The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco completed a ground-breaking 2019 season with events completed in four states: Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The series kicked off in March and spanned through the month of November.
The STSS Modified program was again divided into North and South Regions. The North Region attracted 199 individual competitors, with the South Region bringing in 92 unique drivers.
Again, the series led the way for Northeast dirt Modified participation with an average car count per race of 41.7.
Through a partnership with Sunoco Race Fuels and Insinger Performance, 2019 ‘Grand Champion’ Matt Sheppard receives $58,500 for winning the STSS North and South Regions plus the accompanying American Racer Cup ‘home-track’ program. This is the most lucrative championship in all of Modified racing.
A secondary Crate 602 Sportsman series was added as a support division to the Short Track Super Series Modifieds. The North Region boasted 132 drivers with 100 competitors in the South Region.
For the 2020 season, the Short Track Super Series kicks off its season in February with the ‘Sunshine Swing’ mini-series at All-Tech Raceway in Lake City, Fla.
