Who We Are

The Modified Tour Inc. racing series is a non-profit organization established to give the V-8 Modifieds in the Western Pennsylvania/Eastern Ohio area a chance to compete with one another for a higher purse structure and for a point fund for the scheduled events. Started in 1998 by Tim Engles, Lon and Pam Baker and Randy Myers the Modified Tour has had great success at bringing the local cars together at various speedways in Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and Canada.

To all BRP Modified Drivers, Teams, Fans, and supporters:

For Immediate release: Feb.13, 2014

To all BRP Modified Drivers, Teams, Fans, and supporters:

         

          The Modified Tour Inc. would like to inform all of the above that it is severing ties with World Racing Group/Dirt Car effective immediately.


Modified Tour, Inc. originally teamed up with D.I.R.T. under the control of Glenn Donnelly back in 2001. Since that time we have worked with D.I.R.T. in many ways, including car support at Eldora Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. Between the two entities working together we felt it had become a good fit for both parties and all teams involved. In 2010 the Modified Tour Inc. and DIRTCar/ World Racing Group entered into a three-year written contract.


At the end of the 2013 season DirtCar/World Racing Group notified the Modified Tour that it would not be honoring its obligation of the third year of the contract. 


          We the board feel that with the lack of respect that DirtCar/World Racing Group has showed toward us and our membership that we would be uncomfortable to continue in any relationship with them.


          We look forward to our continued working relationships with our other sponsors, partners and racetracks, to make 2014 and beyond even better.

Looking for Marketing Person:

Modified tour Inc., a non profit organization to promote special events for the Big Block Modifieds in the Northeast Pa. and Northwestern Ohio areas is in need of a marketing person or persons. Does not need a degree, but would be great for someone seeking a degree in the marketing field. Would be helpful if they understood the racing market and its nature. This position would consist of making contact with existing sponsors, and working to secure new ones. Work within your own schedule, ( about 2 hours per week) and report to the board at its regular monthly meetings. This is a volunteer position but expenses will be covered and there could be a % paid for all new sponsors. If interested in learning more contact Board Secretary Pam Baker by sending her an email @ baker2b@windstream.net Thank you
