COVID-19 Restrictions Force Cancelation of Super DIRTcar Series ‘Battle on the Midway’ at Orange County Fair Speedway

MIDDLETOWN, NY – Super DIRTcar Series and Orange County Fair Speedway management have agreed to cancel the Tuesday, July 28 “Battle on the Midway” Series race due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

Both organizations are looking forward to getting back on track with the Eastern States 200 on Sunday, Oct. 25.

“Orange County promoter Brett Hearn went into great detail and time in an attempt to make the Super DIRTcar Series event work at Orange County,” Super DIRTcar Series Director Dean Reynolds said. 

“Unfortunately with New York State restrictions, and now with the track having to hold off on the drive-In section, we both felt best to cancel the show and move the focus to Eastern States Weekend.  Brett still wants to give the DIRTcar Big Blocks a show on the July 28 date and is looking to put together another type of program to give the gang a race to run.”

Orange County’s return to weekly DIRTcar action plus the Eastern States 200 coming back to the Series schedule created a lot of buzz around the Middletown oval. 

“We are all very disappointed. Orange County is my home track where my dad and I grew up watching racing. I saw Brett Hearn’s first race!” Reynolds said. 

“And I can tell how much Brett is disappointed as he followed the Series for so many years. He loves the Series and really wanted to have this event in his first year at the promotional helm.”

The Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds kick off their return to racing on Wednesday, July 29th at the Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, New Jersey.

MAHANEY MATTERS: Mike Mahaney is ready to fly in 2020

CONCORD, NC – King Ferry, NY’s Mike Mahaney has a reputation. In the pit area, the full-time Super DIRTcar Series competitor has a smile as wide as a front stretch is long but on the track, he’s known as a ferocious competitor.

2019 was a revolutionary year for Mahaney. He joined one of the most storied race teams in the history of dirt modified racing in the Northeast: The iconic yellow George and Julie Huttig-owned Adirondack Auto no. 35. 

NAPA Super DIRT Week fans will immediately recognize the yellow paint scheme as it has been entered in the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 for many years with top drivers behind the wheel such as Mike Perrotte, Wayne Jelly, and Frank Cozze. 

Perrotte was the Huttig’s first driver and he brought the No. 35 to the team in 1985. It’s been emblazoned on the Huttig machine ever since. 

Traditionally, outside of NAPA Super DIRT Week, the Huttigs fielded a DIRTcar 358 Modified rather than a Big Blocks. But with Mahaney on board, the Adirondak Auto team enters a new era. 

As a full-time driver, any lull in action is difficult, especially one as extended as we are experiencing in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic. 

“This whole thing has everyone nervous because we just don’t know what to expect,” said Mahaney. “It would be nice to get out there but the next best thing has been iRacing.” The only difference is that the dirt is digital and the cars are virtual but the competition has been incredibly fun for fans and competitors alike.

Mahaney has been competing in the World of Outlaws iRacing Invitationals against some of the best drivers across the country and even the world. His sponsors have been exposed to many thousands of people on FOX Sports, CBS Sports, and DIRTvision making the friendly competition well worth the time for a full-time racer who depends on sponsors. 

“We have been able to put on a show and advertise our sponsors where if we can’t get on the track this is the next best thing to keep their names out there and show them off a bit in a positive way,” said Mahaney. “There’s a lot of negativity out there and this was positive we can do.”

Since day one of the shutdown, the World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing have been working diligently to create racing entertainment for the present while we prepare for the “Return to Racing” and reaction to the iRacing shows has been tremendous. 

When it comes to the racing there are adjustments for real-life drivers to make. 

“The simulator has limitations. You don’t get a “seat of your pants” feeling from the race car of course but it works on your hand-eye coordination and you’re working on your audio coordination,” he noted. “The track changes. You have to move around to find the right groove. You gotta do trial and error with setups. It’s not necessarily the exact changes that we make in real life but you do have to try something to see if the car got faster. You get into that rhythm of what you do in real life.”

Mahaney has been paired against some of the best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car drivers plus stars from NASCAR like Joey Logano, Will Byron, and even Formula 1 and IndyCar star Juan Pablo Montoya. 

“The best part of iRacing is that it doesn’t matter where you are, you can race against people from across the world. We are a Northeast division so it’s rare for us to run into drivers from California or Texas,” Mahaney said. “It’s cool not only because you can race with each other but you get to talk to each other too. We’re on the radio chatting it up and people are going a little bit of trash talking. Instead of fighting in the pits they just say what they want to say and it’s over.” 

Of course, sitting behind the wheel of a simulator in your basement or race shop mostly eliminates the risk factor of making a gutsy slider. Mahaney likens the racing to, “having 25 Jac Haudenchild’s out there going as hard as they can go every lap and not giving an inch. And why not? You don’t have a whole lot to risk.”

Of course, there’s no substitute for the smell of VP Racing Fuel, the heat of the Big Block’s exhaust, and the sound of a cheering crowd.

Race fans can catch Mahaney out on the Super DIRTcar Series trail when the tour starts up again. Additionally, the Adirondack Auto team will also be on the hunt for valuable Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Championship points at Albany-Saratoga Speedway and, new for 2020, Orange County Fair Speedway. 

Now in the second year of the DIRTcar Big Block Modified program, Mahaney and team are ready to rock. 

“We were going to be more prepared than ever before the pandemic but now all we have is time,” said Mahaney. “Without being able to race or test, we’ve learned more about what to work on in the shop. But we won’t know what to do with the cars until we run them.”

Between the Super DIRTcar Series, Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly racing at Albany-Saratoga Speedway, Orange County Fair Speedway, plus select races at Utica-Rome Speedway, the team has to keep up a strict maintenance schedule rotating equipment in and out. 

On some weeks the Adirondack Auto machine will can potentially race four DIRTcar events. The common rulebook makes that possible. “Going from DIRTcar track to DIRTcar track we know we can run our Hoosier Racing Tires and Big Block,” said Mahaney. 

Mahaney is excited to start racing at Orange County. 

“There’s a big attraction to running Orange County. There’s a really good weekly purse and a great point fund. DIRTcar sanctioning means we know 100 percent what we are getting into for rules,” he noted. “There’s a strict rulebook and with Brett Hearn running it, I think knowing him as a racer and a professional, he’ll keep to the rulebook. You know what you expect.”

Needless to say when the Return of Racing comes to the Northeast, Mike Mahaney and his team will be ready. Of course they could not do it all without the support of their sponsors Adirondak Auto, Huttig Nissan, Marcella’s Appliances, Bosch, and Darcy Construction.

Orange County Fair Speedway: DIRTcar Track Spotlight

MIDDLETOWN, NY – In 2020 DIRTcar welcomes back the legendary Orange County Fair Speedway to the fold as the Big Block Modifieds entered the Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Championship in addition to two Super DIRTcar Series tour stops. 

Director of Motorsports and eight-time Super DIRTcar Series Champion Brett The Jet Hearn also ushered in the return of the Eastern States 200 as a points-paying Super DIRTcar Series race for 2020. 

Last year, the Middletown, NY landmark celebrated its centennial in grand fashion. Along with DIRTcar, Orange County Fair Speedway is well-situated to excel in providing professional, high-speed racing action with many of the best Big Block Modified drivers in the country each and every week. 

Orange County has been running weekly racing since 1950 and has been in operation since 1919. The .625 of a mile Orange County Fair Speedway is the site of one of the most prestigious Big Block Modified races in the world, Eastern States 200. 

This year, the Eastern States 200 is the final points-paying race before the Super DIRTcar Series heads to The Dirt Track at Charlotte for the Can-Am World Finals. It’s also the only other 200-lap Big Block Modified race along with the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 on the schedule. 

The Super DIRTcar Series is also slated to appear during the annual Orange County Fair, New York State’s second-largest Fair on Tuesday, July 28. Both stops on the series trail will boast five-digit to win figures. Plus, Orange County boasts a massive $102,000 point fund in addition to the DIRTcar Hoosier Tire Weekly Championship point fund.

Another highlight on the schedule falls on Sunday, August 2 when the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars return to Middletown.

Some of the greatest legends dirt modified racing called the famous fairgrounds oval at Middletown home. Drivers like Frankie Schneider, Buzzie Reutimann, Will Cagle, Gary Balough, Jimmy Horton, and of course Brett Hearn. But others made their mark too like Rick Eurich, Jeff Heotzler, Stewart Friesen, The Doctor Danny Johnson, and dozens more. 

Brett Hearn took the 2019 track championship against a stout field including Tommy Meier, Mike Gular, Horton, Jerry Higbie, Anthony Perrego, and more. This year the field is even more competitive: Matt Sheppard and Mike Mahaney will join the fray on Saturday nights. 

Recent renovations to the grandstands, fencing, pit area, restrooms, and a new, racy track surface that compliments the Hoosier Racing Tire have been key to the rejuvenation of the century-old race track attracting new fans, racers, and sponsors. Chris Larsen and his Halmar International have been the key to the historic track’s future.  

Don’t make your trip to Middletown a day trip. The Middletown population is just under 30,000, which finds many activities for visitors from shopping malls, theaters, and parks. Resorts World Catskills Casino is just a short drive away and of course, New York City is a little over an hour away.

DIRTcar Racing Welcomes Orange County Fair Speedway In Sanctioning of the Big Block Modifieds

MIDDLETOWN, NY – Orange County Fair Speedway, appropriately nicknamed the House of Power, has added DIRTcar sanctioning for their weekly Big Block Modified program. The historic speedway now features Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Championship DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds as well as two Super DIRTcar Series dates, including the Eastern States 200. 

DIRTcar Racing’s Dean Reynolds together with legendary driver and new Orange County Fair Speedway Director of Motorsports Brett Hearn reached the sanctioning agreement to provide a stable rulebook, Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Championship points funding, increased public relations, and reliable insurance for their racers.

“In my view, it’s an effort to keep all the rules intact and keep all the cars under one rulebook, making it easy for the top competitors throughout the Northeast to come to Orange County and know they’re racing under the same umbrella,” Hearn said. “For the local racers, it doesn’t change much because we run VP Racing Fuel and Hoosier Racing Tires. The added benefit of having a DIRTcar license allows for the valuable enhanced insurance program and the weekly racing point fund.”

In 2020, the historic oval will be celebrating an incredible 101st year of competition also sees the return of the Eastern States 200 to the Super DIRTcar Series schedule on Sunday, Oct. 25. The historic 200 is in addition to the Battle on the Midway 100, which is Tuesday, July 28. 

“Sanctioning the Eastern States 200 is good on multiple levels,” Hearn said. “It’s good for DIRTcar because it adds a second 200 lapper to the schedule, and it’s good for Eastern States because it’s now the second-to-last points race so you know everybody is going to be racing extremely hard for everything they can get.”

Hearn has raced and won at Orange County Fair Speedway for over 40 years, and in fact is the all-time winner at Middletown with 302 victories overall among the 919 wins and 79 track and series championships he’s earned. He capped off an incredible career full-time behind the wheel by winning another big block title last year. DIRTcar officials are eager to continue working with him during his transition from racer to general manager.

Some of the best Big Block Modified drivers in the Northeast race weekly at Orange County Fair Speedway including Jimmy Horton, Mike Gular, Tommy Meier, Jerry Higbie and so many more.

The legendary 5/8 mile oval boasts so many DIRT Motorsports Hall of Famers as well such as Frankie Schneider, NAPA Super DIRT Week champions, Buzzie Reutimann, Gary Balough, Danny Johnson, Billy Osmun, Bobby Bottcher, Carl Van Horn, Bob Malzahn, Frank Cozze and Rags Carter all called Orange County home in their careers. Also, add Hall of Famer Jeff Heotzler who still competes at the historic oval today. 

With the incredible help of Chris Larsen, Orange County has seen many improvements over the past few years making it a state of the art facility while still preserving the history. With his efforts comes the return of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars on Sunday, August 2. 

DIRTcar Racing, Chris Larsen, Brett Hearn, and Orange County Fair Speedway are excited to kick off the new decade together with this partnership. Fans will see more premier DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds in the pits, drivers will enjoy a stable, professional rulebook, and everyone is looking forward to another spectacular decade of racing at The House of Power.

New Races, Return of Eastern States Highlights 2020 Super DIRTcar Series Tour

CONCORD, NC — Super DIRTcar Series fans saw one of the greatest all-time championship battles go down to the final night of the 2019 season, culminating in Mat Williamson edging seven-time champ Matt Sheppard for the crown. Today, the Super DIRTcar Series reveals its 2020 schedule, setting the stage for the best Big Block Modified drivers in the country to showcase their brand of wheel-to-wheel racing at the most historic and tradition-filled venues across the Northeast. 

There are 30 races on the Super DIRTcar Series schedule with nearly $1.3 million at stake during the season, including eight events where drivers will have a chance to lock themselves into the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 at NAPA Super DIRT Week in October.

One of the biggest additions to the 2020 tour is the return of the legendary $40,000-to-win Eastern States 200 on Sunday, Oct. 25, at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, NY. Also, for the first time ever, the Series will take on New York’s Thunder Mountain Speedway in Center Lisle.

The points-paying season rumbles to life at Can-Am Speedway with a $7,500-to-win Thunder in the Thousand Islands 100 on Saturday, April 11. The Series will see the newly configured 4/10-mile version of the speedway for the first time, making it anyone’s race. 

Weedsport Speedway is a part of the very fabric of short track Big Block Modified racing having hosted Super DIRTcar Series races since 1972. The Series has contested the Central New York oval 68 times and the 2020 schedule will add three more names and numbers to the winner’s list.

The first of Weedsport’s three races is the Heroes Remembered 100 on Memorial Day, May 25. Then, on Sunday, July 26, $10,000 and a guaranteed NAPA Super DIRT Week berth will go to the winner of the annual Hall of Fame 100.  Finally, on Monday, Sept. 12, Weedsport hosts a mega-event, which will also award more than $10,000 to the winner and a Billy Whittaker Cars 200 starting position.

Tuesday, June 23, marks the first NAPA Super DIRT Week Billy Whittaker Cars 200 qualifier of 2020. A guaranteed start and $10,000 are on the line at Albany-Saratoga Speedway in Brett Hearn’s The Big Show XII. Later in the season, the fan-favorite Malta, NY, track hosts a second Billy Whittaker Cars qualifier on Saturday, Sept. 26. The Battle at Toga pays out $10,000 to the winner, as well.

The high-banked bullring of Cornwall Motor Speedway follows on Sunday, June 28. The quarter-mile has seen 25 Series races in its history with Brett Hearn carrying the most wins with five. Eight-time champ Sheppard is on a three-race win streak going into 2020’s O’Canada 100. 

The next day, Monday, June 29, the Series rolls up to another bullring, Le RPM Speedway in Quebec. The $7,500-to-win battle royale on the quarter-mile dirt oval is sure to thrill Canadian and road-tripping American fans.

Land of Legends Raceway in Canandaigua, NY, is set for a huge year on the Super DIRTcar Series tour. The historic track, and weekly home of Sheppard, Rudolph and more, has three Super DIRTcar Series races scheduled. On Thursday, July 2, celebrate Independence Day with the Liberty 100. The Series then returns on Thursday, Aug. 13 for the Gerald Haers Memorial and a second $7,500-to-win Feature on the high-speed Finger Lakes New York half-mile. Finally, on Saturday, Sept. 19, a minimum of $10,000 and a NAPA Super DIRT Week guaranteed start are on the line to wrap up the three-race Land of Legends miniseries.

The long-awaited return of the Super DIRTcar Series to Ontario’s Ohsweken Speedway is on Monday, July 6, which is also the 25th Anniversary of their very first racing event. The Series comes back in a big way with a 100-lap Feature to pay $10,000-to-win as well as a guaranteed start at NAPA Super DIRT Week. Chad Brachmann took the first of only two previous races at the 3/8-mile speedway back in 2015. The next day, Tuesday, July 7, the Series rolls back stateside to Niagara County for the Summer Nationals at Ransomville Speedway. 

The next stop is another Monday-Tuesday doubleheader, this time in Quebec. On July 20, the big, fast, and exciting Autodrome Granby hosts the Super DIRTcar Series to kick off the Quebec swing. The next day, Tuesday, July 21, is Autodrome Drumond’s turn to pack the stands for Series action. 

Tuesday, July 28 the Super DIRTcar Series goes to the Orange County Fair. The Battle on the Midway 100 at Orange County Fair Speedway is a NAPA Super DIRT Week qualifier paying $10,000 to the victor. 

But the Series returns to Middletown, NY, one more time in 2020 and it’s huge. The $40,000-to-win Eastern States 200, on Sunday, Oct. 25, is officially a Super DIRTcar Series points race once again. Adding another prestigious and historic event to the Series schedule makes the month of October even more special.

Bridgeport Speedway in New Jersey has played host to 18 Super DIRTcar Series races in its illustrious history. The Series returns for the 19th time on Wednesday, July 29 for a $7,500-to-win Feature. Series drivers will have to contend with the best New Jersey and Pennsylvania drivers to come away with a win on the newly configured 4/10ths -mile version of the historic track. 

On Tuesday, Aug. 4, the Super DIRTcar Series makes its inaugural visit to New York’s Thunder Mountain Speedway. Thunder Mountain also announced DIRTcar sanctioning for 358 Modifieds and Sportsman Modifieds in 2020. Teams and officials are excited to take on the challenge of a new track for $7,500-to-win. 

The Mr. DIRT Track USA is set once again for the giant Lebanon Valley Speedway on Saturday, Sept. 5, and paying $25,500 to the winner plus a guaranteed spot in the NAPA Super DIRT Week field Kenny Tremont Jr. has successfully defended his home territory for the past two years. Can a Series driver invade for a win in 2020? 

The next day, Sunday, Sept. 6, the Series rolls to Utica-Rome Speedway. Billy Decker and Brett Hearn each have Series high two wins at the Vernon, NY track. The half-mile is a staple of DIRTcar with weekly 358, Sportsman and Pro Stock sanctioning and the fans looked forward to the annual stop of the big blocks!

The most exciting, prestigious and historic dirt track racing event of the year takes place Oct. 7-11 in Oswego, NY. Dirt will cover Oswego Speedway for the fifth consecutive year for NAPA Super DIRT Week XLIX featuring the $50,000-to-win Billy Whittaker Cars 200 on Sunday, Oct. 11. Williamson took the win in 2019 and propelled himself to the Series championship. Back-to-back wins would cement Williamson’s name in Series history.

The Series’ final trip to Canada is Friday, Oct. 16 for the Northeast Fall Nationals at Brockville Ontario Speedway. Danny Johnson and Decker are locked in a tie for the most Series wins at Brockville with three. Will it be a veteran wheelman who takes The Bullring win or can a young gun like Demetrios Drellos or Jack Lehner ride to victory?

Finally, two Can-Am World Finals Features at The Dirt Track at Charlotte will decide the points for the 2020 championship race. No doubt Williamson will be aiming to create a little more breathing room than last year, but eight-time champion Sheppard and the rest of the field will be eager to write their names in the history book. 

With a total winner’s purse alone totaling at least $293,000 plus and a minimum of $500-to-start, it’s no wonder the Super DIRTcar Series is the pinnacle of Big Block Modified racing in the Northeast.
