STAFFORD – Through his association through sponsorships that grew into close friendships, RH2Way owner Gino Difilippo Jr. grew to love the competition that is found in the SK Light Modified divisions around the state.

So much so that over the winter Difilippo decided to make his involvement in the division much more direct.

Difilippo, of Riverside, N.J., will debut his own SK Light Modified team this weekend at the NAPA Auto Parts Spring Sizzler at Stafford Motor Speedway.

Former Waterford Speedbowl SK Light Modified division champion Paul French of Andover will race Difilippo’s No. 76 car in the division’s 20-lap feature Saturday.

Difilippo said he will campaign the car part-time during the 2014 season with the schedule for events and tracks to be announced.

SK Light Modified division racing at Stafford and the Waterford Speedbowl will get a special boost in a few weeks thanks to RH2Way. Difilippo’s racing communications speciality company will be sponsoring extended distance SK Light Modified events at both tracks the weekend of May 16-17.

At Stafford Speedway the division will go an extra two laps on the half-mile oval on May 16. At the one-third mile Waterford Speedbowl it will be an extra three laps for the division on May 17.

“Stafford will be two extra laps because we go the extra mile for our customers,” Difilippo. said. “At Waterford it will be three extra laps because we still go the extra mile for our customers.”

Purse payouts for the top three finishers in each race will be increased courtesy of RH2Way.

Difilippo said there will also be a special $200 bonus prize given to a driver who runs the event at Stafford and the event at Waterford and comes up with the best combined finish for both events.

Any driver that runs both events will have his or her two finishing positions added together. The driver with the lowest number will win the bonus. The tiebreaker will go to the driver with the highest finishing spot between the two events. Any ties after that will result in a shared bonus.

Drivers must run an RH2Way decal on their cars to be eligible for the special bonus award. Decals are available at the RH2Way service area at the Waterford Speedbowl or at the No. 87 SK Light Modified trailer at Stafford Motor Speedway.
