Busy Weekend On Tap For Derek Griffith

admin Articles

(Hudson, NH) – Derek Griffith Racing has a very busy weekend ahead, first the 18-year-old driver will try to maintain his slim Granite State Pro Stick Series (GSPSS) point lead as the series visit’s Monadnock Speedway for the first time in 2015. The turnaround will be quick as the team will also travel to the “Nation’s Site of Excitement”,  Barre, Vermont’s Thunder Road Speedbowl for the first-ever 150-lap Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model race.

Griffith currently is on a hot streak and the driver hopes to continue that at Monadnock, he goes on to explain, “We have a win and a second place finish to start the GSPSS season, another podium at Monadnock would be great. I know we’ll have the car to do it. My Crew Chief Louie [Mechalides] always has a great set-up for this bullring.”

Once the Monadnock 100-lap GSPSS is over, the Hudson, NH native will have to quickly travel back to the shop and load up the PASS Super Late Model and make the 2 hour trek up north to the legendary Thunder Road Speedbowl.

Derek talks about racing at Thunder Road, “This is going to be so awesome, I never thought I would see the day when both the American Canadian Tour and PASS would work together, I mean PASS at Thunder Road? How great is this? I’ve never raced there and hopefully I can steal some of the luck we had at Claremont, where we won and bring it up north.”

The No. 12, The Club/LCM Racing Toyota Camry last competed with PASS on May 9th where he finished in 12th place out of a very stout 30-car field at Star Speedway in Epping, NH.
