Modifieds looking to be added to October Event

We would love to add the “Modified”/ “Sportsman” class to our Tennessee State Championship Lineup Friday, October 25th.

I have received lots of feedback and Ideas from several drivers, and I feel there is interest in this idea.

The Rules for this Event would be as Follows:

Each Driver would pick there own rules

What I mean by this is at sign in, each driver would claim the rules they were using (Tazewell, Wartburg, or 411)
Once claimed you must stick to these rules all night 
This would be Kind of a battle between rules, may be pretty neat to see which tracks rules comes out on top…

Please Email, respond on Facebook, MRM, or give us a call confirming you would be a competitor in this event.

I need to know a final count ASAP.. I Plan on releasing the Final Details of this October weekend by September 21st.
