The Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series hosts the fourth of its six scheduled 2023 events Saturday, August 12 at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl. With the series race season just past the halfway point, drivers are looking forward to a trip to ‘The ‘Bowl ‘to compete in the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series Belltown Motors/Fowler’s Auto Wrecking 100.
With the $10,000 winner’s purse up for grabs – plus Doug Dunleavy’s Gamblers Challenge that will add an additional $5,0000 or more in estimated winnings to the MMTTS Belltown Motors/Fowler’s Auto Wrecking 100 – plan on heading to Waterford, CT on Saturday and join the MMTTS teams at The New London-Waterford Speedbowl. General admission gates open at 2 PM – just in time to watch MMTTS practice in action.
Going into Saturday’s race, Matt Swanson is the series points leader (with his Seekonk Speedway win breaking a points tie). Woody Pitkat is still looking for his first 2023 MMTS victory while ranked second in points.
With a win in the books at Star Speedway, the Jake Johnson No. MA15 modified team is looking for their second series win of the season. But will the young Johnson hold off a field of anxious drivers looking for a win? Currently third in points, will Matt Hirschman score his first MMTTS win of the season? Or will the hard-charging Thunder Road winner Ronnie Williams get number two? Is it time for Chris Pasteryak to get his first 2023 victory?
Last year’s New London-Waterford Speedbowl MMTTS race winner, Dana DiMatteo is also ready to defend his 2022 win at New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

“David Monaco of Monaco Ford and Pete Rappoccio from SignPro are super awesome people. The whole series is doing such a great job. Ed, Renee, Wayne, and everybody involved in the series are doing a great job. They know what they are doing and they do it well!”
“I am excited to get down to Waterford Speedbowl with the Monoco Modified Tri-Track Series. This will be my first time in an open car there so it will be interesting to see what happens.”
“There is a lot of good competition there. It will be interesting to see if there are two lanes of racing or one. I am excited to get another race in. And I am hoping for another packed house. “
“I am super excited about the Waterford race. I have a really good car going in. And I think with the testing that we are going to get, it will be valuable time in the car. I think that we will be in really good shape. I have to get the car to last a little bit longer.”
“So we should be in really good shape going to Waterford. It is one of my favorite tracks that the series goes to. It has good competitive racing in a good competitive series. I am really looking forward to it.”
