Story By: DAVE MEDLER / BREWERTON & FULTON SPEEDWAY – BALDWINSVILLE, NY – Major marketing partner DOT Foods located at 200 Monarch Drive in Liverpool, NY, will return for another season as the title sponsor for the highly popular DIRTcar Sportsman that compete weekly at both Brewerton Speedway and Fulton Speedway in 2022.
Dot Foods Sportsman will continue to race with a DIRTcar sanction at both speedways, with Hoosier Tire Weekly points and home track bonus points up for grabs. The last three overall DIRTcar Sportsman Series Champions have been either a Fulton or Brewerton Speedway regular.
In 2021 the Brewerton Speedway Sportsman Track Champion was not decided until the final points night with Zach Sobotka being crowned Champion narrowly edging Alan Fink.
At the Fulton Speedway 107 Sportsman drivers ran at least one feature on the ‘Highbanks’. After a season full of side-by-side racing, Matt Janczuk won the championship by a slim ten-points over Chris Mackey.
Fulton Speedway will open for the season on Saturday, April 23 with open practice from 2-4 pm, followed by the rescheduled $2000-to-win Rocket Racing Setups Enduro 200. Then on Friday and Saturday, April 29-30, the Speedway will host the Highbank Holdup Weekend featuring the DIRTcar Sportsman Series and ESS Sprint Cars on Friday and the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series on Saturday along with point openers for Sportsman and Hobby Stocks.
The Brewerton Speedway “D-Shaped Dirt Demon’ will race back to life on Friday, May 6 with the season opener for the Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds, plus the AmeriCU Credit Union Mod Lites and 4-Cylinders along with the Dot Foods DIRTcar Sportsman.
