On Saturday June 21, 2014 the "Truck”, along with a couple of Vintage Modified race cars, will be at Waterford Speedbowl; located at 1080 Hartford Turnpike in Waterford, CT.  The event is the Whelan Modified North Tour; only appearance at the 'bowl this season. The Mr. Rotor 161 will feature many of the top contenders in the world of Modified racing. The grandstands open to the public at 1pm,  Modified time trials are at 5pm and the racing program commences at 6:30pm.

The truck will be there with NEAR gear and displays of the famous individuals who have been inducted in the Hall of Fame for their racing exploits as drivers and owners; as well as promoters who made this type of racing a New England haul mark event.  Look for fast cars and close wheel to wheel excitement.  

Be sure to stop by and say "hi" to R.A. and Ric and take the time to learn about the rich history around our section of the racing world. While there, be sure to learn about the benefits of NEAR membership as a new member or renew or extend your membership for uninterrupted information found only in the newsletter.

On Friday, June 27, the HOF truck and boys will be at Stafford Motor Speedway in support of our static display of famous and vintage racing cars. Provided for your viewing pleasure and photo opportunities by members of NEAR, these machines each has a special story to tell. So take a moment and speak with the present owner and learn more about our racing heritage. 

You never know which Hall of Fame member will be there to autograph a special item just for you.  The event is the SK Light Modified Xtra Mart D. There will be charity racing with karts and a fireworks show at the conclusion of all racing. The Speedway is located at 55 West Ave in Stafford Springs, CT. So come on down and celebrate the start of summer and the end of the school year at two of Connecticut’s great racing facilities known for family fun.
