Brewerton, NY– The SUNY Canton Sportsman have been invited to join the UNOH All-Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprints night at the Brewerton Speedway on July 18 at 7:30 p.m.
The SUNY Canton Sportsman Showdown promises to be a great show at “The D-Shaped Dirt Demon” and great supporting sponsors have rallied to make sure it is.
The 25-lap Showdown will build off the base $500-to-win, $40-to-start SUNY Canton Sportsman purse posted weekly at Fulton Speedway.
Ernie Kreis, of Ernie Kreis and Sons Heating Co., Inc. is kicking in big with $1,000 in extra prize money. Each of the top ten finishers will receive $100 from The Kreis’ $1,000 fund. Kreis is the grandfather of SUNY canton Sportsman standout Katelyn Kane.
Sportsman class sponsor Mike Perry, from SUNY Canton, is making sure every team that attends the SUNY Canton Sportsman Showdown goes home with money in their pockets by offering $50 to every team that attempts to qualify for the event.
Dennis Beaudette, from Industrial Tire of Central New York, is a big supporter of the SUNY Canton Sportsman class and has $2,000 earmarked for the SUNY Canton Sportsman Showdown. Qualifying races become much more important on this night as Beaudette’s bonus will be distributed to the top three finishers in each heat race – with $300 going to each heat winner, $200 to heat runner-ups, and $100 for third place finishers.
P&M Fabrication of Jordan has generously donated a variable speed tire grinding and siping machine valued at approximately $1,000 to one lucky entrant in the SUNY Canton Sportsman Showdown. The Showdown winner will draw one name from all drivers that attempt to qualify that night and that driver will drive home with that great reward.
The winner of the SUNY Canton Sportsman Showdown will also receive a guaranteed starting spot in the $1,000-to-win September 28, Outlaw Weekend Sportsman Championship at Fulton Speedway, while all drivers unable to qualify for the feature event will receive a complementary pit pass good for admission to the Friday night event.
Legal tires are American Racer sportsman/modified (SD 44/48 RR, SD 33/38 LR and RF, SD 33 LF) with or without track stamps, and DIRTcar legal Hoosier Sportsman. Must be racing gas. Brand is optional but Sunoco is the exclusive brand sold at Brewerton Speedway. MSD rev limiters are not required. Both aluminum and steel wheels are allowed, with cars running aluminum wheels required to weigh a minimum of 2,450 pounds. Steel wheel cars have a minimum weight requirement of 2,400 pounds. All cars must be equipped with a working AMB transponder and drivers must monitor race control with a one-way radio tuned to 454.000.
Qualifying heat line-ups will be determined by draw and a redraw will determine the front rows of the feature line-up. The number of heats, qualified cars and drivers to redraw will be determined on race night.
The Fulton Speedway NAPA Late Models originally scheduled for this event will not be in competition.
“We value the NAPA Late Model class and look to continue their growth in this region,” said Cory Reed, Marketing Director of Fulton and Brewerton Speedways, “But with the incredible number of Sportsman that have supported us all year at Fulton and the quality across the Northeast racing landscape, they make great sense to have on board with the UNOH All-Star Sprints. The NAPA Late Models will have a key event during the Friday night portion of the Sunoco Fulton Ethanol Facility Outlaw 200 Weekend Presented by SUNY Canton September 28-29.”
The UNOH All-Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint event is scheduled for July 18 at 7:30 p.m. Adult general admission tickets are $25. Students aged 10 – 16 are $10, with all those 9 and Under Free of charge.
