Mike Perrotte Set For Final Race as Super DIRTcar Series Director

by Mandee Pauch,

CONCORD, NC — October 25 — Earlier this season Series Director Mike Perrotte announced it will be his final season with the Super DIRTcar Series and DIRTcar Northeast. Next weekend, at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, the World of Outlaws World Finals presented by Can-Am will mark Perrotte’s final event as Super DIRTcar Series Director.

Perrotte, the Plattsburgh, NY native, has been attending races since a young boy. It wasn’t until he was 16 that he jumped behind the wheel of a race car. He dabbled in drag racing for a few years but finally found his calling in dirt modifieds in the early ‘80s.

CONCORD, NC – October 15, 2018 - It all comes down to this. After 26 feature races, only 40 points separate Championship points leader Matt Sheppard from second-place Erick Rudolph.

Rudolph closed the gap at Brockville Ontario Speedway with the Feature win, a Heat Race win, and the Billy Whittaker Cars Fast-Time Award, while Sheppard stayed in the top ten throughout the night to finish sixth.

CONCORD, NC – September 27, 2018 – NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week is an event like no other, culminating with one of the most coveted races in all of dirt motorsports, the Billy Whittaker Cars 200.
