New Super DIRT Week Format; Opinions Vary

With the 51st Super DIRT Week on tap Oct. 2-8, World Racing Group officials announced the latest in a string of seemingly yearly format changes for the headline event, the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 for big-block modifieds. Proponents see a strategy-heavy race with safer pit stops for teams not used to NASCAR-style stops. You’ll go to the tail in the order you pitted, so track position before the controlled stops will be important, too. But if we stop for both breaks, we’ll do tires at the same time and might even do a third set late in the race if it’s slick. “We always spent all week and especially the night before the 200 planning our pit stops, and now we’re on their program. If they get a bunch of newcomers because of no radios and controlled gas stops, guys will be pitting in the campground.”. “No matter what, you can’t discount a $51,000-to-win race,” he said.
