Jeff Baral Gets Boost with New Sponsors at Stafford

Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford SK Modified® driver and Southington native Jeff Baral will welcome two new sponsors to his #18 team for the 2017 season.  Baral is hopeful that the new sponsorship will yield a return to the top-5 of the SK Modified® points standings this season.

“We’ve always had good equipment and good help but we’ve never had the financial backing to show what we can do,” said Baral.  “With the help of 2 new sponsors, Island Coffee Company and TR Landworks along with returning sponsors, The Wheel Shop, Morrison and Johnson, and Arbitell Convenience Stores, I definitely think we’re going to have a good boost.  I have some really great crew guys with Jamie, Barry, Jeff, Scott, Glen, Lou and with Jimmy Fuller helping us out on the chassis and Mike Pettit on the motor, I think we can have a great year.”

Island Coffee is based out of Long Island with many distribution outlets throughout the northeast and they have been in business since 1977.  Island Coffee is sold to the majority of your local convenience stores so be sure to grab an Island Coffee every Friday night on your way to and from Stafford Motor Speedway.  TR Landworks is based in East Hartland and they specialize in clearing multiple acres of land for wildlife habitat; creation, maintenance, and reclamation.  They are also well suited for farm land restoration and all forms of land maintenance and clearing.

Baral made a full-time return to the SK Modified® division last year after not racing a full season since 2010.  Baral has 7 SK Modified® feature wins in his Stafford career between 2003 and 2006. Those were also the best seasons of Baral’s career as he finished 6th and 7th in the points in 2004, 2005, and 2006.  Despite having never cracked the top-5 in the final points standings in a season, Baral says that is his goal for the 2017 season along with getting his #18 back into NAPA Victory Lane for the first time since June 9, 2006.

“Honestly I’d like to win a couple of races this year and compete for a top-5 spot in the points standings,” said Baral.  “We’d also like to be more consistent with our race finishes.  With consistency comes points and race wins.  Going back in my career, we had a stretch where we weren’t worse than 7th in points and with Jimmy Fuller helping us out this season, I think the car is better now than it ever was then.  A championship would obviously be great.”

Last season saw Baral and the #18 team miss three races but they still finished well enough in their starts to end the season in 14th place in the standings.  While the season was full of ups and downs for Baral, he recorded three top-10 finishes in his final 5 starts, including a season-best second place finish in the final Friday night race of the year.  This stretch of races gives Baral confidence that he can match his pre-season goals of finishing in the top-5 in the points as well as getting back to NAPA Victory Lane.

“The car was always really good last year, we just didn’t always have the results to show,” said Baral.  “We’ve gone through the car and rebuilt everything and freshened up the motor so I think we can have a fast car every week this season.  We just need to have a little luck on our side.  We’ve been at Stafford long enough to know all the ups and downs.  Racing is such that there’s usually a lot more downs than ups but we’re hoping that we can have a season with more highs than lows this year.

High Five: Donny Schatz Wins Gerdau Magic City Showdown for Fifth Straight Year at Nodak Speedway

MINOT, N.D. – August 28, 2016 – It took Donny Schatz until his seventh start to win at his home track of Nodak Speedway in Minot, North Dakota with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series. Since that victory in 2012, he been undefeated in the Gerdau Magic City Showdown. Schatz extended his win streak at Nodak Speedway to five, after leading flag-to-flag on Sunday night at the three-eighths-mile.
Schatz started second and on the initial start ran second to pole sitter Logan Schuchart, but the first caution flag of the night flew before the lap was complete. That led to a complete restart and on the second start, Schatz was able to dive under Schuchart on the front straightaway to officially lead the first lap. Schatz was in traffic just five laps into the race and like his win on Friday night at River Cities Speedway, he masterfully weaved his way through the lapped machines.
“They are all special and they are all good,” said Schatz of his five wins at Nodak Speedway. “The trophies here are awesome and so are the people. Everything about this place is great. I’ll tell you what’s really great, and that is this race team. These guys (on my crew) deserve to be standing here. The race car they prepare each day is incredible. I’m the lucky guy that gets to drive it and looks good. Their hard work is what pays off and gets us to victory lane.”

Mother Nature Forces Another Evergreen Raceway Cancellation

St. Johns, PA (8/20/2016)- In what seems to be an ongoing battle with Mother Nature, Evergreen Raceway officials have made the decision to cancel their event that was slated for Sunday, August 21. The show, which was supposed to highlight the Tour-Type Modifieds, won’t be rescheduled due to the next Tour Type Modified being just a few weeks away. It’s slated for Sunday, September 11.

“I absolutely hate it for the racers and their fans”, noted track promoter, Jason Makarewicz.   “We kept a close eye on the forecast for the last three days and all its done was get worse. We also kicked around the idea of making up this special Modified show on the same day as our next Enduro. The idea was a great one, but unfortunately that won’t happen because of the Tour Modifieds being on the schedule for the week following the Enduro.” He continued, “Thanks to Mother Nature, we definitely learned this year. I and a lot of others are just really looking forward the near perfect fall racing weather.”

With the slew of cancellations over the last month and a half, many of the track’s regular divisions have been on the sidelines. Many of them are excited to be back on the asphalt next Sunday, August 28, including the Evergreen Modifieds, Street Stocks, Factory Stocks and Four Cylinders. A Powder Puff race is also on the schedule for the Four Cylinder and Factory Stocks/Street Stocks.

Stafford Springs, CT — For the fourth consecutive season, Call Before You Dig has partnered with Stafford Speedway to present the CBYD 811 Challenge as a unique way to raise awareness about CBYD’s 811 number to call before beginning an excavation project.  The CBYD 811 Challenge is open to drivers in each of Stafford’s five NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions and awards five drivers an $811 bonus at the conclusion of the August 5th feature events utilizing a special points system.  This year’s $4,055 in bonus money from CBYD brings the 4-year total for the program to over $16,000 distributed to Stafford drivers.

Jeff Strunk, Ron Kline and Brian Papiez Took Home the Big Bucks As NASCAR Feature Winners on Saturday Night at Grandview Speedway

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. August 7, 2016 –After three separate showers went through the Grandview Speedway grounds late Saturday afternoon racing was delayed for an hour until the track was race ready for an action-packed night of three division NASCAR stock car racing in the activities sponsored by Bernheisel Race Cars.

The last time the Modifieds were in action, Jeff Strunk finished third, but was disqualified due to an illegal carburetor placing him last. He redeemed himself Saturday night when a restart work3ed to his advantage, he moved into second and became the new leader on lap 24. The ten-time champion went on to score his second 30-Lap T.P. Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified All-American Racing Series feature of the season. Strunk also received $250 from T.P. Trailers and $150 worth of product from VP Racing Fuels provided he was carrying the proper decals.

Ron Kline was contacted by Junior Grebe and Wanda Brown on Thursday to see if he wanted to take over the Late Model ride normally driven by Dave Ogin. He accepted the offer, relettered the car to his familiar No. 3 and was back in action for the BRC Late Model feature. He led all 30 laps of the event and finished by a considerable margin over runner-up Bryon Sipe. Kline had not been in the winner’s circle since June 7, 2014. He also picked up an additional $100 from T.P. Trailers.

Richards by the Dozen

Josh Richards captures his 12th win of the season, 70th career series victory

NEW RICHMOND, Wisc. – August 4, 2016 – Josh Richards got his golden egg Thursday night, reaching one dozen wins at Cedar Lake Speedway’s USA Nationals preliminary show. It was Richards’ 70th career World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series win.

“From 2013-15 the track changed,” said Richards, who won the $6,000 purse. “But from last year to this year, the track was quite a bit different – with the surface and everything. We could race on it really well. I want to thank all the track guys for putting on this event and working hard on the track. This is the track to race on. Thanks to all the fans for coming out.”

Richards, who won his heat race earlier in the night, caught fire in the 30-lap feature. He was supposed to start fifth in the A-Main, but electrical failures in Jonathan Davenport’s car forced him to forfeit third position. This moved everyone up by one position. Davenport won the show last season, but helped others’ cases to win this time around.

Payea in Right Place at Right Time for Propane Plus 150 Win

Seekonk, MA – Scott Payea was the last man standing on a wild night at Massachusetts’ Seekonk Speedway on Saturday, July 16, taking the lead with three laps to go en route to his second American-Canadian Tour (ACT) win of the season in the Propane Plus 150.

Colchester, VT’s Payea had run a distant second to Brad Babb for much of the second half of the event, but the 12th caution of the night for ACT Late Model Tour point leader Nick Sweet’s spin on lap 141 set up a showdown between Babb, Payea, Eddie MacDonald, and Dillon Moltz. After Babb got off to a strong restart, Payea began inching back up on the outside as the laps wound down.

As Payea drew even with three laps remaining, MacDonald – who started last after arriving from Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway shortly before the green flag – dove three-wide on the backstretch, and contact entering turn three allowed Payea to leap out to the top spot. MacDonald and Babb continued bumping and eventually ended up in the turn two wall to bring out the red flag with two laps to go. Payea then held off Moltz on the race’s final restart for the victory.

Earning an extra $500 with a win in the night’s second Heat, Dover drew the pole for the night’s 25 lap A-Feature. Jumping to the point, the cushion was the place to be for the Home Pride Motorsports entry, as Dover led flag-to-flag at the high-banked, three-eighths mile oval.

While Dover was able to keep several restart attempts for the lead at bay, the race for second was seemingly non-stop as Tony Bruce, Jr. and Jonathan Cornell traded the runner-up spot throughout the race with Bruce making the last lap pass for the silver position in the Smith Racing No. 86. Cornell would have to settle for the bronze with Jordan Boston and Mitchell Moore completing the top-five.
