Stafford Springs, CT — With the 2010 season underway at Stafford Motor Speedway, the fight for race wins and championships is in full swing. Another race that is underway is the fight for the Reliable Welding and Speed Rookie of the Year title and a pair of 15-year old drivers are dueling for the top rookie honor in the SK Light Modified division at Stafford Motor Speedway.
Joey Cipriano and Matt Galko have shown little signs of being a rookie at Stafford, as they have both contended for race wins and while Galko has yet to have a podium finish, Cipriano has visited the podium in two of his first three starts this season. Both drivers say the early success has come as a surprise.
“I’m definitely surprised at how well we’ve ran so far this year,” said Galko. “In the first race we were fighting for a top-3 finish and we’ve been fighting for the podium in 2 of the first three races and I never expected to be doing that right away. We’re still learning and adjusting on the car every week. With being a rookie, we’ve had to start in the back, buy my dad puts a great car under me and I think that if we can keep the car together and have some luck fall our way, we can definitely get our first win pretty soon.”
