All the marbles will be on the line at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl when the Northeast Race Cars and Parts Tri Track Open Modified Series concludes an action packed weekend on October 25.
Unlike the four races prior in 2015, the series season finale will be a non-points event. At the Speedbowl in September, Matt Hirschman was crowned the 2015 Tri Track Series champion after finishing on the podium in the Dunleavy’s 100.
This event will also hold a completely different format than any of the other four races this season. There will be no short distance heat races followed up by consolation races and a B-main feature. Instead, this event will be started with two 35 lap “qualifying feature’s” that will determine who will advance into the big show.
The series will use a blind draw to line up the twin 35 lap feature’s, splitting the car count exactly in half. For example, if forty cars show up at the Speedbowl on that Sunday, twenty will be in the first feature and twenty will be in the second feature.
From there, the top eleven finishers in each one will transfer into a 65 lap, $5,000 to win main event. The 65 lap feature that will conclude the afternoon will include 22 drivers, plus up to four provisional spots that could be added by series officials.
Payout for the 35 lap qualifying races:
13-24 in the qualifying races will pay $400.
Payout for the 65 lap feature:
Series officials will also award a $200 bonus for 34 teams that competed at the Lee USA Speedway and Monadnock Speedway events earlier in the season.
Also in attendance on the Sunday afternoon will be New London-Waterford Speedbowl Mini Stocks, who will hold a 50 lap feature event. The $2,000 to win “Battle of the Sound,” for the Legend Cars, will also be 50 laps in distance. The series wishes to thank all of the fans, drivers, teams, sponsors and officials for the support during the 2015 racing season.
