Stars & Stripes returns to action tonight at Rolling Wheels Raceway

Four starting spots up for grabs in Tuesday’s DIRTcar Sportsman Modified race

WEEDSPORT, N. Y. – October 4, 2013 – The DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds join the Super DIRTcar Series Tuesday, Oct. 8, for a special NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week XLII kickoff race night. Four starting spots are still available in the 30-lap DIRTcar Sportsman Modified feature, with a 10-lap qualifying heat running Tuesday to set the rest of the field.

Both divisions were originally scheduled to run Sunday, Sept. 1, for the Labor Day Classic Stars & Stripes 100, but inclement weather postponed the feature races. The Big-Block Modifieds of the Super DIRTcar Series completed 24 laps before conditions caused officials to red-flag the race. Billy Decker and Dale Planck will start in the front row Tuesday to complete the remainder of the 100-lapper.

The DIRTcar Sportsman Modified feature race never hit the track by the time the postponement was announced. Competitors in that division will start and finish all 30 laps Tuesday, with four spots still open in the 24-car field. Any team desiring to enter the event must draw for positions in a 10-lap heat race. The top-four in the qualifying race will transfer to the remaining spots in the feature.

Previously qualified positions in the DIRTcar Sportsman Modified feature event must be maintained by the original driver because the feature race has not yet started.
