PULASKI, Pa. – The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series powered by Pace Performance has set its schedule of events for this season.
The point fund for the series will nearly double this year, with the series champion earning $12,000. The season will begin on April 15-18 during Battle of the Bay Mid-Atlantic Speedweek.
Highlighting the 18-event schedule is the $10,000-to-win Bill Emig Memorial, which returns to Lernerville Speedway alongside the Firecracker 100. Also featured in the schedule include the Jook George Steel City Classic and Bill Hendren Memorial events at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway. Six other weekends have two or more complete shows minimizing travel for competitors.
“After coming off our richest touring slate which resulted in our highest average car count in history we’re looking forward to keeping the forward momentum going in 2020,” acknowledged Emig. “Last year, the schedule of events went to a different level and that translated into an average of more than 38 cars for our events, often exceeding 40 plus cars and over 50 on three different occasions. With that said, we felt it was time to substantially increase our point fund and look forward to our 2020 champion earning a record $12,000 with all other points paying positions increasing greatly. Our slate of substantial paying tour events combined with our richest ever tour point fund is definitely going to create an awesome situation for both RUSH fans and Crate Late Model racers throughout the region.”
Speedweek and the season get underway on April 15 at Delaware Int’l Speedway in Delmar, Del., followed by events at Georgetown (Del.) Speedway on April 16, Potomac Speedway in Mechanicsville, Md., on April 17 and Winchester (Va.) Speedway on April 18.
The series will also visit additional tracks in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio throughout the course of the season, with the season wrapping up at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway on Oct. 2-3.
