Saturday, July 4, the Modifieds take center stage with full qualifying and the 200-lap main event.

Both nights of racing start at 6:00pm and will conclude with a dazzling holiday fireworks display.
“We’re so happy to have the Whelen Modified Tour coming to White Mountain,” WMMP managing partner Cris Michaud said. “This wasn’t even on our radar a few weeks ago, so to have it come together like this is huge for the track and our fans. And, of course, we’re always excited to have PASS come to visit. Having two full nights of racing featuring two major Northeast series and all of our local heroes is a must-see whether you’re at the track or watching on pay-per-view.”

From 1948 to 1984, the NASCAR Modified National Championship was one of the most sought-after crowns and was held by NASCAR Hall of Famers Red Byron, Joe Weatherly, Bobby Allison, and Richie Evans, among others. The Modified Tour was formed in 1985 and is now in its 36th season of competition. For more about the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, visit https://hometracks.nascar.com/whelen-modified-tour.
