MODIFIED RACING SERIES
RETURNS TO THOMPSON THIS WEEK
Valenti Modified Racing Series will return to the
Thompson Speedway this Thursday, July 25. This
week’s race will mark their second appearance of the
VMRS at Thompson in 2013. However, their first race
on May 15th, was cut short by rain after only one
qualifying race had been completed.
Fans have been anxiously awaiting the return of the
VMRS to Thompson. They are scheduled to run
qualifying races and a 75-lap main event. This will
be the 6th race of the season for the exciting
touring Modifieds. Thus far, there has been only one
repeat winner in this extremely competitive
division. Tommy Barrett has collected two wins and,
as a result, leads the VMRS point chase as they head
to Thompson. Other Winners this year include Steve
Masse, Rowan Pennink, Louie Mechalides and Dwight
Joining the Valenti Modifieds will be Thompson’s own
NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Sunoco Modifieds,
Late Models, Lite Modifieds, Xtra Mart Limited
Sportsman and Monster Mini Stocks. The Late Models
will share in the Thursday night spotlight as they
will compete in their longest race of the season.
They are slated to run a 40-lap main.
Anyone still holding tickets for the rained-out May
15th race is urged to use them this week. The May
15th tickets are the official rain checks for this
event. However, if those tickets are not used on
July 25, they will be accepted for any Thompson race
event of equal or lesser value.
Grandstands will open at 4 PM with racing at 6 PM.
Complete details on the evening’s schedule of events
are available on the Thompson web page.
