Season Finale at Thompson Almost Produced a Top 10 Finish to Ring in Top Rookie Title

Concord, NC — Glen Reen closed out his first season on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour at Thompson International Speedway (CT) by realizing his biggest goal of the season.  The young Massachusetts driver was named as the Tour’s 2008 Rookie of the Year for his performance throughout the season.

Meanwhile, his performance on Sunday afternoon at Thompson almost allowed Reen to clinch the rookie title in high fashion.  With less than 10 laps to go in the race, Reen was solidly in the top 10 when he became the innocent victim of a restart wreck on the frontstretch.

Norm Wrenns Wins Harry Kourafas Jr. Memorial Race at Thompson

Welcome back once again, glad that you are back joining us for some more Pro 4 racing. This would be a full weekend of action at the World Series of Racing at Thompson International Speedway. The event kicked off on Friday morning right at nine A.M. Some of the crews had stayed overnight on Thursday to be ready bright and early, as some had dropped their campers off earlier in the week to have a good spot for a fun filled weekend.

The club had nineteen teams arrive to the track, some arriving later in the day being a work day for them. As the first practice of the day was let out there were twelve cars on the track. A pack of seven was running strong together with #1M Norman Wrenn leading them. #00 Dave Richardi heading into the pits with engine troubles having an issue with his carburetor. #13 George Sherman calling it an early day having blown his motor. Returning back since running at Beech Ridge is #29 Matt Sagar. Heading into the pits as well is #49 Joe Lemay with his never ending problem of his car overheating. Over all the practice went well with no accidents.
