The half-mile Stafford Motor Speedway has proved historically to be a layout that even the most successful drivers have struggled with early on. 

Chris Meyer arrived in the Street Stock division at Stafford last year with an impressive resume of success, but little experience at the track. He ultimately bucked the trend of many who have early frustrations finding the fast way around. Meyer proved to be fast out of the gate and only got better as the 2020 season progressed. 

He finished the season second in the Street Stock standings with two victories, nine top-five’s and 13 top-10’s in 14 starts. He credits much of his success to his father, his crew and the tutelage of longtime Stafford competitor Jay Stuart.  

“I’ve had hundreds of hours of conversations with Jay Stuart about racing different race tracks,” Meyer said during the most recent episode of the Unmuffled podcast. “And so I had a good sense of confidence going in. Not that we were going to win right off the bat, but that I could go there and make adjustments and I had the people to talk and the people to work with in order to make the improvements over the year to be better.” 

Meyer, who won the 2017 Sportsman division championship at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl and has 24 career victories at the shoreline oval, goes into the 2021 season at Stafford leading the pack of favorites to contend for the Street Stock championship.
