DIRTcar Racing announced today the revival of one of its most storied brands with the launch of the Xtreme DIRTcar Series for Super Late Models. The Series is set to feature six to eight races in the Southeastern US starting in late November and wrapping up with a championship finale in February.

The Xtreme DIRTcar Series is designed to give racers and race fans a chance to “get their fix” through the winter months with a handful of high-quality special events at some of the South’s most exceptional facilities.

The schedule will feature $5,000-to-win, $500-to-start, 40-lap events with the Series opener and finale to include increased purses. Racers will also be competing for their share of a $45,000 point fund with $20,000 to the champion, $10,000 to second place, $5,000 to third place, and $1,000 to each driver who enters every event.

Entering every event will not be required for point fund eligibility, and drivers will only count a certain number of their highest point nights towards the championship.

Five races have already been confirmed for the 2019-2020 season, with the Inaugural Xtreme DIRTcar Series winter event being the 29th Annual Blue Gray 100 at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina, on Saturday, Nov. 23.

“We are honored to be the inaugural event for the new format Xtreme DIRTcar Series,” Cherokee Speedway Promoter Scott Childress, Promoter said. “Dirt Late Model racing in the South is almost a year-round sport as it is, but the Xtreme DIRTcar Series really gives us something to look forward to and build around.”

The Series will move on to Lavonia Speedway for a Sunday afternoon, 40-lap, $5,000-to-win affair on Dec. 15, followed by a 40-lap, $5,000-to-win event at Cherokee Speedway on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020 and another 40-lap, $5,000-to-win event at Cochran Speedway in Cochran, Georgia, on Saturday, Jan. 25.  The Series finale is set for Saturday, Feb. 29 at Modoc Raceway in Modoc, South Carolina.
