Coming off top-10 finishes in five of his first six Tour-Type Modified races, Teddy Hodgdon is filled with confidence as the team heads for opening weekend at Stafford Motor Speedway this Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24. Hodgdon, who finished seventh in the Icebreaker 125 at Thompson Speedway on April 9, also competed at the World Series at New Smyrna Speedway in February – finishing top-10 in all but one race of the five – and also finishing third in points for the prestigious week.
Now, Hodgdon is hoping to collect a $15,000 winning prize in the 50th anniversary of the NAPA Spring Sizzler at Stafford. On top of racing for the big prize in the 100-lap Spring Sizzler – which will also award the winning driver a seat in the SRX (Superstar Racing Experience) event at Stafford on July 2 – Hodgdon will also compete in the SK Modified division with a new team. Hodgdon will be driving the No. 22 owned by Dan Avery and prepared by Mike O’Sullivan in Stafford’s top division for the 2022 season. This weekend, he will hit the track in competitive action for the first time with the group.
It’s time for some double-duty.
“I’m super excited to pull double-duty this weekend at Stafford,” Teddy Hodgdon said. “I feel like we have a good opportunity to start off the season strong with both of our teams. The Open Modified was pretty sporty in practice last weekend, so I think we can carry that momentum as a whole into the Spring Sizzler this weekend.”
On Saturday, Hodgdon will compete in qualifying racing for the Spring Sizzler. Following a draw for heat races, teams will compete in 8-lap heats, then the field will be split-up into two, 40-lap NAPA Auto Parts Duel races, where the top-10 drivers in each will advance directly to the Spring Sizzler 100 on Sunday. For those who don’t make it, Last Chance Qualifying races will take place on Sunday. The SK Modified portion of the show – including heats and the 40-lap feature – will take place on Sunday, along with the 100-lap Spring Sizzler.
Tickets are available online at StaffordMotorSpeedway.com and will also be available at the track on race day. For those who can’t make it to the track, the race will air live on FloRacing.TV as part of a subscription service.
