SDS Big Blocks, ESS Sprints, DIRTcar Pro Stocks ALL in action September 4!
WEEDSPORT, NY (August 21, 2017) – Weedsport Speedway will celebrate Labor Day Weekend in style on Monday, September 4 featuring the Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds, the ESS Sprint Car 360 Open, and the DIRTcar Pro Stock Series in the ‘Labor Day Double Play’ at The Port presented by Parts Plus and powered by Wix Filters.
The trifecta of action will be highlighted by the second stop of the season by the Super DIRTcar Series Big Blocks, who first visited Weedsport back on July 11 for the Hall of Fame 100. That event was a barn burner, won by Stewart Friesen, and the same action is again expected on September 4.
Friesen will once again look to tame the Super DIRTcar Series faithful including Billy Decker, Larry Wight, Brett Hearn, Pat Ward, Matt Sheppard, Tim Fuller, Max McLaughlin, Jimmy Phelps, Peter Britten, and more as they race for the top prize of $7,500.
Joining the Big Blocks on the main bill will be the 360 Sprint Car Open with some of the best winged sprint racers in the area returning to Weedsport yet again.
The ‘Labor Day Double Play’ will be the second winged Sprint Car race of the season at The Port, and the third overall including the Ultimate Wingless Shootout on June 25.
Top winged combatants such as Jason Barney, Coleman Gulick, Paul Kinney, Chuck Hebing, Matt Tanner, and Matt Billings are again expected along with Modified ace, Larry Wight – who will likely play double duty racing in his Modified as well.
The DIRTcar Pro Stock Series event on September 4 will be the sixth of the season on tour.
Robbie Speed and Rob Yetman have been the men to beat, each sharing two wins a piece on the season. Racers Steve LaRochelle and Jocelyn Roy have also graced victory lane this season and each will look to continue their momentum at Weedsport.
Yetman currently leads the standings on the DIRTcar Pro Stock tour over Dan Older, Roy, Jay Corbin, and Bruno Cyr.
Pit gates will open at 3 p.m. on September 4 with grandstand gates opening at 4 p.m. Qualifying will hit the Speedway at 5:40 p.m. with opening ceremonies set for 6 p.m.
General admission seating is available on September 4 for $25, with reserved seating set at $29. Students 17 & under will be admitted FREE into General Admission seating on September 4 for the Speedway’s Back to School Special.
