Last year a new series appeared on the scene as the Drydene Xtreme DIRTcar Series went in motion to fill the only void on the yearly racing calendar in the southeast. A six-race schedule was set and a prize of $20,000 was offered for the eventual champion. Ultimately, six drivers registered perfect attendance in what would prove to be a five-race tour after a weather-related issues claimed the event originally planned for Georgia’s Cochran Motor Speedway.
Chris Madden scored two feature wins and earned the series championship in the 2019-20 campaign. Zack Mitchell, Ross Bailes, and Pearson Lee Williams were also race winners a year ago.
The historic Blue-Gray 100 will again serve as the starter for the Xtreme DIRTcar Series as cars and drivers will take to the track at the Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC with a $10,000 first prize on the line. That event will be contested this Sunday(November 22, 2020).
Three states will host this season’s six events. Following the racing action at Cherokee, the series will move to the Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, TN on December 5th, the Lavonia(GA) Speedway on December 12th, then back to Cherokee on January 9th, Senoia(GA) Raceway on February 20th and finally to Modoc(SC) Raceway on February 27th.
This year’s champion will earn $15,000 with payouts extending through the top-10 positions in the final standings.
