Written by Chris Moore

MILLSBORO, DE – Nine races. Eight winners.

Nine races into the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco 2021 season, eight different drivers have grabbed the Sunoco checkered flag.

The nine events have been spread across both the North and South Regions and the ‘Sunshine Swing’ at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla.

Boyertown, Pa.’s Mike Gular joined New York State drivers Erick Rudolph and Stewart Friesen as the season-opening victors at the ‘Sunshine Swing’ in late January.

The STSS trekked back North to kick off the Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central in early March. Savannah, N.Y.’s Matt Sheppard drove from his 19th starting position to win the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial at Georgetown (Del.) Speedway.

The following weekend the South Region continued in Central Pennsylvania at Selinsgrove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway.

Sheffield, Mass., driver Andy Bachetti won the ‘Icebreaker 40’ at Selinsgrove to kick off the weekend. Canadian Mat Williamson won his second consecutive STSS race at Port Royal Speedway the following afternoon.

At the ‘Diamond State 50’ at Delaware International Speedway (Delmar, Del.), Sprakers, N.Y.’s Stewart Friesen became the first driver to win multiple STSS races in 2021.

The Hurlock Auto & Speed North Region kicked off on May 11 at Accord (N.Y.) Speedway for the ‘Battle of the Bullring 8’ event. Middletown, N.Y.’s Anthony Perrego picked up his seventh career STSS triumph, an event in honor of his late father Tom Perrego.

Most recently, Waterloo, N.Y.’s Steve Paine defended his home turf at Outlaw Speedway. The ‘Outlaw Showdown’ win was the first STSS victory for ‘The Hurricane.’

Two events are on the agenda for the Short Track Super Series this week.

On Tuesday (May 25), the STSS Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central resumes for the Modifieds at New Egypt (N.J.) Speedway with the ‘Dirty Jersey 7’ joined by the Belmont’s Garage Crate 602 Sportsman South Region.
