Atlantic Modifieds Roll Into Miramichi Friday Night

Series Release/Photo by

Only 2 point races remain for the Atlantic Modified Tour going into Friday’s feature at Speedway Miramichi.

Point leader Mike Raeburn hasn’t had the best luck there in the past, only managing a few podium finishes since the re-opening in 2012. We expect his luck to finally change Friday. Another driver we’ll be watching is “Lightning” Larry Gulliver. Gulliver has been incredibly impressive since joining the tour, especially at this track. He’ll be a threat, considering he won the last event there in July.

The young drivers have been lighting up the ranks though. Ryan Messer currently holds 3 wins, but none at Speedway Miramichi. That could change Friday night. Springhill, NS’s Brandon Skidmore had an impressive run back in July coming in 2nd. Dustin Phillips is another young driver who is due to get a win soon.

Right in the middle of the veteran and the young guns is Cody Price. With two wins this season, Price will look to improve on his podium in 2013 and pick up his 3rd checkered flag to tie Ryan Messer.

Speaking of drivers due to get a win, this could be the night Robert Miner breaks through into victory lane. Miner has been on the doorstep of the top spot all season, including last weekend at Petty when he led with under 5 to go.

Hometown Favorite Doug Matchett will be seeing lots of 75 supporters in the stands as he tries to get another win to follow up his win from a season or two ago.

Expected entry list:

1 Ryan Messer- R
2- Tommy Betts- R
3 Ken Deveau
4 Brandon Skidmore
15- Mark McCully
17 Joe Hoyt
25 Mark Daye- R
42 Mike Phillips
