Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (TSMP) is one of NASCAR’s oldest and most historic Home Tracks, opening in 1940 and hosting its first NASCAR race in 1951.  Still operating under the NASCAR sanction sixty four years later, TSMP regularly hosts its own four NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions, as well as NASCAR’s oldest and most beloved regional touring series – the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour 

Nestled in the heart of Modified country, TSMP’s premier division features the drivers that do battle in the open-wheel ground pounders.  Known for their low, aggressive stance, the Sunoco Modifieds have featured NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Champions, Keith Rocco and Ted Christopher.  Keith Rocco took the 2016 championship after re-uniting with car owner Mark Pane.

Showcasing TSMP’s top-tier fendered racecars, the Late Model Division is known for its side-by-side racing and late race entertainment. 2016 saw William Wall claim his first Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park championship. 

Big car counts, wheel-to-wheel racing, and edge-of your-seat excitement have long been the trademarks of TSMP’s Limited Sportsman Division. Though winless, Ryan Waterman was the top point-getter in 2016, claiming his first track championship. 

Former street cars with roll cages and racing parts, the Mini Stock racecars are TSMP’s entry level division. Ripe with young talent and seasoned with experience, these four-cylinder power plants give breed to thrilling three-wide competition. In 2016, Wayne Burroughs Jr claimed his first championship at TSMP.

Known for racing excellence, Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park hosts four of the region’s largest events: the Icebreaker, Thompson 125, Bud “King of Beers” 150, and the World Series of Speedway Racing.  Nationally recognized by fans as one of the country’s best events, the World Series of Speedway Racing features 18 divisions of competition, including the championship events for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, American Canadian Tour, International Supermodified Association, Northeastern Midget Association, Valenti Modified Racing Series, and more.
