Stafford Springs, CT — When the winning driver in 16th Annual Lincoln Technical Institute Late Model 100, scheduled for next Friday, May 7th at Stafford Motor Speedway, pulls into CARQUEST Victory Lane, they will have a unique trophy awaiting them, courtesy of Lincoln Tech, the race sponsor. Lincoln Tech Institute students will airbrush a custom design onto the hood of a passenger car, which will serve as the trophy for the event.
“Our automotive students will airbrush a custom design for the Lincoln Technical Institute Late Model 100 onto a passenger car hood and we will have the hood on display at our midway booth before presenting it to the race winner,” said Robert Wargo, High School Admissions Representative for Lincoln Tech. “Everyone here at Lincoln Tech is excited about the race and our students are excited about creating a trophy for the race winner.”
The customized hood will not be the only thing that Lincoln Tech has to offer during the 16th Annual Lincoln Technical Institute Late Model 100. The first 25 race fans to visit the Lincoln Tech booth on the midway will receive a custom airbrushed tee-shirt and the first 200 fans to the booth will receive a Lincoln Tech ball cap.
“As I said, everyone here at Lincoln Tech is excited about the race and we wanted to offer the race fans a unique opportunity to get them as excited about our event as we are,” said Wargo.
The chase for the Lincoln Tech trophy is sure to be an intense battle between Stafford’s Late Model drivers. Last season, Tom Butler ended Dillon Moltz’s three-race Late Model extra distance winning streak with a win in the August Late Model 100. Other former extra distance feature winners in the field that will be vying for the Lincoln Tech trophy will be Ryan Posocco, Jim Peterson, and Woody Pitkat, but it will be anyone’s guess as to who will walk away from the race with the special custom trophy.
