The promoters of Shasta Raceway Park, Redwood Acres Raceway, and Ukiah Speedway have announced the formation of a Northern California Traveling Modified Series for the 2011 racing season. The series is being called the Tri-Track Challenge Series and will feature 6 events in 2011, three events at Ukiah Speedway April 23, June 25, and a two-day show Labor Day Weekend Sept 3-4. Shasta Raceway Park will host two events including the 4th Annual Craig Brown Memorial May 14 and August 20. Redwood Acres Raceway will host an event on July 9 which for many years previously was an historic modified date at that facility.
The series is open to all IMCA/GA-type Modifieds and will run on the Goodyear D2862/D2863 tires. The series will utilize the successful Northern California Open Show Rules which will be 2500 lb. minimum weight, maximum 58% left side weight, maximum spoiler height of 8”, interior slope of 6”.
Each 50-lap main event purse will be $750 to win and a $3700 payout for a 20 car-field. Points will be awarded towards a season championship with a points fund payout. Procedurally all racers will qualify, run heats, and main event lineups will be based on pill draw for inversion. The entry fee will be a modest $30 per car. Memberships for each track will be honored so that competitors will be able to gain access to the pits for each track at the member price. More details will be forthcoming by accessing www.shastaracewaypark.net or www.ukiahspeedway.com. Contact Rick Faeth @ (408) 499-6845 or Nadine Strauss @ (707) 274-1662.
