(Thompson, CT) – On Wednesday, August 26, the Sunoco Modifieds will compete in their annual 20/20 Sprint race as part of Whelen Night, presented by King Cadillac GMC at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (TSMP). The event will see teams compete in two 20-lap points races, followed by a 10-lap sprint to determine the overall purse for the event, with the winning driver taking home $1,800.
There is even more money on the line for Sunoco Modified teams on Wednesday night with two extra bonuses to be earned. Waddell Communications, the Official Radio provider for TSMP, will be offering the “Perfect Challenge” bonus which will give $500 cash to a driver should he or she win all three races of the night.
Also up in the air will be a $500 bounty provided by TSMP. Following the completion of the second segment, the overall Sunoco Modified leader will be given the opportunity to take advantage of the bounty, by forfeiting his/her starting position and starting in the rear for a cash prize, should he or she emerge the overall winner following the 10-lap sprint.
Whelen Night will also feature TSMP’s three other NASCAR Whelen-All American Series, including the Late Models, Xtramart Limited Sportsman, and Mini Stocks, as well as the Vintage Outlaw modifieds.
