   The Chrome Horn - NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour




Stafford Motor Speedway has again lined up an impressive field of current and former open wheel champions for its CARQUEST Champions For Charities Event as part of CARQUEST Super Saturday on June 30th. During the coming weeks, SMS will offer a profile on each of its championship winning drivers and the charity they will be racing for and this week’s CARQUEST Champions For Charities spotlights falls on defending Stafford SK Modified® champion Ryan Preece, who will be racing to support the Connecticut chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“First of all, it’s nice to finally be able to be called a champion,” said Preece. “I watched the race last year and it looked like all of the guys had a lot of fun. The main thing is to raise money for Make-A-Wish, so I’m looking forward to raising money and helping to make a difference in being able to grant a wish for a child with a life-threatening medical illness.”

As Preece strives to raise money for the CT Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, he will not be alone in his fundraising efforts. Hoosier Tire’s Missy Pearl, who is an independent consultant with PartyLite Gifts, will aid Preece’s efforts by donating 25% of her profits from selling PartyLite gifts to Preece’s efforts for Make-A-Wish. Fans can order PartyLite gifts online at http://www.partylite.biz/sites/melissapearl/productcatalog and entering Ryan Preece’s name after clicking on Look Up Your Host, or by calling Missy Pearl at 860-608-6043.

“I’m thrilled to be helping Ryan raise money for Make-A-Wish,” said Pearl.

“People can order either online through my PartyLite website or by calling me directly. 25% of my profits will go towards Ryan’s total for Make-A-Wish and I hope to sell a lot of candles to help Ryan be one of the top fundraisers and get him a preferred starting spot in the CARQUEST Champions For Charities feature race.”.

After winning the Stafford SK Modified® championship last season, Preece will have a full slate of racing ahead of him this season as he will race weekly at Thompson and Stafford as well as taking over the wheel of the #16 car on the Whelen Modified Tour that was formerly piloted by Mike Stefanik.

“The way the schedule is there are no conflicts, so we’ll be at Stafford for all the races to try to win another championship,” said Preece. “It was nice to win the championship last year and we’ll try to win it again, but with the competition level at Stafford, that is asking a lot. You really have to be on you’re A-game at Stafford, but we have the car, the team, and thanks to sponsors like American Lamp Recycling, Sullivan and Sons, J.G. Poulin Drywall, CD Chassis, Racing Electronics, Hitchcock Pool Water, and Pettit Racing Engines, we have more than enough to go out and get the job done.”
