CENTRAL SQUARE, N.Y. – Oct. 6, 2016 – Billy Decker led more than 75 laps in front of an excellent Brewerton Speedway crowd Thursday night to win the 24th Annual Billy Whittaker Cars & Trux Hurricane 100 presented by SUNY Canton Racing during the 45th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week.

 

The win was the first of Decker’s career at Brewerton on the DIRTcar 358 Modified Series tour. It didn’t come easy, but the “Franklin Flyer” certainly made it exciting. He owed the win to his No. 46 team.

 

“It’s been a long time coming,” Decker said. “I’m just happy to be here. I can’t thank Jeremy Smith and his entire team enough. These guys are all pumped and I’m just tickled because they’re very exciting to be around. They’re working really hard and it’s nice to see it pay dividends.”

The infrastructure is now here, the support from the fans and sponsors has been tremendous, and we look forward to improving on 2016 and making 2017 at Oswego Speedway the best Super DIRT Week yet.”

OSWEGO, NY — Oct. 5, 2016 — An unusually warm fall day set the scene for NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week's first day of practice at Oswego Speedway.
