Adrien Paradis, III Looking to Carry 1st Win Momentum Into Midstate Site Development Street Stock 30 at Stafford Speedway


(Stafford Springs, CT)—After securing his first career Street Stock victory at Stafford Speedway, Adrien Paradis, III will be looking to carry momentum from that first win into the biggest Street Stock race of the 2021 season, the Midstate Site Development 30 set for this Friday, July 2.  Paradis, driver of the #19 CSB Communications Chevrolet, scored his first career win in the midst of his third full season while driving a backup car.  

Paradis came to Stafford’s Street Stock division in 2019 and he finished 5th in the Street Stock standings with 6 top-5 and 19 top-10 finishes to claim R.A.D. Auto Machine Rookie of the Year honors.  Paradis’ voyage in the Street Stock division since his rookie season has been anything but smooth.  After an early season wreck in 2020 he still managed 3 top-5 and 8 top-10 finishes in 13 starts to finish 7th in the season ending standings.  Misfortune struck again in the third race of this season damaging his primary car.  After struggling with his backup car and taking a week off from racing, Paradis came back on June 18 and scored his first career win.

SK Modified® Trio Looking to Carry Momentum of First Podium Finish Into NAPA SK 5k at Stafford Speedway


(Stafford Springs, CT)—For any racer, there is no feeling quite like reaching victory lane for the very first time.  That first time winning feeling can almost be matched by recording a podium finish for the very first time and Stafford Speedway’s June 18 SK Modified® feature event featured three drivers who were all on the podium for the very first time.  Bryan Narducci drove the #83 Keith Rocco owned All Phases Renovations sponsored car to victory, followed by Matt Vassar in the #11 Hummel Hot Dogs Chevrolet, and David Arute in the #75 Big Haus USA Chevrolet.

Arute and Vassar broke into the SK Modified® division at the same time in 2018 with Arute winning Rookie of the Year honors.  Both drivers started out in full fendered cars before moving into the world of open wheel modifieds with Arute winning 11 Limited Late Model races from 2012-2015 and then 2 SK Light features in 2016 and 2017.  Vassar won 2 Late Model track championships at Gresham Motorsports Park in Georgia before moving back north and going racing at Stafford in the Late Model division for one season in 2017 before moving up to the SK Modified® ranks.
