One of the most highly-anticipated Tour-type Modified races of the season will be streamed worldwide Wednesday night, June 27. The annual Open Wheel Wednesday event for the Tri-Track Open Modified Series and NEMA Midgets at Seekonk Speedway (MA) will air via a live broadcast on Speed51.com.
Race fans will be able to watch qualifying action, consolation races and feature races by purchasing a pay-per-view video ticket for $24.99.
“Seekonk Speedway is excited to continue their broadcast partnership with the best short track source going,” said Seekonk Speedway Director of Business Development, Ed St. Germain. “Speed51.com offers great coverage and an awesome opportunity for those who can’t be here at the track to watch the race live.”
Open Wheel Wednesday is an event known for attracting a diverse field that includes some of the biggest names in Modified racing. The current entry list for the Tri-Track Open Modified Series $10,000-to-win main event includes the names of nearly 40 Modified drivers
“Big Money” Matt Hirschman enters the race as the defending winner, but will be challenged by the likes of Ryan Preece, Chase Dowling, Rowan Pennink, Ronnie Silk, Tommy Barrett, Woody Pitkat and more.
“This race has truly become one of the top five races of the year for Tour-type Modified fans from the Northeast and beyond,” said Speed51.com Editor Brandon Paul. “The race attracts big names from a variety of touring series such as the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Valenti Modified Racing Series, Race of Champions and more. There’s a reason the crowd is gigantic at this race every year, and that’s because it’s a can’t-miss race for Modified fans.”
In addition to broadcasting the Tri-Track Open Modified Series portion of the event, the live broadcast will also shine a spotlight on the 22nd Annual Boston Louie Memorial for the NEMA Midgets and NEMA Lites.
Speed51.com live video stream will be a one-camera broadcast with audio from the track’s public address system. Announcers Kevin Boucher, John Spence, Sr. and Pete Falconi will be on the call for the highly-anticipated event.
The video stream will feature a 100-mile blackout radius around the Seekonk, Massachusetts area.
