MAX BLAIR PASSES ROSS ROBINSON WITH 5 TO GO TO WIN THE RICHEST CRATE LATE MODEL RACE IN THE HISTORY OF THE NORTHEAST; BLAIR'S $10,000 VICTORY COMES IN FRONT OF A HUGE CROWD FOR THE "BILL EMIG MEMORIAL" PRESENTED BY HOVIS FOR THE SWEENEY RUSH TOUR AT LERNERVILLE PART OF THE "FIRECRACKER 100"

By Mike Leone June 22, 2019

(Sarver, PA)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series presented by Pace Performance was part of the 13th annual "Firecracker 100" weekend at Lernerville Speedway with the Worlds of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Models for the first time ever. Preliminary action for RUSH was held on Friday with Saturday's "Bill Emig Memorial" presented by Hovis Auto & Truck Supply being the richest Crate Late Model event in the history of the Northeast! Huge crowds were on hand both nights and it's believed Saturday's crowd was the largest ever to watch a Crate Late Models race. The event attracted 53 RUSH Late Model drivers from seven different states plus Ontario, Canada.

Max Blair has been one of the top Crate Late Model racers in the nation for many years. And even though Blair focuses more on Super Late Model racing in recent years, Blair is always the driver to beat no matter where he goes. Blair will tell you Lernerville has never been one of his best tracks. On Saturday night, Blair didn't have the fastest car for the majority of the "Bill Emig Memorial" feature; in fact, had fell back to seventh during the second half of the 50-lap feature. But Blair benefitted from some others' misfortunes and then came on late to pass Ross Robinson with five laps to go to score the $10,000 victory! For Blair, it was his fourth Sweeney Tour victory in six starts this season boasting his earnings to over $23,000!

NOT EVEN A TWO & A HALF HOUR RAIN DELAY AT GENESEE CAN STOP JEREMY WONDERLING AS HE FLIES TO HIS 3RD STRAIGHT SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOURING SERIES WIN

By Mike Leone June 1, 2019

(Batavia, NY)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series presented by Pace Performance made its only appearance of the year to Genesee Speedway on Saturday night. Race #6 of the 2019 season saw 28 cars from all over New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Ontario, Canada make the trip to the Batavia, NY fairground track despite rain all around the region for much of the day that rained out most every other speedway. The four-division show started early and was pushed along fast as the RUSH Late Model feature was in the staging area when rain struck around 8 p.m. A big thank you goes out to third year promoter, Jim Johnson, who was determined to get the show in. After a solid hour of steady rain, Johnson and crew went to work and after 90 minutes of track prep, racing resumed on a fast track.

When you’re hot, you’re hot. In the last three races, defending champion Jeremy Wonderling has withstood a mid-race rain delay and torrid challenges by Jason Genco and Max Blair in lapped traffic to win at Stateline, out-dueled 2017 champion John Waters and held off a big charge by Kyle Lukon to win at Outlaw, and on Saturday night waited out a two and half hour rain delay and flew to victory on a fast Genesee track for his unprecedented third straight Sweeney Tour win. All three 30-lap $2,000 victories have come in Wonderling’s home state of New York. Wonderling has also received the Sunoco 5-Gallon Race Jug each night.
