PULASKI, Pa – Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Series Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone have announced that the 2014 Sweeney Weekly Series Championship will expand in 2014.
The top 40 drivers in 2014 points will receive point fund monies, up from 30 this past season with $200 going to the driver in 40th position. With the expansion to 40 positions, an increase in monies will also be added to positions 21-30.
Already this off-season, Potomac Speedway (Mechanicsville, Md.), Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Va.), Freedom Speedway (Delevan, N.Y.), and Humberstone Speedway (Port Colborne, Ontario) have come on board as weekly-sanctioned speedways for 2014, allowing their member racers the ability to compete for the Sweeney Weekly Series, Pace Performance Summer Chase and Futures Cup Championships.
“With the increased growth, we felt it was important to add into the Sweeney Weekly Series Championship,” said Emig. “We want the racers and speedways to know that as we grow so can our programs. Membership is still an option, but we want all of the returning member racers and all of the racers at the new speedways to continue to have incentive to join as the pot continues to grow so to speak.”
Discussions are underway with other speedways throughout the region. The 2014 Sweeney Tour schedule continues to come together and should be released in late January. Stay tuned in the coming days for an announcement on a major event to be held at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway in 2014.
