Toledo, Ohio—March 18, 2016: Officials from the Midwest Super Modified Association (MSA) and Toledo Speedway have teamed together to present the “Glass City Nationals” for the Super Modified portion of the 16th Annual “Fastest Short Track Show in the World” at Toledo Friday evening, June 10. The MSA event will feature a 50 lap main event, with $4000 posted to win the race and $700 to start.
The event, an open-wheel tradition at the Glass City oval, will also see the return of All American Coach of Sylvania, OH, Hemelgarn Racing and Super Fitness as the title sponsors.
