Renegades of Dirt Debuts Saturday in Fayetteville

Up north, a frigid cold remains in the air but for the Renegades of Dirt a warm escape awaits this weekend.

The best modifieds in the business are ready to roll into Fayetteville, NC with a warm seventy degree forecast in the future and plenty of hot racing action on the card. After months of preview the countdown is drawing to a close and the return of the national Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour is set for Saturday night March 16th!

After observing the weather, race and series officials have set a new schedule for the weekend’s events. Friday’s preliminary program has been canceled. With forecasts staying steady at 80-90% chance of thunderstorms officials have decided to forego Fridays racing action. Drivers can also plan accordingly if needed with the earlier cancellation. Ensuring optimal Saturday track conditions officials is a top priority. Officials have decided not to fight steady rain during track prep on Friday with thunderstorms predicted feel like it is in the best interest of all to shift the focus to Saturdays premier $10,000 to win program.

Friday’s cancellation makes the series opener, a $10,000 to win “North Carolina Modified Nationals” completely one day show on Saturday March 16th for the Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour. Action is still set for Thursday night March 14th with the UMP DirtCar $1,000 to win “Knight of Champions”. However, a small format change has also been made to Thursdays program with Fridays cancellation. Fifteen drivers will be locked from the fan voting process spots 1-15.

The change comes to the remaining ten spots up for grabs as it will now be open to anyone who would like to attempt to race their way into spots 16-25. Therefore, if twenty additional cars decide to try and qualify for the race there will be two pill draw heat races taking the top five from each to fill the roster for the “Knight of Champion” event on Thursday. Open practice sessions also remain on the card for drivers whom wish to warm up for the weekend as well.

Saturday events remain unchanged with over $30,000 up for grabs during the NC Modified Nationals night alone. First place pays one of the biggest in all of modified racing $10,000 to win with $400 just to start for the 24-car field, tripling most one day modified purses.
