HORSEHEADS, N.Y. — Gary Tomkins is one driver that fans attending NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week, and watching from afar, should keep their eyes upon next weekend at Oswego Speedway.

If you’re a betting person that likes to place bets on the ‘hot hand’, Tomkins is your guy. He’s is riding momentum from a recent victory at Weedsport Speedway with the Super DIRTcar Series, as well as a $10,000 win this past Sunday at Rolling Wheels in Elbridge, N.Y.

The fact that this year’s running of Super DIRT Week is at a track that none of the competitors have ever raced on as a dirt track provides a huge opportunity for many drivers to hit big against the powerhouse teams on the series. The wide open field could see one driver hit the hot setup and ride that setup to a $50,000 victory in the 300-lapper coming up next Sunday at the ‘Steel Palace.’

Tomkins joined Steven Ovens and Tom Baker on Turn 5 Live this past Tuesday to talk about his team’s chances at Super DIRT Week, as well as just how big the win this past Sunday was as he prepares for next week’s crown jewel event in Oswego.
