Chasing the checkered flag; Tony Membrino has high expectations at Stafford Motor Speedway

Gates open at 3 p.m. if fans want to rub elbows with the race teams and drivers in the back lot. At 5 p.m. the doors open for heat races and qualifiers. Feature races begin at 7 p.m., and Membrino promises to deliver in the SK Light division.

“If you have nothing to do on a Friday night, and you like racing, come up to Stafford,” he said. “We bring the house down all night, and there’s nothing like going to your local short track and watching local racers go at it. It’s like watching the guy next door. That brings a real hometown feel to the atmosphere, and I think that’s what makes the short track so great.”

Look for Membrino. He’ll be the one in the winner’s circle.
