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.
