Whelen Modified Tour Phoenix Communications 150 At Thompson Postponed To Thursday

THOMPSON – With a forecast calling for showers for much of the day and into the evening, NASCAR and Thompson Speedway operators made the call Tuesday evening to postpone Wednesday’s Whelen Modified Tour Phoenix Communications 150 to Thursday. 

The racing card and schedule will remain the same as was scheduled for Wednesday. 

“No weather-demanded change in schedule is made lightly,” said ACT managing partner Cris Michaud. “With the rain they are calling for tomorrow, both Tom [Mayberry] and I felt it best to play it safe and push everything to Friday, save these teams a night’s stay at a hotel and another missed day from work.”

The Phoenix Communications 150 marks the first Whelen Modified Tour event at Thompson since October 2020. 

The full Wednesday schedule, including the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Phoenix Communications 150, the final round of the SK Lite Double Down Showdown, ACT-type Late Models and Limited Sportsman will run on Thursday, August 18 with Qualifying set to begin at 5:30pm. Times and prices will remain the same.

Alongside the Touring Modified stars will be the championship event for the SK Lite Double Down Showdown along with feature action for the local ACT-type Late Models and Limited Sportsman. Pit Gates open at 1:00pm with Grandstands opening at 3:00pm. Post Time is set for 5:30pm with NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Time Trials beginning at 6:20pm and the Phoenix Communications 150 to start at 8:00pm. General Admission is set at $40 for adults, $15 for kids 6-12 and kids 5 and under are free!

    Yesterday afternoon today’s weather was looking decent untill early evening. Rain% went from 15 to 55%. Race postponed last night, and todays weather went back to a 15% chance of rain. Does Mother Nature hang out with Murphy and his Laws? SHEESH!! 🙂
