FELTON NAMED HEAD OF TECH FOR TRI-TRACK OPEN MODIFIED SERIES FOR 2019


Seekonk, Mass. (February 18, 2019): Management of the Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) recently named Greg Felton of Belchertown, MA, as the Series Head of Race Tech. Felton has spent decades building and maintaining race winning racecars; winning countless championships along the way. He has served as a race official in recent years in Modified racing competition.

“We are really excited to have Greg on board,” said Ed Bennett, the Series’ newest managing partner. “He shares our vision of getting back to basics to provide racers with a fair, straightforward and competitive environment.  With Greg’s help the Tri-Track Series will provide the best possible races and continue to build our fan base.”  

Felton assumes a role most recently held by Jeff Zuidema, who will now serve as a special consultant to Norm Wrenn, Jr. at Monadnock Speedway. Wrenn officially took ownership of the Speedway on December 13, 2018.

The Tri-Track Series will return to competition at Monadnock Speedway on Saturday, September 14. 

“I truly believe in the TTOMS and everything Dick [Williams], Jim [Schaefer], Wayne [Darling], and the entire group have built with that series,” said Zuidema. “To think that a racing series in this day and age would give 100% of the monies back to the racer is truly amazing. I will continue to help and support, in any way, the best touring series in New England.”

While new faces will be added to the officiating staff under Felton, the team of technical inspectors will remain largely unchanged for the 2019 season.  

“I have been able to interact with the Series as a competitor,” said Felton, “now I look forward to working alongside these people that I have grown to respect. And, hopefully earn the respect of the competitors who have shown such loyalty to the Tri-Track Series.” 

With its most robust schedule to date, the 2019 TTOMS series will feature six races including dates at Claremont, Seekonk, Oxford Plains, Star and Monadnock Speedways. Race teams looking to compete in the six-race schedule with eligibility for the point fund and bonus plan must preregister for the 2019 season by April 1, 2019. Entries will be accepted via secure online registration or by mail.

The preregistration fee of $450 entitles teams to a stake in the point fund as well as eligibility for the bonus plan. Car owners filing full preregistration will also receive one complimentary pit pass for each race on the schedule. Individual race registration is also available for $150 each.

Teams can register for the 2019 TTOMS season by visiting tritrackmods.com/registration. Checks made payable to Tri Track Enterprise LLC can also be mailed to Jim Schaefer, 545 Sweezy Ave., Riverhead, NY 11901.

TTOMS REINFORCES SERIES MANAGEMENT FOR 2019

TTOMS REINFORCES SERIES MANAGEMENT FOR 2019


Seekonk, Mass. (January 27, 2019): The Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) recently announced the addition of longtime car owner Ed Bennett to the management team. With a solid foundation that includes founders Dick Williams and Jim Schaefer, Wayne Darling and a host of respected officials, Bennett adds another level of management to ensure that the Series remains strong in 2019 and beyond. 

In his new role, Bennett will concentrate on the operational side of the series. He will take over the race day responsibilities previously handled by Darling, who seeks to lessen his daily role.

“I want everyone, whether it’s a promoter, owner, driver or fan, to experience a nice smooth show,” said Bennett. “The Series is perfectly capable of doing that. I’m just here to help make that happen for all six races this season.”

With its most robust schedule to date, the 2019 TTOMS series will feature six races. The 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 the Wrenn Family’s Monadnock on September 14. The 2019 season will conclude with the Haunted Hundred at Seekonk on October 26.

Bennett, a second-generation car owner, owned Modifieds for many years. He followed in the footsteps of his father, who owned Midgets. 

The addition of Bennett to the TTOMS family comes as Mark Pennink steps way. Pennink joined the Series as part of the new ownership group that included Darling. 

“It truly has been a pleasure working with Wayne, Jim, Dick and everyone,” said Pennink.

As racing was always a family affair for Pennink, the recent retirement of his son Rowan undoubtedly lessened the appeal of all the traveling. 

“The distance from Philadelphia makes attending the races a rather big chore,” said Pennink. “But I am happy to be continuing my support of the series; just now as a sponsor.” 

Preregistration for the 2019 TTOMS season is available by visiting tritrackmods.com/registration. Checks made payable to Tri Track Enterprise LLC may also be mailed to Jim Schaefer, 545 Sweezy Ave., Riverhead, NY 11901.

“During the 2019 season all competitors will vie for over quarter of a million dollars in purse money,” added Bennett. “We are going to make sure that not only is competing in this series lucrative but also fun and fair.”

SPECIAL SPONSORSHIP ANNOUNCED FOR TTOMS FOR 2019

SPECIAL SPONSORSHIP ANNOUNCED FOR TTOMS FOR 2019

Miller Family & TTOMS to Honor Son’s Legacy

Seekonk, Mass. (December 30, 2018): The Don Miller Family has announced it will join forces with the Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) as a sponsor of the Series’ 2019 appearances at Claremont and Monadnock Speedways.  In honor of their late son, former Modified champion, Ricky Miller, the Miller family will cover pit entry fees for all Modified drivers pre-registered for the two events. 

TTOMS will visit Claremont Speedway on May 25 and Monadnock Speedway on September 14 as part of its six-race schedule. This cost-saving measure provided by the Miller Family will further help defray costs for teams participating in the Series. For several years, the Tri-Track Series has waived pit admission for all pre-registered car owners. 

“True to their longtime support of auto racing, everyone benefits from this sponsorship,” said TTOMS founding partner, Dick Williams. “We are thrilled with this partnership and what it brings to our Series and so proud to have the Miller family on board.”

In tribute of Ricky’s car number, the Millers will also purchase a set of Hoosier Tires for the twelfth-place qualifier and twelfth- place finisher on each of these two race dates. 

Ricky, who was a Modified standout at Claremont Speedway, died tragically at the age of 34 in 2004. He was one of the most likeable racers to have competed. Always a colorful and personable competitor, he may be best known for his 1999 Riverside Park Speedway championship- the final Modified champion of the now defunct Speedway. 

Additionally, Ricky will forever stand in history as the winner of the final NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race ever held at the famed Riverside Park Speedway in Agawam, MA. Ricky is remembered not only as an accomplished racer but also as an integral part of the legendary Modified Team for the late Mario Fiore, where he served as crew chief.

The Miller family has a long history at Claremont Speedway. Don Miller,” The Golden Jet” was a multi-time track champion and is considered one of Claremont’s modified heroes.

Ricky began his racing career at the Claremont, NH, oval in the Street Stocks before moving to the Pro Stocks and ultimately the Modifieds. Miller raced his final race at Claremont before retiring from the sport.

During the 2019 season, in addition to Claremont and Monadnock, TTOMS will visit Seekonk Speedway (Jun 26 & Oct 26), Star Speedway (Jul 27) and Oxford Plains Speedway (Aug 23). Over the course of the six-event schedule, competitors will vie for over quarter of a million dollars in purse money. 

Pre-registration for teams looking to compete in the six-race schedule with eligibility for the point fund and bonus plan will be open in the coming weeks and will be available online at tritrackmods.com.
