Tri-Track Open Modified Series Set To Close Out Second Season At Speedbowl Super Bowl

(Press Release from Tri-Track Open Modified Series)

New London Waterford Speedbowl LogoThe Northeast Race Cars and Parts Tri Track Open Modified Series will conclude their 2015 season as part of the inaugural Bemer’s Super Bowl at New London-Waterford Speedbowl on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 25.

The event will be a non-points affair for the ground-pounding tour-type Modifieds.

The series saw four intense points races in 2015 at Lee USA Speedway, Monadnock Speedway, Seekonk Speedway and New London-Waterford, with four different feature winners. The 2015 series champion was “Money” Matt Hirschman, who won at Monadnock and locked up the championship crown with a third place finish at the Speedbowl in September.

The series will run the fifth event of the year under a different format than the first four. There will be two 35 lap qualifying races to start Sunday afternoon that will qualify a total of 22 cars into the 65-lap main event. There will be no heat races or consolation events.

The series will use a blind draw to line up the twin 35 lap feature’s, splitting the car count exactly in half. For example, if 40 cars show up at the Speedbowl on that Sunday, 20 will be in the first feature and 20 will be in the second feature.

At the conclusion of each qualifying feature, the top 11 in each will transfer on into the main event. The 65 lap feature will include the 22 transfer drivers, plus up to four series option provisionals.

Coming into the weekend, more than 40 drivers have penciled the event into their calendar and filed an entry with the series. All four winners this season have filed an entry — those being Hirschman, Chris Pasteryak, Richard Savary and Ron Silk. Point standings runner-up Todd Annarummo has filed to race, as has NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour points runner-up Ryan Preece.

Jamie Tomaino, Chase Dowling and Max Zachem are among drivers that will be entering the event that have not run with the series during the 2015 racing season to date.

Payout for the 35 lap qualifying races:

13-24 in the qualifying races will pay $400.

Payout for the 65 lap feature:

Series officials will also award a $200 bonus for 34 teams that competed at the Lee USA Speedway and Monadnock Speedway events earlier in the season.

Also in attendance on the Sunday afternoon will be New London-Waterford Speedbowl Mini Stocks, who will hold a 35 lap feature event. The $2,000 to win “Battle of the Sound” for U.S. Legend Cars will also take place, and will be 50 laps in distance.

The series wishes to thank all of the fans, drivers, teams, sponsors and officials for the support during the 2015 racing season.

  1. This is just great.

    The union of an impressive mod series and the revival of a legendary race track.

    It should be a great event to wind down racing in the region.

  2. This series reminds me of the first few years of the “Thompson 300”. Large fields of modifieds coming from all over the Northeast. A chance to see track champions and top drivers from other tracks (or nowadays series) all racing in one event. I hope it continues next year!!!

  3. Just as the Tri-Track has been a breath of fresh air to the mod world, it would be extremely exciting if the Thompson 300 would return, with real pit stops.

  4. It would be nice if the Tri Track Series would Josh Canada and OTB productions could bring back the 300 as an open race

  5. Andy Boright says

    Nothing about this series reminds me of the Thompson 300. The Thompson 300 had the best modified drivers from up and down the east coast when the talent was supreme. This series caters to a lot of drivers who can’t win anywhere else.

    The Thompson 300 was promoted near & far, the Tri-Track series is promoted like a guarded secret.

    OTB productions is the last group I think could bring back the Thompson 300, if you go by their work on that little street stock tour and GSPSS. Just a group of flounders who don’t have any idea what they are doing, but what to feel important anyway.

  6. Finer: what is going to be done over the winter to the Speedbowl ?

  7. Finer, the general manager of the bowl stated that improvements will be made. On the list are: bathrooms, new fence, new grandstands, concessions and fixing the walls in the turns. They’re just not sure what will be done first or for the coming season. If it was me I would start with safety and putting up a new catch fence. Luckily the fence hasn’t been tested to see if it would keep a car from going through it.
