SWEENEY RUSH SPORTSMAN MODIFIED RACERS TAKE HOME $23,000 IN VALUABLE PRODUCTS FOR "MANUFACTURERS NIGHT" PRESENTED BY MSD AT SHARON ON AUGUST 17

 (Pulaski, PA)...Sharon Speedway hosted the sixth annual "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance for the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sportsman Modified powered by Pace Performance division last Saturday night (August 17). While Garrett Krummert won his second straight Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series event, eligible drivers shared in a record $23,000 of product giveaways!

 
"Manufacturers Night" has grown each year for the division from $4,600 in the inaugural 2014 season at Lernerville Speedway to $11,000 for year two in 2015 at Sportsman's Speedway. Beginning in 2016, Sharon Speedway took on the "Manufacturers Night" and the value in prizes grew to $17,000; it jumped to $19,000 in 2017, and then hit another milestone of $20,000 last year at Sharon.
 
Twenty-five of the 33 drivers on hand were eligible for the product giveaways. Those 25 drivers and the cars they were competing in did not race in a non-RUSH sanctioned Sportsman Modified/602 event that conflicted with a RUSH-sanctioned event during the 2019 season. In order to remain eligible for the 2020 "Manufacturers Night", which is expected to grow again, drivers/cars cannot compete in a non-RUSH sanctioned Sportsman Modified/602 event effectively immediately up until the 2020 event.
 
There were 44 product packages valued at a minimum of $300 up to $1,420. With 25 drivers eligible, that meant 19 of them left with two product packages with a total value of at least $600! Those 25 drivers averaged receiving $920 in product giveaways!
 
"The rain tried to dampen the spirits early but what a great night of racing and product giveaways we had last Saturday for Manufacturers Night," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "The car count was great, the racing was tremendous with lots of lead changes and six drivers battling for the win at the end, and to see the racers leave with all the valuable product giveaways is tremendous. We have to thank the 28 companies that took part to support this night for the racers. It's much appreciated."
 
Jim Rasey, who is in his first year of RUSH racing, finished fifth in the feature, but won the night's grand prize of two TBM Brakes F1 Tornado Calipers and two F3 Tornado Calipers along with brake fluid plus a package of six sheets of white aluminum from Wrisco Industries for a total value of $1,870! 
 
Preston Cope may have failed to qualify for the feature, but record his third podium finish in the "Wheelman" race and was very lucky on the "Manufacturers Night" drawings. The 18-year-old fourth year RUSH Sportsman Modified racer won two Holley 80541-1 650 Carburetors for a total valued for $1,400!
 
Sharon Speedway points leader, Kole Holden, not only finished second for the second straight week as he's now finished in the top four all nine nights at Sharon this year, but also had a big night in the Manufacturers Night drawings. Holden won a Lincoln Electric Power Mig 140C Welder and Utility Cart along with a Modified Manifold Mounted Expansion Tank and Recovery Tank from Art's Radiator for a total value of $1,220!
 
Tony Tatgenhorst, who finished eighth in the feature and won his third "Wheelman" non-winners race, left with $1,185 in Manufacturers Night products. The Columbiana, Ohio driver won a trailer alarm system and Hasp Plus trailer lock from Trailer-Alarms.com along with a $500 gift certificate from Russ King Racing!  
 
"I am super excited to say that I won the Classic Ink prize so we are getting some shirts!," expressed RUSH racer Chelsie Kriegisch, who won the $600 48-piece apparel package. "I also won a prize from Landrum Springs so that will benefit and help us out too. Thank you to all the companies for donating!" Chelsie's sister Jessica also made out well winning a complete set of 4130 black FK Rod Ends along with a drum of RUSH 91 fuel and two Sunoco 5-Gallon Race Jugs for a total value of $900! The two sisters won a total $1,850 of products in the drawings.

ROSS ROBINSON WINS GEORGETOWN SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL SPECIAL FOR 1ST WIN OF 2019; DARYL CHARLIER A WINNER FOR THE 1ST TIME IN 2019 IN A SUBSTITUTION ROLE AT PITTSBURGH; JASON KNOWLES HOT AT WOODHULL

 

(Pulaski, PA)...Flooded tracks, rain delays, curfew beaters, mid-week racing and more defined a wild weekend in the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance family of speedways. Twp veteran racers were able to pick up their season's first wins in the RUSH Late Model division.

 
The weekend kicked off early at Delaware's Georgetown Speedway on Thursday where Ross Robinson chose the right time to win one at his home track. Robinson picked up a cool $2,000 for winning the Thursday night $5 Fan Appreciation special for the RUSH Late Models Weekly Series special event in front of a packed grandstands. Robinson held the lead for the full distance of the 25-lap race but was slowed when he caught lapped traffic. Robinson he was able to hold off the challenges of Joey Warren and 11th starting Amanda Whaley, who ultimately finished in second and third, respectively for his first RUSH win of 2019. Nick Davis and Tyler Reed rounded out the top five.
 
McKean County Raceway was scheduled to have the RUSH Late Models and RUSH Pro Mods last Thursday night for their annual fair race; however, big storms rolled in while teams were arriving and flooded the fairgrounds in East Smethport, Pa. It marked the third time in four years the Fair race has succumbed to Mother Nature.
 
Friday night at Conneaut, Ohio's Raceway 7, Kyle Zimmerman was looking to double up on his sole win of the season when he started from the front row of the 20-lap feature alongside of Joe DeFazio. Zimmerman held off all challengers, including some heavy hitters in the division through a series of cautions and a red flag period. Zimmerman prevailed over Matt Latta, Jason Genco, Dave Airgood and DeFazio. A strong field of 25 cars were on hand as Raceway 7 has had solid car counts all season. With just two race nights to tally points at Raceway 7, Darrell Bossard holds a substantial lead over Airgood. Five-division racing resumes this Friday.
 
Dog Hollow Speedway made yet another move this week, this time to Friday night. Colin Casale and Braeden Dillinger led the RUSH Late Models to the green flag with Dillinger taking the lead. He set the pace for the first four laps, before mechanical problems caused him to relinquish the lead to Jakob Piper. Piper of Mercersburg, Pa. then held off Casale and Tim Snare Jr. the rest of the way to pick up his first ever DHS victory. The top five were: Piper, Casale, Snare, Mark Read and Devin Grubb. With the exception of a possible race on October 14, the 2019 season has concluded at Dog Hollow.
 
It all comes down to Friday night at Lernerville Speedway in the RUSH Pro Stock division, where a season-long battle has raged on between Tyler Dietz and Corey McPherson. Last Friday night, Dietz was leading the 20-lap feature, when ninth starting Joey Zambotti was able to get around him for the lead on the 17th circuit. Zambotti went on for his third win, with Dietz holding on to the runner-up spot putting himself in the driver's seat on top of the point standings following a fifth-place finish by McPherson. Lernerville's RUSH Pro Stocks are always the last event of the evening so it will be well into the evening until a champion is finally crowned this Friday night on Champions Night.
 
After an exciting night for the "Jook George Steel City Classic" that featured a record payoff and Kyle Lukon winning more than $11,600, the RUSH Late Models returned to Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway on Saturday night for a regular night of racing. Despite a lengthy rain delay, the show was completed just before the curfew. Once again driving for Bobby Springer, Daryl Charlier bested the field, which included three RUSH Touring Series regulars for his first win of 2019. Christian Schneider was the runner-up with Nico Dabecco, John Mollick and Ben Policz making up the top five. Points will be counted until the end of September in all divisions at PPMS. Ben Policz holds a slim lead over Christian Schneider in the championship standings.
 
The RUSH Sportsman Modified Touring Series paid its third visit of the season to Hartford, Ohio's Sharon Speedway on Saturday night and second points race. It was also the "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance with $23,000 in giveaways to the racers. Sharon fought through evening showers that delayed the program 30 minutes.
 
Garrett Krummert took his second straight Tour win at Sharon in an excitement-filled 25-lap feature event. In victory lane, Krummert, who only took the lead with two laps to go by passing Rob Kristyak. "That was a hell of a race- if you didn't enjoy that then I don't know what to say- that was RUSH Mod racing at its finest," said Krummert, who earned his third Sharon win of the year. Kole Holden, Rob Kristyak, Chas Wolbert and Jim Rasey made up the top five. Tony Tatgenhorst took the win in the non-winners race for the third time this season.
 
The RUSH Sprints were also a part of the racing card at Sharon on Saturday night and once again, Chad Ruhlman towed from his Bemus Point, New York home and stood in victory lane at Sharon for the second time in three tries this season and third time in four tries in the history of the division at Sharon.  Zach Morrow and Brian Ruhlman were a very close and third. Brandon Blackshear and 12th starting Andy Feil rounded out the top five. Both RUSH divisions will return to Sharon Speedway this Saturday night.
 
Max Blair picked up the win over Dave Lyon at Busti, New York's Stateline Speedway on Saturday night. The win came over a strong 22-car field and was Blair's third Stateline win of the season; meanwhile, it was Lyon's first time out for the season. Jason Genco was third for the second straight race as Scott Gurdak and Darrell Bossard completed the top five. Stateline will be off this Saturday night, but racing resumes on August 31 when all point titles will be decided with Blair holding a large lead over Gurdak.
 
Much like PPMS and Sharon, a rain delay altered the race night activities at New York's Woodhull Raceway. Steve LeBarron seemingly had the RUSH Late Model race in his control through the early laps once racing got underway, but Jason Knowles and Kurt Stebbins worked their way from the rear of the pack to put pressure on LeBarron for the lead. When LeBarron hooked the cushion in the late laps, Knowles was able to slip by and take the lead. Knowles and Stebbins battled for the lead, but in the end it was Jason Knowles with his third in a row and fourth of the season over Stebbins, Brian Knowles, John Haggerty and Wayne Robertson for the top five. Sixteen cars were on hand, which was the second highest count of the season. No RUSH Late Models at Woodhull this Saturday night.
 
In RUSH Asphalt Series action, Jennerstown Speedway Late Model point leader Teddy Gibala picked up his sixth win of the 2019 campaign, cushioning his lead over Barry Awtey. Gibala bested Gary Wiltrout, Awtey, Bryan Shipp and Joe Maruca. Anthony Aiello, the current point leader in the RUSH Asphalt Modifieds, notched his second win of the season over Jason Busch, RJ Dallape, Adam Kostelnik and Tom Golick. Not to be outdone, RUSH Asphalt Street Stock point leader also took home the checkered flag on Saturday night over Casey Fleegle, Zac Todaro, Jeremy Shaffer and Mel Wilt. Five-division racing continues at Jennerstown with the point chases coming into focus.
 
After a week off for Motocross racing, Potomac Speedway returns to action this Friday.
 
Winchester Speedway will have the RUSH Late Models back on the schedule after a couple weeks off and will hold a double-header with two 20-lap feature races. The first is a make-up race from August 3 followed by the regularly scheduled 20-lapper that will determine the point title with former 2017 "Futures Cup" Champion Devin Brannon holding a nearly insurmountable lead over another former "Futures Cup" racer in Levi Crowl.
 
Delaware International, Fulton and Genesee Speedways all fell victim to Mother Nature on Saturday. Fulton and Genesee will have the RUSH Late Models in action this Saturday night, while DIS has no racing this Saturday.
 
Humberstone got pounded with rain leaving a flooded facility on Sunday morning forcing them to cancel. They will try again this Sunday night. Both Eriez and Old Bradford Speedway will return to action this Sunday evening as well. Extra money will be on the line for the RUSH Late Models at Bradford.

GARRETT KRUMMERT EMERGES VICTORIOUS FROM 7TH WITH A LATE RACE CHARGE FOR 2ND STRAIGHT HOVIS TOUR WIN AT SHARON FOR SWEENEY RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS; $23,000 IN PRODUCT GIVEAWAYS FOR "MANUFACTURERS NIGHT" PRESENTED BY MSD

(Hartford, OH)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sportsman Modified Series powered by Pace Performance was part of the Menards "Super Series" program on Saturday night for the second time in two weeks at Sharon Speedway. It was the second of three appearances by the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series at the Hartford, Ohio 3/8-mile oval for the 2019 season excluding the non-point 2018 "Apple Festival Nationals" make-up on May 11. Despite very threatening weather, points race #3 of the 2019 season attracted a season high 33 cars for the sixth annual "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance as eligible racers shared in $23,000 of product giveaways. There were 44 product packages valued at a minimum of $300 up to $1,420 as several racers won two packages.
 
Seventh starting Garrett Krummert came on late, passed Rob Kristyak on a restart, and led the final two laps to win an exciting 25-lap main event that featured officially four lead changes and six cars challenging for the win in the closing laps. For Krummert, it was his second straight $600 Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series victory for the defending champion, and third of the season at Sharon. Krummert also received another Sunoco 5-Gallon Race Jug.
 
"That was a hell of a race- if you didn't enjoy that then I don't know what to say," expressed the 31-year-old Ellwood City, Pa. racer. "That was RUSH Mod racing at its finest. I have to thank my car owner Jerry Schaffer. Also have to thank Vicki (Emig) at RUSH for the Manufacturers Night and all of the great prizes she gets for the racers."

 
Top runners Chas Wolbert and Rob Kristyak led the 24-car field to green with Kristyak taking the early advantage. The two would race side-by-side for the lead on laps two and three with Kristyak maintaining the top spot. Jim Rasey started sixth and moved into the top five on lap three then got under Gary Haupt for fourth on lap four. Back up front, Wolbert overtook Kristyak slipping under him in turn four on lap five. Wolbert then began to distance himself from the field on lap seven. Rasey and Tony Tatgenhorst were battling for third, while Kristyak closed in on Wolbert in lapped traffic on lap 16 before newcomer Gage Priester brought out the caution with 17 laps scored.
 
When green replaced yellow on lap 18, Rasey, ninth starting Kole Holden, and Krummert moved into positions three through five as they dropped Tatgenhorst out of the top five. Kristyak went back to P1 as he drove around Wolbert in turn four on lap 19. The two ran side-by-side on lap 20 with Wolbert going back to the lead on the 20th circuit. A caution for Jerry Schaffer with 22 laps scored slowed action.
 
Back under green, it was nearly four-wide for the lead racing off turn four as Kristyak maintained the top spot, but Krummert and Holden worked their way to second and third before another spin by Priester halted action for the final time with 23 laps scored. This set up a two-lap dash to the finish as Krummert made the winning move on the restart; meanwhile, Holden passed Kristyak on the last lap for second. Krummert's Jerry Schaffer Racing, Turn 4 Toilets-sponsored #10s took his third career Tour win by 0.320 of a second. The victory was also Krummert's fifth of his career in the division at Sharon.
 
Holden was second for the second straight week as he's now finished in the top four all nine nights at Sharon this year to lead the points. Holden also had a big night in the Manufacturers Night drawings as he received a Lincoln Electric Power Mig 140C Welder and Utility Cart along with a Modified Manifold Mounted Expansion Tank and Recovery Tank for a total value of $1,220.
 
Kristyak dropped to third, but was able to take over the $3,000 to-win Hovis Weekly Series points lead over Wolbert, who was fourth.  Wolbert was another driver that was successful with the drawings winning a Yamaha Pressure Washer from Alternative Power Sources and a complete set of 4130 black FK Rod Ends for a total value of $1,490.
 
Rasey completed the top five and won the night's grand prize of two TBM Brakes F1 Tornado Calipers and two F3 Tornado Calipers along with brake fluid plus a package of six sheets of white aluminum from Wrisco Industries for a total value of $1,870! Eric Gabany went 13th to sixth over Blaze Myers, Tatgenhorst, Connor King, and Haupt.
 
Calvin Clay raced from 23rd to 14th and received a $100 Precise Racing Product "Pedal Down" Hard Charger gift card. After dropping from fourth to seventh in his heat race, Jacob Jordan went fifth to second in the B main then advanced three spots in the feature and was chosen as the Sherwood Wheels "Man of Steel" recipient. David Kalb, Jr. held off the Kriegisch sisters to finish second in his heat race to qualify for the feature redraw and was selected as the Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive of the Night" recipient. Greg Porter earned the TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" as mechanical woes at the start of the feature ended his night and wasn't able to run the "Wheelman" race as well.
 
Heat winners were Haupt, Kristyak, Wolbert, and Krummert, while Jim Bryce won the last chance B main. Wolbert established a new track record during his heat race with a lap of 16.728.
 
After four of the first six scheduled starters scratched, Tony Tatgenhorst passed Gage Priester on the opening lap and never looked back to win his leading third "Wheelman" Non-Winners race presented by Ohio Intra Express and C&R Tire for the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. The 39-year-old Columbiana, Ohio earned another $75 in his All State Integrity of Salem/Edwards Flower Shop-sponsored #63T. In addition to his eighth place feature finish and "Wheelman" win, Tatgenhorst left $1,185 in Manufacturers Night product winning a Trailer-Alarms.com trailer alarm system, Hasp Plus trailer lock along with a $500 gift certificate from Russ King Racing.
 
Amelia Clay passed Priester on lap two to finish second as she remains second in "Wheelman" points. Preston Cope came from seventh to finish third and also won two Holley 80541-1 650 Carburetors valued at $1,400! "Wheelman" points leader Cameron Nastasi was fourth ahead of rookie Brandon Albert.

DEREK MAGEE 1ST EVER SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL WIN COMES AT DELAWARE; KYLE MURRAY WINS $1000 SPECIAL IN 1ST EVER APPEARANCE AT FULTON; 1ST WIN OF 2019 FOR CHUCK BOWIE; TERRY YOUNG ENDS 3-YR WINLESS DROUGHT IN RUSH PRO STOCKS AT LERNERVILLE
(Pulaski, PA)...A near perfect weekend from the weatherman as the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance family of speedways enjoyed three full days of great racing. Several drivers were able to win either their first ever races, first races of 2019 or first race at a particular track.
 
The action kicked off Friday night at Potomac Speedway where Chuck Bowie went green to checkered in the 20-lap RUSH Late Model feature event. On his way to victory, Bowie set a new track record of five minutes and 38 seconds to run the non-stop race. Bowie has suffered a difficult season but was quick to thank the right person in victory lane. "Most nights it's just me and my wife Rosie, she does so much, I don't know what I'd do without her." Bowie's first win came in the 14th race of the season at the southern Maryland oval. Dale Hollidge, Mike Raleigh, Jeremy Pilkerton and Ben Bowie made up the top five. After a weekend of motocross racing, Potomac Speedway returns to stock car racing action on August 23.
 
Point races are coming into view at Conneaut, Ohio's Raceway 7 on Friday night where Darrell Bossard padded his substantial lead over Dave Airgood, Jr. with a victory over runner-up Matt Latta. The win was not without a fight for Bossard, who had to hold back the likes of Latta and Airgood, who would settle for third.  After being shutout of victory lane for the first four weeks, Bossard has now won four of the last eight feature events. Jason Genco and Breyton Santee rounded out the top five.   Five-Division racing returns to Raceway 7 this Friday night.
 
The RUSH Late Models made their second appearance of the season at New York's Brewerton Speedway on Friday night. In the 20-lap feature, Dale Caswell and Kyle Sopaz ran almost the entire distance side-by-side within inches of each other, never touching, while swapping the lead back and forth all over the speedway.  In the later laps, Chad Homan joined the battle up front. The difference in the race came down to a late caution and single file restart that allowed Dale Caswell to drive away for the win- his second overall in RUSH for 2019. Kyle Sopaz, Chad Homan, Brian Knowles and Kevan Cook finished second through fifth.
 
Friday night in the RUSH Pro Stock ranks, it was a long time coming for Lernerville Speedway regular Terry Young when he checkered his first feature at the Sarver, Pennsylvania oval since 2016! Young's victory did not come easy as he had to hold off the best in the business that Lernerville has to offer. Young passed Joey Zambotti then kept Tyler Dietz and Corey McPherson at bay in the final laps. Joe Kelley and Brett McDonald were fourth and fifth. Just two weeks remain in the point titles at Lernerville with McPherson holding a slim lead over Dietz.
 
The eyes of the RUSH Late Model world were on Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway on Saturday night for the 30th running of the "Jook George Steel City Classic", a RUSH Touring Series race that would break records for payouts in all sorts of ways for RUSH as over $43,000 was posted much in part to the efforts of race promoter Branden Lockwich. A minimum of $10,010 would go to the winner, with more added in bonus money along the way.
 
When the checkered flag fell over winner Kyle Lukon, who picked up his second tour event in as many tries, he took home a cool $11,610 in winnings for the night. A race full of twists and turns for Lukon and others, the Burgettstown, Pa. driver was understandably thrilled in victory lane. "I thought I threw it all away when I got into the wall in (turns) one and two. I was surprised on the last restart to see Logan (Roberson) take the bottom, but I threw it away anyways with a bad restart. Then I got a big run down the front stretch with five to go and I knew that was my only shot at it, so I was just hoping I'd clear him. Logan probably could have moved me if he wanted to. It's great running with him- he's a class act and one of the best there is."
 
Roberson crossed as runner-up with Ross Robinson, Eddie Carrier, Jr. and Garret Paugh made up the top five, with Chad Sines taking the 12-lap, $400 to-win Non-Qualifier race for the first time ever. Racing continues at PPMS this Saturday. The RUSH Late Model Touring Series returns to action once again at PPMS on October 4-5 for the "Bill Hendren Memorial" part of the "Pittsburgher 100" weekend.
 
New York's Fulton Speedway was the site of a $1,000-to-win RUSH Late Model Weekly Series special event where 18 race teams signed into the pits. The 25-lap race saw Kyle Murray and Chris Fleming pace the field and trade the top spot over the first couple of laps. The battle between Fleming and Murray continued throughout much of the event with the two trading the lead. The closing laps saw side-by-side and bumper-to-bumper racing between the two through heavy traffic with Murray making his first trip to Fulton Speedway a memorable one going to Fulton's victory lane. Fleming settled for second with Dale Caswell, Chad Homan and Kyle Sopaz finishing third through fifth. Racing resumes at Fulton this Saturday with just three race nights remaining on the schedule with Fleming trailing Chad Homan for the title by 25 points.
Saturday night at Sharon Speedway, Chas Wolbert became the all-time winningest driver in the RUSH Sportsman Modified division on the strength of his 12th career win in the division. Wolbert moved to the lead from his fifth place starting position and finished there over points leader Kole Holden, who came from seventh. It was Wolbert's track leading third victory of the season. Jim Rasey, Rob Kristyak and Will Thomas III were third through fifth. Tony Tatgenhorst picked up his second victory of the season by winning the "Wheelman" Non-Winners event. The RUSH Sportsman Modified Touring series invades the Hartford, Ohio oval this Saturday for "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance with $23,000 in product giveaways and will be joined by the RUSH Sprint Cars.
 
At Delaware International Speedway on Saturday night, Derek Magee took advantage of his front starting position becoming another first-time 2019 winner in the RUSH Late Model division. Magee would drive a consistent race and not falter with the late race challenges of Sparky White. Jason Dean, Trevor Collins, and Matt Hill, who completed the top five.
 
Jason Knowles and Dustin Waters took the heat race wins at New York's Woodhull Raceway, with Knowles going on the pick up his second straight feature win and third of the season at the track in RUSH Late Model competition. Kane Stebbins, who hadn't finished in the top five all season long, was a career best second in his first season in a RUSH Late Model. Kurt Stebbins, Dusty Waters and Steve LeBarron finished third through fifth. Racing resumes this Saturday at Woodhull.
 
Jennerstown hosted a special event for the RUSH Asphalt Modifieds on Saturday night. RJ Dallape picked up the win with Anthony Aiello, Jason Busch, Jeff Dunfee and Mike Carlson making up the top five. Jennerstown gets back to five division racing this Saturday when it will be Autograph Night.
 
Sunday night at Eriez Speedway it was all about the open wheel racers. Among them were the RUSH Sprints, where Chad Ruhlman continued his winning ways. Ruhlman took the lead from Zach Morrow on lap eight following a restart and cruised to his season's sixth win. Morrow was second over Bonnell's Rod Shop points leader, Brian Woodhall with Jeremy Weaver and former Eriez Stock Car racer, Brad Church, completing the top five. The RUSH Late Models will be off again this Sunday night due to the World of Outlaws Late Models special event.
 
The RUSH Late Models will return to Genesee Speedway this Saturday after a week away.
 
After a week off, New York's Stateline Speedway will return to their Six Pack racing this Saturday when it will be Veterans and Youth Baseball night as the RUSH Late Models and Pro Mods will be in action.
 
Dog Hollow Speedway was off this past weekend and will now change race nights again, this time to Fridays starting this week for the RUSH Late Models.
 
The RUSH Late Models will also return to the Humberstone Speedway schedule this Sunday.  
 
After a few weeks away, the RUSH Late Models will return to the Winchester Speedway schedule on August 24 where they will run a regular program plus a make-up feature.

KYLE LUKON GOES BACK-TO-BACK IN SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR AT PITTSBURGH WINNING THE BIGGEST RACE OF HIS CAREER IN THE "JOOK GEORGE STEEL CITY CLASSIC"; LUKON EARNS $11,610 AMONGST THE RECORD $43,000+ PAYOUT

 

(Imperial, PA)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series presented by Pace Performance returned to Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway on Saturday night for the second of three appearances of 2019 at dirt's "Monster Half-Mile". A beautiful evening allowed for a large turnout of fans and 42 drivers from nine different states were represented for the 30th annual "Jook George Steel City Classic" presented by Zarin Truck & Automotive. The richest event in the 13-year history of Crate Late Model racing in the Northeast featured a record payoff of more than $43,000 thanks much in part by the efforts of fifth year event promoter, Branden Lockwich, who raised over $28,000!  

 
It took Kyle Lukon over six years to return to victory lane in a Sweeney RUSH Tour event after winning the July 20 "Manufacturers Night" show at Pittsburgh, but Lukon certainly didn't have to wait that long for his next win. And what a win it was! Lukon and the Tour returned to the "Monster Half-Mile" on Saturday night and the 29-year-old earned the biggest payoff of his career. Lukon passed Virginia invader Logan Roberson, who raced to the front from the 18th starting spot, on lap 46 and led the rest of the way for the popular win. The 50-lap "Jook George Steel City Classic" victory was worth $10,010 plus a $1,000 bonus from Miley Motor Sports and Lockwich for contributing to the event, $500 for setting fast time in memory of Tanya Flinner, and $100 for his runner-up dash finish bringing his night's earnings to a whopping $11,610!
 
"This is just amazing what this race has turned into," expressed the Burgettstown, Pa. driver after his 36th career PPMS win. "Branden puts so much effort into this. I think just about every driver contributed money to the purse. My mom and sister did it about 12 years ago and I won that race then a few people since like Mark Flinner and Branden have taken over to try and build it up. Branden has made it his baby. I thought I had a good shot back at Lernerville for the $10,000 and felt like I had that one taken from me, but that's racing I guess."
 
"At the beginning of the race I got the jump on John (Mollick) and was trying to get out there and set an early pace, but the next thing I knew he came flying in there and wanted the lead," explained Lukon. "The cautions weren't really working to my favor as I'd get going then get stuck on the bottom. I thought I threw it all away when I got into the wall in (turns) one and two. I was surprised on the last restart to see Logan (Roberson) take the bottom, but I threw it away anyways with a bad restart. Then I got a big run down the frontstretch with five to go and I knew that was my only shot at it so I was just hoping I'd clear him. Logan probably could have moved me if he wanted to. It's great running with him- he's a class act and one of the best there is. I have to thank everyone that supports me. I want to thank Alex (Ferree) for running my other car. It was fun battling with him a handful of laps."
 
It was three-wide for the lead on the opening lap with Lukon and his teammate Alex Ferree racing by John Mollick, while sixth starting Colton Flinner moved to fourth ahead of Ross Robinson. After falling to third, Mollick would pass Ferree for second on lap two then went after Lukon and put a slider on him in turns one and two for the lead on lap four. Mollick began to distance himself from the field as he dealt with lapped traffic on lap seven, but a caution for Michael Duritsky, Jr. would bring out the event's first caution with seven laps scored.
 
When racing resumed, Flinner grabbed third from Ferree. It took 10 laps this time for Mollick to get into lapped traffic as he had a half-straightaway lead built up and once again the caution would erase Mollick's lead. This time it was for Dan Angelicchio, who clobbered the wall in turns three and four. Angelicchio had raced from 23rd to eighth and was flying around the topside of the speedway until his night abruptly ended.
 
One more lap was completed before the third place running Flinner slammed the wall. This moved Ferree back to third for the restart and when racing resumed on lap 19, he was able to pass Lukon for the second spot; however, one lap later Ferree found himself the odd man out on a three-wide battle as Lukon regained second with 10th starting Garret Paugh moving into third. Duritsky's night ended when he brought out another caution- this time with 20 laps scored.
 
Back under green on lap 21, Paugh would move to runner-up past Lukon, while Roberson made his presence known for the first time racing up into the fourth spot. Lap 22 saw Lukon race back to second once again as Roberson followed in third as the two dropped Paugh back to fourth. By the halfway point, the top three of Mollick, Lukon, and Roberson pulled away from the field. Flinner would find the wall once again bringing out another caution with 29 laps completed.
 
When racing resumed on lap 30, Roberson overtook Lukon for second and went after Mollick as he began to close the deficit. By lap 37, Roberson was right on the track's two-time 2019 Sweeney Weekly Series winner. Roberson then pulled alongside Mollick on lap 39 and the two raced side-by-side for the lead with Roberson edging ahead to lead lap 40 as Mollick got into the wall. Mollick then would lose second to Lukon the following lap as he had a tire begin to go down, and would bring out the caution with 44 laps scored. Mollick was chosen as the TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" recipient and also received $100 from Dan Holtgraver.
 
Roberson got a great restart to open up some ground on Lukon for the final six-lap run to the finish, but Lukon would run back down the 2017 Sweeney RUSH National Weekly Series Champion. Lukon would use a cross-over move coming off turn four with the five-lap to-go signal being given and would slide under Roberson entering turn one for the winning move. Lukon led the remaining laps in the Phil Lukon-owned, Race 1/Tru Form/Frankland Racing Supply/Lukon's Reb-Fab/Poske's Performance Parts-sponsored #184 Rocket Chassis by a winning margin of 1.399 seconds for his third career Tour win.
 
(Note: Lukon's engine was tore down in post-race tech and was found to be 100% legal per the GM 604 Technical Manual, and the win will be official once the results of the fuel and tire samples that were taken are verified to be in compliance.)
 
Despite earning $5,000, Roberson was a disappointed second in his first Sweeney Tour start since winning at his home track, Winchester Speedway, back on April 20 in the "Battle of the Bay" presented by Wehrs Machine show. Roberson was the Precise Racing Products "Pedal Down" Hard Charger and received a $100 gift card.
 
"That caution killed me," stated the 21-year-old Waynesboro, VA driver. "We had a really good race car. There's not much you can say. Finishing second is like kissing your sister, but congrats to Kyle (Lukon). He had control of those last six laps because I was a sitting duck. I had to choose where to go, when to go, and how fast to go. I just wish that caution hadn't come out, but that's racing. I hope all you fans enjoyed that- if it wasn't for you we wouldn't be racing. I can't thank the track enough for a good track; it was real racey- top, bottom, middle whatever you wanted to do. I also have to thank RUSH- Mike (Leone) and Vicki (Emig) put on a great series. I have a badass crew and I can't thank them enough. We might have started 18th, but there was no giving up and there was no doubt in their mind I wasn't going to do good."
 
After falling out of contention, Robinson came on late to get back into the top five and take third place after his pass on lap 46. Robinson earned $2,500 for his third place finish as he's now had four podium finishes in five 2019 Tour starts. Robinson was also chosen as the Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive of the Night" recipient for holding off Paugh to make the dash and then holding off Eddie Carrier, Jr. for third in the feature.
 
"That was a long race," acknowledged the 29-year-old Georgetown, DE driver. "This is a unique place. I was here a couple times last year. When you go to the outside, you better hit it if you're going to have any speed. When it cleans up you can go all over the track and obviously for Logan to come from 18th to take the lead showed the ability to pass. We weren't the best car, but we were competitive enough to be in the mix when it counted. We'll work harder to make it better, but congrats to Kyle and Logan on their runs. We can't hang our heads on third with this crowd of cars and this far from home."
 
Carrier, who started 12th, quietly raced up to fourth at the finish to earn $2,000 as the West Virginia racer was the fourth different state represented in the top four. After getting as high as second, Paugh dropped to fifth at the finish for $1,500. "Futures Cup" racer and Tour rookie, Logan Zarin, had his best career Tour finish in sixth after starting 20th to earn $1,300. Braeden Dillinger, another first year Tour regular, finished seventh to earn $1,207 thanks to a $107 bonus from Jake and Scott Gunn in memory of Dave Nicholas. Matt Latta was eighth for $1,050 as he's now finished in the top eight in all three 2019 Tour starts. Christian Schneider also received $1,050 for his ninth place finish thanks to a $50 bonus from Bryant Hank for being the top finisher of the top 10 in PPMS points. Nico Dabecco completed the top 10.
 
Chad Sines closed out the night leading all 12 laps of the "Wheelman" Non-Qualifier holding off a last lap charge by Levi Crowl and Jamie Wrightsman for the $400 victory. Wrightsman started back in seventh and was up to third after one lap then passed Crowl for second on lap two. Crowl returned the favor on lap five getting back by Wrightsman for second. Crowl and Wrightsman then chased down Sines and was all over him on the final lap, but Sines' Yuhasz Bros Farms/JD's Pit Stop/Cerni Motor Sales/Dar Slusher Trucking/NAPA/Midway Chevrolet/Russ King Racing/955 Automotive-sponsored #15 took the win by just 0.230 of second. The 32-year-old Orwell, Ohio driver became the 38th different Non-Qualifier winner in 45 races run all-time and tied Wrightsman for the "Wheelman" points lead. Zach Gunn was fourth over Tony White.  
 
Lukon set fast time overall in FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock" Qualifying with a lap of 20.197. Lukon received a total of $500 thanks to $300 from efforts of John Flinner, Jr. with $100 from Fire Fighter, $100 from Gobblers Knob Hunting Preserve, and $100 from Taylor, John, and Pap in memory of Tanya Flinner along with $100 from Damian Bidwell Racing, and the standard $100 from FK.
 
Michael Reft, Flinner, Ferree, and Mollick each added $25 for winning the FK Rod Ends heat races, while Justin Lamb and Duritsky won the $50 last chance B mains. Matt Shuffstall put up $404 for the "John Beatty Memorial" Dash, which was won by Mollick. Thanks to other contributors, each spot in the dash had a cash payoff.
 
Reft's 13th place feature finish allowed him to not only earn $675, but also a $150 spoiler kit from Ontime Body and Graphic. The Zarin Truck & Automotive "$500 Club" drawings were co-sponsored by Mike's Auto Repair & Sales as the $100 drawings for the top 15 in PPMS points went to Schneider, Policz, Mollick, White, and Bryan Hoffman. HTMA/Precise Racing Products posted five $30 gift cards with those going to Colby Beighey, Brian Goebel, Pete Wearing, Jared Kane, and Clayton Tarabori. John Waters received the $100 Close Racing Supply gift certificate.
 
Dan and Troy Holtgraver were recognized with appreciation plaques from Lockwich for their efforts in starting the "Jook George Steel City Classic" back in 1990.
 
"It's really amazing how this event has grown and how so many people have gotten behind it to make this all possible," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Branden has led the efforts of transforming this from a special weekly event to a record breaking major Touring Series show. We can't thank the George Family, Miley Motor Sports, Branden and so many others for their amazing contributions and allow us to present this as RUSH Late Model Touring Series event and to see over $43,000 posted and the feature paying $550 to-start is incredible. It was great racing all night and we have to thank the drivers for their support as well as those that also contributed to boost the event even more."
 
The Sweeney Tour will be off now until October 4-5 for the third and final race of the season at Pittsburgh for the annual "Bill Hendren Memorial" as part of the "Pittsburgher" with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. The event will pay a minimum of $4,000 to-win. The season will then conclude at Lernerville Speedway for the "Steel City Stampede" on October 18-19.

PAUGH WINS 1ST EVER AT PITTSBURGH IN RUSH LATE MODELS WHILE GURDAK CELEBRATES 61ST BIRTHDAY WITH 1ST WIN OF 2019 AT STATELINE; MORROW CAPTURES 1ST OF THE SEASON IN RUSH SPRINTS & 1ST EVER AT PITTSBURGH

(Pulaski, PA)...Racing rolls on as the calendar turned to August last weekend for the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance family of speedways as points battles start to come into focus. Three drivers found victory lane for the first time of the year, while several others repeated at their respective tracks, and some others continued their hot streaks..

 
Unfortunately, rain ruined any chance of racing action for the RUSH Pro Stocks at Lernerville Speedway on Friday night when a heavy rainstorm moved through the area in the evening and knocked out any chance of racing. With just three Friday nights until championships are determined, Corey McPherson holds slim seven-point advantage over Tyler Dietz. Racing will continue at the Sarver, Pennsylvania oval this Friday night.
 
Friday night at Maryland's Potomac Speedway, Ben Bowie took advantage of his pole position start on the grid and set a new track record on his way to one of the quickest victories turned in a 20-lap RUSH Late Model feature event at Potomac. The six-minute feature event was Bowie's third of the season. "Tonight was one of those nights where I didn't have to push the car too hard and it ran just about perfect," stated Bowie in victory lane. Mike Raleigh, in a career best finish, took second with Kyle Lear, Jeremy Pilkerton and Chuck Bowie rounding out the top-five. Another six-division racing card is on tap for this Friday including the RUSH Late Models.
 
Friday night at Conneaut, Ohio's Raceway 7, Matt Latta became another of the weekend's multi-time winners when he claimed the checkers for the fourth time this season despite missing three events. Latta, who started on the front row, survived a rash of early race cautions to roll to the victory over Kyle Zimmerman, Breyton Santee, Darrell Bossard, Chad Sines and Joe Long. Another night of five division racing is on tap this Friday at Raceway 7.
 
Another first-time winner graced victory lane on Saturday night at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway as Garret Paugh turned in a strong performance to best an 18-car field in Saturday night's RUSH Late Model feature. Paugh, of Elkins West Virginia saw Ryan Frazee lead the first part of the 20-lap feature and ultimately take the lead on lap 16. In the closing laps, Paugh was chased by Michael Duritsky, Jr. and Frazee, both regulars on the RUSH Late Model Tour, but was able to hold off all comers for his first ever trip to victory lane at the "Monster Half-Mile". Duritsky finished runner-up with Frazee, Nico Dabecco and Tommy Schirnhofer, Jr. making up the top five.
 
In the companion RUSH Sprint Car feature, Gibsonia Pennsylvania's Zach Morrow picked up his first win of 2019 and first ever at PPMS. Bradley Blackshear and Jeremy Weaver turned in their best PPMS performances in second and third as Brian Woodhall and Brandon Hawkins completed the top five.
 
The eyes of the RUSH world will be on PPMS this Saturday night when the RUSH Late Model Touring Series presents their richest race in its history. The "Jook George Steel City Classic" will pay a astounding $10,010 to-win and the possibility exists for one driver to win well over $11,600!
 
Saturday night at Central New York's Fulton Speedway Sean Beardsley would set the early quick pace in the 20-lap RUSH Late Model feature while racing behind him was two and three-wide from the drop of the green. But 18 laps later it was Chad Homan, who had worked his way through the field to take first, and would hold off all challenges for his fifth Fulton victory of the 2019 campaign and second straight. Sean Beardsley held on for second for his season's best run with Kyle Sopaz, Chris Fleming and Kevan Cook finishing third through fifth. More racing action this Saturday at Fulton including a $1,000-to-win feature event for the RUSH Late Models.
 
Saturday night at Batavia, New York's Genesee Speedway Doug Ricotta and J.J. Mazur looked like the cars to beat in the RUSH Late Model feature, but it was fifth starting Bill Holmes who would work his way forward and take the lead from Ricotta with just three laps to go for his second straight win. Ricotta held on for second with JJ Mazur, Kyle Murray and Jon Rivers making the top five. Just three point races remain at Genesee with at tight battle on top as Holmes moves to within two points of Mazur. With the RUSH Late Models off this Saturday, the season championship battle resumes on August 17.
 
A very happy birthday was in store for 61-year-old Scott Gurdak on Saturday night at Busti, New York's Stateline Speedway as he took home the checkers in the RUSH Late Model feature event on Saturday night. Gurdak used his front row starting spot to ward off the competition and stay ahead of a series of early race cautions to grab the checkered flag over the likes of Max Blair, Jason Genco, Matt Sipes and Andy Boozel, who completed the top five. Twenty-three cars were on hand as Stateline has had at least 20 at all eight events this season with an average of nearly 25 per night.
 
Gurdak was an early leader earlier in the evening in the RUSH Pro Mod feature event, but that lead would be short-lived as Dennis Lunger, Jr. earned his way to victory lane for the fifth time this season and second straight at Stateline. Lunger was followed by Adam Ashcroft, Gurdak, Chad Carlson and Matt Harvey. Lunger and Carlson scored the heats. Stateline is off this Saturday night, but will return with a regular "Six-Pack Racing" program on August 17.
 
Matt Hill continued his dominance at Delaware International Speedway on Saturday night. Hill took his third straight win and sixth overall of the season. Tyler Reed, Sparky White, Joe Warren and Derek Magee were second through fifth. A full night of racing is on tap again this Saturday at DIS.
 
Saturday night at New York's Woodhull Raceway, Jason Knowles made his way from his seventh starting position on the grid to take the victory in the RUSH Late Model feature event. It was Knowles' second win of the season, but first since opening night back on May 4. Kurt Stebbins, John Haggerty, Steve LeBarron and Zach Wiech were second through fifth. A full night of racing is on the card this Saturday night at Woodhull Raceway.
 
Rain washed out the RUSH Late Model feature last Saturday night at Virginia's Winchester Speedway. The RUSH Late Models will be off the next two Saturday nights then will return on August 24 for a full show plus the August 3 make-up.
 
The RUSH Sportsman Modified Touring Series will make three appearances at Hartford, Ohio's Sharon Speedway in 2019, and Saturday night was the first of those visits. Absent from weekly competition at Sharon since his win on June 8, Garrett Krummert showed up big on Saturday night, scoring the $600 Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Tour win. The win makes Krummert the third different winner on the Tour this season in as many events. Early leader Chas Wolbert was second. Jim Rasey came from the tail to get third over Sharon points leader Kole Holden. Eastern Pa. racer, Connor King, was fifth. Cameron Nastasi won the "Wheelman" Non-Winners presented by Ohio Intra Express and C&R Tire to become the fifth different winner in six races. Racing continues at Sharon Speedway this Saturday night.
 
On the RUSH Asphalt Late Model side at Jennerstown Speedway, it was Mike "Hollywood Hemminger taking the win. Teddy Gibala, Jarrod Barclay, Barry Awtey and Zane Ferrell made up the remainder of the top five.
 
In the RUSH Asphalt Modified division, RJ Dallape took the win over Anthony Aiello, Andrew Kostelnik, Pete Rech and Chris Brink.  The RUSH Asphalt Modifieds will race in an extended 50-lap feature this Saturday night. The RUSH Asphalt Street Stocks saw Casey Fleegle in victory lane with Rick Meehleib, Andrew Kostelnik, Jeremy Shaffer and Josh Coughenour in the top five.
 
On to Sunday, when Old Bradford Speedway raced on a beautiful evening that would see their championship chases come to a close. Returning to racing for the first time in six weeks, Kyle Murray finished fourth on Saturday night at Genesee then showed up at Bradford for the first time this season and scored his first victory of 2019 in the RUSH Late Model division. Brad Mesler was second ahead of 2019 champion Ward Schell, Damian Bidwell and Andy Michael.
 
An intense battle for the lead over several laps made for an exciting feature event in the RUSH Pro Mods. Nate Hartzell and Steve Dixon started on the front row and in the closing laps swapped the lead several times before Hartzell returned to victory lane for the first time since opening night and captured his first ever points title. Dixon, C.J. Irons, Critter Hemphill and Adam Peterson made up the top five. The post-season is underway at Bradford starting this Sunday when the RUSH Late Models are in action for the "Jim Byerly Memorial Race".
 
Dog Hollow Speedway hosted their second straight Sunday night show and the RUSH Late Models were featured for the "Mole Bassaro Memorial". Taking the $1,000 win was Michael Ott, who led the entire distance, over Joe Moyer, Bryan Benton, Collin Burke and Tim Snare, Jr. Dog Hollow will be off this weekend and then return back to their old Friday night slot on August 16.
 
It was the "All Canadian Championships" at Port Colborne, Ontario's Humberstone Speedway on Sunday night. Chad Homan copped the $800 win giving him a sweep of Sweeney Weekly Series events for the weekend. David Pangrazio and Sam Pennacchio, who started 12th and 13th respectively, were able to move to the front of the field; however, Homan who was able to hold them off for his second "All Canadian title". A one lap shootout decided the main event with Homan holding off Pangrazio and Pennacchio for his third Humberstone win of the season and ninth overall. Rob Pietz and Adam Ferri made up the top five. The RUSH Late Models return to action at Humberstone on August 18.
 
Max Blair continued his dominance at Eriez Speedway on Sunday night in the RUSH Late Model feature. Starting on the front row, Blair once again held off all challengers to score the win. Blair's win was no easy task as he had to beat some of the northern's best in the business including Jason Genco, Scott Gurdak, Andy Boozel, and Breyton Santee for the win. Blair has now won in seven of his eight starts at Eriez and has 13 wins overall in RUSH for 2019.

DEFENDING CHAMPION GARRETT KRUMMERT POWERS TO 1ST HOVIS RUSH SPORTSMAN MOD TOUR WIN OF 2019 IN 1ST OF 3 VISITS TO SHARON

(Hartford, OH)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sportsman Modified Series powered by Pace Performance was part the "Super Series" program on Saturday night at Sharon Speedway for the first of three appearances by the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series at the Hartford, Ohio 3/8-mile oval. Points race #2 of the 2019 season attracted 28 cars.


 
Making his first Sharon Speedway appearance since winning a Hovis Weekly Series event on June 8, defending Tour Champion, Garrett Krummert, captured the $600 feature win. Krummert emerged victorious after getting by Chas Wolbert on lap seven and held off Wolbert and Jim Rasey over the final laps of the 25-lap feature presented by C&R Tire. Krummert becomes the third different Hovis Touring Series winner of the season in as many races including the non-point 2018 make-up event at Sharon back on May 11. Krummert also received a Sunoco 5-Gallon Race Jug.
 
"I thought it was a heck of a race the first seven or eight laps with Chas (Wolbert) and when Tony (Tatgenhorst) was up there- hopefully the fans enjoyed it," expressed the 31-year-old Ellwood City, Pa. racer after his second career Tour victory. "The big-block (Modified) is actually a heck of a lot easier to drive than these things. There's a lot of good cars in this division so if you're off a bit, you can't make up with the motor. They're fun to drive and a lot of fun. I have to thank my wife and Jerry Schaffer, who couldn't be here for letting me do this. I also have to thank my mom and dad, my crew chief Ryan and his wife Amy, my other crew guy Jordan along with the fans and everyone for putting this deal on."    
 
Tony Tatgenhorst drove around Amelia Clay on the opening lap for the lead, while fourth starting Wolbert moved to second as Krummert and Rasey also got around Clay for third and fourth respectively. Last week's Sharon Weekly Series winner, Kole Holden, started eighth and cracked the top five on lap two when he dropped Clay back another spot. Wolbert and Tatgenhorst went at it for the lead racing side-by-side on laps four and five with Wolbert sneaking under to lead the fifth circuit.
 
Krummert moved to the top and drove around Tatgenhorst for second on lap six then made the winning pass one lap later on Wolbert driving around the leader off turn two, while sixth starting Rasey overtook Tatgenhorst for third. Three cautions slowed action with 12 laps scored with the final one seeing Tatgenhorst and Rasey making contact with Rasey then getting into Tatgenhorst sending Tatgenhorst spinning. Rasey was put to the tail.
 
That would move ninth starting Deems into third with Holden and Pat Adams in fourth and fifth. Back under green at the halfway point, it was a three-car race for the lead between Krummert, Wolbert and Deems. Wolbert pulled alongside Krummert on lap 15, but Krummert maintained his lead. Rasey meanwhile worked his way back into the top five by passing Connor King on lap 16.
 
Krummert pulled away on lap 17 and appeared to be on cruise control to the finish, but a spin by rookie Brandon Albert would bunch up the field for a four-lap dash to the finish. When racing resumed, Rasey made quite the move to pass both Deems and Holden for third as it was nearly three-wide for the lead in turn one, but Krummert would maintain the top spot. Krummert then quickly pulled away to take his fourth career win in the division at Sharon in the Jerry Schaffer Racing, Turn 4 Toilets-sponsored #10s by a comfortable 2.034 seconds.
 
Wolbert was second to maintain the Hovis Weekly Series points lead. "It was some pretty good racing," acknowledged the 29-year-old Warren, Ohio racer. "Garrett had that thing figured out in the middle. I could roll the bottom good, but I just didn't feel comfortable in the middle to run in there with him. I have to thank God because without him I wouldn't be here, all of my sponsors, the Sharon crew, and everyone out here."
 
Rasey was third for the second straight Tour race as he trails Krummert by six points in the standings. Holden edged out King for fourth place by 0.141 of a second and was chosen as the Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive of the Night". Holden, whose win last Saturday was his first at Sharon win since his 2017 championship season, overtook Rob Kristyak for the track points lead. After going sixth to first to win the last chance B main, King then charged from 19th to fifth in the feature to earn the $100 Precise Racing Products "Pedal Down" Hard Charger gift card.
 
After going ninth to third early on, Deems faded to sixth at the finish. Jacob Wolfe was seventh over Adams. Kyle started 22nd and made his way to ninth just missing out on the hard charger honors, but was selected as the Sherwood Wheels "Man of Steel" recipient. First year RUSH racer, Greg Porter, completed the top 10.
 
Rob Kristyak, who has five wins on the circuit, entered the night as the Tour and Sharon points leader, but suffered heavy damage in a heat race accident that ended his night. Kristyak was selected as the TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" recipient. Heat winners over the 28-car field were Wolbert, Deems, and Krummert, while King won the B main.
 
Cameron Nastasi became the fifth different winner in the six "Wheelman" Non-Winners races that have been contested at Sharon in the inaugural year presented by Ohio Intra Express and C&R Tire. The 21-year-old Hubbard, Ohio driver led all eight non-stop laps in his #615 and went unchallenged to the $75 victory by 1.873 seconds. Rookie Clayton Deems passed Porter on lap six to finish second for his best finish. Sixth starting Wolfe also got by Porter to finish third. Porter dropped to fourth ahead of Amelia Clay, who continues to lead the points.
 
The Hovis Tour will return to Sharon on Saturday, August 17 in another $600 to-win event as part of the sixth annual "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance with approximately $25,000 in valuable product giveaways for eligible racers. The Tour's third and final appearance at Sharon will be on September 20-21 for the annual "Apple Festival Nationals" with $800 to-win.

Michael Page 10th Different Southern All Star Winner In Talladega Governors Cup
 

 
RACE RECAP: SUMMERTOWN, TN--The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series presented by Max Fab made its second stop of the season at the Talladega Short Track for the 2nd Annual Governors Cup and Michael Page of Douglasville, GA., made it two in a row as he passed pole sitter Dallas Cooper on lap 17 then held off challenges from Ashton Winger and Jason Hiett to get the $10,000 first place check.
 

 
Page started third and then worked for 17 laps to get by Cooper who battled for the top spot for several laps with Page getting the advantage, then Winger took to the high side and got by Page for the top spot but then had to retire with mechanical problems, then Page’s third battle was with Hiett who ran him down and was on his tail till the caution came out.
 

 
On the ensuing restart Hiett and Riley Hickman both seemed to not want to give up the second spot and the two made contact with each other and then into the front stretch wall crashing s the rest of the field had nowhere to go and the big one at Talladega happened, knocking several cars out of contention.
 

 
Page then led the final nine laps to capture his 2nd Governors Cup with Aaron Ridley of Chatsworth, GA., finished in the second spot, third went to Dallas Cooper of Anniston, AL., fourth to Zach Leonhardi of Cartersville, GA., and fifth to Forrest Trent of Talbot, TN.
 

 
Austin Smith finished in the 6th spot, David Breazeale 7th, Eric Cooley 8th, Cruz Skinner 9th and Billy Franklin 10th.
 

 
RACE TIDBITS: Power problems caused a delay in the program as the power company had to called into service to take of the problem so then the  program was delayed as well as some transponder issues came up,  but after that was corrected program ran as fast as was possible.
 

 
Dillon Tidmore & Austin Horton battling for the top spot in heat race action got together with both cars spinning and forcing them to the B mains.
 

 
Talladega Short Track was very race as heat race action was top and bottom lane use and in the feature three wide action at time kept the fans excited and there were battles all throughout the field during the race.
 

 
First time starts with the series this year Aaron Ridley, Eric Cooley, Forrest Trent, Cruz Skinner, Michael Arnold, Sam Seawright, and Ryan King

Ashton Winger 9th Different Winner In Southern All Stars This Year
 


 
RACE RECAP: SUMMERTOWN, TN--The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series presented by Max Fab made its second stop of the season at the Thunderhill Raceway in Summertown, TN., and as in the previous visit the rain make its appearance and delayed the program for a couple of hours but for Ashton Winger of Senoia, GA., it was worth the wait as he took the lead on a restart from Dane Dacus and went on to get his first career Southern All Star win in the King of the Hill 40.  Winger was making 16th career start with the series that was worth $4,000.
 

 
The battle for spots two through five was the whole race as Dane Dacus, Josh Putnam, David Breazeale and Riley Hickman all put on a show for the  crowd as these four drivers battled top to bottom the fast ¼ mile with Dacus coming in second Putnam third, Breazeale fourth and Hickman fifth.
 

 
Christian Hanger finished in the 6th spot, Billy Franklin 7th, Scott Cook 8th, Ray McElhiney 9th and Austin Arnold 10th.
 

 
RACE TIDBITS: As usual for the series this season weather was a factor as showers were present during the afternoon and evening delaying the stat of the program 2 hours but with the work of Jason Walker and Ricky Spurgeon and all the crew at Thunderhill Raceway the show went on and the fans got to a very entertaining race.
 

 
The Southern All Stars have completed nine races this season and there have been nine different winners.

Spalding Dominates GetBioFuel.com 30 at Merritt Speedway


 

Lake City, MI (Saturday, August 10, 2019) - A full field of 23 DIRTcar UMP Modifieds rolled into Merritt Speedway Saturday night for a $3,000 to win affair with the American Ethanol Modified Tour Presented by Allstar Performance (AEmods).  A competitive class of drivers did their best to find YellowHose.com Victory Lane, but none could compete with Watervliet, Michigan’s Curt Spalding.


 

Spalding and Colin Thirlby led the field to the American Ethanol Green Flag, and it would be Thirlby who jumped out to the early race lead.  That was short lived though, as just four laps later, Spalding used the inside of the race track to muscle his way around a struggling Thirlby; Jeffery Erickson, Jr. also used the bottom of the raceway to slip by Thirlby on his march to the podium.


 

 A caution flew 10 laps in, setting up the first restart of the evening.  Spalding jumped back out to the uncontested lead, but the battle was strong within the podium, as Erickson, Thirlby and AEmods points leader Will Krup.  Krup worked his way to the inside of Thirlby on the restart, but the bottom line was clogged with Erickson, keeping all three under a tight blanket for a number of laps.  Erickson and Krup managed to run away with the battle for second, as Spalding continued to put lapped traffic between he and the pair. Inside of ten laps to go, heavy lapped traffic bottled up the battle for the second, and Erickson spun in the center of turns one and two.


 

Spalding survived another restart with just a handful of laps to go, as Krup settled into the second spot ahead of Thirlby.  The final three laps of the event though, needed three attempts; as Thirlby spun in turns three and four during the white flag lap.  On the first overtime restart, Spalding again jumped out into the lead, and looked to again have the win in his sights, but as he again crossed under the white flag, a two car spin in turn three drew the caution once more.  Once again, the American Ethanol Green Flag flew, and Spalding, as the story goes, quickly gapped Krup and David Mielke. Joe Rokos and Jacob Poel rounded out the top five.


 

The next event for the AEmods is Thursday, August 29th from I-96 Speedway, paired up with the Morton Buildings World of Outlaws Late Model Series.  Learn more about the AEmods by logging on to aemods.com. Find and follow the Tour on social media, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

chlenk Masters Merritt for Wood Tic Win


 

Lake City, MI (Sunday, August 4, 2019) - The American Ethanol Late Model Tour returned to Merritt Speedway for the second time in 2019 Friday and Saturday, joining in on the largest dirt late model race in the state of Michigan.  The 31st running of the Ed Vanduinen WoodTic was paired up with the 2nd Annual Dan Salay Memorial. The blockbuster race paid $10,000 to win, on top of $20 per lap to lead the event, along with many other contingencies and prizes.


 

The special event began on Friday with American Ethanol Qualifying.  Not only were drivers trying to set the overall fast time, but the fastest driver from each group would compete in a Fast Car Dash later in the evening.  Group Number One was paced by Travis Stemler who turned in a 14.337, over Dona Marcoullier’s 14.534, and Steve Hiliker’s 14.643. In Group Two, Chad Finley powered his brand new chassis to a 14.413, edging out Brandon Thirlby and his 14.445, and Isaac Wolfgang’s 14.792.  Group Number Three saw Rich Bell go to a 14.723 second lap time, however, right as he crossed the stripe, his engine expired, scratching him for the night. Rusty Schlenk set the pace behind him with a 14.922, and Eric Spangler turned in a 15.004. In the fourth and final group, defending Merritt Speedway Track Champion, Nick Kurtz qualified with a 14.927, besting Matt Shipley’s 14.991, and Andrew Terrill’s 15.191.  Stemler was awarded the Motul Motor Oil and Lubricants Fast Qualifier Award, and he joined Finley, Schlenk (who replaced Bell), and Kurtz in the Senior Insurance Solutions Fast Car Dash.


 

That was the first of three dash races for the night, Schlenk dominated the event, besting Kurtz by over two tenths of a second.  In the Dash for Cash races, Spangler and Josh Knoll went to victory lane.


 

In the heat races, no transfer spots were on the line, but a vital piece of the puzzle was up for grabs for the winner of the events; the top two finishers would redraw for starting spots in Saturday’s Odd/Even Features.  Marcoullier, Thirlby, Spangler and Kurtz were all heat race winners


 

Saturday, the pressure was turned up, as the Odd/Even features were the first on track action of the day.  The 26 lap contests helped set the starting line up for the 31st WoodTic, with the top 8 cars transferring to the show, while the top three redrew for the top six starting positions.  The importance of the races were very clear, as a number of cautions, and a few red flags for track clean-up plagued both races. The Odd race saw Schlenk continue to show his speed as he raced to the win by a comfortable margin over Marcoullier and Stemler.  In the Even race, Thirlby showed patience through the struggles of the race to pick up the win ahead of Finley and Kurtz.


 

The starting line-up was finalized after two last chance qualifiers, where the top two drivers from each were locked into the show.  One American Ethanol Points Provisional was awarded, along with five Merritt Speedway provisionals, meaning some 26 cars rolled off for the 74 lap main event.


 

In less than 20 minutes, history was made as a new driver wrote their name onto the list of WoodTic Winners.  Rusty Schlenk and Travis Stemler led the field to the American Ethanol Green Flag, and Schlenk took off as if he was shot out of a cannon.  Schlenk was never again challenged for the top spot, leading all 74 laps en route to his first career WoodTic Victory. Chad Finley avoided a late race scare when he made contact with a lapped car, nearly spinning to the infield.  He held on for a second place finish, some nine seconds behind Schlenk, ahead of Dona Marcoullier who was trying for another three-peat. The final driver on the lead lap was Kurtz who finished over 11 seconds off of Schlenk’s pace.  Only four drivers managed to stay on the lead lap during the race, an oddity that Schlenk accredited to improved track preparation.


 

The next event for the AELMT is a double-header weekend into the state of Illinois during Labor Day weekend.  Friday, August 30th the Tour makes its first ever trip to Farmer City Raceway, before a first time stop at Fairbury American Legion Speedway on Saturday, August 31st.

SWEENEY RUSH SPORTSMAN MODIFIEDS RETURN TO SHARON SATURDAY FOR 2ND OF 3 HOVIS TOUR EVENTS; "MANUFACTURERS NIGHT" PRESENTED BY MSD TO AWARD $23,000 IN PRODUCTS

(Hartford, OH)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sportsman Modified Series powered by Pace Performance will return to Sharon Speedway this Saturday night (August 17) for the second of three Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring events at the Hartford, Ohio facility during their 90th anniversary season. In addition, it's the popular "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance with $23,000 of product giveaways! Race time is 7 p.m.

 
While $600 will go to the feature winner on Saturday night, more importantly it's the sixth annual "Manufactures Night" presented by MSD. There are currently 44 product packages valued at a minimum $300 up to the grand prize of $1,420 that will be given away with several drivers winning multiple packages! While all legal racers are eligible to compete in the night's racing program, only drivers/cars that have not competed in a non RUSH-sanctioned Sportsman/602 Crate Modified event that conflicted with a RUSH-sanctioned Sportsman Modified event during the 2019 season will be eligible for the product giveaways.
 
Saturday's product giveaways total a record $23,000! "Manufacturers Night" has grown each year with the following giveaway values: $4,600 (2014), $11,000 (2015), $17,000 (2016), $19,000 (2017), and $20,000 (2018).
 
The grand prize on Saturday night has once again been posted by TBM Brakes, which is two F1 Tornado Calipers and two F3 Tornado Calipers along with three bottles of TBM Brake Fluid valued at $1,420.  MSD and its parent company, Holley, are providing over $3,000 in giveaways on Saturday night! Other major prizes include a Yamaha pressure washer from Alternative Power Sources ($790) and a Lincoln Electric Power Mig 140C welder and utility cart ($700). New marketing partner Trailer-Alarms.com has provided a PTS-2 trailer alarm system and a Hasp Plus trailer lock valued at $685. Classic Ink has posted two apparel packages valued at $600 each.
 
Other contributors include Art's Radiator, Bicknell Racing Products, Big Daddy's Speed Center, Bilstein Shocks, Dirt Defender, FK Rod Ends, Frankland Racing Supply, Hoosier Tire, Ingram Engines, Jones Racing Products, Landrum Performance Springs, Precise Racing Products, Race 1, Racing Electronics, Russ King Racing, Schoenfeld Headers, Sherwood Wheels, Sunoco Race Fuels/Insinger Performance, Wedge Motorsports, and Wrisco Industries. (See complete list below.)
 
"We cannot thank all of our great marketing partners and contributors of our Manufacturers Nights enough," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "It's amazing to see the growth of these nights. To go from $4,600 in our inaugural year and to see that number increase every single year to Saturday night's total of $23,000 speaks so highly of our Series, racers, and sanctioned speedways. While every eligible racer will receive one product package worth a minimum of $300, approximately half will leave two prizes and at the very minimum $600! For the season, over $43,000 in championship point funds and contingencies have been posted!"
 
The 2019 season actually got started with the 2018 "Apple Festival Nationals" make-up event. The non-point Tour event saw a total of 36 cars compete and was won by Chas Wolbert. The $800 victory was Wolbert's all-time leading fourth career Tour win.
 
Due to some rainouts and another event change, only two point events have been completed for the Tour. On July 11 at the nearby Trumbull County Fairground's Expo Speedway, Rob Kristyak captured a thriller for his first career Tour win, also worth $800, then defending champion, Garrett Krummert, topped a 28-car field at Sharon on August 3 in a $600 to-win event presented by C&R Tire. Krummert has a six-point lead on Jim Rasey, who finished third at both Expo Speedway and Sharon in the Tour events. Wolbert is third in Tour points over Kole Holden and Greg Porter.
 
Wolbert is also fresh off a Hovis Weekly Series win last Saturday night as that victory was his third of the season, which is tops at Sharon amongst all classes in 2019, but more importantly was Wolbert's 12th of his career at Sharon, which is now tops all-time for the sixth year division. Wolbert also leads the $3,000 to-win Weekly Series standings.
 
Kole Holden, who ended a two-year winless drought on July 27 with his first victory since his 2017 championship season, leads Sharon's points as he closes in on another championship.
 
At the end of the night on Saturday, the "Wheelman" Non-Winners race presented by Ohio Intra Express and C&R Tire will take place. To date there have been five different winners in seven races as only David Kalb, Jr. and Tony Tatgenhorst have repeated. One-time winner, Cameron Nastasi, has a 12-point lead on Amelia Clay with Tatgenhorst, Jordan, and Jacob Wolfe completing the top five.
 
The Tour will return to Sharon on September 20-21 for the annual "Apple Festival Nationals" on September 20-21 for $800 to-win. Remaining Tour events include the "Betsy Kriegisch Memorial" at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway October 4-5 paying a minimum of $1,000 followed by the "Steel City Stampede" at Lernerville Speedway on October 18-19 paying $800 to-win.
 
Precise Racing Products will award a $100 gift card for the "Pedal Down" Hard Charger that passes the most cars in the feature.  The TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" will award three bottles of Xtreme6 Racing Brake Fluid valued at approximately $45 along with a certificate for a discount off any TBM Brakes purchase.
 
Officials will also determine the new Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive" to the driver that best defended his position throughout the night, and will receive a $40 product package at each event.  The award could go to a driver holding off another for the final heat race or B main transfer position, a driver denying a hard charging racer a feature win, a move to stay on the lead lap before a caution, or any such deserving move. 
 
RUSH Sportsman Mod Officials will determine the Sherwood Racing Wheels "Man of Steel" award winner as one that bounced back from an earlier mishap to finish the event strongly.  The selected driver will receive a certificate for a free Sherwood Racing Wheel. The feature winner will also receive a Sunoco 5-Gallon Race Jug.

RICHEST RACE IN RUSH HISTORY COMING TO PITTSBURGH SATURDAY; "JOOK GEORGE STEEL CITY CLASSIC" PRESENTED BY ZARIN TO PAY A MINIMUM $10,010 TO-WIN, $500 TO-START FOR SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR; $1000 BONUS IF WINNER CONTRIBUTED TO THE EVENT

(Imperial, PA)...This Saturday night (August 10), Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway will host the richest event in the history of RUSH and the richest crate engine event ever run in the Northeast. The "Jook George Steel City Classic" presented by Zarin Truck & Automotive and coordinated by Branden Lockwich will pay a record $10,010 to-win and a minimum $500 to-start for the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series! In addition, if the winner financially contributed to the event, he or she will receive a $1,000 bonus compliments of Miley Motor Sports and Lockwich!  Warm-ups being at 6 p.m. on Saturday night. The event carries a rain date of August 11 with one hour earlier starting times although clear conditions are forecasted for Saturday.

 
Starting in 2015, Lockwich took up the effort to make the "Jook George Steel City Classic" the biggest race in the tri-state area for the RUSH Late Models.  The event has grown in stature every year.  In 2017, the event was under the Sweeney Tour banner for the first time and drew 43 cars with Mike Pegher, Jr. capturing the $4,010 win.  Last year, Jacob Hawkins scored the event's richest payday, worth $5,010, that attracted an event record 51 cars.
 
Thanks to Zarin Truck & Automotive coming aboard along with both the George Family and Miley Motor Sports increasing their contributions even more, and so many others stepping up to make this an unbelievable payout of what is expected to be over $42,000 for just a one-day show! The entire purse as of August 6 is posted below, and will still increase.
 
"On behalf of the Jook George family, we wanted to do something extra special this year since it's the 30th anniversary for what used to be called the 'Fall Classic' at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway," expressed Dana George.  "Jook and his #10 race team looked forward to this race every year so we have contributed additional funds so that the first place prize money will be a grand total of  $10,010!  Good luck to all of the competitors in making this a race to remember!"
 
Miley Motor Sports and Lockwich then came up with the idea to award the 50-lap feature winner an additional $1,000 bonus if he financially contributed to the event. Any driver that still would like to contribute a minimum of $50 to expand the purse and be eligible for the bonus can contact Branden on Facebook or at 412-639-3723.  
 
The fastest overall in "Shock the Clock" qualifying will receive $200 with $100 from FK Rod Ends and another $100 "In loving memory of Tanya Lee Flinner from John, Taylor, and Pap Flinner". FK Rod Ends heat races will pay $25 to-win. The "John Beatty Memorial" Dash will be run to determine the beginning of the feature line-up that will pay a record $404 to-win with $100 for second, $50 for third, and $25 for fourth through sixth!
The Zarin Truck & Auto "$500 Club" drawings will take place during the drivers meeting. The top 15 in PPMS track points will be eligible to win the five $100 drawings. The possibility exists for one driver to leave Pittsburgh on August 10 with $11,739 in earnings!
 
"Miley Motor Sports is ecstatic about the 30th edition of the RUSH Dirt Late Model Series 'Jook George Classic', which is set up to be the biggest and best ever to honor our great friend of racing, Jook George," expressed PPMS promoter Matt Miley.  "We can't thank Brandon, the RUSH Team, and all who have contributed enough.  It's a win, win, win, win- racers, fans, sponsors, and the Speedway."  
 
"This is the type of thing that energizes Miley Motor Sports to keep Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway alive," continued Miley.  "It's been a long ride, 31 consecutive seasons!  Age and what comes with it take a toll on us.  We simply can't do everything ourselves.  Younger folks who love the sport stepping up and making some of our best events is unbelievably refreshing.  It energizes an old ownership team.  A very sincere Thank You from all of us at Miley Motor Sports!"
 
"It's really amazing how this event has grown and how so many people have gotten behind it to make this all possible," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Branden has led the efforts of transforming this from a special weekly event to a record breaking major Touring Series show. We can't thank the George Family, Miley Motor Sports, Branden and so many others for their amazing contributions and allow us to present this as RUSH Late Model Touring Series event with it now being the second $10,000+ to win show of the season. To think that one driver has the ability to win well over $11,000 is pretty incredible."
 
Defending Series Champion, Jeremy Wonderling, leads the Sweeney Tour to Pittsburgh. After a pair of fourth place finishes in last year's Tour events at PPMS, Wonderling was leading the feature on July 20 during "Manufacturers Night" only to suffer engine woes that shrunk his lead over Michael Duritsky, Jr. to 28.
 
Duritsky already has a win this year at PPMS in Sweeney Weekly Series competition and finished sixth on July 20.  Kyle Lukon, who owns 35 career wins at PPMS including the July 20 win, is third in points with Braeden Dillinger and Ryan Frazee rounding out the top five.  Logan Zarin, Bill Kessler, Jason Genco, Max Blair, Kyle Murray, Brian Knowles, and Sam Pennacchio complete the top 12 points paying positions. 
 
The Sweeney Tour has completed 12 events this season with Blair leading the way with five victories.  Wonderling won his three races in consecutive events in New York.  Charlie Sandercock swept the "Quebec Invasion" events at Autodrome Granby and Le RPM Speedway. Logan Roberson won the Winchester portion of the "Battle of the Bay" Speedweek presented by Wehrs Machine, and Lukon captured his first Tour victory in six years at the last event. 
 
Pittsburgh meanwhile has had seven different winners in eight events to date in 2019 with John Mollick being the only repeat winner. Past PPMS Sweeney RUSH Tour winners include Ryan Montgomery (3), Daryl Charlier (2), Lukon (2), Colton Flinner, Mollick, Mike Pegher, Jr., and Jacob Hawkins.  The Tour will return to PPMS for the "Bill Hendren Memorial" on October 4-5 paying a minimum of $4,000 to-win.
 
Precise Racing Products will award a $100 gift card for the "Pedal Down" Hard Charger that passes the most cars in the feature.  The TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" will award three bottles of Xtreme6 Racing Brake Fluid valued at approximately $45 along with a certificate for a discount off any TBM Brakes purchase.  RUSH Late Model Series Officials will also determine the Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive" to the driver that best defended his position throughout the event, and will receive a $40 product package.  The feature winner will receive a Sunoco 5-Gallon Race Jug.  Ontime Body & Graphic's "Spoiler Alert" will award a $150 spoiler to the 13th place finisher on Saturday.

William Thomas "Jook" George had a brief driving career himself, but as he turned to car owner he chose and had for most of his racing career the #10 and that was in honor of his racing hero, Lou Blaney, who drove his car on a couple occasions.  Other highlights of his career was being nominated as the Sportsman of the Year at PPMS, being nominated into the Pittsburgh Circle Track Hall of Fame, winning the track championship at PPMS in 1990 with John Beatty behind the wheel, and winning the Fall Classic in 1993 with Bill Yakin, also at PPMS.  His most dominant stretch as a car owner came in the late '70s when Earl Teeters was his driver.

 
Starting in 2015, Lockwich took up the effort to make the "Jook George Steel City Classic" the biggest race in the tri-state area for the RUSH Late Models.  The event has grown in stature every year.  In 2017, the event was under the Sweeney Tour banner for the first time and drew 43 cars with Mike Pegher, Jr. capturing the $4,010 win.  Last year, Jacob Hawkins scored the event's richest payday, worth $5,010, that attracted an event record 51 cars.
 
Back on May 29, Lockwich made the announcement that with Zarin Truck & Auto coming on board as the presenting sponsor and other contribution increases that the event would pay a record $6,010 to-win with the goal of $7,510. Since that announcement, both the George Family and Miley Motor Sports have increased their contributions toward the event purse even more to guarantee that the 30th annual winner of the 50-lap feature will pocket $10,010 to-win and $450 just to start this one-day event! The non-qualifier race will pay a minimum of $300 to-win, $155 to-start.
 
"On behalf of the Jook George family, we wanted to do something extra special this year since it's the 30th anniversary for what used to be called the 'Fall Classic' at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway," expressed Dana George.  "Jook and his #10 race team looked forward to this race every year so we have contributed additional funds so that the first place prize money will be a grand total of  $10,010!  Good luck to all of the competitors in making this a race to remember!"
 
Originally, a $1,000 bonus was going to be posted if the event winner competed in both the "Herb Scott Memorial" and "Red Miley Rumble", but with the postponement of the "Herb Scott Memorial" to last Saturday night and the "Red Miley Rumble" getting postponed until September 7, that $1,000 bonus will now be up for grabs if the "Jook George Steel City Classic" winner contributed to the event.
 
In addition, anyone who sponsors a lap to help build the purse will receive an entry into the drawing for 10 pit and 10 grandstand passes compliments of Miley Motorsports. Deadline to contribute to the event is August 3. All contribution can be sent to Branden Lockwich at 200 Pine Valley Drive, Imperial, PA 15126 or he can be reached at 412-639-3723.  
 
In addition to the normal $100 FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock" Qualifying and $25 to-win heat races, the "John Beatty Memorial" Dash will be run to determine the beginning of the feature line-up that will pay a record $404 to-win thanks to Matt Shufstall! The possibility exists for one driver to leave Pittsburgh on August 10 with $11,529 in earnings!

1ST DOG HOLLOW VICTORY IN 9 YEARS FOR SNARE IN SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODELS; CAREER 1ST AT ERIEZ FOR BOSSARD WHILE FLINNER & HOLMES TAKE 1ST WINS OF 2019 ALSO IN LM; MOLLICK CAPTURES 1ST RUSH SPRINT VICTORY; HOLDEN ENDS WINLESS DROUGHT IN RUSH MODS

(Pulaski, PA)...Finally, a fabulous weekend across the landscape of the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance family of speedways this past weekend as the sweltering heat of the previous week was gone, but the racing action remained hot. Several drivers scored their first wins of 2019 and in fact, ended long winless droughts.

 
Racing kicked off Friday night at Maryland's Potomac Speedway where Dale Hollidge used his pole starting position to cover the field flag-to-flag in the 25 lap RUSH Late Model feature event. Hollidge, who scored his third victory of the season commented on the win in victory lane. "This is such a tough class and wins are hard to come by. We've been testing some stuff with this car and it ran pretty good tonight." Division point leader Darren Alvey pulled in second with Ben Bowie, Jeremy Pilkerton, and Megan Mann making up the top five. Racing continues this Friday at Potomac with a double points night for all divisions on tap.
 
Dave Airgood, Jr., used his front row starting spot to propel him to victory Friday night at Conneaut, Ohio's Raceway 7. Airgood controlled the bulk of the event, enjoying a 0.694 second lead over runner up Matt Latta. By the time the checkered flag flew, Latta had closed the gap to half that, but simply couldn't track down Airgood, who won for the second consecutive week. Following the pair across the line were Darrell Bossard, Breyton Santee and Chad Sines. More five division racing coming up this Friday at Raceway 7.
 
Saturday night at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, once again two RUSH divisions converged on "Dirt's Monster Half Mile." John Mollick was pulling double duty and he was the class of the field RUSH Sprint Car field. Mollick, of Toronto, Ohio is a regular and past champion in the weekly RUSH Late Models at PPMS, but this was his first time taking a checkered flag in a Sprint. Mollick was followed by Zach Morrow, Brian Woodhall, Jeremy Weaver and Brandon Hawkins.
 
In RUSH Late Model action, Super Late Model standout Colton Flinner, fresh off his podium finish at the Herb Scott Memorial RUSH Late Model Touring event one week earlier, pulled off his first RUSH win of the season. And like every other Late Model driver in attendance, his attention was on the upcoming record setting Jook George Steel City Classic for the RUSH Touring Series on August 10. Flinner was chased across the line by Tour Series regulars Michael Duritsky, Jr., Logan Zarin, Ryan Frazee and last week's Tour winner Kyle Lukon. Both the RUSH Late Models and Sprints will be in action again this Saturday, but all eyes are on August 10 when the RUSH Touring Series returns for the record setting Jook George race paying a stunning $10,010 to the winner!
 
Saturday night at Winchester Speedway in Virginia, Logan Roberson picked up the win in the make-up feature event from the previous week. The victory was Roberson's fifth of the season at Winchester. Roberson was followed by Devin Brannon, Jakob Piper, Scott Sweeney, Jr. and Jennae Piper. In the scheduled feature for the RUSH Late Models, point leader Brannon and Roberson switched positions from the make-up race with Brannon coming across the line first for his season's second win followed by Roberson, Jakob Piper Mike Franklin and Jennae Piper again rounding out the top five. Another five-division show is on tap for this Saturday at Winchester.
After a week off for the severe heat in the East Coast/Chesapeake Bay area, Delaware International Speedway was back in action on Saturday night. In the RUSH Late Model event, cautions continued to breed cautions in the early going of the feature event, but pole sitter Matt Hill was able to stay ahead of it all only needing to hold off a challenge from runner up Sparky White. Hill led from the drop of the green followed by White, Derek Magee, Joe Warren and Tyler Reed. Racing continues at DIS on Saturday.
 
Batavia, New York's Genesee Speedway was another of the RUSH family of tracks running double features for the RUSH division. In the make-up feature event from July 4, Brad Mesler led all 25 laps for his first Genesee win of the season, which was worth $1,000, and was followed by Tour points leader Jeremy Wonderling, Doug Ricotta, Greg Mrzywka and Scott Waters.
 
In the regularly scheduled 25 lapper, Bill Holmes took his first victory of 2019 with Kurt Stebbins, Austyn Fugle, J.J. Mazur and Beamer Guzzardi rounding out the top five. A full slate of racing is on tap at Genesee Speedway this Saturday as they present the Terry Pangrazio Memorial.
 
A long dry spell came to an end on Saturday night at Sharon Speedway on Saturday night when Kole Holden notched his first victory in the RUSH Sportsman Modified division since his championship season in 2017. It was no easy task however, as Holden would have to hold off some of the best in the business in the class. Holden took over from Tony Tatgenhorst and held off Chas Wolbert for his fifth career Sharon win. Rob Kristyak, Josh Deems and Jacob Wolfe finished out the top five. In the companion non-winners race, it was Amelia Clay getting her first win to continue to lead the points.  
 
Sharon was to have hosted the Super DIRTcar Modifieds along with the RUSH Sprint cars on Tuesday, but afternoon and evening rains led to the cancelation of that event. The Hartford, Ohio oval gets back to action this Saturday when the RUSH Sportsman Modified Tour making its first of three appearances at the Hartford, Ohio oval.
 
It was $5 admission for "Fan Appreciation Night" at Busti, New York's Stateline Speedway on Saturday night, where Jason Genco picked up his first win of the 2019 season in the RUSH Late Model feature. Following Genco across the line were Scott Gurdak, Max Blair, Darrell Bossard and Bruce Hordusky, Jr.
 
In RUSH Pro Mod action, Dennis Lunger, Jr. took his fourth win of 2019 with Adam Ashcroft, Scott Gurdak, Chad Carlson, and Jarrod Silvis making up the top five. All six divisions will be in action again this Saturday at Stateline.
 
It was a topless night for the RUSH Late Models on Saturday night at New York's Fulton Speedway. "Futures Cup" racer, Max Hill, led at the start of the event while racing going on behind him included Chad Homan slowly moving forward. By mid-race, Homan was proving to be a man on a mission, charging to the lead and taking the victory by just over eight seconds for his fourth of the season! Hill was a career best second with Chris Fleming, Kyle Sopaz and Dale Caswell finishing third through fifth. Racing action continues this Saturday at Fulton with some fun that includes trailer races.
 
The RUSH Late Models also went "topless" on Sunday night at Ontario's Humberstone Speedway where Sam Pennacchio would use the outside line to take the lead off the start in the feature event. Rob Pietz would be able to take the lead away on lap four from Pennacchio. With Pietz out front, Chad Homan would be able to pass Pennacchio at the halfway mark for second as David Pangrazio raced from fourth place. Homan would reel in Pietz and would challenge for the lead, but Pietz would hang on to score his second feature win of the season. This Sunday, Humberstone will host the "All Canadian Championship," with qualifying beginning at 10 AM and action continuing all day and evening.
 
Dog Hollow Speedway has made the switch to Sunday nights with their six-division show, and the move seems to have paid off, at least for Tim Snare, Jr. Steve LeBarron and Snare brought the RUSH Late Models to the green flag with Snare taking the lead and setting the pace. His win was anything but easy as Joe Moyer pursued Snare first, but he suffered a flat and relinquished second to Jamey Swank. Swank pressured Snare for first, but Snare wanted to get back to victory lane, and he did just that for the first time in nine years at Dog Hollow! The official top five were Snare, Swank, Moyer, who came back to third, Colin Casale was fourth and Collin Burke was fifth. The Northern Cambria, Pa. oval will continue with its new Sunday night format this week with a $1,000-to-win race for the RUSH Late Models.
 
Finally, at Eriez Speedway near Erie Pennsylvania, Kyle Zimmerman and Darrell Bossard started on the front row of the RUSH Late Model feature event. Bossard would lead the distance, but not without some fierce battles behind him involving several drivers wanting to take a stab at the lead. Bossard would fend off a side-by-side battle with Max Blair on the backstretch with Jason Genco in tow. At the checkered flag, it was Bossard taking his first career Eriez win over Genco, Blair, Scott Gurdak, and Breyton Santee.
 
After a weekend of tractor pulls, New York's Woodhull Raceway returns to racing action this Saturday.
 
Monster Trucks were on the card at Jennerstown Speedway on Saturday, but the three RUSH Asphalt Series divisions will return this Saturday night.
 
Old Bradford Speedway had a built-in week off last Sunday and will return to racing action this Sunday night as just three more nights of action remain for the 2019 season.

Blockbuster Event Added to AELMT Schedule from Plymouth Speedway


 

Lake Odessa, MI (Monday, August 12, 2019) - During what has become somewhat of a “silly season” with postponements, cancellations, and suspensions of American Ethanol Late Model Tour (AELMT) racing, an exciting addition has been announced by Touring officials and officials with the Playground of Power, Plymouth Speedway. A massive event has been added to the schedule, and it all unfolds Thursday through Saturday, September 26th through the 28th.


 

Drivers with the AELMT will return to Plymouth Speedway for the first time since 2017, this time racing for a combined $17,000 to win during the Hoosier Autumn Classic.  An open practice will begin the weekend Thursday night for drivers to prepare for the unique format.


 

Friday will feature a pair of $2,500 to win, 25 lap qualifier events will headline the night. Qualifying Race Number One will be lined straight up from the heat race finish.  After those 25 laps are complete, lead lap cars will be completely inverted, and that will be the starting line-up for Qualifying Race Number Two. The top four point earners from the Qualifier Races will be locked in to the Hoosier Autumn Classic on Saturday.

 

The final night of the weekend will feature the second largest payout of the 2019 season, when $12,000 will be on the line during a 50 lap main event.  On top of the large payout, the action on the track will be exciting for another reason as well - the Hoosier Autumn Classic marks the final race of the 2019 season before the Championships from I-96 Speedway.


 

Fans and drivers alike can follow along and get prepared for the event by finding the Hoosier Autumn Classic on Facebook.  Learn more about Plymouth Speedway online at plymouthspeedway.net

Lake Odessa, MI (Thursday, August 8, 2019) -  A double-header weekend is on tap for the American Ethanol Modified Tour Presented by Allstar Performance (AEmods), and Saturday night features another increased pay out for the DIRTcar UMP Modified Tour. The AEmods roll into Merritt Speedway Saturday night for $3,000 to win the 30 lap main event.


 

The last time the AEmods were in action was the July 5th show from Merritt Speedway where David Mielke dominated the entire event. Mielke went on a roll winning every contest he entered under the American Ethanol banner, from the AEmods to the American Ethanol Late Model Tour. He bested Championship points leader Will Krup, and Merritt regular Collin Thirlby.  


 

In their last visit, Krup came up just short on his quest to find victory lane. Despite coming up short, Krup brings in a commanding points lead over Luke Hubbell, who trails by some 192 points. Garrett Rons sits third in the points, holding off a charge from Thirlby and John McClure.

 

Racing is slated to begin at 7:00 p.m. For more on Merritt Speedway go to merrittspeedwaymi.com and find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Tommie Bauer Memorial on Tap for AEmods


 

Lake Odessa, MI (Wednesday, August 7, 2019) - One of the largest events in DIRTcar UMP Modified racing is this Friday, August 9th at Mt. Pleasant Speedway. The 4th Annual Tommie Bauer Memorial Presented by YellowHose.com, boasts the largest purse in Mt. Pleasant Speedway history and also gives drivers the chance to write their name into the history books as an American Ethanol Modified Tour Presented by Allstar Performance (AEmods) winner.


 

The event, which is organized by AEmods driver Chad Bauer, memorializes Chad’s father, Tommie Bauer and has done so since 2016. The $2,519 payoff to win the event is just the tip of the iceberg in available prize money for the weekend. The overall purse for the event surpases the $22,000 mark, which includes a 22 car, 40-lap,  A-Main, paying $319 to start. Cash prizes fill up the event card, as drivers will battle for money nearly every time their cars touch the Speedway.


 

In addition to the Motul Motor Oil and Lubricants Fast Qualifier Award, a $519 prize awaits the driver who turns the fastest lap in qualifying. Then, the fastest six cars will duke it out for another chance at $519 for the win, $419 for second, $319 for third, $219 for fourth, $119 for fifth and $19 for sixth.  Something not seen very often in short track racing is payoff for heat races but that will be the case this weekend. Each heat race will pay $319 to win, dropping in $100 increments through 4th place. The top four drivers will also transfer directly into the Main Event.


 

The special event brings with it a special format, not typically used by the AEmods. Some drivers will be trying to race their way through the “alphabet soup”, something fans saw Collin Thirlby do in 2018. Drivers who find themselves in a C-Main, will need to finish in the top four to transfer to the B-Main, where they will again need to finish in the top four to go to the A-Main.


 

In 2018, Thirlby struggled during qualifying, and got caught up in an incident during his heat race, putting the then championship contender at the back of the C-Main. By the end of the 3rd Annual Tommie Bauer Memorial, Thirlby had passed nearly 30 cars, to finish in fourth position. While he didn’t win the race, his efforts nearly stole the show.


 

David Mielke, put on his own clinic in the 2018 edition, as the sole driver to use the outside of Mt. Pleasant Speedway to advance his position, coming from the 11th starting spot, to the lead by lap 20 of the 40 lap event. He held off Jeffery Erickson, Jr during a late race restart to collect the win, his second in event history (Chad Bauer won the 2017 race).


 

The 4th Annual Tommie Bauer Memorial Presented by YellowHose.com begins at 4:00 p.m. when the Pit Gates and Draw open. American Ethanol Qualifying begins at 6:45 p.m. and the American Ethanol Green Flag waves at 7:45 p.m.

$10,000 to win WoodTic Next for AELMT


 

Lake Odessa, MI (Tuesday, July 30, 2019) - After a brief summer vacation, the American Ethanol Late Model Tour (AELMT) is back to racing action this weekend for the 31st running of the WoodTic Presented by American Ethanol from Merritt Speedway and the Second Annual Dan Salay Memorial Race. Two events have joined together to create the largest DIRTcar UMP Late Model Race in Michigan this season, offering up $10,000 to the winner of the prestigious event, on top of lap money, bonuses and contingency awards.


 

The WoodTic event at Merritt Speedway first began back in 1989, when Frank Sedar took home the win and did so three years in a row, en route to becoming the winningest driver in WoodTic history, with eight triumphs. Only he and one other driver have accomplished the feat of winning the massive event three years in a row; the other driver has already cashed a large AELMT check this summer - Dona Marcoullier. Marcoullier won his first WoodTic event in 2008, going on a three year domination, winning in ‘08, ‘09 and 2010. He’s on the brink of that feat again.


 

Marcoullier has been a staple in the event over the last decade, winning six of the last 10 races. He would have obtained the threepeat if Chad Finley had not gone to victory lane for his sole WoodTic title in 2016. Marcoullier can accomplish the mark this weekend though, having won the past two titles; but another veteran competitor will be looking to foil his plans.


 

Eric Spangler, the six-time Merritt Speedway Track Champion, began his WoodTic win count in 2005. Since then, Spangler has found Victory Lane on two other occasions, 2012 and 2013. Some say, there is no replacement for experience and if that’s the case, Spangler will be one to watch this weekend. The Lake City, Michigan veteran driver will likely have the oldest WoodTic win among active drivers.


 

Fans can listen to free in-depth live audio coverage of the AELMT event including, behind the scenes, post-race and exclusive interviews, insight and analysis, and flag-to-flag coverage, by tuning in to the Motor City Racing Network Broadcast at race-monitor.com. AELMT fans can also monitor Live Timing & Scoring, powered by Motor City Racing Promotions, on the Race Monitor Mobile App. 


 

On Saturday, August 3rd, fans who cannot attend the event in person can log onto misportsnow.com to watch the live stream of the event.


 

This year’s WoodTic Presented by American Ethanol will feature a special format in correlation with the Dan Salay Memorial Event. Racing action will begin Friday with Hot Laps, Qualifying and Heat Races, while 26-lap Odd/Even Features and the 74-lap, $10,000, main event will take place on Saturday. Complete event details can be found here - Details for 31st WoodTic at Merritt Speedway [<LINK to presser]


 

Racing is slated to begin at 7:00 p.m. both nights with Mini Wedge action beginning at 3:00pm on Saturday. For more on Merritt Speedway go to merrittspeedwaymi.com and find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Tyler Carpenter uses dramatic pass to capture Butterball win

Tyler Carpenter scored his third win of the 2019 ULTIMATE season Saturday night at Richmond Raceway (KY), but this was more than just any win.  It was the richest race in the history of the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series, and the biggest win of Carpenter’s career.

Carpenter took the checkered flag in the 32nd Annual Paul “Butterball” Wooldridge Memorial Saturday, collecting the $20,059 payday.

“The Kamikaze Kid” took the lead from Tanner English on lap 18 of the 59-lap feature, survived a rash of restarts and pulled away for the win, which unofficially gives him the points lead in the ULTIMATE Mid-Ohio Valley Series after Ryan Montgomery’s mechanical issues on Friday prevented him from competing.

Insurance Issues force ULTIMATE Deep South Cancellation

The ULTIMATE Deep South has been forced to cancel the series opening event at Showtime Speedway on August 23, 2019. The cancellation is the result of being unable to verify the speedway’s insurance as is required through the series race agreement with the speedway.

“I am disappointed to be forced to cancel our event at Showtime; however, I cannot ask that our competitors participate, or fans attend, an ULTIMATE event in which I unable to verify the event has the proper insurance and that it is in place,” Series Director Brian Frazier said.

Mr. Frazier continued to say, “I am left no choice; I must cancel the event. The safety of our racers and fans comes first and that is secured through proper insurance and the requirements of insurance companies that oversee

Gregg Satterlee of Indiana, Pa., picked up the 40-lap Night of Power at Path Valley Speedway Park holding off a late race challenge from Jason Covert through lapped traffic to pick up a $3,000 victory.

Outside pole sitter Satterlee grabbed the lead at the drop of the green and set a torrid pace reaching lapped traffic by lap seven. The race was slowed by five cautions the worst of which when Jamie Lathroum spun in turn three collecting both Tyler Bare and Shaun Jones. As the race wound down Satterlee struggled to get past lapped cars leaving an opportunity for Covert to work his way into the race. Over the final ten laps Satterlee and Covert battled for the lead with Satterlee coming out on top.
