WOODHULL, NY – With a forecast of afternoon and evening rain looming, Woodhull Raceway’s promotional team and management of the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco have canceled the ‘Hustlin’ the High Banks 55’ scheduled for Tuesday night.
The event, sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts of Addison and Corning, Maple City Dodge and Two Rivers Timber, was to include the Halmar International North Region Modifieds (55 laps, $5,500 to win), Crate 602 Sportsman North Region (25 laps, $1,500 to win) and Street Stock Challenge.
With the once-in-a-lifetime $100,000-to-win Centennial Race looming at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, N.Y. – including a huge kickoff concert on Wednesday night – Woodhull promoter Ted White and series organizer Brett Deyo opted not to utilize a next-day rain date.
“The majority of our traveling teams have already stretched their help and time off with the Centennial event at Orange County this weekend, not to mention our fans who have planned to attend from Wednesday on,” Deyo said. “We will definitely be back at Woodhull in 2020 with our series as it is one of our favorite stops.”
The Woodhull cancelation marks the first of the 2019 season for the series.
Next up for the Halmar International North Region is the 12th running of the “Working Man’s Race” Short Track SuperNationals on Friday-Saturday October 11-12 at the rejuvenated Afton (N.Y.) Motorsports Park.
After a brief break, the STSS shifts into overdrive the next two weeks. First up is ‘Dirty Jersey’ at New Egypt (N.J.) Speedway Tuesday, August 20 featuring the STSS Modifieds ($6,000 to win) as part of the Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central plus Capitol Renegade United Racing Club (URC) 360 Sprint Cars and STSS Crate 602 Sportsman.
