BRADFORD, Vt. — Bear Ridge Speedway’s Sportsman Coupe division seems to be spreading the success around this summer.

Cody Copeland became the eighth different winner of a Coupe feature when he outpaced the field of 17 to highlight Saturday night’s dirt track card. Copeland won the second of the two heat races before prevailing in the main event. At seventh place in the standings, Copeland remains an outlier in the title chase; Josh Harrington used his second-place finish to stretch his points lead to 583-570 over Tad Kingsbury, who was fourth in the main event.

Some things remained the same. Jason Gray kept up his dominance of the Sportsman Modified class with his seventh feature win of the season. Gray, starting 14th in the field, passed Kyle Ashford on lap 26 of the 35-circuit feature for the victory, with Jordan Fornwalt and Richie Simmons filling out the top three. Gray holds a commanding 673-578 points advantage over Fornwalt entering the final three weeks of the schedule.

Other Saturday victories went to Seth Carlson (Midgets), Tyler Tremblay (Late Models), Jesse Dunham (Dirt Stockers) and Jason Porter (Four Cylinders). The Granite State Mini Sprints join a full card of action set for Saturday at 6 p.m.

Griffith wins GSPSS 150

CLAREMONT — Derek Griffith led from start to finish to claim the Newport Chevrolet 150 race for the Granite State Pro Stock Series at Claremont Motorsports Park on Sunday.

Griffith drew the pole position out of qualifying and didn’t have to pass anyone the rest of the way, dominating the field for the $10,000 first prize. It’s the largest winner’s check in GSPSS history.

Jimmy Renfrew picked up the other big win from Sunday’s card, the Richard Tetreault Memorial 73-lapper for the Street Stock division. Like Griffith, Renfrew led from the opening lap in a wire-to-wire success.

Jimmy Zullo completed a next-to-last-lap pass of Kyle Buck and beat out more than 60other competitors for the Enduro victory. Other wins went to Kodi Sabins (Pure Stocks) and Paul Colburn (Six Shooters).

Claremont returns to regular Friday action this week, with a full card scheduled for its 14th show of the summer season.
