Sweeney RUSH Racers To Receive OVER $21,000 in Prizes During RUSH "Manufacturers Night” PRESENTED BY MSD On Saturday AT JENNERSTOWN; GRAND PRIZE A COMPLETE BODY KIT FROM ARBODIES

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

(August 2, 2017)  Competitors in the three racing divisions sanctioned by the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Asphalt Racing Series powered by Pace Performance at Jennerstown Speedway Complex will reap even more rewards of being aligned with the RUSH organization, this Saturday night, August 5.  During the intermission between events, all race teams using RUSH approved GM Crate Engines will be entered into a sweepstakes drawing for over $21,000 in performance parts, race car components, and manufacturer gift certificates.   Teams in the Martella's Pharmacies Late Models, Stoystown Auto Wreckers Modifieds, and J&J Truck Equipment Street Stocks will all have a chance to win one of nearly 60 prizes, to be awarded by random draw, to racers in competition Saturday night.

 

The 2017 season is the inaugural year for the partnership between Jennerstown Speedway Complex and the Sweeney RUSH series.   Thus, Saturday will be the first “Manufacturer’s Night” presented by MSD Performance held at Jennerstown.  The RUSH Series has conducted these nights each year for dirt track racing competitors, and in total for 2017, well in excess of $110,000 worth of prizes will be distributed to racers under the RUSH umbrella.   In game show-like fashion, the drivers will appear in front of the fans, after the heat races are completed Saturday, and draw for prizes, in a pre-determined order (also by random draw earlier in the night).  This gives spectators the chance to see the drivers up close, and share in the emotion of collecting valuable prizes, all contributed by sponsors of the RUSH Series.

 

“The relationship with RUSH has already provided many benefits to competitors and to Jennerstown’s racing program in this first year, and this ‘Manufacturer’s Night’ is just icing on the cake,” Promoter Mike Lysakowski summarized.  “We are eager to continue the relationship with RUSH because of the smart, consistent rules package that governs our three divisions of RUSH racing.  This $21,000 giveaway event is added value to our competitors, and a great opportunity to display to the fans just how committed the RUSH organization is, to making racing stronger, for both dirt track and asphalt track race teams.”

 

The prize values range from $165 to $650 with necessary racing components such as carburetors, brakes, suspension parts, steering wheels, and even tire and fuel vouchers.  All competing GM crate engine Late Model and Street Stock racers will be entered into the grand prize drawing for a complete body kit valued at over $2,000 compliments of ARbodies!  

 

"It's been tremendous how everyone has worked together so well since last fall to make the RUSH Asphalt Series a reality at Jennerstown this season," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig.  "From the owners and staff of Jennerstown to the racers to our Authorized Engine Rebuilders and all of our great marketing partners- we simply cannot thank everyone enough.  We're thrilled at where we're at with this program and proud to bring a Manufacturers Night to the asphalt side like we're done with our dirt divisions for many years.  We have six of these nights scheduled throughout our RUSH Racing Series and drivers will share in over $110,000 of valuable product for these nights in 2017!"
