MODIFIED TOUR ENTRY LIST
CONTINUES TO GROW FOR ICEBREAKER

Entries from the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race teams continue to arrive at the Thompson International Speedway for Icebreaker 2012. The early entries include a host of the Tourís most popular drivers and many more are expected before the April 14th & 15th Icebreaker dates.

Leading the list of race teams entered for the Icebreaker is defending WMT champion, Ron Silk. Silk will once again wheel the potent # 6 T.S. Haulers, Inc. NASCAR Modified owned by Ed Partridge. The team that challenged Silk for the title, right down to the closing laps of the 2011WMT season at Thompson, was the Todd Szegedy driven # 2 car. Szegedy is among the early entries for the Icebreaker as well.

Other race teams that have filed entry forms include Doug Coby, Mike Stefanik, Rowan Pennink, Eric Beers, Ryan Preece, Keith Rocco, Bobby Santos III and many more. Several other teams that are expected are Donny Lia, Justin Bonsignore, Woody Pitkat and a host of others.

Last yearís Icebreaker winner, Ted Christopher, is expected to try to make it two in a row. His victory last year was highlighted by the fact that early in the event he was down two laps to the leaders. Christopher made an incredible dash to not only make up those lost laps but to end up in Icebreaker victory lane.

Joining the Whelen Modified Tour will be Thompsonís NASCAR Whelen All-American ďSuper 6Ē weekly divisions. The competition in these divisions is both fierce and fast. Many of New Englandís very best drivers compete in these divisions throughout the season and offer edge-of-the-seat excitement for race fans. Thompson Intíl Speedway is southern New Englandís largest and fastest race track.

Practice and qualifying for the Icebreaker will be held on Saturday, April 14th. WMT cars will qualify through time trials and All-American series divisions will compete in qualifying races. Feature event races will begin at 12:30 PM on Sunday, April 15th with the NASCAR Whelen Modified tour 150-lap main slated to take the green flag around 3:30 PM.

Tickets for this outstanding season opener are available by calling the Thompson Speedway track office. (860-923-2280) The complete weekend schedule of events is available on the trackís web page www.thompsonspeedway.com.
