MOORESVILLE, N.C. — For the fifth consecutive season, the DIRTcar Nationals from Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., will be showcased on national television as part of the SPEED SPORT presented by WorkAtHendrick.com series on MAVTV.
The first of four new episodes will debut this Thursday, March 26 at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET and will feature the popular DIRTcar Late Models.
A few of the competing drivers include defending World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series champion Brandon Sheppard, along with Tim McCreadie, Chris Madden, Brian Shirley and 10-time World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz, who enjoys racing his late model for fun.
The following Thursday, April 2 at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET, the UMP Modified Gator Championship returns to MAVTV, where Kyle Strickler will be going for his third straight victory in the prestigious dirt modified event.
But drivers such as three-time UMP Modified Gator winner Nick Hoffman, David Stremme, Jason Hughes, Kenny Wallace and NASCAR Xfinity Series star Justin Allgaier will all be trying to stop him.
Later in April on MAVTV, the DIRTcar Late Models will conclude their 49th DIRTcar Nationals with the Swamp King Championship (April 23), and we’ll see the season opener for the Super DIRTcar Series big-block modifieds (April 30), where Mat Williamson will begin his title defense.
