MINERSVILLE, PA – After successful inaugural event in 2018, the Modifieds will once again go topless this Friday night June 14th at the Big Diamond Speedway in a $5000 to win 40-lap main event as part of Savage 61 night. The Insigner Performance Modifieds will race with no roofs, no windows or posts giving the fans a chance to see their heroes twisting the wheel as they maneuver around the smooth dirt track oval. Last year’s topless race produced a slugfest between two of Big Diamond’s best as Craig Von Dohren and Ryan Godown battled until the end with Von Dohren coming out on top. There is nothing to think this year’s race won’t produce the same hard-fought racing as last year with the strong field of modifieds that call Big Diamond Speedway home on Friday nights.
Rules for the modifieds are as follows: Door Post, Roof and Rear Windows must be removed with the top of the quarter panels remaining flat across.
