(Stafford Springs, CT) – The 2nd Annual NAPA Auto Parts SK 5k at Stafford Motor Speedway takes center stage next Friday, July 10th featuring the biggest race of the season for the SK Modified® division. Over $30,000 in total posted awards is up for grabs and the drama for the race continues to build. The SK Modified® feature events have consistently recorded non-stop competition this season, with side by side and wheel to wheel action.
This year’s edition has the added twist of the Dunleavy Gambler’s Challenge. The Gambler’s Challenge will be determined by the NAPA SK 5k Fan Vote that is currently live on www.staffordspeedway.com. The winner of the NAPA SK 5k will determine how the bonus gets distributed by a random draw of the top 3 choices from the Fan Vote.
The current top choices from the Fan Vote are:
- Winner takes all
- Random Selection- $5,000 awarded to a randomly selected finishing position
- Half to the winner and half evenly distributed to the remaining top-5 finishers
- Evenly distributed through the 11th-20th place finishers.
The Gambler’s Challenge requires SK Modified® drivers to put up $100 with the total driver amount being matched by Doug Dunleavy from Dunleavy’s Truck & Trailer Repair. The total Gamblers bonus amount is contingent on the number of drivers that participate in the challenge. Drivers that do not enter the challenge will not be eligible for the bonus.
In addition to the Gambler’s Challenge, the NAPA SK 5k will once again offer a payout to the top-3 finishers from each heat race. Stafford Speedway will pay out $250 per heat winner, $150 for each heat race 2nd place finisher, and $100 to each heat race 3rd place finisher for a total of $500 per heat race. This bonus money could make the heat races just as exciting as the NAPA SK 5k feature.
Other feature action on Friday night July 10th will be the Late Models, SK Lights, Limited Late Models, DARE Stocks and US Legend Cars. Stafford Speedway will also host the Savage Brothers Band for a prerace concert and the 4now Band for a post-race concert.
