Monaco Ford Driving Safety and SK Light Modifieds at Stafford Speedway in 2024

Monaco Ford of Glastonbury, CT will return to Stafford Speedway in 2024 as the official sponsor of the Monaco Ford Safety Team and supply two 2024 Ford trucks for the safety team to utilize on track.  Monaco Ford will also be seen as sponsors on the SK Light car #46 of Brian Sullivan and the #75 SK Modified® and Open Modified cars of David Arute during the 2024 season at Stafford Speedway.

“My great uncle Sonny had race cars back in the late ‘40’s and early ‘50’s and my father raced at Stafford in the mid to late ‘70’s to early ‘80’s so I remember going to the track as a kid although we didn’t get to see my father race because he retired before my sister and I were born,” said Mike Monaco, fourth generation co-owner of Monaco Ford.  “This is a great tie to bring him back to Stafford as well as my sister, brother, and myself.  There were years where we’d see the safety trucks and I thought that would be a great idea for us to get tied in with that.  With getting to know the Arute family and with our relationship with David Arute now, it makes a lot of sense for us to be there every Friday night and why not have our trucks there.”

Monaco Ford will also become the title sponsor of the Monaco Ford Double Down SK Light feature set for Friday, May 24th as the first of two 40-lap extra distance events the SK Light division will partake in during the 2024 season.  Last year’s SK Light Double Down feature event saw Sullivan drive his Monaco Ford car to NAPA Victory Lane with Alexander Pearl and Tyler Chapman rounding out the podium finishers.

“We really like the SK light division,” said Monaco.  “We got started sponsoring Brian Sullivan and now my oldest son Axel races karts on Monday nights and seeing some of the drivers graduating from karts really ties our connection together.  I love to see the look on my Dad’s face whenever we’re at the track.  He loves it and now that my son is racing, hopefully one day he’ll start racing at Stafford on Friday nights.  Axel thinks it’s the greatest thing in the world and having a connection from him to my father has been a fantastic thing to watch.”
