CONCORD, NC – September 27, 2018 – NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week is an event like no other, culminating with one of the most coveted races in all of dirt motorsports, the Billy Whittaker Cars 200.

The stars and cars of the Big-Block Modifieds have battled wheel-to-wheel all season long on the road to Oswego.
