Spark VR joins Stafford’s contingency program for 2020 by posting a 2nd place weekly bonus of $100 in the highly competitive SK Light Modified division. The 2020 season for the SK Light Modifieds is set to showcase new drivers along with multiple perennial contenders returning for a shot at the title. 2019 race winners Noah Korner, Alex Pearl, Wesley Prucker, and Mark Bakaj are all set to return to the field in 2020 while countless others return looking to get back to NAPA Victory Lane. With 43 teams already registered for the upcoming season there will be plenty of action week to week.
One of the favorites entering 2020 is 2019 Rookie of the Year and championship runner-up Steven Chapman. Chapman is a regular at Spark VR in Vernon turning laps at Stafford Speedway on one of the 5 sim racing setups the store offers. Though Chapman and the #14 team have still yet to crack into NAPA Victory Lane, they will be one of the teams to watch in 2020.
