WOODHULL, N.Y. – official series release —
The richest race in the 51-year history of Woodhull Raceway is fast approaching.
On Tuesday, Aug.11, the Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Hi-Tek Modifieds invade the high-banked, paperclip-shaped oval for the inaugural running of the Hustlin’ the High Banks’51-lap event, race No. 6 of the STSS Bob Hilbert Sportswear North Region.
Modifieds, big- and small-blocks, race for a $5,100-plus winner’s share, with $1,000 reserved for 10th-place and $400 just to take the green flag. This is by far the most lucrative payout in the five-decade existence of auto racing at Woodhull, now owned and operated by businessman Ted White.
The ‘Hustlin’ the High Banks’ special is sponsored by Addison NAPA Auto Parts, Two Rivers Timber, Maple City Dodge and Outman Equipment.
“We’ve been looking to do something different and have a midweek show,” Woodhull’s White commented. “We watched the success of the Short Track Super Series last year and knew we wanted to be a part of it. There is so much excitement right now with the series and our event. It’s definitely going to be a night to remember at Woodhull.”
The last midweek Modified event contested at Woodhull was June 5, 2012, more than three years ago.
Stewart Friesen of Sprakers, N.Y., off the strength of a $9,000-plus triumph at I-88 Speedway in Afton, N.Y., July 22, leads the STSS North Region standings into Woodhull. Friesen has never turned a competitive lap at the Woodhull facility.
