Story By: SCOTT RUNNING / STAFFORD MOTOR SPEEDWAY – STAFFORD SPRINGS, CT – Olson Apartments of Feeding Hills, MA has renewed their commitment in Stafford Speedway’s SK Light contingency program for the 2018 season.
Entering their third consecutive season as a contingency partner, Olson Apartments will provide a weekly $75 bonus to the third place finisher in each SK Light feature event this season.
“We’re looking forward to another great season of SK Light racing and enjoying the Friday night races at the track,” said Mark Olson, Owner of Olson Apartments. “I really like being able to watch the races in person at the track and the SK Lights never fail to disappoint with the level of excitement. I’m happy to be able to help the racers out and I can’t wait for the season to get started.”
The 2018 SK Light season has all the promise of being the most exciting season of competition in the division’s 13th season of existence. The fight for wins and podium places will be spread among a hodgepodge of veteran and rookie drivers. The SK Lights currently have 11 rookie drivers signed up for competition in 2018, including Bryan Narducci, Alexander Pearl, Amanda West, Mikey Flynn, and Teddy Hodgdon, who are all graduates of the Monday night Wild Thing Kart Series. Those rookie drivers will do battle on a weekly basis against returning race winners like Joey Ferrigno, Brett Gonyaw, Glenn Griswold, Wesley Prucker, Marcello Rufrano, and Dan Wesson.
“We’re thrilled that Olson Apartments has continued their commitment to the SK Light contingency program for the 2018 season,” said Stafford GM/COO Mark Arute. “Any time we can put bonus money into the hands of our drivers, with partners like Olson Apartments, it’s a good thing.”
