  1. This is a well deserved recognition for for the Tri-Track racing guys. To put this series together they must have worked many hours along with risking their own funds for something they beleive will be good for the modified community. I hope the series continues to grow and they schedule more races in the future. I’ve been to all the Tri-Track shows so far and the type of throw-back show they produce is simply outstanding. Job well done!

  2. I agree, these guys put on a great show for the modified fans
