Stafford Speedway Adds Modified Racing Series Event to its 2010 Schedule of Events

Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford Motor Speedway has announced that they have added a Modified Racing Series event to its 2010 Event Schedule. The Inaugural Shark Cycle Modified Racing Series 100 will take place Friday, September 10th at the famed Connecticut half-mile and will be joined on the card by Stafford’s five NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing divisions.

“My father set out to make Stafford Motor Speedway the premier destination for modified racing, and it is in that tradition that we are adding this event to our 2010 calendar,” said Stafford COO/GM Mark Arute. “We are still committed 100% to NASCAR and the Whelen Modified Tour. Adding this event helps us to offer modified racing fans a wider variety of open wheeled modified racing here at Stafford while continuing the tradition that my father started of Stafford being the premier modified racing facility in the Northeast. We have received a lot of positive input from fans and competitors alike regarding the Modified Racing Series coming to Stafford over the past couple of seasons, and we decided that the time was right for us to add another modified racing event to our schedule. A lot of drivers who race either full time or part time with the Modified Racing Series drivers have competed here at Stafford in either SK Modified® or Whelen Modified Tour competition, so we feel that the Modified Racing Series will put on a great modified show and add to our modified tradition here at Stafford.”
