BATAVIA, Ohio (September 4, 2019) – Hall-of-Fame promoter, Carl Short recently announced that the 39th edition of the Dirt Track World Championship, set for October 18th-19th at Portsmouth Raceway Park will return to a Time Trial format for Super Late Models.

Since 2015, a double-heat race format, with a passing-points system, has transferred drivers into the main event. This year, Friday night will include Time Trials and a single set of 15-lap heat races with a six car invert. Competitors will earn points based on Time Trials and Heat Race finishing results. The total points accumulated by a specific driver will be added together to create Saturday’s B-Main and A-Main lineups.

Saturday’s on-track action for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will include B-Mains, followed by a non-qualifier race, where the winner has the choice of keeping their $3,000 winnings, or forfeiting their earnings to start tail of the main event. The 100-lap Dirt Track World Championship finale will cap off the weekend.

Advanced tickets to this marquee event are on sale now. To purchase tickets or for more information, or call (740) 858-4972.®
