Stafford Motor Speedway CARQUEST Champions for Charities Driver Spotlight: Justin Bonsignore

Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford Motor Speedway has again lined up an impressive field of current and former open wheel champions for its CARQUEST Champions For Charities Event as part of CARQUEST Super Saturday on June 30th. During the coming weeks, SMS will offer a profile on each of its championship winning drivers and the charity they will be racing for and this week’s CARQUEST Champions For Charities spotlights falls on 2011 Riverhead Raceway Modified champion Justin Bonsignore, who will be racing to support the Trinca Family Memorial Trust.

On October 8, 2011, while on their way to Riverhead Raceway where Jason Trinca competed in the karting club, a tragic car accident took the lives of mother Keri and son Jason, also leaving daughter Marialena and son Christopher with very serious injuries. Since then, both children have been recovering, with Marialena still in the hospital. Donations are being taken to help the effort of allowing father Jason to be by his daughters side 24/7.

“The Trinca family raced at the Riverhead Karting Club where I raced and we became good friends off the track,” said Bonsignore. “An accident like that is a tragedy for any family to have to go through and I’m hoping that we can raise as much money as possible to be able to help out Jason, Marialena, and Christopher. The race should be a good time, it’s all for fun and no business.”
