(Pulaski, PA)…As racing season quickly draws near, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Series Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone continue to work on a daily basis to add and secure quality programs and sponsorships to the Series.  The Series is proud to announce ARbodies has renewed their involvement with the Series as a Major Contingency Sponsor for the third straight year.


Not only will ARbodies carry the “Major Contingency Sponsor” title, but they have once again gone above and beyond to present the “Nosed Out” program in select Sweeney Tour events.  A total of 15 ARbodies nose kits (valued at $259.95 each) will be awarded to RUSH racers throughout the 2015 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 18 at Merrittville Speedway, June 7 at Eriez Speedway, June 21 at Tri-City Speedway, June 28 at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway, August 20 at McKean County Raceway, September 6 at Wayne County Speedway, September 12 at Sharon Speedway, and October 24 at Lernerville Speedway.


ARbodies will also award seven nose kits at the 2015 “Manufacturers Night” to be held at for the first time ever at Eriez Speedway on Sunday, July 26.  Not only will the event at the Erie, 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!


“We're so thankful companies like ARbodies steps up and offers programs such as these to our racers,” stated Emig.  “From a simple encounter at the RPM Promoter’s Workshop in Daytona Beach, Florida two years ago, to them willing to invest thousands of dollars each of the past three years in product is a testament to our Series, racers, and speedways.  Even though it's a heartbreaker to be the first driver to miss a touring event, these nose kits have become sought after prizes and a nice consolation prize.”


"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.  We're proud to have our products at Precise Racing Products for the Northeast racers for the second straight year."
