STAFFORD – For Cory DiMatteo, the Special Dunleavy’s Modifiedz Night SK Light Modified feature on June 9 proved to be a pain so to speak.

DiMatteo ended up wrecked out of the lead of the big money race with seven laps remaining.

“My butt was sore on that one for lack of a better term,” DiMatteo said.

Friday the Farmington driver found the perfect elixir for the pain.

DiMatteo held off the charges of George Nocera on the final lap to win the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature Friday at Stafford Motor Speedway.

It was the third victory in six starts this year for DiMatteo.

Nocera, of Plainville, finished second and Daniel Wesson of Monson, Mass. was third.

On lap 16 Chris Matthews went low under Geoff Nooney to take over the lead, with DiMatteo following in his tracks to second place.

A lap later DiMatteo used the low lane off of turn four to get by Matthews and take over the lead.

“I saw the flagger give us the [five laps to go signal] and you’re not going to win the race in third,” DiMatteo said. “So I saw a lane on the bottom there and stuck my nose in there and made it work. I didn’t wreck anyone, didn’t tear any cars up. It was a good move I thought. Aggressive move, but I think it’s what you have to be in this division because everyone is so freaking close you have to push that extra edge if the other driver is not willing to put their car there. That’s what made the difference tonight.”


  1. George from plainville is the man in the sky lites

    George from Plainville might be fourth cousin twice removed of Theodore Christopher. George also drinks prosecco 🥂 after the races.

    Not sure how you dominate “racing” at one track. Stafford, yeah maybe but not SK Light racing as a whole.
