This opened wheeled division that became the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour from Featherlite Modified Series in 2005, oversaw expansions from the Northeast America to the Midwest regions. Using tabular chassis cars that are manufactured by Chassis Dynamics, Troyer Engineering, Raceworks and Spafco, these vehicles are substantially different than the ones that are used in Sprint Cup Series. With the front-wheelers’ suspension completely exposed, these cars are fabricated with sheet metal that makes them approximately 23 inches wider and 11 inches shorter than Sprint cars. Generating power from V-8 small engine with a four-barrel carburetor, each car has the capacity to produce output that varies from six hundred and twenty five to seven hundred horsepower.
Created in 1947, as a part of NASCAR’s divisions the Whelen Modified Tour’s debut race was sanctioned in 1948. The racing event took place in 1948 at the Daytona Beach racing track, which was won by Red Byron. At that particular point in time the stock cars that were used were called Post-World War II Modifieds that allowed little modification, mainly substitution of car parts with truck parts. This pattern carried on till the sixties era, after which companies such as Chevrolet came forward with its 1957 frame. This initiated a trend that promoted massive modification that included technical innovations such as fuel injections, big-block engines and 18 inch rear tires with greater width that allowed these vehicles to move faster on shorter speedways.
The Whelen Modified Tour is known to use the standard NASCAR points system in which the drivers are awarded points after each race ends. However how these points may be awarded to each racer may vary from one race to another, depending on the skills they showcase. The first three position holders of each race are rewarded forty three, forty two and forty one points, respectively. The car that finishes in the last place i.e. the 43rd place is awarded one point after which as the positions increase the points are increased by one as well. At the end of the race, the winner receives three bonus points while all the drivers who lead even one lap during the entire race are awarded a bonus point each.
