National Runner-up Visits Second Governor In Four Years
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Keith Rocco wins Connecticut’s NASCAR state championship with such consistency that he was congratulated by a new administration recently. Rocco was greeted by Gov. Dan Malloy in the State Capitol Building in Hartford.
Rocco, 27, of Wallingford, won his fourth consecutive Connecticut state championship in 2011. Malloy, 56, of Stamford, took office as his state’s 88th governor in January 2011.
“It was great to return to visit the Capitol Building again and meet our new governor,” Rocco said. “He was interested in what we do in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Our visit went well.
“It’s nice that the governor’s office and NASCAR work together to recognize us as state champions.”
