DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds return to Brockville Ontario Speedway
BOB FM/Coca-Cola 100 pays $6,000-to-win
BROCKVILLE, ONT – A large field of 800-plus horsepower Big-Block Modifieds will take to the high banks of Brockville Ontario Speedway Wednesday, May 27, for the 103.7 BOB FM/Coca-Cola 100.
The 100-lap event is the third race of the 2015 Super DIRTcar Series. It offers a purse in excess of $30,000, contingencies included, that will pay $6,000-to-win. Thirty positions will be available on the starting grid.
Matt Sheppard of Waterloo, NY, driver of the FX Caprara/HBR Racing No. 9h, is the Super DIRTcar Series point leader. He will square off against the likes of 2014 Series champion Billy Decker, Brett Hearn, Stewart Friesen, Larry Wight, Tim Fuller, Jimmy Phelps, Tim McCreadie and Justin Haers.
Haers, from Phelps, NY, held off Decker and Hearn on the Brockville 3-8 mile oval one year ago to earn his first ever win in a Super DIRTcar Series point race.
“I had my hands full with Decker trying to get that win,” Haers said. “Brockville is a small fast track. Night races there are great. The rubber lays down and there are multiple lanes to race in. You just have to try to pick the best line.”
Brockville native Matt Billings, the 2009 Sportsman Modified track champion, is off to a good start in the Big-Block Series in the Billings Automotive/Plooy’s Plumbing & Heating No. 74.
“Brockville is a wheels up – hammer down track,” Billings said. “I’ll have a lot of friends and family there and I know the fans will enjoy having the best in the business like Sheppard and Hearn and Stewart Friesen there.”
“The Big-Blocks are coming to the bull ring, get ready,” track owner/promoter Paul Kirkland said.
Brockville Ontario Speedway is located on Temperance Road just off Highway 29 in Brockville, Ontario. For additional information, visit www.brockvillespeedway.com.
