Bullring Bash Unveils Unique Modified Race Format for 2019 Events
Attleboro, Massachusetts (December 14, 2018) — Today, the Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge officially unveiled its event format for its three 2019 rounds. Each Modified event will feature a combination of qualifying races to set a grid of up to 24 cars, with a 125-lap main event split into three segments that will determine each overall Event Champion.
“What truly sets the Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge apart from other modified promotions is our event format,” said Bullring Bash founder Josh Vanada. “We’ve devised a race format with plenty of punch—one that will provide fans with constant excitement and force drivers to be up on the wheel every lap. We can’t wait to get the excitement started with our first event at White Mountain Motorsports Park in June!”
The Modifieds will be segmented into a number of equally sized Qualifying Races based on the amount of entries. Multiple cars from each of these 12-lap Qualifying Races will advance directly to the Main Event, with the rest of the field going to a 15-lap Last Chance Qualifier to fill the remaining spots on the grid.
From there, the field will run a 125-lap Main Event broken up into three Segments of 50, 50, and 25 laps. Points will be rewarded on a reverse scale after each Segment, with one point to the winner, two points to second, and so forth. After all three Segments are completed, the driver with the lowest amount of total points will be crowned the Event Champion.
In addition, a number of inversions will keep the action interesting and facilitate passing opportunities. In the Main Event, the starting order for Segment 2 will be determined by inverting all lead lap cars after Segment 1. Finally, the starting order for Segment 3 will be determined by fastest lap times for all remaining lead lap cars from Segment 1.
Each event will stand alone from all other events on the calendar, with no point fund or point system. The standalone event system enables officials to provide the teams with prize money and products during the season when they need them, instead of at the end of the year.
The first two events of the 2019 Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge will take place at White Mountain Motorsports Park on June 16 and August 10. A visit to Thunder Road Speedbowl on September 14 will complete the inaugural Bullring Bash calendar. Further announcements on sponsorships, event purses, and more will be made in the coming weeks.
