BREWERTON, NY — The Beasts of the Northeast have caught the scent of a demon – a “1/3-mile D-shaped dirt demon” known to New Yorkers as the famous Brewerton Speedway. With their helmets in hand and 800-hp monsters under the hood, the stars of the Super DIRTcar Series will return to battle this tricky demon Tuesday, Aug. 17, for The Demon 100.
Superstars like Larry Wight, Billy Decker, and Chris Hile made a name for themselves at the Brewerton track; now they, and the rest of the stacked Big Block Modified field, will look for glory on the biggest stage. With it will come a $10,000 payday and a guaranteed starting spot for the 49th NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week (Oct. 6-10).
“We wanted to bring the Super DIRTcar Series back to one of its most vital home tracks,” said DIRTcar Racing CEO Brian Carter. “Brewerton Speedway has been a staple in the Central New York racing scene for decades and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the Super DIRTcar Series back to this fan-favorite track.”
In 1973, Will Cagle won the first Series race at Brewerton Speedway. Then 20 years later “Canada Joe” Joe Plazek put his name in the record books to ignite a tradition of Series races at Brewerton. Matt Sheppard, the seven-time Series champion, holds the Series record with five Brewerton victories.
The ⅓-mile track produces exciting wheel-to-wheel action on a weekly basis with its tight entry into Turn 1 and then fast, sweeping layout in Turns 3 and 4. Its shape is like no other and combined with the stars of the Super DIRTcar Series, The Demon 100 is destined for a hell of a 100-lap show.
In addition to the Big Block Modifieds — with a purse in excess of $35,000 — the DIRTcar Sportsman will also be in racing in a 30-lap Feature with purse over $4,000.
