Fireball Enduro, Super DIRTcar Big Block Series to cap off Speedway season

sean Sep 8, 2017 - 11:21am

The Cornwall Motor Speedway will cap off the 2017 season with a pair of great shows, the first of which will hit the track this Sunday.

One of the most popular events of the season is set for the afternoon of Sept. 10, with the Fireball Enduro taking over the speedway. 

Registration of cars will be done on two days, starting Saturday from noon until 4 pm, and continuing on Sunday from 8 am until the start of racing action at 2 pm.

Pit gates will open at 8 am at a cost of $20, and general admission will open at noon at a cost of $13 for adults, $7 for seniors, and $2 for kids 16 years old and under. Racing will start at 2 pm.

The race season will then officially conclude a week later (Sept. 17), with the Super DIRTcar Big Block Series completing the remake race.

Matt Sheppard has been the man to beat on the tour, trying to erase the deficit created by his two-race absence earlier in the season. Sheppard has won six of the last seven events. The tour has a busy month of September, travelling to Quebec this weekend and then to Brewerton, Mohawk, and Cornwall. Along with the 100-lap Modified, 50-lap Sportsman and 35-lap Pro-Stocks races will also be on the card.

Hot laps are scheduled to start at 4 pm, with time trials and heat racing to start at approximately 4:30 pm. The pit gates will open at noon with a cost of $45, and the general admission will open at 1:30 pm with a cost of $35 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $5 for kids 16 years old and under.
