Brett Deyo To Promote Short Track SuperNationals
At Five Mile Point
And the timing is right for the revival of the Short Track SuperNationals.
The event, promoted successfully by Brett Deyo at N.Y.'s Afton Speedway in 2006, will return after a two-year absence this October with a new location: Five Mile Point Speedway in
On Sat., Oct. 10, Deyo will present the second edition of the Short Track SuperNationals with a 50-lap unsanctioned Modified event as the headliner.
"The last time this event was run, it was a success," Deyo, 26, said. "I've had so many requests from drivers, fans and media members to bring the event back. Looking over track schedules for this year, I thought there was no better time."
Deyo came to an agreement with Five Mile Point Speedway's Andrew Harpell to host the SuperNationals at the 59-year-old facility.
"The goal of this event is to provide a working-man's option for Columbus Day Weekend," Deyo said.
"This show will be affordable for race fans and attractive to competitors."
A purse of over $15,000 has
been posted for the big-block/small-block Modifieds - $3,500 to win, $1,000 for
fifth, $500 for 10th and $200 to take the green flag.
"I will be working with sponsors to provide contingency awards and other bonuses on top of our posted payout," Deyo said.
Sail panels will be permitted. Competitors have the option of gasoline or methanol. Any 13- by 92-inch Modified tire will be legal. 358-Modifieds will be granted a weight break. A complete set of rules will be announced well in advance of the event.
Drivers will draw for heat-race starting positions, with a top-12 redraw for the feature. In the interest of fan entertainment, there will be no time trials.
Deyo believes Five Mile Point is an ideal location for the Short Track SuperNationals.
"The location works well to draw from the Middletown (N.Y.) area, Western New York, Central New York, the Capital District, the Southern Tier and the
"The size of the track (a large quarter-mile) should allow the big- and small-block cars to run evenly. Fans and racers will definitely be impressed with the improvements put in place at the Point over the past few years."
The 2006 edition of the Short Track SuperNationals drew a field of 54 Modifieds. Mike Ricci of
The Race of Champions Dart Pure Stock Tour, Four Cylinder Stocks and an open event for Vintage Modifieds will complete the one-day event.
A "split program" will be run, with support-division qualifying held earlier in the afternoon, prior to the Modifieds hitting the track in the evening.
Admission prices, start times, entry information and other details will be released in the near future.
"All the specifics are in the works," Deyo said.
