This Week Ahead: Super DIRTcar Series is Set For Mohawk Valley 100

Makes first visit of the season to Fonda Speedway

By Mandee Pauch

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. – Sept. 18, 2016 – The Super DIRTcar Series makes their first trip of the season to Fonda Speedway for the Mohawk Valley 100 this Saturday, Sept. 24th for their 22nd series event of the season.

It was the “Franklin Flyer” Billy Decker who took the lead from Brett Hearn on lap 78 to capture the Mohawk Valley 100 back in 2015. Decker set fast time in qualifying and started fifth in the feature and was able to take home the victory. “The guys made great adjustments on the car. I’d go where they weren’t in traffic. I love to race here and I want to thank all the Fonda fans for their support.”

The top five finishers in the 2015 Mohawk Valley 100 respectively were Decker, Stewart Friesen, Larry Wight, Gary Tomkins and Tim Fuller.

Breaking Records

Super Matt Sheppard is on the verge of setting a new record with the Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds. Billy Decker currently holds the record for the most wins in one season with 10 wins back in 2008. Sheppard clinched his tenth victory of the season this past Friday night at Brewerton Speedway, tying himself with Decker. Sheppard only has to win one more race before the end of the season to break the record.
