OSWEGO, NY (Oct. 3, 2023) – The City of Oswego has been transformed into the dirt Modified capital of the world this week to celebrate Racing’s Biggest Party – Super DIRT Week 51.
Nearly 300 cars are already entered among the Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds, DIRTcar 358 Modifieds, DIRTcar Sportsman and DIRTcar Pro Stocks – all vying for a big check from the more than $400,000 purse.
About 30,000 fans will experience the 51st edition of the biggest dirt racing event in the northeast, Oct. 2-8, which features new experiences off the track and new variables for drivers on track.
While not on the dirt, racing starts Tuesday night at Oswego Speedway with the inaugural Quarter Midget & Microd Mania, featuring drivers 5 to 18 years old racing in the track infield. It’s free to all spectators and free to watch on DIRTVision.
Fans will then get to see their favorite dirt racing machines up close during the City of Oswego Parade presented by Harborfest on Wednesday at noon. Practice for all divisions will follow shortly after at 2pm (fans can watch from the front stretch for free).
There will be a DJ Party every night, Wednesday through Saturday, and a live concert Saturday night at 10pm.
Thursday and Friday will see Time Trials and Qualifying Heats for the four divisions. Then, the weekend brings the biggest Feature events of the year. Saturday will showcase the DIRTcar Pro Stock 50 (at 4pm) and DIRTcar 358 Modified Salute to the Troops 150 (at 6pm).
It all leads to Sunday’s grand show. First, there will be an autograph session with the Top 30 drivers locked into the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 at noon. Then, the DIRTcar Sportsman Chevrolet Performance 75 will open the racing action at 3pm. Opening Ceremonies for the ‘200’ are scheduled to start at 4:15pm before the $51,000-to-win, 200-lap, Billy Whittaker Cars 200 commences at 5pm.
