Dan Ferguson Headed For NAPA Super DIRT Week In Central New YorkTuesday - October - 2016
BLOOMFIELD, Ont. – October 4, 2016 – Dan Ferguson is set to head south of the border on Wednesday for the first night of NAPA Super DIRT Week. Ferguson will take his DIRTcar Sportsman Modified to Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, NY on Wednesday night.
His Ferguson Motorsports team will then travel up I-90 to Brewerton Speedway in Central Square, NY on Thursday night as part of the weeklong event. The event typically features the top drivers in Sportsman racing from Ontario, Quebec, New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
“Making the main event is a huge challenge,” Ferguson said of the level of competition expected. “If we qualify at either track where we only race once each year, I’ll be happy.”
The ‘Bloomfield Bullet’ is taking his own equipment to the event for the first time after last year piloting a Kevin Mastin-owned entry. In 2015, Ferguson qualified for the main event at Weedsport and missed out on an A-Main entry at Brewerton by one qualifying position. Any improvement on either result will be a big accomplishment for the Bloomfield, Ont. driver.
Ferguson debuted his newly acquired car at Brighton Speedway’s Applefest Shootout on September 23 when he finished eighth. It was his second Sportsman start since racing at Super DIRT Week last October. He also raced with the RoC Sportsman at Ohsweken Speedway in July.
“I am looking forward to racing at Super DIRT Week in our own equipment for the first time,” Ferguson said. “We ran very well at Brighton and I think we figured out a few issues with the car to make it better for this week.”
Following his trip to New York, Ferguson also plans to participate in Ontario’s final dirt track event of the season. The DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds join the 1000 Islands RV Centre Fall Nationals at Brockville Ontario Speedway October 14-15.
