DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The 2014 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour schedule features a strong lineup of traditional dates along with a pair of marquee non-points events.

The Whelen Modified Tour’s 29th season will see 14 championship points events spread across four states. Added to the season-opening non-points UNOH Battle At The Beach at Daytona International Speedway is another special event paired with the June visit to New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
When the 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. 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 passionate Modified fans take their racing very seriously,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR vice president, regional and touring series. “This year’s calendar will give those fans ample opportunity to enjoy the thunder of the Whelen Modified Tour cars along with its many stars at tremendous racing facilities.”
