(Stafford Springs, CT)—Stafford Motor Speedway has released its 2015 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series event schedule. The 2015 schedule will consist of 145 feature events and 23 race dates, kicking off with the 44th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Spring Sizzler on April 24-26, and concluding with the 43rd Annual NAPA Auto Parts Fall Final Weekend on October 3-4. New for 2015 the U.S. Legend Cars will be a weekly division running every Friday night, bringing the total weekly division count to 6.

 

“We are really excited to announce our 2015 schedule, it looks a lot like the 2014 schedule with the addition of weekly racing for the legends,” explained Mark Arute, Stafford’s President/COO. “The focus of 2015 will be to strengthen our weekly program and focus on our drivers and fans. The last few years we have launched events that have had great reception like the NAPA SK 5k and BFF night. We have a renewed focus to develop events like these and make sure they have lasting effects on weekly racing at Stafford. Anytime you can post $26,000 in purse money or have an event that gets new faces to the track it’s a win for Stafford, the fans, and the drivers.”

 

“We want to make sure the fans and the drivers know that we are committed to them and are committed to weekly short track racing”, said Dave Arute, Stafford’s Assistant General Manager. “Stafford’s drivers are some of the best in the country and we want to continue to provide the platform for the unbelievable racing we saw in 2014. We are excited for 2015 and hope the fans and the drivers are as well.”

 

Stafford Motor Speedway will host three fireworks nights during the 2015 season. The 15th Annual Summer Blast-Off will be held on June 19, with fireworks accompanying the Friday Night Five Star Series action on July 3 and on August 21.

 

For the 25th consecutive season, the month of May is Youth Organization Month. All children 14 and under are admitted FREE when wearing a youth organization Team Shirt or Uniform and accompanied by a paying adult.
