(Stafford Springs, CT)—Stafford Speedway announced today that Lincoln Technical Institute of East Windsor will return as the title sponsor of the track’s 10th Annual Lincoln Tech VMRS 80, scheduled for August 30. The Lincoln Tech VMRS 80 will mark the tenth consecutive season that Lincoln Tech has presented an event at the Stafford half-mile. Lincoln Tech first joined the Stafford family of partners in 2010 as the title sponsor of the Late Model 100 and they have supported an event at the speedway each season since that time.
“It’s hard to believe this will be our 10th season together,” said Rob Wargo, Eastern Connecticut High School Admissions Reps for Lincoln Tech. “It seems like it was only yesterday it was just our second or third year together. Time flies when you’re having fun and the key thing for us is that we definitely have fun at Stafford. I enjoy the track and I love interacting with the race fans. Our partnership is a great way for us to get the Lincoln Tech name out there and let everyone know what we’re all about and it’s been nothing but a blessing for us.”
Lincoln Tech has sponsored a variety of events at Stafford over the past nine seasons. In addition to the Valenti Modified Racing Series, Lincoln Tech has presented the Back 2 SK®ool Blitz and the Modified Touring Series. Lincoln Tech instituted a new program last season where automotive students were paired with David Arute’s #75 SK Modified® team and Steven Midford’s #23 Limited Late Model team as crew members. The program returns this season with two more students joining Arute’s team and according to Rob Wargo, there are more students lined up and waiting for an opportunity to join a team in the Stafford paddock area.
“We had several students last season join David Arute’s SK Modified® team as crew members and we’re going to continue that program again this season,” said Wargo. “We have around 15-20 students who are all looking to join a team as crew members, so to any drivers out there who are looking for extra crew help, please give me a call.”
