Unmuffled Quickcast: Reactions From The Pits To Keith Rocco Feat At Stafford Speedway

STAFFORD – On Friday night at Stafford Speedway Keith Rocco became the first driver in track history to win six consecutive SK Modified feature events. Rocco has won the first four events of the 2018 season and won the final two events of the 2017 season.

Before Friday the record for consecutive Modified victories was five straight, which had been accomplished first by Ted Christopher in 2004 and then matched by Woody Pitkat in 2007, and then by Rocco on May 11.

Friday after the 40-lap SK Modified feature at Stafford we caught up with Rocco to talk about the feat, and also podium finishers Joey Cipriano who was second and Eric Berndt, who finished third.

  1. For all the race geeks out there how about this. In the SK Lights the three diaper dandies, Narducci, Moeller and Alexander Pearl improved their starting positions by a total of 37 or 12.3 positions on average. 10 people in the rest of the field improved 56 positions for an average of 5.6 positions.
    Narducci again had the quickest race lap of 19.43 that puts him somewhere around 20th place in the SK feature give or take.

  2. Food for thought. What determines the pecking order in race divisions. Is it field size, lap times, body style, experience of the drivers? The Late Model guys are some hard nose suns of guns with resumes in some cases spanning decades. But 9 cars. And they’re slipping and sliding in the corners and wasting that great power turning in lap times in the 21 second range or 86 MPH. The SK Lights are showing up with 25 plus cars, turning laps under 20 seconds or a speed 91ish MPH. And they pass a lot.

  3. Rocco, sheesh. What can you do. Want to hate the guy but he’s passing a ton of cars, does it clean and shows up in victory lane with someone from that beautiful family. And consistent. Wins with a best lap time of 18.97 last week and 18.98 this week. Who else is as fast, Eric Berndt. Faster actually at his best and is passing a lot of cars like Rocco. Tic, toc, it’s only a matter of time for the Bulldog. Unexpected guys to watch at the front Michael Gervais and Troy Talman. Talman imporving 11 positions and turning in a best lap time of 19.10.
