Justin Bonsignore will look to park in Tri Track Open Modified Series Victory Lane for the first time in his career on Wednesday, June 30, when the series returns to Massachusetts and Seekonk Speedway’s third-mile oval.

Driving the No. 00 Modified for Jimmy Paige Racing, Bonsignore will compete in the Speed51 Modified Madness, a 100-lap race worth $10,000 to the winner as part of the annual Open Wheel Wednesday.

In Bonsignore’s first two efforts driving for Paige this season, he finished fourth in the opener at Monadnock Speedway on May 1 — but failed to finish the second race at Star Speedway on May 22, due to an overheating issue. The two-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion is excited to return to Seekonk’s third-mile and chase the big check.

“I always seem to run well at Seekonk in the cars I have driven down there in the past,” Bonsignore said. “I love the facility and the track, and I’m excited to go back there after not going there at all last year. Jimmy Paige, Steve Lemay (crew chief), and the entire team have been working hard and we’ve been running well. We were a top-three car at Star, with just an issue we couldn’t control. We’re looking forward to working together again and continuing to build our relationship. We want to get that bad race behind us and try and have a good run at Seekonk and contend for the big $10,000 check.”

Practice for Tri Track teams will be one-hour, lasting from 3:45-4:45 p.m., while qualifying heat races will begin at 6:30 p.m., kicking off a full night of racing action. The Tri Track Open Modified Series will run heats, two consi races, and the 100-lap feature that will conclude the night. The 350 SMAC Supermodifieds and the NEMA Lites will also join the show. 

General admission grandstand tickets are $30 for adults, with children 6-12 years old set at $10. Any kids five and under can enter the grandstands for free.

  1. This is looking good.

    It’s gonna be HOT, HOT, HOT. 🥵

    Liz, where have you been? The Tour de France is running and now’s your chance to objectify lithe men in tight cycling shorts. 🚴

    This will be a tough race to predict a winner, it’s a loaded field and anything can happen. The Seekonk race that is.

  2. Jon McKennedy , in the #79 New LFR/ Troyer will win this one…If he enters it, By the way He just Won another Super Modified Race at Monadnock Speedway !! Oh that’s 6 SIX a Half Dozen WINS IN A ROW in that Super.!! Yes one 1 was at Seekonk !!!! The track is really wide and has a bump as you head into turn 3 , But other than that the Track is 72 feet wide and a great surface considering it’s AGE 1946 ,,, The track is fun to drive as long as you can rotate the corners, It’s a BEAR if your tight cuz your only gonna get tighter and tighter until you say hello to the outside wall …You can run the outside and there is bite of the outside of turn two you can make an outside pass on that corner if you take the line away from the inside car off the turns..Really looking froward to this SHOW , 350 super’s I haven’t seen much so I am hoping to see how they run too, Who knows Jon may get a ride in one of those considering His Winning Percentage at Seekonk continues to RISE…I hope they pack the CEMENT PALACE they deserve a HUGE CROWD after SUFFERING more than any track due to Covid Who , See you there, Buckle up the Money is FRESH and the big boy’s of Modifieds are Coming to grab their fair share !!!!! Can’t WAIT !!!!!

  3. Is there an entry list? If so, where can it be found?

  4. 46 cars on FB…..Just by the number of entries,this will tell you it isn’t a WMT show.Plus 350 Supers….

  5. Mudbus, thanks. I stay away from FB… no civility over there at all. 😉

  6. Matt Hirschman is entered. Do Tri-Track rules require valve stem caps?

  7. Forecast for Wednesday: A chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly between 8pm and 2am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 70. Southwest wind 6 to 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%.

  10. Well, Well, Belsito in a Modified, I know he got in one [ SK ] at Thompson, But Angelo certainly knows His way around the CONCRETE PALACE…… Pro Stock Champion ….. Very Interesting <<<>>>>>

  11. I agree suitcase. Belsito kind of stood out looking over the list. Also Doug Coby, I didnt think he typically runs outside the whelen tour much lately. Should be a great show……hope for good weather.

  12. Suitcase Jake,
    I seem to remember Seekonk being paved in the late 70’s when they moved the wall back. I remember John Rosati in the Tuck Hoffman 73 getting a flat tire and having to be towed back to the pits because DA. was losing his mind because he didn’t want the edge from the flat grooving the new pavement!

  13. So what’s the goal for Belsito? Knowing the track is one think but with that field of cars one has to be realistic. I should think a top 10 would be outstanding.
    Belsito in this race for the Seekonk home fans yet another sub plot in a race with so many. For we Stafford fans Frank L’Etoile, Second in points in the Stafford Streets quite a challenge considering the competition.

  14. ED J , You are correct, Wall was moved out and repaved, Yes if you rode a flat down on the rim Anthony was waiting for you in the TUNNEL the only Exit / Entrance with his finger in your chest or face .. RIP Anthony…. We used to complain that Our cars would overheat coming to a stop after the race, to let the next race out on the track , your could watch temperature climb from 220 to 230 to 240 and higher… It was a Blessing when they put in the entrance high in turn 3… cars could roll off unobstructed to their pits and the Engines could be shut down , then next race could roll off …

  15. Fast Eddie says

    Ed j and suitcase, thanks for the great history info on seekonk!! Cool stuff!

  16. Konkworks says

    Most don’t remember that the walls were moved out over two successive years. I think the backstretch was first.
    I still don’t understand how the track grew from 1/4 mile to 1/3 of a mile one year without any real change in configuration. The only way it could possibly be 1/3 of a mile is if you ran the outside wall all the way around. I think they did it to artificially inflate the speeds by 33%. Looking back at the last WMT race there, a 99.639 mph pole speed sounds much better than the real speed of 74.7 mph and an average race speed of 73.333 mph sounds much faster than 55 mph.

  17. Usually you can find when a track is repaved if you dig long and hard enough. I can’t find anything. Is it possible it hasn’t had a full repaving since 1980?
