I was up at Thompson this weekend for the World Series.

We left before the WMT race because it's really not that great.

I don't see modifieds often, so I enjoyed this one but from the small amount of views of the crowd, it looked sparse.

What's the difference in the world series cars vs whelen?

World Series is just the whole weekend event, it's capped off by the WMT season finale.

They probably would, yes. We have Mod Lites in the UK now, racing under the guise of UK Modifieds. They are pretty good on the dirt.

They're essentially re-skinned Legends cars.

They run them at Waterford, my cousins won championships in them there in the mid/late 00's. They run the little oval on the front straight at Stafford as well.

Matt :
Sadly more tracks have vanished in Conn than are left . Bridgeport Speedway , Savin Rock in West Haven , Danbury and Plainville all gone

Stafford use to be a Dirt Track Thompson seemed like it ALWAYS needed upgrades

Back in the late 60's early 70's I was the Track Liason official at Charlotte Motor Speedway now called Loews . A very interesting career choice to say the least .Track updates , Condo units on turn 1 , Putting in the Motorsports Industrial park behind the speedway . You would never know it now but for years that Industrial Park location use to be a Land-fill for Charlottes Garbage . Talk about Construction PREP work

Back to Conn there also use to be a 1/5 mile paved track in Stratford Conn that use to run T Q Midgets ? at the time late 50's ? I also seem to recall possibly back in the 90's the TQ's use to run at Stafford ?

Lastly my father use to be a General Contractor in Shelton I remember him coming home one evening and announcing he had just purchases "The Race Track Property "
Which track are you talking about I said ? unbeknownst to me in Shelton back in the 30's there use to be a 2/3 mile dirt track I had never heard about that . Apparently they ran dirt open wheel " Champ " cars or what ever was the top cars of that era .It shut down at the start of WW2 and never re-opened . You could not see the track from the present location at the time as many trees blocked the view . You could actually see where the track was by the rotted wood fence posts . It did have slight banking to it but sadly where the track actually was I remember lots of erosion and actual trees growing Oh Well !! I did find a small sign very faded paint I have it hanging in my Man Cave

Thompson got it's upgrades a few years ago, including a completely new road course that uses part of the oval before going outside of it.

Mods: anyway we can drop the 2016 from the title? Think we can discuss circle track racing from everywhere and every year here.

I know we are thawed out yet up north and I didn't get too much into the 2016 seasons, but I'm going to try again this year.
