Stafford Springs, CT — With the 2013 season on the horizon at Stafford Motor Speedway, Enfield native Kris Fluckiger is ready to count himself among the challengers for the 2013 DARE Stock track title. In only his second season of competition at SMS, Fluckiger recorded his first victory to go along with 12 top-5 and 16 top-10 finishes to end the season in fourth place in the points standings. With a victory in the season ending non-points Paradiso-Muska DARE Stock Shoot-Out, Fluckiger is ready to carry that momentum into 2013.
“I’d like to think we can be contenders for the championship this season,” said Fluckiger. “That was our plan last season, but we were playing catch up for most of the year.”
One of the main factors in Fluckiger having to play catch up was a faulty transmission that Fluckiger and his team misdiagnosed as a handling issue for the majority of the 2012 season.
