With two races remaining in the 2022 season for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, thoughts of what the 2023 schedule will look like are beginning to cross the minds of many around the series. 

It can be confirmed that one of the big events annually on the schedule will be returning next year. 

New Hampshire Motor Speedway general manager and executive vice president David McGrath confirmed to RaceDayCT that the Whelen Modified Tour will once again be part of the track’s NASCAR Cup Series weekend schedule for July 15-16, 2023.

“They’re coming back, I’m 100 percent sure they’ll be back,” McGrath said. “It wouldn’t be a July race weekend without them.”

The series will once again be a part of the race weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway that will also include the Cup Series Crayon 300 and the NASCAR Xfinity Series. 

“We’re still working out some details on things” McGrath said. “But [the Whelen Modified Tour is] a big part of our weekend. They’re a fan favorite. We know that it’s popular with our fanbase and a big part of their weekend here.” 

The Whelen Modified Tour will be running the division’s 75th event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 2023. The division made its debut on the 1.058-mile Loudon, N.H. oval on Sept. 2, 1990. Anthony Nocella won the most previous series event this past July.

    The are the best of the ” hometown racers” on a big track. Build more garage space for them so they don’t get treated like the ugly stepchildren of Nascar!
