The Valenti Modified Racing Series unveiled its 17-race tentative schedule for 2015 this past weekend during their 2014 season-ending banquet in Manchester, New Hampshire. The schedule is full of highlights and surprises, but also some uncertainty.
The series plans to open its season in Connecticut at the Waterford Speedbowl, but that is uncertain due to the ongoing financial battle between the track’s prospective owner and former investors. There are plans for three races total at the Connecticut shoreline oval in 2015 as of now. Should the Waterford deal not be completed in time, the series will open its 2015 campaign on the high banks of Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, NH on April 18.
Two big surprises on the 2015 schedule include trips to Vermont and Maine at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in July and Oxford Plains Speedway in August. Another surprise is that the series will head to the fast 5/8-mile oval of Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park just once. The lone event will be the Saturday headliner of World Series of Speedway Racing at TSMP. The race is a 50-lap event, 25 laps shorter than last year.
