Final TTOMS race of the Year Scheduled for Sat. Oct 28

Seekonk, MA (September 18, 2017): It could be said that Matt Hirschman of Northampton, PA, puts the fear into the competition when he arrives for a NorthEast Racecars Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) event.

Hirschman hopes to take the witches broom and sweep not only the Seekonk events but the entire Tri-Track Open Modified Season. Slated to be the final event in the northeast for the 2017 racing season, the roster of drivers looking to play spoiler should be extensive and impressive. The 100-lap Modified race will pay $6,000 to the winner.

MID-WEEK FLAMINGO MOTORSPORTS 100 ON TAP FOR TTOMS AT STAR SPEEDWAY

Seekonk, Mass. (August 20, 2017): There has always been something special about the NorthEast Racecars Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS). Maybe it is the Series origin – with a couple of devoted ‘fans’ who put the proverbial blood, sweat and tears into creating a platform for the racers.  Or, maybe it is the ‘old school’ mentality of the Series – hosting events with a flair for the ‘golden age of racing’ at historic speedways.  Whatever it is, teams and fans alike come out to support the Series.

This Wednesday night at Star Speedway, the drivers and fans that support the Tri-Track Open Modified Series will be treated to much of the same with the running of the Flamingo Motorsports 100 at the historic bullring in Epping, NH. The mid-week event is reminiscent of the former Yankee All-Star League. And, like those events, the TTOMS August Classic at Star will bring out some of the biggest names in modified racing.

With two recent victories in Modified Tour competition, the red-hot Ryan Preece may be considered the odds-on favorite. His strong performances in the Nationwide Series this season likely make him the sentimental favorite as well.  Fresh off weekend wins perennial favorite Matt Hirschman, Anthony Nocella and Rowan Pennink will be on hand at Star on Wednesday night.

The racing card will also include Star Speedway’s Strictly Stocks, Roadrunners and Six-Shooters.  Practice gets underway at 4:30pm on Wednesday, August 23. Qualifying events for all divisions will begin at7:00pm followed by feature events which will also include a B-Main for the TTOMS.

The night’s featured Flamingo Motorsports sponsored TTOMS event will go 100 green flag laps with the winner taking home $6,000. The event will pay $1,000 to take the green flag.

General Admission for the full-night of racing is only $25 for adults. Senior/Junior tickets are only $20. Children 10 and under are admitted free. Pit admission is $40.  The Star Speedway pit area is open to minors with a signed release form and a guardian.

Back in the mid-1970s, the Yankee All-Star League consisted of a 6-event Modified open competition series for Modifieds at Waterford Speedbowl, Thompson and Star Speedways (and later Monadnock Speedway).

The Tri-Track Open Modified Series is shaped much like the Yankee All-Star League.

According to speedbowlhistory.com, “each track held a pair of 50-lap feature events, all held on Wednesdays with open competition rules and qualifying heats”. Competitors would receive purse money and points for each race, with a Yankee All Star League Champion crowned and point fund distributed at season’s end.

Richie Evans, Fred DeSarro, Ollie Silva, Geoff Bodine, Ed Flemke, Bugsy Stevens, Gene Bergin, the Bouchard Brothers, Bob Santos, Leo Cleary, and Charlie Jarzombek were among the legendary drivers to support the Yankee All-Star League. A great review of the Yankee All Star League and complete list of results from the entire Yankee All-Star League history can be found at speedbowlhistory.com/yankee-all-star-league.
