MALTA, N.Y. – official release — For the highly anticipated conclusion of Brett Hearn’s ‘The Big Show 6′ presented by Recovery Sports Grill, Ferris Industries, and VP Race Fuels, Albany-Saratoga Speedway will feature not just one, but two big-block modified races on July 30.
“We considered a number of options to round out the show that night,” said Super DIRTcar Big Block Modified driver and ‘The Big Show’ event promoter Brett Hearn. “We didn’t want to bring fans all the way out just to see one feature race, and we didn’t want to bring all the series teams back a second time for a single paycheck, so we added a second Big Block Modified show.”
The original running of Brett Hearn’s ‘The Big Show 6,’ scheduled for Tuesday, July 8, was nearing completion when inclement weather moved into the speedway with the last feature of the night on the track. Officials called the Big Block Modifieds of the Super DIRTcar Series off the track with 11 laps of the 100-lap race complete.
Racing Wednesday, July 30, will kick off with the conclusion of this $10,000-to-win feature from lap 11, with Justin Haers aiming to keep his lead over Billy Decker and Danny Johnson. After the Super DIRTcar Series victor is crowned, the Big Block Modifieds will return to the track for a 35-lap show.
“This will be an all-star 35-lapper,” said Hearn. “It’s open to anyone who wants to participate. It’s going to be a great opportunity for Malta’s regular Friday night racers to be part of the event, and a great potential bonus for the series guys making the haul.”
The 35-lap, $2,000-to-win Big Block Modified show will run according to standard Albany-Saratoga Speedway rules. Drivers who participate will be eligible for home track show-up points at Albany-Saratoga.
