The Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By VP was established in 2014 by Brett Deyo as a manageable Northeast touring series for big-block/small-block Modified teams. The series enters 2017 off the strength of an outstanding ’16 campaign that saw $390,025 distributed in purse money, $67,000 in point fund cash plus thousands more in bonuses and lap money.
The STSS boasts a North Region, with events contested primarily in New York State, and a South Region holding races in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. With liberal rules allowing for virtually any big- or small-block engine, car counts have soared, averaging more than 40 Modifieds per race. A balanced, non-top-heavy purse structure at each event and lucrative year-end point fund makes traveling affordable for weekend racers.
The STSS also features a series for Sportsman racers entering its second season.
Series founder Brett Deyo of BD Motorsports Media LLC promoted his first event – the Short Track SuperNationals – in 2006 at the age of 23. After years of presenting special events at several facilities, he announced the formation of STSS in December 2013. Deyo has promoted nearly 60 events in four states, is an award-winning motorsports journalist and operates the historic Georgetown Speedway, a half-mile clay oval in Georgetown, Del. He is also the administrator of the lucrative American Racer Cup program, which distributes more than $50,000 cash and more in product to racers at 13 speedways across the Northeast.
