NorthEast Race Cars Tri-Track Open Modified Series Releases 2017 Schedule

(Press Release from NorthEast Race Cars Tri-Track Open Modified Series)

The Northeast Race Cars Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) announced today the 2017 schedule of events. The now traditional four-race schedule is a combination of mid-week and weekend shows that kicks-off at Seekonk Speedway in Seekonk, Ma. followed by a stop at Star Speedway in Epping, N.H. and culminates with a pair of races at the New London Waterford Speedbowl in Connecticut.

“The schedule was a strong one to begin with,” said Wayne Darling, managing partner. “The goal simply was to ccontinue doing what works. The partnerships that we enjoy with these three race track is, in large part, why this format has been successful in the past.”

The TTOMS season will commence on June 28 at Seekonk Speedway with the running of Open Wheel Wednesday. This popular event has attracted the biggest names in racing including the newly crowned NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby, who was last year’s winner of the event. It was his third Open Wheel Wednesday victory.

“Seekonk Speedway is excited to have the Tri-Track series back again for the 14th annual Open Wheel Wednesday featuring the $10,000 to win main modified event,” said Ed St. Germain, director of business development for Seekonk Speedway. “We look forward to working with the organizers and helping the series grow in years to come.”

The second race on the schedule is the SBM VI at Star Speedway on Saturday, July 29. This two-groove bullring has been the site of many great Modified battles. With championship drivers like Jon McKennedy calling Star Speedway home, the competition is always fierce.

“Since its inception the SBM event has been an important race to us here at Star Speedway,” said owner and promoter Bobby Webber, Jr. “We are happy that we were able to keep it going strong through the affiliation with the Tri-Track Open Modified Series over the last few years. My family and I are proud to work with a group that, like us, believes in the grassroots of racing.”

The series finishes up with two events at the New London Waterford Speedbowl including Wednesday August 23 and Sunday, October 22, 2017 as part of the Bemer’s Big Show. Another ultra-competitive quarter-mile speedway, the events at the New London Waterford Speedbowl draw the best-of-the best in Modified competition. Championship drivers dot the entry lists for the TTOMS events at the Speedbowl last season including the likes of hometown favorite Chris Pasteryak, Ryan Preece, Ronnie Silk, perennial Waterford and SK Modified Champion Keith Rocco, Woody Pitkat, and Rowan Pennink. “Big Money” Matt Hirschman and Steve Masse split wins at the Speedbowl in 2016.

“Car counts were strong at each of the events held in 2016,” added Darling. “With basically the same schedule and a focus on improving the program operationally, we firmly anticipate that it will be equally, if not stronger, in 2017.”

    Amazing that a four race “series” gets so much buzz.

    Oh wait, it’s the HUGE purses that get all the buzz.

    Does anybody see the obvious yet? To get the cars to come out, ya gotta have the basic three reasons: Purse, purse, and purse.

    These guys get it. They understand that the product has to be promoted. TTOMS races are on my calendar.

    NASCAR never had to sell or promote… until now.

  3. Best series for Modified teams, they give out bonus tires,bonus money,and good purse. They really appreciate the Teams that show up,and they aren’t trying to make money off us racers.

  4. Meanwhile, cricket sounds from Valenti MRS. They were “a couple days away” from announcing their schedule five weeks ago. All the other schedules have been released.

  5. All though a big supporter of the so called NASCAR home track perhaps it’s best to say the home track cans still be a home track without the NASCAR flag and all that goes or doesn’t go with it. It seems if this series can put up the money they will come. Maybe it’s time to stop the NASCAR perversion and keep their hand out of the cookie jar! Great job tri track!

    I’m going to these races! I love watching all you boys race those slick track go karts at Wayne’s fine little play palace… and I do it from one of his nice hotel rooms at the Hampton!
    My biggest decision is the holiday weekend afterwards. Do I go to Newport? Do I ferry over to the Vineyard? Or do I go to Coney Island and watch a world championship hot dog race? Decisions… decisions… decisions!

  7. Liz, if you’d like to keep a racing theme for the July holiday, you could go to the MTS modified race at Monadnock on 7/1. OR… if your looking for a weekend event, try the NHRA regional race at Lebanon Valley near Albany 6/30-7/2. Three days of drag racing with dirt modifieds Friday night at Albany-Saratoga and Saturday night at Lebanon Valley.

  8. Hey fast, if you believe Liz is really a Liz I am loosing faith in you lol………

  9. Humphry, I’m just goin’ with the flow! Besides, regardless of who it is and how serious they may or may not be, ya gotta admit, those are pretty good options for 4th of July weekend. The three day weekend is usually my annual dose of dirt racing, with some drag racing added in.

  10. I agree fast, last time I was at Lebanon Valley was for the world of outlaws. They definitely have their act together when it comes to dirt. Not really a straight line guy myself but that’s me. And your right about the flow, definitely a hoot!

  11. Liz definitely doesn’t seem to be the typical modified fan. Her posts read like she would be better suited to the VIP paddock area at Lime Rock or Watkins Glen, where the bubbly flows more freely! I was at Lime Rock on Memorial Day years ago; you could have heard a pin drop as everyone in their suits, Easter bonnets, and fancy glasses were staring at me cutting through the VIP area in my jeans and racing t-shirt! It was the first time I ever saw a “fancy pants” area at a racetrack! {:-)

    You’re right! I’m not a Liz…
    My real name is Condoleezza! I use Liz because it’s difficult to spell and it gets butchered more often than Sam Franklin personally sliced meats for his bowling partner, Alice Nelson.

    Speaking of butchering… Please pardon the oversight on my part, but I didn’t realize that only owners and not consumers of Rocky Mountain Oysters opined on this board… Beware of femme fatale!
