Thompson, CT — The much anticipated UNOH SHOWDOWN is set for this weekend at the Thompson International Speedway. Race fans have been looking forward to this first-time-ever event all season long.
The UNOH SHOWDOWN is unique in that the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will share the same bill for the first time in north. Each Tour will compete in its own 125-lap feature event for purses in excess of $53,000.00 for each Tour. Upon completion of the two 125s, the field for the 50-Lap, $50,000.00+ SHOWDOWN will be assembled and the stage will be set for what could be one of the greatest battles in NASCAR Whelen Modified racing history. The driver who emerges as the victor will pocket some $15,000.00.
The best drivers from both Tours are expected to be on hand for this exciting event. Defending Whelen Modified Tour champion Bobby Santos will lead a long list of the best that the north has to offer including Ted Christopher who will be back behind the wheel of the red # 36 WMT car. Current points leader in the North Tour, Ronnie Silk, Rowan Pennink, Todd Szegedy, Mike Stefanik, Ryan Preece and Doug Coby are just some of those that will be on hand for the SHOWDOWN.
