Story By: DALE WOLBRINK / TRI-TRACK OPEN MODIFIED SERIES – SEEKONK, MA – In what will be the most robust schedule since its inception, the Tri-Track Open Modified (TTOMS) announced six race dates for the 2019 season. The series will visit the Granite State three times during the season in a schedule marked by both traditional favorites and budding newer events.
“It is always exciting for us to know that track operators have faith in the product that our competitors and series officials put out year-after-year,” said TTOMS Managing partner, Wayne Darling, “not only to keep our existing events but to also secure new dates.”
Once again, the Series will kick off the season at Claremont Speedway in Claremont, NH, with the running of the second annual Claremont 100 on Saturday, May 25. The event was hugely successful in its inaugural year with strong car counts, enthusiastic fan support and great racing.
The summer events kick-off with two traditional favorites. The popular $10,000 Open Wheel Wednesday at Seekonk Speedway will take place on June 26. The SBM 125 at Star Speedway is set for Saturday, July 27 at the ultra-competitive Epping, NH, bullring.
On Saturday, August 24, TTOMS will make its debut at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, ME. The 100-lapper for the Modifieds is set for the eve of the Oxford 250.
“To be part of what is one the most prestigious weekend of racing in New England, if not the country, is a huge opportunity for our Series,” said Darling. “We plan to make the most of it.”
The final two events of the season include the Monadnock 100 at Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, NH, on Saturday, September 14 and the fun and festive Haunted Hundred on Saturday, October 26 at Seekonk Speedway.
Over the course of the six-event schedule, competitors will vie for over quarter of a million dollars in purse money.
Pre-registration for teams looking to compete in the six-race schedule with eligibility for the point fund and bonus plan will be open in the coming weeks and will be available online at tritrackmods.com.
