Sundance Vacations Speedway Announces $3500 to Win for Upcoming Tour Type Mod Event

St. Johns, Pa- Typically the season ending “King of the Mountain” event at Sundance Vacations Speedway is the biggest and most prestigious open wheel modified events on the East coast. The payout is nothing to sneeze at and the race is long and enjoyable for the fans. This season the speedway has decided to kick things up a notch and up the winnings for it’s 100-lap events this season, and that also includes this year’s “King of the Mountain” in October.


The first of several special extended lap races for the Tour Type Modifieds will kick off on Saturday, May 9 and the feature winner will pocket $3500, thanks to Global Risk Management and D&B Towing.


“This is just one of the ways to show the drivers our appreciation during this weak economy and the show will be one that the fans won’t want to miss”, said speedway promoter, Joe Callavini. “There’s a lot of great racing out there week in and out and the purse increase for the big shows should add even more competition to the current field of mods at our facility”.


The 100-lap races at the 1/3-mile asphalt oval have been more than exciting in the past. Last season’s champion, Rusty Smith, has secured wins, as has open wheel modified ace Matt Hirschman. Both are expected to be in attendance for the May 9 race.


Three-time modified track champion, Brian DeFebo is expected to be on hand to vie for the win, as is NASCAR Whelen favorite, Eric Beers.


There are plenty more 100-lap events scheduled at the speedway this season, including the annual “King of the Mountain”, which will be 150-laps with even a bigger prize footed to the winner.


Sundance Vacations Speedway is just minutes from Hazleton, Pa, located on St. John’s Road, between Routes 93 and 309. Grandstand admission for all regular events is just $10 for ages 11 and older (special shows may be have an increase in admission). Children 10 years of age and younger are admitted for free.
