Weedsport, NY — April 28, 2010 – By Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing Northeast PR Director
Early spring precipitation combined with unseasonably cold temperatures have delayed the 2010 Hoosier Tire-VP Racing Fuels Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock Championship Series opener one month, with top full-fender point chasers now preparing for their customary haul to Cornwall (Ont.) Motor Speedway for the ‘Minute Auto Wash 50’ on Sunday, May 23.
Rain forced Can-Am Motorsports Park officials to scrap the entire weekend card in Mid-April, moving the 16th annual tour-lifter north of the border for the first time in series history.
So far Glen Ridge Motorsports Park (Fri.), Lebanon Valley Speedway (Sat.) and Fonda Speedway (Sat.) have been the lone tracks in New York State to defy the weatherman, with Pennsylvania ovals Lernerville Speedway and Pittsburgh’s Penn Motor Speedway also running Pro Stock events on the DIRTcar Northeast circuit to help launch a new decade.
Joining the aforementioned Empire State trio as they play host to DIRTcar Pro Stocks every week this season will be Mohawk Int’l Raceway (May 7 opener), autodromes Granby (May 7) and Drummond (May 15), and Cornwall (May 16).
For additional tour information, please contact Pro Stock Series Director Brian Mulligan (613/938-6751) or DIRTcar Racing Northast Director of Competition & Track Sanctioning Joe Skotnicki (704/796-4566) during normal business hours. More about the entire circuit is posted on the DIRTcar homepage at www.dirtcar.com.
Cornwall Motor Speedway (613/938-3945) http://www.cornwallspeedway.com is located off Highway 401, Eastbound using exit 786 to Power Dam Drive and West bound taking exit 789 to Brookdale Avenue, then following the posted signs from both directions.
