With the 2024 season fast approaching, so too does the exciting return of the Wall’s Ford Platinum Late Model Series at White Mountain Motorsports Park. After growing to be one of the most popular events for the Foley Oil & Propane Late Models with dozens of American-Canadian Tour teams joining from across the region, Wall’s Ford Platinum Series is set to be a showdown of former champions in its third year this summer.

After being announced as a finalist for the national Kulwicki Driver Development Program (KDDP) this spring, inaugural Wall’s Ford Platinum Series champion Derek Gluchacki has made it his intention to regain the throne in 2024 but admits the chases for the national KDDP points puts on some added pressure. “After sweeping all three races and the first championship, it’s definitely going to be tough to come back and repeat that,” said Gluchacki, “and with the Kulwicki Program this season we have to run up front and win races. There is a lot of added pressure but we’re up to the challenge.”

The one thing standing in his way is the most successful campaigner at White Mountain last season; Kasey Beattie. The St. Johnsbury, Vermonter is headed on the road this year to hunt down the American-Canadian Tour Rookie of the Year honors with CSV Motorsports, but has also circled the four Wall’s Ford Platinum races on his 2024 schedule. “Racing with the best competitors on the ACT Tour will definitely prepare us for defending our crown at White Mountain,” said Beattie. “Honestly the increased competition excites me more than anything, I love to compete and leave it all out on the track. Some nights we win, some nights we lose – That’s what makes it fun!”

Round One for the Wall’s Ford Platinum Series goes off with the Spring Board 100 on Saturday, May 25 as part of a busy Memorial Day weekend for the ACT sanctioning body. Round Two finds itself on one of White Mountain's most anticipated weekends of the season as one half of the Twin 100 New Hampshire Governor’s Cup alongside the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series on July 27. The Wall’s Ford Series returns on Labor Day weekend for the Leaf Peepers 100 and wraps up on September 14, just one week before the fan-favorite Fall Foliage spectacular on September 21.

Thunder in the Mountains returns for the 2024 season on HK Powersports Opening Day, Saturday, May 18 with the Late Models, Strictly Minis, Dwarf Cars, Kids Division, Mini Late Models and the R&R Street Stock Open Series! Opening weekend also features the Pro All Stars Series doubleheader on Sunday, May 19 that includes the first leg of the all-new ACT Tri-State Flying Tiger Series, New England Supermodified Series and PASS Modifieds!
