Ten years ago in 2005 The Whelen
Modified Tour headed for the Stafford Motor for the 34th annual Spring
Sizzler. Friday was a beautiful day with sunny skies and temps in the low
50’s. Whelen Modified Tour Series teams were allowed to enter the pit area
where they could park their tow vehicles and get inspected. The Stafford SK
Modifieds and Late Models were allowed to practice. Competitors were
instructed to have their scoring transponders in their cars as their speeds
would be recorded and could be used to determine lineups for feature events
if qualifying heats were rained out on Saturday. Heavy, monsoon type rain
washed out all activity on Saturday. The 43 Whelen Modified Tour cars on
hand were forced to wait until Sunday for their qualifying and 200 lap
Sizzler. The Stafford management along with NASCAR made the decision to run
the entire Sizzler program on Sunday. The Pit Party was eliminated as
practice was started at 10:00am. Despite extremely long day competitors,
officials and track management worked together and got the entire program
in. The SK feature provided the usual sparks with Ted Christopher and James
Civali slugging it out in the closing laps. Christopher got the win and
Civali ended up fourth. Mike Holdridge finished second with Lloyd Agor,
third. Civali was subsequently disqualified when he refused the tech
inspection. Woody Pitkat moved up to fourth with Kenny Horton rounding out
the top five. Tony Hirschman took the win in the 200 lap Whelen Modified
Tour Sizzler 200. Zack Sylvester backed up his runner-up finish at Thompson

Ruggiero and Ted Christopher rounded out the top five. Jim Mavlogenes won
the Late Model feature over Ted Christopher and Ryan Posocco.
Donnie Lia was the Busch Pole sitter and started fourth behind Nevin
George, Todd Szegedy and Tony Hirschman. George led the charge to the green
and led until lap 28 when Szegedy moved into the lead. Hirschman, who had
been running third, spun but didn’t bring out the caution. The first caution
came out on lap 40 when Jerry Marquis had a flat tire and collected Mike
Stefanik as he attempted to cut across the track to pit road. Stefanik’s car
dumped a lot of liquid on the track which forced officials to red flag the
event on lap 42 in order to clean the track. The field went back to green on
lap 47. Another caution on lap 50 for a mass tangle. Among those involved
was Ed Flemke Jr. who was black flagged for having no nerf bars. The field
went back to green on lap 55. Ted Christopher took the lead one lap later.
The caution flew on lap 58 for Jerry Marquis who stopped on the back
stretch. Green again on lap 64 with Christopher still leading with Szegedy
on his tail. Two laps later another caution, this time for Mike Christopher
who spun. The field returned to green on lap 68 with Ted Christopher leading
Reggie Ruggiero and Rick Fuller. The next caution came on lap 76 when Ken
Barry spun. Tony Hirschman pitted for tires and fuel on lap 78. The field
returned to green on lap 82. Christopher led thru numerous restarts and
cautions until lap 121 when he along with Szegedy and Ruggiero pitted. On a
lap 127 restart Jamie Tomaino led with Hirschman and Sylvester following. By
lap 130 Sylvester was in second spot and Hirschman was leading. By lap 195
there were only ten cars on the lead lap. Don Lia, who had been running
ninth, hit the wall and set up a green-white-checker sprint to the finish.
Following Hirschman, Sylvester, Szegedy, Ruggiero and Ted Christopher at the
finish were Chuck Hossfeld, Tomaino Charlie Pasteryak and Tom Bolles.

Five years ago in 2010, The NASCAR
Whelen Modified Tour Series opened for the 2010 season at the Thompson
Speedway with the Icebreaker 150 that carried a race purse of $87,231.
Thirty seven Modifieds including southern invader Burt Myers were on hand.
Bobby Santos III showed his determination early as he was clearly the
fastest in practice despite blustery winds and a cool temperature. Santos
was a little more than a half mile per hour faster than Rowan Pennick.
Myers, who had never laid eyes on the Thompson Speedway before, ran close to
60 laps in practice and was clocked 29th fastest at the time.
The NASCAR Modifieds qualified as the sun was beginning to go down. Bobby
Santos III, in his first time out in the Mystic Missile, put the Bob
Garbarino owned mount solidly on the pole for the Icebreaker. The third
generation racer turned a fast lap of 18.418 seconds (122.163 mph) in
qualifying for Sunday’s 150-lap season-opener. That lap surpassed the
previous Whelen Modified Tour qualifying record at Thompson set by Eric
Beers at 18.429 seconds (122.080 mph) prior to the 2008 World Series. Chris
Pasteryak was the second-fastest qualifier on Saturday at 18.470 seconds
(121.819 mph) followed by Ron Silk (18.514/121.530), Mike Stefanik
(18.596/120.994) and Burt Myers (18.603/120.948). Ryan Preece, Doug Coby,
Ted Christopher, Rowan Pennink and Eric Berndt rounded out the top 10
Following qualifying, a redraw of the top-10 cars saw Santos also draw
the No. 1 spot. He was joined on the front row by Coby, and the second row
consisted of Stefanik and Berndt. Myers drew fifth.
It was a dream come true for Bobby Santos III as he all but cleaned house
at the Thompson Speedway Icebreaker. Starting from the pole, Santos led 91
laps of the 150 lap Whelen Modified Tour opener. The Ron Hutter engine in
the Garbarino Mystic Missile never missed a beat as it provided ample power
when Santos nailed the accelerator. Santos took the lead for the final time
during a restart on lap 119. After running side by side with Ryan Preece,
who was in the Boehler Family No.3, for almost a lap Santos pulled ahead as
they completed lap 120. The race, which produced seven caution periods for
26 laps, went green from lap 119 on. In the end, Santos finished a little
more than a quarter secon ahead of Preece. Mike Stefanik, who led from lap
70 to 101, finished third. Stefanik was in contention the entire race. Ted
Christopher and Todd Szegedy rounded out the top five. Christopher led from
lap 61 to 69 after inheriting the lead when almost the entire field pitted
for fuel and tires following a lap 57 caution. Christopher, who gave way to
Stefanik after a lap 69 restart, elected to pit for fresh tires after James
Civali hit the turn two wall on lap 96. Christopher took on both rear tires
and a right front. His charge back to the front of the field fell short.
Rowan Pennink, Chris Pasteryak, Ron Silk, Eric Goodale and Eric Beers
rounded out the top 10.
Southern invader Burt Myers ran in the top ten during the first half
before having transmission problems which hindered his efforts. Needless to
say he finished 14th, on the lead lap, at the finish. While not to happy
with his finish, Myers remained upbeat as he greeted hundreds of fans in the
pit area after the event. Myers, who made himself available, hit a Public
Relations Home Run. Myers stated that he likes Thompson Speedway very much
and is looking foreward to returning when his schedule permits.
In other action at Thompson, Keith Rocco, running for a new team at
Thompson for the 2010 season and the defending track champion, was back to
his old and winning ways as he scored a victory in the first race of a
weekend twin bill for the Sunoco Modifieds on Saturday night. Rocco and Ted
Christopher swapped the lead position in the late stages but the young gun
was able to dust the veteran in the end. The Super Late Models were the
second of the twin bill on Saturday. Defending divisional champion, Derek
Ramstrom bested the strong field of Super Late Models in convincing fashion.
Ted Christopher had to use his experience on restarts to score a victory
in the Sunoco Modified feature event on Sunday. Defending champion, Derek
Ramstrom swept the twin bill for the Super Late Models while Rick Gentes
scored Late Model honors. Shawn Monahan bested a strong field of Limited
Sportsman competitors to score the victory. Another champion, TIS Modified
ace Brian Sullivan made a statement with an opening day victory. Leo
Defevers opened Day Two of the Icebreaker with a victory in the Mini Stock
The Waterford Speedbowl made a lasting impression with Southern invader
Burt Myers. With the exception of eight SK Modifieds running on the lead lap
when the race was stopped at the end of 12 laps, the remainder of the 23
starters were wrecked or disabled to the point where they were out for the
night. Myers was one of them. There were eight cautions in the first six
laps which made the rough and tumble action at the Bowman-Grey Stadium seem
tame. Race Director Tom Fox ended the agony when he called for a
red-checkered finish. Defending division champion Ron Yuhas Jr. was declared
the winner, followed by Justin Gaydosh and Tyler Chadwick.
In other action at the shoreline oval three-time defending Late Model
champion Bruce Thomas Jr. held off a late-charging Tim Jordan over the last
three laps to win his first feature of the season. Other winners were Josh
Galvin (Street Stocks) and Danny Field (Mini Stocks).
The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) and Whelen
Engineering, Inc., announced an extension that will see Whelen remain as the
entitlement sponsor for three of NASCAR’s developmental series through the
2019 racing season.
The extension means Whelen, which became an entitlement sponsor in 2004,
is the longest running current entitlement contract for any of NASCAR's
The weekend saw the Mad House come to the Thompson Speedway and the
Waterford Speedbowl. Mad House is a reality TV show that focus' on the
racing and drivers at the Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC. Burt
Myers, one of the stars of the show, raced at both tracks. Prior to heading
North to compete Myers was an honored guest on the weekly radio program,
Gary Danko's Speedway Line Report. Myers, a third generation racer, stated
that he feels that the NASCAR Modifieds are the heart of NASCAR racing. His
race shop includes two complete Troyer Modifieds, one that used exclusively
at Bowman-Gray. As far as the reality show goes, Myers stated that it was
business as usual at his shop and in general, the show was 90% accurate.
When questioned about the aggressiveness of Junior Miller, Myers stated, "we
would let it go if he would". The bad blood between Miller and the Myers
family goes back to a motor deal between Gary Myers, Burt's dad and Miller,
that went sour years ago. On the subject of Ted Christopher, Burt stated "I
like Ted, he's a good guy". Myers added that Christopher didn't volunteer
any tips on the Thompson Speedway. "He did tell me to get off Rt.395 at Exit
100." He found out later that exit 99 was the Speedway exit.
Mad House has portrayed Modified Racing on a short track the way it is.
Despite the rough stuff the program has been good for the Modifieds. It is a
true family sport and the show.
The New London Day reported that Waterford resident and Late Model driver
Dillon Moltz was about to get the biggest shot of his 18-year-old racing
life. Moltz, who drives in the Late Model division at Stafford Motor
Speedway, was one of 12 drivers selected to participate in the Richard Petty
Driver Search April 26-29 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina.
Moltz, and 11 others were picked from a pool of thousands of applicants from
across the country.
Moltz, who was third in the Late Models at Stafford in 2009 with a
division-high five wins, will have a busy week. After the season opens at
Stafford April 23-25, he'll fly to Charlotte Sunday night and begin a week
of racing on Monday. After that, he'll come back home and be ready for
another full weekend at Stafford.
The winner of the competition will get a fully-funded ride in a Petty car
in an ARCA race at Pocono Speedway on June 5. The competition will put the
12 drivers in four different cars and test each one in car control and
knowledge, track management, mechanical knowledge, speed and other

A tip of the hat to NASCAR with the announcement by NASCAR and VERSUS of
the broadcast schedule for the NASCAR Whelen Modified and NASCAR Whelen
Southern Modified Tours in 2010.
VERSUS’ first NASCAR race will feature the Whelen Modified Tour’s annual
appearance at Riverhead (N.Y.) Raceway on July 31 and the first Whelen
Southern Modified Tour broadcast will be its stop at historic Bowman Gray
Stadium on Aug 7 in Winston-Salem, N.C. The Riverhead event will air on

Whelen Southern Modified Tour broadcast schedule also includes the August
date at Caraway Speedway (Asheboro, N.C.) and September races at Langley
(Va.) Speedway and Tri-County Motor Speedway ( Hudson , N.C. ).
VERSUS’ schedule, combined with SPEED’s coverage of seven races between
the two Tours, means that that nine of the 14 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour
races were shown on national television in 2010 as well as seven of the 10
NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour events. It was previously announced
that SPEED would air seven races between the two Tours.
SPEED will broadcast Whelen Modified Tour events from Martinsville

Ryan Newman ended a 77 race losing streak as he won the NASCAR Sprint Cup
race at the Phoenix Int Raceway. Kyle Bush was the Nationwide Series winner
at the Arizona track.
Last year, 2014, the big news in New
England was the fact that the Waterford Speedbowl had officially gone on the
market for sale. Asking price is $3,300,000. The listing stated that the
property was currently being operated as a NASCAR sanctioned racetrack.
Listed on Zillow the real estate ad stated that “Redevelopment opportunities
abound including affordable housing, retail, industrial, distribution center
and light manufacturing". Owner Terry Eames said he listed the property with
agents Joe Luca, of RE/MAX, and Kenneth Dill, of Cresa Corporate Real
Estate, within the past two weeks, as part of foreclosure proceedings on the
property. A Connecticut Judge, Emmet Cosgrove handed down a judgment of
foreclosure in January, with an auction date of Oct. 18. The order stated
that Eames owed his creditors $1.2 million in debt and attorney fees. Rocco
Arbitell, one of the mortgage holders on the property, motioned for
foreclosure in 2013. Arbitell's business associate Peter Borrelli was the
other mortgage holder.
On April 3, the plaintiffs filed a motion for advice, requiring that
Eames advertise the property. McCoy said the motion was routine and that its
purpose was to ensure the property receives exposure both to wider audiences
through advertising in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, and to
the racing community, through publications such as trade magazines. Eames
said the language does not reflect any desire on his part to sell the
Despite all the doom and gloom being generated by the possible demise of
the shoreline oval it hadn't affected the enthusiasm of the competitors as
Keith Rocco won his third straight Late Model feature to begin the year and
Josh Galvin took his second straight Street Stock race in a row during
racing Saturday night at the Waterford Speedbowl. Tyler Chadwick won the SK
Modified division feature, Ken Cassidy Jr. engineered a come-from-behind win
in the Mini Stocks and Corey Barry scored a victory in the SK Light Modified
Chadwick worked hard during his run to victory in the 35-lap SK Modified
race. After he took the lead on lap 12 from Jeff Gallup, he held back a
charge from Rocco over the final 17 laps in what was a high-speed duel.
Rocco tried several different maneuvers to try to rattle Chadwick, but
Chadwick, the 2012 division champion, proved unflappable. Rocco was second,
followed by former division champions Rob Janovic Jr. and Ted Christopher
third and fourth, respectively.
In the 30-lap Late Model feature, Rocco passed Bruce Thomas Jr. on a
lap-6 restart to take command and never relinquished his lead. Thomas
finished four car-lengths back and Jason Palmer was third.
Apparent Street Stock winner Josh Galvin was later disqualified as tech
inspectors discovered illegal shock absorbers on his car. Al Stone III was
awarded the win. In the Mini Stock division Cassidy and three others in the
top five were disqualified for illegally modified spindles. Chris Ivory, who
originally finished third was declared the winner.
In other Speedbowl action, Fifteen year old Mike Christopher Jr. survived
a ton of late restarts to win the 25-lap Legends feature. It was the first
win for the second generation driver.
The Valenti Modified Racing Series traveled "up country" to the Monadnock
Speedway on Saturday night with 26 cars strong. Rowan Pennink won what was
considered one of the best VMRS races ever run as he took an impressive win
in the VMRS 100 lap Spring Dash 100. Pennink picked the pole starting
position after winning his heat. It was not a cakewalk as Justin Bonsignore
provided the excitement as he and Pennink swapped the lead numerous times
through out the 100 lapper. Steve Masse finished third and was followed by
Chris Pasteryak and Todd Szegedy. sixth through tenth were Dwight Jarvis,
Matthew Mead, Dylan Kopec, Max Zachem and Mike Willis, Jr.
A persistent overnight rain and forecast showers in the area has forced
the postponement of Saturday’s NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour Bunny
Hop 150 at Caraway Speedway in North Carolina. The Whelen Southern Modified
Tour headed into its annual "Spring Break" and would be back on the track
next on July 4 at Caraway Speedway. Andy Seuss took a five-point lead into
the break over four-time tour champion George Brunnhoelzl III.
