Rookies, champions, youth and experience make up the current entry list for the season-opening NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Icebreaker event at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on April 12.  Updated today by NASCAR, the entry list for the prestigious race has now reached 36 drivers, the largest field for the event since 2010 when 37 drivers took the green flag.

Veterans Jamie Tomaino, Ted Christopher and Todd Szegedy will be joined by young talents such as Troy Talman, Chase Dowling and Jeff Goodale making the field one of the most diverse NWMT rosters in recent memory.
