Drydene Performance Products returns as title sponsor of Xtreme DIRTcar Series
Concord, North Carolina (September 30, 2020): Just eight months after the wrap-up of the inaugural year of competition for the revived Xtreme DIRTcar Series in February, Drydene Performance Products has returned as the title sponsor for its second year of operation, highlighted by a new six-race schedule and a redistributed $42,000 championship purse that spreads the funds throughout the top-10.
Drydene’s multi-year partnership keeps the iconic red-and-white color scheme of the historic brand and its lineup of engine oils and greases across the face of the Drydene Xtreme Series as part of its continued strong support of the Super Late Model community and dirt track racing. The Southeast’s premier Super Late Model talent will battle it out for the $15,000 championship prize, awarded at the season finale in February. An $8,000 prize will be awarded for the runner-up in points with $5,000 going to third place, $4,000 for fourth and $3,000 for fifth. Drivers must compete in all six races to be eligible for the points fund.
The 2020-21 Drydene Xtreme DIRTcar Series schedule welcomes four returning tracks to its schedule from the 2019-20 season and a single new venue into the mix. Kicking things off in the Palmetto State with the 30th running of the Blue Gray 100 at Cherokee Speedway on Sunday, Nov. 22, the stars of the Drydene Xtreme Series will go head-to-head with the regulars of the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series in a co-sanctioned event that will crown the 2020 Clash champion.
The Drydene Xtreme Series returns to action on Saturday, Dec. 5 at Volunteer Speedway for the 2nd annual Grinch 40 – the first of four consecutive 40-lap, $5,000-to-win events. Lavonia Speedway on Dec. 19, the second visit to Cherokee Speedway on Jan. 9 and the Series debut at Georgia’s Senoia Raceway on Feb. 20 will also feature the standard 40-lap, $5,000-to-win format.
Expect the best in Super Late Model action
South Carolinian Super Late Model veteran Chris Madden locked-up the inaugural championship in the season finale at Modoc Raceway in February, where the Drydene Xtreme Series will return once again in 2021 to crown a second champion on Feb. 27. $7,000 will also be on the line for the 40-lap Feature winner.
Drivers will accumulate points in the Drydene Xtreme Series standings according to the standard DIRTcar Late Model points structure, as detailed in the DIRTcar Late Model rulebook.
While other parts of the country will be covered in snow, Dirt Super Late Model fans around the world will be able to indulge in every lap of the Drydene Xtreme Series action live on DIRTVision presented by Drydene. Each of the events will also permit spectator attendance to see the new storylines unfold in person.
The Southeast region has arguably been producing the nation’s best Late Model racing since the action picked back up in late spring, with several drivers emerging as big contenders for the Drydene oil barrel trophy as Drydene Xtreme Series champion. Fans can expect to see drivers including Joey Coulter, Brandon Overton, Kyle Strickler, and Zack Mitchell. Other drivers will be announced as they are confirmed.
