For the 3rd consecutive season Stafford Speedway will host Modified Open 80 events. New for 2020, Stafford will play host to 4 Modified Open events running once per month in May, June, July, and August. Registration for 2020 Modified Open 80 events is now open with registration available online at staffordspeedway.com or by contacting the track office. Team’s registering early and for all four Modified Open 80 events will be given a registration discount.
“Each of our Modified Open events in 2019 were great races,” explained Stafford CEO Mark Arute. “We put this deal together back in 2018 to provide a better on track product for race fans and a better experience for teams and drivers. We’ve added a fourth Modified Open event in 2020 which puts us at one per month.”
To date 5 Modified Open 80 events have been held at the half-mile since the first in June of 2018. In 5 events, 5 different winners have broke into NAPA Victory Lane including Tommy Barrett, Eric Goodale, Keith Rocco, Ryan Preece, and Ronnie Williams. The event has become a battle of Stafford regulars vs. Stafford invaders which many fans and drivers have come to enjoy.
“We’ve had a good mix of Stafford regulars and Stafford invaders,” continued Arute. “Our race fans like to see guys like Eric Goodale, Tommy Barrett and Jeff Gallup come out and try and best the local favorites like Keith Rocco, Ronnie Williams, and Todd Owen. We’re looking forward to another season of great racing in each of the 80 lap events.”
The first race of the season for the Open Modifieds is slated for Friday, May 15th with the 3rd Annual Twisted Tea Open 80 scheduled just under a month later on Friday, June 12th. The fan favorite Bud Light Open 80 returns Friday, July 10th, and the final event of the season for the Open Modifieds, the Lincoln Tech 80, will be held Friday, August 21st.
