Walpole, N.H. - Entries have been pouring in for the upcoming Fadden General Store 100 at North Woodstock, New Hampshire’s White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) this Saturday, September 20th.
There have been 28 drivers who have filed pre-entries for the event at the ¼ mile nestled in the White Mountains. The usual suspects from the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) are entered into the event, including point leader Matt Frahm, Dillon Moltz, Larry Gelinas, Derek Griffith, and Barry Gray. Only 17 points separate Frahm, Moltz, and Gelinas, with two races remaining. Frahm, who has finished on the podium in each of his last four races, and only finished worse than 7th once in the 2014 season (Star 6/28), and is focused on the task ahead. “We have been working our butts off at the shop,” a determined Frahm spoke. “We are determined to win the championship. Everybody has been clicking extremely well at the track, and extremely efficient getting the most out of the car during practice. Even if we are the fastest on the speed charts, the team never gives up on trying to find more speed, and I feel that is a huge part to our success recently.”
Moltz, who is the most recent winner on the GSPSS by picking up the victory at Star Speedway in the NH Classic, has been fast at each track on the tour, and figures to be fast at WMMP as well. “I adapt well to new tracks, so I don't handle it any differently than if I were at my home track,” said the Waterford, CT. driver. “We are going to keep digging hard, like we have been all season long, and take it as it comes.” Moltz sits 15 points behind Frahm entering Saturday’s event, and two points ahead of Gelinas for the second spot.
Gelinas, who led the championship standings at the beginning of the year, will be pulling double duty on Saturday, as the Buxton, Maine driver will be competing in the Bond Auto Invitational ACT event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire. Gelinas will have a sub-driver attempt to qualify his Watt’s Race Cars Cadillac for the Fadden General Store 100, and will start at the rear of the field if the number 37 secures a qualified spot.
Other drivers entered for the Fadden General Store 100 include recent PASS racers Richie Dearborn and Michael Lavoie, two-time GSPSS winner Jeremy Davis, Donnie Lashua in the Craig Brown-owned automobile, and George Bessette.
The Fadden General Store 100 will take place on Saturday, September 20th. Post time for this event is 6PM, with pit gates open at 1PM and practice commencing at 3PM. Front gate admission is $20 for adults, and just $2 for children under 12. White Mountain Motorsports Park is located at 463 Daniel Webster Highway in North Woodstock, New Hampshire.
