The road to recovery following a global pandemic has been a rocky one, but for the Midwest Pro Modified Series, the freeway is getting much smoother. Hot off of a successful launch in Tulsa, Ok., the doorslammer series is headed into the Texas Motorplex with plenty of momentum.
“We made a lot of changes to the Tulsa event to keep the racers and spectators safe, including an online registration process and time slip app as well as social distancing protocols,” said series founder Keith Haney. “I am extremely proud of our people for adhering to these and making it a great kick-off to our 2020 season.”
“Ennis is a staple race for the Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Pro Mod Series, and we could not be more excited to finally be back and show the great state of Texas what the MWPMS is all about. We were pleased to have 29 Pro Mods in Tulsa with competitors from all the other big race series including NHRA, PDRA, and NMCA with us.”
While it is not under prime conditions due to the regulations placed on our fan base, if Tulsa was any indication, the fans will flock to their living rooms to tune in to this amazing event,” added MWPMS Event Director Ellen Eschenbacher. “Fans will also be treated to the exciting NHRA Top Alcohol Dragsters and Funny Cars this weekend as well as the top Pro Mods, Top Sportsman, Top Dragsters, and Juniors in the country competing for a MWPMS victory as they build on their points for a season championship. As a bonus to the Juniors who are new to the series in 2020, a separate race on Friday and Saturday will culminate with a junior racer walking away with the coveted NHRA Wally on Saturday night.”
Aaron Wells, the 2019 Pro Mod Champion, will be on the grounds in Ennis in an attempt to defend his crown. The Wells family took the victory at Tulsa and is planning to hold that momentum in Ennis.
This weekend in Ennis, due to state applied restrictions, no fans will be allowed. Bangshift.com will again carry the event via PPV for $15 for the via this link: https://tickets.thefoat.com/TexasMotorplex/event-36479
