Stafford Springs, CT — With the 2010 Stafford Motor Speedway NASCAR Racing season in the history books, it is time once again for competitors to be rewarded for their season-long efforts through the Stafford Motor Speedway point fund and track contingency awards.
At the end of each racing season, Stafford Motor Speedway pays out 5% of its total purses for the year as a point fund for the top-15 points finishers in each of its five weekly divisions. The 2010 Stafford Motor Speedway point fund totaled in excess of $19,000 with track champions Keith Rocco, Ryan Posocco, Matt Galko, Dan Flannery, and Tony Membrino, Jr. taking home the lion’s share of their respective division’s point funds.
Adding to the Stafford Motor Speedway post-season awards was $16,500 in track award money that was paid to the top-10 points finishers from the SK Modified®, Late Model, SK Light Modified, and Limited Late Model divisions. The top-10 in the SK Modifieds® were paid a total of $10,000, the top-10 Late Model drivers $3,000, the top-10 SK Light Modified drivers $2,000, and the top-10 Limited Late Model drivers $1,500.
