STSS Northeast Stars Set To Battle Cajun Region's Best

SHREVEPORT, LA Bound for the Bayou. The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco treks back to Louisiana for the ‘Cajun Swing’ 2021 edition.

This year’s ‘Cajun Swing’ expands from last season’s three features in four nights, to five full programs of racing in five nights for the STSS Modifieds, culminating in the ‘Mods at the Marsh 75’ at Super Bee Speedway (Chatham, La.). The finale will be a 75-lap, $20,000-to-win feature event for the STSS Modifieds.

More than $138,500 has been posted in purse money for the five nights of STSS Modified racing at four venues: Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, La.), Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, La.), The Rev (Monroe, La.) and the recently rebranded Super Bee.

Some of the stars of the Northeast, including both 2021 STSS Modified champions, will face off with the growing list of racers in the STSS Cajun Region.

Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central Champion Mike Mahaney of King Ferry, N.Y., and Hurlock Auto & Speed Supply North Region Champion Matt Sheppard of Savannah, N.Y., will lead the stars of the Northeast to battle against the boys on the Bayou.

Sprakers, N.Y.’s Stewart Friesen, the all-time winningest driver on the STSS, will return to the Bayou along with Sarasota Springs, N.Y.’s Jack Lehner, who both attended the first annual ‘Cajun Swing.’ Ballston Spa, N.Y.’s Derrick McGrew Jr. and Tyler Siri and Eric Williams, both of Horseheads, N.Y., will also be in attendance for the second consecutive year in the Bayou State.

Some first timers from the Northeast planning to load up and head South include Ringoes, N.J.’s Ryan Godown, Johnstown, N.Y.’s Rocky Warner and Vernon, N.Y.’s Willy Decker among others.

Erick Rudolph was the winner of a non-sanctioned event on Louisiana soil last May during COVID-19 restrictions in the Northeast. The Ransomville, N.Y., driver returns for the ‘Cajun Swing’ in the Bayou State.

The Cajun Region Champion, Robeline, La.’s Caleb Dillard will bring the hometown boys with him, trying to strut their stuff against the best of the Northeast.

Dillard’s closest competitor in the Cajun Region points, Converse, La.’s Tommy Rascoe will also be on hand for the ‘Cajun Swing.’ Rascoe got to see many of the stars of the Northeast firsthand, after joining them in January for the ‘Sunshine Swing’ at Bubba (Fla.) Raceway Park.

Red Oak, Texas driver Jon White Jr., a winner at Big O Speedway, and Mansfield, La.’s Cody Robbins, a winner at Super Bee Speedway, both also plan to help defend the home turf across the five nights of racing.

It all begins Tuesday, November 9 at Boothill Speedway in a 40-lap, $4,000-to-win main event to kick off the five-night swing of racing.

All five events will be broadcast live to a national audience via FloRacing through the $150 annual subscription. Visit www.floracing.tv to subscribe.
