BRASSTOWN, N.C. – The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series fueled by Sunoco Modifieds are getting back on the track.

In an announcement made Tuesday night, STSS organizer Brett Deyo said the series will visit Ray Cook’s Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, N.C., for a two-night swing on Thursday, May 21 and Friday, May 22.

The race is an invitational, non-points event, with a maximum of 30 teams participating.

All attendees must follow CDC guidelines and social distancing policies. A limit on crew members per team will be released next week. All policies must be strictly adhered to for the safety of all in attendance.

Race fans will not be permitted at these events. The racing program will be broadcast exclusively through Dirt Track Digest TV, an affiliate of the SPEED SPORT Network, with one- and two-night packages.

Two nights of racing are planned: a 35-lap, $3,000-to-win main event on Friday and a 40-lap, $5,000-to-win program on Saturday. Complete purse information will be available in the coming days. A field of 24 cars will start each night.

Should a sponsor be found, that number could increase, or B-Mains could be included.

The invited teams are as follows: the top-15 current STSS Modified Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central drivers following the opener at Georgetown (Del.) Speedway on March 7 and the top 15 in the final Halmar International North Region STSS Modified standings from 2019.

Teams in these two groups will have the first right of refusal prior to Saturday, May 9.

Any other teams wishing to compete will be entered into a drawing for remaining available spots on Sunday, May 10. Racers looking to be part of the drawing should email [email protected] to confirm.

Sponsorship opportunities of all types are available: presenting sponsorships, associate sponsorships, special awards and bonuses, commercials on the Dirt Track Digest TV broadcast, etc. Contact [email protected] to get involved.

Venmo and PayPal information will be released in the coming days for fans wishing to boost the Friday payout.

A rain date of May 23 is in place.
