Claremont Speedway To Host Meeting Regarding Future Of Tour Type Modified Division 

(Press Release from Claremont Speedway)

Claremont Speedway’s management team is hosting a meeting for Tour-Type Modified owners this Saturday, November 18, at the speedway to discuss the division’s future at Claremont Speedway.

Having operated a biweekly schedule for the open-wheelers the past two seasons, Claremont Speedway has seen an 8-12 car field since being added as part of a four division weekly racing series. With a reduced car count and an influx of Tour-Type Modified touring series to lose entries to this past season, track management is seeking race team input on how to make the division succeed, whether it is a biweekly or an abbreviated high-money award series.

“Modified racing has been a staple of Claremont Speedway’s history,” stated Toby Batchelder, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Continuing Tour-Type Modified racing is important to us which is why we are seeking feedback from race teams on how to increase car count and continue to allow the Tour-Type Modifieds a competition venue outside of a touring series.”

“We are honored to have a core group of Modified teams calling Claremont Speedway home and would love to see additional teams join a long list of Modified competitors at the Northeast’s home for Tour-Type Modifieds,” stated Batchelder. “Dollar for dollar, our biweekly racing series is a cost-effective choice for teams starting out in this acumen of racing and displaying their craft in front of an educated and passionate fan base.”

This Saturday’s meeting takes place in the speedway’s pit barn at 1 PM. Please bring your suggestions and feedback. If you are unable to attend this meeting, please contact the speedway by email at [email protected] or by messaging the track on our Facebook page with your input.

Claremont Speedway, beginning its 72nd year of operation in 2018, is a semi-banked 1/3 mile asphalt oval nestled in the hills of Claremont, NH at 282 Thrasher Road. Tour-Type Modifieds, Super Streets, Street Stocks and 4-Cylinder Wildcats make up the weekly racing series. For more information, please visit or like us on Facebook.
