UTICA-ROME SPEEDWAY ADDS RACE OF CHAMPIONS DIRT MODIFIED TOUR EVENT IN 2005

VERNON, NY- Utica-Rome Speedway and the Race of Champions Dirt Modified Tour have recently inked a deal that will bring the first year touring series to the famed Vernon oval in 2005. The combined Big Block/Small Block series will stop at the speedway on May 8 as part of the annual Mother's Day Special. A regular show of Sportsman, Pro Stocks, Pure Stocks, IMCA Modifieds, and Four Cylinder Super Stock will join the Modified special.

Utica-Rome Speedway will be 2nd stop of the Race of Champions Dirt Modified Tour, following Fonda's Ice Jam on April 9. Utica-Rome Speedway's version of the RoC event will see the combined Modifieds compete in a 66 ½ lap affair with $4,000 going to the victor. Also, the top finishing 358-Modified will receive a $500 bonus and a guaranteed starting spot in the 358-Modified event at the original Eastern States Weekend held every year at the Orange County Speedway.

The Race of Champion Dirt Modified Tour was created with the weekend racer in mind. With a short 10-12 race schedule, a limited amount of midweek show, and home track points going towards the overall title, a budget minded racer will have a legitimate shot a the title. With former DIRT employee Cory Reed as the Competition Director and Andy Harpell as the Administrative Director, the Race of Champions Dirt Modified Tour is in experienced hands. More information on the Race of Champions Dirt Modified tour can be found at www.rocdirt.com.

Utica-Rome Speedway will open its gates for competition on May 1 with a regular show of 358-Modifieds, Sportsman, Pro Stocks, Pure Stocks, IMCA Modifieds, and Four Cylinder Super Stocks. Gates will open at 3 p.m. with racing slated to go at 5:30 p.m. For more information on the upcoming season at the "Action Track of the East", log on to www.uticaromespeedway.com or call the speedway office at (315) 829-4557.
