WEEDSPORT, NY –  This September contains six premier Super DIRTcar Series races with four of the five paying $10,000 plus to win for the Beats of the Northeast to clash over. That also means there are only four more prized NAPA Super DIRT Week starting positions up for grabs.

So far only six drivers have locked themselves into the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 during NAPA Super DIRT Week. They include: Stewart Friesen, Demetrios Drellos, Tim Fuller, Matt Sheppard, Max McLaughlin, and Chris Hile.

This Saturday (Sept. 4), Lebanon Valley Speedway takes center stage with the $25,500-to-win Mr. DIRT Track USA. The Valley of Speed is one of the fastest and most challenging tracks on the tour

After that, it’s the two-day Cavalcade Cup Weekend at the historic and pristine Weedsport Speedway on Sept. 10-11. Friday’s Feature pays $7,500 while Saturday pumps the purse to $10,000 for the first Big Block across the line. 

Saturday, Sept. 18, brings the Series stars back to Land of Legends Raceway for the third annual Gerald Haers Memorial. This time, the memorial win comes with a guaranteed start at NAPA Super DIRT Week. 

The month of money concludes with a NAPA Super DIRT Week qualifier at The Great Race Place, also known as Albany-Saratoga Speedway, for the Massive Malta Weekend, featuring both the Super DIRTcar Series and the DIRTcar Pro Stock Series.

DIRT TRACK USA 

The Valley of Speed – Lebanon Valley Speedway – has been a staple on the Super DIRTcar Series calendar since 1972 when Dick Hansen took the inaugural win. In 2021, things are a little different. This year, Mr. DIRT Track USA will pay $25,500 to the winner after 100 laps of high-speed action. 

Lebanon Valley is a unique racetrack with some of the longest straightaways the Series travels. followed by high-banked paperclip turns at each end. Speed, brakes and bravery will crown the Mr. DIRT Track USA winner on Sept. 4. Click here for tickets and camping info.

There’s always something special about Big Blocks at Land of Legends Raceway. The long-standing Canandaigua, NY race track once again hosts the Gerald Haers Memorial on Saturday, Sept. 18. New this year, the event will be a full Series points race. And along with points, drivers will be chasing the $10,000-to-win top prize and a guaranteed start at NAPA Super DIRT Week. 

This year, Justin Haers, whose father is the namesake of the memorial, won the Land of Legends Raceway track championship in a tight battle with fellow Series stars Erick Rudolph and Peter Britten. Haers edged the duo by just two points. 

Rookie sensation Chris Hile, in the #5H, took the checkered flag at last year’s Gerald Haers Memorial. Hile has also been on a hot streak recently, winning races in Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Championship racing and finishing well in Series races. This could be a breakthrough race for the Syracuse, NY driver.
