(Halifax, NS. May 9 , 2012) Scotia Speedworld is pleased to announce that Dartmouth Dodge and “Atlantic Canada’s Action Centre” have partnered once again to present the Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman Series in 2012. The Sportsman division at Scotia Speedworld is the highest level of competition on the Weekly Racing Series ladder at the 3/10-mile oval and has produced some of the finest stock car racers and champions this region has ever seen. Sportsman cars are built from the ground up for fast paced excitement and high speeds, making them one of the fan favorites of the Weekly Racing Series.

In addition to the title sponsorship of the Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman Series, Dartmouth Dodge has come on board for two exciting nights of racing this season. The Sportsman 100 Presented by Dartmouth Dodge is the marquee event for the Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman Series and takes place the night before the Atlantic CAT 250 for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour on Friday, August 10th. Last season, Frankie Fraser (Shubenacadie, NS) won his record setting third Sportsman 100 Presented by Dartmouth Dodge. Dartmouth Dodge’s Mopar Express Lane will also present the Weekly Racing Series program on Friday, July 6th and will feature appearances from the Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman Series, Strictly Hydraulics Legends, Jack Daniels Trucks, ACE Lumbermart Thunder and Lightning divisions.
