Nicky Porto spent most of his career at the Plainville Stadium being one of the top drivers in the Modified Division for many years driving his familiar #69.  Nicky became a regular at  the Riverside Park Speedway for the 1975 season where he picked up one feature win before returning to Plainville Stadium.  Nicky ventured out to other tracks from time to time as most drivers of the era did, but found most of his success on the 1/4 mile Plainville Oval.
