CAVALCADE WEEKEND – Saturday & Sunday, Sept. 10-11
Track: Weedsport Speedway
Location: Weedsport, NY
To Win: $7,500 (Saturday) / $10,000 (Sunday)
2021 Winner: Matt Sheppard
Notables: Five-time NAPA Super DIRT Week champion Stewart Friesen has won the last two Super DIRTcar Series events at the 3/8-mile track. Last year, for the win, he had to hold off Max McLaughlin – who earned his first career Series victory at the track in 2020.
This year, McLaughlin rejoined Heinke-Baldwin Racing – located just outside the speedway – becoming Jimmy Phelps teammate again. The two teammates will look to bring HBR a home track win.
Eight-time and defending Series champion Matt Sheppard, of Waterloo, NY, has the most Series wins of all active driver with six. He finished fourth during the Heroes Remembered 100 in May.
With two days of racing, there will be two chances for several drivers to get their first win at the speedway. Anthony Perrego, currently second in Series points, is still looking for this first win this season and first at Weedsport. He’ll be joined with drivers like Tim Sears Jr., Marc Johnson, Alex Yankoswski, Peter Britten and several others looking for their first Weedsport triumph.
