Stafford Springs, CT — When the DARE Stock division takes the green flag for the first time in 2013 at Stafford Motor Speedway, Middletown native Bryan Iwaniuk will fulfill a vision that was two years in the making. Whereas most drivers purchase a chassis and motor to go racing with, Iwaniuk has taken the old school approach of building his car from scratch to make his debut.
“This has been a 2-year project for me,” said Iwaniuk. “I looked at a lot of cars, but it seemed like every car that I looked at needed a front or rear clip, or had been crashed at some point. My brother was putting together a 1985 Monte Carlo and he needed parts, and all I needed was the frame and the engine, so we went halfs on a 1986 Monte Carlo SS and he got the parts he needed and I got a frame and engine to work with. It worked out really well for both of us.”
Iwaniuk formerly raced Street Stocks at Oxford and Wiscassett in Maine, and he also has done some drag racing, but he says he chose to race at Stafford this season because of the race program.
