Seekonk, Mass. (April 8, 2019): With pre-registration having closed on April 1, the roster for the upcoming season for the 2019 Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) season is no joke. A strong roster of veterans and rising talent, totaling 33, will once again provide fans of the series with a season’s worth of racing excitement. A handful of other teams have registered for select events during 2019.
“We are grateful once again for the support of such amazing teams,” said Series founding partner Jim Schaefer. “The list of talented drivers that come from all over the northeast helps to make our series one of the most exciting. I truly can’t wait for the first race at Claremont.”
The list of teams scheduled to compete is highlighted by a pair of drivers, Matt Hirschman and Ron Silk, who will undoubtedly duke it out for the entire season for wins and the coveted championship. Last year’s Star Speedway winner Todd Patnode is slated to make all six starts and Mike Willis, Jr. will be on hand to defend his Claremont 100 victory.
With yet another year of Modified competition under his belt young Matthew Swanson is sure to be another contender for wins in 2019. The likes of Woody Pitkat, Les Hinckley, Russ Hersey, Richard Savary, and the always entertaining Tommy Barrett can never be counted out.
Two relative newcomers to the Series, Anthony Sesely and Ronnie Williams, will add excitement all season long as they both currently plan on competing in all six races. Sesely is a PA modified standout and former TQ indoor champion. Williams will pilot the always ultra-competition entry for owner Gary Casella.
Series officials are also anticipating an exciting announcement regarding the driver of Geary Rinehimer’s entry.
Kirk Alexander, Brad Babb, CJ Bolton, Calvin Carroll, Andrew Charron, Dana DiMatteo, Colbey Fournier, Matthew Galko, Jeff Gallup, Mike Holdridge, Dylan Izzo, Andy Jankowiak, Jon Kievman, Carl Medeiros Jr., John Montesanto, Brian Robie, Geoff Rollins, Les Rose, Dana Smith, Billy Swartz and Kurt Vigeant have also filed full-season entries.
The TTOMS season kicks-off with the second annual Claremont 100 at Claremont Speedway on May 25, followed by long-established events like Open Wheel Wednesday at Seekonk Speedway on June 26 and the SBM 125 at Star Speedway on July 27. New to the schedule includes the Oxford 100 at Oxford Plains Speedway on August 24 as part of the prestigious Oxford 250 weekend plus a trip to Monadnock on September 14. The 2019 season will conclude with the Haunted Hundred at Seekonk on October 26.
