TULSA, Okla. (February 19, 2018) – The sixth season of racing is on the horizon for the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region with the series’ first female Competition Director taking charge for a lineup of 26 confirmed dates across Montana, South Dakota, and Wyoming with three awaiting confirmation.
Cary Berry-Smith, who has been involved in Motorsports for nearly a decade in aspects ranging from driver, publicist, and promoter has taken on the role of Competition Director. This marks the first time a woman has taken charge full-time of an ASCS sanctioned series.
“The simple answer is that I’m really excited to get this opportunity,” commented Berry-Smith, who is the Supervisor of Student Media at the University of Wyoming when she’s not at the races. “I really think dirt track racing in this region has a lot of potential; especially Sprint Cars. Their dynamics just make them so exciting, and that’s something that we can really use to expand to a wider variety of fan.”
On being the first woman to head an ASCS sanctioned series, Cary was very clear that she looks at it all very simple; if you give respect, you’ll get respect, “The fact that I’m a woman doesn’t change the fact that we are there to put on a quality show. I’m not going to treat them any different, and I don’t expect to be treated differently. They know what’s expected and they know the rules.”
Kicking off the first of 18 races in the state of Montana on May 11 and 12 at Billings Motorsports Park, the three-eighths-mile oval will see a half-dozen races including the season-ending weekend on September 14 and 15. Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Mont. follows with their first of seven events on May 18 and 19. The third Montana oval and the only one with a Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by Sawblade.com event in 2018, Gallatin Speedway goes green on June 8 with four more dates in addition too.
Filling in the remaining eight races include six Wyoming events with four at Sweetwater Speedway in Rock Springs, Wy. along with two dates at Gillette Thunder Speedway in Gillette, Wy. With two nights in South Dakota, the big half-mile Black Hills Speedway will see action on June 1 and July 27.
