Stafford Speedway is offering a special deal for fans who bring a donation item with them to the track this Friday night. Any adult who brings a donation item with them to the track this Friday night will receive $3.00 off an Adult General Admission ticket for the First Niagara Independence Day Fireworks Celebration.

“We’re happy to be partnered with First Niagara in this relief supply endeavor,” said Stafford COO/GM Mark Arute. “The Monson, Mass. area is very close to home for us here at Stafford. There are a lot of fans, drivers, and crew members from that area that come to Stafford every Friday night and we’re happy to be able to do a small part in helping those who are in need of these supplies get back on track.”
While Stafford Speedway will serve as a drop point this Friday night for relief items, donations can be made at any time at any of the following First Niagara branch locations: Stafford Springs, Willington, Vernon Tri-City, Vernon, Storrs, Ellington, and Tolland.
