roc_1.jpgThe mighty Race of Champions (RoC) Asphalt Modified Tour returns to the historic Holland highbanks on Saturday, July 6th for the Holland 100 along with a full NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing program. Last season, second generation driver Matt Hirschman from Northampton, PA passed “the Hotshoe” Chuck Hossfeld from Ransomville, NY to pick up the victory.

Joining the RoC Modifieds will be the Getzoni Nationwide Insurance NASCAR Pro Modifieds, McClurg Auto Group NASCAR Late Models, Bank of Holland Chargers and 4 Cylinder Hornets. The top two (2) finishers in the Pro Modified feature will guarantee themselves a top 12 starting spot for the RoC Sportsman 100 at the Oswego Speedway on Friday July 19 as part of the 63rd SUNOCO Race of Champions Weekend.

The Pro Modified feature will be a non-handicapped event. “What this means is that any area team can come in and compete that night with a draw and re-draw fro the feature position format” stated RoC Tour Director and Promoter Andrew Harpell. “Drivers will be required to have a temporary ten day NASCAR license for this Pro Modified/Sportsman show at a cost of only $50” Harpell continued. “Pro Modified/Sportsman teams can run both the RoC 100 and Pro Modified events but must have separate cars” Harprell added.

The RoC Tour Holland 100 will also see a purse increase. “Teams will be running for a minimum of $400 to take the green flag. In addition, Mike Piscitello and Rob Laskowski have once again put together a huge lap fund program. Also this year, fan and Modified supporter Jim Schaefer will again distribute $1,000 of his own money to the top three finishing teams with the winner receiving $500, second $300 and third $200. In addition, Emerling Chevrolet will sponsor the qualifying events and will award each heat winner $200” stated Harpell.

“It is great to once again be hosting a tour stop for the Race of Champions Modified Tour here at Holland” says Director of Public and Media Relations Steven Petty. “It will be a great night of racing for all our weekly divisions as well as the mighty Mods” Petty continued.
