(Stafford Springs, CT)—Stafford Motor Speedway has announced that Olson Apartments of Feeding Hills, MA has signed on to become the newest member of the tracks’ Contingency Program for the 2016 season. Olson Apartments will furnish a weekly $75 bonus to the third place finisher in each SK Light feature event this season. Olson Apartments’ contingency award, combined with contingency awards from SK Light contingency partners, Dunleavy Truck & Trailer Repair, Maybury Material Handling, On Time Accounting and New England Racing Fuel means that SK Light driver’s contingency awards are in excess of $10,000 throughout the season.
“I used to go to Stafford years ago and I kind of got out of going to the track once my kids were born,” said Mark Olson, Owner of Olson Apartments. “Mike Margiotta from On-Time Accounting is a good friend of mine and he asked me if I wanted to go to the track one night last season. I’ve always been a race fan, I love the modifieds, and I was really impressed with how the show was run with 6 divisions. The trip that I took to the track with Mike really helped to top everything off. I thought I’d help some of the drivers out with a contingency bonus and it gives me an excuse to get out to the track every Friday night to watch the races.”
Olson Apartments serves the Agawam and West Springfield areas with efficiency 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and they have been offering professional service with a personal touch since 1977. For apartment availabilities and more information, please visit them online at www.olsonapartments.net or call Mark Olson at 413-786-6462.
