Naples, ME – The NE Big-Block Super Modified Series has received a plethora of support from not only New England but from across New York, Pennsylvania and Canada. The cost-saving measures and general excitement have enticed 16 teams to purchase a series license and a large amount to commit to the entire schedule for the inaugural season.
NEBSMS will be kicking the season off at Oxford Plains Speedway in their first event for Super Modifieds since 2014 and also returning the night before the 49th Oxford 250 in late August. While White Mountain Motorsports Park is not known for Super Modified Racing and Thunder Road International Speedbowl has never had a Big Block Super race, NEBSMS will run twice at both the beloved quarter miles. Look for track records to fall as both tracks could feature sub ten second lap times.
For those looking for races a little further south, Seekonk Speedway will host a midweek special August 24th for the Boston Louie Memorial. Jon McKennedy picked up the victory over Ben Sietz last season and should be poised for another great battle this year with a great field of drivers. Not to be forgotten NEBSMS will also be on the card for World Series Weekend at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. Big Block Supers have a lot of history at Thompson with legendary winners like Bentley Warren and Richie Evans. Current NEBSMS registered drivers Russ Wood, Rob Summers, Ben Sietz, and Jon McKennedy have also picked up big Super Modified Victories at Thompson in more recent history. Over the last three Big Block Super races at Thompson an average of 22 cars were in attendance for the Marquee event. We are anticipating to surpass that number in 2022.
Additionally, as a bonus for fans, half of the NEBSMS events are in combination with the Pro All Stars Series, giving spectators a fantastic mix of Super Modified Racing and Super Late Model racing at a great ticket value.
We are extremely excited for our inaugural season and growing Big Block Super Modified Racing. See the schedule below or pick up a copy at the Northeast Motorsports Expo January 7th-9th at the Augusta Civic Center in Augusta, ME and check out Rob Summers #5 Big Block Super Modified on display.
