   The Chrome Horn - NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour




As a special bonus for this year’s CARQUEST Belts & Hose Pit Party during the 38th Annual CARQUEST Fall Final Weekend on Sunday, October 3rd, the first 700 fans through the Pit Party gates will receive a reusable bag compliments of CARQUEST Auto Parts. The CARQUEST Belts and Hose Pit Party allows race fans to meet and greet the drivers of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour along with the drivers from Stafford’s five NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing divisions.

Stafford Motor Speedway and CARQUEST Auto Parts will prolong the celebration of 25 years of partnership through the famed CARQUEST Belts and Hose Pit Party. The 38th Annual CARQUEST Fall Final Weekend will mark the 38th Whelen Modified Tour event to be held at Stafford with title sponsorship from CARQUEST Auto Parts. CARQUEST Auto Parts began sponsoring the CARQUEST Fall Final Weekend in 1995, and from 1996 through 2000, the Whelen Modified Tour event was a 300-lap extravaganza with 5 different winners in 5 races.

In 2001, the Spring Sizzler became the Tech-Net Spring Sizzler to better promote CARQUEST’s Tech-Net Professional Auto Service and Tech-Net also became the title sponsor of Stafford’s two pit parties that season. The Tech-Net designation gave way to CARQUEST’s Belts and Hose line and Stafford’s pit parties continue to flourish with the support of CARQUEST Auto Parts.

Another special giveaway will be at Whelen Modified Tour Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate Richie Pallai, Jr.’s car. Fans that stop by the #39 Bosch Spark Plugs car will receive a complimentary CARQUEST tee-shirt.

Pallai is currently 5 points behind Justin Bonsignore in the race for the 2010 Rookie of the Year honors and he heads into New Hampshire this weekend in 15th place in the 2010 Whelen Modified Tour points standings.

This year’s CARQUEST Belts & Hose Pit Party will also have a special presentation. During the 2010 NASCAR season at Stafford Motor Speedway, Ted Christopher has been racing to help beat breast cancer. For each victory that Christopher records this season at Stafford, he will donate $100 and he will donate $1 for every lap he completes at Stafford this season to Breast Cancer Research in Connecticut. For every dollar that Christopher contributes to the Race To The Finish To Beat Breast Cancer, Stafford Motor Speedway will match Christopher’s total. Christopher and Stafford’s donation total currently stands at $3,460. With three more races on the 2010 schedule, Christopher can add another $1,060 to that total if he can win all three races. Christopher will make a check presentation to representatives of The Race to the Finish to Beat Breast Cancer during the CARQUEST Belts & Hose Pit Party.

The CARQUEST Belts and Hose Pit Party has been a Stafford Motor Speedway tradition for over 20 years, offering fans a unique perspective to not only meet and greet with their favorite drivers, but to get up close and personal with their favorite racecars as well. Stafford Motor Speedway hosts two CARQUEST Belts and hose Pit Parties each season, once at the season opening CARQUEST Tech-Net Spring Sizzler Weekend and once during the season ending CARQUEST Fall Final Weekend.
