TickMike To Sponsor Stafford SRX Event & SK Mod All-Star Showdown; Tickets On Sale January 15th


(Press Release from Stafford Motor Speedway)

Stafford Speedway and TickMike.com have announced the TickMike.com SK Modified® All-Star Showdown to run in conjunction with the Superstar Racing Experience event scheduled for Saturday, June 12th.  A fixture in the Stafford paddock for many seasons, TickMike.com will also serve as the presenting sponsor for the inaugural SRX event.

“SK Modified® racing is some of the best racing around and an All-Star race is what these drivers deserve,” explained Tyler Meyhoefer of TickMike.com.  “Our family has been involved with racing since back in the 60’s. We really enjoy coming to the track and supporting the race teams and want to see short track racing live on and succeed.”

The TickMike.com SK Modified® All-Star Showdown will showcase the top SK Modified® drivers in a 50-lap event featuring a purse of $20,000.  The top-15 in Stafford SK Modified® points will be locked into the field along with SK Modified® past champions.  Race fans can expect a unique all-star style race format for the non-points event.

“This event is going to be big,” explained Stafford Speedway COO Paul Arute.  “Mike approached us last season with the idea of an All-Star race and at the time it really didn’t fit into our schedule.  With the addition of Tony Stewart and Ray Evernham’s Superstar Racing Experience event in June, it made perfect sense to showcase our SK Modified® drivers with an All-Star event alongside the stars of the SRX series.” 

TickMike.com is a family operated producer and distributor of all natural eco-friendly home owner use pesticides featuring their signature Tick and Mosquito spray.  Visit TickMike.com for more information and to order their products. 

The TickMike.com SK Modified® All-Star Showdown will run in conjunction with the star studded SRX Racing Series.  The new series, led by racing legends Tony Stewart and Ray Evernham, will debut at Stafford Speedway on Saturday, June 12th before embarking on a 6-race schedule featuring some of the most historic tracks in the country including Eldora Speedway, Knoxville Raceway, Lucas Oil Raceway Park, Slinger Speedway, and Nashville Fairgrounds.

“We are honored that Tony and Ray have chosen Stafford to launch their series,” continued Arute.  “We have been very impressed with how the SRX team has approached this new series with a fan’s first mentality.  It will be a treat to see guys from different racing disciplines like Helio Castroneves, Mark Webber, and Bobby Labonte tackle Stafford.”

  1. I gather that June 12 is a night event (given the CBS broadcast – live? – at 8:00 pm) – correct?

  2. so season ticket holders dont get tickets for this event with their already purchased season tickets. It would have been a nice gesture if Stafford included it for them considering last year they were supposed to have 3 Whelen races had 1 and an open pro stock race which was postponed to this year then cancelled in favor of a pro stock tour race. They did get in a good amount of races which was actually really impressive. Stafford should be applauded for that. I guess this event wasnt announced until after the schedule and season tickets were priced. So probably shouldnt complain about it. It just seems like a missed opportunity to make their season ticket holders feel appreciated especially after what happened last season though no fault of Stafford. What are they charging for this event? Are people really excited about this? They have like 10 or 12 drivers. Are they going to fill out the field with more drivers? I hope so, how good of a show can 12 cars put on? I think the SK race will be the far better feature that night will the undercard be broadcasted on CBS? Thank you to TickMike for his support of this show.

    -looks like 12 cars. 8 for the duration and 4 including other top drivers, local and perhaps a celebrity hopefully
    -two hours that is closer to an hour and 20 minutes of race time. They may not know yet what the actual races will be. They want them short, allow adjustments then go again stressing competition.
    -local divisions like the SK’s who knows. Might be a pre show warm up with highlights during the broadcast or live. 40 laps of SK’s can take 15 to 50 minutes. Good luck budgeting that time slot.
    -asphalt at Stafford then on to dirt for two shows. The cars are a hybrids. It’s anyone’s guess how they will perform.
    -Stafford the perfect place to start out even will capacity limits. Everyone gets their feet wet with a total unknown race product. Then it’s off to the bigger venues with a base of expectations and rivalries to build on.

    This traditionally is a stock car racing audience so the drivers of interest are those with stock car racing pedigrees. There’s a whole world of other series out that with fans that will be drawn to the big names other then stock cars drivers. Stafford has an obligation to it’s most loyal fans but they must also consider the fans of other types of racing when prioritizing ticket sales.
    We can see SK races every Friday night. This is more getting that division and Stafford exposure to get more eyeballs on the racing at Stafford in the future. It’s hoping it’s a good race, that the drivers understand it’s their responsibility to be at their best and make the right decisions since millions could be watching. You don’t want to be on the bonehead highlight reel. I’m guessing competition will be at fever pitch in the SK’s starting from the first race at Stafford to qualify to be in this event.
    I’m fired up. Not just for the Stafford segment but think there is a possibility we fans get invested in the series and drivers as it unfolds and builds week by week. Asphalt, dirt, various track configurations and non regulars in the mix to give the regulars problems as they try to claim bragging right when it’s all done.
    All you jaded, snobby stock car racing fans keeping this at arms length for now. Be careful, you may get sucked into this as a regular watcher with strong opinions on what happens if you’re not careful.
