Stafford Springs, CT — With the 2016 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season drawing closer to dropping the green flag, Stafford Motor Speedway is geared up for what will promise to be a blockbuster year. The Connecticut half-mile track will offer race fans a sneak preview into the season at the Frank Maratta Auto & Race-A-Rama show, which will be held at the Big E in Springfield, MA from Feb. 26-28.
Stafford’s booth will be filled with the #99 SK Modified® car of defending SK Modified® track champion Rowan Pennink, the #75 SK Light of David Arute, the DP Motorsports owned #28 Limited Late Model that will be driven by Bryan Narducci, the #12 DARE Stock of Alexandra Fearn, and the #25 Legend Car of Brett Crowther.
Defending SK Modified® champion Rowan Pennink and the #99 NAPA Van Wickle Auto Supply team have been on a roll since the middle of the 2014 season. They won 5 times in the second half of the 2014 season and they followed that up with 6 wins in 2015 to go along with 17 top-5 and 19 top-10 finishes. Pennink dueled with Ryan Preece for much of the year in the chase for the track title and Pennink ended up beating Preece to the championship by a 10-point margin at season’s end.
