Stafford Motor Speedway returns to racing tomorrow afternoon with the rescheduled CARQUEST Tech-Net Spring Sizzler with the SK Modifieds®, Late Models, and Whelen Modified Tour taking to the track.

Debris brought the yellow back out with the completion of the third lap.
Goff held the lead on the restart, but the car on the move was John Hanafin, who moved from fourth to second behind Goff. Cardile settled into third, with Kyle Spencer and Tony Santangelo behind them. A spin by Harry Wheeler and Zach Aszklar with 9 laps complete slowed the action.
