BILLY DUNN & JUSTIN HAERS JOIN STSS SUNSHINE SWING AT ALL-TECH RACEWAY

LAKE CITY, FL – A pair of New York-based racers will dip their toes into the water with the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco this February.

Billy Dunn and Justin Haers have each filed an entry for the STSS inaugural ‘Sunshine Swing’ at All-Tech Raceway in Lake City, Fla. Both will compete in the STSS Modified portion of the mini-series taking place at the half-mile track west of Jacksonville and north of Gainesville in North Central Florida Feb 5-8.

STSS Modifieds and Crate 602 Sportsman hit the track for an open practice (Wednesday) followed by three consecutive nights of racing (Thursday-Saturday).

Dunn, of Watertown, N.Y., makes the 1,208-mile trek to Florida. Like Haers, Dunn is making his debut with the Short Track Super Series. Dunn has the backing of car owner Ray Graham to pilot his silver-and-florescent orange No. 49 on the ‘Sunshine Swing.’

Haers, of Phelps, N.Y., has enlisted the support of Delaware car owner and sponsor Jake Marine for selected events during the 2020 season. Due to his limited crew help for the Florida trek, Haers plans to compete in only the Friday and Saturday night events at All-Tech, which incidentally pay $7,500 and $10,000 to win, respectively.

Entries are being received at the STSS office every day. Keep posted to the series Facebook (Short Track Super Series), Twitter and Instagram (@shorttrackss) for daily updates.

EMPA SELECTS STSS, GEORGETOWN & FONDA FOR PROMOTIONAL EFFORT OF THE YEAR

Short Track Super Series, Fonda & Georgetown Speedways Selected As EMPA ‘Promotional Effort of the Year’

MILLSBORO, DE – BD Motorsports Media LLC has been selected by the membership of the Eastern Motorsport Press Association (EMPA) to receive the ‘Promotional Effort of the Year’ recognition.

Founded in 1969, EMPA is an organization of professional writers, broadcasters, announcers, videographers and photographers working in the motorsports industry, along with associate and corporate members.

The ceremony and awards dinner, presented by NASCAR, takes place on Saturday, Jan. 11 at the Crowne Plaza in King of Prussia, Pa., as part of the 47th annual EMPA convention.

The distinction – voted upon by members of EMPA – recognizes the BD Motorsports Media-run Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco, Fonda (N.Y.) Speedway and Georgetown (Del.) Speedway.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the EMPA membership,” Brett Deyo of BD Motorsports Media LLC said. “This is a credit to our whole team. There are so many people who work hard throughout the race season on our behalf to keep a touring series and two tracks, located six hours apart, operating successfully.”

The Short Track Super Series broke new ground in 2019 with the most lucrative dirt Modified championship payout in the nation. By winning the Insinger Performance/Sunoco Race Fuels ‘Grand Championship’ encompassing the STSS North and South regions and the American Racer Cup, Matt Sheppard of Savannah, N.Y., will receive $58,500 cash.

The STSS Modified circuit completed events in four states – New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania – while maintaining an average car count of 41.7 per event. 291 competitors took part in at least one Modified event. The Crate 602 Sportsman series saw 232 entrants received over the 11 total races.

The first season for BD Motorsports Media promotion at the historic Fonda Speedway saw an upswing in competitor participation and fans in the grandstand. Among the season highlights were the $53,000-to-win Fonda 200 in September, the nationally televised on MAV-TV ‘Firecracker 50’ in July and a massive ‘Dollar Night’ in May featuring $1 grandstand admission.

A specials-only format at Georgetown Speedway included a number of high-profile events including the two-day Mid-Atlantic Championship Weekend with a pay structure of nearly $90,000, the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial and the ‘Blast at the Beach’ filmed for national television by the cameras of MAV-TV.
