Historic 50th Running of Super DIRT Week taking place Oct. 3-9

Oswego, NY – Fifty years of NAPA Super DIRT Week history will be bestowed upon the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 champion in October.

But what you’ll miss, if not careful, is the story it tells. At the base of the trophy and at the top are black acrylic ovals. From any side view, they appear as another element of the design. However, look from the top and you’re transported through time.
