FORMER BRP 360 STARS FITTINGLY PUT ON A SHOW IN “GARY MONTGOMERY MEMORIAL” AT OUTLAW WITH BRYCE DAVIS WINNING A FURIOUS BATTLE OVER JEREMY WONDERLING & WAYNE ROBERTSON FOR $2000 SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR WIN

By Mike Leone June 2, 2017

(Dundee, NY)..The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series powered by Pace Performance continued its northern swing on Friday night as Outlaw Speedway played host to the Series’ first ever visit for race #4 of the 2017 season. Friday night was the inaugural "Gary Montgomery Memorial". Montgomery passed away in November 2016. Montgomery's passion was his lifelong involvement in stock car racing. From spectator, driver, columnist, local track announcer to NASCAR radio and DIRT television commentator and track promoter, he participated in every aspect of the sport, resulting in lifelong friendships, within the auto racing community. Montgomery most recently promoted the BRP 360 Late Model Series, which has turned into a great stepping stone for many of the top New York RUSH Late Model racers today.

And it was only fitting that Montgomery’s best former racers went at it hard in the 30-lap feature. After a heartbreaking end for early leader Jason Knowles, Series standouts Bryce Davis, Jeremy Wonderling, and Wayne Robertson put on a show fans won’t soon forget. The trio battled three-wide for the lead with Davis and Wonderling trading slide jobs lap after lap, but Davis would get the last one in and pulled away in the final laps for his first win of 2017. Davis’ victory was worth $2,000 plus was selected as the Maxima Racing Oil “Maximum Performance” award winner.
