Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford Speedway was back in action with a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program on Friday night, July 16th. Ryan Posocco scored his third victory of the 2010 season in the 30-lap Late Model feature and Tommy Barrett, Jr. won his second consecutive and fourth overall race of the 2010 season in the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature. Rain halted the remainder of the program and as more than half of the event was completed, there will be no rain checks. The DARE Stock feature will be added to next Friday night’s 7th Annual CARQUEST SK 150 program, the Limited Late Model feature will be added to the Friday, July 30th event, and the SK Modified® feature will be added to the Friday, August 13th event at no extra charge for those events.
In the 30-lap Late Model feature event, J.J. Hill took the early lead while Michael Bennett went three wide to take over second place. With 2 laps complete, Corey Hutchings and Keith Rocco came together on the backstretch with Rocco’s car briefly climbing the wall before coming back down on all four tires, which brought the caution out.
Hill took the lead again back under green but before the field could get back to the stripe Ryan Posocco had taken over the lead from Hill. Dillon Moltz moved into second with Hill falling back to third. Adam Gray was fourth and Scott Cook was fifth.
