   The final points races at Dunn Tire Raceway Park in Lancaster to decide the track championships for the McGard Modifieds and the Lorigo Insurance SST Sportsman were scheduled to take place last Saturday night, September 6. But rain showers blanketed the track in the morning, and with more showers forecast for the remainder of the day DTRP track officials decided to call off the event. The makeup date has yet to be announced. With our driver, Erick Rudolph of Ransomville, atop the point standings in both divisions, the DeLange Racing team eagerly awaits the announcement, now scheduled to be released on Tuesday night, September 9.
   This weekend the DeLange Racing team rejoins the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour for their lone visit in 2008 to the one-mile oval at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire. This event is traditionally the highlight of the Whelen Tour schedule, run in conjunction with events for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the NASCAR Camping World East Series. The DeLange team is anxious to test themselves on the biggest stage for NASCAR Modified racing.
   "This event is annually the premier Modified race on the Whelen Modified Tour schedule," says team owner Dave DeLange of Lockport. "The focus of the racing world will be centered on Loudon, New Hampshire this coming weekend. It has been a dream of mine since I became a Modified car owner to compete on the big stage and I'm very excited about making our first-ever trip to race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It will be a weekend to remember as we face this challenge. I'm confident that we will put forth a strong effort and that Erick will continue to surprise the NASCAR world with his ability to race the Original Pizza Logs/PrimeTyme Motorsports/Brigham Concrete Modified at the highest level. It will definitely be a weekend to remember for our team."
   Practice for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour cars will begin on Thursday, September 11 at 11:15am with three practice sessions scheduled. Following those sessions, qualifying for the New England 100 will commence at 4:40 pm. Friday will be an off-day for the Modifieds. The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour New England 100 is scheduled to take the green flag at 1:00 pm on Saturday, September 13.
