Two weeks ago this Sunday, when a drenching rain forced the starting lineup of the True Value Modified Racing Series to the speedway infield after two laps of competition, Andy Seuss, Hampstead, NH; thought his early lead and a shot at his first win of the season was over. The initial makeup date announced by the speedway operatives was Saturday night Sept 22, a day marked on the Seuss calendar for a family wedding. Andy planned to watch his brother, Steve Jr, “go down the aisle” never figuring he’d be the guy bringing the TVMRS field down the aisle, (the long front straightaway) when the race resumed at the historic Connecticut oval.
All that changed when the speedway’s management, made an adjustment to the schedule, to avoid racing the same day as the historic Race of Champions event in upstate New York, another major program for modified race cars. The conclusion of the “Sunoco Race Fuels Mod Mania” weekend will take place this Sunday with the TVMRS picking up where it left and completing the 75 lap feature race. The green flag to restart the event will drop at 2:30PM.
