Spring is here, at least according to the calender, and that means that racing season at Stafford Motor Speedway is just around the corner. If you have followed my blog at all in the past, you’ll remember that I used to do a Youtube show every week called The Inside Line with Kurt Vail. It was a lot of fun and we got to meet a lot of the local drivers in the process. The 43rd annual Spring Sizzler is coming up April 25, 26,and 27. I’ve attached an old video interviewing Woody Pitkat below for your viewing pleasure.
As most of you from this area know, racing has always been a big deal in Stafford and after years of covering it all across the state and nationally for the Hartford Courant, Stafford’s own Shawn Courchesne started his own racing website and blog called RaceDayCT.com. If you are a race fan you have to check it out. I, recently, started advertising with him, and want to thank him for all his help. Hit this link to check out his kind words in welcoming me to the RaceDayCT family—-> Kurt’s AD.
Cory Casagrande #1
Kate, my son Noah, and myself were lucky enough to be invited to watch some local drivers gear up for an exciting new season of auto racing at Stafford Motor Speedway. This is just a small preview of what you will see on The Inside Line with Kurt Vail on MyStaffordSprings this coming race season. We caught up with Cory Casagrande (pictured above) who had three featured wins in 2011, his rookie season in the Limited Late Model division! Kyle Casagrande is looking for a track championship in the DARE stock division after posting 5 feature wins in 2011. We, also, chatted with “Magnum” Mike Bennett who will be competing in the SK Modified division full-time in 2012. We will showcase these Stafford drivers as well as many more in the weeks to come, don’t miss it! Don’t forget the Spring Sizzler at Stafford Motor Speedway on April 28 and 29, 2012. Watch it below.
