Thompson and Stafford Stars Continue Conquest of Division IV Championship

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. --

Star Speedway’s Mitch Wendell continues to climb, breaks into top 10 after fourth win

(Sept. 6, 2006) – Although Woody Pitkat and Jeff Malave have made most of the headlines this season by swapping the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division IV points lead on several occasions, any one of 11 different drivers from Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway or Stafford Motor Speedway, in Stafford Springs, Conn., could have a mathematical chance of winning the $25,000 NDWS Division IV championship.

Pitkat, of Stafford, Conn., and Malave, of Manchester, Conn., both race full-time at both tracks, along with a handful of other drivers including Keith Rocco, of Wallingford, Conn. The dual-track schedule – these two tracks are located just 29 miles part – gives them opportunities to gain extra points towards the NDWS Division IV championship.

Only one driver from each track can be ranked in the NDWS Division IV standings, so the key is holding the NASCAR point lead at one particular track. Pitkat and Malave have made this into a monumental task in itself.

At Thompson, which holds NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series races on Thursdays, Pitkat leads Malave in the NASCAR points by a four-point margin (836-832).

At Stafford, which hosts races on Fridays, Frank Ruocco leads with 798 NASCAR points while Pitkat and Malave are tied for third, 36 points behind Ruocco. Sandwiched in between Ruocco and these two deadlocked championship contenders at Stafford is Todd Owen, of Somers, Conn., with 762 points.

Both Thompson and Stafford have four races remaining on their respective schedules, for a total of eight potential events for these drivers to make a final drive for the championship. In addition, nearby Waterford (Conn.) Speedbowl offers a third option for these racers on Saturday nights.

Meanwhile, Mitch Wendell, of Derry, N.H., cracked the top 10 in the standings for the first time this season, after recording his fourth Super Street win at Star Speedway in Epping, N.H. It was the third win in the last six starts for Wendell, who has shown steady improvement as the season progressed. Wendell was not ranked until he came from behind to take over the NASCAR point lead at Star and earn a spot on the NDWS Division IV leaderboard on Aug. 1 – the same week in which Wendell began his successful six-race streak.
