(Stafford Springs, CT)—After recording 5 consecutive top-4 finishes in the Late Model standings at Stafford Motor Speedway, the 2018 season was disappointing for Ellington, CT native Kevin Gambacorta. The driver of the #23 Lavigne Law Dodge began last season with high hopes, but a wreck in the season opening NAPA Spring Sizzler event forced Gambacorta to miss several races as he repaired his car. Another wreck later in the season relegated Gambacorta to the sidelines for several more races. Despite missing 6 races in total, Gambacorta still managed to finish 9th in the standings on the strength of a win and 5 second place finishes. Gambacorta is heading into the 2019 season at Stafford ready to put the misery of 2018 behind him.(more…)
