On behalf of the Moranbah Speedway, Modified Sedan champion, Ryan Harris is extremely pleased to announce that the “Basin Industries” Coal Country Modified Production Cup will be held at Moranbah Speedway on 22nd June.

Not only have Moranbah Speedway put in a massive amount of effort bringing the venue back up to one of the leading facilities in the state, but after hosting a successful Junior Sedan Queensland Title and now being awarded the rights to host the 2014 Queensland Modified Production Title over the June Long weekend in 2014, Moranbah Speedway have decided to finish the financial year off with a bang with this big dollar show which will attract drivers from all over the state.

Not only will this event be paying great tow money, this event is also going to pay $2000 to win and on top of the tow money, every sing…le competitor that takes the green flag is guaranteed a further $100 even if you only make the B Main.
