The new 67-lap, $7,567-to-win R.D. Hutchinson Memorial will be one of the highlights of the track’s 50th Jubilee season. It also marks the first time the Super DIRTcar Series will race twice at Can-Am in the same season since the Twin 50s in August of 2007.
“Can-Am has been a staple on our schedule for many years, not only with the Super DIRTcar Series, but all of our Northeast series,” Super DIRTcar Series Director Dean Reynolds said. “We’re excited to return in the fall to put on a great event for the fans as part of a jam-packed September schedule.”
Fans who attend the R.D. Hutchinson Memorial could witness history, as reigning Super DIRTcar Series champion Matt Sheppard chases his 100th series victory while hunting an unprecedented 11th title.
However, defending Billy Whittaker Cars 200 winner Mat Williamson and defending Can-Am 358 modified track champion Tim Fuller will be among the stout field of drivers trying to keep Sheppard out of victory lane.
With the addition of the September event, Can-Am is now the first leg of a doubleheader weekend.
After battling at Can-Am on Sept. 6, the Series moves to Weedsport (N.Y.) Speedway on Saturday, Sept. 7, for a $10,000-to-win feature that doubles as a Billy Whittaker Cars 200 Super DIRT Week qualifier.
That means one driver could walk away with $17,567 if they can sweep the weekend.
The Super DIRTcar Series starts its season at Volusia Speedway Park during the Federated Auto Parts DIRTcar Nationals, Feb. 14-17.
Every lap of each Super DIRTcar Series race can be streamed live through DIRTvision.
