JEREMY WONDERLING SLAYS THE MONSTER TO CAPTURE HIS 1ST CAREER PITTSBURGH VICTORY IN THE "HERB SCOTT MEMORIAL" FOR THE PACE RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN'S TIRE/BORN2RUN LUBRICANTS TOURING SERIES; JUSTIN SHEA WINS #2 IN RUSH MODS

By Mike Leone July 3, 2021

(Imperial, PA)...The Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC took part in a doubleheader of action on Saturday night at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. The Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants RUSH Late Model Touring Series made their first of four visits during the 2021 season in their ninth event of the season, which saw Jeremy Wonderling win the "Herb Scott Memorial". Meanwhile, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds competed in their third Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series event of 2021 at PPMS with Justin Shea victorious. Jeremy Wonderling grew up racing on the bullrings in his home state of New York.

In 2017, Wonderling expanded his horizons hitting the road full-time with the RUSH Late Model Touring Series competing on tracks he had never seen before. That experience propelled him to his first championship in 2018, which set off a run of three straight titles. Through it all, one track Wonderling had never conquered was Pittsburgh. Wonderling has had numerous top five finishes at the "Monster Half-Mile" and two years ago was leading the "Herb Scott Memorial" before his engine expired. On Saturday night, Wonderling inherited the lead on lap six after mechanical woes ended Michael Norris' night and then kept Kyle Hardy at bay for the $2,000 victory- his third of the season in the Flynn's Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series.
