On Wednesday afternoon, Tour-Type Modified teams from across the Northeast and beyond will make their way to Seekonk Speedway (MA) for one of the biggest Modified events of the 2014 season. $10,000 will be on the line for the winner of Wednesday night's 100-lap Open Wheel Wednesday event and the big payouts won't end there.
$5,500 will be distributed to teams in the B-Main feature alone, with $1,000 going to the winner. Additional bonuses for laps lead, longest distance traveled, and more will also be distributed making this one of the richest Modified events in the country.
As of Tuesday afternoon at 4pm ET, 45 teams had already filed entries for this prestigious event held at Massachusetts' only asphalt oval. Of those 45 teams, drivers from the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Valenti Modified Racing Series, RoC Asphalt Modifieds, Riverhead Raceway, and beyond have declared their intentions to enter Wednesday's event.
You can find a full list of teams entered below. Speed51.com will have a more up to date entry list tomorrow afternoon in our Trackside Now coverage from Seekonk Speedway.
