Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) stop at Riverhead Raceway originally scheduled for Saturday July 30 will not be rescheduled.

The series stopped at the 1/4 mile bullring this past Saturday night July 30 and even though weather forecasts called for no rain throughout the entire week, Mother Nature hit hard with rain falling and forcing the cancellation of the nights action.

Though originally the series was going to return, the track and series officials decided it would be best to not — but also decided that the race will become an annual event for the future.

“The speedway and the GSPSS both wanted to do the same thing but it was a business decision for the long-term future of the event,” series President Mike Parks said. “We race this Friday and next Saturday, so we were concerned about the teams having three of four races right in a row. We felt it was the best business decision — we scraped it for this year and will reschedule for next year and make it work for the future.”

The next feature race scheduled for the GSPSS will be this Friday night at Claremont Speedway in Claremont, New Hampshire with the running of the Bond Auto 100. Then, the GSPSS will stop at Monadnock Speedway for the JBH 100 on Saturday August 13 will conclude the schedule for the month of August.

Wiscasset Speedway will play host to the series on Sept. 3-4 and Star Speedway will see a visit on Sept. 10. The champion will be crowned as part of New London-Waterford Speedbowl’s season-ending weekend on Oct. 22.
