SOMERSET, Ky. — Officials from the Brucebilt Performance Iron-Man Open Wheel Modified Series have released the schedule of events for next season, which features 17 races across three states at 10 race tracks.

“This will be the biggest season the open wheels have seen since we started the tour four years ago,” stated Series Promoter Chris Tilley. “The open wheels have grown by leaps and bounds and they continue to grow. We want to thank all of the race tracks and drivers and race fans who have supported the growth of this class.”
