Casella Waste Returns to Stafford Speedway Family of Sponsors in 2024

Last season at Stafford Speedway, Casella Waste Systems added to their contingency program sponsorship by becoming the title sponsor of the Casella Waste Open 80.  Casella Waste Systems will return to Stafford Speedway in both capacities for the 2024 season.  Casella will once again sponsor the Casella Waste Open 80 set for Friday, June 7th as well as offering a weekly $125 bonus to each SK Modified® feature event second place finisher.  Casella’s contingency contribution brings the SK Modified® feature second place payout up to $1,400.

“We’re happy to be partnered back up with Stafford,” said explained Mark DiMauro, Sr., Division Manager for Casella Waste in Connecticut.  “The partnership with Stafford has been great for us at Casella both business-wise and professional-wise.  We know what it takes to get a race car to the track and it’s a big job to get the car to the track every Friday night, so happy to do whatever we can to be able to help out the weekly competitors.  We’re really looking forward to the Casella 80, it should be another exciting night of racing.”

In addition to their race and contingency sponsorships, Casella Waste will be featured as the primary sponsor of the #3 SK Modified® car of Troy Talman as well as the Sr. Outlaw kart of Mike DiMauro, Jr. on Monday Nights as part of the Wild Thing Karts program.  Casella will also serve as a sponsor the #76 SK Light car of Ron Midford, Jr. and for the first time, Casella will be a sponsor in the Late Model division on Chris Meyer’s #87 car.

“Mark and the team at Casella Waste Systems have been great partners the last few seasons at Stafford,” noted Stafford Speedway CEO Mark Arute.  “They’ve stepped up to help competitors through contingency bonuses, event sponsorship, tire disposal, and more.  We’re looking forward to another season with the Casella team.”
