NASCAR - Whelen Modified Tour
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour is a stock car racing series owned and operated by NASCAR. The Whelen Southern Modified Tour, established in 2005, races in the Southeastern United States. The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour was established after the collapse of the Southern Modified Auto Racing Teams (SMART) organization as part of the breakup of the American Speed Association in late. Whelen Industries, who sponsors the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour agreed to sponsor the Southern Tour series, which became the Whelen Southern Modified Tour.
The Modified Tours have always been an integral part of NASCAR racing, dating back to the first race in NASCAR history in 1948. With a 2003 realignment and the move of the Goodys Dash Series, the old (pre 2003) Touring Division split into three separate divisions, The Elite Division, The Grand National Division and the Touring Division, which consisted of the Featherlite Modified Series.
|The Modified Division is NASCAR's oldest, and the only open-wheeled division. It features late model stock cars with a minimum weight of 2,900 pounds, maintaining a wheelbase between 101 and 105 inches, and using 350 to 358 cubic-inch engines. It was previously reviously known as the NASCAR Winston Modified Tour.||
