Is Richmond, KY Raceway the “hotspot” to be for Modifieds this weekend too??

There will be history made for the “open wheel” world of Modifieds this weekend. Of course the race for Modifieds are big at #FALS Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Illinois for the annual “Prairie Dirt Classic” but also about 800+ miles east of there at Richmond Raceway in Kentucky. The “Beast of the East” is preparing to #UnleashYourInnerBeast as promoter Bill Lupinos quotes, with the fury of 800+ horsepower Modifieds on dirt for the first time at the 3/8th mile for a doubleheader weekend entitled the #SouthernSwing sanctioned by the DIRTcar Racing Renegades of Dirt National Modified Tour for the inaugural time.

That got me wondering, could we be seeing history in the making? Kentucky & the Richmond Raceway has been in a exciting “buzz” mode since the announcement of the track hosting this prestigious dirt open wheel entertainment back in March, now it’s finally here.

By the projections of possible pre-entries & feedback, we could possibly see this weekend’s event be one of the biggest ever for Kentucky in Modified dirt motorsports and for the Richmond Raceway. It all kicks off tonight with a $2000 to win program, headlined by the $3000 to win event this Saturday. There is a tremendous amount of word being spread that teams & competitors from the New York to the Carolinas, Kentucky to Virginia are coming. It’s exciting to know even the regulars of the track are not afraid & are prepared to go up against these national open wheel contingents. Bottom line anything can happen & history could be made. Promoter Lupinos believes his Richmond faithful could possibly be standing in VL one or both evenings.

Nothing compares to seeing the excitement LIVE in person, the action & atmosphere for a DIRTcar Racing Renegades of Dirt National Modified Tour event is second to none, however remember that FloSports part of their FloRacing Network will have coverage of the events at Richmond, KY Raceway just simply click link: to witness the action.
