Record run nets second pole of season

Stafford Springs, CT — Without skipping a beat, Bobby Santos collected his second NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Coors Light Pole Award of the season in record fashion at Stafford Motor Speedway in qualifying for the Tech-Net Spring Sizzler presented by CARQUEST.

Santos, coming off a win from the pole in the 2010 season opening event at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway, set the tone for the day by posting the fastest lap in Saturday morning’s practice session and followed that up with a lap time of 17.965 seconds for an average speed of 100.195 mph which established a new track record.

He bested the previous record of 18.009 set by Matt Hirschman at the 2007 Spring Sizzler.
