DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR formally unveiled today a commemorative 30th anniversary season logo for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. The new logo will become the official mark of the tour for the 2015 season.
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour 30th anniversary logo will be used in all facets related to the tour in 2015. The specially-designed logo consists of the tour’s unique base design with the famed modified car with the addition of a footer block that reads "30th Anniversary."
NASCAR began sanctioning races in 1948 with the modified division. While the open-wheeled race cars have been around longer than any other division in NASCAR, the present-day NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour was formed as a regional touring series in 1985. Connecticut-based Whelen Engineering has been the tour’s entitlement sponsor since 2005.
Launched today in conjunction with the unveiling of the anniversary logo is a 30-day countdown to the season-opening event with a daily milestone event from the first 30 seasons of the Whelen Modified Tour. The historical markers will be shared on NASCAR’s official regional touring series Twitter account, @NASCARHomeTrack, utilizing the hashtag #NWMT30. Fans are encouraged to share their own memories throughout the countdown by utilizing the hashtag.
The 30th anniversary season will commence at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park – which is celebrating its 75th season of competition in 2015 – with the Icebreaker 150 on April 12.
