Austin Beers of Northampton, Pa., will be seeking his first victory against a competitive field that will include his neighbor and Modified driving superstar, Matt Hirschman.
“We are ready to get going,” stated Austin Beers, who is the defending Race of Champions Modified Series Champion. “The Series is as competitive as it gets. I’ve had the opportunity to go to different Series now and the Race of Champions Series is very challenging. It’s hard to win and maintain running well. We’re looking forward to the challenge and kicking things off at Chemung on Saturday afternoon.”
Hirschman and Beers finished one-two in the Series most recent visit to Chemung in August of 2021.

Keeps things underneath you or you can get into trouble. We are going in with the same formula this weekend and hope we are around at the end to have a chance at getting the win.”
