(Pulaski, PA)…The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series with its Crate Late Model and Crate 602 Sportsman Modified divisions is proud to endorse the new CrateInsider.com website and it's various social media outlets.  CrateInsider.com just recently launched and went live via the World Wide Web by developer Kate Dillon, a resident of North Carolina and director of the popular C.A.R.S. show.


CrateInsider.com was created to provide ONE resource to bring the Crate Racing Industry together in one place.  The site has a forum where members can ask technical questions that are answered by industry experts.  This site also has tech articles, a compilation of crate rules and racing schedules, series profiles, new product information, news, and an online store. 


The industry experts that provide written content and answer questions include two of our local authorized rebuilders in Brad Hibbard of Race-1 and Mike Ingram of Ingram Engines in addition to our good friend Steve Hendren of Hendren Racing Engines. 


"We are thrilled to have RUSH on our team," stated Dillon.  "Vicki (Emig) and Mike (Leone) run a great series that serves as a model in many ways—from the way they treat their sponsors and drivers to providing a seminar to train their tech inspectors, they are one series that is doing it right.  It is an honor that RUSH has chosen to be a part of Crate Insider."


The Sweeney RUSH Racing Series is proud to have the site's top banner shared with its sponsor Pace Performance.  RUSH also has a separate forum for each of its divisions. 


"I don't think people realize what a huge benefit CrateInsider.com is going to be to those of us who work on a daily basis in the crate racing world," stated RUSH Series Director Vicki Emig.  "It's actually going to be a one-stop shop so to speak for series such as RUSH, our racers,  authorized engine rebuilders, and manufacturers to gravitate to for important and reliable information concerning our industry.  Every year crate racing is gaining more and more participants and the timing is perfect for the creation of this website and social media outlets."


Besides the professional website, the CrateInsider.com Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CrateInsider is nearing 6,000 likes in less than four months!  The Twitter account is also active and you can follow it @CrateInsider.  CrateInsider's various social media tools has helped promote RUSH's news and information since its launch.
