It’s back!!!!! This coming Wednesday night we start installment #1 of Riverhead Rewind. This is where we watch the racing activity from the 2015 season and TJ Halpins will buy dinner for two for the winners. Opening Night was a dandy in 2015. In Legend competition Big $$$ Richie Davidowitz would take down the win. The Blunderbust put on another great show with talented Hot Shoe Jack Handley Jr. In for the win. The Super Pro Trucks had the defending Champion Lou Maestri coming home as the winner. In Charger action perhaps a little foreshadowing for the season as John Baker was in Victory Lane, the same way he ended 2014. In the Late Models Jeremy McDermott would have a great start to the year and find the Winners Circle on Opening Night. In Figure 8 action it was a messy one but 1st time winner Gary Fritz Jr. Was able to stay out of trouble for his 1st career win. In the Modifieds which will be a normal sight in 2015 winning both features was Tom Rogers Jr. Come down keep your racing fix going and see some great people and have some amazing food.
The series then takes on Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio on July 21
CONCORD, N.C. – Nov. 12, 2015 – The Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds will return to Eldora Speedway in 2016 for the first time in a decade.
The series takes on the historic half-mile track in Rossburg, Ohio on Tuesday, July 19 and Wednesday, July 20. The Big-Block Modifieds will run a full series points event on Tuesday and an invitational event on Wednesday when it joins the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
“After a decade absence we are excited to return to Eldora Speedway for two big days of heart-stopping, ground-pounding action from the Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds,” said Super DIRTcar Series Series Director Mike Perrotte.
The series last competed at Eldora in August 2006. It was the third trip for the series to the track. That night, Tim Fuller battled Billy Decker for the win. Fuller joined Brett Hearn and Danny Johnson as Eldora’s only Super DIRTcar Series winners.
“These two days are an incredible opportunity to see one of the premier dirt car series in the country share the stage with one of the premier asphalt series in the country at the legendary half mile,” said General Manager of DIRTcar Northeast Jeff Hachmann.
Tickets go on sale Dec. 14, 2015 and are available by visiting EldoraSpeedway.com.
Before returning to the Northeast, the Super DIRTcar Series will continue its run through Ohio with a trip to the half-mile Sharon Speedway on Thursday, July 21. The event adds to the already rich history of big-block modified racing at the Hartford, Ohio-track.
