September 26, 2022 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Edinburg, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants is proud to announce that the renowned Race Logic Chassis School will be making its first ever appearance in the North. The two-day seminar take place on Saturday and Sunday, January 28-29, 2023 at Gatherings Banquet & Event Center in Edinburg, Pa. and will also include a meet and greet on Friday night, January 27. Though the seminars will focus on Crate Late Model racing, racers from Super Late, Pro Mod/E-Mod, and Stock Car divisions are welcome to attend, as many of the topics discussed will also apply to their forms of racing.
The seminar will be led by southern Crate Late Model standout, Matt Henderson, a former CUSA World Champion as well as a winner of numerous Crate Late Model crown jewel events. Other instructors include Chip Vineyard of CVR Race Cars, engineer Robby Bilbrey of RPI Racing Suspensions, Dave Hammond of Hammond Motorsports, Steve Hendren of Hendren Racing Engines, and engineer Ben Baker of AFab. RUSH Late Model Touring Series point leader Logan Roberson has campaigned a CVR Race Car throughout the 2022 season. Kate Dillon of CrateInsider.com, the country's leading supplier of all crate engine needs, will also be in attendance.
"I was really excited when Matt contacted me about working with RUSH to bring the Race Logic Chassis School to the North for the first time ever," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Although it is billed as a Crate Late Model seminar, I hope racers that compete in other forms of Late Models, Pro Mod/E-Mods, and Stock Cars take advantage of this opportunity and attend. It's a stellar and very knowledgeable group of instructors that will be here over the three-day period, and we're thrilled to be able to bring this opportunity to our racers!"
Matt Henderson, who hails from Loudon, TN, started racing at age 14 and has raced for 20 years. Henderson went through every school he could find when he started; Dale McDowell/Ray Cook & Skip Arp/Freddy Smith. Henderson also had a lot of mentors along the way something that most donít have today. Henderson's goal is to shorten the learning curve for those coming up through the ranks and for the guys that race every week.
"The seminar is not a bunch of just basic and general information," explained Henderson. "Itís as advanced as it can be. We go through everything we think a racer needs to know. In person attendance also gets you a online version for free so you can review any and all info from the class year round so that if youíre working on front end geometry, you can go to the front end segment category and refresh before you get to it on your car. Itís the most advanced, full scope, dirt late model school out there; thereís not a close second. We know there is a huge bed of Crate Late Models that race under the RUSH banner and we're really looking forward to meeting and working with their drivers to enhance their programs."
The cost of the seminar is $399. All attendees will receive products or certificates valued at more than the cost of the seminar. In addition, all attendees will receive a free online version of the class that's categorized. Registration is open at https://www.racelogic.vip/courses/2023-crate-late-model-chassis-school.
