Those drivers include Jacob Dore, Les Hinckley, Rob Goodenough, Todd Annarummo, Steve Masse, Jack Bateman, Rowan Pennink, Dwight Jarvis, Chris Pasteryak, Eric Goodale, Jimmy Dolan, Jimmy Kuhn, Jon McKennedy, and Louie Mechalides.

The mix of Stafford and Modified Racing Series feature winners means that 29 out of the 40 drivers that are expected to try to qualify for the Shark Cycle 100 know how to find their way into victory lane. There are several drivers with championship pedigree on their racing resumes. Christopher, Coby, Rocco, Stefanik, and Perry have all won track championships at Stafford with Christopher and Stefanik also having Whelen Modified Tour championships to their credit.

Behind Jarvis sits Rowan Pennink, Steve Masse, Ken Barry and Todd Annarummo, the winners of the past 4 Modified Racing Series events.

Everything adds up to a night of phenomenal modified competition as 40 cars will vie for 28 starting positions.
