“I’m looking to continue supporting the SK Light division because that was one of Dad’s favorite divisions,” said Emily Gaston.  “He was a big fan of watching drivers move up from Wild Thing Karts to the SK Light division.  I grew up coming to the races at Stafford so I’m trying to continue Dad’s legacy and keep the word out there about the GRE6 store.  Stafford has been really good to us over the years and I’m committed to supporting Stafford.”

The $100 weekly bonus won’t be the only contribution to the SK Light field that Gaston will be making during the 2022 season.  Gaston will recognize the last 10 finishing cars of the SK Light Feature events with a $25 gift certificate commencing with the feature finish from May 13.

“In addition to the contingency bonus, I’m doing something from the store which is a $25 gift card to each of the last 10 finishers from each SK Light race,” said Gaston.  “The drivers who finish in the back usually don’t get any bonus money so hopefully this little bit extra will help those drivers finish what they started and keep on coming back to the track every week.  The last 10 cars that finish each race until the end of the season will all get a $25 gift certificate to and drivers will have until November 1, 2022 to use the in-store credits.  The Finish What You Started Bonus Winners will be posted on the GRE6 Facebook page.” is the online store of Gaston Racing Enterprises and is your one stop shop for all your racing parts needs.  Visit or visit GRE6 on Facebook to see what is in stock and to place an order.
