With around a dozen or so races left in the big block modified season, some of the highest paying races of the year are among them. First, on Thursday the Super Dirt Car Series will make its third trip back to the D-Shaped Dirt Demon, Brewerton Speedway, in yet another attempt to complete the show that has been postponed twice by inclement weather. The night will start with the running of heat 4, as the first three have already been completed.
The Super Dirt Car Series is in the homestretch, with each of the last four remaining races worth 150 points to the winner instead of the usual 100. Major point swings like this can change the outlook of the championship in a heartbeat. A broken shock tower or a flat tire can make or break a driver’s season. “Super” Matt Sheppard in the HBR 9h comes into the race after a 5th place finish at the Brockville Speedway after unloading the backup car due to a vicious rollover that took place on lap 5 of the heat race. Sheppard has remained the point’s leader, and extended his lead to 103 points over second place, which changed hands after Brett Hearn struggled in the feature and finished 15th, one lap down.
Billy Decker took the second spot away from Hearn with an 8th place finish. Look for both Sheppard and Decker to lead the way Thursday night as they finished 1st and 3rd in the track point’s standings respectively. Also, keep an eye on the 27J of the Doctor Danny Johnson, as he won the Hurricane 100, a small block race of 100 laps that took place at the track on Thursday of Super Dirt Week.
