Reigning multi-time Race of Champions title holder Matt
Hirschman of Northampton, Penn., has confirmed that he
is the newest entry into what is even more clearly a
true All-Star Modified event. Hirschman has won the RoC

which he drove at the Waterford Speedbowl. Hirschman has
a stellar record of success at Star. He is also the

on Long Island, but the 2006 and 1996 Riverhead Track
Champion from Bohemia, L.I., N.Y., has confirmed that he
too will become a part of this very special event.
There will be a practice session on Friday evening for
Modified teams who would like to get more familiar with
quarter-mile oval. Qualifying begins at 4:30 on Saturday
with a one-lap time trial run to qualify the five
fastest for the $500 Exeter Decorating Dash For Cash.
Immediately following those time trials about 4:50 PM,
the Star "Outlaw" Late Models, Rookie Stocks and
Roadrunners will qualify. Then the Modifieds take to the
track for their heat races, possibly as early as 5:30
PM, followed by the "Dash for Cash", with feature events
and a Modified Consi (if necessary) to follow.
The New Hampshire Motor Speedway will be on hand as
well. Some lucky fans will walk out of the track on
Saturday with free tickets. Four tickets to their August

the Sylvania 300 Sprint Cup Series "Chase" event to be
held in September.
