Story By: CHRIS MOORE / SHORT TRACK SUPER SERIES – DUNDEE, NY – Full steam ahead. The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco is set for a busy two weeks in New York State.
After a trip to Accord Speedway on May 10, the River Valley Builders North Region continues one week later (May 17) with the ‘Outlaw Showdown’ at Tyler Siri’s Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, N.Y.
The STSS big-block/small-block Modifieds return to the site of one the most exciting races of the 2021 season for a 50-lap, $5,000-to-win affair with a total purse of more than $26,000.
Waterloo, N.Y.’s Steve Paine won the 2021 edition, leading all 50 laps with the likes of Anthony Perrego, Mike Mahaney, Stewart Friesen and Matt Sheppard all within car-lengths of ‘The Hurricane’ at the end. The win was the first STSS triumph of Paine’s Hall of Fame career.
