Spring Sizzler 2012, Great Weekend for Locals


Kyle Casagrande in Victory Lane

The 41st Annual Spring Sizzler is in the books and it was a great weekend for local drivers with at least 1 driver from Stafford finishing in the top ten in all six feature events. Many were on hand this cool and windy weekend at Stafford Motor Speedway, including my children and I, to witness the “Greatest Race in the History of Spring”. On Saturday, Stafford natives Kyle Casagrande (pictured above) and Albert Saunders finished first and second in the Dare Stock feature. Cory Casagrande placed second and David Arute fourth in the Limited Late Model race and Bob Charland finished sixth in the SK Light feature.

On Sunday, Woody Pitkat made his way through traffic to finish ninth after getting tied up in a crash midway through the SK Modified race. Woody also had to pass many cars en route to a second place finish in the Late Model feature after starting deep in the field. J.J. Hill looked strong as well finishing ninth. In the final race of the day, the 200 lap Modified Tour feature, Woody finished with an impressive eighth place finish. He started 20th and made it up to as high as fifth. Overall, it was a great weekend for our local Stafford drivers. Make sure to visit Stafford Speedway this Friday night, it’s only $17.50 for adults and $5 for children 6 to 14. See you there.
