PASS Super Late Model Championship Also on the Line

 

Seekonk, Mass. (October 23, 2018): Ron Silk of Norwalk, CT, and defending series champion Matt Hirschman of Northampton, PA, are tied in the championship point standings heading into the final race of the 2018 season for the Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS). The champion will be crowned following the Haunted 100 for the tour-type Modifieds on Saturday afternoon.  All the Haunted happenings are set for Saturday, October 27 at Seekonk Speedway in Seekonk, MA.

 

In addition to the hotly contested 100-lap Modified main event, the ground-pounders will be joined by the Pro-All-Star Series (PASS) for a 150-lap Super Late Model feature event. The already stout schedule of short-track racing will also include a 50-lap Late Model race.

 

In TTOMS action, Chase Dowling of Roxbury, CT is only 20 points behind the lead duo of Silk and Hirschman and is very much in contention for the title. It is a tight point battle inside the top-five; all have a mathematical chance to win.  Tommy Barrett and Woody Pitkat are tied for third with 262 points apiece while Russ Hersey and Matt Galko are each tied with 254 points apiece.

 

Only 36 points separate the top-seven TTOMS drivers heading into the final race at Seekonk. The cumulative point fund to be distributed by TTOMS is $15,000 with $3,000 being awarded to the series champion.

 

Over 35 cars are expected to attempt to qualify for the event including TTOMS event winners Todd Patnode, Tour regulars Matt Swanson, in the legendary Ole Blue, Chris Pasteryak, and Calvin Carroll along with hometown favorites Todd Annarummo and Colbey Fournier. Other notables include Anthony Nocella, Richard Savary, Les Hinckley, Zane Zeiner, Sammy Rameau and a rejuvenated Andy Jankowiak. It is believed that the Ed Harvey Racing team will make the haul to Seekonk as well.  While eligible for the lucrative point fund, Pitkat is not expected to compete at Seekonk.

 

A championship is also on the line for the PASS Northern SLM Tour on Saturday. Ben Rowe from Turner, ME, Travis Benjamin of Belfast, ME, Derek Griffith of Hudson, NH, Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, NH, Nick Sweet from Barre, VT, Reid Lanpher of Manchester, ME, DJ Shaw of Center Conway, NH and Ray Christian III of Uncasville, CT, are among the notables set to do battle in the Pro All Star Series finale. A regular with the Tri-Track Mods, Derek Ramstrom of Worcester, MA, will return to his roots racing the full-fendered family owned #35 in PASS competition.

 

The $1,500 winner’s share will draw a strong field of competitors for the 50 lap Late Model event presented by Propane Plus.

 

Gates open at 11am with racing starting at 1pm on Saturday, October 27. General admission is $27. Children under 12 are admitted free.

 

Qualifying will get underway at 1:00pm with 15-lap heat races for the PASS Super Late Models, 12-lap heat races for the Late Models and 15-lap heats for the Modifieds. Consolation events will be held if necessary. Feature events will be immediately following qualifying action. The schedule may be subject to change. The rain date is Sunday, October 28.

LUCRATIVE LATE MODEL PURSE ASSURES STRONG SUPPORT OF TRI TRACK  HALLOWEEN WEEKEND EVENT AT SEEKONK

LUCRATIVE LATE MODEL PURSE ASSURES STRONG SUPPORT OF TRI TRACK HALLOWEEN WEEKEND EVENT AT SEEKONK

 

Propane Plus Signs on as LM Race Sponsor

 

Seekonk, Mass.(September 18, 2018): When the Tri-Track Open Modified Series heads to Seekonk Speedway for the Haunted 100, not only will they be joined by the full-fendered ‘big guns’ of the Pro All Star Series but also a strong field of Late Models.  One of the highest paying Late Model purses of the season will see local favorites from Seekonk’s own Late Model division contend with invaders from throughout the northeast.

 

“With this purse and the consistency of the ACT rules, this should be one of the strongest fields for a Late Model race in recent years,” said Series Managing Partner, Wayne Darling. “And, if last year’s race is any indication, this year’s 50 lapper for the Late Models is only going to be bigger and better.”

 

The Late Model rules for the event will be the same as those in effect for Seekonk’s own prestigious D. Anthony Venditi Fall Classic and can be found on the track’s website seekonkspeedway.com. All ACT legal Late Models are welcome.

 

“Thanks in part to newly added sponsorship by Propane Plus, the winner of the Late Model race will take home $1,500,” added Darling.

 

Longtime supporters of New England racing, Propane Plus is a local, family-owned business that has earned a reputation for outstanding service. With combined storage facilities of 180,000 gallons of propane on hand, Propane Plus provides reasonable pricing and trusted service.

 

Week-in and week-out, the Late Model division is one of the most hotly contested divisions at Seekonk Speedway. Fans of the Haunted Happenings at the Speedway on October 27 should expect much of the same. Seekonk regulars already registered include multi-time track champion Gerry Degasparre, up-and-coming drivers Ryan Kuhn, Bobby Tripp, Chase Belcher, Danny Johnson, as well as veteran campaigner Manny Dias. Follow Tri-Track Open Modified Series on social media for regular updates to divisional entry lists.
