Mr. Rooter Truck Series PR
When teams roll in to the Stafford Speedway April 22nd for race one of the Mr. Rooter Truck Series, they will have more on the line than ever in the history of the New England Truck Series. Foremost is the prestige of having a win at the 45th annual Spring Sizzler® presented by NAPA Auto Parts. This field of drivers would line up and race for that trophy alone. For this race there is much more.
Also on the line is a cool $1,000 dollar paycheck waiting for the winner. That driver will have to earn it though. Early entries have many veteran drivers return to the series. Duane Noll will be there and look out, the Dodges are back. The #99 Dunleavy’s Road Service Dodge of Alan Coates heads up the Mopar revolution.
There are a few Rookie of The Year contenders looking to make a mark too. Gary Modugno, a Beech Ridge regular has filed an entry. Eric Finkbein Jr, a second generation driver that knows his way around the Connecticut ovals will be there. New Hampshire’s Caleb Cashman is expected to make his first start at the famed oval.
The new Championship format is on many of the competitors minds. The Series Championship is a “Chase” format this season. Wins are key. The 151 of Bert Ouellette closed the 2015 season as the hottest driver on the series. The Burdick team is hungry for their first New England Truck Series Championship, and a win would be a huge step forward.
Finally there is the River National event in July to consider. The Riverhead Nationals pays a record purse. The race has a guaranteed starting spot up for grabs. Both Waterford Speedbowl events will also carry a guaranteed berth. Win The Mr. Rooter Series opener and you are guaranteed in.
