       One week later the speedway will move back to Saturday night racing with the annual Southern Tier Open for Modifieds.  The 40 lap event will pay $2,500 to win and will allow teams to put on the sail panels in this unique open competition style event.  On Saturday, April 26th the official point season will start for the Modified division with yet another high paying event.  The winner of the 30 lap special will earn $2,000 to win on that evening.
