Written by Chris Moore

BRIDGEPORT, NJ – Update the calendars.

The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco will try for a third time to invade the high banks of New Jersey’s Bridgeport Motorsports Park on Sunday, Sept. 24.

The Doug Hoffman Memorial ’60 Over Special’ has fallen by the wayside twice due to inclement weather.

Now the Rent Equip/Party Central South Region for the STSS big-block/small-block Modifieds will give it a third attempt for a 60-lap, $6,060-to-win feature event at the revamped four-tenths-mile oval.

The race will serve as Round No. 5 of the South Region $15,000 championship chase, headed by Savannah, N.Y.’s Matt Sheppard.

Sheppard maintains a 23-point advantage over Frenchtown, N.J.’s Billy Pauch Jr. heading into the South Jersey oval following a podium finish in the ‘Blast at the Beach’ at Georgetown (Del.) Speedway.

King Ferry, N.Y.’s Mike Mahaney rounds out the top three, 84 points behind Sheppard at the top of the South Region standings.

The Belmont’s Garage South Region for the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman joins the program as well for Round No. 5 of their South Region title fight.

Upper Makefield, Pa.’s Joe Toth leads the way by 57 markers over Spencertown, N.Y.’s Dylan Madsen, who won the ‘Blast at the Beach’ at Georgetown.
