WEEDSPORT, NY (September 11, 2018) – Weedsport Speedway’s Super DIRT Week Kick-Off, presented by Ferris Industries, featuring the DIRTcar 358-Modified St. Lawrence Radiology 100 on Wednesday, October 3 has been added to the 2018 national television lineup for SPEED SPORT and MAVTV.
Boasting one of the most diverse racing schedules in all of the country, the DIRTcar 358-Modifieds now join a SPEED SPORT television series that has included the Super DIRTcar Series Big Blocks, USAC Sprint Cars, RUSH Late Models, and ESS Sprints.
“Unfortunately, weather forced us to cancel our Labor Day program, but that now gives us the opportunity to feature the DIRTcar 358-Modifieds and Super DIRT Week on national television,” said Weedsport Speedway promoter, Jimmy Phelps. “We’re once again pleased to work alongside Weedsport Productions, SPEED SPORT and MAVTV to highlight our facility and bring exciting open wheel racing to our fans across the country.”
The St. Lawrence Radiology 100 will be tape delayed and an airdate will be announced as soon as it is available.
The voice of northeast Modified racing, Shane Andrews, will once again host the one-hour broadcast with Oswego Speedway Small Block Supermodified and DIRTcar Sportsman driver, Dan Kapuscinski, joining Andrews in the booth.
Rich Vleck will once again provide coverage behind the scenes and on pit road.
