Ransomville Reveals Summer Nationals Date


RANSOMVILLE, N.Y. – The annual visit to Ransomville Speedway by the Super DIRTcar Series big-block modifieds will have a new date next season.

The $7,500-to-win, 36th annual Summer Nationals will take place on Tuesday, July 7, which is a month earlier than the previously August race date.

“We had to shuffle our schedule around for 2020 to accommodate some special events,” said Jenn Martin, Ransomville Speedway general manager. “The Super DIRTcar Series and World Racing Group have been great partners in working with us to make it all fit.”

In 2019, the Summer Nationals was rained out for the first time in the event’s 35 year history. The busy late summer schedule for the Super DIRTcar Series made finding a suitable rain date a challenge.

“Last season we were so disappointed when we were unable to reschedule the Summer Nationals,” said Martin. “This new earlier date gives us some more options that we really hope we won’t have to use.”

The Summer Nationals will feature a doubleheader of DIRTcar series events as there will also be a $1,000-to-win DIRTcar Sportsman Series Western Region event. The top five finishers in Western Region points in 2020 will share in a $1,500 points fund.

NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series driver Stewart Friesen is the most recent winner of the Summer Nationals when he earned his sixth victory in the event back in 2018.
