Super Stock competitor Tom Carey III, unofficially wrapped his title fifty point ahead of Dave Striebel as did Mini Stock competitor Mike Stebbins who is forty-four points ahead of former champion Chris McTaggart. Kyle Boniface also unofficially took the title for the Lightning Stocks. The Thunder Stock title is still up for grabs, Marshall Usher and Dave Greenslit will battle it out this Saturday with Greenslit trailing Usher by twenty-two points. The championship titles will be made official at the Super Saturday event on September 27th.
This weekend, Monadnock Speedway will be back in action hosting two events.
