SPEEDWAY’S SBM VI
UP NEXT FOR TTOMS
Saturday night, July 29 tour-type modified racing
returns to Star Speedway in Epping, NH, with the SBM
VI event presented by the Tri-Track Open Modified
Series (TTOMS). While the competition will be
strong, it will take a valiant effort to dethrone
former series champions Matt Hirschman, who has
three wins in the event’s five-year history.
Hirschman also scored the lucrative victory in the
TTOMS opener at Seekonk in June.
A race rich with history despite its short tenure,
the SBM event was originally intended to be a single
event in 2011 with the sole purpose of supporting
Modified teams who had been loyal to Star Speedway.
Thanks to strong competitor and fan support the race
remained. Over the years that same support has
allowed the race to grow.
With that history, it only made sense that the event
would be taken over by the Tri-Track Open Modified
Series after a one-year hiatus.
Car counts continued to rise from 16 in 2011 to 28
in 2012. Since that point, over 30 cars have
attempted to qualify for each of the subsequent SBM
Entries are strong for SBM VI with over 30 teams
expected once again. The likes of Woody Pitkat, Eric
Goodale, Anthony Nocella, Richard Savary, Tommy
Barrett, Jr. and Rowan Pennink are only a few of the
heavy-hitters expected to take their shot at scoring
The SBM VI will pay $6,000 to the winner with $1,000
to take the green. Thousands of dollars will also be
up for grabs with performance bonuses.
A full racing card will also feature Star Speedway’s
weekly divisions including 350 Supermodifieds.
