Mini-series of events will run at Paducah, Tri-City, Federated I-55 and Quincy
CONCORD, N.C. – June 27, 2015 – A four-race DIRTcar Late Model River Festival Series will feature four consecutive nights of $5,000-to-win DIRTcar Late Model races Aug. 27 through Aug. 30.
Events at Paducah (Ky.) International Raceway and Quincy (Ill.) Raceways will now bookend two previously scheduled events at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., and Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach, Ill. The Paducah event replaces the rained out Summer Nationals race from Friday, June 26, while the Quincy event will include the completion of its Summer Nationals race that was postponed after heat races were completed on June 22.
The events at Paducah, I-55 and Tri-City will be run under the MARS DIRTcar Late Model banner.
First up will be the Chris Smith/World 50 on Thursday, Aug. 27, at Paducah followed on Friday, Aug. 28, at Tri-City Speedway; Saturday, Aug. 29, at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55; and finally the completion of the postponed DIRTcar Summer Nationals race on Sunday, Aug. 30, at Quincy (Ill.) Raceways, which will also have a weekly show on the card.
“The weather certainly has been rough on us the first half of this year’s Summer Nationals tour, but out of the rain we’re pleased to be able to create a mini-series reminiscent of DIRTcar Racing’s early days for those four races that were affected by Mother Nature,” said DIRTcar’s Sam Driggers. “We’re happy to work with all four tracks to provide the competitors with $5,000-to-win races in late August.”
The first three races will be complete shows, while the fourth and final race at Quincy will be the completion of that event from the Summer Nationals race night, when qualifying and heat races were already completed.
