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.

JOHN WATERS REDEEMS HIMSELF WINNING $2000 SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR FINALE AT LERNERVILLE OVER CHAMP BRYCE DAVIS; ANDY MICHAEL WINS 2018 ROCKET STAGE 2 XR1 CERTIFICATE

By Mike Leone October 13-14, 2017

(Sarver, PA)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance were part of the ninth annual "Steel City Stampede" this past weekend at Lernerville Speedway featuring the Sweeney RUSH Late Model Touring Series and the Bicknell Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modified Touring Series in their season finale events. Series regulars John Waters (Late Models) and Steve Slater (Modifieds) cashed in with feature victories on Saturday night. It was Sweeney Late Model Tour race #15 of the season, which attracted 39 drivers from all over Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, and West Virginia.

Congratulations to the 2017 Touring Series champions Bryce Davis (Late Models) and Kyle Martell (Modifieds). Also, Rocky Kugel earned the Bicknell Weekly Series Championship with the Modifieds pending an engine teardown by a protest from a fellow competitor and the confiscation of his MSD box. In addition, Andy Michael was the lucky recipient of the $7,995 gift certificate toward the purchase of a 2018 Rocket Stage 2 Rocket XR1 Late Model Chassis from eligible Pace Performance "Summer Chase" drivers.

Last season, Bryce Davis and John Waters battled down to the wire for the Sweeney Late Model Touring Series Championship with Waters overtaking Davis on the final night at Lernerville. This year, Davis had the championship wrapped up as the best Waters could do was come up one point shy. While last Saturday night at Pittsburgh was a disappointing end for Waters crashing out in the lead, Waters redeemed himself on Saturday night overtaking a smoking Russ King with five laps to go then ironically had to hold off Davis to win his third Sweeney Tour feature of 2017. The victory was worth $2,000 for Waters, who was also named as the Maxima Racing Oils "Maximum Performance" award winner.
