(Hudson, NH) – On Sunday, June 15, 2014, the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) visits one of the oldest tracks that the 3 year-old series races at, Hudson International Speedway.

 

This is also a homecoming of sorts for local driver of the No. 12 MOM’s of Manchester/LCM Racing Toyota Camry, Derek Griffith.

 

The 17 year-old Griffith cut his teeth at the ¼-mile oval by competing in many of the lower divisions that Hudson had to offer; often winning, week-in and week-out. All while preparing Derek to race the Pro Stocks that he does today.

 

Derek stated, “I love this place, Hudson is special to me as I grew up close by and we really have great memories here. We came home in second-place the last time the GSPSS raced here; I wouldn’t mind advancing one more spot.”

 

So far in 2014, Griffith sits fourth in the season points, just 32 points from the leader [Larry Gelinas]. Derek knows how to get around Hudson as good, if not better than most of the competitors and Griffith feels this gives him a great opportunity, going in to the Gate City Classic 100.

 

“I’ve turned as many laps here as anybody that will be racing with us this weekend and I think this gives our Tyngsboro Motors/Maclellan Metal Finishing Toyota a great chance, going in to this race; as long as we are able to stay out of trouble, I am expecting very good things”

 

The post time for the 2014 Granite State Pro Stock Gate City Classic 100 is 4 pm.
