(Press release from Stafford Speedway)

Stafford Motor Speedway will host the 47th Annual NAPA Fall Final Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, September 28 & 29 to close out its 2019 NASCAR season of racing. 

Along with its 5 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions, the NAPA Fall Final will include the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Vintage All Stars, and the Ladies Challenge for a total of 8 feature events during the weekend.

The NAPA Fall Final Weekend will kick off on Saturday, September 28 with practice sessions for the Whelen Modified Tour, Stafford’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions and the Vintage All Stars from 10:00am to 2:15pm.  The Whelen Modified Tour will take to the track for group qualifying at 2:30pm with Stafford’s NWAAS divisions and Vintage All Stars qualifying to follow.  Feature events for the Street Stocks, Limited Late Models, Vintage All Stars and Ladies Challenge will conclude Saturday’s festivities.  

In addition to determining who will win the 2019 track championship, the Street Stock feature event will be the third and final Triple Crown race of the 2019 season.  Street Stock drivers have been accumulating Triple Crown points all season long and the winning driver will take home a $1,000 bonus from a prize pool of $4,500 that will be distributed among the top-10 finishers in the Triple Crown standings.  Meghan Fuller currently leads the Triple Crown standings with Zack Robinson close behind.   

The Ladies Challenge will showcase Street Stock cars driven by ladies that are affiliated with Stafford race teams.  The drivers are competing in a shoot-out race and also raising money for a variety of charities.  The starting order will be determined by the amount of money raised by each driver.  For a list of drivers participating along with their selected charities or to make a donation please visit

  1. WOW! Another racing season has come and gone. Seems like only last week we were making our picks for the Ice breaker. Waterford has yet to open. Rob Fuller now owns Troyer. Car counts are slowly creeping up at Stafford, and Ryan Preece is competing in cup. Just a few of the headlines in 2019. What will 2020 bring us?

  2. Well said Rob.
    Waterford has indeed gone out with a whimper. Serluca for all intents and purposes has abandoned promotion of an eventual open on social media. In it’s place he is supporting “good guys” with guns, vacation updates and a foul references to a football announcer. Perpetual teaser of a Speedbowl first race Blaise Brodeur has given up teasing the track and is busy trying to stay relevant in local racing doing his bit at other tracks. Maybe the Speedbowl grape vine has the word on what is up at that track but from the outside it seems really uncool they haven’t given an update this close to the end of the season.
    My big take aways from this year is the strength of the NWMT, the shake out of modified touring/opens with regard to clear winners and losers and the number of Stafford SK teams that for whatever reason decided to invest in Stafford Opens by building tour modifieds.
    Biggest joy has been the SK battle at Stafford that should go down to the fall final and biggest disappointment the imbalance in the SK Lights at Stafford.

  3. How many different winners this year vs last year in the skl? I thought most were won by two drivers last year?

  4. On a similar pace to last year. Had eight different winners in 21 events last year, with one being a first-time winner (Alexander Pearl) in the final event of the season. Have six different winners through 18 events this year.

    2018 – Eight different SK Light Modified winners in 21 events at Stafford Speedway
    Marcello Rufrano – 6
    Bryan Narducci – 5
    Andrew Molleur – 4
    Mark Bakaj – 2
    Teddy Hodgdon IV – 1
    Joey Ferrigno – 1
    George Nocero Jr. – 1
    Alexander Pearl – 1

    2019 – Six different SK Light Modified winners in the first 18 events at Stafford Speedway
    Bryan Narducci – 8
    Teddy Hodgdon IV – 3
    Noah Korner – 2
    Alexander Pearl – 2
    Mark Bakaj – 2
    Wesley Prucker – 1

  5. Asterisk
    Narducci had two wins taken away as well on penalties.

  6. All in all 2019 has been a good year. With the exception of Tom Fearn in the Kate Models, all the points races are really close, and will most likely come down to the fall final. It’s good to see the Late Model field getting larger, and hopefully with no rules changes will gain more cars next year. The SK division has given us some of the best racing in the northeast, with a stable full or almost full field each week. Same for the lites. The Arute family continue to make improvements to the property, and strive to be the best in New England. The family atmosphere there is great, and it was cool to see the kids included in the Friday night festivities, with the wild thing carts and the big wheel races among other activities. Although it’s sad that the season will soon be over, and winter will be upon us, can’t wait to see what 2920 brings.
