STAFFORD, Conn. – Ted Christopher already has the record for most wins at Stafford Motor Speedway but has no intention of slowing down.

STAFFORD, Conn. – A year ago, Ryan Preece was packing up the trailer and heading home after Tech-Net Spring Sizzler qualifying. The 17-year-old was in much better spirits Saturday afternoon after earning the Coors Light Pole Award for Sunday’s NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race at Stafford Motor Speedway.
Preece’s time of 18.057 seconds (99.684 mph) around the half-mile in the No. 3 Mizzy Construction/FJ Hubnay Chevrolet was fast enough to edge Eric Beers (No. 46 Reynold’s Wrecking/J&R Pre-Cast Chevrolet) and earn his first career pole. Beers was second in 18.084 (99.536).> More

Following a three-week layoff since the season-opener on April 6 at Thompson (Conn.)

THOMPSON, Conn. – Rain has ruined Ed Flemke Jr.’s day on more than one occasion. Flemke was more than happy, though, to see the overcast put an early end to Sunday’s race. Flemke’s No. 10 Ron Bouchard AutoParts Chevrolet was out front when rain forced the end of the scheduled 150-lap season-opening Icebreaker after 92 laps.
“I’ve lost many, many races like this,” Flemke said. “I finally won one like this. It’s a good feeling.”
It gave Flemke his 17th win in his 21-year NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour career.> More
Thompson, Conn. – James Civali may have been as surprised as anybody with his qualifying effort Saturday. Civali translated fast times in practice into his first career Coors Light Pole on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.

You can go from one tenth to another. You never think you’re going to get a pole. I never get a pole.”> More
