Racing series updates

office Jun 5, 2015 - 4:42pm

(By Martin Bélanger)

The Ultimate Pro-Stock Series will back in action this weekend, with stops on Quebec soil at Autodrome Granby on Friday, June 5, and the following night at RPM Speedway. On each occasion, two feature events will be run with 25-lap distances for each race.

This new format has already brought a new face to the winner's circle, as Alexandria's Rosco Garreau won the initial race in Cornwall on May 3, while veteran runner Jocelyn Roy prevailed in the second race. Roy heads to Granby with a very slim two-point lead over Ghislain Valade. Rounding out the top five are Stephane Lemire, George Renaud, and Dave Bissonnette.

With four distinct feature races on tap, the top 5 could look very different after Saturday evening.
