Walpole, NH- A large quantity of contingency awards awaits the drivers of the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) for the 2014 season.
Many different companies have stepped up and offered some great prizes and products this upcoming season. Not only do heat winners and the series champion receive contingency awards, there are also bonuses spread out through the entire field and random prize winners at the year-end banquet.
Sunoco Race Fuels will present the winner of any qualifying round, including heats and consolation rounds, with 5 gallons of race fuel. MacLellan Metal Finishing of Waltham, MA will also give all heat race winners a $25 check. This equates to approximately $85 added to the heat race winner’s check.
Not only will race winners reap rewards, but there are a few different companies supporting different finishing positions throughout the field. RB Performance, based out of Andover, ME, will be presenting a $50 gift certificate to the 4th and 7th place finisher in each feature event. Sherwood Racing Wheels from Owego, NY has agreed to present the 10th place finisher in each feature event with a $50 gift certificate. Bond Auto Parts will be awarding a $200 bonus to the last car on the lead lap at each event. Also, Five Star Stock Car Bodies will be handing out a $50 gift certificate with their 5th Place Finisher award. GSPSS driver Cory Casagrande is pleased with the distribution of awards. “For me, I’m mostly a weekly racer,” states Casagrande. “We do not get anything for heat races, nor do we usually receive any bonus besides gas for finishing in top 3 of the feature. The GSPSS has a unique way of paying it out through the field so it isn’t the same driver taking all the money every week.”
Also on race day, AR Bodies will be presenting a $100 gift certificate to one lucky driver at each event, picked by GSPSS officials. Drivers that gain the most positions in an event will be rewarded with the Hard Charger Award presented by Crazy Ed’s Powersports, to the tune of $100, as well as the Draco Springs award for a gift certificate for a Draco Spring. Finally, the Race Depot will present a $100 gift certificate at random at each GSPSS event. These generous awards by the GSPSS contingency sponsors total approximately $1000 in prizes and money available to drivers for each event. The 2014 series champion will be rewarded for his hard work throughout the season at the year-end banquet. The Race Depot will present the GSPSS champ with a helmet at the 2014 Awards Banquet. Velocita Premium Driving Apparel will also present the champion with 50% off a new fire suit. These awards will accent the championship package nicely.
The series champion will not be the only driver to benefit at the Awards Banquet. AR Bodies will be sponsoring the 2014 Rookie of the Year award with a $1000 gift certificate. AR Bodies will also be giving away two $500 gift certificates at random at the 2014 banquet. Five Star Stock Car Bodies will also be giving away two $500 gift certificates at the 2014 banquet, along with Velocita Premium Racing Apparel presenting 3 $250 gift certificates for their products in a random drawing. Draco Springs has agreed to sponsor the 2014 Most Improved Driver Award, rewarding the recipient with a $500 bonus, as well as a gift certificate for four Draco Springs to be given out at random at the Awards Banquet. Drivers will have a chance to walk away with over $5000 in prizes from the 2014 Awards Banquet.
The GSPSS would also like to welcome Waddell Communications and Racing Electronics to the team in 2014. Racing Electronics is the official radio of the GSPSS for the upcoming season. The Granite State Pro Stock Series thanks each and every one of our contingency sponsors for the 2014 season. Please show your support to these companies for helping to make the third season for the Granite State Pro Stock Series possible.
