(Pulaski, PA)…Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone are thrilled to welcome on another new marketing partner for the 2014 season.  Velocita-USA has come on board as a Major Contingency Sponsor of both the RUSH Late Model and RUSH Sportsman Modified divisions.


Velocita-USA will give away a full custom designed drivers suit to a random winner at each division's "Manufacturers Night" along with 50% off discounts for five random drivers in 2014 points of both divisions, and a $500 certificate to one lucky driver in the top 10 of the “Futures Cup” points for the Late Models.


The RUSH Late Model "Manufacturers Night" is expected to exceed $30,000 in giveaways and will take place on Saturday, August 31 for the first time at McKean County Raceway in East Smethport, PA; meanwhile, the inaugural RUSH Sportsman Modified "Manufacturers Night" will be held on Saturday, September 6 at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, PA and will be presented by Bilstein Shock Absorbers. 


The additional certificates will be given away at the 2014 Awards Banquet in January.  The top 40 drivers in the Sweeney RUSH Late Model Weekly Series points will be eligible for the five 50% off certificates and the top 15 drivers in the Sweeney RUSH Sportsman Modified points will be eligible for the other five 50% off certificates!  And of course one of our teenage “Futures Cup” Late Model drivers will win a $500 certificate!     


"I cannot tell you how excited we are to have Velocita join us as a marketing partner," expressed Emig.  "We met owner Brad Smith a couple years ago down south and it's great that we can now begin a mutually beneficial relationship.  Brad is a Crate Late Model racer himself so he understands the importance of both looking good and staying safe.  These will be outstanding prizes for our Manufacturers Nights along with great certificates we can give out at our awards banquet in January to lucky drivers."
