All three events as part of the Whelen Granite State Short Track Cup will be in the state of New Hampshire. The first is set for Saturday, May 21, as the inaugural Granite State Derby will take place at Lee USA Speedway. The second includes a stop at the high-banks of Monadnock Speedway on June 18, while the finale will take place at Claremont Motorsports Park on Friday, July 29. The winner of the Whelen Granite State Short Track Cup will be crowned at Claremont. All additional details surrounding the Cup will be released at a later date.
The Cup will be just one more of many incentives for Whelen Modified Tour teams to chase during the new season, and will also continue to welcome local drivers who compete at the New Hampshire tracks weekly to enter the race.
