The culmination of a lot of work by a group known as 'The Racing Guys' and race fan Jim Schaefer is Sunday afternoon, as New Hampshire's Center of Speed, the Lee USA Speedway welcomes tour-type Modified teams from across the northeast and beyond for a very special and lucrative 100-lap event on May 11.

While Lee has held two Modified events annually through the Valenti Modified Racing Series, this event will look a bit different to race fans. One of the biggest differences will be the allowed one tire change at any time during the 100-lap main event on a track known for tire conservation racing.

That fact, the lap money added by the Seekonk Grand Prix go-kart track, and having no points on the line should lead to some hard racing for the lead throughout. And just tonight Dunleavy's Truck and Trailer Repair has upped that amount.

The leader of each lap will now earn $30, with eight laps worth an impressive $80 to the race leader. Laps 2, 5, 20, 57, 61, 69, 85 and 99 are those laps. Additionally, lap 73 will pay $130 through sponsorship from Pat's Auto Center. These additional bonuses cound bring the race winner upwards to $8,000.

This race also has a significant amount of money on the line, to the tune of $41,000 plus. This will lead to some hard racing just to qualify, and earn the $1,000 in the process for being among the top 24 and a starting position in the first annual "Bullring Bash 100" powered by Sunoco Race Fuels.

Early entries for the race include Rowan Pennink and Matt Hirschman from Pennsylvania. Both have to be considered favorites given Pennink's recent success at Lee in the VMRS events driving for car owner Gary Casella and Hirschman's uncanny ability to shine in open show events no matter what car he drives.

Traveling teams include teenager Spencer Davis from Dawsonville, Georgia driving the Hillbilly Racing 79 and Andy Jankowiak from Buffalo, who has been a champion in nearly every style car he has raced. Jankowiak, a champion in the New York SK-type Modified began racing tour-type Modifieds just last season, but the son of the late Tony Jankowiak has proven his talent already.

Other drivers in the lineup will be Justin Bonsignore, Todd Szegedy, Chris Pasteryak, Les Hinckley, Max Zachem, Rowan Pennink, the most recent VMRS race winner Richard Savary and many more.

New Hampshire native Andy Seuss will travel from North Carolina to compete. Both he and Jon McKennedy will debut brand new cars for this race. A full list of early entries will be released by mid-week.

Also on the schedule will be the NASCAR 350 Supermodifieds, the Hobby Stocks and the Classic Lites. In honor of Mothers Day, ladies will get gate admission discount. Qualifying will begin at 1:30 PM, with features to follow and the "Bullring Bash 100" scheduled to go green at around 4:15 PM.

This is the first of three races that make up the Tri-Track Series, paying a point fund of $10,000 sponsored by Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists of Quincy, Mass. More than 30 race teams will converge on New Hampshire for this event Sunday, with additional practice time allowed Saturday weather permitting.
