CLAREMONT, N.H. – Claremont Motorsports Park officials have confirmed the Modified Racing Series will return to the track this year for a Labor Day weekend event.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring the M.R.S. back to Claremont,” said track promoter Mike Parks. “Tour-type modifieds were the lifeblood of the speedway for many many years so to bring them back is an honor.
“Jack (Bateman) and general manager Willie Doucette are bringing the series back to its roots for 2021 and we are excited to be a part of that process.”
The Modified Racing Series is aiming to become more of a racer friendly, affordable series that any modified competitor can be competitive in. Thorough technical inspection, cost containment and a return to the series original tracks, are all part of this initiative.
“We want to be a more affordable New England short track series,” said Modified Racing Series General Manager Willie Doucette. “Claremont Motorsports Park is the reason the series started and we want to remember the places and people who got this started.
“We want to leave something positive for the next generation of modified racers.”
Other divisions on the card on Sept. 5 will be the Claremont Motorsports Park street stocks, pure stocks, six shooters and the NELCAR Legend cars.
“This is a big weekend for the speedway and we have some ideas for our entry level divisions,” said Parks. “We don’t have anything set in stone but we hope to get those teams a little extra glory that weekend.”
