The North State Modified Series is a traveling modified auto racing series that competes at facilities from Central and Northern California to Southern Oregon.

The North State Modified Series (NSMS) was formed in 2014 by long-time racer and car owner Jeff Stephens of Rio Linda, California, and 2003 Auto Racing Promoters of the Year, Bob & Nadine Strauss of Lucerne, California.

This series gives those men and women who want to race, but not at the same track on a weekly basis, the chance to compete at a professional level with full fields of race cars. Our competing modified drivers currently hail from the northern part of Oregon all the way to the southern part of California.

The North State Modified Series just completed its 8th season. During those eight years the series competed at 7 different California facilities including, Shasta Speedway (Anderson CA), Redwood Acres Raceway (Eureka, CA), All American Speedway (Roseville, CA), Madera (CA) Speedway, Stockton 99 (CA) Speedway, Lakeport (CA) Speedway and Ukiah (CA) Speedway. It also held its inaugural out-of-state event at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon in 2019.

In 2021 the North State Modified Series was sponsored by: Protect the Harvest, Lucas Oil, Hoosier Tires West, Naake Suspension, Sunoco Fuels, Five Star Bodies, Racer Bling, Scribner Plastics, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Economy Heating and Air, Frank’s Radios, Sullivan Construction and Masonry, Vogel’s RVs and McMurray & Sons Roofing.
