Those trying to make heads or tails of what will become of the 2013 weekly racing schedule at Thompson International Speedway were handed another possible clue on Thursday.
Officials from the Valenti Modified Racing Series posted on their Facebook page that the Sunday July 28 event they announced last week would take place has now been moved to Thursday July 25.
It means at least two known Thursday night events now scheduled at Thompson Speedway for the 2013 season.
Thompson Speedway management has been quiet about possible major changes to weekly racing at the track in 2013. In October track owner Don Hoenig said he wasn’t sure what the weekly racing schedule at the track could look like. Since then a schedule at the track for 2013 has been a mystery along with what the future holds for the possibility of the creation of a road course at the facility.
Hoenig also indicated in October that the track may look to change weekly racing from Thursdays to Sundays.
At least three dates have been agreed upon for NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour events to be held at Thompson International Speedway in 2013 according to sources close to the track and NASCAR.
One of those dates is Thursday Aug. 15. The track will also host the Whelen Modified Tour as part of its season opening Icebreaker weekend and its season ending World Series weekend.
The Valenti Modified Racing Series had previously announced three events for 2013 at Thompson. They had also announced a Sunday May 19 event and a Saturday Oct. 19 event.
Thursday’s announcement of the change of the July Valenti Modified Racing Series event to a Thursday seems to indicate the track is leaning toward continuing Thursday weekly racing at the facility.
Thompson Speedway manangement has said a 2013 schedule should be finalized within the next two weeks.
