SUSSEX, NJ – Already there’s a buzz in the air as top Northeast dirt track Modified teams anticipate competing in the Tuesday, June 27 The Big Show 9 Super DIRTcar Modified Series 100 at Malta, New York’s Albany-Saratoga Speedway. “We’ve got a great group of teams committed to running most of the Series races and when you add in the top weekly competitors from Albany-Saratoga plus several other drivers who have told to me that they’re looking forward to the race, I expect we’ll have the largest field of the summer,” says event organizer Brett Hearn.
“Each year The Big Show gets harder and harder to win. Believe me, the competition this year is tougher than ever,” added Hearn. “
Group time trials and qualifying heat races will set the field for the 100-lap feature race paying the winner $10,000. The companion support division will be The Big Crate Show presented by Fox Racing Shocks for Sportsman cars. They’ll use timed hot laps to set the fields for a pair of 20-lap races, each with its own purse paying the each winner $1,000, with a $250 bonus if winning cars are equipped with Fox Shocks.
Among the top Super DIRTcar Modified drivers expected include Matt Sheppard, Brett Hearn, Billy Decker, Jimmy Phelps, Larry Wight, Stewart Friesen, Max McLaughlin, Tim Fuller, Keith Flach, and Pat Ward. Challenging them will be Albany-Saratoga Speedway weekly competitors including Marc Johnson, Peter Britten, Ronnie Johnson, Mat DeLorenzo, Neal Stratton, and Ken Tremont Jr. Tim McCreadie will lead the outside invaders looking to upset both the Series and Albany-Saratoga drivers.
