Story By: CHRIS LEONE / BULLRING BASH – ATTLEBORO, MA – The Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge presented by RaceChoice is closing in fast on its first-ever event, the Thunder in the Mountains 100 at White Mountain Motorsports Park. With around 20 cars in both the Modifieds and MSD Legends divisions expected for Saturday’s event, both drivers and owners are growing more and more excited about Saturday’s event.
Sam Kramer, the owner of Richard Savary’s No. 99 Modified, said the race was a good option for their team.
“We’ve been looking for some shots to race,” Kramer said. “We pick and choose where we go. We’re not looking to run a full series… It just fit perfectly into our schedule.”
There’s also a slate of Modified competitors ready to race, including Whelen Modified Tour winner Woody Pitkat and Modified Racing Series points leader Mike Willis.
”Definitely nice to get all the big-name guys coming at you,” Willis said. “You’ve got this guy who won this and this guy who won that. It definitely revs up the show a lot.”
Kramer was one to agree.
“You want to race against the best in New England,” he said.
For many drivers, this will be their first trip to race White Mountain Motorsports Park, which makes the race a wild-card of sorts.
“I’ve only been there to spot and crew before,” Willis said. “I think it’s awesome that everyone will be in the same place because you’re not going to somebody’s home track, so everybody’s gotta learn the groove.”
Saturday will be the first time Anthony Nocella goes to WMMP at all.
”I’ve never even seen the track,” he said. “I like going to new places. It’s something different. I’ve heard from a lot of people that its a real fun track, a fast track, and that it’s fun to race on.”
Bullring Bash founder Josh Vanada remains excited for the green flag to drop on the inaugural Bullring Bash event.
“I know it’s been a long wait for fans in the Northeast, but the time is finally here,” Vanada said. “I can’t wait for the racing to get started on Saturday!”
