Epping, NH – As the year winds down, the goal for young racer Derek Griffith becomes clearer. The Hudson, NH native is looking to secure his first Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) Championship.This weekend the GSPSS will invade Star Speedway as part of the 50th Annual Star Classic and will stage a 100 lap event on Sunday September 12, 2015.
Griffith, the driver of the No. 12 MOM’s of Manchester/LCM Racing Toyota Camry leads the second place point runner of Barry Gray by 30 points entering the second to last points counting event. “We have two events left; we are very excited to be racing as part of the prestigious Star Classic this year. We always run well there. The last time we raced there, we grabbed a victory” Said Griffith.
That victory on June 27TH at Star Speedway by Derek was part of a hot streak that he series had never witnessed. It was Griffith’s third win in four events and really cemented his place as the point leader.
If Griffith is able to visit victory lane this weekend, it will catapult himself into a tie with Matt Frahm for the all-time series wins list with 5. The remarkable part of this story is that Griffith had never visited victory lane with the GSPSS prior to 2015.
The Star Classic takes place September 12 at Star Speedway. Gates open at 11AM, practice begins at 1PM, with qualifying scheduled to start at 4PM.
