Seekonk, Mass. (March 6, 2018):  For a host of Claremont Speedway regulars the countdown to the Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) season opener has already begun. The Series’ 2018 season opens with the running of the inaugural Ron Bouchard’s Auto Stores 100 at Claremont Speedway presented by SPAFCO and Jerico on Saturday, May 26, 2018.

The 1/3 mile asphalt oval located in Claremont, NH, runs Friday nights weekly during the season and features tour-type Modifieds; giving a potential home track advantage to a group of very talented racers. Already filing entries include the likes of Russ Hersey, Todd Patnode, Chris Bolton, Brian Robbie and Mike Willis.

“This place has an old school racing feel,” said Hersey of N. Swanzey, NH. “Lots of local people are excited about Modified racing and the track has great owners who really care about the racers and the health of short track racing.”

The event, scheduled for Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, is the first- ever Saturday night special event for Claremont Speedway. Featuring the $6k to win 100-green flag lap main event for the tour-type Modifieds, the night’s race card also includes Super Streets, Street Stocks and the  4-cylinder Wildcats.

With the Bouchard family being long-time sponsors and one-time racers at Claremont Speedway, the recent announcement of title sponsorship by Ron Bouchard’s Auto Stores makes this Memorial Day special event even more special.

Grandstand Admission for the Saturday, May 26 event is only $25. Kids ages 6-12 are admitted for $10 and ages 5 and under are free. Pit gates open at 1PM. Practice gets underway at 3PM when the grandstands open. Feature racing is slated for 6PM.

In addition to the locals, standouts filing early entries for the 2018 season include defending champion Matt Hirschman along with Mod Tour favorites Rowan Pennink and Calvin Carroll. Long-time supporters of the Tri-Track Series Richard Savary, Les Hinckley and Mike Holdridge have committed their support in 2018. The likes of early entrants Derek Ramstrom, Jon Kievman and Andy Jankowiak continue to showcase the Series’ ability to draw a variety of driving talents.

Look for further updates on registered drivers and other information as the date approaches.

The Ron Bouchard Auto Parts 100, presented by SPAFCO and Jerico, is also made possible with the help of a strong list of associate sponsors with a ton of racing heritage including Broad Brook Heating & Cooling, Fred Wilcox, Bruce Brennenstuhl, Fuller RV Rentals and Sales, Fuller’s Car Laundry, Ballard Trucks, Metcalf Paving, Pat’s Auto Center, George Summers Trucking, Ashaway Cement Products, Mad River Construction, Bradford Motors, Dunn’s Corner Repair, Twin Cedars and Ed French & Son Paving.

The four race TTOMS schedule includes the Ron Bouchard Auto Parts 100 at Claremont Speedway, the prestigious Open Wheel Wednesday 100 at Seekonk Speedway on Wednesday, June 27, the traditional SBM 125 at Star Speedway on Saturday, July 28 and the Haunted Hundred, also at Seekonk on Saturday, October 27.
