Saint-Marcel-de-Richelieu, QUE – August 25, 2019 – The Super DIRTcar Series heads back north of the border to Quebec for the second swing of 2019. On Friday, September 6 the Series makes their second stop of the year at Autodrome Granby. Then, the next day the teams shuffle off to Le RPM Speedway, a high banked bullring. Don’t want until next year to knock these two Quebec tracks off your bucket list.
Earlier this season the Series storms into Autodrome Granby and put on another memorable show. Despite a massive red flag incident early in the race, in which all drivers walked or drove away, the race was exciting. Matt Sheppard raced wheel-to-wheel with Australian Peter Britten for the win.
Billy Decker, from Franklynville, NY, put on a show in the last race at Granby. The Gypsum Racing No. 91 was caught up in the huge wreck last race. However, with the damage mostly cosmetic, the team in red got Decker back on the track and he was just getting started.
Incredibly Decker raced up to fifth place, which means he could very well be the favorite going into the September 5 $7,500-to-win 100 lapper.
The next day, Saturday, September 7, the teams pack up and head to Le RPM Speedway, a dicey bowl ring in the great French-Canadian hinterland. HBR’s superb veteran driver Jimmy Phelps took the win last year. Can he go back-to-back?
From a go-kart track to hosting the premier Big Block Modified series in the Northeast and Canada, Le RPM Speedway has come a long way as a racing facility over the years.
This year the Series rolls into Le RPM to race for $7,500-to-win and $500-to-start. Will we see one of the Series rookies pick up their first win? Ryan Godown, Demetrios Drellos, and Jack Lehner have put together solid rookie seasons so far with the typical ups and downs of a first-year on the tour.
It’ll be a tough road to the front though as they’ll have to get through Larry Wight, Mike Mahaney, Danny Johnson, Rusty Smith, Paul St-Sauveur, Marcus Dinkins and more.
