The North State Modifieds, presented by Protect the Harvest, return to the All American Speedway in Roseville Saturday for a 60-lap challenge against the NASCAR Jaws Gear & Axle Modifieds in the inaugural “Economy Heating & Air Modified Challenge.”

The last time the North State Modifieds, or NSMS, raced at Roseville was in July of 2019 where Santa Rosa’s Cameron Austin beat out Darrin Knight, Scott Winters, Darrin Sullivan and Jason Philpot for the win.

Both the North State Modifieds and the “Jaws” Modifieds will be running their own rules and tires, and will be awarded their own points.

Philpot, who previously raced with NSMS, now is the defending champion in the Jaws Series and is just coming off of a win at Ukiah Speedway.

In addition to the $1,000 to win the feature, Authority Heating and Air is putting up $250 to the leader on lap five with an additional $250 to the leader of the race on lap 55. And Lucas Oil continues with the Lucas Oil Dash for Cash that pays $100 to the winner and $50 to second place in this six lap event. Lucas Oil also pays tow money to the top competitors in the NSMS points battle.

Also competing the same night will be a Berco Redwood Late Model Twin-35, Riebes Auto Parts Super Stocks, F4s, Jr. Late Models, and Mini Cups/Bandoleros. The Riebes Auto Parts Trailer Bash closes out the night. Gates open at 5 p.m. and racing begins at 5:15 p.m.

The North State Modified Series would not be possible without the support of Protect the Harvest, Lucas Oil, Economy Heating & Air, Sullivan Construction and Masonry, Hoosier Tire West, Sunoco Race Fuels, Naake Suspension, Five Star Bodies, Racer Bling, Mark & Sharon Baldwin, Scribner Plastics, Mort Houston, McMurray & Sons Roofing, Frank’s Radios, Supercuts, Vogel’s RVs and Authority Heating & Air.
