The Moonshine Modifieds will race on 10″ Hoosier F-45 scuffs to keep the cost to the competitors down with the option of 8″ or 10″ wheels.
“Modifieds have been a big part of the history of Franklin County Speedway,” said track promoter Langley Austin. “While it’s no NASCAR Modified tour, it’s the next best thing and will certainly entertain the fans just as much.”
Rules for the Moonshine Modifieds are set to be released in the coming days. Dates for the Moonshine Modifieds are Sunday April 27th, Monday May 26th, Saturday July 5th, Saturday August 16th, Sunday August 31st, Sunday September 14th and Saturday October 4th.
“We’re going to run the Modifieds as much as possible this season. We’re looking to work with the schedules of these Modifieds at other area tracks such as South Boston and Langley Speedway. We’ve found seven dates that should accommodate these cars very well and should easily give us a second top tier division.”
