Brian Robie Hopes To Hit Double With Valenti Mod Series At Monadnock Saturday

(Press Release from the Modified Racing Series)

When the Valenti Modified Racing Series rolls into Monadnock Speedway, Winchester, NH, on Saturday, June 8, Sunapee NH, driver Brian Robie hopes to score both ends of the two modified races scheduled.

The 31-year old driver, now in his fourth season, will compete in the track’s Crate (sportsman modified) division and the ‘Valenti Modified Racing Series 100.’ It will be the VMRS first race at Monadnock this season. 

Robie considered leaning more toward tour-type modified options this season and taking the year off from the sportsman modified division until it was announced 604 crate’s would be the rule in 2019.

Robie explained, “ they made the switch instead of the 602’s which puts them more in line with the tour type cars – a little bit more fun to drive – I’d like to support that series (Claremont and Monadnock.) I’d like to see it take off. I think its going to be a good thing for modified racing,”

As for the VMRS, Robie will focus on the the entire schedule with a plan. 

“I declared for rookie eligibility with the series and plan on running every event except for one but I’m going to attempt to pull off the Rookie of the Year” said Robie. 

Robie is entering his fourth season racing modifieds. “It’s funny I saw on Facebook a memory three years ago of the first car I had. A home built chassis that me and Bobby Turner built together. I really had no idea of what I was doing and it kind of put things in perspective for me. I never raced anything else. I jumped in feet first. It’s all I ever wanted to drive,” stated Robie.

Robie is currently 9th in the early point standings after finishing 11th and 6th in the Twin 50’s at Lee last month.

Gates open at 3:00 PM with qualifying at 6:00 PM at Monadnock.
