The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco kicks off a busy stretch to open the 2022 racing season on Feb. 8-12.

The new campaign begins at All-Tech Raceway in Lake City, Fla., where the STSS heads for the second time in three years to lift the lid on the tour in the Sunshine State.

The STSS big-block/small-block Modifieds and STSS Crate 602 Sportsman will take part in four nights of action in the third annual ‘Sunshine Swing’ at Wendell Durrance’s facility.

Two weeks later, the highly anticipated debut of the Halmar International ‘Elite’ Series takes place at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, S.C.

Cherokee plays host to the first of six races for the STSS Modifieds paying a minimum of $25,000-to-win, $1,000 to finish 16th and $500-to-start.

The three-day ‘Rebel 50’ weekend takes place Feb. 24-26, featuring a practice night (Feb. 24), Penske Racing Shocks Qualifying Night (Feb. 25), and the main events to round out the historic weekend of racing Saturday (Feb. 26).

The STSS Crate 602 Sportsman join the Modifieds at “The Place Your Mama Warned You About” for a 30-lap, $2,000-to-win main event.

The STSS returns to one of its home bases two weeks later. Georgetown (Del.) Speedway hosts Round No. 2 of the Halmar International ‘Elite’ Series and the opening Round of the Hurlock Auto & Speed Supply South Region.
