(Pulaski, PA)... Racing and controlling cost seems to be the perfect marriage for local and regional dirt drivers that have chosen to compete in the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance.  One of the most important pieces of the success of the RUSH program has to do with their rebuild, repair, and sealing program; one that is shared throughout the country with both the Sweeney RUSH Racing Series and sister series NeSmith. GM crate engines utilized in either of these programs are required to be properly sealed if the motor does not have the original GM sealing bolts.

SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL SERIES TO BEGIN ADDRESSING UNNECESSARY COSTS IN CRATE LATE MODEL RACING THROUGHOUT THE NORTHEAST; SUNOCO STANDARD 110 & SUNOCO “RUSH” PUMP GAS TO BE ONLY LEGAL FUELS FOR 2016

By Mike Leone | December 3, 2015

(Pulaski, PA)...In an effort to begin to curb the rising costs in Crate Late Model racing, the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Series powered by Pace Performance has announced that only Sunoco Standard Race Fuel (110 octane) and Sunoco “RUSH” Pump Gas (91 octane) will be legal for RUSH-sanctioned competition in 2016. 

Fuel was one of the topics discussed at the promoters meeting held in September.  Promoters in attendance, as well as those unable to attend that were personally contacted after the meeting, were unanimous in the mindset that the elimination of oxygenated fuels is in the best interest of the future of Crate Late Model racing throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.  The new rule will ban all oxygenated fuels as well as E85 from competition and require the well-known Sunoco Standard 110 Racing Fuel as the RUSH spec fuel along with Sunoco RUSH Pump Gas to accommodate competitors that prefer that option.  Both will be readily available throughout the entire network of RUSH-sanctioned speedways and specified Sunoco Race Fuels dealers.
