50-Lap Dash Next up for Race of Champions Modified Stars at Lancaster –

Lancaster, N.Y. – (July 28, 2018) – When the green flag flies Thursday night at Lancaster National Speedway for the Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series feature it will be on a race that is just 50-laps in distance, which will give teams a different set of circumstances to achieve each of their goals, which is ultimately to end up in victory lane.

50-laps is an extremely short distance for teams that are used to 75-to-100 lap events. The teams take part in the Ol Boy Cup each season at Lancaster, which is a 60-lap race, which was one of the most exciting races of the season, but with 10 less laps it gives teams a sense of urgency to get to the front.

“You’re going to have to be right when the car rolls off the trailer,” explains Ontario, N.Y., driver Tommy Catalano. “I like the concept. Weekly races are short and this gives us something different. We’re looking forward to it and I think we’ve got a shot to reach victory lane. Qualifying and the redraw will be the keys. We are looking forward to it. It’s definitely going to be interesting to see where we end up.”

The Modified Mania 50 joins the Lancaster Street Stocks as well as the Four Cylinders on Thursday giving fans a solid dose of short track racing before the speedway hosts their traditional Sunday Nostalgia Drag racing weekend.

Pit gates open at 4:00pm at Lancaster National Speedway on Thursday with racing beginning at 7:00pm. Visit or for more information on the “Modified Mania 50”.
