York County Nationals - Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series Fueled by Sunoco - BAPS Motor Speedway

MILLSBORO, DE –The seventh year for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco is poised to be the strongest to date.

The 2020 schedule of events encompasses five states, two regions for both the Modified and Crate 602 Sportsman divisions and – for the first time ever – a trip to Florida for the inaugural ‘Sunshine Swing’ mini-series in February.

The STSS Modified Halmar International North Region is comprised of 10 events, launching at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, N.Y., on Sunday, April 19 and capping off the series at the Legendary House of Power as a kickoff to Eastern States Weekend in October.

Afton (N.Y.) Motorsports Park, under the direction of Ron Ford, expands to two dates this season, the ‘Afton Action 50’ in on Tuesday, June 16 and the 13th edition of the Short Track SuperNationals in October. The ‘Working Man’s Race’ of 2019 was a decorated success in its return to the fairgrounds facility last October.

Single stops are planned for Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, N.Y. (Wednesday, May 13), Thunder Mountain Speedway in Center Lisle, N.Y. (Sunday, May 24), Big Diamond Speedway in Minersville, Pa. (Tuesday, June 2, combination North & South), Fonda (N.Y.) Speedway (Wednesday, July 1), Accord (N.Y.) Speedway (Tuesday, July 14) and Woodhull (N.Y.) Raceway (Tuesday, August 11).



The Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central starts in March at Delaware’s Georgetown Speedway with the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial paying $10,049 to win Friday-Saturday March 6-7 (weather date: March 13-14). The historic Georgetown oval again serves as a home base of the STSS South Region with three events including the ‘Blast at the Beach’ on Tuesday, August 25 and the Mid-Atlantic Championship Friday-Saturday October 30-31.

Other stops on the eight-race tour include Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway (Sunday, March 22), Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, Del. (Wednesday, April 29), Bridgeport (N.J.) Motorsports Park, now under the ownership of Doug Rose (Wednesday, May 27), Big Diamond Speedway (Tuesday, June 2) and BAPS Motor Speedway in Newberrytown, Pa. (Sunday, July 19).

For the second consecutive year, the STSS will offer Crate 602 Sportsman North and South Region series, six races each. The North Region visits Thunder Mountain (May 24), Afton (June 16), Fonda (July 1), Accord (July 14), Woodhull (August 16) and Afton (October 9-10).

The South arm of the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman series has three stops at Georgetown (March 6-7, August 25 & October 30-31), a visit to Delaware International (April 29), Bridgeport (May 27) and Big Diamond (June 2).

For the first time ever, the series heads to Florida Wednesday-Saturday February 5-8 at All-Tech Raceway in Lake City, Fla., approximately one hour west of Jacksonville. The ‘Sunshine Swing’ mini-series kicks off Wednesday with open practice followed by Modified and Crate 602 Sportsman competition Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Once again, the lucrative ‘Grand Champion’ promotion will be available through Sunoco Race Fuels distributor Insinger Performance of Dushore, Pa. Should a driver win the STSS Modified North or South Region and the home-track American Racer Cup, that driver will receive a $10,000 cash bonus. Should a driver win the North and South Regions plus the American Racer Cup, the number climbs to $25,000.

Matt Sheppard of Savannah, N.Y., accomplished the ‘Grand Champion’ feat in ’19 and will receive $58,500 cash when the STSS hosts its Awards Banquet on Saturday, January 4 at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Both American Racer Tires, through distributor Lias Tire in Indiana, Pa., and Sunoco Race Fuels, via Insinger Performance of Dushore, Pa., return to support the series in ’20.

Again, all STSS events will be broadcast live via Pay-Per-View on www.dirttrackdigest.tv.
