SUSQUEHANNA, Pa. – BD Motorsports Media LLC will experience a homecoming on Sept. 26 and competitors of the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series fueled by Sunoco will benefit.

In an agreement with Penn Can Speedway promoter Gary Folk, the modified portion of the King of the Can event on Saturday, Sept. 26 will operate under the sanction of the Short Track Super Series. The 55-lap event boasts a very lucrative purse structure offering $5,555 to win (plus lap money), $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green flag.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions in New York State, the Halmar International North Region for modifieds has been limited to two events thus far: Big Diamond Speedway in Minersville, Pa., June 16 and Fonda (N.Y.) Speedway on July 5.

The King of the Can will serve as the final North Region event of the season and operate on the 150-point structure.

“With the unfortunate limitations in place for New York State tracks, it has been difficult to complete our North Region schedule this year,” STSS organizer Brett Deyo said. “Having completed two modified events, sanctioning the King of the Can will allow us to declare a champion and offer racers a point fund for supporting the events we have run.

“The Folk family has done an outstanding job reviving Penn Can Speedway this season. We’re looking forward to returning there.”
