Erica Santos Picks Up NEMA Midget Ride for Stafford Speedway’s CARQUEST Super Sat. Program

Will Sub for Bobby Santos in Champions for Charities Race

Stafford Springs, CT — After originally not having any plans to race this weekend, Erica Santos suddenly has a busy weekend ahead of her as she will pilot the Ed Breault #44 in this Saturday’s CARQUEST Super Saturday event as well as taking over for her brother Bobby in the 15-lap Wild Thing Kart Senior Outlaw CARQUEST Champions For Charities event. The Breault owned #44 is the same car that Santos drove to victory in the 2007 edition of CARQUEST Super Saturday to become the first and so far only female feature winner in NEMA history.

“Pete Zanardi had called me to see if I was going to run our family car in the NEMA race, and when I told him we weren’t going to run it, he told me that Ed [Breault] was looking for a driver,” said Santos. “I called Ed and we’re going to run. I’m pretty excited to be back in that car, it’s usually pretty good at Stafford.”

Santos will be pulling double duty as along with her NEMA Midget duties, she will take over her brother Bobby’s spot in the CARQUEST Champions For Charities 15-lap feature. Santos will lean on her quarter midget experience in the Senior Outlaw feature and she feels confident that she will be able to have a good run.

Rob Summers Looking for Second ISMA Supermodified Win at Stafford Behind the Wheel of Vic Miller #11

Stafford Springs, CT — Rob Summers returns to Stafford this Saturday for the CARQUEST Super Saturday program hoping to pick up his second career ISMA Supermodified victory. Summers won the 2007 edition of CARQUEST Super Saturday driving for Howie Lane, but this year’s ISMA feature event will see Summers behind the wheel of the potent Vic Miller owned #11 that was previously driven by Chris Perley. The Miller/Perley combination has won 5 times at Stafford and Summers is hoping to continue the #11 car’s winning ways.

“I’m feeling very confident because I know I’m in a car that is very capable,” said Summers. “Hopefully we’ll have a little luck on our side and we’ll see what happens. The one win I have at Stafford is probably one of the most gratifying wins that I have because we beat Chris Perley. Winning this race would be huge, but the team is expecting to do well, it’s a team that has done it many times, so it’s up to me to get it there. Vic and his crew have been doing this for a long time; any time they go to the track they have a pretty good car.”

With no plans to race this season, Summers got a surprise call from Miller asking him if he would be interested in driving his car for the 2012 season.
