The two 35 lap races will each pay $3,000 to winner
and the top 11 finishers in each race will advance
into the 65 lap feature event that will pay $5,000
to win later in the afternoon. There will also be a
25 lap B-Main race, that pays $1,000 to win and the
top four finishers will advance into the 65 lapper.
Coming into the event, 45 cars are currently
pre-entered in hopes of taking down the big check.

the TS Haulers No. 6 on Sunday and he is joined by
many of his fellow NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour
Justin Bonsignore is entered in the SPAFCO Chassis

Anthony Nocella, Todd Annarummo, Troy Talman and
Waterford SK Modified regulars Ted Christopher and
Keith Rocco have also filed an entry.
Dick Houlihan, Rob Summers, Chris Pasteryak, Dylan

The Tri Track Series does drop the lowest finish for
each driver during the 2016 season, so any of these
drivers could come home with the title when the 65
lap main event is complete.
Sunday’s 35 lap races will each pay $14,380, while
the 25 lap B-Main will pay $8,000. The 65 lap main
event will pay a purse of $19,800.
Each and every one of the races will pay at least
$300 to start, but if a driver can win both their 35
lapper and 65 lapper they will collect $8,000.
The total payout including all the races on Sunday
will be $57,400.
TTOMS wishes to thank all sponsors, teams, media,
fans and competitors for their hard work and
dedication to the racing for the 2016 season. At
this point, the future of the series is unknown.
Though the Bemer's Big Show weekend at Waterford is
a two day show, the Tri Track Open Modified Series
will only be a part of the Sunday portion.
No haulers may enter the track until Sunday morning.
