(Pulaski, PA)…Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Series Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone
are thrilled to announce ARbodies has signed on to become one of the Series’ largest contingency sponsors! 


Not only will ARbodies carry the “Major Contingency Sponsor” title, but they have gone above and beyond to present the “Nosed Out” program in addition to offering certificates to each of the RUSH  weekly-sanctioned speedways.  Their total involvement with the Series involves thousands of dollars of product and certificates including 15 ARbodies nose kits (valued at $245 each) that will be awarded to RUSH racers throughout the 2013 season!


As presenting sponsor of the “Nosed Out” Contingency Program, the first driver that fails to qualify for the feature will receive a nose kit on eight selected Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC Touring events!  (Note: In the event a racer has already received an ARbodies nose kit the contingency would be awarded to the next non-qualified driver)!  The events include May 23 at McKean County Raceway, July 10 at Expo Speedway, July 20 at America’s Motorsports Park, August 18 at McKean, September 14 at Sharon Speedway, September 28 at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex, October 5 at Hesston Speedway and October 26 at Lernerville Speedway.


ARbodies will also award seven nose kits at the upcoming “Manufacturers Night” to be held at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway on Saturday, August 31.  Not only will the event include a $1,500 to-win Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC Touring Series race, but also award over $30,000 in product to the competing RUSH racers!


And finally, ARbodies will award a three $50 certificates to each of the Sweeney Chevrolet GMC RUSH-sanctioned speedways to the driver finishing last at three events selected by the speedway’s promoter.



“What ARbodies has stepped up and offered to our Series is incredible,” stated Emig.  “From a simple encounter at the RPM Promoter’s Workshop in Daytona Beach, Florida a couple months ago, to them willing to invest thousands of dollars in product and certificates is a testament to our Series, racers, and speedways.  These programs should really spread out their product and certificates to many, many racers throughout our region.”
