Rain Postpones Seekonk’s “Modified Madness”

Seekonk, MA — With over $31,000 in purse money and the bulk of the northeast’s heaviest hitters in Modified racing circles ready to converge upon the Seekonk Speedway, the 1/3-mile oval was forced to postpone Wednesday’s $10,000 to win Viveiros Insurance Modified Madness race due to rain. With competitors coming from as far away as Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maine, and even North Carolina to attempt to qualify for the 100 green flag lap event, speedway management opted to reschedule the event after consulting with various local weather sources.

“It’s unfortunate that we had to postpone this race as over the past three years it’s gotten bigger and better and had generated a tremendous amount of interest,” assistant manager David Alburn stated. “However, we could see that the weather was not going to cooperate and felt it was important to make this decision before our competitors drove literally hundreds of miles to get here to end up sitting in the rain.” The Modified Madness portion of the program has been rescheduled for Saturday night, September 22, in conjunction with the speedway’s regular Saturday night lineup of Pro Stocks, Late Models, Sport Trucks, and Street Stocks.
