Momentary setback doesn’t deter Bryden’s enthusiasm
West Springfield teen making the move from karts to SK Lite Modifieds
WATERFORD — Unless the smoke is coming from a victory cigar, smoke on the race track usually means trouble.
That was the case for 17-year-old Alicia Bryden of West Springfield as she was preparing for her second career SK Lite Modified start at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl on June 16.
“We went out for the third practice and we were running good laps,” Bryden said. “Then I heard a bing and I saw a bunch of smoke. I quickly pulled in because I thought the car may be on fire, but there was no fire. Instead a piston rod put a hole in the oil pan and we blew the motor.” (more…)

Ronnie Williams Prepared For NAPA SK 5K at Stafford Speedway
(Stafford Springs, CT)—Prior to the start of the 2018 SK Modified® season at Stafford Speedway, Ellington native Ronnie Williams made the switch from his family owned team to the driver’s seat of the #50 Les’s Auto Center/Empower Financial car owned by Les and Tina Skowyra.
