Super DIRTCar Series Upping Purse In 2019

The new Super DIRTcar Series and DIRTcar Northeast Director, Dean Reynolds, said one of his top priorities taking on the roll as the series director will be to help drivers and teams by raising the purse for the Super DIRTcar Series stars and cars.

Following the Super DIRTcar Series awards banquet this past weekend, the series announced an increase in the purse as well as an all new weekly championship with Hoosier Racing Tire.

It was announced that for the first time in 15 years the Super DIRTcar Series purse has substantially been increased. Every Big Block Modified race on the Super DIRTcar Series schedule will carry a minimum of $7,500 to win, with several races being at the $10,000 level for the NAPA Super DIRT Week Qualifiers, including the return to the ‘Big E,’ Eldora Speedway. The starting money has also increased by $200, it will now be $500 to start.

Hoosier Racing Tire has also announced an all-new weekly championship with tracks, awarding points for Big Block Modifieds, 358 Modifieds, Sportsman, and Pro Stocks. The championship will be decided by a driver’s best 16 finishes from their home tracks, where $37,000 in cash and $8,000 in VP Racing Fuels certificates will be distributed throughout the 2019 season.

With 20+ races across the northeast, these teams need help with traveling expenses and general racing costs. The increased purse structure will help more teams be able to afford to come back to the races again and again which should increase the strength of the field tremendously. In return it will provide even better racing for the fans throughout the entire field.

Looking ahead to 2019, the Super DIRTcar Series is showing that strength is in numbers. With the purse increase and new championship opportunities with giveaways, a few drivers have already been announced to be making their way back to the lucrative tour come 2019. Between the promoters, tracks, and drivers, they are all working together to make the Super DIRTcar Series bigger and better than ever.

Be sure to stay tuned for more announcements within the next few weeks as tracks and teams get ready for the upcoming season.
