KIRKWOOD, NY -

This unique Modified event will award six guaranteed starting berths in upcoming 2006 major events. These guaranteed starting berths include: Each of the upcoming three R.o.C Modified Tour races at Five Mile Point Speedway (the August 9th R.o.C event at Five Mile Point Speedway will see NEXTEL Cup driver Ken Schrader in the field); the T3 358 Modified event being held at Five Mile Point Speedway on October 13th; the Supernationals All Star Cash Dash at Afton Speedway on October 7th and lastly a guaranteed spot in the Victoria 200 All Star Race at Fulton Speedway on September 30th.
Added to the unique nature of this event is the fact that the top six Modified feature finishers will all get one the above mentioned spots. The Modified feature winner will get the first choice of which guaranteed spot they want to take. The second place winner will get the next option and this process will take place among the top six finishers. The extra value of these guaranteed berths is over $1,500. Many outside drivers have indicated they are planning on attending this Tuesday's event.
Also on the card will be the Sportsman Modifieds, Pure Stocks and IMCA Modifieds. The Sportsman teams will be competing in a non-point race, however twenty-five "show up" points will be distributed.
