The Mr. DIRTcar Home Track Championship pits local racers from across the the Northeast region against one another in pursuit of the title and points payout at DIRTcar sanctioned tracks throughout the region.

The points fund pays out between $1,000 and $6,000 to the champion, depending on the division. Decreasing amounts are awarded to top-points finishers. To be eligible, a competitor must be a DIRTcar member.
“Local racers and DIRTcar sanctioned tracks are the backbone of DIRTcar Northeast and we are excited to recognize the accomplishments of all who participate through the Mr. DIRTcar Home Track Championship,” Perrotte said. “We would not be able to do what we do without their continued support and investment. This year is shaping up to be a great one.”
