John Montesanto Returns to Stafford’s SK Light Modified Divison

Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford Motor Speedway’s SK Light Modified division will add another new car to its roster for the 2009 season, but with a hitch; the new driver won’t be a rookie. John Montesanto, who drove Late Models at Stafford in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, will return to the Connecticut half-mile after a nearly 20-year layoff to try his luck in the SK Light Modified division.

“Some friends of mine and I decided that we needed to add some excitement to our lives on Friday nights,” said Montesanto. “I began racing Late Models at Riverside and I’ve also raced at Waterford and Stafford. I’ve always wanted to race a modified at Stafford, so after almost 20 years off we’re going racing again. With the cost effectiveness of the SK Light package, we decided that the time was right for us to finally jump into modified racing.”

Our Seekonk stop is sure to be one of the highlights of the 2009 PASS season.”
