(N. Woodstock, NH) – The Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) travels to White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) on Saturday August 1st and point leader No. 12 Derek Griffith is chomping at the bit.
Griffith, the 18 year-old, Hudson, NH native likes how the GSPSS cars react to the ¼-mile bullring at WMMP. “I love the way our No. 12 MOM’s of Manchester/LCM Racing/FEP Insurance Toyota Camry handled up there last year. You can carry a lot of speed through the corners, which makes for fast, tight racing” said Derek.
This is the 8th of 12 races for the Granite State Pro Stock Series and Griffith raced his way to a fourth place finish at WMMP in last year’s event.
Derek talks about this year’s event “We would love to get our fourth win of the year at WMMP. I know Louie [Crew Chief Louie Mechalides] has a good set-up for us. I mean we finished fourth in our first ever trip up here, last year and I think with the way our team is working together, a win is certainly possible.”
Griffith comes in to the WMMP event as the season-long point leader and Derek talks about having to resort to a new motor “We brought a new motor to Lee [Lee Speedway, Seacoast 100] because of the engine failure we had at Speedway 51 a few weeks earlier. Louie dialed it in and we were able to grab a second place, the car was strong and seemed to like the long green-flag runs.”
Come out to White Mountain Motorsports Park and see Derek and the Granite State Pro Stock Series in action this Saturday August 1st. The post time is 6 pm.
