BARBERVILLE, FL – February 15, 2019 – If the 2019 DIRTcar Nationals truly set the tone for the rest of season, then Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modified fans are in for a banner year. The third round of the quest for the Big Gator was captured by Gypsum Racing’s No. 99L Lightning Larry Wight thanks to his commitment to the top side of the race track, no matter how little cushion was left to lean on. Early race leader Matt Sheppard was initially overtaken by two Gypsum Racing cars, but managed to get back around the veteran pilot of the No. 42P, Pat Ward to retake second place. Pole-sitter Peter Britten challenged for a podium, running the high side as well, but was forced to settle for fourth.
