GSM2Hudson, NH. – Mike O’Sullivan of Springfield, MA, made his first ever visit to Hudson (NH) Speedway a memorable one as he won the Granite State Pro Stock Series sanctioned ‘Gate City Classic 100’ Sunday night, July 7.

O’Sullivan started fourth in an 18-car field and moved to the front at the beginning of lap 44 when he passed Jeremy Davis of Tamworth, NH.

Davis set a torrid pace after passing early leader Barry Gray on lap seven. For a period, Davis looked like the car to beat leading for 35 laps until O’Sullivan made his race-winning pass.

Buxton, ME, veteran Larry Gelinas, making his first ever start at the famed Hudson oval, drove a steady race and tried to use a lapped car to his advantage on the final lap when he almost pulled alongside O’Sullivan in a race to the checkered flag.

Matt Frahm, of North Salem,NH, already a two-time winner this season, finished a strong third. Davis settled for fourth, and Tommy O’Sullivan, of Wilbraham, MA, rounded out the top five.

Sixth through tenth were, Jay Sands, Craig Weinstein, Gray, Jake Vanada, and Phil Meaney.

Only three caution flags were displayed for minor incidents on laps, 7, 18, and 53.

The GSPSS will return to Hudson on August 25. Next up for the third year series is an appearance at Monadnock Speedway, Winchester, NH, on August 3.
