Stafford’s SK Modified® & Late Model Weekly Purses Increasing in 2018
 Stafford Motor Speedway 
Posted by:  Scott Running on March 20, 2018 at 9:04am

(Stafford Springs, CT)---Capping off a pre-season of improved purse structures, Stafford Speedway management is proud to announce the SK Modified® and Late Model divisions will be receiving an enhanced purse in 2018.   These increases for the SK and Late Model divisions follow the previously announced purse increases for the SK Lights, Limited Late Model, and Street Stocks.

“Our commitment is 100% behind our weekly competitors and we will continue to focus our efforts in supporting their programs,” explained Stafford Speedway General Manager Mark Arute.   “We are looking at a strong contingent of drivers and teams for the SK Modified® and Late Model divisions and the increased weekly payouts will ensure an exciting season.”

Both the Late Model and SK Modified® weekly purses will increase by just under 10% for the new season.   The SK Modified® division will have a base purse of $1,500 to win with a total purse of $8,560 while the Late Model base purse will be moved to $800 to win with a total purse of $5,375.   Last place payout will move to $150 and $120 for the SK Modified® and Late Models respectively.

“We have a great group of contingency sponsors supporting all our divisions for the 2018 season,” continued Mark Arute.   “Between their support and the increase in the weekly base purse, 2018 is shaping up to be a great year for our weekly program.   With our signed contingency partners, Starrett Tools and Dunleavy’s Truck and Trailer Repair, the SK feature pays $1,800 to win, $150 to start, while the Late Model feature will pay $925 to win, $120 to start with the additional bonus from iRacing.   We have boosted payouts throughout the entire field for both divisions and continue to work with potential contingency sponsors to keep adding to these weekly numbers.”

With under 50 days till the NAPA Auto Parts Spring Sizzler and the official start to the 2018 race season at Stafford Speedway drivers and teams are busy preparing for the new season.   In the SK Modified® division, 2017 track champion Keith Rocco comes into the new season as the heavy favorite after a dominant end to last season.   The Late Model division is shaping up to be another highly competitive season with 7 of the 8 feature winners from 2017 returning to the division in 2018.    Glen Reen, the 2017 Late Model champion will enter the season as an early favorite but will be contested by the deep field including former champions Michael Bennett and Tom Fearn.  

The 2018 Stafford Motor Speedway season kicks off with the 47th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Spring Sizzler® on April 27-29. Tickets for the “Greatest Race in the History of Spring” are on sale now at the Speedway Box Office.
