Back to the Points: Short Track Super Series Title Fights Resume Sunday at Potomac Speedway
BUDD’S CREEK, MD – The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco is back to point racing.
This Sunday (June 7), the STSS Modifieds and Crate 602 Sportsman roll into Potomac Speedway in Budd’s Creek, Md., for the first time ever. The ‘Battle at Budd’s Creek’ offers points toward the Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central in both divisions.
The STSS fired off its South Region championship fights in March at Georgetown (Del.) Speedway with the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial. Days later, the entire country shut down due to the emergence of COVID-19.
Now, after a non-points swing for through the Carolinas, it’s back to business for the STSS.
With the red clay high banks of Potomac Speedway as a backdrop, the STSS Modifieds race 50 laps for $5,000 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to start. STSS Crate 602 Sportsman battle for $1,500 to win and $100 to start in a 25-lap main.
After the March 7 program at Georgetown, Stewart Friesen emerges with the STSS Modified South Region point lead over Craig Von Dohren, Tyler Dippel, Billy Pauch Jr., Danny Bouc, Larry Wight, Jordan Watson, Jimmy Horton, Richie Pratt Jr. and Alex Yankowski.
The STSS Crate 602 Sportsman division has Jim Housworth at the top of the standings over Scott Hitchens, Joe Toth, Sammy Martz Jr., Jeff Brown, Tim Hartman Jr., Adam White, Michael White, James Hill and Anthony Tramontana.
“We are looking to get back points racing for our racers,” STSS organizer Brett Deyo said. “The goal is to complete eight South Region events by the end of the year so both our Modifieds and Crate 602 Sportsman receive their full point fund. This is the first step toward accomplishing that.”
Gates will open at 3 p.m. Sunday. Hot laps hit the track at 6:30 p.m., with racing at 7:15 p.m.
The Potomac Speedway U-Cars will complete the three-division program.
Admission is $25. Children 5 and under are FREE. Full pit access is $40, with no license required.
The event will be streamed live on Dirt Track Digest TV, on the web at www.dirttrackdigest.tv.
