Night June 29

Thompson International Speedway on Thursday, June 29th. Two of NASCAR’s most
exciting touring divisions will be in action in twin 100-lap races. The
NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and the Busch East, Grand National division will
make up the twin bill of exciting big league racing.
The very best drives in both NASCAR divisions will be on hand
for this unique, same-day, twin bill. The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour,
presented by the New England Dodge Dealers, will feature drivers like
current points leader, Ted Christopher, Thompson ICEBREAKER winner, Mike
Stefanik, defending division champion, Tony Hirschman and many, many more.
