Todd Patnode Ready to Bring the Heat to Stafford’s SK Modifieds®


(Stafford Springs, CT)—Following a 2-race stint in Stafford’s SK Modified® division during the 2019 season, Swanzey, NH native Todd Patnode will make a full-time move for 2020.  Patnode will pilot the #42 SPAFCO Chassis car owned by Ken Barry and the 7-time Monadnock Speedway champion is looking forward to his first full-time season at Stafford.

“I first watched the SK Modifieds® at Stafford 4 or 5 years ago and I remember thinking that I wanted to one day be part of the show,” said Patnode.  “I’m looking forward to it.  If the SK’s at Stafford aren’t the best weekly show anywhere in America, then it’s right up there.  I’m looking forward to working with Kenny [Barry] this year and the field looks like a very competitive field, which always draws my interest.  There’s probably around 12 cars that can win a race on any given night at Stafford and the more competitive the field, the more it appeals to me.”
