The Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series gets its 2021 season underway Saturday at Monadnock Speedway. Before the race, here are 10 Things to Know about the season opener.

- You can’t have a conversation about Open Wheel Modifieds and not mention Matt Hirschman, who is now a six-time series champion with the Tri-Track Modified Series. Hirschman is back with a target on his back in efforts to repeat as series champion.

- There will be seven races this season with stops at Thunder Road Speedbowl (VT) and Stafford Motor Speedway (CT) for the first time. Also, there will be stops at Waterford, Star, two races at Seekonk, and this weekend’s race at Monadnock Speedway (NH).

- Saturday’s Modified race will be a 100-lap contest.

- This will be the seventh race for the Tri-Track Modified Series at Monadnock. Samuel Rameau has won two of the last three shows at the venue. Chase Dowling won last August to score his second win at the track in the series. Other one-time winners include Craig Lutz and Matt Hirschman.

- The 2021 Tri-Track title fight wasn’t easy for Matt Hirschman. Chase Dowling won two of the last three races and cut the margin to 19 points by season's end.

- The Ronnies were shut out in 2021, but we can expect that they will be back in victory lane in 2022. Ronnie Silk and Ronnie Williams combined for seven top-five runs in 12 races but again couldn’t get that W.

- The big race in the middle of the season will be the SBM 125 at Star Speedway (NH). This year will be the 11th running of the race.

- Matt Hirschman has 14 career wins in the Tri-Track Modified Series.

- Watch all the action live on RacingAmerica.TV - You can catch all the Pro Trucks and Pure Stock action live. A majority of the Tri-Track Modified action can be seen on Racing America this season.

- In addition to Saturday, the cameras will be rolling on Sunday as well at Monadnock for NHSTRA Modifieds, Northeast Dwarf Cars, and Young Guns.
