Brian Sullivan Takes Stafford SK Light Championship in Unusual Circumstances

Brian Sullivan Takes Stafford SK Light Championship in Unusual Circumstances

(Stafford Springs, CT)—With 2020 being a year full of unpredictable and unusual circumstances, the race for the SK Light track championship at Stafford Speedway fits perfectly into the unpredictable and unusual narrative.  Brian Sullivan and the #11 Vasseur Landscaping team opened the season with a strong start, winning a race and posting top-6 finishes in each of the first 5 races of the season.  Following that 5-race stretch, Sullivan missed not one but the next two races on the schedule, which dropped him from the point lead to 5th in the standings, 90 points behind the leader with only 7 races left.  That fact didn’t deter Sullivan or the #11 team as they continued to notch strong consistent finishes in the top-5 while the drivers in front of him in the standings all encountered issues that allowed Sullivan to turn his 90 point deficit into a 40 point lead heading into the NAPA Auto Parts Championship Night event.  A conservative 10th place effort in that final race saw Sullivan and his team crowned as the 2020 SK Light champions.
