Dirt Classic Qualifier

July 12th, 2014
After extensive work trying to find a raindate for the 410 Sprint Car Dirt Classic Qualifier that was rained out on June 8th, the final decision has been made not to schedule a make up. After trying a variety of options to find a date that would work for all parties involved it became apparent that no such date would be available. The limited open dates at the Speedway, combined with the very busy regional 410 Sprint Car Schedule left the event promoters with no option but to not reschedule. 

The Dirt Classic itself, paying $20,000 to win will be September 27th at the Lincoln Speedway. 

 Date: Saturday, Sept. 27
Track: Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa.
Prize: $20,000 to win; $50,000+ total purse
Advanced tickets are on sale by clicking Tickets will also be available on The Dirt Classic Facebook page, which will feature special giveaways throughout the year.
