Dirt Racing Series to Kick off 2018 Short Track Schedule
Published On: November 22nd, 2017
(CLEVELAND, OH) The ASRS Dirt Racing Series is kicking off the 2018 season, as the dust will fly beginning January 3rd. For 2018, the 410 Sprints will be paired with the UMP Modifieds on Wednesday evenings. The short eight week season will wrap up February 28th.
Both cars will be action on the same night, with 30 Lap Feature events planned for the Sprints and 40 Lap Feature events scheduled for the Modifieds. Heat races are not planned at the moment, but could be added to the program is participation is high. The season will wrap up at Eldora Speedway on February 28th.
“We are very excited to bring dirt racing to ASRS and our 2017 campaign was successful, we accomplished many of our original goals for this expansion, but I felt we needed to run the 410 Sprints in order to call ourselves serious dirt racers. Those are my favorite dirt cars and pairing them with the always popular UMP Modifieds is about as good as it gets” ASRS President Jim Foose said. “We only had eight weeks to work with for this season, and doing the alternating format we ran last summer would have severely limited our number of races for each car, so this is a compromise for me in terms of the variety in cars but the schedule is loaded with great tracks, in fact we hit every dirt track on iRacing except USA International this season, and have two dates at Eldora, Volusia and Knoxville scheduled”.
The American Sim Racing Series was established in 2002 and has been offering quality online racing ever since. For more information on ASRS or to join in the action, visit www.americansimracing.com
