GNSS Decides Title This Weekend at Carteret


The Grand National Super Series will bring all the heavy hitters to Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway Saturday October 1st for their season ending Championship Race.

Series promoter Bob Schacht says “We expect a great race and I’m thinking you’ll be able to throw a rug over the top 5 finishers, it’ll be that competitive”.

AJ Henrikson has had an outstanding season and leads the overall standings by 242-points but don’t tell Marc Jones, currently second, that AJ has a lock. “This is racing,” says Schacht “and anything can happen especially with this lineup”.

Even more possible when you throw former NASCAR great Jeremy Mayfield into Saturday’s title chase at Carteret Speedway. Mayfield competes only in selected events yet is currently 10th in the overall GSNN standings and always a threat to stun the field as he did at Franklin County ear;ier this year.


Mayfield, who started his career by racing BMX bikes in his hometown of Owensboro, Kentucky, spent 17 years on the NASCAR circuit competing in 433 races. During that stretch, Mayfield logged 5-wins and had 96 top ten finishes.

Along with Mayfield, Clay Rogers, winner of 5 Hooters Pro Cup Titles will also be in the field making this quite possibly the strongest field of the GNSS season and why not, it’s Championship Night!

Schacht tells us “The entire series is excited to make the tow to Carteret because it’s a great track with a lot of history”.

The October 1st race card at Carteret County Speedway will also showcase the “Triple Feature” season ending showdown for the Chargers. Michael O’Brien leads Gator Williams by a dozen points with Mattew Gurganus 17-points off the pace in third but the “Triple Feature” format could be the proverbial season ending monkey wrench.

If someone could win all three races for a racing hat trick we’re talking 30-points! As we like to say, it’s racing and anything can happen.

The Mini Stocks and Street Stocks are also on the October 1st show for a grand night of racing. Tickets are 15 dollars with kids ten and under always admitted free. Remember, if you saved your armband from the September 24th “Bobby Watson Memorial” show, admission is half off.
