All Five DIRTcar Northeast Series Running this Weekend

Modifieds and Pro Stocks at Granby, Sportsmans at Ransomville, Merrittville, and Port Colborne; 358-Modifieds on Asphalt at Airborne

WEEDSPORT, N. Y. – September 5, 2012 – The DIRTcar Northeast Series heat up this coming weekend with races throughout the region for all five series.

The Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series, DIRTcar 358-Modified Series, and DIRTcar Pro Stock Series head to Autodrome Granby in Granby, Quebec. The 358-Modified Series runs Friday, Sept. 7, and the Super DIRTcar Series and Pro Stock Series run Saturday, Sept. 8.

Big-Block Modified driver Matt Sheppard is still running off momentum from Sunday’s Super DIRTcar Series win at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park September 2, and the two-time series titlist is looking to make it two in a row at the 11th feature event in the Super DIRTcar Series, the “Dominique Carriers, Group Maska, Performance NC Gros Block ‘100.’”

“We’re going to bring a good race car with us,” said Sheppard, who also won the Super DIRTcar Series event at Autodrome Granby in 2011. It’s just a place I enjoy racing at. There’s usually a big crowd. The fans are great up there. It’s just a fun atmosphere.

The fourth DIRTcar Pro Stock Series race, the “Dominique Carriers, Group Maska, Performance NC ’50’” also takes on Autodrome Granby Saturday, Sept. 8, and with only one event between then and the championship during NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week XLI, the competition is heating up. With track bonus points taking defending champion Joey Ladouceur to the lead over Rob Yetman by a margin of just 20 points, the weekend’s race is sure to have a dramatic impact on series standings.

The final series running at Autodrome Granby this weekend is the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series Friday, Sept. 7, for the “Dominique Carriers, Group Maska, Performance NC 358-Modified ‘75.’” Like Sheppard, 358-Modified driver Dale Planck is coming off a stunning victory Sunday, Sept. 2, that put him in the series point lead. Runner-up Mat Williamson trails by just 38 points.

Autodrome Granby is not the only track to see DIRTcar Northeast Series action this weekend. The DIRTcar Sportsman Modified Series, which has only had one race thus far this season, gets rolling with three races over the weekend. Friday, September 7, the series stops at Ransomville Speedway in Ransomville, N. Y., Saturday, Sept. 8 at Merrittville Speedway in Merrittville, Ontario, and Sunday, Sept. 9, at Humberstone Speedway in Port Colborne, Ontario.

The unique DIRTcar 358-Modified Asphalt Series has its final race of the season Sunday, Sept. 9, at Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh, N. Y.
