DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 2, 2013) ...

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 2, 2013) - A large part of NASCAR history in his own right, Mike Stefanik is set to participate in the historical and inaugural UNOH Battle At The Beach at Daytona International Speedway, Feb. 18-19.
For the first time, NASCAR's weekly and regional touring series will have a prominent place during Budweiser Speedweeks in Daytona, the "Worlds Center of Racing. As a nine-time touring series champion, Stefanik had to be a part of it.
"At Daytona, whether you win on the road course, the big track or the small track, the trophy will be worth its weight in gold," Stefanik said.
Stefanik knows a little something about trophies. He shares the all-time record of nine NASCAR championships with NASCAR Hall of Famer Richie Evans. Stefanik won seven NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championships as well as a pair of NASCAR K&N Pro Series East titles.
Stefanik, from Coventry, R.I., has a locked-in starting position for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour feature in the UNOH Battle At The Beach by virtue of his tour win during the 2012 season at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It was a record-extending 72nd career Whelen Modified Tour victory for Stefanik. Drivers to win touring series races and championships in 2012 are locked into their respective features in Daytona; All others must qualify through heat races.
Unlike the vast majority of touring and weekly competitors that will head to Florida in February, Stefanik has raced before at Daytona - the NASCAR Nationwide Series event during Speedweeks in 1994. That was on the big track, however, and the UNOH Battle At The Beach will be contested on a.4-mile oval on the track's backstretch.
"I don't really know that much about how the track is going to race, I just know our car owner wants to go," Stefanik said. "It's going to be good for our team to get together and get a race in before things really get going around here [New England], so that's always a bonus."
Stefanik will head to Daytona with a slightly different team dynamic than he had during the 2012 season in which he piloted the No. 66 that was a joint effort between two different teams owned Ed Marceau and Chris Our. For Daytona and the upcoming Whelen Modified Tour season, Stefanik will compete solely for Our in a No. 22 Modified and Brad Lafontaine will remain the crew chief.

Coventry, RI native and 7-time NWMT champion Mike Stefanik will be part of the starting field. After parting ways with the #22 Christopher Our owned team after the 2013 season, Stefanik has been driving part time for Ed Marcau's #1 Cady's Tavern team and there couldn't be a better track for Stefanik to add to his part-time schedule.

Stefanik began his racing career at Stafford in the LM-Sportsman class in the late '70's and he later moved into the weekly modified division while also competing on the Whelen Modified Tour. The list of accomplishments that Stefanik has amassed over his career at Stafford are truly astronomical. Stefanik has made 451 career NWMT starts with 95 of them coming at Stafford for a percentage of 21%. In a little less than one-fourth of his career starts, consider what Stefanik has accomplished at Stafford in an Whelen Modified Tour car: he has recorded 20 of his 74 career wins, which is 27%; he has won 17 of his 48 career pole positions, which is 35%; he has recorded 50 of his 223 career top-5 and 74 of his 300 career top-10 finishes at Stafford, which equates to 22% and 25%. In his 95 career Stafford starts, Stefanik has led 165 of the 13,697 laps that he has completed which is 16%. In addition to his NWMT exploits at Stafford, Stefanik is a 2-time Stafford track champion; winning a LM-Sportsman title in 1979 and a Modified track title in 1986 when Stafford ran both Tour Type Modifieds as well as SK Modifieds® as weekly divisions. Stefanik's last Stafford victory came in the 2008 Fall Final but he is feeling good about his chances of being in contention for career victory number 21 at the Connecticut half-mile facility.
