Haunted Hundred To Showcase Championship Event For Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series At Seekonk

(Press release from the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series)

American-Canadian Tour Returns To Seekonk; INEX Legends Cars $2,000 To Win Special Also on Tap

Seekonk Speedway will roar to life for the final time in 2022 this weekend, as the Action Track of the East is set to host the championship event for the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series in the annual Haunted Hundred. On top of 100 laps for the ground-pounding Modifieds worth $6,000 to win, the American-Canadian Tour also returns to Seekonk for their penultimate race of the season, and the INEX Legends Cars join the card for a $2,000 to win, 30-lap race.

Set to chase his seventh career Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series championship, Matt Hirschman enters the race up by 27 points over Matt Swanson, with Chase Dowling third, 28 markers behind. Based on the Tri-Track points system, Hirschman has a good shot at locking up the crown, and a finish of 17th or better will cement it as his for another year.

Swanson and Dowling are the two mathematical contenders – not only to race him for the title – but also to compete for the win. Dowling is a former Seekonk winner (defending Haunted Hundred winner) and also has one victory in the 2022 season. Swanson hasn’t won on the Tri-Track circuit yet, but has top-10 finishes in four events this year.

Of the list of entered drivers – now jumping over 40 – multiple top names will be at the track on Saturday. Anthony Nocella, Ron Silk, Ronnie Williams, Woody Pitkat, Jake Johnson, Todd Szegedy, Matt Galko, Sam Rameau, Kyle Bonsignore, Les Hinckley, Chris Pasteryak, Austin Beers and Late Model standout Derek Gluchacki are among those entered.

The series traditional scuff session will be followed by heat races and necessary consi events to set the field for 100-laps in the season-finale. The total purse for the event will again rise over $40,000 – meaning the two Seekonk events combined this season will pay out over $85,000.

If the conclusion of the American-Canadian Tour race at the 2021 Haunted Hundred is any indication, fans will not want to miss their 100-lap race on Saturday. Last year, DJ Shaw and Ben Rowe battled down to the final corner to decide the win and the championship, with some beating and banging, and a thrilling finish. Even though this event won’t decide their 2022 title, it will still be a battle between Seekonk weekly Late Model regulars and ACT stars. On the ACT front, names like Shaw, Alexandre Tardiff, Gluchacki, Erick Sands and Cody Leblanc are at the front of their standings and all expected to be top contenders.

On the Seekonk front, names like Vinnie Arrenegado, Richie Murray, Ryan Flood, Jacob Burns, Connor Souza, Reese Bogue and others are expected to try and defend the home turf.

The $2,000 to win, 30-lap INEX Legends Cars race is drawing attention from across New England, and also from Seekonk local contenders. Seekonk champion Devin Deshaies should be joined by names like Josh Parsons, Mason Tessier, Isaiah Newcomb, Jake Silvia, Richie Helger Jr., Nicholaus Bulkeley and others. Qualifying lineups will be set by a blind draw on race morning for their extra cash special. 

Tickets for the Haunted Hundred are available in advance at SeekonkSpeedway.com, where fans can purchase today and skip the long lines on race day. Pit passes are also available in advance. Tickets are $30 for adults in general admission, with those from 6-12 just $10, and kids five and under free. Pit passes are $45 for just Saturday or $60 for a two-day pass.

Friday will be an optional practice session from 1-5 p.m., while pit gates open on Saturday at 8 a.m. and racing begins at 1:30 p.m.

  1. seekonk fan says

    weather lookin good. last year was a certified banger.

  2. Suitcase Jake says

    This race is Turning out to be a Classic on the schedule of the Modified Races you wanna be present for … Last year the parking lot was really full .The crowd was tremendous !!! cars from all over New England in the parking lot… with 3 divisions running the program runs quickly one after another.. Not a marathon show… Runs in the daylight hours…Hopefully they produce an entry list for Our Pick’ems ….

  3. Honestly this is one of my favorite races of the year. It has gone down a notch now that the pro stocks are off the card, Seekonk being the only track around here still running pro stocks weekly, you would think they would want to showcase the division for all the modified fans who pack their stands. I would have been less upset, if they ditched the pro stocks for a big street stock race. They are Seekonks best division and deserve to be highlighted. I will still go but I dont think it will be as good as it has been. Seeing those Seekonk cars battle the PASS guys was a pretty good show.

  4. Hoker Trucking says

    Spot on csg! I feel like you just read my mind!

  5. seekonk fan says

    Think it had something to do with the PASS schedule

  6. Fast Eddie says

    Agree with all of you. It will be a great show, but I’ll miss having the PASS race with it. I think they had a big race last week at Oxford Plains, and they also had a last minute race at Seekonk during the summer.

  7. I dont think the mods are being broadcast anywhere. Weather looks great for tomorrow. No excuses get out to the track.

  8. The event is being streamed on Racing America with regular subscription.

  9. Not all pro stocks the same says

    PASS and Seekonk pro stocks are not the same. PASS rules are for bump stops, a before and after race frame height rule, and open shock absorber options. Seekonk pro stocks are not allowed bump stops, have no frame height rule, and limit shocks to a single adjustable. There is quite a bit of work and expense to switch a Seekonk car over to PASS and be competitive, only a couple were doing it recently. Outside of Oxford and white mountain, PASS struggles to get 15 cars. Three top tier divisions without the back gate from lower division cars and crews would be a tuff nut to run this year.

  10. I know racing america has ACT but i didnt see them mention Tri track as being covered. They have been a little disingenuous or misleading with some of their announced schedule in the past. The next weekend they state ACT and PASS will be covered from Waterford which makes me think this week at Seekonk only ACT will be covered. The mods would be a major draw if they were covering it they would make it clear they were. For those reasons, I would be surprised if Racing America covers the Tri track race today, On a beautiful day like today it’s a chance I am unwilling to take. Besides its always better in person and this is the last local mod race that I know of.

  11. CSG,
    What I was told is that only the ACT would be broadcast today.
