Stafford Springs, CT — In preparation for the 2014 season Stafford Motor Speedway has made multiple announcements that will put a fresh look on weekly racing at the half-mile. One of the headline events for the 2014 season is the SK 5k on July 4th. Stafford has already announced the largest purse in SK Modified® history paying $5,000 to the winner and over $27,000 in total purse money up for grabs, but now a new never before seen twist will be added to the all-new July 4th event.
“We are really happy to give the SK Modified® drivers a chance to race for some extra purse money,” said Mark Arute, COO/GM of Stafford Speedway. “They put on the best racing in the country week in and week out and we thank them for that, but we needed to throw a curveball at this event.”
The fans will play a direct role in the July 4th SK 5k race as they will choose the entire race format from lap count to qualifying procedure. Fans will be allowed to vote on every aspect of the July 4th SK Modified® race. Voting will take place at www.staffordmotorspeedway.com up until the night of the SK 5k. But before voting opens Stafford Speedway officials would like to hear insight from the fans on what to include on the SK 5k ballot. Stafford Speedway encourages everyone to share their ideas on Stafford Speedway social media and as well as any other media outlets. The voting will begin in late March.
