Connecticut driver will race opening Late Model championship event Sunday
WEST HAVEN, VT – Former NASCAR National Champion Keith Rocco will trek north to Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Sunday, May 13 for the Mother’s Day Special event. The Wallingford, CT superstar will compete in the championship-opening race for the J&S Steel Late Model division.
Rocco was the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Champion in 2010 and has ranked fourth or better for each of the last five years. The Devil’s Bowl feature event will be the fourth race of his busy weekend; Rocco will run an open-wheel SK Modified and a full-fender Late Model on Friday night at Stafford Motor Speedway in his native Connecticut, heads to Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, NH on Saturday for a 200-lap NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event, and rides north for his first-ever race in Vermont on Sunday.
“We’re coming to race, to have fun, and hopefully to win,” Rocco declared. “If you’re not trying to win, you shouldn’t be out there, right?”
