Kirk Alexander Ready To Return To Modified Racing Series Action At Monadnock Speedway

2014 VMRS LogoThe all-time winningest driver in the 11-year history of the Modified Racing Series is set to make a return to action Saturday at Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, N.H.

Three-time series champion Kirk Alexander of West Swanzey, N.H., will return to the track in the division for the first time since 2012 on Saturday for team owner John Corliss.

Alexander will fill the seat normally occupied by longtime series veteran Jim Boniface, who is battling cancer. Alexander lost a brother to cancer in 2008.

“Jim and I were fierce rivals,” Alexander said in a release from the Modified Racing Series. “He wanted to win. I wanted to win. We came from the same area. We raced the same tracks. It’s sad to see what he’s going through. It brings me back. I’d love to win for him Saturday night. Jim hopes to be at the track if at all possible.

“It wasn’t hard to make a decision … That car is just like mine and it’s got a great motor. I told the owner I’d be happy to run it for them. I was toying with putting my own back together for the July show. This is perfect. We’ll run the Monadnock shows for sure and we’ll look at others.”

Alexander won in the series’ first event on April 17, 2004. He won series championships in 2004, 2005 and 2007. He has 31 wins in 93 career starts for a staggering winning percentage of 33 percent. Les Hinckley III is second on the all-time win list for the series with 17 victories. Alexander’s last victory came on July 3, 2010. Sixteen of Alexander’s 31 wins have come at Monadnock.

The Modified Racing Series opened its 2014 season Sunday with the running of the Blastoff 100 at the Waterford Speedbowl, which was won by Keith Rocco.
