Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford’s SK Modified® division takes center stage next Friday night, August 13th with twin 40-lap features. The double feature night means a possible 100 SK Modified® championship points will be on the line, which can either help or seriously hinder a driver’s position in the SK Modified® championship standings. One driver who is looking forward to 2 races in one evening is Jeff Baral, driver of the #20 Fournier Motorsports / Rewind Hangover Prevention Ford.
“I like the double feature nights,” said Baral. “I remember back in the day the double feature night was a scheduled event. We would go out and run a 40-lap race, then sit on pit road and work on the cars while the DARE Stock feature went out, and then we would go back out for the second race. This year will be a little different because the track really changes from the heat of the day to night when the sun goes down. The first race will be more like a setup we run for practices and heat races and the second feature will be more of a setup like we’re used to running for the feature. Hopefully guys will use their heads in the first race and then we can go for it in the second race.”
Baral and the #20 team are coming off one of their best finishes of the 2010 season, a fourth place finish in the prestigious CARQUEST SK 150, and the double feature night will be a great opportunity for Baral to improve his position in the points standings.
