Barre, VT and Naples, ME — American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series Officials announced today a new format for the SK Light Modifieds at Thompson Speedway throughout the rest of the 2023 season. The purse for the open-wheeled division has been increased to $750-to-win each event, up from the previously $350-to-win regular breakdown, with the number of laps also increasing to now 30 lap features. Because of these increases, the SK Lights will now pit in the infield of the 5/8-mile oval in the events to come for the ease of these teams and competitors and spectacular action for the fans at hand.
“We really wanted to bring the SK Lights to the level we believe they deserve,” said ACT managing partner Cris Michaud. “They’ve been extremely supportive of Tom (Mayberry) and I since we started promoting Thompson and we feel the time was right to elevate them.”
The new changes will be put in full force for the first Wednesday night midweek event at Thompson Speedway on June 21st. The opening summer season event presented by Twisted Tea will have one of the most spectacular billings of the season. The SK Light Modifieds, Limited Sportsman and New England Supermodified Series are all going for 30 lap feature events along with the Late Models and Mini Stocks plus the first 50 lap Dash for Cash for the Thompson Outlaw Open Modifieds!
