Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford Motor Speedway has announced that for the seventh consecutive season, the track’s Memorial Day Weekend NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event will be sponsored by TSI Harley-Davidson, the oldest Harley-Davidson dealer in the state of Connecticut. The 24th Annual TSI Harley-Davidson 125 will mark the 10th consecutive season that TSI Harley-Davidson has been a race title sponsor at Stafford and the race will be held on Friday, May 23.
TSI first partnered with Stafford Motor Speedway as a race sponsor in 2005 when they sponsored a NASCAR K & N Pro Series East event. TSI sponsored an East Series race from 2005-2007 and then transferred that sponsorship to the Memorial Day Weekend Whelen Modified Tour beginning in 2008. TSI Harley-Davidson has been the presenting sponsor of that race each year since.
“We’re looking forward to another great year at Stafford,” said Harry Levesque, Owner of TSI. “Stafford Speedway has been and continues to be a great place for us to be able to reach out to our target audience and it has been a great place for us to be able to showcase our line of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Last year we were able to debut our jumpstart, which allows riders to get on a bike and actually give it some throttle and go through the gears. A lot of Stafford race fans are also Harley-Davidson fans, and we have a lot of fun being able to interact with the fans on race night.”
