“Mighty” Modifieds Return For 7 Shows
Special Dirt Modified Show Planned
Lancaster, New York – Dunn Tire Raceway Park has scheduled an action packed season for the 53rd season of stock car racing at the famed facility. The 2011 season will feature 13 regular season shows and the annual season finale US Open.
The “Western New York Home of the Asphalt Modified” will feature the ground pounding Modifieds for five regular shows over the course of the season. Four of the Modified races will be 50 laps in length and teams will draw for position each week. The annual Tommy Druar & Tony Jankowiak Memorial race will once again be 100 laps, continuing last season’s successful expansion of the event. The prestigious Race of Champions Modified Tour visits the speedway twice – June 11th and the US Open, which is scheduled on September 17th and 18th.
Regular shows will feature the 4 Cylinders, Street Stocks, and Sportsman. The TQ Midgets will also be slated for a number of shows. Following a successful showcase at the 2009 US Open and a handful of shows during 2010, the Legends will be returning for a limited number of special shows as well. The open wheel Sportsman will compete in a season highlight 100 lap race on Saturday, June 4th in the Sportsman Summer Slam.
The full fendered Late Models are on the slate three times during the regular season including a 50 late feature on May 14th – Opening Day. The race will be run in memory of John Freundschuh, the owner of Bobcat of Buffalo and longtime race supporter who passed away in January of 2010. The Super Stocks will also be returning with more races in 2011 with one show per month scheduled at DTRP.
Completely new for 2011 will be a foray into the dirt racing world as DTRP will be hosting a Dirt Legal 358 Modified show on Tuesday, June 28th. A number of dirt teams have already committed to the event, which will also feature the 4 Cylinders and Street Stocks. Seeing the dirt cars race on the DTRP asphalt oval will be a show fans won’t want to miss!
Numerous special promotional nights are scheduled throughout the season including the fan favorite Autograph Night. Kids Day has been expanded to a once per month event, with one designated Saturday each month featuring $1 admission for kids 12 and under and special features such as race car kiddie rides, a bounce house, face painters, and more! In addition, the infamous DTRP Big Wheels for kids 13 and under will begin their season opening day and the free weekly “Kids Club” will make its return.
