Can-Am Speedway to Sanction DIRTcar Pro Stocks in 2020.

The full-fendered frenzy of Sanctioned DIRTcar Pro Stock racing returns to weekly competition at The Nasty Track, Can-Am Speedway

Lafargeville, NY – December 4, 2019 – DIRTcar Northeast’s only full-fendered racing division, the DIRTcar Pro Stocks, will now be sanctioned at the newly configured 4/10ths Can-Am Speedway in 2020. Participating racers will be a part of the lucrative Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Championship.

After another successful Pro Stock meeting where nearly 30 teams were represented, DIRTcar Northeast and Series Director Dean Reynolds along with a highly experienced tech team have refined an already unified and credible DIRTcar Pro Stock rulebook. Can-Am Speedway teams can look forward to racing under a fair set of rules along with the opportunity to take their DIRTcar-legal Pro Stock to Series races like the Wilkins RV Pro Stock 50 at NAPA Super DIRT Week.

Not only will an exciting group of competitors converge to Lafargeville weekly, but the DIRTcar Pro Stock Series is scheduled to make a stop on Friday night, September 11.  The winner of the feature event will receive a minimum of $1,000 first place prize.

“Tyler Bartlett was looking to sanction his Pro-Street division for a while now but it was a combination of getting some rules tweaked and also the right time to introduce the sanction,” said Dean Reynolds, “After our meeting in November some rules were moved into what he already had in place to make the transition easier.  I believe the teams will welcome the benefits of the sanction with the added insurance, the running for Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly and now also earning hometrack bonus points to try to be DIRTcar Pro Stock Champion.”

“We believe the timing is right to now sanction the class and let’s hope it gives it a boost here weekly at Can-Am,” said Tyler Bartlett, “We love the group of drivers and they are so competitive with each other.  But, it’s no secret that we want numbers to climb some. In reaching out there were some noise that some teams would come to Can-Am that now the class is sanctioned. We hope so, I just love to see the class grow.”

Can-Am Speedway draws in lineage to the famous Watertown Speedway. Built in 1975, The Nasty Track has hosted some of the best dirt track racing the country has to offer including the Super DIRTcar Series, 358 Modified Series, Sportsman Series, and of course Pro Stocks. The track has changed hands a few times over the years but with the Bartlett family now behind the wheel, Can-Am Speedway’s future looks bright.
