SEEKONK, Mass. – Tickets for the $10,000-to-win Tri-Track Open Modified Series debut at Stafford Motor Speedway on Saturday, Oct. 24, are now on sale.
All tickets sales done prior to race day will be through the Stafford Motor Speedway website and their online ticket portal.
Grandstand tickets for this race are priced at $35 per adult, while those children ages six to 14 will enter for just $10. Any children that are 5 years old and younger are free in the grandstands. Pit passes for the event are also available and will be sold for $50.
Due to capacity limits in the state of Connecticut because of COVID-19, there is a chance tickets sell out, so fans are encouraged to act quickly.
“This is going to be race fans won’t want to miss,” Wayne Darling, managing partner of the Tri-Track Open Modified Series, said. “The entry list is already stacking up, and we can’t wait to end our season with one of the most marquee races of the entire season in the Northeast.”
Call Before You Dig, a longtime supporter and sponsor at Stafford, has agreed to sponsor the event, titled the Call Before You Dig Modified Classic 81. The race will pin some of Tri-Track’s top talent – names like Matt Hirschman, Chase Dowling and Ronnie Williams – against some Stafford regulars like Keith Rocco and Todd Owen, among others. It’s already been confirmed that southern modified star and multiple-time Bowman Gray Stadium champion Burt Myers will be competing in the event.
With $10,000 on the line to the winner and a total purse nearing $50,000, the race is expected to draw a large car count to end the season. So far, the Tri-Track Open Modified Series has run three races this year – two at Monadnock Speedway, with victories by Craig Lutz and Sam Rameau – and one at Star Speedway, where Matt Hirschman went to victory lane in the annual SBM.
