Wray, Provost, & Walker Also Win
(Stafford Springs, CT)—Stafford Speedway returned to NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing action on Friday, June 9th with the Dunleavy’s Modifiedz Night. Stafford’s SK Lights took center stage with a 40-lap feature that paid over $14,000 in total posted awards while the SK Modifieds® ran an extra 10-laps in feature distance for an extra $4,000 in their purse. Taking down the biggest win of the night was Brett Gonyaw, who took the checkered flag and a pay check of over $2,700 in the 40-lap SK Light feature. Ronnie Williams took the checkered flag in the extra distance SK Modified® feature, Michael Wray won the Late Model feature, Duane Provost took down his second consecutive Limited Late Model feature win, and Johnny Walker won the DARE Stock feature.
In the 40-lap SK Light feature event, Keith Caruso took the lead at the green on the outside of Noah Korner.

Goff got clear into fourth on lap-4 as Noah Korner and Douillard were still side by side for second. The caution came out with 5 laps complete for a multi car wreck coming out of turn 2 involving Tony Santangelo, Marcello Rufrano, Wesley Prucker, and several others. (more…)
Rowan Pennink Ready to Go For 2 In a Row at Stafford Speedway
(Stafford Springs, CT)—While Rowan Pennink is certainly no stranger to NAPA Victory Lane at Stafford Speedway with 12 feature wins and 2 championships over the last 2 years in the SK Modified® division, he was still looking for a breakthrough win in a touring modified car. That breakthrough finally came last May in the Valenti Modified Racing Series 80 with Pennink behind the wheel of Gary Cretty’s red #25 machine. Pennink is looking forward to returning to Stafford next Friday night and defending his win in the 4th Annual VRMS 80.
Wayne Coury, Jr. Hoping to Collect First Stafford Victory in CBYD 811 LM 50
(Stafford Springs)—For the past 11 seasons, Shelton native Wayne Coury, Jr. has been racing in the Late Model division at Stafford Speedway without reaching NAPA Victory Lane. He has been close several times before with podium finishes but he is still in search of his first trip to the top step of the podium. Coming off a 6th place effort in the season opening NAPA Spring Sizzler® feature, Coury is hoping that he can put his #10 Wayne’s Auto Body Chevrolet into victory lane for a big payday in this Friday night’s Call Before You Dig 811 50-lap feature.
“I felt like we had a good enough car to win at the Sizzler and I think we’re really close to our first win,” said Coury. “We’ve been close in the past and I think we’re right there knocking on the door. A win this Friday night would be huge for us. We’ve won at Waterford and Thompson and been competitive elsewhere but Stafford has been elusive for us. To win an extra distance race and a big purse would be a huge boost for the whole team, especially for my Dad. He’s been the main person behind the team since he stopped racing himself and it’s been pretty awesome to have him focusing on the car. I’d really like to be able to win this race for him. I don’t think our finishing record at Stafford is representative of how competitive we’ve been and we’re hoping we can change that this Friday night.”
