Brockton, MA — Russ Stoehr heads to Stafford Motor Speedway’s Carquest Extreme Tuesday aiming to take over third on the Northeastern Midget Association’s all-time win list. Last Sunday’s victory at Thunder Road was the 45th career win for Stoehr, putting him in a tie for third with Nokie Fornoro.
Two-for-two in 2011, defending champions Stoehr and the Dumo’s Desire team take plenty of momentum to a facility he has yet to win at. Thunder Road was the 12th track Stoehr has conquered going back to his initial win with owner Bruce Bean at Star Speedway on June 20, 1987.
A third straight win will put Stoehr in some lofty company as well. Since 1981, three straight has been accomplished only five times, the last time by Randy Cabral in 2008.
