Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week Champion to Receive DTWC Provisional

With just a month remaining until the fourth annual Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week comes to life, the Ultimate Mid-Ohio Valley Super Late Model Series has announced an added bonus for its competitors. The 2018 miniseries champion will receive a provisional starting spot in this year’s Dirt Track World Championship (DTWC) at Ohio’s Portsmouth Raceway Park.

For Carl Short, who is the veteran DTWC promoter, adding a provisional starting spot for the Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week Champion in the 38th running of his legendary event made perfect sense.

“Robbie Cyrus (Ultimate MOV SLM Series promoter) has done a wonderful job with the series, and we definitely wanted to be a part of it by offering a provisional to the Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week Champion,” explained Short. “With the series having the last race at Portsmouth, not only are the teams racing for some good money, but that provisional only adds to the prestige of the entire series and definitely gives the teams something to shoot for in addition to the money for winning the championship.”
