WELCOME

Dear Race Fan and Competitor,

The wait is over. Racing’s Biggest Party is back! We couldn’t be more excited to welcome you to the 49th NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week.

With the help of Oswego Speedway’s staff, the iconic Steel Palace will once again be converted into the Clay Palace to bring you one of the greatest motorsport events in the world.

Our weeklong OktoberFAST spectacle served as a worthy placeholder for Super DIRT Week last year in light of the situation with the pandemic, but we know nothing can compare to Super DIRT Week. Special thanks go out to our fans, drivers, team owners, media and friends for making OktoberFAST a success in 2020 while we planned for Super DIRT Week’s grand return this year.

We also have to thank Governor Andrew Cuomo and the State of New York for their continued support of Super DIRT Week and our commitment to providing the best racing possible in New York.

We are extremely thrilled to welcome NAPA Auto Parts back as the title sponsor of Super DIRT Week, as well. Their commitment to this event and motorsports throughout North America is unrivaled. They join all of our partners who contribute to making Super DIRT Week a memorable experience for all. It’s truly one of the greatest partnerships in motorsports.

Champions. Veterans. Rookies. Legends. They’ll all be joining us again to write their name in the elusive Super DIRT Week history books.

Enclosed here, you’ll find the ultimate Fan and Competitor’s Guide to what has become the ultimate week of DIRTcar racing. It contains everything you’ll need to know about what is going on during this exciting week of racing.

A pre-party event with practice and a concert will set the stage for the week on Tuesday, Oct. 5, before we officially kick off the 49th Super DIRT Week on Wednesday, Oct. 6. A new Billy Whittaker Cars 200 champion will be crowned on Sunday, Oct. 10. Mat Williamson, the 2019 winner and Super DIRTcar Series champion, will hold nothing back to claim victory again, but a plethora of elite drivers will be on the hunt to grace Victory Lane at the conclusion of the most grueling race on the Super DIRTcar Series schedule.

From all of us at DIRTcar, we are grateful for your continued support and are proud to have you a part of our racing family. We look forward to another great week of racing. Thank you for helping us make Super DIRT Week Racing’s Biggest Party.

Sincerely,

Brian Carter
DIRTcar Racing, CEO
