Dates Announced In 2010 Mr. DIRTcar 358-Modified Championship Series

Weedsport, NYNovember 30, 2009 — By Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing Northeast Series PR Director

A trio of high-paying 150-lappers for Small-Block point chasers highlights the Hoosier Tire-VP Racing Fuels Mr. DIRTcar 358-Modified Championship Series currently locked into place for the 2010 race season.

Back-to-back blockbuster shows at autodromes Granby and Drummond in September not only offer each winner a $10,000 top prize, a $5,000 bonus will be tacked on for any driver able to sweep the weekend DIRTcar doubleheader in Quebec. Returning stateside, the traditional Super DIRT Week spectacular on the Syracuse Mile in October remains the richest event of the year for 358-Modified teams, with first-place awarded a $20,000 jackpot.

“We’re just one weekend away from completing the entire schedule, giving Small-Block racers plenty of time to make their own plans for next season,” remarked Joe Skotnicki, DIRTcar Racing Northeast Director of Competition & Track Sanctioning. “It’s already solid with more focus put on weekly competition during the summer before going full speed ahead after Labor Day.”

Fulton Speedway leads off the ’10 agenda with a Big-Block/Small-Block tour twin-bill on April 9-10, followed a week later by Can-Am Motorsports Park’s own Mr. DIRTcar twin tour special featuring 358-Modified and Sportsman on April 17. Then its off to Canada as Merrittville Speedway in Thorold, Ontario (May 24) and Autodrome Edelweiss in Hull, Quebec (July 1) host the remaining summer shows.

Small-Block teams kick off Labor Day Weekend north of the border at Cornwall Motor Speedway (Sept. 5) with the lucrative Granby/Drummond double taking center stage Sept. 10-11. Rolling Wheels Raceway Park (Sept. 24) closes out the month the final Friday in September.

October opens with successive Super DIRT Week specials scheduled at Can-Am (Oct. 6), Brewerton Speedway (Oct. 7) and Rolling Wheels (Oct. 8) before the New State Fairgrounds attracts the top Small-Block stars in the Northeast for a fourth straight show featuring the $20,000-to-win 150-mile main on Oct. 9.

The curtain drops Oct. 16 when Brockville Ontario Speedway hosts the 2010 Mr. DIRTcar 358 finale as part of the 2nd Annual DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals, with Big-Block Modified, Sportsman and Pro Stock classes filling the autumn card in the City of the Thousand Islands.

Competition Director Joe Skotnicki can be contacted at 704/796-4566 to field questions and address any concerns regarding all 2010 series schedules as DIRTcar Northeast’s 35th consecutive season of racing gets underway.
