Seekonk Speedway (MA) is excited to announce the addition of a new Tri-Track Open Modified Series race to be held on October 28, 2017.
The “Haunted Hundred” will be the fourth and final race in the 2017 Tri-Track series season. The rain date for this event will be Sunday October 29. The Race will feature a $6,000 first-place winner’s share of the $35,000 purse with great payouts throughout the entire field. The Haunted Hundred will count towards the Tri-Track point fund standings.
“We are grateful to the Venditti Family and Seekonk Speedway for hosting a second race this year,” said Wayne Darling, managing partner of TTOMS. “Seekonk has always been a great race track for the series. Fourteen years of $10,000 to win modified races has really put the track on the Big Race map in the racing world.
“As I said before…Tri Track has always been about the owners and the drivers. We committed to a four-race schedule and we plan to deliver that to those who support us.”
The four-race Tri-Track series opened at Seekonk Speedway on June 28 with Matt Hirschman picking up the $10,000 win. The next two races will be at Star Speedway in Epping, New Hampshire on Saturday July 29 and Wednesday August 23. The series will conclude for 2017 at Seekonk on Saturday October 28
The October “ Haunted Hundred “race falls at the end of the race season in New England.
Race Director Frank Sgambato stated “With the Thompson World Series, Lee’s Ocktoberfest and Staffords Fall Finale all in the books, all eyes and cars will be at Seekonk for one last run.”
The star-studded roster for the Tri-Track series includes the likes of NASCAR Modified Tour champions Ryan Preece, Ted Christopher and Ron Silk, other former Modified champions Matt Hirschman, Jon McKennedy, Rowan Pennink, and Chris Pasteryak. Perennial favorites who have also registered include Justin Bonsignore, Bobby Santos, Woody Pitkat, Eric Goodale, Todd Annarummo, Tommy Barrett, Anthony Nocella, Richard Savary and Andy Jankowiak.
