Thompson, CT -- American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials have announced the purse structure, rules, and other information for a trio of open shows at the 58th World Series of Speedway Racing. High-paying single-day events are planned for the Tour-type Modifieds, 350 Small Block Super Modifieds, and ACT-type Late Models on the Saturday portion of the 18-division card.

World Series promoters Cris Michaud and Tom Mayberry have posted more than $26,000 in awards for the Tour-Type Modified Open on Saturday, October 10. Whoever triumphs in the 75-lap main event will cash a $5,000 winner's check. Everyone who takes the green flag receives a minimum of $500 to start.

The event is open to cars that fit the rule sets of the Modified Racing Series, Race of Champions Modifieds, Tri-Track Open Modified Series, or Stafford Open Series. SK Modifieds may also compete using any carburetor. The entry fee is $50 for entries postmarked by October 1 and $100 for entries sent after that date.

All entrants are required to run Hoosier 1320 tires on the left side and Hoosier 1330 tires on the right side. These tires must be purchased at the track from Hoosier Tire East. Teams may register up to six tires and need to have four registered tires on the car for both qualifying and the feature.

Both the 50-lap ACT-Type Late Model Open and the 30-lap 350 Super Modified Open will pay $2,000 to win and $300 to start. The Late Model feature has just over $14,000 in total awards while the 350 Super Modified feature offers nearly $13,000 in posted awards based on a 30-car starting field.

The Late Model event will use American-Canadian Tour and Thompson Late Model rules. The ACT rule set can be found at www.acttour.com/rules. Tires for the event must be purchased at the track on race day.

Small Block Super Modified cars must follow Oswego Speedway and Star Speedway rules including the engine rules. Teams will have a two different tire options. They can run Hoosier 10-inch 1057 tires on three corners with the Hoosier 1060 on the right rear or American Racer EC-83 tires on three corners with the American Racer EC-84 on the right rear.

Teams that choose the Hoosier option must buy tires at the track from Hoosier Tire East. For the American Racer option, teams can register up to six tires at $25 each. Four of the six registered tires must be on the car at the feature's conclusion.

The full payouts and other information that has been announced for all World Series open events can be found at www.thompsonspeedway.com or www.acttour.com/thompson-speedway. Entry forms for the Tour-Type Modified Open and 350 Super Modified Open are also available on these websites.

Thompson Announces Initial
Division List for 58th World Series
Track Also Adds SK Lights to September 2 Program
Thompson, CT -- American-Canadian Tour (ACT), Pro All Stars Series (PASS), and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park officials have announced the initial list of participants for the 58th World Series of Speedway Racing. Fifteen divisions and touring series have been confirmed for the event scheduled for Friday, October 11 through Sunday, October 13. Additional divisions could be added as discussions continue.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will once again return to the World Series for a 150-lap event. The NASCAR Modifieds have been part of every World Series since the touring era began in 1985, making this their 36th consecutive appearance at the prestigious event.

They are just one of several Modified events throughout the weekend. A Tour-Type Modified Open is scheduled and the 350 Supermodifieds will be part of the program. Thompson's Sunoco Modifieds and SK Light Modifeds are also slated for the World Series. The rest of Thompson's local divisions are on the card as well, including the Limited Sportsmen and Mini Stocks.

Local Thompson Late Model racers can take part in a non-point open event for ACT-type Late Models, which use the same rules as weekly racing. Additional open events are planned for 8-cylinder Street Stocks and the Vintage Modifieds.

Multiple other touring series are making the World Series part of their championship chases. The PASS Super Late Models, which have been a part of the last three Icebreaker weekends, are getting their first call for the World Series. The EXiT Realty Pro Truck Challenge and North East Mini Stock Tour have been World Series regulars in recent years and return in 2020.

Last but not least, the Senior Tour Auto Racers Modifeds and STAR Sportsmen will compete at the World Series. Along with the Vintage Modified Open, it gives fans three chances to see the cars of yesteryear take to the 5/8-mile oval once again.

In other news, officials have added the SK Light Modifieds to the Thompson 150 on Wednesday, September 2. They join a card that also includes the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Sunoco Modifieds, Late Models, Limited Sportsmen, and Mini Stocks. Qualifying begins at 5:00pm with features starting at 6:00pm. Advance tickets are available now at happsnow.com.

All divisions and series that are confirmed for the World Series and/or Thompson 150 are invited to take part in a Thompson Speedway open practice on Wednesday, August 19. Teams are asked to email cris@acttour.com or pass1tm@gmail.com if they are attending so officials can plan accordingly.

The tentative practice day plan is to open the pits in the late morning with practice throughout the afternoon. Exact times will be announced later this week. Pit admission is $25 per person.

PASS, ACT Reach Agreement
to Promote Multiple Events
at Thompson Speedway
Waterbury, VT and Naples, ME -- The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) have reached an agreement with Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park to promote multiple events at the Thompson, CT oval track this season. The events will be the first held on the historic 5/8-mile speedway in 2020 after multiple postponements and cancellations due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

The first event ACT and PASS are hosting at Thompson Speedway has been set for Wednesday, September 2 and features a visit from the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. They will then promote the 58th annual World Series of Speedway Racing from Friday, October 9 through Sunday, October 11. The organizations are currently in talks with track ownership regarding the 2021 season and beyond.

Full division lines-ups, times, and pricing for both 2020 events will be announced next week. Attendance will be limited to 25% of capacity per Connecticut state mandate. ACT and PASS plan to offer advance ticket sales for the September 2 event beginning Monday, August 10.

In addition, ACT managing partner Cris Michaud and PASS owner Tom Mayberry are hosting an open practice at Thompson Speedway on Wednesday, August 19. The practice schedule will also be announced next week.

Thompson Speedway is the oldest asphalt auto racing facility in the United States. It opened its doors in 1940 and was long known as the "Indianapolis of the East". The agreement with ACT and PASS will ensure that the oval remains open for another season.

"We're excited about this opportunity," Michaud said. "The ACT Tour was part of the World Series the last five years, and we were always impressed with the facility and with the racing there. We're looking forward to working with the local teams and touring series that have made Thompson their home and putting on a great show for the fans."

"It's a remarkable race track," Mayberry added. "I spent a lot of nights on the backstretch with Don Hoenig watching the Modifieds and the local divisions. You can practically feel the history every time you're there. Being part of the Icebreaker for three years was one of the biggest stages PASS has ever raced on. We're glad to continue contributing to the legacy of such an important speedway."

For more information, contact the ACT at (802) 244-6963, media@acttour.com, or visit www.acttour.com or www.thompsonspeedway.com. You can also get updates on Facebook and Twitter at @ACTTour.
