Saturday night could be that kind of night at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

Keith Rocco has two attempts to become the track’s all-time winningest driver. Rocco, of Wallingford, tied the mark last Saturday with a victory in the Late Model division, matching Phil Rondeau’s 106 career victories. He competes in both the Late Model and SK Modified divisions at the track this weekend.

At Stafford the DARE Stock division gets its big night with the running of the Xtramart Xtra D 20-lap event for the division that normally runs 15-lap features.
