On Tap: Bookending The Weekend With Modified Tours

It’s a racing weekend beginning and ending with touring Modified divisions hitting the ovals at two of the state’s short tracks.

It starts Thursday when the Whelen Modified Tour competes for the second time in seven days in state with the running of the Budweiser 150 at Thompson International Speedway.

It’s the second of four trips for the Modified Tour this year to Thompson International Speedway. Reigning series champion Ron Silk won in the division’s season opener on April 15 at the track.

The Whelen Modified Tour is coming off the Stafford 150 last Friday at Stafford, an event that saw series points leader Doug Coby win for the fourth time in seven Tour events this year.

The rolling of Tour of Tours continues Saturday with the running of the Waterford Speedbowl’s annual Wings and Wheels show.

The event sees the Valenti Modified Racing Series, International SuperModified Association and Northeast Midget Association sharing the stage at the shoreline oval.
