STSS Rolls Into Outlaw Speedway

DUNDEE, N.Y. – The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco is set to compete tonight at Outlaw Speedway.

The Finger Lakes four-tenths-mile oval hosts round No. 3 of the River Valley Builders North Region for the STSS big-block/small-block Modifieds in the 50-lap ‘Outlaw Showdown.’

A purse totaling more than $26,000 is on the line, with $5,000 allotted to the winner.

The $15,000 River Valley Builders North Region championship chase officially hits high gear, as the STSS Modifieds run their second event in eight days. A two-week hiatus follows the ‘Outlaw Showdown’ before picking up steam again at Bloomsburg (Pa.) Fair Raceway on June 7.

Drivers To Watch

Mat Williamson

Williamson enters Outlaw at the head of the North Region class. Back-to-back podium finishes – including a win last week at Accord (N.Y.) Speedway – have put ‘Money Mat’ in charge two-races in.

The 2021 ‘Outlaw Showdown’ proved to be one of the most exciting races of the STSS season, with the final 43 laps firing off without a caution, and the top-five running within car-lengths of each other when the checkered flag flew.

Matt Sheppard

The former Outlaw Speedway regular will look to call on his past dominance at the speedway following a 14th-place finish at Accord. Sheppard enters the event having won the North Region opener and the inaugural ‘Outlaw Showdown’ back in 2016.

Steve Paine

Paine was triumphant in the 2021 thrilling edition of the ‘Outlaw Showdown.’ The Hall of Fame driver will look to repeat and knock off the stars of the STSS at his home track for his second career STSS triumph.

Danny Creeden

Creeden has been as strong as anyone thus far in the ‘2022 STSS campaign. Creeden currently sits second in North Region points following back-to-back top-five finishes at Accord and Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, N.Y.

Jeff Daugherty 

Daugherty enters the ‘Outlaw Showdown’ as the current point leader Outlaw Speedway. The West Elmira, N.Y., native has two modified wins at his home track this season and will look for another stout performance against the outsiders.

Erick Rudolph

Rudolph hopes to shake off the bad luck he has endured to open his 2022 STSS campaign. Rudolph’s STSS history at Outlaw is strong, with runner-up finishes coming in 2016 and 2019.

Danny Tyler 

Tyler is off to a quiet-but-impressive start to the North Region season. A fifth-place finish last week at Accord vaulted Tyler into sixth in the North Region standings, just 18 markers outside the top-five.

Round No. 2 of the Precision Hydraulic & Oil North Region for the Crate 602 Sportsman is set for Tuesday, the first-ever STSS Crate 602 Sportsman race at Outlaw Speedway. The 25-lap affair pays the winner a $1,500 top prize.

Brian Krummel leads the one-race old North Region standings, after claiming his second career STSS win at Accord Speedway.

The 360 sprint cars, under Patriot Sprint Tour (PST) sanctioning, round out the program.
