(Stafford Springs, CT)—New for the 2018 season Stafford Speedway’s DARE Stock division will be renamed to Street Stocks as part of full rebranding of the division. Stafford’s DARE Stock and now known as Street Stock division has served as a stepping stone for drivers since its inaugural season in 1993. Through the completion of the 2017 season 124 different drivers have notched victories in the division.
“We are rebranding the division to Street Stocks for 2018,” explained Mark Arute, GM. “Throughout the Northeast these type of cars are referred to as Street Stocks. Along with the new name and updated rules we are also planning a few other changes for the Street Stock division in 2018, stay tuned.”
Street Stock (DARE Stock) racing at Stafford dates back to 1993, an offshoot to the popular L&R Enduro Racing. 2017 marked the 25th season of the division. Throughout those 25 seasons the division has served as a place for drivers to learn but also a place for teams to compete.
“The DARE Stocks have always been a great division at Stafford,” continued Arute. “Many drivers have used this novice division as a stepping stone and continued to move up the ranks. The rebranding and renaming to Street Stocks will still offer the mix of young drivers and veterans in the division which will continue to make for great racing. We will continue to work with drivers to make the division a success.”
