As the 2018 season winds down, Stafford Motor Speedway has been preparing for the 2019 season starting with finalizing rules for all divisions.

The changes to the 2019 SK Light division are the overall car weight and an updated MSD box.

For 2019, the minimum car weight for the SK Light division will be 2,645 lbs and the car weight after the race has been adjusted to a minimum of 2,632 lbs.

A mandatory MSD #8727CT digital RPM limiter set at 6,000-RPM is the other change for the 2019 season.

The 2018 SK Light season has seen a pair of former Wild Thing Kart drivers leading the way with Bryan Narducci and Marcello Rufrano separated by only 20 points at the top of the standings.

SK Light veteran Mark Bakaj is making a late championship push and he is 60 points out of the lead.

Rufrano leads all drivers with 6 wins this season with Narducci tied for second with Andrew Molleur on 3 wins each.

Narducci isn’t the only rookie driver to find NAPA Victory Lane this season as Teddy Hodgdon, another former Wild Thing Kart driver, just scored his first win last week.

  1. Bill Realist says

    Those msd boxes should be held by the track and distributed to the teams via blind draw every week. You can start your car and tune it during the week with your own. It’s not that big of an expense….unless…..

    Not a good idea at all Bill, the first time a track supplied box fails there will be a deserved big stink about it. what Stafford really needs to do is smarten up and put spotters in the class to prevent incidents like last Friday when the 45 and 99 went piling into a crash that was half a track ahead of them. It will never happen though. Stafford does what Stafford wants to do nobody’s input is valid. Not everyone needs spotters, some people though, absolutely, Its a useful tool when needed.

  3. No Spotter says

    Racing has been excellent all summer without spotters. Geoff, you had one bad night threw a fit on the start-finish line. You want spotters move up to SKs or keep running you SK Light in the SK field at the bowl. If you had a spotter Geoff, you’d be complaining about blocking…shut-up and race!

  4. You can make the argument for spotters in any division. Here’s the problem. It adds a layer of complication and personnel that some teams no doubt can deal with. But somewhere in the field there is a person trying to break the top 10 for the first time that doesn’t have the resources for the added complication. That puts him or her at an added disadvantage in a learning division.
    The SK Lights have delivered the best racing of any division at Stafford this year. Moreover statistically it would appear their rate of crashes is not higher then the SK’s that have similar sized fields and spotters.
    Of the five events I’ve gone to this year 3 times the Lights stolen the show and left the crowd on their feet as the checkered flag dropped. Why muck with something that isn’t broke.
    Stafford can fix a lot of things that could be better. The SK Lights is not one.
