TWO MODIFIED GUARANTEED STARTER RACES TO HELP SET FIELD FOR 43RD RUNNING OF THE SOUTHERN TIER 100 AT FIVE MILE POINT SPEEDWAY ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27TH.
KIRKWOOD, NY…Five Mile Point Speedway is readying for the biggest two days of racing the 62 year old quarter mile speedway has seen to date. The National Quarter Mile Dirt Track Championship will take place on Friday, October 26th and Saturday, October 27th. Once again two Modified Guaranteed Starter events will help set the field for the 43rd running of the Southern Tier 100 on Saturday (10/27).
Five Mile Point Speedway and RoC Dirt Series Promoter Andrew Harpell came up with the Guaranteed Starters race concept a few years ago and it has remained very popular with the race teams that support the speedway. All the Modified drivers that failed to qualify for the recently held Short Track SuperNationals will have an opportunity to race in one of two 12 lap Guaranteed Starter races prior to traditional qualifying for the Southern Tier 100. The two 12 lap events will start the racing program on Saturday with the race winner in each transferring to the Southern Tier 100. All of the teams including the two guaranteed starters will still go through traditional heat races to qualify and/or better their starting position in the feature event.
Harpell commented on the concept, “Each year we put these two races on to show our appreciation for supporting our late season events at Five Mile Point Speedway.” “A driver may have had tough luck at the last event but now has an opportunity to turn that in to a great race day for the Southern Tier 100.”
Any of the non-qualifiers from the Short Track SuperNationals that take the green in either of the two Guaranteed Starter races will get a $50 bill for their participation. The two race winners will have ensured themselves of $300 by making it in to the 43rd Southern Tier 100 starting field.
The National Quarter Mile Dirt Track Championship Weekend will take place on Friday, October 26th and Saturday, October 27th at Five Mile Point Speedway. Racing on Friday evening will get underway at 7 p.m. with racing set to get underway at 3:45 p.m. on Saturday. There will be free camping, free parking and kids 12 and younger will be admitted free of charge. For further information please phone 607-775-5555 or log on to www.fivemilepointspeedway.net.
