Weedsport’s All-Star Showcase Mod Winner To Earn 13th Starting Spot For Heroes Remembered 100
Story By: DAN KAPUSCINSKI / WEEDSPORT SPEEDWAY – WEEDSPORT, NY – The DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds will share center stage with the Tezo’s All-Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series as part of Weedsport Speedway’s season opening All-Star Showcase on Sunday, May 21.
Aside from a $4,000 paycheck, the night’s Modified winner will also be guaranteed to start 13th or better in the upcoming Heroes Remembered 100 at Weedsport on Sunday, May 28.
With a stout field of Modifieds expected on May 21 including Mat Williamson, the most recent winner on the Super DIRTcar Series, the Modified portion of the All-Star Showcase will no doubt act as a tune-up for the Super DIRTcar Series Heroes Remembered 100 on May 28.
In addition to a $4,000 pay day for the winner, the guarantee of at least the 13th starting position in the $7,500 to win Heroes Remembered 100 will be a crucial reward in the event that driver does that make the re-draw on May 28.
“We’re excited for this doubleheader to open our season on May 21 and look forward to a solid field of Modifieds ahead of the Heroes Remembered 100 on May 28,” said Weedsport Speedway promoter, Jimmy Phelps. “With so many drivers expected to attend our first two events of the season, the guaranteed starting spot for our May 21 winner is a nice way to tie the two events together even further.”
Joining the Modifieds on May 21 will be the All-Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Cars, making their first visit to Weedsport since June of 2019.
This year’s return should see a good mix of All-Star regulars and Pennsylvania standouts including Zeb Wise, Tyler Courtney, Cap Henry, Parker-Price Miller, Chris Windom, Hunter Schuerenberg and more.
