STAFFORD SPEEDWAY TO HAVE B-MAIN FOR SK MODIFIEDS IN 2001

(Stafford Springs, CT)---Stafford Motor Speedway held its' annual competitor meetings last week. Over 100 drivers and owners were in attendance for the SK Modified division's meeting. A major announcement was made at the meeting.

Beginning next year, Stafford Motor Speedway will host double SK Modified features. The features will be divided into A and B main formats. All drivers not qualifying for the A-main feature through heat and consolation races will have an opportunity to advance through the Coors Light 21 Means 21 B-main feature. The 21 Means 21 race will be run every Friday night and will be sponsored by Coors Light.

The race will be a 21-lap feature that will start 21 cars and will transfer the top-2 finishers to the 50-lap A main feature. The race will not offer SK Modified championship points, but will offer competitors a small purse to be distributed among the 21 means 21 competitors. The 21 Means 21 feature will allow Stafford Motor Speedway SK Modified competitors not only an opportunity to transfer to the 50-lap A-main that is the cornerstone of Stafford Motor Speedway competition, but an opportunity to gain all-important seat and track time.

"The 21 Means 21 race is something that we feel very strongly about," said Stafford CEO Mark Arute. "This race will allow competitors to gain experience racing an SK Modified at Stafford Motor Speedway. With our racing program the way it was last year, a lot of competitors were going home with as little as 10 or 12 laps on the track during a night. With this race, competitors will have more laps to learn the track and give them a better baseline for set-ups than they had last year. This race will also offer competitors who don't race in the A main a small cash amount, where last year competitors were going home with nothing."

"We're thrilled with the addition of the 21 MEANS 21 B-Main feature race," said Rich Wordon, of Coors Brewing Company of Connecticut. "Providing drivers an opportunity to race into the A main feature and at the same time creating awareness of our 21 Means 21 program is very important to us and Stafford Motor Speedway."
