WHELEN 150 CANCELLED
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour
Whelen 150, a victim of the weather on July 22, has been cancelled.
The Mod Tour will be back on Sunday, Sept.24 for the Whelen
Volunteer Fire Department 150. It will be part of the season-ending Town
Fair Tire Fall Finale, a two-day, 13-division extraganza that will include
the Speedbowl’s four NASCAR weekly divisions.
In cooperation with Whelen, the Speedbowl will honor the
area’s volunteer firemen and women. On Saturday (Sept 23), local fire
departments will be showing off their equipment. Interspersed with the
apparatus will be the WMT cars and stars.
In exchange for autographs and photographs, fans will be
asked to make a cash contribution, the total being divided among the
visiting fire departments.
“Volunteer fireman and women are true heroes,” says Speedbowl
General Manager Bill Roth. “We are honored to join Whelen in honoring some
of the most unselfish individuals in our community.”
