DIRTcar Summer Nationals 2019 Tour Features 28 Races in 32 Days With Nearly $800,000 At Stake

DIRTcar Summer NationalsCONCORD, NC — December 4, 2018 — The DIRTcar Summer Nationals “Hell Tour” is the most challenging month in dirt track racing, and 2019 will be no different.

The schedule features 28 race nights over 32 days covering about 3,800 miles from Peoria Speedway in Illinois on Wednesday, June 12, through Saturday, July 13, at Oakshade Speedway in Ohio. It will wind from Illinois to Indiana, down to Tennessee, back to Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin and Michigan before finally crowning at champion in Ohio. As daunting as it might sound, it’s actually about 800 miles less than previous seasons, saving that bit of wear and tear on the competitors.

At stake is nearly $800,000 in purses alone. If a driver was to win every race and collect the champion’s share of the point fund, he would pocket nearly $250,000 … a pretty decent month’s work!

New in 2019, fans will be able to follow the tour much easier by watching races on DIRTVision.com with a Late Model Fast Pass when the event isn’t at their home track. Know the stories before you get to the track by following along every night!
