THOMPSON, CT – OTB Promotions and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (TSMP) have announced the addition of four Late Model practice sessions to the Saturday schedule of the Stock Car Road Race Challenge on September 11th and 12th. Though they will not be participating in competitive laps, the sessions will give Late Model teams an ideal opportunity to test car set-up and driving techniques on the newly re-opened 1.7 mile road course at TSMP.

 

Multi-time Late Model champion, Rick Gentes, will be among several other Late Model teams taking advantage of the practice sessions. “I don’t have any experience with this kind of racing, but my chassis builder has a good idea of how to set up the car for the road course.” Gentes stated. “If anything it will be more me than the car that needs to adapt to driving on the road course.”

 

The Late Models will be joining the North East Mini Stock Tour, North East Street Stock Tour, Mr. Rooter New England Truck Series, and the TSMP Mini Stocks for the 2-day event. The Stock Car Road Race Challenge will see the first competitive stock car laps on the road course, since it re-opened last year, and is being looked forward to by teams and spectators alike.
