INDIANAPOLIS – Dec. 11, 2014 – The Super DIRTcar Series announced today at the Performance Racing Industry tradeshow a combination of traditional events and races at new venues will make up its 2015 schedule.

A four-race slate of events in June begins with the series’ return Tuesday, June 16, to Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pa. for the first time since 2010, then rolls Wednesday, June 24, to Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, N.Y., for the first time since 2003; Sunday, June 28, at Cornwall (Ont.) Speedway; and June 30 at Ohsweken (Ont.) Speedway, where the series will race for the first time in its history.

Tradition runs deep in August as the series competes three times in the first week with races on Monday, Aug. 3, at Merrittville Speedway in Thorold, Ont.; Tuesday, Aug. 4, at Ransomville (N.Y.) Speedway; and Thursday, Aug. 6 in the “Hall of Fame Classic” at Weedsport (N.Y.) Speedway.
