Weedsport, NY — January 14, 2008 – By Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing NorthEast PR Director
The 2008 Hoosier Tire/Sunoco Race Fuels Mr. DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series has grown by one race with the addition of a fifth date at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park on Monday, May 26.
The Memorial Day special at Rolling Wheels now features an Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series/Mr. DIRTcar Sportsman Series doubleheader with valuable points on the line for both popular touring divisions.
“This will be a great way to end the holiday for our race teams and fans,” said Cory Reed, DIRTcar Racing NorthEast Director of Competition & Track Sanctioning. “With Sportsman already on the Hall of Fame Classic card Sunday night at Cayuga County, this will give even more incentive for invaders to come and stay over when Rolling Wheels runs the next day just 10 minutes away.”
Beginning with a 55-lap event at Black Rock Speedway on April 5 and concluding with a 50-lapper during Eastern States Weekend at Orange County Fair Speedway on October 18, the 19th annual Sportsman Series for DIRTcar Racing NorthEast’s entry-level open-wheel division now offers 17 events at 13 speedways.
For additional Series information, please contact Cory Reed, DIRTcar Racing NorthEast Director of Competition & Track Sanctioning, at the Weedsport office (315/834-6606) during normal business hours or log into the DIRTcar homepage at www.superdirtcarseries.com to find out more about the entire circuit.
