STAFFORD – On June 26 in the season opening event at Stafford Speedway reigning Street Stock division champion Zach Robinson crossed the finish line first in the division’s feature, but never made the trip victory lane. 

Robinson was penalized immediately following the conclusion of the event for overaggressive driving on the final lap. 

Friday, with extra money on the line for the Midstate Site Development Firecracker 30 special feature for the Street Stock division, it was Robinson on a mission of redemption in second event of the season.

Robinson went by Adrien Paradis III for the lead on lap five and never trailed again on the way to victory in the 30-lap feature for the Street Stock division. 

“They might have taken it from us [in the last race], we weren’t going to let it happen again,” Robinson said. “This car has been amazing this year. I don’t even know where to start. We didn’t change much from last year. The best thing they did was take the restrictor plate away and this was amazing.” 

Robinson, of Putnam, collected an $800 winner’s purse thanks to the increased purse inflated by Midstate Site Development. 

“That’s really cool compared to our normal $200 or so for winning,” Robinson said. “That’s really really cool. I’ve got to give a big thank you to Midstate Site Development.”

Meg Fuller of Auburn, Mass. recovered from an early crash and chased Robinson to the line in second. Paradis, of Plainville, was third. 

“It feels great,” Robinson said. “I watched [Fuller] coming there at the end. She had a good car. We started to get a little free there.” 

Comments

  1. Other then the fact there were so many cautions every single feature had very entertaining moments.
    No Matt Buckler that wasn’t the largest field the Streets ever had. I know its before your time but the Streets in the early 1980’s were loaded with cars every week and packed with competitive cars. It was a time when you really had to earn a spot in the feature in a heat or consi.
    Anyway the field was terrific again. Fuller comes from the rear for a second with a damaged car. The Moose was fast and passed a lot of cars but just had bad luck. Very competitive and should be a great race tonight. It will be a shame if the Waterford guys bail on Stafford if the Speedbowl does open up.
