Spring Sizzler - Stafford Springs
April 30, 2006

The Stafford Motor Speedway, in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, holds a special car race day each spring, the "Spring Sizzler". It's well-attended, and all of the races are "feature" events... none of those silly "qualifying" heats.

Attraction number one is the NASCAR Featherlite Modified Tour event, with some of the fastest cars to ever run on a 1 mile oval.
