Five States & Canada On Deck For Super DIRTcar Series

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. – Officials from the Super DIRTcar Series have announced the tour’s schedule for the upcoming season that will take big-block modified drivers up and down the East Coast.

Crown Jewels like the $50,000-to-win Billy Whittaker Cars 200 and the $25,500-to-win Mr. DIRT Track USA are joined on the schedule by a $10,000-to-win doubleheader at the Bristol Throwdown and the two-race Cavalcade Weekend at Weedsport Speedway.

It all starts in the sun at Volusia Speedway Park for the 50th anniversary of the DIRTcar Nationals. The Super DIRTcar Series Florida tour joins the February fray at Volusia on Tuesday, Feb. 9, to begin five consecutive nights of racing from Feb. 9-13.

Back north, on Saturday, April 10, Can-Am Speedway takes center stage for the first points-paying race of the season. The Thunder in the Thousand Islands 100 is set to pay $7,500 to the winner.

The Super DIRTcar Series will then shift gears to tackle Bristol Motor Speedway’s soon-to-be clay-covered high banks for the first time during the April 22-24 Bristol Throwdown. April 22 will serve as a practice day, with a pair of $10,000-to-win features to follow on April 23-24.

All of the action at Bristol is run with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars.

Not only will the winners be immortalized in the history of Bristol Motor Speedway and the Super DIRTcar Series, but they will also punch their ticket to a guaranteed start in the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 during NAPA Super DIRT Week in October.

Bridgeport Speedway follows up on Tuesday, May 4, with its own $10,000-to-win King of Big Blocks feature. The Super DIRTcar Series’ return to the new four-tenths-mile high-banked configuration is also a NAPA Super DIRT Week Qualifier.

Weedsport Speedway highlights Memorial Day weekend with the $7,500-to-win Heroes Remembered 100 on Sunday, May 30. On Memorial Day, May 31, Lebanon Valley Speedway goes big with a $13,500-to-win, 100-lap feature. As all $10,000-plus Super DIRTcar Series races do, the winner receives a guaranteed start in the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 in October.

Albany-Saratoga Speedway welcomes the series on Tuesday, June 22 and will be followed by the tour’s first race in Canada since 2019 at Cornwall Motor Speedway on June 27.  The next day, June 28, the series heads another leg up north to Le RPM Speedway in Quebec. The racy short track will send home a winner $7,500 richer.

Land of Legends Raceway in Canandaigua, N.Y., kicks off a busy July calendar on Thursday, July 1, with the Empire Super Sprints also in attendance for their annual doubleheader.

The series helps celebrate Ohsweken Speedway’s 25th anniversary season with a $10,000-to-win NAPA Super DIRT Week Qualifier on Monday, July 5.  Back across the border the next day, Tuesday, July 6, the big blocks will roar again at Ransomville Speedway.

On Monday, July 19, and Tuesday, July 20, the series goes back-to-back in Quebec. Autodrome Granby will host the series on July 19, with Autodrome Drummond next on July 20. Both features will pay $7,500-to-win.

Weedsport Speedway takes the spotlight on Sunday, July 25, when race fans celebrate big block modified racing with the Hall of Fame 100, which helps usher in the DIRT Hall of Fame Museum class of 2021.

The sights and sounds of the Orange County Fair filling the Middletown, N.Y., air on Thursday, July 29, means the Super DIRTcar Series is back in town for a $10,000-to-win NAPA Super DIRT Week Qualifier. DIRTcar officials are working on another race to pair with Orange County.

Last year was supposed to mark the first Super DIRTcar Series race at Thunder Mountain Speedway, but COVID-19 put a hold on that. Now, the Center Isle, N.Y., track is ready for the series after a successful year of DIRTcar 358 Modified and DIRTcar Sportsman Modified sanctioning. This event is scheduled for Aug. 3.

Land of Legends Raceway will welcome the series back on Wednesday, Aug. 4, for the second time in 2021 to make a new doubleheader for the Super DIRTcar Series, both races pay $7,500-to-win.

September starts out huge with the series’ second visit of 2021 to Lebanon Valley Speedway. The $25,500-to-win Mr. DIRT Track USA has been well-defended by hometown hero Kenny Tremont Jr., who has taken the last two in 2018 and 2019.

Weedsport Speedway’s schedule culminates with the Cavalcade Weekend which features two days of big-block modified racing on Saturday, Sept. 11 and Sunday, Sept. 12. The features will pay $7,500 and $10,000, respectively, to the winners.

The Gerald Haers Memorial at Land of Legends Raceway returns on Saturday, Sept. 18, with a $10,000 plus-to-win feature. Another guaranteed starting spot in the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 will also be up for grabs.

The final NAPA Super DIRT Week Qualifier falls on Saturday, Sept. 25, at Albany-Saratoga Speedway for the Massive Malta Weekend, where the winner takes $10,000.

The return of NAPA Super DIRT Week and the $50,000-to-win Billy Whittaker Cars 200 on Sunday, Oct. 10 returns to Oswego Speedway.

In 2019, the Super DIRTcar Series championship came down to two unforgettable features at The Dirt Track at Charlotte highlighting the fan-favorite Can-Am World Finals. This year, the Can-Am World Finals are Thursday, Nov. 4, to Saturday, Nov. 6, featuring the Super DIRTcar Series, World of Outlaws Morton Building Late Model Series and World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars.
