When Paul Dodorico of Long Island, NY looked to expand his racing resume in the summer of 2017, he looked no further than the Hoosier Mid-Atlantic Tire ATQMRA. Dodorico, a retired detective sergeant, has always had racing in his veins. The former crew member for Tom Baldwin’s legendary #7NY team earned his start behind the wheel running various divisions at Riverhead Raceway before finally settling into the Legends Car division in recent years.
“I have raced the Legend car all over; Riverhead, Bethel, Chemung, Waterford, Seekonk, the old Riverside Park just to name a few,”explained Dodorico. “I won 3 Legend championships at Bethel Motor speedway and have over 15 wins there. I have 2 Legend wins at Riverhead.”
While being accomplished in his current discipline of racing, Paul Dodorico looks forward to a new challenge in 2018 as he will be competing for rookie honors in the ATQMRA. Paul became interested in TQ’s this past summer at Wall Stadium, while pitted next to 2017 ATQMRA Series Champion Ryan Tidman and the Boyd Racing team. A friendly networking experience eventually led Dodorico to the doorstep of Colin Martin, owner of Spitfire Racing.
“Colin, along with BJ McDonald, is building me a brand new Spitfire and it is just about finished. The team is doing a great job on the car and this is a very exciting time for me in my racing career.”
Paul Dodorico has a steep learning curve ahead of him this year, however though the support of his team and family he fully expects to accomplish his goals and compete at a high level in 2018.
