Souza Media: Tri Track Open Modified Series officials announced on Wednesday the fifth date set for the 2022 season. The series will return to the high-banks of Monadnock Speedway on Saturday, April 30, as part of Monadnock’s opening weekend in New Hampshire. The track is a staple on the Tri Track schedule — with two events hosted at the track during the 2021 season.
The April date for next season will be a special $10,000 to win show.
“We’re excited to head back to Monadnock, especially for such a marquee event with a big prize on the line,” Wayne Darling, Managing Partner of the Tri Track Open Modified Series, said. “Monadnock has been on our schedule for many years and we love working with their staff to showcase some of the best racing, and the best Modified talent, in the area.”
This year, in the Wonder Casino 100 in May, Sam Rameau opened the season with a win at his home track, while Chase Dowling scored the victory in the 100-lap race in August. The track produces some of the best side-by-side racing the New England region offers for Modifieds.
“We’re very excited for this event,” Michelle Cloutier, General Manager of Monadnock Speedway, said. “This is becoming a tradition here at Monadnock — to have a two-day show to open the season, with the Tri Track Open Modified Series headlining the Saturday show. The fans love having the Modifieds here and everyone will be looking forward to it.”
Monadnock joins three other tracks as confirmed battlegrounds for 2022 Tri Track events. The series will return to Star Speedway for the SBM classic on July 23, along with the two traditional stops at Seekonk Speedway for the $10,000 to win Open Wheel Wednesday on June 29, and the Haunted Hundred on October 22. Tri Track will also make an inaugural stop at Thunder Road Speedbowl in Vermont as part of Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 29. Additional races would be announced in the coming weeks.
