WOODHULL, NY – During the 2018 car show this past weekend in Big Flats, NY, plans were finalized for the 2018 Woodhull Raceway Street Stock Challenge Series.
The series will feature a three-race challenge format, with drivers earning points toward the challenge series championship that will pay a point fund to the top 10 in points. The three challenge races will take place on Saturday April 21, Wednesday August 8 and wrapping up with the ‘Woodhull 100’ on Saturday September 22.
The Challenge Series point fund has been posted at $1,625 which will be distributed amongst the top ten in points. Also included in the Challenge Series program will be contingency awards courtesy of Sunoco Race Fuels, American Racer Tire and great support from Woodhull’s Street Stock division sponsor- Joe Willcox Performance Automatics.
September’s running of the ‘Woodhull 100’ also carries a lap sponsor program that has generated $4,000-$5,000 in additional incentive dollars and prizes to be distributed annually at that event. Turn 5 Media will also sponsor a $55 Hard Charger Bonus for each of the three races on the Challenge Series.
The Challenge Series opener will fall on the second scheduled race of 2018 at Woodhull on April 21. The 30-lap race will pay $400-to-win and will carry an overall purse well over $2,000.
Race number two will not come until Wednesday August 8 when Brett and Heather Deyo’s Short Track Super Series comes to town. Street Stocks have been added to that three-division card and will tout a $500-to-win race that will be 25 laps in length.
The third and final race will come on September 22 during the grueling ‘Woodhull 100.’ A 100-lap event paying a cool $1,000-to-win. Glenn Whritenour used patience to win the 2017 running of the 100, sending Kurt Stebbins home disappointed after Stebbins led 92 of the 100 scheduled laps. With over $11,000 in purse money and contingency money and prizes, the ‘Woodhull 100’ will not disappoint in 2018.
The Challenge Series points will follow Woodhull’s weekly points system. Heats pay out 3 points to the winner, 2 points for second and 1 point for third place. Features pay 30 points to the winner, 25 points for second, 24 points for third and a one point gap for each position on back through the field.

· Any steel small block engine
· Must run a two barrel carburetor
· 10 inch maximum width on any tire
