CCSU/Stefanik Make “Leno” Monologue

mikesAre you a Connecticut race car fan? Did you happen to catch Jay Leno’s monologue last Friday on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno?” Connecticut track regular Mike Stefanik was one of the stars.

Stefanik  missed winning the Whelan Modified Tour “Battle At the Beach” race in Daytona Beach Thursday, after being pushed out of the lead in the white-flag lap by eventual winner Steve Park. Stefanik was, well, less than happy and minced no words in a nasty, very well-publicized tv interview with Fox Sports after the disappointing race.

Leno, a car fan, jumped on the news clips of the seething, stone-faced Stefanik and turned it into a comical bit portraying him as a guy you definitely would not want to be with at light-hearted events including a birthday party or a wedding.

And in the same monologue, Central Connecticut State University got a shout out for its recent survey on the most illiterate cities in the United States. For the second year in a row,  Bakersfield, California was the worst and Leno, of course, couldn’t help but comment.
