(Spring Run, PA)After a successful inaugural Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Late Model Weekly Series event on August 14 at Path Valley Speedway Park, track officials quickly made the announcement one month later that the RUSH Late Models will be added on a bi-weekly basis in 2016 at the central Pennsylvania -mile bullring.  In conjunction with that announcement, RUSH will conduct an Informational Meeting led by Series Director Vicki Emig, Competition Director Travis Harry, and Authorized Engine Rebuilder Mike Ingram at Path Valley at 11 AM on Saturday, November 7.


"Every time we sign on a new speedway, we host a general informational meeting on RUSH," explained Emig.  "We'll explain the aspects of the RUSH program as well as teching procedures and much more.  Even though many of the competitors at the August event were familiar with RUSH, we expect many new drivers to get involved now that Path Valley will be running the division frequently in 2016.  This will be a great opportunity for drivers to ask questions and get the proper answers."


The RUSH informational package will be distributed and drivers will have the opportunity to purchase their optional membership in advance.  The $125 weekly membership allows drivers to be eligible for the Sweeney Weekly Series, Pace Summer Chase, along with the new Track Pack Bonus Program for Path Valley racers in addition to the new Bilstein Bandits Championship as well as the "Futures Cup" for those eligible members.  For additional $100, drivers can join the Sweeney Touring Series.  Membership also grants racers an additional $100,000 of excess participant accident insurance.


The inaugural RUSH event at Path Valley was an exciting one with Virginia teen Logan Roberson picking up the $600 win over an impressive field of 16 cars from four different states (Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland) at the first ever Crate Late Model race at Path Valley and the furthest east a Crate Late Model race has been held in Pennsylvania.
