(Imperial, PA)…RUSH Racing Series directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone were informed today by NDRL management that the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Late Models will be added to the season opening event at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway on Thursday, April 10. The Sweeney RUSH Weekly Series event will utilize PPMS’ regular payoff and will be joined by the NDRL “Kings of Dirt” (Super) Late Models in a $10,000 to-win event along with the NDRL Modifieds.
So far two Sweeney RUSH Weekly Series events have completed in 2014 with Ben Bowie and Chad McClellan winning the March 21 and 22 Potomac and Winchester Speedway openers respectively. Potomac will host another event for RUSH this Friday, April 5, while Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex is scheduled to opener their season this Saturday, April 6.
John Imler and John Over are currently tied atop the standings for the $5,000 to-win Sweeney Weekly Series Championship that pays down 40 positions this season. The Thursday, April 10 event at PPMS will not only award these important points, but will begin the quest to be in the top 10 of the PPMS points to qualify for the Pace Performance “Summer Chase”, which begins on July 1. “Futures Cup” points will also be awarded for those eligible racers.
