Super DIRTcar Series Releases 2019 Schedule

The 2019 Super DIRTcar Series is looking bigger and better than ever before. Just recently released, their 33-race schedule, has a few more upgrades added in to make for a premier season.

The Super DIRTcar Series will once again span across the country from Florida to Quebec this coming season with the best drivers in Big Block Modified racing.

After a year hiatus, the Big Block Modifieds will be making their grand return to the world-famous Eldora Speedway for a $10,000 to win Super DIRT Week Qualifier. Another return to the schedule will be a visit to Can-Am Speedway, which is also be a lucrative $10,000 to win Super DIRT Week Qualifier.

With the new reigns as Northeast Director, Dean Reynolds did everything he could to put together a schedule that is both exciting for the fans and travel friendly for the teams.

A total of eight race tracks will award $10,000 or more to win along with guaranteed starting positions for the annual NAPA Super DIRT Week at Oswego Speedway. A few new qualifiers added on for 2019 will be held at Airborne Speedway Park, Mohawk International Raceway, Eldora Speedway, and Can-Am Speedway.

Every race will carry a minimum of $7,500 to-win. Another highlight will be the increase in the purse throughout the field, guaranteeing $1,000 for 10th-place and $500 to start.

July will be the month of money with $62,000 going to winners alone in a span of seven races, allowing for one very profitable month.

2018 saw Super DIRTcar Series Champ, Matt Sheppard, collect over $66,000, while second-place finisher, Erick Rudolph, brought home a whopping $52,500. With the lucrative increase in earnings, 2019 will show an opportunity to bring in even more for series drivers.

The DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park will once again kick off the 2019 Big Block Modified season with five full nights of action February 12-18. The first race in the northeast will be held at Can-Am Speedway on April 13thfor the Thunder in the Thousand Islands 100.
