“It’s great to have a Legend Cars National Qualifier event at Stafford,” said Stafford Legend Cars promoter David Arute. “The Nationals is the biggest race of the year for the Legend Cars and our NAPA Fall Final Legend Cars feature event should see some exciting racing for the win. We’re looking forward to awarding the race winner a spot in the Legends Nationals race.”
