  • La Super DIRTcar Series est une série de courses automobiles sur terre battue pour voitures modifiées concourant en Amérique du Nord. Les courses sont principalement disputées dans le nord-est des États-Unis avec quelques dates dans le Mid-Ouest des États-Unis, la Floride et l’est du Canada. La série est sanctionnée par World Racing Group (DIRT Motorsports Inc.). Les voitures « modifiées » de la Super DIRTcar Series, surnommés "Big Block Modified", sont motorisées par des gros blocs de 467 pouces cubes développant de 650 à 800 chevaux. L’événement phare de la série est la "Super DIRT Week" de la New York State Fairgrounds à Syracuse dans l’état de New York qui paie 50 000$ au champion. Parmi les autres courses importantes de la série, on note la course « Mr. Dirt Track USA » de la piste Lebanon Valley Speedway, une épreuve de 100 tours qui rapporte 17 500$ à son vainqueur et l’ « Eastern States 200 », épreuve de 200 tours à la piste Orange County Fair Speedway qui en rapporte 20 000$ au vainqueur. Le champion de la série est couronné chaque année lors du « DIRTcar World Finals » à Dirt Track at Charlotte à Concord en Caroline du Nord. Brett Hearn est le grand recordman de la série avec, notamment, huit championnats (1990, 1993, 1996, 1997 [ex-aequo avec Danny Johnson], 2001, 2007, 2009 et 2013), 106 victoires et 27 saisons avec au moins une victoire, dont 17 consécutives. Mario Clair est le meilleur pilote de tous les temps!
  • The Super DIRTcar Series is a modified racing touring series in the United States. It races primarily in the Northeastern United States with a few dates in the Midwestern United States, Florida, and Canada. Many long-time race enthusiasts felt that an end to an era had come when Langhorne (Pa.) Speedway closed for the final time after the 1971 Race of Champions. Just a half-dozen years earlier another era had quietly passed by when the Langhorne one-mile oval was paved. Since its beginning in 1951 the Race Of Champions had evolved into the biggest year-end extravaganza for Modified teams and their loyal supporters. When the asphalt arrived in 1965 it seemed to once and for all end the great years of major league dirt track racing in the Northeast. Enter Glenn Donnelly. The fledgling track owner announced the first Schaefer 100 (today’s VP Small Engine Fuels 200) at the New York State Fairgrounds in 1972 and a brand new era in dirt racing was begun. To promote the inaugural 'World Series of Dirt Track Racing' event at the historic Syracuse Mile he devised a series of qualifying races to guarantee starting berths for the autumn event. Today the same tour is recognized in motorsports arenas everywhere as the Super DIRTcar Series, yet it now runs from spring to fall and determines the best Big-Block Modified team in the Northeast.Thirteen events comprised the 1972 & '73 Syracuse qualifying trails but Super Series III in 1974 was the first to declare a true champion and offer a season-ending point fund. Will Cagle out-gained two-time Schaefer champion Buzzie Reutimann to capture the inaugural title that rewarded him with a $4,500 payoff. As the years rolled on, company money was secured to keep the qualifying trail alive and help it generate an identity of its own. While a Syracuse trophy still remained the top prize in DIRTcar Racing, the prestige of capturing the Super DIRTcar Series became just as evident to competing teams. Today, lucrative purses and ‘live’ webcast schedule have made it one of the most recognized series of its kind in the country. 1st Super DIRTcar 358 Modified Series Champion...One of the first 358 Modified SDS champions was Tony Corcoran. Tony drove his number 25 to an impressive championship with 4 top 5 finishes out of 11 races including a 358 SDS win at Brockville Ontario Speedway. Corcoran also put together 13 consecutive wins at Can-Am Motorsports Park in 1983. Today Tony Corcoran owns a successful parts business which is the official parts supplier at his home track, Brockville. Let There Be Sportsman...Back on September 8, 1990 Rick Mill was victorious in one of the first Super DIRTcar Sportsman Series races at the Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, NY. He would go on to win 3 of the 5 races in the Mr. DIRTcar Sportsman Series that season, BUT did NOT claim the title. That honor went to Mike Button who claimed a win at Rolling Wheels Raceway on September 22, 1990 to go with a pair of top 5 finishes. It gave him an 8 point win over Chris Moore for the championship. Pro Stock Series Takes Form...Steve Pesarek became the first Super DIRTcar Pro Stock Series champion after a 2nd place finish at Paradise Speedway. During the '95 season Pesarek had 7 top 5 finishes in 11 SDS Pro Stock races including a win at his home stomping grounds of Canandaigua Motorsports Park. He beat out Fonda Speedway's own Phlan Hart for the championship and can still be found racing. In 2013 he became the oldest winner in the history of the Land Of Legends.
