Brian Chapin Looks to Break Down Barrier to CARQUEST Victory Lane in Stafford’s Late Model Division in 2010

Stafford Springs, CT — As the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series off-season burrows through the winter months, Stafford Speedway race teams are busy preparing their equipment for the upcoming 2010 season. One team that is busy with preparation is the #47 Jolly Joe Koziol Polka Pop Hits Chevrolet Late Model team of Brian Chapin. Chapin and his team are dropping a new body on their car as well as having their engine freshened.

“We ran the spec engine all last season without a refresh, so we dropped that off to Mike Pettit and we’re hanging a new body on the car,” said Chapin. “We have to thank our sponsor, Jolly Joe Koziol Polka Pop Hits, for the body. Our plans was to keep the same body we had on the car and just beat out some of the dents, but Jolly Joe stepped up and gave us money for a brand new body. Once we get the body hung on the car, Jolly Joe is going to pick out our color combination, so we aren’t sure yet what the car is going to look like when it hits the track. I have to thank all my guys for their hard work: my father Wayne, Dale, Brian, Andy, Mark, Craig, and Brett.”

As Chapin and his team prepare for the upcoming 2010 season, they have one goal in mind and that is to reach victory lane. Chapin was the 2008 Late Model Reliable Welding and Speed Rookie of the Year, and in two full seasons of Late Model competition he has two 9th place points finishes with a career best finish of second, which occurred August 14th of the 2009 season. Chapin wants to break into CARQUEST Victory Lane this season, and he is confident that he and his team can reach that goal.

PASS will rock North Wilkesboro with Megabuck Super Late Model race in 2011

Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry is pleased to announce that the Pro All Stars Series will promote and sanction a 300 lap super late model race at Historic North Wilkesboro (NC) Speedway on April 7.8 and 9, 2011.

The winner of this unprecedented showdown for asphalt short trackers is guaranteed a minimum of $75,000.00. The event is tentatively set as a PASS South points race.

“I’m pleased that the partners at North Wilkesboro Speedway have agreed to present this historic short track event, “said Mayberry. “ We are announcing the race prior to the start of our 2010 PASS North and South schedules because we are building some additional bonuses into the purse for PASS competitors, including guaranteed starting positions for the top 15 in our final 2010 North and South point standings and an additional $25,000.00 winners bonus for the teams that choose to run all of our 2010 point races in either series, plus four of the PASS national events. That’s a $100,000.00 pay day for the race winner if they are a PASS regular, and a 20 percent bonus across the board for every starting position.. We also have an intermediate bonus plan that will see the winners share grow from $75,000.00 to $82,500.00 if he or she competes in any combination of ten PASS North or South events in 2010, plus a ten percent bonus from the base purse for every starting position. A PASS license is required to qualify for the bonus plans, but the base purse of over $153,000.00 will be enough to attract the cream of the crop from all over the USA and Canada to challenge our regulars.”
