Dirty Jersey Modified Purse Hits $29,000
NEW EGYPT, N.J. – This year’s Pioneer Pole Buildings Inc. Dirty Jersey at New Egypt Speedway just got better. The June event, in its second year, features increased purse money for Super DIRTcar Series racers.
Upwards of $29,000 will be paid to big-block modified competitors for the Tuesday, June 17, 60-lapper.
“This is going to be a ‘must-see’ show of the summer,” said big-block modified driver Stewart Friesen, who is also part of the Friesen-Deyo Promotions team behind Dirty Jersey. “Our Super DIRTcar Series field last year was awesome. There was a mix of cars and talent racing together that night you only saw once all year, at that race.”
The field at this year’s event will once again be unmatched, with the lucrative purse structure awarding racers $400 to start, up from last year’s $300. The winner’s share at June’s Pioneer Pole Buildings Dirty Jersey will be $6,000.
The Dirty Jersey is slated to be the second event on a busy Super DIRTcar Series calendar in 2014. The opener takes place Wednesday, May 28 at Brockville Ontario Speedway.
