What’s that rumble? Hear engines revving in the distance?

That sweet sound is DIRTcar race cars, and Tuesday, July 6, at 11:30 a.m. you won’t want to miss a chance to see them roll through the streets of downtown Syracuse. In less than two weeks the heart of Salt City will come to life as the green flag drops for the rarest of road races.

Take a hop down Clinton St. and begin to feel the rumble under your feet … skip across town and grab a quick glimpse in front of Armory Square … then jump over to the Farmer’s Market where everything will suddenly come into clear view.

At lunchtime the only craving will be for the clamor of Big-Blocks motoring downtown as appetites are filled with a fine-tuned fleet of race cars.

History waits for no one and you don’t want to miss a chance to see DIRTcar race cars on the streets of Downtown Syracuse. DIRTcar All-Star Weekend is July 15-16-17 … let the countdown begin.
