    What a last lap pass for the win. I think that stuff they put down on the track worked? Again the mini stock race side by side for the lead lap after lap. Awesome. Nice to see 20 sk’s take the green. Stafford had what. 8 more? For the biggest sk race in the history of sk races? Nice field of late models. Some very surprising names. Stafford’s own Michael Bennentt in a ACT car, what? The return of the Derrick’s. Ranstrom. The pro stock hot shoe from back in the day. Anderson. The guy was dqd from a win and the huffy puffy hissing pissing on social media for all to see. Good on him for coming back and not being a complete sore loser. Cory Fanning nice to see in a late model at the bowl. And the stands
    Yes the stands were packed. Anyone that says otherwise is a moron and wasn’t there.

  2. Folks can judge for themselves, the SK race and others are on Youtube. Flannery being the gentleman he is conceded the inside lane to Owen without a hint of protecting the lead. A bit unusual seeing as how it was so close to the end.

    Every division had great racing once again! The stands were full, the pits were full, Lots of people enjoying the best racing in Ct.

  4. This was the Best race in each class and the track looked great with the spray on the track side by side racing and the sk s could race on the bottom or top .also nice to see a new double blower and new paint on the track one of the better crowds this year. hope the sks

    will keep coming back each week .

  5. MMTTS is next, looking forward to next Saturday night!
