   The Chrome Horn - NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour




The CARQUEST Belts & Hose Pit Party is a Stafford Motor Speedway tradition that is entering into its third decade of existence, with the very first Pit Party taking place during CARQUEST Fall Final Weekend on September 30, 1990. The CARQUEST Belts and Hose Pit Party tradition will continue at Stafford on Sunday, October 2nd as part of the 39th Annual CARQUEST Fall Final Weekend pre-race festivities.

The CARQUEST Belts & Hose Pit Party is a meet and greet session that allows
race fans to get up close and personal with their favorite drivers and cars. The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour cars and drivers as well as cars and drivers from Stafford’s five NASCAR Whelen All-American Series will fill the frontstretch infield from 11am-12 noon on Sunday, Oct. 2nd prior to the day’s feature events, consisting of the SK Modified®, Late Model, and NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour races.

As part of the CARQUEST Belts and Hose festivities, Richie Pallai, Jr. will be giving away CARQUEST Belts and Hose tee-shirts for a $5 donation to benefit the Danbury Animal Welfare Society. Danbury Animal Welfare Society is the charity that Pallai raced for as part of the CARQUEST Champions For Charities race that was held in June as part of the CARQUEST Extreme Tuesday program.

The 1990 CARQUEST Fall Final Weekend was the first time that a pit party was held at a weekly NASCAR track as part of pre-race festivities. As the CARQUEST Belts & Hose Pit Party gained in popularity throughout the years, the concept has spread to other area tracks and today the pit party is a mainstay in allowing race fans unique access to their favorite drivers and cars.
