American-Canadian Tour (ACT), Pro All Stars Series (PASS), and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park officials have announced the initial list of participants for the 58th World Series of Speedway Racing. Fifteen divisions and touring series have been confirmed for the event scheduled for Friday, October 11 through Sunday, October 13. Additional divisions could be added as discussions continue.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will once again return to the World Series for a 150-lap event. The NASCAR Modifieds have been part of every World Series since the touring era began in 1985, making this their 36th consecutive appearance at the prestigious event.

They are just one of several Modified events throughout the weekend. A Tour-Type Modified Open is scheduled and the 350 Supermodifieds will be part of the program. Thompson’s Sunoco Modifieds and SK Light Modifeds are also slated for the World Series. The rest of Thompson’s local divisions are on the card as well, including the Limited Sportsmen and Mini Stocks.

Local Thompson Late Model racers can take part in a non-point open event for ACT-type Late Models, which use the same rules as weekly racing. Additional open events are planned for 8-cylinder Street Stocks and the Vintage Modifieds.

Multiple other touring series are making the World Series part of their championship chases. The PASS Super Late Models, which have been a part of the last three Icebreaker weekends, are getting their first call for the World Series. The EXiT Realty Pro Truck Challenge and North East Mini Stock Tour have been World Series regulars in recent years and return in 2020.

Last but not least, the Senior Tour Auto Racers Modifeds and STAR Sportsmen will compete at the World Series. Along with the Vintage Modified Open, it gives fans three chances to see the cars of yesteryear take to the 5/8-mile oval once again.

In other news, officials have added the SK Light Modifieds to the Thompson 150 on Wednesday, September 2. They join a card that also includes the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Sunoco Modifieds, Late Models, Limited Sportsmen, and Mini Stocks. Qualifying begins at 5:00pm with features starting at 6:00pm. Advance tickets are available now at https://happsnow.com/event/Thompson-Speedway-Motorsports-Park.

All divisions and series that are confirmed for the World Series and/or Thompson 150 are invited to take part in a Thompson Speedway open practice on Wednesday, August 19. Teams are asked to email [email protected] or [email protected] if they are attending so officials can plan accordingly.

The tentative practice day plan is to open the pits in the late morning with practice throughout the afternoon. Exact times will be announced later this week. Pit admission is $25 per person.

  1. What are the rules that are going to be used for the weekly divisions. Are they the same rules that Thompson posted in March?

  2. What is the purse going to be for the support divisions at the two Thompson events? Same as 2019 or the ridiculous 75% reduction proposed by the Hoenig Family? With nearly $50 for an adult ticket it should be a generous payout for all divisions in competition.

  3. I gotta say the ACT/Pass group are getting things done nicely!!! Thanks so much and I hope this will continue in 2021 and beyond……….

  4. What Paul T said

    October 11, 12 and 13 isn’t correct. Guess some will have to decide weather to skip the Friday night at Thompson and go to Stafford instead. Deciding factor for me might be the camping situation at Thompson this year.

  6. It says the 350 supers will be at the World Series and that other touring divisions could be added…does that mean that the ISMA supers could be left off the schedule? ISMA has only had 3 races up to this point, 2 at Sandusky and 1 at Lee. the Canadian border being closed doesn’t help their cause

  7. Glad to see the World Series has been rescued — and by a very interesting pairing. The last couple years have seen a lot more cooperation — as opposed to competition and Lone Ranger-ism — in the northern racing scene. Tom Mayberry is always TRYING things… He always has ideas.

    On the downside, I’m a little leery about some of the divisions that may end up on the card. Thompson shines with either fast divisions (Supers, Mods) or slower divisions with lots of cars (whatever we’re calling Street Stocks nowadays). I don’t really need to see the ProTrucks or NE Mini Stock tour at another World Series. And I’m not really hyped about 350 Supers or any of these vintage series that Mayberry loves to include. What works on a 1/4-mile or 1/3-mile track doesn’t necessarily translate well to Thompson.

    But, hey, just happy to have a World Series this year. I wonder if they’ll be offering PPV (for all the series except the Tour Mods).

    The open tour mod is interesting. What happened to the MRS? Isn’t 15 divisions enough though. Isn’t that they usually have?

  9. Suitcase Jake says

    The number of divisions that come to Thompson for the World Series is part of the Tremendous money that flows through the back gate . The $75.00 fee, the usual cost of pit pass really adds up when you consider all those add on divisions that you may or may not be interested in. In the recent past they have even announce over the PA that they had 250 cars signed into the pit. If you add in an Average of 5 people per car some more , some less. Also you have lots of People who buy pit passes to get in early to secure their seats for the weekend, Some come in pits to see old friends or see the cars up close and personal. I have seen cars parked everywhere you can imagine at the World Series the whole property completely full. One track owner said to me ” THIS PLACE IS A GOLD MINE ” the back gate pays for most everything, The Front gate with concessions , the Club House with all the breakfasts and Prime Rib Dinners, The Golf Course , Ice Cream Business. All of that money is gravy for the Owners. This is the reason you have so many divisions , They drive profits . $$$ Its the Crown Jewel event in Northeast…!!
