Field Set for STSS “Return to Racing” at Tri-County Racetrack in North Carolina May 21 & 22

BRASSTOWN, NC – The field is set.

Following a drawing on Facebook LIVE on Sunday afternoon, a field of 31 cars has been set for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco “Return to Racing” on Thursday, May 21 and Friday, May 22 at Tri-County Racetrack in Brasstown, N.C.

Series organizer Brett Deyo made a “game-time” decision to pull a dozen numbers to accompany the 19 invited STSS Top-15 point drivers who accepted – North and South – setting the field for the first-ever trip to the Tarheel State.

Two nights of racing are planned: a 35-lap, $3,000-to-win main event on Friday and a 40-lap, $5,000-to-win program on Saturday. A minimum field of 24 cars will start each night. Should a sponsor be found, that number could increase or B-Mains could be added.

These events will be broadcast LIVE on Dirt Track Digest TV starting at 7 p.m. each night. Here is the link to watch the event:
