Stafford Springs, CT — As Stafford native Cory Casagrande gives chase to the Limited Late Model championship this season at Stafford Motor Speedway, he will have a new primary sponsor on his car with Shark Cycle. Casagrande won three races in his rookie season of Limited Late Model competition last season, and the new sponsorship from Shark Cycle might just be the extra ingredient that Casagrande needs to challenge for the championship this season.
“Everyone needs help and this sponsorship is good for us,” said Casagrande. “One of my sponsors, Andresen Overhead Doors, is good friends with Bob Charland from Shark Cycle, and we got to talking at the end of last season. Everything came together for this year and you need as much help as you can get throughout the season. Gas and tires alone is over $100 per week and no matter how much sponsorship you have, it always seems like it’s not enough as you get closer to the end of the year.”
In only 2 short seasons, Casagrande has firmly established himself as a race winner and viable championship contender. In his first season of DARE Stock competition in 2010, Casagrande won 3 races and he finished 5th in the points standings. Last year saw Casagrande move up to the Limited Late Model division and he again won 3 races and finished the season 7th in points despite missing a race. With such a history in only a short period of time, Casagrande is looking to build upon that success and challenge for the championship this season.
