SUSSEX, NJ — Let’s face it, not every fan likes the time trial format used to set the fields for the Super DIRTcar Modified Series qualifying races. Some of them even arrive late at the track just to avoid watching time trials. But what if you had the chance to win $1,000? Would you come to the track early enough to enter the unique “Pick-the-Quick” Fan Contest and perhaps go home later that evening $1,000 richer?
Spectator gates for The Big Show 10 Super DIRTcar Modified Series race meet at Albany-Saratoga Speedway (Malta, New York) on Tuesday, June 26, will open at 4:00 pm. Fans are encouraged to come out early and enjoy the attractions. Besides sampling all the refreshments available, several souvenir trailers offering a wide variety of racing-oriented items will be on site. Between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm, fans can also take part in the “Pick-the-Quick” contest by selecting the five fastest drivers from the group time trials. The choices do not have to be in order. There’s a $1,000 jackpot to be divided among any fans who name all five fastest drivers on their contest entry. Scoring four out of five fast timers earns a pit pass upgrade (Minors winning a pit pass upgrade must be accompanied by an adult.) Deadline for entries will be 6:00 pm.
