Kyle Ellwood of Riverhead, NY will enter several NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour races this season. He plans four races at Thompson (Icebreaker and World Series) and both races at his home track, Riverhead (NY) Raceway. Ellwood is looking for more races if financing is available, especially the NAPA Spring Sizzler at Stafford (CT) Motor Speedway.
“That’s going to be the biggest part this year is running these couple of tour races that we’re going to run and finding enough people do to it,” Ellwood said. “It all depends on how funding goes, and how our team is, and how Jeff’s (Goodale) doing. … on how the cards fall, and how the first couple weeks at Riverhead go.”
Ellwood made his initial foray into the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour last year at Riverhead in June and the World Series at Thompson.
“It was a great experience. I got to learn a lot, a lot of seat time and you get to learn a lot about the car too in the longer races.”
