Notes: Wednesday’s race will be the third annual U.S. Pro Stock / Super Late Model National Championship.  The first two events have featured thrilling racing, including a memorable finish to the inaugural race in 2016. A variety of tracks and series will be represented in the race including the Pro All Stars Series, Granite State Pro Stock Series, Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, Wiscasset Speedway and Seekonk Speedway, The race will consist of 200 green flag laps; however, there will be a break after Lap 100 for teams to make adjustments. Derek Griffith enters the event as the defending winner and the second-place finisher in the inaugural race. Joey Polewarczyk Jr. dominated the inaugural event before going up in flames in the closing laps.  He’ll be looking to score the win after also leading laps in last year’s race. Reid Lanpher, a recent PASS North winner at Beech Ridge, will also be among the favorites after running up front in the second half of last year’s Pro Stock Nationals. Seekonk weekly drivers such as Dave Darling, Bobby Pelland III and Ryan Vanasse will be looking to defend their home turf.
