FULTON, NY – After a successful Test & Tune this past Saturday, the Fulton Speedway is primed for a big two-day show this Friday and Saturday, April 26-27 with the ‘Highbank Holdup weekend featuring the Modified Super DIRTcar Series, DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series and Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints.

In the DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series, Shane Pecore made the long tow from Canada payoff as he took the big win over Matt Janczuk, Kevin Root, Jessica Power and Dave Marcuccilli.
Saturday, April 27 will see the stars and cars of the ground pounding Modified Super DIRTcar Series do battle in the ‘Highbank Holdup 100’. Joining the SDS will be the first track points race for the DOT Foods DIRTcar Sportsman and the Billy Whittaker Cars & Trux RUSH Late Models.
Fans of Modified Super DIRTcar Series regular Billy Decker from Unadilla, NY got really excited when it was announced he would be teaming again with car owner John Wight and crew chief Scott Jeffery and be back behind the wheel of the Gypsum Express/Stadium International Trucks/LJL Kevlar Racing Engines.No.91/Bicknell. Not only is Decker a former Fulton Speedway track champion, he is in the top-five in track feature wins and has three-straight ‘Highbank Holdup 100’ victories coming into Saturday.
Larry Wight who is the defending Super DIRTcar Week – Billy Whittaker’s Cars & Trux Modified 200 winner and the 2019 DIRTcar Nationals Modified champion will be looking to keep the $7,500-to-win ‘Highbank Holdup 100’ cash at his home track driving his potent FX Caprara Chevy/Tracey Road Equipment/NAPA/Penske Racing Shocks/No.99L/Bicknell. Wight has a DIRTcar Big Block Modifed and DIRTcar 358 Modified track titles in his résumé at the Fulton Speedway.
Another tour regular with a lot of Fulton Speedway accomplishments is Jimmy Phelps from nearby Baldwinsville, NY. Driving the J&B Installations/HBR/Mohawk Northeast/No.98H/Teo. Phelps has track championships and three prestigious Outlaw 200 wins that makes him a contender every time he unloads his car at the speedway.
