Short Track Super Series Makes Annual BAPS Motor Speedway Visit Sunday, July 19

NEWBERRYTOWN, PA – The annual stop by the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco at BAPS Motor Speedway is set for Sunday, July 19.

The 19th edition of the York County Nationals again includes the STSS big-block/small-block Modifieds battling for championship points on the Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central. Central PA Legends Cars complete the doubleheader program.

This anticipated trip to the continually refurbished facility owned by Scott Gobrecht and managed by Kolten Gouse is the only STSS appearance at the red clay four-tenths-mile oval this season.

Three events have been completed on the Velocita-USA South Region this season in a trio of different states. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, Georgetown (Del.) Speedway hosted the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial the first weekend of March.

Maryland’s Potomac Speedway welcomed the STSS Modifieds for the first time ever on June 7, while Big Diamond Speedway – nestled in the Coal Region of Pennsylvania – was the site of the annual North-South Civil War on June 16 before a packed house.




Three different drivers have won in STSS Modified South Region action this season: Stewart Friesen at Georgetown, Matt Sheppard at Potomac and Billy Pauch Jr. at Big Diamond.

BAPS provides a neutral ground for the Modifieds, with the division not featured as a weekly attraction at the facility.

A 50-lap feature again highlights the program, with $5,000 reserved for the winner, $1,000 for the 10th-place finisher and $400 just to take the green flag. A number of special awards and bonuses are also in place for this event.

Friesen, the all-time leading winner on the series, is the defending York County Nationals winner.

For the 2020 edition, gates open at 4 p.m. Hot laps hit the track at 6:20 p.m., with racing at 7 p.m.

Adult admission is $25. Seniors (ages 60 and over) and Students (ages 13-17) pay $15. Kids 12 and under are FREE. Pit admission is $40, with no license required.

The event is open to in-person attendance and will be streamed live on Dirt Track Digest TV.
