(Pulaski, PA)...Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone are proud to announce Velocita-USA will not only return for an 11th consecutive year as a major marketing partner, but will also increase its participation with the Series for the upcoming season.  Not only will Velocita continue to award drivers suits, shoes and gloves at many of the Series' "Manufacturers Nights" presented by MSD Performance, but in 2024 will also award a custom Velocita-USA "Unlimited" suit to each of the 2024 Weekly Series Champions!


"We first met Velocita owner Brad Smith around 13 years ago down south," explained Emig.  "He was actually driving a Crate Late Model at Ocala Speedway in Florida and we got to know him personally through the years at various trade shows.  Back in 2014, Velocita started by awarding a suit to a RUSH Late Model and Sportsman Modified racer at our Manufacturers Nights.  As RUSH grew to additional divisions, Brad stepped up and awarded additional suits, driving shoes and gloves, certificates and more.  Strong long-term relationships like the one RUSH and Velocita has shared over the years are few and far between and it's certain one we are very proud of!"


Now for 2024, the Weekly Series Champions in each of the RUSH classes including the Late Models presented by City Chevrolet, Sportsman Modifieds, Sprint Cars, Pro Mods, and Stock Cars will receive a Velocita-USA full custom "Unlimited" drivers suit valued at over $1,100!  Any questions about discounts or sales, please contact Allison Gregg at 336-764-8502 ext 1 or [email protected].


"I cannot tell you how appreciative we are for Velocita's contributions to RUSH and I know our racers feel the same," added Emig.  "Each year, the Velocita suits are some of the most sought after products that are distributed at Manufacturers Nights, and now this will be a tremendous bonus for each of our champions.  It really makes me feel good when I see so many RUSH racers wearing Velocita suits; their support of our partners is key to having them move forward with us and this is a perfect example of just that!"
