  3. On behalf of the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series Fueled By Sunoco, I want to say 'THANK YOU' to all those who supported us at Thunder Mountain Speedway this weekend. We hustled 234 race cars through the gate over two days and had our strongest crowd turnout for the Saturday portion of our event in many years, all while battling the weather. Much appreciation to our fans for sticking it out through weather delays and a power outage. Thanks to our competitors for fighting wet and muddy pit conditions on Saturday, all the while putting on some great racing. And finally to the Thunder Mountain Speedway management team and officials and our series staff, great job! Congratulations to all our weekend winners and both Dominic Roselli (Open Sportsman) and Tom Collins Jr. (Crate 602 Sportsman North) for clinching the first two STSS championships of 2018. Looking forward to wrapping up 2018 on a strong note starting this Friday at Port Royal Speedway with the return of the Modifieds. We couldn't do it without the support of our racers, fans, sponsors, crew members and media members. -Brett Deyo

    Austin Hubbard in a modified?

    Austin ran some practice laps in a Modified at the end of our July 20 race at Georgetown. He loved it. I would not be surprised to see him run the Blast at the Beach STSS race on August 28 in a Hurlock Auto & Speed car.
  5. All-day rain – predicted at 100-percent – has forced the postponement of Wednesday’s ‘Afton Action 50’ at Afton Motorsports Park until THURSDAY, JULY 26. The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco will headline the ‘Thursday Night Thunder’ on the Afton Fairgrounds, with a 50-lap event paying big-block/small-block Modifieds a hefty $5,000 to win and $400 to take the green plus contingency awards and bonuses. This is Race No. 4 of the STSS Halmar International North Region which offers the series champion $12,500 at year-end. Also on the open-wheel doubleheader is the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman inaugural North Region race, the first of five offering a $1,000 champion, paying $1,000 to win for 25 laps. This series was scheduled to kick off on Memorial Day weekend, but rain prompted the postponement of the opener at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Center Lisle, N.Y., to Sept. 23. The Crate 602 delayed STSS North opener gives a strong first-to-last payout and the potential to challenge for the series title. Additionally, Insinger Performance American Racer Cup Challenge points will be up for grabs toward the Sportsman North Region bonus money offered by Bruce Insinger of Insinger Performance in Dushore, Pa.
  6. Short Track Super Series

    STSS MONDAY, JULY 16 ANTHRACITE ASSAULT CANCELED

    When you put on 30 events or more during a year, you are going to make decisions that are right and are wrong. We felt that the race back in June was going to get in; it didn't and everyone went home before race time. Because of the amount of racing on the schedule my initial gut feeling was to scrap the event but we decided to try the make-up date. Jake Smulley and I were partners on the event and talked both Sunday and Monday morning. We made what we felt was a safe decision to save everyone from towing there for a second time and going home when the National Weather Service listed a 60 percent chance for the afternoon and evening. And by doing it early we could save people time off. It didn't rain. It's a game time decision you have to make and that is what happened. Do not blame or throw Big Diamond under the bus for this as it was a mutual decision. Our series' lowest car count this year has been 36 at the southern tip of Delaware. Four of our events so far have been above 40 Modifieds. We keep a loyal following of cars by always looking out for our racers and trying to do the best for them. We aren't the Super DIRTcar Series, many of our teams have regular jobs or own their own businesses. Time spent going to a rainout is timed wasted for them. When I feel we can get it in, I try. I ran in sleet this March at my own track at Georgetown. I had 40 mile an hour winds and 38 degree weather when the RUSH Series came to Georgetown in April after steady rain all afternoon. I was certain this race would be be a financial loser but the teams were in Delaware for the speed week so we ran for their sake. Our loss matched the check Stewart Friesen got for winning the Modified feature that night: $6,000 (and I think he still talked me into buying the beer afterward). The point is, yes there are still profitable events. Yes there are some that are losers. I can take both outcomes and go home knowing I did the right thing. I also continue to work a 'regular' job so racing is not my live and die income so I have this luxury. I felt like we did the right thing Monday and it didn't turn out like we thought. It happens. Drivers spin out. Crew chiefs miss the setup. Tires go flat. I started in this business with $220 back in 2006 at Afton and I am still here without the benefit of an investor. Over the years I have seen people with huge backing only last a portion of the year (NDRL, USNA, etc.) and disappear. We are still at it so I can't be all that bad. On to Georgetown Friday, Afton Wednesday and BAPS next Sunday for us. P.S. RJO I wish you were my accountant because your numbers are much friendlier than those in my books. We have 17 series races this year. Three of those were events where the promoters take the full risk (i.e. sanction fee) events. The other 14 I either partner with the promoter or lease the venue myself. IF every event - all 17 - paid me a sanction fee of $2,750 (which they do not), I would have collected $46,750, approximately $30,000 shy of our point fund last year. In fact we are probably the only series that takes a financial risk with the promoter. If we lose, we lose together and take the hit. We also win together.
  7. Big Diamond Speedway, Short Track Super Series Officials Cancel July 16 ‘Anthracite Assault’ After a rainout on June 5, Big Diamond Speedway offered up a second date for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco ‘Anthracite Assault’ combination North-South event. However, Mother Nature did not agree. A forecast for intensifying showers throughout the evening hours has prompted Big Diamond and STSS management to make the early call and cancel the event for Monday, July 16. The show will return to Big Diamond in 2019. “Every forecast I have looked at calls for rain later today and tonight,” Big Diamond owner Jake Smulley said. “There is too much risk of the event not going on as planned.” On June 5, all race teams and fans were in attendance when storms moved over at 7 p.m. STSS organizer Brett Deyo didn’t want a repeat. “We already had racers and fans here from all over the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic the first time and they spent money in fuel and tolls,” he said. “We definitely don’t want to do that again.” Racing resumes for the STSS on Wednesday, July 25 (rain date: July 26) at Afton (N.Y.) Motorsports Park for the ‘Afton Action 50’ offering a $5,000 winner’s share and $400 to take the green as part of the Halmar International North Region plus the first-ever STSS Crate 602 Sportsman North Region race paying $1,000 to win. Then, attention turns to the Sunoco Race Fuels/Insinger Performance York County Nationals at BAPS Motor Speedway in Newberrytown, Pa., offering a huge $10,000 to win as part of the Velocita-USA South Region on Sunday, July 29 (Rain Date: Aug. 19). Central PA Legend Cars complete this doubleheader.
  8. $10,000 Awaits Short Track Super Series Winner Sunday, July 29 At BAPS Motor Speedway For York County Nationals With $10,000 awaiting the winner of a 50-lap main event, the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco approaches its richest event of the year on Sunday, July 29. The red clay of BAPS Motor Speedway is the host, while Sunoco Race Fuels and Insinger Performance present the York County Nationals for STSS big-block/small-block Modifieds in the division’s sole 2018 appearance at the Newberrytown, Pa., facility. In two previous performances, the STSS Modifieds have thrilled fans at BAPS Motor Speedway with three-wide racing and exciting finishes. This year’s edition, which again features a 50-lap sprint to the checkered, is sure to do the same. In 2016, a late-race flat tire sent Anthony Perrego limping to the pits, with Ringoes, N.J.’s Ryan Godown the beneficiary, taking home a $5,000 top prize in the return of the Modifieds. A year ago, Ransomville, N.Y., standout Erick Rudolph snookered Stewart Friesen to pocket an increased $10,000 for his Randy Chrysler operation. Once again, the annual BAPS stop is the richest event on the STSS circuit with a cool 10k awaiting the winner, $1,000 for 10th and $400 just to take the green flag. This year’s event is sponsored by Sunoco Race Fuels and regional distributor Insinger Performance based in Dushore, Pa. The York County Nationals is scheduled to serve as Race No. 5 of the eight-race STSS Velocita-USA South Region, which rewards its champion with $10,000 at year-end. Since ownership of the former Susquehanna Speedway was taken by Scott Gobrecht and Kolten Gouse was appointed speedway manager in 2015, upgrades have been non-stop to the four-tenths-mile facility including a fresh surface, sound system, grandstand renovations, lights, new suites, pit area work, concession and restroom upgrades, aesthetic improvements and much, much more. It is a showcase facility for the Modifieds in the Central Pennsylvania market. Joining the STSS Modifieds on the card for the second consecutive year are the Central PA Legends Cars. Visit www.shorttracksuperseries.com for complete event information.
  9. For Modified fans, Monday night at Big Diamond Speedway will produce a Civil war. For the only time in 2018, the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Halmar International North Region and Velocita-USA South Region clash on the same battlefield. It all goes down in Coal Country with the 50-lap ‘Anthracite Assault’ offering $5,000 to the winner, $1,000 for 10th, $400 to take the green and a long list of cash bonuses and special awards. The STSS stop at Big Diamond annually attracts the most diverse STSS field of the season. Now entering the summer stretch, the heat is on STSS Modified drivers in their championship battles. It’s been a long gap between STSS Velocita-USA South Region races, with the most recent coming on Thursday night prior to Memorial Day weekend at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, Del. Matt Sheppard of Waterloo, N.Y., tops the standings driving the Hurlock Auto & Speed No. 9s. Sheppard, with 315 points, leads two-time STSS South champion Ryan Watt (280), David Van Horn (257), Andy Bachetti (246), Craig Von Dohren (238), Duane Howard (237), Ryan Godown (231), Anthony Perrego (229), Billy Pauch Jr. (226) and Rick Laubach (217). Stewart Friesen of Sprakers, N.Y., leads the Halmar International North Region after two wins in the first three events. Friesen, however, will not be able to attend all events due to commitments with his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series efforts. Right now, it’s anyone’s race for the $12,500 title. Friesen has accumulated 290 points and leads Jerry Higbie (255), Billy Decker (249), Mike Mahaney (226), Anthony Perrego (224), Mike Gular and Duane Howard (222), Mat Williamson (216), Rick Laubach (207) and Jeremy Smith (195). Big Diamond’s event carries added significance with points being offered toward both championships on Monday. So far, the “south” has risen in each of the STSS combo races. Rick Laubach was the winner in 2015, Ryan Watt in 2016 and Ryan Godown enters Monday night as the defending race winner. Joining the STSS Modifieds on the program are STSS Sportsman in Race No. 2 of the five-race series ($1,000 to win) and XCel 600 Modifieds. Complete race information can be found at the following link: https://bdmotorsportsmedia.com/big-diamond-july-16-rules-prices-general-information/ Big Diamond Speedway is a three-eighths-mile clay oval located in Minersville, Pa., just miles from Pottsville. The facility offers free parking, state-of-the-art concession areas and restrooms and not a “bad seat” in the house, with hillside grandstands overlooking the on-track action. The speedway GPS address is 392 Forest Lane Pottsville, PA 17901. The official website is www.bigdspeedway.net.

  10. Take two! Since a June 5 rainstorm washed away the scheduled ‘Anthracite Assault’ at Big Diamond Speedway, race fans have been awaiting the new date. Finally, on Monday, July 16, their wait is over. The only combined Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Halmar International North Region and Velocita-USA South Region event of 2018 takes over the Minersville, Pa., oval in a 50-lap main paying $5,000 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green flag. The ‘Anthracite Assault’ serves as Race No. 4 of both the North and South Regions. In North Region action, Stewart Friesen won the opening two events at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, N.Y., and Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, N.Y. Jerry Higbie of Newburgh, N.Y., broke into the win column at Accord (N.Y.) Speedway in the most recent event held on July 3. The South Region has produced three different winners. Ryan Watt picked up the Georgetown (Del.) Speedway opener in March. Jeff Strunk bested the Bridgeport (N.J.) Speedway April field. Matt Sheppard dominated the late stages of the Delaware International Speedway (Delmar, Del.) 50-lap event on Memorial Day. Now, all eyes are on Pennsylvania’s Coal Region. Joining the STSS Modifieds on the program are STSS Sportsman in Race No. 2 of the five-race series ($1,000 to win) and XCel 600 Modifieds.

  11. Short Track Super Series Invades Accord Speedway Tuesday, July 3 For 'Battle of the Bullring 6' You better hang on tight for this 12-second ride. The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco invades the quarter-mile Accord Speedway on Tuesday, July 3 for Battle of the Bullring 6! STSS Modifieds headline the program running 50 laps for a $5,000 winner’s share, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green flag, Race No. 3 en route to the $12,500 Halmar International North Region championship. Two-time 2018 series winner Stewart Friesen leads the standings into Accord over Mike Mahaney, Billy Decker, Duane Howard, Rick Laubach, Jerry Higbie, Mike Gular, Ryan Godown, Brian Krummel and Mat Williamson. All of the top-10 – and many more – are expected to attend. Anthony Perrego is the defending winner of the event and tops the point standings at Accord. STSS Sportsman ($1,000 to win) and Street Stocks ($350 to win) complete the tripleheader program. Complete race information can be found at the following link: https://bdmotorsportsmedia.com/battle-of-the-bullring-6-rules-prices-general-information/ ‘Battle of the Bullring 6’ Order of Events 3 p.m. – Pit Gate Opens 4 p.m. – Grandstand Gate Opens 5:45 p.m. – Drivers’ Meeting/STSS Modified Draw for Heat-Race Starting Positions 6:15 p.m. – Hot Laps STSS Sportsman STSS Modifieds Street Stocks 7 p.m. – Racing STSS Modified Heats (10 laps) STSS Sportsman Heats (8 laps) Street Stock Heats (6 laps) STSS Modified Redraw STSS Modified Consolations (10 laps) STSS Sportsman Consolations (8 laps) Street Stock Consolations (6 laps) STSS Modified Feature (50 laps) STSS Sportsman Feature (25 laps) Street Stock Feature (20 laps) ONE-WAY RADIO: 454.000 – TRANSPONDERS REQUIRED – THANK YOU FOR RACING WITH US!
  12. You better hold on tight for this 12-second ride! The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco heads to the ‘Ulster County Bullring’ of Accord Speedway on the eve of Independence Day: Tuesday, July 3. The Palmer family’s “elbow’s-up” quarter-mile oval is set for 50 laps of STSS big-block/small-block Modified action in Round No. 3 of the series’ Halmar International North Region. Racing action at Accord is always intense. With a $12,500 championship looming at year-end and a healthy $5,000 going to the event’s winner, it will be all-out in the sixth edition of the ‘Battle of the Bullring’ midweek special. A year ago, Anthony Perrego completed a last-lap, last-turn pass of local hotshoe Jimmy Wells in a 50-lap feature that went green-to-checkered without a caution flag. The finish brought a large crowd to its feet! For 2018, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Stewart Friesen is two-for-two in STSS Halmar International North Region competition. Friesen went to Victory Lane at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, N.Y., on May 8 and won a thriller at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, N.Y., in the most recent event on June 20. The series point standings are loaded with talent. Chasing Friesen are Mike Mahaney, Billy Decker, Duane Howard, Rick Laubach, Jerry Higbie, Mike Gular, Ryan Godown, Brian Krummel and Mat Williamson. Surprisingly outside of the top-10 after two events is ‘Super’ Matt Sheppard, who suffered misfortune at Outlaw while contending for the race lead. Sheppard will have the Maryland-based Hurlock Auto & Speed No. 9s in the pit area at Accord. Of course, Accord’s tough weekly regulars will be looking to stake their claim of the $5,000 top prize. Wells was so close a year ago. A winner already at the Big A this year, could he gain redemption? Joining the STSS Modifieds on the card are STSS Sportsman in Race No. 1 of their five-event series paying $1,000 to win and $100 to start plus Street Stocks with $350 going to the winner of the 20-lap feature. The ‘Battle of the Bullring 6’ has a rain date in place of Wednesday, July 4.

  13. The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco big-block/small-block Modifieds are back at Outlaw Speedway Wednesday, June 20. The STSS returns after a season away from the Dundee, N.Y., four-tenths-mile track. STSS Modifieds race 50 laps for a $25,000-plus pay structure offering $5,000 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green in the ‘Outlaw Showdown’ special. Stewart Friesen leads the STSS Halmar North Region standings into Outlaw over Rick Laubach, Jerry Higbie, Billy Decker and Mike Mahaney – all of whom are expected to be in attendance. New Jersey-Pennsylvania drivers Ryan Godown, Duane Howard and Mike Gular have set plans to invade the Finger Lakes Region. Defending series champion Andy Bachetti and red-hot Anthony Perrego will look to recover from finishes outside the top-10 in the season opener at Orange County Fair Speedway. Mat Williamson, who experienced engine trouble at OCFS in May, will officially make his debut for the Behrent’s Performance Warehouse team as a teammate to Tommy Meier. Dominant across the Northeast – including his Friday night home at Outlaw – is Matt Sheppard, who will be at the controls of the Sweeteners Plus No. 92s. Veteran Alan Johnson won the Outlaw Modified main this past Friday and would love to take home the top prize. Track owner Tyler Siri has added Danny Johnson to a two-car stable looking for the big payday.

  14. Here is our provisional/buy-in policy: two highest in series points unable to qualify, could be 1 and 2, could be 14 and 15 depending on the night, get offered the series provisionals. Highest in track points unable to qualify are offered the track buy-in. Sometimes the track will offer to pay their representative. Shaping up to be a great show at Outlaw. Hope to see the DTD contingent there!
