Mark Bakaj Makes Move Up to SK Modified® Division for 2009 Season at Stafford

Stafford Springs, CT — After winning four races and posting a third place finish in the 2008 SK Light Modified points standings at Stafford Motor Speedway, Mark Bakaj will make the move up to the SK Modified® division and challenge for Rookie of the Year honors during the 2009 season. Bakaj will utilize the new SK Modified® Spec Engine in his car, which he says was a major factor in making the move up to the feature division.

“The new spec motor was a big factor in allowing us to make the move up to the SK Modified® division,” said Bakaj. “Business has been slow of late, so we don’t have a whole lot of money to work with. We’re working with Brian Kowalyshyn from Specialty Performance Engines on our engine. He’s not one of the more known engine guys, but he makes great engines and our team is excited about going SK Modified® racing and shooting for Rookie of the Year this season.”

Pass the Salt

This time of year gives us the opportunity to reflect on the past, rest in the present and look forward to the future. We usually use this time to look a little closer at a passage of Scripture and spend some time focusing on getting closer to God. This year I thought we might take a look at Jesus’ first public preaching, The Sermon on the Mount, from Matthew’s Gospel. Join with me over the next few weeks as we look at some exerts from this passage. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I have had it on my heart for some time to cover that passage here in the column. We will begin just after the Beatitudes, a passage in Matthew’s Gospel that begins what is referred to as “The Sermon on the Mount”. A time when Jesus sat and taught some of the most significant lessons we will learn as Christians to his disciples. If you recall a few winters back we covered the first part, Blessed are those…. Now we will continue and look a little further.

Track and sponsor together again after 10 years

Salisbury, MA — SpeedwayEXPO and Williams Distributing, of Chicopee, MA, have announced that Budweiser will be the presenting sponsor of the Riverside Park Speedway Reunion, which will take place at XPO.

Budweiser has long been associated with racing. The brand’s sponsorship of Daytona’s Bud Shootout begins each year’s stock car racing season and the Budweiser brand has long been part of some of racing’s more colorful teams. Bud currently sponsors Kasey Kahne, who races out of the Gillette-Evernham stable in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup series. Budweiser has been around New England racing for a long time, too. Ten years ago Williams Distributing, which sells Budweiser in the region, was honored as “sponsor of the year” at Riverside Park Speedway. Sadly, 1999 turned out to be the final year for both the amusement park and its popular racetrack.

Happy New Year

A familiar refrain we hear this time of the year, but can we assure the year to come will be happy? What does it take to be happy? How can we assure that no matter what the circumstances the New Year brings we will be happy? Happiness is more a condition of the heart than a result of the events that happen around us. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Have you ever listened to a post incident interview that took place with the drivers who were involved? Each driver has a take on what took place. Each one saw things from a different perspective. If you listen closely you can determine the one event that triggered the incident. It starts something like this; “I thought I could” or “I had the position but”. We think we can predict the results of our choices but many times the results are not what we would expect.
