This latest extension marks the third time the Mandan, N.D.-based Chevrolet dealership has re­newed its three-year sponsorship that furnishes point fund moneys for both divisions, along with individual track support for the series. 

“We are proud to support local dirt track racing in our community and thrilled to once again sign on as the title sponsor of the Dakota Classic Modified Tour,” said Kupper Chevrolet owner Bob Kupper.
