WEEDSPORT, N.Y. — The Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series invades Canada for the second time of the season, with a Quebec doubleheader Monday, July 21, at Autodrome Granby and Tuesday, July 22, at Autodrome Drummond. For the second time, the DIRTcar Sportsman Modified Series will be joining the Super DIRTcar Series at these premier Quebec tracks.
Modified driver Mario Clair, of Drummondville, Quebec, is looking forward to the return of the Super DIRTcar Series to his home turf.
“We had a good start for Granby and Drummond,” said Clair, who is currently third in DIRTcar 358-Modified track points at Autodrome Drummund. “The car is good, the Bicknell (chassis) and the engine, LaFrance Performance, is good. The car is perfect.”
Three-time Super DIRTcar Series champion Matt Sheppard, of Waterloo, N.Y., is also off to a good start this season, taking the lead in points after consecutive wins at New Egypt Speedway and Cornwall Motor Speedway in June. Billy Decker, of Sidney, N.Y., is second in points after an impressive victory at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park during the Stars & Stripes Summer Super Show Thursday, July 3. In the DIRTcar Sportsman Modified Series, Shane Pecore has taken the point lead over Martin Pelletier by a margin of seven points after the last round at Ransomville Speedway.
“Granby is a very fast track. It’s a long track. It’s good competition,” said Clair of the half-mile track, the site of Monday’s Super DIRTcar Series and DIRTcar Sportsman Modified Series races. “At Drummond, the track is faster and there are two good lines, both on the inside and the outside. It’s a good show for the fans.”
