This week marks the 36th anniversary of Super Dirt week. The Dirt races take place on Saturday and Sunday, but the festivities last all week. Fans can sit in the latest model of the Big Foot Monster truck, or walk through the pits and talk to the different drivers and teams.

The fans and drivers call the race the Daytona 500 of modified car racing.

Sis King who has two sons and a husband in the race says this is the biggest race of the year, and the the speeds are always tops, and a big jump from the smaller local races.

This event reaches fans young and old. Brandon Mactavish says this is his second year coming out, and says he really enjoys the event.

On saturday fans can watch the the Sportsman Championship race, and Sunday is host to the main event the Rite Aid 200 Modified Championship.

Drivers say this year the cars are faster and the competition is at an all time, so fans can expect a great time.

The story seems fine. However, I'm curious to know if you used this topic as previous story because you had quotes from sources.

i would have liked to have you tell me what DIRT stands for and why anyone should be interested in.
