Modifieds Announcement

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

Attention Modified Drivers,

 Red Walling (Battleground Speedway) and Seth Angel (Royal Purple Raceway) have held a meeting in regards to the low Modified car counts being split between the two tracks.

As expressed by many of the Modified drivers it would be more fun to race with more cars. The fans may also agree and it would help with the costs incurred by the tracks to have more cars competing.

Both parties have come to a short-term agreement that will make it fun for the racers, more excitement for the fans and should help eliminate some of the cost burden on both tracks.

Effective immediately, Battleground Speedway will suspend the Modified class.  Royal Purple Raceway will run the Modifieds as scheduled through the end of their weekly 2013 season on August 24th.  Battleground Speedway asks that all current Modified Drivers competing at BGS show their support for the class and RPR through this August 24thdate.  Battleground Speedway will announce the revised Modified schedule for the months of September and October prior to the August 24th date.

Battleground Speedway and Royal Purple Raceway are committed to work in a collaborative and cost effective manner to build & promote the sport we all love.
