NH -- The Granite State Pro Stock Series will make their second
attempt to run the John Hoyt Memorial JBH 100 on Saturday, September
8 at Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, NH. The event was rained out
after practice on August 4.
Hoyt was in the midst of forging the series with Mike Parks when he
unexpectedly passed away in July of 2011.
Bobby Cabral leads the Granite State Pro Stock Series into the JBH
100 as the series point leader. The East Kingston, NH veteran has
scored one win and top-five finishes in each of the series four
events in 2012 and holds a 22 point margin over Bobby Baillargeon.
Baillargeon, of Kingston, NH, scored his first career Granite State
Pro Stock Series win in the most recent race, held at Hudson
Speedway. The win allowed Baillargeon to shave nearly ten points off
of his deficit to Cabral.
Fifteen-year-old Derek Griffith earned a second place finish in his
first career Pro Stock start in the series first race at Monadnock
Speedway. Griffith, of Hudson, NH, currently sits six points out of
the fifth spot in the championship battle.
Rich Eaton of Seabrook, NH has earned two top-five finishes,
including a runner-up finish one race ago at Hudson Speedway, and
sits 26 points behind Cabral. Parks, of Walople, NH, sits fourth in
the series standings after he rebounded from engine issues at Star
Speedway to finish fifth at Hudson.
Former NASCAR New Hampshire State Champion and multi-time Monadnock
Speedway champion Barry Gray, of Belchertown, MA, sits fifth in the
series standings and will look to garner his first Granite State Pro
Stock Series win at his home track.
