NASCAR Announces 2010 Whelen Southern Modified Tour Schedule

Daytona Beach, Fla. --

For Immediate Release: Nov. 14, 2009

 


NASCAR has announced the 2010 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour schedule, which is highlighted by four new tracks and traditional stops at historic venues.

The 2010 season – the sixth for the Whelen Southern Modified Tour – will open and close on NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekends as the quarter-mile tracks at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway will play host to the Tour for the first time. Atlanta’s “Thunder Ring” will be the site of the Southern Tour season-opener on March 5 and the 2010 champion will be crowned at Charlotte on Oct. 14 at the quarter-mile track made popular by the “Summer Shootout Series.”


“The 2010 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour schedule features an exciting blend of traditional stops with new venues, and an opportunity to both open the season and crown a champion in conjunction with high-profile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekends,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR Managing Director of Racing Operations. “We are very pleased to have these new venues on board to feature the Tour as it continues to establish roots throughout the southeast.”

A third national series companion event is slated for a return visit to the “World’s Fastest Half Mile.” After the success of the inaugural event at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway in 2009, the high-banked facility will return to the schedule in 2010, once again as a combination race with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. The Modifieds will run as a part of a doubleheader on Aug. 18 with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.


In addition to the Atlanta and Charlotte bullrings, also new to the Whelen Southern Modified Tour’s schedule will be .4-mile tracks Langley Speedway and Tri-County Motor Speedway. Langley, which has a history of NASCAR Sprint Cup and NASCAR Nationwide Series events in its storied past, will welcome the Southern Modified Tour to Hampton, Va., on Sept. 4. Tri-County, located in Hudson, N.C., is on the schedule for Sept. 25.

Whelen Southern Modified Tour staple Caraway Speedway will play host to three events on March 14, July 2 and Aug. 28. The .455-mile high-banked track in Asheboro, N.C., has held more Southern Tour races than any other facility with 29.


A pair of historic facilities will also welcome back the Whelen Southern Modified Tour in 2010. Perhaps the most storied Modified track in the south, Bowman Gray Stadium will feature the Southern Tour on Aug. 7 at its venerable quarter-mile in Winston-Salem, N.C., while South Boston (Va.) Speedway is slated to bring the Southern Tour back for the second year in a row on April 3. This year’s race at South Boston will be run as part of a doubleheader with the NASCAR Camping World Series East.

The schedule announcement was made from the site of the NASCAR Touring Series Awards Gala, in Concord, N.C. where Whelen Southern Modified Tour titlist George Brunnhoelzl III and the rest of the touring series champions will be honored Saturday night. Fans can watch the live online stream at www.nascarhometracks.com at 7 p.m. ET.
