Weedsport Speedway - Jimmy Phelps

WEEDSPORT, NY – This Fourth of July can be spent in the fast lane at Weedsport Speedway as the Empire Super Sprints, DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds and the NY6A 600cc Micro Sprints take center stage at The Port on Sunday, July 4.

A full evening of entertainment will be on the docket to celebrate Independence Day as Chasing Neon will rock the midway beginning at 5 p.m., along with a spectacular fireworks display once the sun goes down.

The action on the track will be highlighted by the Empire Super Sprints CNY Speedweek finale, marking the first trip of the season for the winged sprint cars to Weedsport.

The full cast of ESS super stars will be on hand for the July 4 special including championship point leaders Jason Barney, Davie Franek, Paulie Colagiovanni, Dylan Swiernik and Danny Varin. Add in the likes of Jeff Cook, Sammy Reakes IV, Joe Trenca, Denny Peebles, Shawn Donath and more and the night will be filled with fireworks on track and in the sky.

The DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds will also take on Weedsport this Independence Day for their third event of the season at Weedsport as part of the Stirling Lubricants and Champion Racing Oil Modified Series.




Mat Williamson has dominated Weedsport so far this year in Modified competition winning both events held in 2021, including the Super DIRTcar Series Heroes Remembered 100.
