Brewerton, NY – Intense point battles for the Track Championship in the Modifieds and Sportsman plus the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints make the kickoff to the Labor Day Weekend a festival of speed at the Brewerton Speedway Friday September 3.
Racing on the ‘D-Shaped Dirt Demon’ will feature the Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds. DOT Foods DIRTcar Sportsman. AmeriCU Credit Union Mod Lites and the highflying Winged Warriors of the popular Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints.
It is anyone’s guess after a season long full of ups and downs of weekly battles who will be crowned with a coveted Track Championship in the Modifieds and Sportsman this Friday night.
Jimmy Phelps and Larry Wight have traded the top of the Modified points back and forth with neither having more than one feature win at one of the toughest tracks in the Northeast to get a feature win.
Most of the season, the top-three in the Sportsman points, have seen Zach Sobotka, Alan Fink and Amy Holland appear to be tied together by magnets with neither getting a big upper hand in their finishes. Chris Mackey and Tyler Murray have been right there to take advantage of any of them to have a subpar race night.
Top-Five Division Points:
(Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds) 1. Jimmy Phelps (616). 2. Larry Wight (606). 3. Tim Sears Jr. (570). 4. Chris Hile (552). 5. Billy Decker (521).
