For the first time ever, Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, IL will go LIVE for the running of the “Summit Racing Equipment Modified Mania Dirt Nationals.” Held Thursday, September 28, through Saturday, September 30, this can’t miss event is one of the largest Modified events in the country.
Boasting a nightly winner’s payout of $3,000, $4,000 and $5,000 respectively, a huge field is anticipated for this 13th annual event. To further add to the weekend, UMP Late Models will also race each night for $2,000, $2,500 and $3,000.
“We couldn’t be happier to make this announcement,” commented RacinDirt.com’s Trenton Berry. “This is an event we’ve followed from a far the past several seasons. Scheduling had never worked out for us previously, so to say we’re excited to finally be able to broadcast this live, is an understatement. The Gundaker’s are extremely good promoters and they frequently fill the grandstands at Tri-City. It’ll be a banner weekend for our site. We’re also excited to showcase their awesome track to a nationwide audience!”
Each night 26 competitors will qualify for the Modified feature event, up two spots from previous season. DIRTcar National Points will also be on the line.
The event is made possible by Summit Racing Equipment, A1 Towing, Mullins Race Engines, Impressive Race Cars and Fast Shafts.
