(Hudson, NH) – Derek Griffith, the 18 year-old returned to Hudson with his family race team and dominated the Gate City Classic, in front of a great crowd at his hometown track on Sunday afternoon.
Griffith was one of sixteen Granite State Pro Stocks (GSPSS) to roll into town for this prestigious race. Following a redraw, Griffith started on the pole for this 100-lap event; at the drop of the green flag, Derek set a torrid pace and had the fans on the edge of their seats.
Derek quickly was pacing the field and led all but one lap enroute to his second GSPSS victory of the young season. An excited Griffith would say, after the race, “I’m shocked. I’m out of words. It’s awesome to finally come here and win a Pro Stock race. I’ve gotten a couple wins here in smaller cars, and finally to show them I’m a driver that can win some bigger races, I’m more than happy to do it here in front of my fans.”
“Derek drove the wheels off the MOM’s of Manchester/LCM Racing No. 12 Toyota tonight, exclaimed excited Father, John Griffith, it’s great to finally get a win here in his Pro Stock.”
Griffith was the GSPSS Point leader coming in to the race and will leave still garnering the top spot.
The Granite State Pro Stocks will be back in action on June 27, 2015 as they visit Star Speedway.
