One of the most competitive modified racing tours in New England is coming back in 2016 and the updated list of teams who have filed entries has been released.
Among the first 20 teams to fill out the paperwork is Matt Hirschman, the 2015 Tri Track champion. He scored the victory at Monadnock Speedway in June and went on to grab consistent finishes to eventually wrap up the championship at New London-Waterford Speedbowl in September.
Hirschman will return behind the wheel of the No. 59 for 2016 searching back-to-back championships. Joining Hirschman on the list is 2015 Seekonk winner Richard Savary, who has run consistently in the front during many races with the series before.
Other entered drivers include former series winner Chris Pastreyak and NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour stars Rowan Pennink, Max Zachem and Woody Pitkat. They are joined by Swansea, Massachusetts native Todd Annarummo, who finished second in the championship standings in 2015. To see the complete list of entered teams, fans can see below.
