(Stafford Springs, CT)—New England Racing Fuel, Sunoco Brand has been part of the Stafford Speedway contingency program every year since the founding of the program prior to the 1999 season. The 2017 season will mark the 19th consecutive season that New England Racing Fuel owned by John Holland and Mike Joy have helped power drivers through the Contingency Program. Last season New England Racing Fuel distributed over $10,000 in gas certificates to Stafford Speedway drivers, the fuel company is slated to distribute that same amount in 2017.
“I really like how the SK Lights are growing,” said John Holland of New England Racing Fuel. “It seems like I see more news about new drivers joining that division and moving up from that division. The quality of that division gets better every season and that’s only going to eventually become a stronger SK Modified® division. I think the SK Modified® division is already the best racing at any track that I’ve gone to and I go to about 100 races a season. I always try to get to Stafford on a Friday night. The Late Model division also looks like it’s adding a few extra cars so we’re all looking forward to another exciting season of weekly racing at Stafford.”
New England Racing Fuel, Sunoco Brand will provide the top-3 finishers from the SK Modified®, Late Model, SK Light, Limited Late Model, and DARE Stock feature events with a $25 gas certificate. They will also support Stafford’s rookie drivers with the top finishing rookie driver from each Late Model, SK Light, Limited Late Model, and DARE Stock feature event also taking home a $25 gas certificate. With 22 races on the schedule, New England Racing Fuel, Sunoco Brand will offer competitors over $10,000 in gas certificates.
Sunoco is the Official Fuel of NASCAR and Stafford Speedway. Sunoco 112 Supreme and Sunoco GTX 260 can be purchased at the Sunoco Fuel truck found in Stafford’s paddock area every Friday night.
