Story By: MIKE LEONE / RUSH RACING SERIES – CANANDAIGUA, NY – For the first time in Pace Performance RUSH Late Model Series history, the Flynn’s Tire/Born2Run Lubricants Touring Series will invade Land of Legends Raceway in 2022. The 1/2-mile track in Canandaigua, New York will host the $3,000 to-win event on Saturday, September 10.
This past season on September 11, Lands of Legends became the 13th different track in the Empire State to host a RUSH Late Model sanctioned event in Series history. The highly successful Pace Weekly Series event saw Chris Fleming win a thriller over Sean Beardsley for the $1,000 payday.
RUSH Tour members will be competing for a record Touring Series point fund of more than $51,000 with $15,000 going to the 2022 champion. This 25% increase in the point fund comes one year after the point fund was doubled with Kyle Hardy earning the $12,000 top honors. In addition, RUSH Weekly member drivers will be able to race at the Land of Legends event and accumulate points towards the National Weekly Series Championship.
“Land of Legends is a historic speedway in New York and we’re honored to be able to showcase our brand of Touring Series racing there,” expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. “Over the years, racers have always inquired about the possibility of taking RUSH to Land of Legends, and we were thrilled last year when promoter Paul Cole contacted us about bringing the RUSH Late Models to his facility. The race and facility received rave reviews and the fact that he was willing to go from a $1,000 to-win Weekly special to a $3,000 to-win Tour event speaks volumes. I know this is an exciting announcement for many of our New York drivers and will be a new track the majority of our Tour racers.”
“Vicki Emig and everyone at RUSH has been a pleasure to work with and we welcome their full tour to the track ‘Where Legends Are Made’,” expressed Land of Legends Promoter Paul Cole.
