October 16, 2021…..Marble, PA……. Chad Brachmann came into the weekend five points behind Rex King, Jr. for the BRP Modified Tour series championship and after Friday night’s preliminary heat races went into the feature event on Saturday night just one point back. The feature money was boosted from the Stampede payoff of $3,000 to a cool $4,000 by two gentlemen that love Big Block Modified racing, Tim Thoma of Thoma Meat Market and Gary Heeman of the Dirt Track Network and Lernerville Speedway PR Director.

 

By the luck of the draw on Saturday afternoon Brachmann drew the pole starting position and Rex King, Jr. pulled eleventh. Also on Saturday afternoon the eleven drivers that carried perfect attendance throughout the season participated in a Reverse Draw in front of the fans for a brand new 2022X Bicknell Chassis sponsored by Bicknell Racing Products of St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada. The winner of this brand new chassis was none other than Rex King, Sr. Congratulations to Rex on being the winner of the 2022X Bicknell Chassis.

 

Starting on the pole, Brachmann with Jeremiah Shingledecker to his outside led the twenty-eight car starting field to the drop of the green flag and it was Shingledecker who led the first lap before the caution flag flew for Colton Walters who stopped on the speedway. On the restart, Shingledecker once again led the field to the green and sprinted out to a four car lead, but the red flag would be displayed on lap four for Ryan Riffe who flipped his mount in turn two.

 

Once back underway Shingledecker who led into the first turn came off the second turn high and slipped just over the back stretch. He was able to come back on the track in fifth place, but something happened with the car and the next lap he exited the track slowly with problems with the car. From the lap four restart until the checkered flag flew Brachmann held the lead he inherited from Shingledecker and went the rest of the distance to pick up his sixth win of the 2021 season with the BRP Modified Tour and the $4,000 top prize money. Meanwhile, Rex King, Jr. was advancing his positions from the eleventh starting spot and wound up in third which gave Brachmann the 2021 BRP Modified Tour series championship by one point.

 

Finishing behind Chad Brachmann in the race was Tonawanda, NY driver Matt Farnham followed by Rex King, Jr., Garrett Krummert and Rex King, Sr. Rounding out the top ten were Eric Gabany, Brad Rapp, Greg Martin, Dave Murdick and JR McGinley.

 

This concludes the 2021 BRP Modified Tour schedule and our next event will be the BRP Modified Tour Awards Banquet which will be held on November 13, 2021 at the Brandy Springs Banquet Center in Mercer, PA. The top 20 drivers will be honored and will receive point fund money and contingency awards for their performance throughout the season.

 

2022 will be our 25th Anniversary season and we are working on some special things that should take place next season, so please keep your eye on our Facebook page or the website at www.themodifiedtourinc.com
