03.20.2012 - Mardela Speedway to run Dirt Super Regional June 9

CONCORD, N.C. – Closely following the path of the newly developed Speedway Pavement Program for 2012,WKA officials are slowly assembling race dates and venues for the quest to find the ultimate dirt champion at the Daytona Dirt World Championships in December.

With July 28 already designated as a Super Regional at Possum Kingdom Super Speedway in Belton, South Carolina, part of the South Carolina Dirt Divisional Series, officials at Mardela Speedway, another participant in the WKA Dirt Divisional program, have chosen Saturday, June 9 as their date for their northeastern Super Regional event.

Closely resembling the Pavement program, track participants in the Dirt Program will be able to provide their competitors two opportunities to lock themselves into the field for the Dirt World Championships, first as a winner in the Super Regional event. However, if a competitor cannot secure a victory in the Super Regional, they still have an opportunity to claim a starting spot if they win their class championship.

If the Super Regional winner also wins the class title at years end, the runnerup in that respective class would then be eligible to secure the guaranteed starting spot at The World Center of Racing in December.

Here are the Mardela WKA Divisional and Super Regional dates.
