This is the first event of the short track season in New England. Eleven divisions will be featured in the 43rd running of this great season-opening tradition. It will be headlined by Thompsons 135th NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race more than any other host track. The Fan Appreciation Party, which has become a highly-anticipated event will be back for its fourth consecutive season. Timmy Brown will be back again to perform during the party.
The Saturday program will be comprised of practice and qualifying for ten of the eleven divisions. In addition, feature races for the NEMA Lites, North East Street Stock Tour, Lite Modifieds, Mr. Rooter ProTruck Series, and Vintage Outlaws will all be held. A new addition for this years event will be the addition of the Race of Champions, featuring our four NWAAS champions. They will face off in equally prepared cars from The Racing School. Bragging rights are on the line to determine who the champion of the champions will be.
Sunday will begin with the Fan Appreciation Party and Champions Banner Raising, followed by feature events for the Sunoco Modified, Late Model, Limited Sportsman, Mini Stock, Pro All Stars Series. The afternoon will culminate with the 150-lap championship race for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. Please note that, in an effort, to accommodate NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour travel, qualifying for the 150-lap affair will also happen on Sunday afternoon. This will be similar to the format that was piloted at last years Bud 150.
