MODIFIEDS CONFIRMING FOR WALL STADIUM’S
“TWIN 50’S” ON SATURDAY, MAY 8
Stadium promoter Jim Morton says that he is looking forward to hosting an
impressive field of Tour Type Modified stock cars when his third mile paved
oval hosts “Twin 50” lap main events for the Modifieds on Saturday night,
May 8. Plans call for grandstand seating to open at 4:00 p.m. that
afternoon, with qualifying beginning at 5:45 p.m. and feature racing set to
start at 6:45 p.m.
“The May 8 twin 50-lap races are going to be a great show,” Morton said. “I
am really looking forward to it. We are going to have a great field of
quality cars. I have been talking to the drivers personally and every driver
that has confirmed thus far has spoken directly to me.
“We have a great list of confirmed drivers right now and there are many more
that I have to speak to.”
Tim Arre of Toms River, who will be at the wheel of the Ralph Solhem No. 0,
is anxious to get back to the high banks as an illness has kept him from any
type of action thus far in 2010. He plans to return to action on May 8. Also
confirming his plans for the “Twin 50’s” is Howell’s Jamie Tomaino who will
be at the wheel of the Supreme Manufacturing No. 99 and former Wall Modified
champ Pete Brittain of Oakhurst in the Ling Racing No. 66.
Others who have confirmed to date include Long Island, NY favorite Tony
Ferrante, Jr. in his family owned No. 31, opening night Wall Modified winner
Anthony Sesely in his No. 16, Pennsylvania hot shoes Earl Paules in the No.
8 and John Markovic in the No. 95 and Flemington’s Andy Walko in his No. 27.
Morton says that he will have more confirmed entries soon.
In addition to the Tour Type Modifieds, the track’s Sportsman, Street Stock
and Legend Cars divisions will compete in 25-lap main events, while the
Flanagan Retail Development Factory Stocks will race in a 20-lapper. Pit
gates will open at 12:30 p.m. on May 8, with a paid practice session set
from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. The regular practice session will be up next,
while grandstand seating will open at 4:00 p.m. Qualifying is set for 5:45
p.m. and main event action is set for 6:45 p.m.
