It was announced Tuesday night on Speed 51 radio that 10 races currently split between the NASCAR Whelen Modified and Southern Modified Tours will be televised on a tape delay basis in one-hour long programs on the Versus network. The programs will be produced by the NASCAR Media Group.

Some of the 10 races include races at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bowman Gray Stadium, Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, and both events at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The events at Atlanta and Charlotte will be run on the one quarter mile tracks primarily used by INEX Legends and Bandalero divisions.
