Modified Return to Flat Rock for First Time in 11 Years (2007 winner Eric Lee, #5 at Flat Rock)
Rochester Hills, MI (Friday, December 28, 2018) - An already groundbreaking event for the 2019 season just got bigger. Motor City Racing Promotions is excited to announce that the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance will not only be accompanied by the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Model Series, but the ICAR Allstar Modified Tour will also join the blockbuster season opening event at Flat Rock Speedway on Sunday, April 28th.
An already excitement filled show for Championship Racing Association Powered by JEGS, is now going to be an event that fans simply can’t miss! The final weekend in April will feature the inaugural race for the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Model Series and it also marks the first ever appearance for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour to the ARCA sanctioned Speedway in Flat Rock, MI. Now, Modifieds return to the historic quarter mile oval for the first time in over 11 years.
The last time Modifieds took on Flat Rock Speedway was in September of 2007, when Eric Lee won the event. Lee set quick time with a 12.691 second lap time before going on to lead flag-to-flag in the 50-lap feature event, holding off challenges from Johnny Belott and Scott Coe.
“We are very excited to bring the Modified Tour to Flat Rock this spring”, exclaimed ICAR President, Dave Muzzillo. “Flat Rock’s quarter mile, semi-banked track configuration is great for exciting side-by-side racing action and the Modified drivers put on a show you won’t want to miss”.
Drivers and crews will have a practice day on Saturday, April 27th in addition to a practice session on Sunday morning to prepare for the big event. Sunday’s racing action will begin at 2:00pm. More details including gate times, ticket prices and more will be announced at a later date.
