A few weeks ago Michael Wray was ready to take a few weeks off from Stafford Speedway. 

Instead of missing the action it was Wray instead rocketing to victory lane. 

Wray scored his first victory of the season in the 30-lap Late Model feature Friday at Stafford Speedway. 

“It means so much,” Wray said. “We wrecked a couple weeks ago and I wasn’t going to fix it. My mom and my dad pushed me to fix it and here we are.” 

It was 11th career Late Model win at Stafford for Wray, of Northford, and his first since April 24, 2022. 

Wray went by John Blake for the lead on lap off turn two on lap 10 and never trailed again. 

“This thing was hooked up,” Wray said. “It hasn’t been that good in a long time.” 

Tom Fearn of East Longmeadow, Mass. was second and Adam Gray of Belchertown, Mass. third. 

Kevin Cormier of Agawam, Mass. got his fourth victory in 10 starts in the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature. 

“The car was really really good. … We got this thing set up real good now. We just kind of drove away from them today.” 

Jeremy Lavoie of Windsor Locks was second and Matt Clement of Wethersfield third. 

George Bessette Jr. of Danbury held off the challenges of Tyler Chapman on a green-white-checkered finish to win the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature. 

Chapman, of Ellington, was second and Brian Sullivan of Tolland third. 


  1. Did anyone get a good look at what happened to Megan Fuller? Wondering if the 46 gave her a shot going into turn 3, or if she lost it on her own. Scary situation, her sitting driver’s side to oncoming cars, another example where SK lights having spotters would be safer

  2. Suspicious Stagger says

    I don’t think she lost it on her own. I’ve seen her correct a car with her nose pointing toward the infield; Pretty sure it wasn’t 100% all her.

    What really irks me about this whole thing with Fuller, is that there was no replay of the situation. Asking around, most people within the stands all agree that the 46 did indeed give her a shot. I was not watching Fuller, but did do a quick scan and saw exactly what you also did.
    Poor women gets slammed drivers side, yet they don’t even show a replay of the accident? Hm.

  3. Suspicious Stagger,
    As fantastic as the Stafford Speedway streaming production is, this isn’t CBS covering an NFL game. Sometimes – actually oftentimes – things happen on the track that aren’t caught on camera because there aren’t enough cameras to have a view of everything happening at all times. Stafford showed the best replay they had, a few times, on the FloRacing broadcast. Please don’t be trying to plant the seeds of some type of conspiracy here.
    Also, this was posted on the Meg Fuller Racing Facebook account today: “The car was pretty loose for the whole feature and we were holding onto it until lap 18 rolled around and in turns 1 and 2 and we unfortunately couldn’t save it and spun in front of the field which caused the race to go under red. We are okay but very sore from the hard hits we took. I apologize to anyone that was involved and hope that all drivers are feeling okay today.”
