BREWERTON, N.Y. — For the first time in two years, the Super DIRTcar Series will visit New York’s Brewerton Speedway on Aug. 17 for the running of the Demon 100.
Larry Wight, Billy Decker and Chris Hile and more names for themselves at the Brewerton track. Now they, and the rest of the stacked Big Block Modified field, will look for glory on the biggest stage. With it will come a $10,000 payday and a guaranteed starting spot for the 49th NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week main event.
“We wanted to bring the Super DIRTcar Series back to one of its most vital home tracks,” said DIRTcar Racing CEO Brian Carter. “Brewerton Speedway has been a staple in the Central New York racing scene for decades and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the Super DIRTcar Series back to this fan-favorite track.”
In 1973, Will Cagle won the first series race at Brewerton Speedway. Then 20 years later Joe Plazek put his name in the record books to ignite a tradition of series races at Brewerton. Matt Sheppard, the seven-time Series champion, holds the Series record with five Brewerton victories.
The third-mile track produces exciting wheel-to-wheel action on a weekly basis with its tight entry into turn one and then fast, sweeping layout in turns three and four.
In addition to the Big Block Modifieds — with a purse in excess of $35,000 — the DIRTcar Sportsman will also be in racing in a 30-lap feature.
