For most local short track racers the thoughts of getting behind the wheel for the 2019 season are still months away as winter progresses. 

For Stafford Motor Speedway SK Light Modified division regular Bryan Narducci, the chance to turn laps will come rather quickly though.

And they will come at a speed the 18-year old has never experienced before. 

Narducci, of Colchester, will test with the Our Motorsports ARCA team Friday and Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. 

“I’m pretty excited,” Narducci said. “I definitely never imagined this would happen.”

Longtime Whelen Modified Tour driver Andy Seuss is the primary driver for the Our Motorsports ARCA team, which is owned by former Whelen Modified Tour team owner Chris Our. 

Narducci said he’s unsure of what could come about from the test or if there could be a possibility that he could make a start for the team this year. 

“I hope for something,” Narducci said. “You’re always hoping to do more stuff.” 

Narducci finished second in the SK Light Modified standings with five wins as a rookie in the division at Stafford Motor Speedway in 2018. He will return to the division full-time in 2019. He also has SK Light Modified wins at Thompson Speedway and the New London-Waterford Speedbowl. He also made his Valenti Modified Racing Series debut in 2018.

Narducci won the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division III national championship in 2018 and was runner-up nationally in the NASCAR UNOH Youth Achievement Award standings.

Narducci, who has cerebral palsy, made the jump from go-karts to the Limited Late Model division at Stafford Speedway in 2016.

C.J. McLaughlin of Framingham, Mass. will also test with the team this weekend. 

“Everyone on the Our Motorsports team has worked very hard to build a strong superspeedway team,” Seuss in a release. “We have only run a limited schedule, but that hard work has shown in just those few events. In the past four superspeedway races, we have two top five and three top ten finishes.  We have proven that we can run right up there at the front of the pack and contend for victories.  We will continue to chase that first victory while also trying to build the team for the future.  I’m excited to have the opportunity to continue driving the #02 and I’m also excited to help grow this team off the track by welcoming C.J. and Bryan.”
