The snow is finally melted and Monadnock Speedway is set to welcome the veterans and rookies to the high banked 1/4 mile track in Southern NH. The speedway will officially open the gates for their annual Test and Tune session on Saturday, April 12th from Noon to 5pm.
This is an opportunity for all competitors to shake down their race machines from a very long winter, fill out registrations, purchase NASCAR licenses and tires prior to the season opener. The pit gates will open at 10am on the Test and Tune session. General Admission is free on the Test and Tune event where the fans can check out the 2014 competition.
The management is very excited for the season to come as the NASCAR feature division, the Sportsman Modifieds, has grown and is expected to be a full field weekly. There are atleast five rookies joining the division along with new competitors coming from other tracks making Monadnock Speedway their hometrack. It will be a very challenging field, as new talent will join the already seasoned field of veterans. The other NASCAR divsions also is expected to see growth as quite a few Young Guns have moved up to the NASCAR divsional ranks.
The speedway has also announced a few changes for the 2014 season. The Lightning Stocks, Thunder Stocks and Young will now compete in heat races compared to drawing for feature starting positions as they have done in the past. This change will give all the competitors more track time while placing them in the regular race procedures as all the NASCAR divisions follow.
The 2014 season opener is scheduled for Saturday, April 19th with racing at 5pm. The traditional Bond Auto Parts 100 will feature the Valenti Modified Racing Series, all the speedway's NASCAR Whelen All American Racing Series divisions along with the Pro 4 Modifieds. The pit gates will open at 11am with practice starting at 2pm.
