ON UNBEATABLE HIRSCHMAN
FOR TTOMS HAUNTED HUNDRED AT SEEKONK
of the Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) have
announced a bounty on Matt Hirschman of Northampton,
PA, in the upcoming Haunted Hundred at Seekonk
Speedway on Saturday, October 28. Hirschman is
undefeated in TTOMS competition thus far in 2017;
scoring victories in the lucrative Open Wheel
Wednesday and SBM IV events at Seekonk and Star
Speedways respectively as well as the most recent
event at Star. Any competitor who dethrones
Hirschman will receive a $1,500 bonus (should
Hirschman also be on the lead lap). If Hirschman
out-duels the competition yet again, he will take
home the $1,500 bonus.
There are plenty of contenders who can earn
themselves the $1,500 bounty. The likes of newly
crowned champions Anthony Nocella, the 2017 Modified
Racing Series (MRS) Champion, and Jon McKennedy,
2017 International Supermodified Series (ISMA)
Champion, top the list of red-hot competitors. Ryan
Preece, Rowan Pennink, Woody Pitkat, Ron Silk and
Tommy Barrett have to be among the favorite drivers
having filed early entries for the Haunted Hundred.
After securing the pole at the Modified Tour event
during World Series Weekend at Thompson, Chase
Dowling will undoubtedly take a shot at Hirschman
for the victory and the bounty. Fresh off his win in
the MRS finale at Lee USA Speedway, Russ Hersey will
be looking to put his prowess at the Cement Palace
to the test. Hersey is a former Pro Stock winner of
the prestigious D. Anthony Venditti Memorial.
You can never count out the likes of the hometown
heroes Vinnie Annarummo and Ryan Vanesse. Dark
horses to score the bounty include Chris Pasteryak,
Derek Ramstrom, Jon Kievman and Richard Savary.
A total of 34 teams have filed entries thus far for
the Haunted Hundred.
Pit gates will open at 8am on Saturday, October 28.
Grandstands will open at 11am with racing starting
at 1pm. Pit admission is $35. Adult general

best costumes. Children and adults alike are invited
