First “Dirty Dozen” Entry Comes From A Homegrown Hero

Stafford Springs, CT. --

Bobby Santos of Franklin, Ma is the first entry in both the 30 lap non-winged midget race and the 100-lap PRA Big Car race that rumbles into Stafford Motor Speedway on Tuesday night, August 15th. His dual entry qualifies him as a member of the “Dirty Dozen” - drivers seeking a $50,000 bonus posted by Valvoline, CARQUEST Auto Parts and the track for any driver who can sweep both events that evening.

Santos is bringing some heavy hardware in his quest to sweep both events. His midget and “Big Car” rides both come out of the legendary Bob East racing stable and get their power from Ford Engines.

The #4 Clorox midget that Santos will wheel has already been to victory lane on the USAC National Midget circuit. Santos wheeled to an impressive win the night before this year’s Indianapolis 500 at the 5/8 mile O’Reilly Raceway Park, and another victory at the Columbus Speedway. He also has a second place finish with the car as well as a win in his Santos Racing entry earned at the Concord Motorsports Park back in May.

The Beast Big Car that Santos brings to “The Big One Presented By CARQUEST” captured USAC’s Silver Crown owner’s championship for Santos’ current owner Bob East last season. The Ford powered #6 went to Victory Lane four times last season with Dave Steele aboard.

The 100-lap Big Car race is the first time in Northeast history that the biggest open wheel open cockpit cars in America visit. It isn’t however, Santos’ first trip to Stafford. He took the top honors in the midget division on Tuesday, July 11th and runs often at the half-mile. “Not since “Boston Louie” Seymour has this region has as big a USAC name to call their own,” observed ABC/ESPN Sportscaster and Stafford track president Jack Arute. “Bobby Santos has put New England back on the open cockpit-open wheel map. We are honored to have him file the first entry for this history making event.”

Santos is the first of what should be many top USAC names that will tackle the Stafford half-mile. In addition, many of the PRA’s top stars have also expressed an interest in pursuing the VALVOLINE $50,000 Challenge and are seeking midget rides for the 15th.

To expedite entry filing, entry forms for Stafford Speedway's history making PRA Big Car and non-winged midget event are now available to interested drivers and teams on Stafford's web site, www.staffordspeedway.com. A link from the PRA Big Car web site, www.praracing.com, will also send interested teams to the entry blank web page.
