(Drums Pa. 6 10 2020)-Evergreen Raceway will hear the roar of the 600 horsepower Tour Type Modifieds earlier than expected.
The original schedule for the 2020 racing season would have a June 21st card of Late Models, Street Stocks, Factory Stocks, 4 Cylinders. Legends and Bandoleros .
The track would then have the 28th off due to the NASCAR Cup double header at Pocono Raceway not far from the track. However with how late the season is getting started Makarewicz the Drums native quickly added June 28th to the season’s schedule.
The original announced June 28th event included the Evergreen Modified division, which is a step down from the full blown asphalt Modifieds along with the Street Stocks, 4 cylinders and Jr 4 Cylinders.
Quickly calls, social media messages and emails began to flow to the Speedway about adding the Tour Type Modifieds to the event. ” The response to add Tour Modifieds to our June 28th schedule has been insane” stated announcer Ted Grow.
Makarewicz the fifth year promoter chimed in “calls have been coming left and right with support being shown by guys who just want to come and race”.
“This is for them they asked for it and I am delivering.”More details are still forthcoming in the next week or so regarding this event please stay up to date on our Facebook page and website
