By: Pam Baker

Marble, PA……9/6/2022…….. The final points night of 2022 will take place on Friday, September 9th at Michaels Mercer Raceway and will pay the winner of the race $2,500. Then on Saturday, September 10th following the Championship Banquet for the BRP Modified Tour which will take place on the speedway grounds in the afternoon, the highest ever paying BRP Modified Tour event will take place and will pay the winner a cool $7,000. This is all taking place to celebrate the 25th Silver Anniversary of the BRP Modified Tour Series.

The BRP Modified Tour was started back in 1998 with a vision that Tim Engles had to give local racers a chance to compete for higher purse structures and a point fund for all scheduled events. The BRP Modified Tour is a non-profit organization that was started by Tim Engles, Lon and Pam Baker and Randy Myers. The BRP Modified Tour has had great success at bringing regional cars together at various speedways in Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, West Virginia, and Canada. Three of the four founding members are still on the board of directors today.

Friday night at Michaels Mercer Raceway will find the point championship being determined between Erick Rudolph and Rex King, Jr. If Rudolph captures the point title it will be his third BRP Modified Tour Championship in 25 years. If Rex King, Jr. can take over the points lead it will find him taking home his fifth BRP Modified Tour Championship. Just 44 points separate the two going into Friday night, so it is either one of these driver’s championship at this point.

Saturday night will find the BRP Modified Tour cars running time trials to set the heat races for the big A feature. Those heat races will set the 24-car field for the feature. That purse will total $27,020 which will see the winner take home $7,000 and the starter going home with $500. There will then be a Non-Qualifiers feature which will find the winner collecting $750 and also it will pay $150 to start.

Provisional starters will be as follows:

Friday Night’s Winner – 1st provisional

Fastest Qualifier - 2nd provisional

2022 BRP Modified Tour Champion – 3rd provisional 

                                                                                         Team that travels the farthest distance. (Mileage will based off Google Maps from their driver’s license address.) Any tie will be determined by a pill draw. Lowest pill will be in the A feature. BRP Modified Tour directors will have the final say on                                                                        who qualifies for the A feature and who doesn’t. - 4th provisional.

In the case that any of these Provisionals overlap – Same person with 2 or more qualifications, one or more Provisionals will be dropped.


*$100.00 will be given to the Fastest Qualifier

*$100 for a New Track Record holder. (If a past record has been established.)

*The starting lineup for the feature will find the first 3/4 rows depending on the amount of heat races needed will be determined through an 8-lap Dash. The rest of the field will fall in according to heat race finishes. Any provisional will tag the field accordingly.

                                     It is going to be a great night of racing and the stars of the BRP Modified Tour will be putting on a show that the fans will talk                  about for years to come! Come out to Michaels Mercer Raceway to see history in the making!

A reverse draw was held in front of the grandstands with the 11 perfect attendance drivers eligible for the draw. It was announced at the banquet that Bicknell Racing Products will be back on board in 2022 with their sponsorship of a 2023X Bicknell Chassis to the drivers that have perfect attendance in 2022.

After the awards presentation was over Chad Brachmann had a prize for two different drivers in attendance and decided that the best way to determine a winner was by playing Bingo.So, the drivers were each given two bingo cards and they played Bingo. The first winner to call Bingo was Eric Gabany. He received a completed body kit worth $1,000 donated by MadSkins Racecar Bodies and Sunflowers of Sanborn both from Sanborn, NY. The second place winner was a tie between Brad Rapp and Dave Murdick. To determine the tie breaker, they drew another number and whoever had it on their card would be declared the winner.

Redraws will find the top three in each heat going to the redraw or a maximum of 12 positions or half the field.

 

The point system will see more emphasis on the features instead of the heat races. Heat race points will start at 6 and drop to 1 through all positions.

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.

On the restart the caution flag waved again for Eric Gabany as his motor expired after taking the lead in turn one. On the third try Rex King, Sr. jumped out ahead of JR McGinley and led the pack until lap seven when the caution flag waved once again for Steve Slater who spun in turn four.

 

On the single file restart, Rex King, Sr. once again took command of the lead with ninth place starter Chad Brachmann now sitting in second ahead of JR McGinley. Brachmann went to work on King,Sr. and the caution flag waved once again for Garrett Krummert after tangling with Tony Pangrazio and Steve Slater. Krummert retired from the event while the other two tagged the back of the field.The final restart on lap eighteen found King, Sr. and Brachmann going after one another and after some banging of the two cars Brachmann took the lead on lap twenty-seven but King, Sr. fought back and led the next three laps before Brachmann once again did a slide job in turn two to get the lead and went on to pick up the feature win.

 

Finishing second was Rex King, Sr. Brian Swartzlander who was involved in the initial start accident came from the back of the pack to challenge for second several times, but ended up third at the stripe. Fourth place went to JR McGinley with Rex King, Jr. making his way from the rear to finish fifth.

 

Heat races were won by Garrett Krummert and Chad Brachmann. The BRP Modified Tour was to venture to Hummingbird Speedway on Saturday night but early afternoon rains washed out the program. The next event on the schedule for the BRP Modified Tour will be Sunday, September 5, 2021 at Tri City Raceway.

Marble, PA ……. August 27, 2021 ……

 

The BRP Modified Tour completed their tenth race of the 2021 season on Friday night at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Brookville, PA. There were 18 cars on hand for the event and Mother Nature stayed away to let the cars compete in the 35-lap event.

 

Rex King, Sr. and Eric Gabany led the field to the drop of the green but before a lap was completed the caution flag waved as Rex King, Jr., Rick Regalski and Brian Swartzlander came together in turn four. On the restart the caution flag waved again for Eric Gabany as his motor expired after taking the lead in turn one. On the third try Rex King, Sr. jumped out ahead of JR McGinley and led the pack until lap seven when the caution flag waved once again for Steve Slater who spun in turn four.

 

On the single file restart, Rex King, Sr. once again took command of the lead with ninth place starter Chad Brachmann now sitting in second ahead of JR McGinley. Brachmann went to work on King,Sr. and the caution flag waved once again for Garrett Krummert after tangling with Tony Pangrazio and Steve Slater. Krummert retired from the event while the other two tagged the back of the field.The final restart on lap eighteen found King, Sr. and Brachmann going after one another and after some banging of the two cars Brachmann took the lead on lap twenty-seven but King, Sr. fought back and led the next three laps before Brachmann once again did a slide job in turn two to get the lead and went on to pick up the feature win.

 

Finishing second was Rex King, Sr. Brian Swartzlander who was involved in the initial start accident came from the back of the pack to challenge for second several times, but ended up third at the stripe. Fourth place went to JR McGinley with Rex King, Jr. making his way from the rear to finish fifth.

 

Heat races were won by Garrett Krummert and Chad Brachmann. The BRP Modified Tour was to venture to Hummingbird Speedway on Saturday night but early afternoon rains washed out the program. The next event on the schedule for the BRP Modified Tour will be Sunday, September 5, 2021 at Tri City Raceway. BRP Modified Tour board member Deanne Byers and race car driver Brad Rapp’s wife, Ashley have put together a Clash for Cash for the upcoming race at Tri City and have raised $1,075 for finishing positions 1-26 with each position receiving at least an extra $25 for each position as well as a few of the laps have $300 extra to be divided between them. They also have collected 13 different contingency awards valued at $100 each to be given away on Sunday night.

 

This will make the Labor Day weekend event at Tri City Raceway a special event for the drivers and one you won’t want to miss. The BRP Modified Tour would also like to welcome Epertherner Auto Wrecking of Grove City, PA back as a sponsor for the 2021 racing season.
