Stafford Springs, CT — For Stafford Late Model driver Walt Wosko, Jr., the 2011 season has brought about a new sponsor in Miner’s Inc. Lumber & Building Supply of Canton, CT for the #71 team. Miner’s Inc. joins Spargo Construction and Connecticut Custom Cars as the team’s sponsors. The new sponsorship has allowed the team to purchase a new engine as well as chassis updates for the 2011 season at Stafford Motor Speedway.
“Having Miner’s come on board with us this year was a big boost to the whole team, it was like a godsend,” said Wosko.
The #71 team is entering their 6th season of Late Model competition at Stafford, and they are looking to build upon a foundation they set at the start of the 2010 season before a blown engine ended their season after seven starts.
“Billy the Kid has given us a phenomenal motor for this season,” said Wosko. “We also have to thank Jason Moore from JMR Chassis. Without his help, we wouldn’t be anywhere near where we are now with the car. He’s been helping us out with the chassis and with his help, we were in the top-5 on the practice sheets last year, which was better than we’ve ever been at Stafford. We had the car really going good and then the motor blew and money was tight so we decided to end our season and build for this year. We thought we were going to really have a good year last year, but we’re all excited for this year with Miner’s joining Spargo Construction and Connecticut Custom Cars as our sponsors. With our new Billy the Kid engine and Jason Moore helping us again with our chassis stuff, we are super happy and we’re ready to go racing this season.”
