers to three different New England states — while visiting eight different tracks in one of the most complete schedules the series has ever offered for teams and fans.
The calendar is headlined by the annual Newport Chevrolet 150 at Claremont Motorsports Park, this time on Saturday, July 31 — a $10,000 to win show that is sure to draw the top Super Late Model talent in the region. The series will also make a debut at one of New England’s most historic tracks and return to multiple staple facilities, with a mix of flat and banked tracks planned.
“We’re thrilled with the way our schedule came together for the 2021 season,” Mike Parks, president of the Granite State Pro Stock Series, said. “We always strive to get 14-16 races and we were able to accomplish it again. We think our competitors and fans will enjoy it.”
The season starts with the big debut in Connecticut. Granite State teams will compete at Stafford Motor Speedway for the first time as part of the annual NAPA Spring Sizzler weekend on Saturday, April 24 — a one-day show. Pro Stocks are no stranger to the Arute-owned facility — having run as a weekly division for decades — but now, the touring stars will invade to compete with some of the local talent that are sure to find themselves a ride.
“To say we are thrilled to finally bring the Granite State Pro Stock Series to Stafford would be an understatement,” Parks said. “This will be the icing on the cake to kick-off the Greatest Race in the History of the Spring, the annual NAPA Spring Sizzler. It’s going to be an amazing event for our series and the track both.”
Following Stafford, just one week later, Monadnock Speedway will host their first of two series events on Sunday afternoon, May 2 as part of their season-opening Spring Dash weekend. Post-time for this event is 2 p.m., with the NHSTRA Modifieds, NELCAR Legends and more also on the card. A second stop at “Mad Dog” is slated for Saturday, September 4 as part of Labor Day weekend at the Winchester, New Hampshire, oval.
The series heads to Bobby Webber’s Star Speedway for the first of two stops on Saturday night, May 8, before a return to the Star Classic weekend on Friday, September 17 comes in the thick of the championship battle. Last year, Derek Griffith and Joey Pole put together one of the best races in series history as part of the Classic at Star, which has become a staple track for the series.
Claremont Motorsports Park hosts their first of three dates on Memorial Day weekend as a Sunday evening special, May 30. Following the $10,000 to win Newport Chevrolet 150 in July, an event won by Derek Griffith last year, the champion will be crowned at Claremont for the first time on October 16 as part of the track’s Fall Challenge weekend.
Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Maine will hold two Granite State events for the first time in track history — with stops set for June 12 and August 14. Last year, the series hosted more than 30 cars as a mix of regulars and track favorites competed for glory in the inaugural stop at Beech Ridge — a race won by Wyatt Alexander.
“We had so much success with our first appearance at Beech Ridge last year, the car count was fantastic and Andy and the staff there welcomed us and our teams for a great event,” Parks said. “Going there twice should give us much of the same we saw in 2020.”
Additional summer events include the annual stop at Riverside Speedway in Groveton, New Hampshire, on June 19 and the Sunday afternoon spectacular at Hudson Speedway on Sunday, July 11. Granite State teams will also stop at Lee USA Speedway twice — both at some of the track’s most historic race weekends. The first comes on Friday, July 2, celebrating Independence Day — and the second will be on Sunday, October 3 as part of the season-ending Octoberfest.
There is one event that remains outstanding on the series schedule — dated for Saturday, July 24 — which is on track to be announced soon. Series officials are working on the final details surrounding that event and will announce once available.
The Granite State Pro Stock Series will have further updates surrounding the 2021 season when available. For more information, visit gspss.net and follow the series on social media.
