Staropoli has Strong Runner-Up Finish at Showtime Speedway


St. Petersburg, FL – The Star Racing team ventured to Showtime Speedway for their 50-lap season finale on November 5th. After fighting the handling earlier in the day, the Star Racing team found some speed and were able to qualify the #97 late model in 3rd.

With the invert, Staropoli started in 5th and was involved in a multi-lap battle that saw him complete a three wide pass in the middle to secure 3rd place. He then set sail, moving into second place at approximately the halfway mark of the event. The remainder of the race went caution-free, and despite reeling in the leader to almost 5 car-lengths from over a straightaway back, time was not on Staropoli’s side, and he ultimately crossed the finish line P2.
