PULASKI, Pa. – After all of the hard work during the offseason and tremendous support by the racers, speedways, and sponsors it’s finally showtime for the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series.
The inaugural weekend will be a huge one with events Friday and Saturday at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, Pa., and Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Md., respectively; all part of the “Battle Down the National Pike” with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
Aptly named “Battle Down the National Pike” due to both speedways’ proximity to National US Route 40, the weekend will mark history made both nights. Friday of course at Roaring Knob will be the first ever Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Touring Series event then Saturday will feature the Crate Late Models at the nationally-known and historic Hagerstown Speedway for the first time ever.
The weekend has drawn interest from racers literally all over the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic as teams are expected from Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Canada.
