More Than $30,000 in Contingency Prizes
to be distributed
PITTSBURGH, PA — Get ready for “A Rush Invasion” as Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway welcomes the stars of the Sweeney Chevrolet/Buick/GMC RUSH Touring Series this Saturday, August 31st. The 25 lap feature event will find the winner receiving a $1,500 payday and the Pro-Late Model competitors will also receive more than $30,000 in contingency prizes as part of the RUSH Manufacturers Night Bonanza. The evening’s racing action will also include a complete program for the Diehl of Robinson Super Late Models, the Sunoco Race Fuels Late Model Sportsman, Miley BP Carwash Hobby Stocks and the Imperial Heights Garage Young Guns.
“The racing here at PPMS has been great all season,” stated speedway owner Matt Miley. “Current Pro-Late points leader Kyle Lukon defeated the RUSH Touring Series regulars when they visited back in July so our PPMS regulars certainly have the equipment and skills needed to battle the top stars of the RUSH Series. We are also excited to host the Series’ Manufacturers Night as our weekly competitors will have the opportunity to share in many of the valuable contingency prizes that are being distributed.” The complete list of contingency prizes that will be distributed this Saturday night can be viewed by clicking on the RUSH logo below.
Colton Flinner is one of the hottest drivers on the Pro-Late Model circuit as he scored the victory at PPMS last Saturday. The Hampton Township resident also claimed the win here at PPMS on August 3rd as well as a victory at the Mercer Raceway Park on August 10 and would love to score his career first RUSH Touring Series win.
Kyle Lukon has scored five victories at the Imperial, PA oval thus far in 2013 and would like nothing more than to make it “two for two” in Touring Series action this weekend. Other PPMS Pro-Late winners this season include Mike Pegher, Jr., who is also the current RUSH Series Points Leader, Tommy Schirnhofer, Ron Hall, Laura Lukon, Josh Holtgraver, Nico Dabecco, Andrew Wylie and Joe Martin.
