Lincoln Tech Of East Windsor Returning To Stafford Speedway As Title Sponsor Of July VMRS Race

(Stafford Springs, CT)—Stafford Motor Speedway has announced that Lincoln Tech of East Windsor will return as the title sponsor of the track’s Lincoln Tech 80 Valenti Modified Racing Series race on July 18.  The 2014 season will be the fourth consecutive year that Lincoln Tech has sponsored the VMRS event at Stafford, and the fifth consecutive season that Lincoln Tech has been part of the Stafford Speedway family of sponsors.
Lincoln Tech first teamed up with SMS in 2010 when they signed on to be the title sponsor of the track’s 100-lap Late Model race.  After the VMRS made its Stafford debut in 2010, the track added a second VMRS race for the 2011 season and Lincoln Tech transferred their title sponsorship to that second race.  
“We’re very pleased to be back again this season with Stafford Motor Speedway,” said Rob Wargo, Eastern Connecticut High School Admissions Reps for Lincoln Tech.  “Throughout the years, we’ve been very impressed with the hospitality we receive from the track and we’re looking forward to another great season together.  Sponsoring this race at Stafford has been a great marketing campaign for us.  Last season we were able to enroll several students as a direct result of our race sponsorship and we’ve enrolled several students each season as a result of us being involved with Stafford.”
The winner of the Lincoln Tech 80 will once again be in for a treat as they will receive one of the most unique trophies in short track racing.  Lincoln Tech will present the race winner with a customized airbrushed car hood for their winning efforts.  Lincoln Tech began their tradition of presenting an airbrushed hood for the 2010 Late Model 100 which was won by Woody Pitkat and they have continued the tradition through their sponsorship of the VMRS.
“Our hoods have been big hits and we’re going have another airbrushed hood for this year’s winner,” said Wargo.  “We’ll have one of our instructors on site and he will airbrush the hood during the night.  We like being able to do something different for the trophy and we’re going to give the fans a chance to be able to watch the hood go from a blank hood to the trophy that we will present.”
The East Windsor Lincoln Tech location is hosting an open house on Saturday, March 15 from 8:30am-12noon.  Lincoln Tech will have a scholarship test available during the open house and anyone interested in attending the open house can RSVP with Rob Wargo by calling 860-627-4300.
