Thompson Speedway Drops Outlaw Open Modifieds, Elevates Thompson Sunoco Modified Track Championship Division

Barre, VT & Naples, ME — Following several discussions over the past weekend, American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials have made the decision to drop the Outlaw Open Modifieds from the Thompson Speedway schedule for the foreseeable future and have moved to elevate the Thompson Sunoco Modified division and Thompson track championship divisions.

With the decision, the Outlaw Open Modifieds are effectively cancelled for the remainder of the 2024 season. Moving forward, PASS and ACT officials have increased the purse structure for the Thompson Sunoco Modifieds to a $3,000-to-win, $400 to start model, a $16,000 weekly purse to 25 starters, and increased their feature events to 50 laps. The Tour-type Modifieds will return to Thompson with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour events on Wednesday, August 14 and Sunday of the Sunoco World Series and with the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series Constantine Paving & Sealing 75 on Friday of World Series weekend.

“What we saw on Thursday was a committed fan base supporting our efforts to keep Thompson Speedway alive,” said PASS president Tom Mayberry. “Unfortunately, there is just too much to choose from when it comes to open Tour-type Modified racing and it’s flooded these teams’ schedules.”

“We thought we had the momentum with the Open modifieds at the end of last year but it hasn’t continued into the weekly plans we have at Thompson this season,” said ACT managing partner Cris Michaud. “With the support of the fanbase, and our weekly teams, we’ve chosen to put these funds toward a growing Thompson Sunoco Modified division and elevate the track championship chase.”

Thursday Night Thunder is back at Thompson Speedway in just two weeks on Thursday, June 27 headlined by the $3,000-to-win, 50-lap trophy dash for the Thompson Sunoco Modifieds! Along with the Thompson Sunoco Modified 50-lapper, the Late Models, AZ Roofing SK Light Modifieds, Street Stocks and Mini Stocks are back in action on Thursday, June 27 with a 6:00pm Post Time!
