Thanks to all the Mod drivers for taking time out of there Day to come and play with us.(tweaking our equipment a bit. all Cars are back at the fab shop. LOL). And best of all Mario Fiore (car owner 44) got to Drive and get even with his Drivers for all the stuff they did to his equipment.

Hi Everyone - I want to give a great big giant thanks to everyone who participated and came to the Occupy The Oval event featuring the first (annual?) 44 Challenge. We were able to raise some good money for the Trinca Family Memorial Trust, a more than worth wile cause. My first thanks needs to go to Mario Fiore, as he pulled all the right strings to get some real heavyweights to the event including Mike Stefanik & Rick Fuller. Thanks also to Justin Bonsignore for making the long trip and congrats to him in winning the 44 Challenge as a fill in! Thanks to Stafford Speedway for donating a gift basket as a door prize. I think Justin has a VERY bright future in racing of any scale. Thanks to Domenick Lia for participating, Donny, is a 2-time WMT champion and a ROAR R/C national champion and just a good guy! Todd Szegedy also came out to support the event and is a great person and one heck of a wheel! Todd is also a former WMT champion. Also thanks to people from New England Racing fuels were also in the house who attended. Still more thanks to Dale Cote', Michael Valentine, Kenneth Boehm, and Romano for donating and wrenching on the cars used in the 44 Challenge. Dale makes the "SK" Conversion kit and it is just AWESOME! Go to http://www.drc-engineering.com/ for more info on these cars. Thanks to Bradley Farmer for painting all of the 44 Challenge bodies and Justin Glaze for making all the custom decals for the bodies. Thank you to Joe Papa for shooting all the pictures for the event. Thank you to Rockin' Richard DiPaolo for calling the 44 Challenge main event. Finally, thank you to my nephew, Doc Forgette for helping all day long. He was my right hand man and helped out almost everyone at one time or another. I hope I remembered everyone! I'll keep everyone posted as to when I will have something on the RC Driver.com website or if I can get it into the shiny pages if the magazine. If anyone wants to still donate please make checks out to The Trinca Family Memorial Trust and send them to: Stafford Motor Speedway
P.O. Box 105
Stafford Springs, CT 06076

Great job by all, things like this is what puts madness on top of the list of places to race.
My best time of the night was doing a little spotting for todd. I guess he's a good driver with any kind of wheel in his hand. The car wasnt too bad either Bill.

Thats awesome Dean....

Was thinking if you make this an annual thing, we could get alot more drivers involved, possibly have a race just for ALL the Whelen drivers....

Hey Bill,

Mario and I were thinking just that! Problem is, getting enough cars and custom bodies for them!
