Statement from David McGrath on Mike Stefanik

Statement from David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway, on Mike Stefanik, who died Sunday in a plane crash in Sterling, Conn.:

 

“Yesterday, the short track community lost one of the greatest modified drivers in history. Mike Stefanik was a true champion on and off the racetrack making a long-lasting mark on short track racing, specifically in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. With 10 career victories, Mike is one of New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s top winning drivers. I know that I can speak for everyone here, as well as our entire Speedway Motorsports, Inc. family, when I say that Mike will be truly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and the entire NASCAR community during this very difficult time.”
