OSWEGO, NY — Oct. 4, 2018 — Fans from at least eighteen states and three different countries have gathered at Oswego Speedway this week for NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week XLVII. While they've come to hear the rumble of 800-plus horsepower power-plants breaking into the 5/8-mile Clay Palace, the appeal of NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week transcends the racing.

Dave Marcuccilli entered Wednesday nights' 30-lap Mr. DiRTcar Sportsman Tour event facing a serious challenge, but shortly after the bell tolled midnight, the veteran driver was celebrating on Victory Hill after edging out Kevin Root and Andrew Smith.

Marcuccilli said, "I really needed to make up points coming into tonight. It hurt me this year as I didn't follow the region." And with point leader Brad Rouse running the final 10 laps with a left front flat and finishing ninth Marcuccilli hoped it was enough to help.
