 MAX BLAIR OPENS “BATTLE OF THE BAY” PRESENTED BY PANCHO’S WITH DOMINATING SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR VICTORY OVER THE 46-CAR FIELD IN THE 1ST EVER RACE AT DELAWARE

By Mike Leone April 18, 2018

(Delmar, DE)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series powered by Pace Performance kicked off the 2018 season on Wednesday night in the first ever race at Delaware International Speedway, and in fact the first ever in the state of Delaware. It was night one of the four-night inaugural “Battle of the Bay” Mid-Atlantic Speedweek presented by Pancho’s Racing Products, which attracted 46 cars from five states (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York) along with Ontario, Canada. Special thanks to Elliott Farms for posting $600 in feature lap money rotating amongst the top five cars each feature lap.

Max Blair has won races from Canada to Florida, but had never raced, let alone won before, in the “First State”. That all changed on Wednesday night as Blair put on a dominating performance leading all but the first lap to claim the $2,000 season opening “Marquee” Tour event win at DIS. Blair, who also earned an additional $100 in lap money, now takes the early point lead in both the Sweeney Tour as well as the “Battle of the Bay” Speedweek.

RUSH'S BILSTEIN BANDIT $135 SEALED, SPEC SHOCKS: LEADING THE WAY IN PROVIDING EXCITING & COMPETITIVE RACING IN A COST-CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT

By Doug Kennedy October 18, 2017

(Pulaski, PA)...Throughout the years, it's no secret that the main objective of the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance that now spans throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Ontario, Canada has been to provide an exciting and affordable grassroots racing series for their racers. Staying focused on the word "affordable" has helped drive the success of RUSH, which in 2018 will encompass eight different divisions on both dirt and asphalt.

Many factors have been important players in RUSH's objective to control cost in their divisions; their stringent GM crate engine technical program, Hoosier spec tires, Sunoco spec fuels, and in many cases the $135 sealed, spec RUSH Bilstein Shocks.

The sealed, spec RUSH Bilstein Bandit Shock package is mandated in three of the Series divisions; Sportsman Modifieds, Pro/E-Mods, and now the Sprint Cars, and has found great success also in the Late Models and Pro Stocks, as well as all of the Series' asphalt divisions.
