DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The 2014 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour schedule has a pair of special non-points events on the slate this season to go along with its traditional calendar and some notable additions.

The Whelen Southern Modified Tour’s 10th season of competition will see 15 championship points events scattered throughout the tour’s familiar southeastern footprint. Added to the season-opening non-points UNOH Battle At The Beach at Daytona International Speedway is another special event folded into the June Whelen Modified Tour visit to New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Also new this year is second visits to Virginia short tracks — Langley Speedway and South Boston Speedway.

When the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour makes its summer visit to New Hampshire, the points race on Saturday, July 12, will be preceded by a unique, invitation-only 25-lap shootout the day before that includes the Southern Tour. The race will feature a limited field and is only open to past NASCAR Whelen Modified and Whelen Southern Modified Tour champions and race winners, along with 2013 Sunoco Rookies of the Year for both tours.

“The expanded 2014 calendar gives the passionate Modified fans additional opportunities to enjoy the stars, cars and high-speed excitement of the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour at some of the most historic tracks in all of NASCAR,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR vice president, regional and touring series.
