LAKEPORT, Calif. – On Saturday, Sept. 12, the North State Modified Series, presented by Protect the Harvest, returns to Lakeport Speedway for race No. 2 of its 2020 schedule.

The event will be sponsored by Napa Lake Parts in Lakeport.

The series was shortened this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the final four races are confirmed and the promoters are looking forward to open-comp modified racing action.

The last event at Lakeport, held on July 18, was won by Ukiah’s Kyle Tellstrom.

Tellstrom leads in the points standings followed by Charlie Collins of Upper Lake, Lakeport Speedway 2020 modified champion Mike Sullivan of Kelseyville, defending NSMS champion Scott Winters of Tracy, and Darrin Sullivan of Kelseyville.

These drivers, along with the other top 15 contenders in the NSMS points standings will share in the $2,500 Lucas Oil Tow Money program when they sign-in to race at Lakeport.

In addition to the tow money, the purse has been increased courtesy of Competition Carburetion. Plus there will be a $100 Jason Belveal Long Tow Award for the team towing the most miles. And Competition Carburetion will award $50 to the driver who turns the fastest lap in the 60 lap feature event. The Lucas Oil Dash for Cash contenders run for $100 to win and $50 for second place.

Three-time NSMS champion Darrin Knight did not compete at the race in July but plans to be racing this weekend.
