Meet 3-Time Stafford Speedway Champion Kevin Gambacorta
(Stafford Springs, CT)—With 17 wins spread across three different divisions and three career track championships at Stafford Motor Speedway to his credit, Kevin Gambacorta has enjoyed a career that most drivers would be envious of. Gambacorta has progressed his way up the full fender ladder at Stafford, racing 5 seasons in the Street Stock division and 7 seasons in the Limited Late Model division before his current stint of 8 years and counting in the Late Model division behind the wheel of his #23 Lavigne Law Dodge.
Here we take a look at how Gambacorta got involved in racing and how he has shaped his career path. Gambacorta got his first taste of racing through his father Vince, who was part of a 6-man enduro team in the mid to late ‘80’s.

(Stafford Springs, CT)—Chances are most fans of Stafford Motor Speedway are very familiar with SK Light driver Joey Ferrigno. The East Hartford native often referred to as “The Mayor” made his first start in 2003 and he has been racing at Stafford full-time since 2004 . But for those who may be unfamiliar, Ferrigno has amassed quite an impressive racing resume over his career, winning a Street Stock championship in 2005 and notching 25 career wins to date in three different divisions. For all that he has accomplished in his career, Ferrigno forged an unusual path for himself.
Unlike many young drivers of today, Ferrigno didn’t come from a racing family or have a background that saw him get started racing in go karts or quarter midgets at an early age. Ferrigno was introduced to racing through his babysitter and a house that happened to be on his paper route in East Hartford.
