Chris Meyer calls the 2022 season at Stafford Speedway: “An all or nothing season for us.”

After more than a decade of competing regularly at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl and Thompson Speedway Meyer made the move to Stafford for the 2020 season. He has finished second in the Street Stock standings the last two seasons at Stafford.

Meyer said when he came to Stafford in 2020 he was looking to run one more season and then step away from competition. After two seasons of enjoying life competing at the historic half-mile the North Franklin driver is now ready to move up to the Late Model division at Stafford in 2023. He said racing at Stafford has changed his outlook greatly.

“It makes all the difference in the world,” Meyer said of competing at Stafford on the latest edition of the Unmuffled podcast. “Before we went to Stafford in 2020 we were pretty distraught with some of the things that were happening at Thompson [Speedway] and the uncertainty with the [New London-Waterford] Speedbowl. We were kind of looking at maybe doing one more year and hanging it up. … I can tell you with the amount of time and effort they put into that race track, and the money they put in that race track, we are reinvested.

“This is actually going to be our last year racing the Street Stocks. We’re building a brand new Late Model to move up to the Late Model division for 2023. We’ve never had any intentions of moving to a different class because we’ve just enjoyed this so much, but the race track, we trust the race track, we trust the management, everything they put into it, and it makes us want to put back into it too. We love it. Every race track in the country should look at what they do and take notes.”

  1. That is the truth – The Arute’s have really stepped up their program and the competitors have put on some good shows. The new scoreboard is really cool… The cost of racing is the killer… Tires and gas are going to be going up this year so my guess is 15-20 cars per divison after week 5
