The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour is headed back to the mountains of New Hampshire.
NASCAR and White Mountain Motorsports Park officials announced on Thursday their intention to run a second Whelen Modified Tour race at the North Woodstock, New Hampshire, oval on Saturday, August 1 at 7 p.m. The White Mountain Showdown 200 will again air live on TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold.
The Whelen Modified Tour made their inaugural stop at White Mountain on July 4 — where Justin Bonsignore used a late bump and run to score his second straight win to open the season. Matt Hirschman and Doug Coby completed the podium.

“The last few weeks have been a whirlwind in the best way,” White Mountain Motorsports Park managing partner Cris Michaud said in a press release. “In less than a month, we went from hoping that maybe the NASCAR Modifieds would come in 2021 to having two events in 2020. If the return visit is as good as the first one, the fans are in for a real treat.”
“The Independence Day 200 was everything we hoped it would be,” Michaud continued. “It received almost universal praise from the drivers, NASCAR officials, and most importantly the fans. Right in Victory Lane, drivers were talking about how they wanted to come back. When everybody involved wants something to happen, it’s pretty easy to get a deal done.”
Per the press release from White Mountain officials: “Admission for the White Mountain Showdown 200 will be $30 for adults and $5 for kids ages 6-12. Attendance will once again be limited to 50% of capacity per New Hampshire state guidelines. White Mountain is working on an online ticketing system for the event and aims to go live this coming Monday, July 13.”
