    IN YOUR OPINION, who is the best late model driver of all-time at Stafford Motor Speedway?

  2. darealgoodfella,
    I’d say Ryan Posocco.

  3. Andy Boright says

    Are the Limited Sportsman drivers included in this class? If so that would open up the polling for the likes of Tommy Rosati, Mike Stefanik, Jerry Marquis, etc.

    If not, I might be inclined to go with someone like Tony Sylvester or Phil Rondeau (who did it everywhere).

  4. Joe Lajoie says

    That’s pretty easy.
    Jimmy Ward.
    It’s funny how the track doesn’t even acknowledge his accomplishments. It’s like the street stock era didn’t even exist. Stafford’s late model records only count from 1987 to present (when the division name was changed from super stocks to late models) even though the actual class remained the basically the same thoughout the 80’s.

  5. James Scott says

    Joe my thoughts exactly.

  6. It’s impossible to compare drivers from different era’s
    back in the day (Ward, Cote, Fiandaca, Knapp days) – the front runners had to pass 10 cars in the heat to qualify. then they would have to start deep in the field just ahead of the consi cars (if they weren’t one of them) to get to the front. They had to do it with cars that they raced 3 times a week and out race 35-40 cars a night.
