Story By: DAN KAPUSCINSKI / WEEDSPORT SPEEDWAY – WEEDSPORT, NY – When the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series takes on Weedsport Speedway on Wednesday, October 9 as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week Kick-Off Party, Dave Marcuccilli and Ronnie Davis III will be armed to defend their home turf.
Since Weedsport’s rejuvenation in 2014, Marcuccilli and Davis have arguably risen as the speedway’s two most decorated Sportsman competitors, now transitioning to the DIRTcar 358-Modified ranks.
Davis, who finished third in Fulton Speedway’s track championship standings, had two main event wins at the Highbanks this season. A former Sportsman Classic champion at Weedsport, with several main event wins, Davis has one top ten on the DIRTcar 358-Modified trail in 2019.
Marcuccilli is a three-time winner of the Sportsman Classic, a two-time Sportsman track champion at Weedsport, and scored one 358 triumph at Fulton Speedway in 2019.
Just last month, Marcuccilli dominated at Mohawk International Raceway to collect his first career 358-Modified Series victory. In eight series starts, Marcuccilli has one win, two top fives and seven top ten runs, trailing only Erick Rudolph in the championship hunt.
Each driver will be among the hometown favorites on Wednesday, October 9 as NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week kicks into high gear at Weedsport Speedway.
