Story By: BRETT DEYO / SHORT TRACK SUPER SERIES – MILLSBORO, DE – Memorial Day weekend is often referenced as the unofficial kickoff to summer.
This year, as the country reflects on those who served and paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms, the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco kicks into overdrive with a pair of events and all four series in competition.
For the first time since 2016, the STSS returns to New Egypt (N.J.) Speedway on Thursday, May 23 with the ‘Dirty Jersey 6’ event.
