STAFFORD – Brett Gonyaw summed up his evening succinctly Friday at Stafford Motor Speedway.

“You’ve got to be there to get there,” the Vernon driver said.

There was victory lane for Gonyaw, who won the Dunleavy’s Truck & Trailer Modifiedz Night 40-lap SK Light Modified feature Friday at Stafford Motor Speedway.

It was the first victory at Stafford for Gonyaw, who took home over $2,700 for the victory in the highest paying SK Light Modified feature in the history of the division.

Bob Charland of Stafford was second and Glenn Griswold third. Jay Goff of Stafford, making his final career start in the division, was fourth.

The race was marred by a number of nasty wrecks and cautions.

Gonyaw inherited the lead after George Nocera and Cory DiMatteo wrecked in a battle for the top spot on lap 34.

“We didn’t have the best luck in the past couple weeks,” Gonyaw said. “It seems like we’re in the podium or in the wall here. Hopefully we can keep this streak going.”

  1. Great show for the fans but Unfortunately a lot of Torn up equipment for the competitors!

    This race sucked. I left before it was over. Crashfest. These drivers cannot race 40 laps. They are much better at 20. Yes I realize they are a learning division. Before halfway there was only 15 cars left. They started 26. That is a lot of dollars in crashed racecars for such a small purse. I applaud Dunlevy for what he tried to do. Maybe next time try 25 laps instead of 40. Why are some drivers still running in this division. The 07 Jay Goff comes to mind. I guess this was his last race. This was supposed to be a learning division not a life time profession. You are supposed to run a few years like 2 or 3 then move up not make a life time of it. The same thing comes to mind in the Dare stock cars with Johnny Walker in the 01. Move up already. What is he going to say? I made a career out of driving a Dare stock at Stafford. This makes me think of Kyle Bush running the Xfinity series. What is he thinking when he wins a race? I just beat all these rookie drivers. Hooray for me. What a jerk.
    Sorry, done ranting.

  3. Opinion hole says:

    Joe, You’re a D

  4. Don’t remember seeing any cars that said sponsored by Joe White, but I’m sure BIG JOE will come thru and Jay and Jonny can move up soon

  5. The Korner kids are good but have a lot to learn, they both wrecked a lot of equipment on Friday night

  6. Joe White says:

    Dear Elect, It is not my job to sponsor the racecars. If I were rich I would. If a guy wants to race his car then he needs to go and pound on doors and get sponsorship. How do other drivers race SK cars? They all need sponsorship to race.
    When the Dare stock division first started out a driver could not win more than 2 races per season. I can remember a driver leading the race and she had to slow down and let another driver pass her because she had already won twice that year. I wonder whatever happened to that rule? Yes I said she. There were some really good girl racers in the dare stock division. There were also 4 girls driving SKL cars for a couple of years. One of them was Ryan Preese’s wife Heather and she was good. She won a few races. What happened to the girls? Anyway, after a few years in these learning divisions the drivers were encouraged to move up by the speedway officials. Perhaps you missed my point about Kyle Bush beating the Xfinity rookies every week. Who wants to watch that?

  7. Joe you should just quit while you’re behind . Everytime you speak you make yourself look worse then the post before . First of all the sk division was created because the modifieds were out of hand with the engines and now almost 40 years later it is the same with the ski’s. If a guy can’t afford to race because of money who the —- are you to tell him he can’t race in a division he can afford ? you are a complete idiot if you think that all racers are sponsored by a big time corporation or any joe smoe With wads of money to throw away .Most of the racers even in the sk’ do it with their own money or their own business money If these Sponsor ‘s were that easy to get by going door to door everybody would be racing even a bloke like you . Please joe don’t post bad things about guys just trying to do what they love .

  8. I agree with Joe on Dare was a beginner division – now with the rules the way they are now it has become too expensive to race without a lot of money…. Racers used to build there own cars and engines – today everything is built with money, now you can’t build your own engine – it takes away from the fun of racing a car in my opinion, never mind the extra cost.
