Syracuse Super DIRT Week 358-Mod Qualifiers Set

Super Dirt WeekWeedsport, NYMarch 16, 2010 – By Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing Northeast PR Director

Kicking off in April, the schedule of qualifying races leading up to the Mr. DIRTcar 358-Modified Championship on Oct. 9 of Super DIRT Week XXXIX in Syracuse, N.Y. has been set with 21 tracks slated to host 60 events in 2010.

The current format guarantees that automatic starting berths for the headline “Salute To The Troops” 150 will be earned by drivers competing only in DIRTcar-sanctioned events, while time trials on the Syracuse Mile will remain open to any driver issued a DIRTcar License.

Last season Billy Decker successfully defended in the Syracuse SDW 358-Modified Championship on Saturday afternoon at the New York State Fairgrounds, matching his Super DIRT Week mastery in a Big-Block after scoring the fourth victory of his career in the 150-lapper. The Unadilla, N.Y. veteran inherited the lead when Frenchman Martin Roy made his pit stop with 99, then out-distanced another four-time winner Brett Hearn by 4.2-seconds to earn his eighth Modified feature win on the historic Syracuse Mile.

Qualifying procedures for the 31st Annual Syracuse 358-Modified Championship begin with time trials for all drivers including those already holding guaranteed starter status through the summer qualifying races plus the two DIRTcar 358-Modified Regional Championships. Preliminary clockings on Thursday, October 7 lock in the front three rows with the top-8 non-guaranteed drivers making Friday’s Twin 20s starting grids.

The summer-long qualifying trail culminates with the 150-lap Salute To The Troops 358-Modified Championship held during the 39th edition of Super DIRT Week, October 6-10. Guaranteed starters will be added from Super DIRT Week qualifiers at Can-Am Motorsports Park (Oct. 6), Brewerton Speedway (Oct. 7) and Rolling Wheels Raceway Park (Oct. 8), with the current top-12 in overall Hoosier Tire-VP Racing Fuels Mr. DIRTcar 358-Modified point standings and provisionals filling out the field. The Brewerton qualifier will be added to the Twin 20s line-up while Rolling Wheels qualifiers will be placed at the back of Saturday’s starting grid at Syracuse.
