Seekonk, MA — When the Modified Racing Series, sponsored by Bob Valenti AutoMall.com rolled out the carpet for the 2010 season, Jon McKennedy, of East Chelmsford, MA, was the series-defending champion. Six months later, the hard-charging McKennedy is ready for a three-race playoff to determine the 2010 championship.
The popular McKennedy will take a 17-point lead into Seekonk Speedway, Saturday and Sunday, October 9, and 10, to compete in the 100- lap D.Anthony Venditti Fall Classic, a long-time holiday weekend tradition at the famed oval. Twin State Speedway, Claremont, NH, and Lee USA Speedway, Lee, NH, will provide the stage, October 17, and 24.
McKennedy is trying to become only the second driver in series history to win consecutive titles. Kirk Alexander, a three-time champion, won back-to-back Championships in 2004-2005.
