FREDERICTON, New Brunswick – The Atlantic Modified Tour has released its schedule of events for the upcoming season.

Much like the previous season, the tour will visit the three premier ovals within the Province of New Brunswick with a total of 12 events scheduled beginning in May.

The green flag will wave for the Atlantic Modified Tour on Saturday, May 30 with a visit to Speedway Miramichi in Miramichi, New Brunswick. The historic oval on New Brunswick’s North Shore will host the Series five times in 2020, including the season opener and the finale during The Very Best Fall Shootout on Saturday, Oct. 3. Three mid-season dates in Canada’s Irish Capital will go a long way in determining a 2020 champion on Saturday, July 25, Saturday, Aug. 8 and Saturday, Sept. 12.

Petty Int’l Raceway will play host to five Atlantic Modified Tour events. Two of those events will be on the undercard of the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour on Saturday, June 27 and Saturday, Aug. 22. The Series will contest their penultimate event of the season on Friday, Sept. 18 during the Mike Stevens Memorial Weekend. The Tour will also make stops to the high banked River Glade, New Brunswick bullring on Saturday, June 13 and Saturday, Aug. 15.

Speedway 660 will see the Modifieds hit the track twice this season. The open wheeled chariots will visit the track on Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, Sept. 6. The September date is a part of SpeedWeekend 2020 and will serve as one of the opening acts to that evening’s 20th Annual Pro Stock 250.

“Brenda and I are very excited about the opportunity to help develop and grow the Atlantic Modified Tour,” said Glyn Nott of Bryn Enterprises. “We are looking forward to supporting local tracks and grass roots racing in New Brunswick. We are making final arrangements to be at Radical Speedsport in April at the Moncton Coliseum. We hope to see familiar faces in Moncton from April 17-19 as well as our season opener on Saturday, May 30 at Speedway Miramichi.”
