It will be a new look for MJC Motorsports and driver Kelsey Rottino in 2014 at Stafford Motor Speedway.
Rottino, of Willimantic, had nine top-five’s and 13 top-10’s in 18 DARE Stock division starts in 2013 on the way to a sixth place finish in the standings.
MJC Motorsports team owner Michael Cote said moving Rottino up opened up a spot in his organization to move McNeil, of Preston, in. McNeil will take over the team’s DARE Stock ride previously piloted by Rottino.
“Kelsey Rottino was going to drive the MJC Motorsports DARE Stock again this year and contend for the championship,” Cote said. “We ended up acquiring a Limited Late Model and decided to go that route. I saw that Bill McNeil was looking for a Stafford ride and I have been trying to Bill Stafford for a few years now.”
Cote said the organization is currently seeking sponsorship for both the Limited Late Model and DARE Stock cars.
