THOMPSON, Conn. — official track release — Thompson Speedway photo —
The Icebreaker on April 11-12 marks the opening of the 75th season at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (TSMP). To commemorate the occasion, TSMP will be holding a 75 lap race for their premiere NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, the Sunoco Modifieds.
The 75-lap feature will be the highest paying Sunoco Modified race in recent history, offering $2,000 to the winner, and $250 to any driver who takes the green. Teams will be allowed up to two tire changes, throughout the race.
The race will draw a strong field of Modified drivers, including NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour drivers Justin Bonsignore and Ted Christopher. Bonsignore was the winner of the NASCAR Whelen Modifeid Tour races at both the Icebreaker and Budweiser 150 last year. Christopher is one of the winningest drivers at TSMP, with 98 career wins, and will also be a strong contender for the win.
“We’re looking forward to being part of the 75 lap feature event for the Icebreaker,” said Justin Bonsignore. “This will be my first season running the SK Modifieds full time, and I’m excited to be running in the division. I’m also looking forward to being part of the 75th celebration, and the purse definitely helps to sweeten the pot. Hopefully we can put together a good car to win the race!”
