RAIN FORCES CHANGES TO THOMPSON SCHEDULE
THOMPSON, CT.† With three consecutive weeks of rained out race programs, Thompson Speedway officials have been able to rearrange the trackís schedule to accommodate the events interrupted by Mother Nature.
††††††††††† Thursday, August 15th is the regularly scheduled date for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour to be at Thompson for the annual Budweiser 150. That date remains unchanged as does the schedule of events for that race day.
††††††††††† The Valenti Modified Racing Series which has been rained out for the last three weeks has now been rescheduled for Thursday, August 22nd. The VMRS will be joined by the Antique Outlaw Vintage Modifieds and the New England Truck Series along with Thompsonís five NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions. Lite Modifieds will run their extra distance, 25-lap main event.
††††††††††† On Thursday, August 29th, Thompson will play host to the North East Mini Stock Tour along with Thompsonís five weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions. Included in the program will be the delayed 40-lap Late Model feature event.
††††††††††† Thompson Speedway wishes to thank everyone from the Valenti Modified Series for their amazing cooperation in all of the rescheduling that has been done over the last three weeks. A special thanks also goes out to the New England Truck Series officials who have also worked very closely to reschedule their race. Hopefully, further adjustments in the schedule will not be necessary.
