MALTA, NY – The challenge is on!


Earlier this season at Albany-Saratoga Speedway, Brett Hearn’s ‘Big Show’ drew a strong field of 55 Modifieds to the ‘Great Race Place’ to compete in the 100-lap event under the Super DIRTcar Series banner.


Now, on Tuesday, August 14, the Brett Deyo-promoted Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco makes its stop at Albany-Saratoga when Recovery Sports Grill presents the ‘Stampede at ‘toga’ 50-lap spectacular.


So the question is, which event will bring more Modifieds into the Albany-Saratoga pit area – and the “Brett’s Bigger Show” Challenge was born.


The scheduled payout for the STSS ‘Stampede at ‘toga’ event is $5,000 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green flag – a total pay structure of $25,170 from first to last.


With the sponsorship help of American Racer Tires, the stakes have risen for racers if the car count exceeds the 55 mark.


Should 56 or more STSS Modifieds sign into the pit area, an additional $5,000 will be added to the purse, with $7,500 going to the winner and $500 to take the green, bringing the total pay structure to $30,170!


A reminder this event is open to ALL Modifieds – big- or small-block, American Racer or Hoosier tires. If you’ve got a Modified with a steel-block, you are welcome at this event.


Heats will be lined up by a draw for starting positions to take place at the pre-race drivers’ meeting, with a redraw of top qualifiers for the main.
