Story By: SCOTT RUNNING / STAFFORD MOTOR SPEEDWAY- STAFFORD SPRINGS, CT – Olson Apartments of Feeding Hills, MA have renewed their commitment to Stafford Speedway’s SK Light contingency program for the 2020 season.
Entering their fifth 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. Stafford’s SK Light drivers will have 22 opportunities this season to take home the Olson Apartments bonus.
“We’ve enjoyed supporting the SK Lights at Stafford and we’re looking forward to another new season,” said Mark Olson, Owner of Olson Apartments. “I really enjoy being able to not only support the drivers but walking through the pits and being able to meet and talk with drivers from all 5 divisions, not just the SK Lights, is a lot of fun for me. I’m looking forward to some more exciting open wheel racing this season.”
“We’re happy to once again welcome Olson Apartments back to the SK Light contingency program for 2020,” said Stafford CEO Mark Arute. “Olson Apartments has been a great partner to work with the past few years and we thank them for their contributions to the SK Light division.”
