King of the Crate Prelim Format Announced for SK Light Modifieds at Stafford

The SK Light Modified division will compete for the title of King of the Crate on Wednesday, July 17th at Stafford Speedway. The format for the new event will feature two 15-lap preliminary races with the top-12 in each race transferring to the 40-lap King of the Crate feature event. The event will accompany the GAF Modified Masters Open Modified 100-lap, $12,000 to win event. 

The 40 lap event will feature over $12,215 in prize money including $2,100 to the winner. 

“The SK Light Modified division has featured some great battles over the years and we are excited to put a new marquee event on the calendar for the teams,” explained Stafford GM David Arute. “The preliminary format is an opportunity for all drivers to turn some laps to try and make the feature.”

Between their 15-lap preliminary and 40-lap feature race, SK Light Modified teams and drivers will be tested, running 55 laps compared to their typical 28 laps. With a limited number of drivers qualifying for the 40-lap feature, a good run in the preliminary race will be vital for anyone who wants to take home the King of the Crate crown. 

“Being a midweek event we wanted to try something different,” continued Arute. “We now have a unique format for both the GAF Modified Masters for the Open Modifieds and the King of the Crate for the SK Light Modifieds. We’re looking forward to making this an annual can’t miss event on the Stafford Speedway calendar.”

Previously announced the GAF Modified Masters will include time trials, heat racing, a pole dash, and a 100-lap, $12,000 to win feature event. Full event details
