RIVERHEAD, NY- The New England, “Tri-Track Open Modified Series”, consisting of Tour-Type Open Modified events at the Lee (N.H.) USA Speedway, Star (N.H.) Speedway and Seekonk (MA.) Speedway for the 2014 season, today added a $10,000 point fund for the three races thanks to a new sponsorship package from Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists of Quincy, Mass.
Contact Alloy Wheel Repair of Quincy for all of your specialized automotive and trucking wheel repair needs and more. The $10,000 total is somewhat conditional, but also a virtual certainty, based on added contributions from series organizer James Schaefer, The Racing Guys, t-shirt sales, and portions of driver entry fee money donated from Seekonk Speedway management.
This added payoff not only rewards race teams who support all three events, which will each have cash purse payout’s exceeding $35,000 but it also adds prestige and a bonus money payout to the driver who is able to become the first ever, “Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists Tri-Track Open Modified Series Point Fund Champion.”
The point fund money will pay up to a maximum of 20 positions. Only race teams who attempt to qualify in ALL THREE events will be eligible for this bonus money. Points will be awarded on a downward scale of 24 points to the winner and one point for 24th place. Non-qualifiers will also earn one point and be considered as top 20 entrants.
The champion will earn a $1,500 bonus following the July 23rd $10,000 to win Seekonk Open Wheel Wednesday 100-lap finale. The series’ first event is at Lee on Sunday afternoon, May 11, and the annual SBM 125 IV will serve as the middle race for the series on Saturday night, June 14. Both of those events will pay a minimum of $5,000 to win.
The balance of the 20 position payoff will be paid as follows: 2nd- $1,000, 3rd- $800, 4th- $700, 5th- $600, 6th- $500, 7th- $475, 8th- $450, 9th- $425, 10th- $400, 11th- $375, 12th- $350, 13th- $325, 14th to 20th- $300. If fewer than 20 teams compete in all three races a determination will be made at that time how to distribute the remaining money to race teams.
Mark your calendars now for these three must see events of the 2014 race season, pitting the best of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, against the best from the Valenti Modified Racing Series, the Race of Champions Tour, and “Outlaw” Modified drivers from across the east coast.
