Derek Griffith Is Ready For The Challenge This Friday At Claremont Speedway

Claremont, NH – Derek Griffith, the young, talented Pro-Stock driver from New Hampshire will be making his Claremont Speedway debut this Friday, April 24th as the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) makes its return to the 1/3 mile facility for 125 green flag laps.

Formally known as Twin State Speedway, Claremont is under new ownership for 2015 and is ready to set the stage for what should be an exciting event.

Griffith will be entering Claremont not knowing anything about the race track, “I don’t think I’ve ever been there, maybe when I was a little kid but I can’t remember” remarked Derek.

“This will be exciting for our MOM’s of Manchester/LCM Racing crew as Louie [Crew Chief Louie Mechalides] doesn’t even have any set-up sheets for Claremont. I think it’ll be a learning experience, that’s for sure.”

Griffith finished in second place for the opening GSPSS race from Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on April 12th, still looking for his first win, Derek thinks he’s on the cusp of bringing the No. 12 Toyota Camry to victory lane. “I really think our time is coming. All the pieces are finally coming together and our crew is starting to get some real time together and I think, in order to win on almost any level you need a consistent team effort, we’ll get there.” said Derek.

The GSPSS 125-Lap event is scheduled for Friday, April 24th with a post time of 7:30pm.
