Stafford Springs, CT — For SK Modified® driver Dan Avery, the 2012 season at Stafford Motor Speedway offers plenty of promise. After racing the last two years in Ted Christopher owned equipment, Avery and his partner Tony Genua has purchased a new car and engine for the 2012 season. Avery is looking to pick up his first SK Modified® victory since he won back-to-back events in the very first season of SK Modified® competition in 1982.
“I’m pretty psyched and the guys on the team are pretty psyched for the season,” said Avery. “Towards the end of the season last year, we were really close to winning. There’s nothing like having new equipment, a new car and a new engine. I think that this new car will help us to gain that one tenth of a second that were lacking last year and make that gap up to the field. But I can’t say enough about Teddy [Christopher] and his guys with all the effort they put into the car for us the last two years. Teddy is a great guy, a great friend, and he really does a lot of behind the scenes stuff that no one ever sees or hears about.”
In addition to racer spirit, Avery has a great deal of motivation to return to victory lane this season. Last season, Avery donated a portion of his winnings to the Channel 3 Kids Camp, and while nothing has been confirmed for this season yet, talks are ongoing for Avery to continue to make donations to the Kids Camp.
