STAFFORD-TRACK-LOGODavid Arute Wins Magnus Racing Products SK Light Rookie of the Year Runner Up Bonus at Stafford Motor Speedway

(Stafford Springs, CT)—For the second season in a row, Magnus Racing Products is presenting a Rookie of the Year Runner up bonus to Stafford’s SK Light Modified NASCAR Whelen All-American Series division. Taking home a $300 bonus from Magnus in the SK Light division is Tolland native David Arute, driver of the #75 Big Haus USA Racing Products Chevrolet.

After racing in the DARE Stock division in 2011 and then the Limited Late Model division from 2012-2015 at Stafford Motor Speedway, Arute made the move into the SK Light Modified division for the 2016 season. To help himself get acclimated to the open wheeled car after five seasons in a full fendered car he made 7 starts in 2015 at Waterford and one start at Stafford in the season ending Fall Final where he finished ninth. That preparation was key to helping Arute to 1 win, 8 top-5, and 12 top-10 finishes this season in 17 starts, but Arute says there is always plenty to learn.
