BREWERTON — Top drivers in the Big-Block Modifieds will compete Friday at Brewerton Speedway in the Duel at the Demon 100.
The 100-lap Super DIRTcar Series race pays $7,500 to the winner and $500 to start.
With the season winding down, Super DIRTcar Series drivers are out to pick up every point possible. A number of full-time series drivers race in the Hoosier Racing Tire weekly championship at Brewerton Speedway.
The Gypsum Racing team will field its team in full force. Larry Wight, Pat Ward, and Billy Decker have all picked up wins at Brewerton in weekly competition. They figure to be difficult to beat on their home turf. Wight won the Brewerton track title, and is coming off a series win in Quebec.
Baldwinsville’s Jimmy Phelps also has a win this year at Brewerton. Phelps finished fifth in Brewerton points and rides sixth in Super DIRTcar Series points. Phelps and his team know they need to take advantage of their home track.
The top three in Super DIRTcar Series points are in a tight battle. Matt Sheppard is the current leader with Mat Williamson and Erick Rudolph hot on his tail. Sheppard and Rudolph have traded wins all season long, while Williamson has been consistently strong.
Ryan Godown leads Super DIRTcar Series rookies in points, but Demetrios Drellos and Jack Lehner are also making strides.
Mike Mahaney needs a strong finish going into the season’s homestretch. He’s running 11th in points, but that does not reflect the strong runs the Huttig machine has had. Unfortunately for Mahaney, motor problems have hindered him in the second half of the year.
Other Brewerton Speedway regulars including Tim Sears Jr., Tom Sears Jr., Chris Hile, Pat Ward, Chad Phelps, Tyler Trump, Andrew Ferguson, and others will be looking to keep the Demon cash at home.
Universal Metal Works presents the fifth annual Super DIRTcar Series Duel at the Demon 100. The Brewerton card will also include a 50-lap feature program for the DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series.
Pits will open at 3:30 p.m., and the grandstands open at 5:30 p.m. Hot laps starting at 6:20 p.m. and heats beginning at 7:30 p.m.
