SYRACUSE, N.Y. - It was the moment dirt track racing fans wait for all year.
The 42nd annual Super Dirt Week wrapped up Sunday with the Syracuse 200. Fans call the race the "Super Bowl" of dirt track racing.
It has the biggest monetary prize of the year, with 50 thousand dollars going to the winner. But it's also a showcase for the season's top competitors.
Drivers worked their way up from local tracks all season to make it to Syracuse and compete in front of their biggest audience yet.
As for fans, many say they prefer dirt track to other forms of racing partly because of the unpredictability.
"You never know who's gonna win on the dirt. The dirt always changes, and I guess that just adds to the excitement," said Paul Sykes, an attendee of Super Dirt Week.
Before the race, fans were also able to get autographs from some of their favorite drivers.
