CONCORD, NC – December 20, 2018 – From Soap Box Derby cars to Big-Block Modifieds, Demetrios Drellos has quickly made a name for himself racing DIRTcar Modifieds in Eastern New York. Now he, and car owners Dawn and George Drellos, are preparing to take their Bicknell Racing Products chassis out on the Super DIRTcar Series tour. The 22 year-old Queensbury, NY native knows that if you wants to make it in Big-Block Modified racing, you have to follow the Super DIRTcar Series, and race against the best in the business. But a driver doesn’t wake up one day and decide to do this. Drellos has had a fascinating path to Big-Block Modified racing.

Modified Rules Unchanged for 2019 at Merrittville Speedway

BY: Steven Petty

THOROLD, ON (December 19, 2018) –  Merrittville Speedway hosted a drivers meeting for the modified division on Tuesday evening with the discussion on what is taking place for the division for the 2019 campaign, the 68th season of racing at Merrittville.

“We will be DIRTcar sanctioned in 2019 for the Modifieds”, commented Merrittville Speedway owner Don Spiece. Merrittville was going to allow drivers that have a Wegner W-16 motor to run alcohol instead of racing fuel due to the high costs of racing fuel in Canada. However, for 2019, the rules for the Modifieds will be unchanged, including the fuel rule which will be using VP Racing Fuel, D113, D109, or D12.

“When the Super DIRTcar Series released their 2019 schedule and Merrittville was not on it, I received phone calls from sponsors, drivers and fans were wondering why”, Spiece explained. “I have been talking to DIRTcar and I can reassure everyone involved that a Big Block Modified Super DIRTcar Series race will take place on the traditional Civic Holiday Monday at Merrittville Speedway in 2019”. 2019 will be seeing drivers move up into the Modified division, as it has become more economically-friendly with the w16 option.
