Story By: PAUL ARUTE / STAFFORD MOTOR SPEEDWAY – STAFFORD SPRINGS, CT – Stafford Motor Speedway and FloRacing are proud to announce a groundbreaking partnership to bring live racing from Stafford Speedway to the FloRacing platform.
New for the 2021 season, all Stafford Speedway weekly events will be streamed live on FloRacing making Stafford the first asphalt track on the nationally recognized platform.
All Stafford Speedway events excluding the NASCAR Modified Tour and SRX Series will be broadcast live exclusively on FloRacing for the 2021 season beginning with the NAPA Auto Parts Opening Day Saturday, April 24th and running weekly through NAPA Auto Parts Championship Night on Friday, October 1st. The Stafford Speedway productions team will continue to produce the weekly broadcast streamed on FloRacing.
“The same first class production that race fans enjoyed on StaffordSpeedway.tv will move over to FloRacing,” explained Stafford Speedway COO Paul Arute. “Racing at Stafford Speedway will now be on a national stage alongside the Chili Bowl, Eldora Speedway, USAC Racing, and the All Star Circuit of Champions. FloRacing gives our fans the ultimate in live streaming access for just $150 per year.”

“FloSports is excited about the impact this partnership will have on pavement racing,” said FloSports Vice President of Rights Acquisition, Mike Levy. “It advances our already robust position in motorsports while allowing us to showcase the Stafford Speedway legacy that has, and will continue to be, a staple in the sport.”
FloRacing subscribers will be treated to an impressive 2021 racing schedule at Stafford Speedway with 25 events on the calendar including multiple extra distance races for the SK Modified® division as well as four 80-lap Open Modified events across the calendar.
“Just over 1 month ago we made the tough decision to run independent in 2021,” continued Arute. “Opportunities like this are exactly why we chose the independent path. We are extremely excited to partner with FloRacing. This partnership puts Stafford Speedway in front of a national audience and also provides opportunities for our race teams to market their sponsors on to an even wider audience of viewers.”
In addition to broadcasting the 2021 Stafford Speedway season, FloRacing has posted $40,000 in bonus money which will be distributed to the Stafford Speedway weekly competitors. The FloRacing bonus will be awarded to each of the top-10 finishers across all 5 of Stafford Speedway’s weekly divisions on specified nights. Each division will have 4 events in which the FloRacing bonus will be awarded. The $40,000 bonus nearly doubles the payout teams received from StaffordSpeedway.tv in 2020.
“The FloSports value proposition shines brightest when we’re able to meaningfully contribute to all levels of the sports we cover,” according to Levy. “Elevating the economy for drivers, sponsors, and rights holders is typically a recipe for success.”
“Between the FloRacing bonus and our new track point fund there will be at least $73,000 in new awards on top of our weekly payouts in 2021,” continued Arute. “We are looking forward to kicking off the 2021 season and showcasing the most talented weekly drivers in the country right here at Stafford.”
Race fans are encouraged to subscribe to FloRacing today to gain access to the full slate of live streamed events currently on the calendar. The Stafford Speedway season will kick-off Saturday, April 24th with 5 divisions of racing on NAPA Auto Parts Opening day all streamed live on Flo Racing.
