Barre, VT and Naples, ME — Officials from the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) announced today that with many Tour-type Modified Teams being committed to the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Friday and Saturday, officials felt it best to postpone the Twisted Tea Midsummer 75 event to Tuesday, August 16 and create an exciting doubleheader event to coincide the with the Phoenix Communications 150 for the NASCAR Modifieds on Wednesday, August 17th.
With the Twisted Tea Midsummer 75 virtually wedged between NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour events at New Jersey’s Wall Stadium on July 9th and the upcoming event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, officials felt the third Outlaw Open Modified event of 2022 would lack a strong, quality car count with teams preparing for the big stage in Loudon.
“It’s a tough decision to make, but Tom and I feel the direction we’re heading with Thompson Speedway is a positive one, for both fans and teams,” said American-Canadian Tour managing partner Cris Michaud. “We feel postponing Wednesday’s event is the best decision to keep that positive momentum going.”
Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park will return on Tuesday, August 16th for an epic midweek doubleheader. All weekly divisions, including the SK Modifieds, ACT-type Late Models and Limited Sportsman return to the Thompson high banks on Tuesday with a special Fireworks Spectacular while on Wednesday, August 17th the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour returns to Thompson for the Phoenix Communications 150. Full race day schedules for the new August doubleheader will be released within the next two weeks.
