FULTON, NY – Fulton Speedway will be the setting for one of the crown jewels in Northeast Sportsman racing, the Industrial Tire of CNY Sportsman Shootout 50, on September 30 and October 1, during the 31st Annual Sunoco Fulton Ethanol Facility Outlaw 200 weekend presented by SUNY Canton.
Long-time Fulton Speedway marketing partner Industrial Tire of CNY located at 1015 Hiawatha Blvd. in Syracuse, continues its strong support as title sponsor making the Sportsman Shootout one of the highest paying and prestigious events to win for the division. More than $15, 000 in purse and prize money including heat money, lap money and other special awards will be up for grabs.
The Industrial Tire of CNY Sportsman Shootout Champion also earns a spot in the All-Star Race as part of the World Short Track Championship in Charlotte on October 21.
Drivers will draw to determine their qualifying groups on Friday beginning at 3:30 p.m. Drivers will stay within the same group for timed hot laps and 10-lap heat races on Friday evening. Following the heats, 12-lap consolations will be held. Saturday, 15-lap B-Mains will complete the 30-car field for the 50-lap all-green flag feature event with all non-qualifying drivers receiving $60.
This is race #11 of the DIRTcar Sportsman Championship series and the first of five “championship” point events in a two-week period for Sportsman competitors.
All DIRTcar rules apply and drivers must be DIRTcar members.
Recently crowned Fulton Speedway point Champion, Ron Davis III, looks to continue his torrid late season run that has seen him tally three DIRTcar Sportsman series wins since Labor Day.
Ontario’s Shane Pecore holds the series point lead to date on the strength of two series wins over Martin Pelletier. A strong contingent of competitors for New York State, Ontario and Quebec is expected.
