Rolling into the World Series at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on Friday, October 12th the Granite State Pro Stock Series feature will be 50 laps and is the second to last race of the 2018 season.

Coming back to his home state for the final two races of the season, Devin O’Connell of Madison, CT is in the points lead by 20 over Joey Doiron of Berwick, ME.

O’Connell will certainly be working towards a better finish then 14th at last seasons event as the series championship is within his grasp with stout competition close behind.

Nipping on the heels of third place in points is Ray Christian III of Groton, CT just 37 points behind.

Christian III has experience in a pro stock and a late model at the .625 oval you have to respect the place like it’s NHMS” Christian III said. “As soon as you get comfortable, bad things can happen.”

The defending champion of this event in 2017 is making his return to the World Series.

Derek Ramstrom of Worcester, MA is coming back home. “I really love this place and I miss racing here weekly” Ramstrom said. “I grew up right over at Little T Speedway, and have been watching people race here a long time.”

    Oxford Plains has a big race weekend going against the world series? I thought traditionally New England tracks didn’t compete with Thompson this weekend.

    I think it’s about the only series northeast series that isn’t running at Thompson this weekend; PASS. That might be why the GSPSS is running Friday. They still have the option to run Oxford.

  3. The only divisions you would really have a conflict with between Oxford and Thompson are the PASS SLM’s and GSPSS. But there are plenty of those cars to around for both races. Plus, not a lot of drivers entered at Oxford would run a Friday night GSPSS race at Thompsons even if Oxford was not running. The bigger actual conflict now is that Lee had their Oktoberfest scheduled against the DAV at Seekonk traditional date. That probably hurt the Pro Stock, Late Model, and Street Stock counts at both places.

  4. Fast Eddie says

    The only class that might have had an issue is the Late Models. Lee didn’t run pro Stocks and street stocks were run on Sunday.
