Shark Cycle Returns as Title Sposor of September Modified Racing Series Event at Stafford Speedway

Stafford Springs, CT — For the second consecutive season, the Valenti Modified Racing Series will make a September appearance at Stafford Motor Speedway with race title sponsorship from Shark Cycle of Stafford Springs. Last year’s Shark Cycle race was the first ever appearance by the Valenti Modified Racing Series at Stafford and the race was won by Ted Christopher, who is Stafford’s winningest driver in history with 110 feature victories.

“Last year’s race was a great event for us to be involved with,” said Bob Charland, owner of Shark Cycle. “We had a lot of customer feedback from our sponsorship and we’re looking forward to being part of another exciting night of modified racing at Stafford Speedway.”

The Shark Cycle Valenti Modified Racing Series event last season was a duel between Stafford veterans and Valenti Modfied Series regulars. The Stafford veterans held the edge over the series regulars when the checkered flag fell as the top-6 spots and 9 of the top-10 positions were filled by drivers with SK Modified® or Whelen Modified Tour experience at Stafford.
