“Dirt Cup has always been an event you’ve heard about and marked on your bucket list,” commented ASCS Director, Matt Ward. “For the series, it’s a huge step forward to include such a marquee event for our drivers. I hope the fans are as happy as we are to have Skagit Speedway on the 2015 schedule.
Steve Beitler commented on the change by saying, “We are excited to partner with the ASCS National Series for our 2015 Dirt Cup. We are committed to providing our fans and racers the best programs that are available and this is a natural fit. A change in the procedure for Dirt Cup was needed and including the ASCS National Series teams along with the teams from the west coast and Canada will produce a spectacular event.”
Preliminary night features will feature a $2,000 to win, $400 to start payout, with Saturday’s A-Feature boasting a $55,000 payout that offers $15,000 to win, and $1,000 to start. Drivers will compete all three nights with points awarded for Heats, Last Chance, B-Features, and A-Features then combined to determine lineups for Saturday night.
The ASCS National Series will also return to the Grays Harbor Raceway for their traditional event on Independence Day weekend Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4 with the Fred Brownfield Classic. “The ASCS National Series has been a favorite event for many years at Grays Harbor Raceway. The fans are very excited to see the tour returning to their home track,” said Beitler
When asked about the series return to Grays Harbor, Matt Ward commented, “Grays Harbor has always been a favorite for drivers and fans alike and to have Fred Brownfield’s name tied to the event once again, means a lot to us. We want to show to represent the character and legacy that Fred left behind.”
