The series returned in June of 2004 with Brett “The Jet” Hearn standing in victory lane. The last appearance for the SDS was back in April of 2009 and it was one of the hometown favorites the “Diamond Cutter” himself Duane Howard who beat the SDS regulars that night to win the race. There was a race scheduled in 2014 but it was cancelled due to rain.
