Many of the Northeast’s top Modified and Super Late Model racers will convene at Seekonk Speedway this Saturday, October 27 for the second running of the Haunted Hundred. Race fans unable to make the trip to “The Cement Palace” in Seekonk, Massachusetts will be able to watch all of the action via a live pay-per-view broadcast on Speed51.com.
After a successful and thrilling inaugural event featuring the Tri-Track Open Modified Series in 2017, the Haunted Hundred returns in 2018 and will serve as one final hoorah for racing fans in the Northeast. Only this year, the event will be bigger and better with the addition of the PASS North championship race to the schedule.
“We’re very excited to team up with the great folks at Seekonk Speedway to once again bring this event to those who are unable to make it to Seekonk,” said Speed51.com Editor, Brandon Paul. “Last year’s Modified race was a thriller, and we should expect to see that same type of excitement again this year. Add in the fastest full-bodied stock cars in New England and you have a can’t-miss event for race fans everywhere.”
With a beefy $6,000 check awaiting the winner of the Modified portion of the event, the race has once again attracted big names from throughout the Northeast. Two of those drivers — Matt Hirschman and Ron Silk — enter the final race of the Tri-Track Open Modified Series season tied atop the series point standings. They’ll be joined by the likes of Anthony Nocella, Matt Swanson, Tommy Barrett and Richard Savary to create a star-studded field of drivers.
Fans of full-bodied stock cars will also have plenty to be excited about on Saturday afternoon as the PASS North Super Late Models will crown their 2018 champion. DJ Shaw leads defending series champion Travis Benjamin by 26 points entering the season finale. They will be joined by a talented field that will include recent DAV Fall Classic winner Wayne Helliwell Jr., U.S. Pro Stock/Super Late Model National Championship winner Reid Lanpher and multi-time PASS winner Derek Griffith.
There will also be a 50-lap, $1,000-to-win Late Model race that will be streamed live on Speed51.com as part of the pay-per-view broadcast.
The live video stream on Speed51.com will be a one-camera broadcast with audio from the track’s public address system. The broadcast will begin at approximately 1 p.m. ET with PASS North qualifying heats.
Race fans who cannot make it to Seekonk but wish to watch the fall spectacular can do so for just $19.99. Annual subscribers to the Speed51 Network will receive 10% off the purchase of a live pay-per-view video ticket.
The video stream will feature a 100-mile blackout radius around the Seekonk, Massachusetts area.
