Race fans can take a sneak preview into the 2011 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season at Stafford Motor Speedway during the 52nd Annual Frank Maratta Auto Show at the Connecticut Expo Center from Jan. 28-Jan. 30. Stafford Motor Speedway will have a booth at the show and the featured attraction of the booth will be the #88 Wheelers Automotive SK Modified® car that Keith Rocco drove to the SK Modified® track championship at Stafford.

Rocco returns to Stafford’s premier division this season with the same combination that propelled him to a Stafford SK Modified® record 10 wins last season and helped him become the 2010 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Champion.

“We’re out to win races and championships and this past season has given the whole team a lot of motivation,” said Rocco. “Everything is staying the same for 2011 with the exception of Cordone and Sons Construction, which is a new sponsor that we picked up.”

Rocco’s 2010 season was a master class in domination that saw him outgain second place Woody Pitkat by a whopping 138-point margin, which equates to 2 race wins plus a 7th place finish. Although Rocco says he can’t expect to have another year like last season, he does expect to be among the title contenders once again when the green flag drops on the 2010 SK Modified® season.

“Obviously we can’t expect to do the same things this year that we did last year,” said Rocco. “We’re going to put last year behind us and start out from scratch. We’ve been in contention for the past few years with the exception of 2009, where we had some bad luck with putting a new team together and sorting the car out. But we still won the most races in 2009 and if we can keep all four wheels on the car this year, we expect to be in contention again.”

Rocco will not be the only Stafford driver on hand at the Frank Maratta Auto Show. On Saturday, Jan. 29th, there will be an autograph session from 6pm-7pm featuring the following Stafford drivers: Jeff Baral, Victoria Bergenty, Mike Christopher, Mike Christopher, Jr., Lauren Cooper, Heather DesRochers, 2010 Late Model Rookie of the Year Tim Fogg, Glenn Griswold, Kyle Spencer, and Josh White. Rocco will also be part of the autograph session.

The 52nd Annual Frank Maratta Auto Show is a three-day event running from Friday, January 28th through Sunday, January 30th. The show hours are 5pm-11pm on Friday the 28th, 11am-11pm on Saturday the 29th, and 10am-6pm on Sunday the 30th. Show admission is $15 for Adults and $7.50 for Children 12 & under.
