roc.jpgThe Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Tour returns to the Holland Speedway on Saturday, July 6th for the Holland 100 along with a huge night of racing at the popular western New York facility. Last year Matt Hirschman recorded the victory in the 100 lap event. Qualifying action will get underway at 6 p.m. The Modified 100 is scheduled for 8:15 p.m.

Joining the Race of Champions Modifieds will be the weekly Holland Pro Modifieds, Late Models, Chargers and Hornets. The top 2 finishers in the Holland Pro Modifieds will not only earn guaranteed starting berths to the Race of Champions 100 at Oswego Speedway, they will also be guaranteed to start in the top 12 feature positions.

The Pro Modified 35 lap “Battle for Western, New York” bragging rights will see 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 for feature position format. Drivers will be required to have a temporary ten day NASCAR license for this Pro Modified/Sportsman show at a cost of only $50. Sportsman teams can run in both the Modified and Pro Modified/Sportsman events but must have separate cars.

The RoC Modified 100 will also see a purse increase. Teams will be running for a minimum of $400 to take the green. In addition, Mike Piscitello and Rob Laskowski have once again been putting together a huge lap fund program for the RoC Modified teams in competition. Once again this year avid fan and asphalt Modified supporter Jim Schaefer will again distribute $1,000 of his own money to the top three finishing teams in the 100 lapper with the winner receiving $500, second $300 and third $200. As always the RoC Modified Tour teams receive 5 bonus points for winning a heat race. At the Holland 100 Emerling Chevrolet will award each heat winner $200 as well!

Joining the Modifieds and weekly Holland Pro Modifieds will be the weekly Late Models, Chargers and Hornets. It will certainly be a huge night of racing action. Pit gates will open at 2:30 p.m. with grandstand gates opening at 4:30 p.m.

Racing gets underway at 6 p.m. with the RoC Modified 100 scheduled to take the green at 8:15 p.m. For additional information please phone the RoC offices at 607-775-5555 or the Holland Speedway offices at 716-418-RACE (7223).
