WHITINSVILLE, Mass. – The Stan Mertz Racing Koopman Lumber No. 6 is looking for the big prize this Saturday at Stafford Motor Speedway. Driver Matt Galko will wheel the car in the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series NAPA Fall Final – with 80 laps on tap to battle for a $15,000 winning prize.
The race will mirror the Spring Sizzler from earlier in the year when it comes to talent, with the best of the best from around the entire Northeast and beyond set to compete, and more than 50 cars pre-registered for the event.
Galko and the Stan Mertz Racing have shown speed at Stafford all year, with multiple top-10 finishes. The NAPA Fall Final, the final race of the season at the Connecticut half-mile for Tour-Type Modifieds, would be the perfect time to land in Victory Lane.
“I’m really excited to give it one more shot at Stafford for the season, especially in the Fall Final,” Galko said. “We’ve shown consistent speed and have been contenders all year. With a little luck, there’s no reason why we won’t end the day in Victory Lane. It’s going to be arguably the best and the biggest race of the season in Modified racing. I’m excited to get to be part of it thanks to Stan Mertz and his entire crew and sponsor lineup.”
The race day schedule for the NAPA Fall Final includes practice at 11 a.m., followed by qualifying heats, consi’s and the B-Main at 1:30 p.m. The green flag for the 80-lap race, worth $15,000 to win, is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tickets will be available at the track, but for those who can’t make it there, fans can watch live on FloRacing.TV.
