NAPA Auto Parts Kicking Off 2016 Season at Stafford Speedway with Contingency Bonus for SK Modified® Teams

2016-OWEN-SK-4(Stafford Springs, CT) — Stafford Motor Speedway has announced that NAPA Auto Parts, the Elite Corporate Sponsor and Official Auto Parts of Stafford, will offer a unique contingency bonus to SK Modified® drivers during the 45th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Spring Sizzler®.

NAPA Auto Parts will provide each driver in the SK Modified® feature starting field a bonus of $45 in recognition of the 45th Annual NAPA Spring Sizzler®. With 27 cars scheduled to take the green flag, the NAPA bonus will total over $1,200 in awards for the starting field. All a driver has to do in order to collect their bonus is display a NAPA Auto Parts decal on their car.

2016-PITKAT-SIZZLER-5“This is a great way for us to begin our third season together,” said Mark Arute, Stafford Speedway COO/GM. “In only 2 short years, NAPA Auto Parts has shown that they’re not afraid to try new things such as our NAPA SK 5k event or the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund Track Walk. This contingency bonus is just another unique idea from NAPA Auto Parts that continues their trend of thinking outside the box to bring new and fresh ideas to short track racing and with over $1,200 up for grabs, we think it’s a great bonus for our premier SK Modified® division.”

The 45th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Spring Sizzler kicks off on Saturday, April 23 with Coors Light Pole Qualifying for the Whelen Modified Tour cars, along with heat and consolation races for Stafford’s weekly divisions, the U.S. Legend Cars, and the Mr. Rooter Trucks.
