Coming off a 4th place finish in Stafford Speedway’s 50th Annual NAPA Spring Sizzler® to go along with 3rd and 6th place finishes thus far in the SK Modified® division, Ellington native Ronnie Williams is looking to continue his strong performances in the CBYD Open 81 this Friday, May 20th. Williams started the 100-lap Sizzler® from 12th place, worked his way into the top-10 within the first 20 laps of the race, and then spent the second half of the race in the top-7 eventually racing his way to a fourth place finish. While Williams says his #50 Empower Financial Advisory / Les’s Auto Center car was just a little off to make a run for a NAPA Spring Sizzler® win, a small adjustment is all that is needed to make the #50 a winning car in the CBYD 81.
