The 3/8 mile, semi-banked oval has always been a favorite with racers, and now the Granite State Pro Stock Series will be a part of the track’s storied history. The usual suspects have already entered the Seacoast 100, including Derek Griffith, Matt Frahm, Larry Gelinas, the O’Sullivan brothers, Barry Gray, Dillon Moltz, and Brad Babb, and are joined by drivers like George Helliwell, Bobby Cabral, Babe Branscombe, and Joey Squeglia. Squeglia had set fast time in practice at the Star 100 at Star Speedway just a few weeks ago, but suffered bad luck in the feature, leaving the Derry, NH driver without the results he deserved.

BREWERTON, NY- July 19, 2014- Great race teams find a way to fight back from adversity. That’s exactly what happened for Matt Sheppard and his team after a DNF on July 11th. On Friday night Sheppard went back to victory lane after coming into the night with a slim seven point lead over Billy Decker.
Sheppard who started 13th went to the bottom of the speedway when he noticed the top getting higher and higher as he drove into the top-five when a caution came out with ten-laps to go in the 35-lap feature. On the restart Sheppard used the low groove to grab the lead from race-long leader Vinnie Vitale on lap-26. Once in the top spot nobody seriously challenged him the rest of the way as he earned his fourth Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Modified win of the season at the Brewerton Speedway.
