New Street Stock "Six Pack Series" to Debut in 2020

Four tracks working together toward common rules


For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                                  SPS-012820-1


WEST HAVEN, Vt. – The spotlight will shine on local stock car racing's "little guy" teams in 2020.  The all-new "Six Pack Series" has been created for intermediate-level, V8-powered stock cars, with six races at four distinctly different tracks in Vermont and New York's Capital District.

Significant efforts have been made by each of the four speedways to work toward a more uniform set of rules to oversee similar divisions.  The tracks and classes involved are the Super Stocks at Devil's Bowl Speedway in West Haven, Vt., the Street Stocks at Albany-Saratoga Speedway in Malta, N.Y., the Street Stocks at Glen Ridge Motorsports Park in Fultonville, N.Y., and the Pure Stocks at Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, N.Y.  Drivers must declare which track's rulebook they will race under for the Six Pack Series.

The Six Pack cracks open on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 10, at the high-banked, quarter-mile Glen Ridge bullring.  The semi-banked, half-mile Devil's Bowl facility will host the second round on Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 24, followed by events at the banked 4/10-mile Albany-Saratoga on Friday, June 12, and the fast, 5/8-mile Lebanon Valley high-banks on Saturday, June 27.

Devil's Bowl will host its second event during the Interstate All Battery Center Vermont 200 Weekend over the Labor Day holiday on Saturday, September 5, and the inaugural Six Pack Series champion will be crowned at Albany-Saratoga during the Malta Massive Weekend on Friday, September 25.

The intermediate, hobby-level class is well-known for its side-by-side action and even for its wild crashes.  Primarily based on the 1980s-era Chevrolet Monte Carlo, the division harkens back to a bygone period of racing that longtime fans fondly remember and that newer fans quickly fall in love with.

"The Six Pack Series is a really exciting concept and the new rules should make for some great racing at all the tracks," said Devil's Bowl champion Scott FitzGerald. "It's great that the tracks are all working together, and the thought of being able to race on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights with the same car reminds me of the way things were 30 years ago. My team is really looking forward to the challenge."

Further announcements about the Six Pack Series will be forthcoming.  For more information, visit www.DevilsBowlSpeedwayVT.com or call (802) 265-3112.

DIRTcar Pro Stock Series Ramped Up for 2020

Posted: 28 Jan 2020 03:50 PM PST

The Full-Fendered Frenzy of DIRTcar Pro Stock Series Racing Returns with an Eleven-Race Schedule

CONCORD, NC – January 28, 2020 – DIRTcar Northeast's only full-fendered racing division returns in 2020, with an exciting array of DIRTcar Pro Stock Series action. A total of 11 Feature races and 10 premier dirt race tracks make up the Series schedule in 2020 across the Northeast and Canada. 

2019 champion C.D. Beauchamp indicated that he would return to the Series in 2020 to defend his title. At the annual DIRTcar Awards banquet, C.D. took home over $2,000 for his Pro Stock title.

That title defense begins at the multi-grooved Autodrome Granby on Friday, June 19. The last time the DIRTcar Pro Stock Series stopped into the Quebec autodrome, in 2018, Bruno Cyr took the checkered flag. 

Next up is the high-banked bullring of Cornwall Motor Speedway. 2019 DIRTcar Pro Stock Series champion C.D. Beauchamp started his 2019 season with a win at Cornwall. Will he make it a repeat or will the stars from both sides of the border take home the checkered flag?

It's a special back to back weekend for the Series, with Lebanon Valley Speedway and Glen Ridge Motorsports Park Saturday and Sunday, July 25 and 26.  This will be a unique test indeed, as Lebanon is arguably the biggest track on the tour while Glen Ridge is the smallest.  

With a talented group of weekly teams, Lebanon Valley boasts some of the biggest Pro Stock car counts in the DIRTcar circuit.  It will be a battle when Series travelers from all over the Northeast and Canada come to town.

The DIRTcar Pro Stock Series will make its second-ever attempt to race at Glen Ridge Motorsports Park in Fultonville, NY. The Series was scheduled there once before but was forced to cancel due to rain. Drivers are excited to finally take on this track this season on Sunday, July 26. 

Along with sanctioning DIRTcar Pro Stocks in the Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Championship, Can-Am Speedway plays host to a Series race on Friday, September 11. The Series hopes to complete its first race at The Nasty Track since Louie Jackson took the checkered flag in 2008. 

The following day, Saturday, September 12, the Series hauls over to Weedsport Speedway to take part in the first Cavalcade Cup Weekend along with the Super DIRTcar Series and more. Last season Josh Coonradt won a thriller on this Central New York oval. 

The Pro Stocks get back to it on Saturday, September 19 at Mohawk Int'l Raceway in Akwesasne, NY. Sid Harmer Jr. shocked the field in 2019, by picking up the Series win there. A week later, Albany-Saratoga Speedway and their talented group of weekly racers will clash on the Malta, NY oval. The Super DIRTcar Series will also be on hand with a $10,000-to-win showdown NAPA Super DIRT Week Qualifier. 

Speaking of the greatest week in racing, the DIRTcar Pro Stocks will contest the Oswego Speedway for 50 laps on Sunday, October 11. The Pro Stocks have always put on great shows during NAPA Super DIRT Week, but since moving to Oswego Speedway, the racing has reached another an even higher level. It's a can't-miss race on the schedule. 

The season wraps up at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, Thursday through Saturday, October 29-31, as a part of the DRIVEN World Short Track Championship. Competitors will face off on the biggest stage in dirt racing in two Features plus Heat Races and Time Trials.
