February 10, 2014               FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Pulaski, PA)…As each passing day means one day closer to the new racing season, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Series Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone are excited to announce ARbodies has renewed their involvement with the Series in 2014 and will again be one of the largest contingency sponsors! 


Not only will ARbodies carry the “Major Contingency Sponsor” title, but they have again 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 2014 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 at 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 eight Sweeney Tour events include May 30 Freedom Speedway,  June 8 Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway "Steel City 100", June 20-21 Potomac and Winchester Speedways "Mid-Atlantic Championship Classic", July 20 Humberstone Speedway "Canadian Late Model National Championship", August 31 Wayne County Speedway, September 13 Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway "Pittsburgher", and October 25 Lernerville Speedway “Steel City Stampede”.


ARbodies will also award seven nose kits at the 2014 “Manufacturers Night” to be held at McKean County Raceway on Saturday, August 30.  Not only will the event at the East Smethport, Pa. oval 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 stepped up and offered to our Series last year was incredible and we can't tell you how excited we are that they are returning this season,” stated Emig.  “From a simple encounter at the RPM Promoter’s Workshop in Daytona Beach, Florida last year, 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.  It was great to hear from ARbodies at PRI how much interest and return they received through their marketing efforts with us last year!”


"ARbodies is proud to again join forces with the RUSH Racing Series to promote our new dirt nose with the "Nosed Out" program,” expressed ARbodies General Manager Roy Dies, Jr.  “ARbodies has been a player in the dirt and asphalt late model markets since our inception in 1982; and we look forward to a long-standing partnership with the RUSH Racing Series.  This year we're proud to have our products at Precise Racing Products for the Northeast racers."
