WINCHESTER, NH – One of the most special races on the Granite State Pro Stock Series schedule just became more interesting. An extra $8000 has been added to the JBH 100 at Monadnock Speedway (NH), set to run on August 8.
Vernon, VT’s Josh King, driver of the #21 Steve’s Septic / Tom Call Excavation Chevrolet, has organized to have the extra money added to the entire purse by selling laps to businesses, drivers, and fans of the series.
“People are excited about the purse money,” states King. “Tenth place will pay for your tires for this race, which is rare at this point in short track racing.”
The JBH 100 is named after one of the founders of the series, John Hoyt. Hoyt passed away before the series’ inception, but his memory still lives on with many of the drivers and staff of the Granite State Pro Stock Series.
King continues, “This race is important because it's the JBH 100. Although I didn't know him well, I know he is a lot of the reason this series was started. It's important to race in his memory.”
The entire purse, which will pay up to 24 cars, is $15,325, with the winner of the JBH 100 earning $3000 for their efforts. Second place will pay out $2000, with third receiving $1000. Tenth place pays $600, with drivers picking up $250 just for taking the green. (See attachment).
Lap sponsors of the event include, but are not limited to, J. Evans Construction, Tom Call Excavating, Alves Auto Body, and LCM Racing.
The JBH 100 takes place at the ¼-mile Monadnock Speedway, in Winchester, NH, on August 8. For more information, contact Mike Parks via email at [email protected]
