The Granite State Pro Stock Series visits Monadnock Speedway for the third race of its season Saturday night.

The Memorial Day 100 will be the seventh time the series has run at flat quarter-mile, and the track has produced three different winners in Barry Gray, Matt Frahm and Mike O’Sullivan.

Gray has a series-high three Monadnock victories. He is a former track champion at Monadnock in the Pro Stock division.

“I guess I like the bullrings and driving in traffic,” said Gray, of Belchertown, Mass. “You just need to run smooth, and keep it in one piece. To finish first, you must first finish.”

A driver having the best start of his Granite State Pro Stock Series career, Derek Griffith is carrying strong momentum into the Memorial Day 100. Griffith has two Top-2 finishes to begin the season, including a win at Claremont Speedway in the series’ most recent event. He also finished second at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in April.

The point leader entering the Memorial Day 100, Griffith is quick to give credit to his car owner, Louie Mechalides, and his crew.

“My plan is to push myself, and with my team behind me, I think we will come out very good this season,” Griffith said. “We just need to keep up the good work.”

Cory Casagrande returns to the series, and will attempt to make his fourth start on the tour. Casagrande is a former Stafford Motor Speedway Limited Late Model Champion and Late Model Rookie of the Year. Casagrande finished 12th in the JBH Memorial at Monadnock Speedway in 2014.

Also entered into the event are 2013 Champion Mike O’Sullivan and all-time series wins leader Matt Frahm.

Qualifying for the Memorial Day 100 begins at 6 p.m. Saturday.
