Story By: NICK GRAZIANO / DIRTCAR – LAFARGEVILLE, NY – Harsh weather conditions, creating saturated grounds at Can-Am Speedway, and more unfavorable weather forecasted for the week have forced Super DIRTcar Series and track officials to postpone the Thunder on the 1000 Islands. The event will now take place on Wednesday, May 18.
Along with the Super DIRTcar Series, the DIRTcar Pro Stocks Series will also return for the new May 18 date.
“Tyler Bartlett and I agreed that the Super DIRTcar Series is such a marquee event on the Can-Am schedule every year that it needed a make-up date,” said Super DIRTcar Series Director Dean Reynolds. “He also mentioned that the response from the Pro Stock teams was through the roof, so we made sure to include them, as well.”
With the postponement of the Can-Am event, the Super DIRTcar Series 2022 championship season will now kickoff at Bridgeport Motorsports Park for the King of the Big Blocks on Tuesday, May 3. Then, the season will continue May 18 at Can-Am.
Before then, the DIRTcar Northeast season will commence on Saturday, April 30, with the DIRTcar 358 Modifieds – featuring several Super DIRTcar Series stars – at Fulton Speedway and the DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds East and North-US region Series at Airborne Speedway.
