The 2007 Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Tour schedule is set for the upcoming campaign. The fourteen race schedule will take place among eight different facilities in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. The opening event is slated for Oswego Speedway on Sunday, May 13th.
The 2007 RoC Asphalt Modified Tour schedule will certainly keep the Modified teams busy during the upcoming season. The fourteen race tour will again be broken into regions with a possible twist being announced in the breakdown of those regions in the weeks to come. The regions have yet to be finalized due to the possibility that additional dates at the Lancaster Raceway Park could be forthcoming.
"We have worked very hard on putting together a tremendous schedule for our race teams and fans" commented Tour Director Andrew Harpell. "We had hoped to release the schedule some time ago but due to some unforeseen date changes we had to hold the release." He added, "Our regional breakdown is important and we will have that finalized very shortly, we don’t want to discount the value of the breakdown by releasing it prematurely."
A tentative schedule was released in January and the initial response was very positive. The addition of Spencer Speedway to the RoC tour has created a lot of excitement for teams that compete there on a weekly basis. For several of those teams the overall R.o.C title has now been put within their grasps. The 100 lap event is sure to be a fan favorite.
Last year the RoC teams were slated to return to Wall Township Speedway for the first time in two years. Unfortunately rain put the halt on that event in 2006 but there has been plenty of anticipation for this years 100 lapper at the historic oval.
Wyoming County International Speedway has added a second date to their calendar for 2007. The popular western, New York oval always puts on one of the best shows on the tour. This year should be no different.
The following is a listing of the complete schedule: Sunday, May 13th Oswego Speedway (75); Saturday, May 26th Oswego Speedway (100); Saturday, June 2nd Chemung Speedrome (75); Saturday, June 9th Mahoning Valley Speedway (75); Sunday, June 17th Wyoming County International (75); Saturday, June 23rd Wall Township Speedway (100); Saturday, June 30th Lancaster Raceway Park (75); Friday, July 6th Spencer Speedway (100); Sunday, July 15th Wyoming County International (75); Saturday, July 21st Oswego Speedway (75); Saturday, August 18th Mahoning Valley Speedway (75); Friday, August 31st Oswego Speedway (125); Sunday, September 9th Thompson Speedway (75); Saturday, September 22nd Oswego Speedway (200 Sunoco RoC).
