Story By: JOE GRABIANOWSKI / DIRTCAR – BATAVIA, NY – Genesee Speedway in Batavia, NY and DIRTcar Racing have entered into a new partnership for the 2020 season. The Sportsman Modified division at Genesee Speedway will now be DIRTcar sanctioned, which includes upgraded support from Hoosier Racing Tire, VP Racing Fuels, and an increased PR presence across the board.
The DIRTcar Sportsman Modified division is one of the most successful formulas in racing today. The Sportsman’s reputation is built on the parity of race equipment, safety, and general affordability.
Genesee Speedway is home to many talented Sportsman teams from the region that will benefit from the DIRTcar Sanction,” noted promoter Jim Johnson. “We can’t thank DIRTcar enough for giving us the opportunity to come on board this season and look forward to working with all the officials.”
Top stars such as Oswego Chevy Performance 75 sportsman champion Kyle Inman, Jim Harbison, Cameron Tuttle, Dave Conant, Zach George, and others call the Genesee County Fairgrounds oval home.
All DIRTcar Sportsman Modified drivers are automatically featured in the Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Championship. Racer’s top 16 finishes in weekly and Series racing produce points for the year-long championship. Drivers, teams, and sponsors will also enjoy increased exposure through DIRTcar’s social media channels and weekly newsletter, which reaches nearly forty-thousand people.
A DIRTcar Sportsman Western Region Series event is also close to being finalized joining Ransomville, Merrittville, Humberstone, Freedom and Brighton Speedways in hosting events for the region that boasts a $1500 point fund to the top five. Home track and Region Bonus points are totaled. Then drivers can strive to be the overall DIRTcar Sportsman Champion by attending the year-end Fall Championship Challenge Events.
The sanction further strengthens the relationship between Genesee and DIRTcar Racing as this year Genesee Speedway welcomes the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series to Batavia, NY. The Outlaws will race for $10,000 on Friday, June 19, 2020. It’s going to be a huge year for Genesee.
