LAFARGEVILLE, NY – Summertime’s racing schedule can be a busy time for tracks, teams and fans. Big money special events bring out the sport’s best names to battle the home track regulars for their share of the glory. Can Am Speedway hits the ground running Wednesday, June 20th with a 50 lap Big Block/358 Modified showdown, with the winner cashing a cheque for $5000. Also on the docket will be a 30 lap Sportsman-Modified headliner, for a $1000 payday. Tyler Bartlett – from the LaFargeville, New York oval’s promotional team – says the mid-week date promises to deliver some edge of your seat excitement.
“Our Friday night fan favourites do a great job week-after-week,” said Bartlett. “We’ve had a great response from drivers and teams who are excited about the chance to take some North Country cash back home, but they’ll in for a tough fight if they think getting to victory lane at Can Am will be a walk in the park.”
On raceday, Bartlett will trade his promoter’s hat for a helmet as he leads the locals into the five grand fray. Names like Jordan McCreadie, Nick Webb and 2-time 2018 feature winner Danny O’Brien; along with Tim Fuller and Billy Dunn – a pair of former Super Dirt Week big block champions – are expected to sign-in and tackle a list of DIRTcar Racing’s best, including Mike Mahaney, Peter Britten, Willy Decker, Pat Ward and more. He says the show is more than a high-speed cash grab.
“Can Am regulars in the 358 Mod and Sportsman divisions will get show-up points that will count toward the 2018 track championship,” according to Bartlett. “We wanted to give the teams who support us throughout the year some extra incentive to be here. Plus, there will be a $300 bonus paid-out to the top finishing small block, no matter where they wind-up in the running order.”
Its not too late to add this summer starter to your racing calendar. Don’t miss the $5000 to win 50 lap Big Block/Small Block – Wednesday, June 20th – at Can Am Speedway.
