ROSSBURG, OH – July 19, 2017 – Billy Whittaker started on the pole and drove the cushion to perfection on his way to victory in the Super DIRTcar Series All-Star Showdown at Eldora Speedway on Wednesday night. While it was a non-points race, it was Whittaker’s first Feature win of any kind with the Series. Whittaker built a sizable lead that Brett Hearn and Billy Decker tried to erase, but fell about five car lengths short. Max McLaughlin and Mat Williamson rounded out the top-five. The All-Star Showdown featured the Super DIRTcar Series full-time drivers and the top-six non-regular finishers from the July 18 full points event.
