‘Racing’s Biggest Party’ is set for its biggest year yet as the celebration continues each month, including a 50th Super DIRT Week trophy tour

Momentum for one of the most historic weeks in dirt Modified history is already building as NAPA Super DIRT Week celebrates its 50th anniversary in October at Oswego Speedway. The special week comes with a refined schedule loaded with new and exciting elements for fans and drivers.

From Sunday to Sunday, Oct. 2-9, a plethora of activities for fans have been planned throughout the City of Oswego, amongst the races for the Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds, DIRTcar 358 Modifieds, DIRTcar Sportsman and DIRTcar Pro Stock.

One of the biggest updates for the 50th-anniversary event is adjusting the times and days for the four division’s main events. The Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds and DIRTcar Sportsman will race on Sunday, with the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 starting at 5pm (ET). The DIRTcar 358 Modifieds and the DIRTcar Pro Stocks will run on Saturday under the lights, with the Salute to the Troops 150 starting at 6pm. The divisions have also been grouped together during the week for their practice, time trials and Qualifying Heat Races.

While the first pages of the Super DIRT Week history book were written in 1972 at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse with Big Block Modifieds, Racing’s Biggest Party is set to be the biggest ever in 2022 at Oswego Speedway – including a charity golf tournament, parties led by a DJ every night from Wednesday to Saturday at the Island Stage just outside the pits plus live entertainment on Saturday, huge fireworks on Friday, and the fan-favorite autograph session with the Top 30 qualifiers on Sunday.

In addition, past champions will also be honored during the event, with a special race and autograph session on Thursday, Oct. 6, following Qualifying for DIRTcar 358 Modifieds and Pro Stocks. More details on this event will be revealed as the date draws closer.

Also, throughout the season, a new custom 50th NAPA Super DIRT Week Billy Whittaker Cars 200 trophy will tour the State of New York with the 50th anniversary Ford Mustang Pace Car for fans to see.

The celebration for the 50th NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week is already well underway. Every Wednesday leading up to the event week in October, a driver is revealed from the fan-voted list of the Top 50 Greatest Super DIRT Week Drivers. So far, 17 drivers have already been made public at dirtcar.com/new-sdw.
