Whelen Modified Tour Set To Open Stafford Season
With one New England racing tradition in the rearview, its time for another as the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will participate in Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway’s Tech-Net Spring Sizzler presented by CARQUEST on April 24-25.
The 2010 season began for the Whelen Modified Tour in the Icebreaker on April 11 as part of the traditional opening weekend for Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway. The same set-up is scheduled to take place this weekend as the Tour will be on the bill for Stafford’s season-opener, also a mainstay on the northeast racing calendar.
The 2010 Spring Sizzler will be the 39th edition of the “Greatest Race in the History of Spring,” and the 25th in which the Whelen Modified Tour has participated. Owner of many milestones, the late Richie Evans captured the first Spring Sizzler for the Tour in 1985, and he heads the list of many Modified stalwarts that count Sizzler victories among their many accomplishments.
