   The Chrome Horn - NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour




NASCAR’s Whelen Modified Tour comes to Stafford Motor Speedway this Friday, August 5th for 21st Annual Town Fair Tire 150, which will be the third of four visits the tour will make to Stafford in 2011. The race is presented to race fans by Town Fair Tire and its over 84 locations throughout the Northeast. The 21st Annual Town Fair Tire 150 will feature the stars and cars of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour as well as Stafford Speedway’s five NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing divisions. Last year’s Town Fair Tire 150 saw two former Whelen Modified Tour champions dueling for the victory with 2003 champ Todd Szegedy beating 7-time champ Mike Stefanik to the checkered flag.

“We’re happy to be back at Stafford Speedway,” said Jim Uliano, V.P. of Marketing for Town Fair Tire. “Stafford does a great job with promoting our event and we’re pleased to be partnered up with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. We’re looking forward to enjoying another exciting modified race at a great facility.”

Coming into the Town Fair Tire 150, Ronnie Silk holds the points lead by 5 points over Rowan Pennink. Silk won the last time the Whelen Modified Tour visited Stafford in dominating fashion by winning the pole and leading every lap. Pennink finished second behind Silk in that race and with only 5 points separating them in the standings, the fight for the championship will be in full swing at Stafford. Szegedy currently sits third in the points, 91 behind Silk while Ted Christopher, who has more wins at Stafford than any other driver, is fourth, 97 points behind.

Szegedy has enjoyed great success in the Town Fair Tire 150, with three of his four Stafford Whelen Modified Tour victories coming in the Town Fair Tire 150. Szegedy was the 2003, 2004, and 2010 winner of the Town Fair Tire 150 and he was in contention in the 2008 Town Fair Tire 150 victory until contact with Ryan Preece on the final lap saw Jimmy Blewett get by both drivers to take the checkered flag. The Town Fair Tire 150 has also seen a first time winner with James Civali in 2006, and since 2000, the race has been won 7 times by former Whelen Modified Tour championship winning drivers. Szegedy was the last driver to score repeat victories in the Town Fair Tire 150, winning the race in 2003 and 2004, and he will look to go back to back once again this Friday night.
