ELBRIDGE, NY- May 23, 2013- In less than two weeks, the points chase for the Super DIRTcar Series championship title begins with the DIRTcar Hall of Fame 60 race at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park. Set for Wednesday, June 5, the first points event of the season for the Big-Block Modified tour may serve as a litmus test for the rest of the series."Rolling Wheels will probably be a good pH to see which cars are going to be fast and which guys are going to be in the championship hunt this year," said Matt Sheppard, who won the last three annual Hall of Fame events at Rolling Wheels as well as the last three Super DIRTcar Series titles. "As long as we come of there with a good run and start the series off the right way I think we'll be in good shape."
