Fierce Competition Expected as DIRTcar Racing Tightens 2015 Late Model Summer Nationals to 28 Races in 32 Days Over Five Weeks in June and July

- DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals shifts championship-deciding weekend to Prairie Dirt Classic in July at Fairbury


INDIANAPOLIS - Dec. 11, 2014 - DIRTcar Racing announced its 2015 DIRTcar Late Model Summer Nationals and DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals schedules today at the Performance Racing Industry Tradeshow at the Indiana Convention Center.


The Summer Nationals schedule showcases a renewed focus on the series' core events, tightening the schedule to just over five weeks beginning June 10 and concluding July 11. The series will include 28 races in 32 days winding from the opener at Brownstown, Ind., through Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana and ultimately Ohio. All of the Friday and Saturday events will pay $10,000-to-win except for the opening night at Cedar Lake Speedway, which will pay $5,000-to-win like the weekday events.

The championship, which will be decided July 11 at Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio, is worth $25,000 to the driver who can successfully navigate one of the most challenging and tradition-rich racing tours in the country.


"After extending the past several Summer Nationals tours over six weeks, we listened to our racers and promoters to return to a tight, five-week series this year," said DIRTcar's Sam Driggers. "We believe this will encourage more competitors to race for the championship while keeping the passion for the series at an all-time high for fans and promoters."


In addition, DIRTcar also announced the schedule for the DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals, which runs together with many of the Summer Nationals events. The Summit Modified Nationals kicks off on June 6 at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., before joining the late models at Brownstown Speedway and Kankakee County Speedway.


One major difference this season on the Summit Modified Nationals tour is that unlike the Summer Nationals, it will conclude July 24-25 during the World of Outlaws Late Model Series Prairie Dirt Classic weekend at Fairbury American Legion Speedway, making what was already a huge weekend in central Illinois even bigger.


"We're excited to have the Summit Modified Nationals championship come down to an event at Fairbury," Driggers said. "Having the final races easily accessible for the championship contenders will definitely make it a stronger series."
