UP FOR SEASON OPENER AT CLAREMONT
a host of Claremont Speedway regulars the countdown
to the Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) season
opener has already begun. The Series’ 2018 season
opens with the running of the inaugural Ron
Bouchard's Auto Stores 100 at Claremont Speedway
presented by SPAFCO and Jerico on Saturday, May 26,
The 1/3 mile asphalt oval located in Claremont, NH,
runs Friday nights weekly during the season and
features tour-type Modifieds; giving a potential
home track advantage to a group of very talented
racers. Already filing entries include the likes of
Russ Hersey, Todd Patnode, Chris Bolton, Brian
Robbie and Mike Willis.
“This place has an old school racing feel,” said
Hersey of N. Swanzey, NH. “Lots of local people are
excited about Modified racing and the track has
great owners who really care about the racers and
the health of short track racing.”
The event, scheduled for Saturday of Memorial Day
weekend, is the first- ever Saturday night special
event for Claremont Speedway. Featuring the $6k to
win 100-green flag lap main event for the tour-type
Modifieds, the night's race card also includes Super
Streets, Street Stocks and the 4-cylinder Wildcats.
With the Bouchard family being long-time sponsors
and one-time racers at Claremont Speedway, the
recent announcement of title sponsorship by Ron
Bouchard's Auto Stores makes this Memorial Day
special event even more special.
Grandstand Admission for the Saturday, May 26 event
is only $25. Kids ages 6-12 are admitted for $10 and
ages 5 and under are free. Pit gates open at 1PM.
Practice gets underway at 3PM when the grandstands
