SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOURING SERIES RETURNS TO ACTION SUNDAY WITH $2,000 TO-WIN MARQUEE EVENT AT ERIEZ


(Erie, PA)...After more than two weeks off, the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series powered by Pace Performance will resume action this Sunday (July 30) with an appearance at Eriez Speedway. The 3/8-mile Erie, Pa. facility owned by the Rohrer Family was scheduled to host an event on May 28, but that was lost to rain shortly after the gates open. Sunday will be Tour race #9 of the season featuring a $2,000 to-win Marquee event. Warm-ups are slated for approximately 6 p.m.


The 2017 season marks the third consecutive year under the Sweeney RUSH Weekly Series banner for Eriez. Eriez has had strong car counts all season averaging 20 per night. In fact, their lowest car count has been 18. Eriez is coming off a season-high 26-car field last Friday night for the "I-79 Summer Shootout" that saw Chad Wright win his second feature in the past two events. Max Blair and Andy Boozel also have a pair of wins this season, while Jason Genco won the season opener.

The Sweeney Tour has made a pair of visits each of the past two seasons with the Blairs winning all four as Max has three wins and his father, Rob, one in a substitution role at the May 2016 event. The average car count for the four events has been just over 33 cars per night.

"We have to thank the Rohrer Family for their continued support of RUSH," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Obviously we were heartbroken with the passing of Bob Rohrer recently, who has done so much for not only our Series, but racing as a whole in the region. Eriez has been big proponent of RUSH, and this year are also bringing in our RUSH Sportsman Modifieds for the first time ever next Sunday. Last year Eriez averaged over 20 cars per weekly event and are right on track with the same number again this year. The Rohrers have done a tremendous job with the facility and racing surface, and continually receive rave reviews. We always enjoy our Touring Series events at Eriez as their tough weekly field always poses a challenge to our Touring stars and other invaders. The weather is also looking great!"

Bryce Davis leads the Sweeney Tour to Eriez on Sunday. Despite being very consistent with four straight top five finishes and just one finish worse than fifth all season, a ninth at Genesee, Davis holds just an eight-point lead over defending champion, John Waters. After struggling out of the box in the first three shows, Waters has come on strong reeling off five straight top five finishes including win at Genesee. Jeremy Wonderling is running the Tour for the first time ever and he's right in the championship hunt only four points behind Waters with two victories.

Brothers Jason and Brian Knowles are fourth and fifth in points ahead of J.J. Mazur, who gives New York drivers a clean sweep of the top six in points. West Virginia's Brian Swank is seventh ahead of his car driven by Mike Pegher, Jr., who has yet to finish worse than third in his five Tour starts despite still being winless. Completing the top 10 points paying positions are Jamie Wrightsman, Kyle Murray, Bruce Hordusky, Jr., and Tony White. Other winners this season include Russell King with two and Charlie Sandercock with one.
