Power Seal/Tarvia Seal/Eastern Paving Sportsman Challenge Returns To Fulton August 5th
Story By: DAVE MEDLER / FULTON SPEEDWAY – BALDWINSVILLE, NY – While missed as a competitor, Tom Juno, through his familiar Power Seal Driveway Sealing Company, remains a steadfast supporter of racing at the Fulton and Brewerton Speedways.
He has again organized a lucrative event for Fulton and Brewerton Dot Foods DIRTcar Sportsman to be held, Saturday, August 5.
Joined by fellow paving and sealing professionals AJ Martino from Tarvia Seal and Keith Davison from Eastern Paving, Juno has brought back the Sportsman Challenge, a race he first hosted in 2021 that will be unique in format and lucrative in purse. The event will boast a total purse of $2,500 for ten starters with at least $800 going to the winner.
Performing well in Brewerton and Fulton Dot Foods Sportsman events during the season will be the first step to Power Seal/Tarvia Seal/Eastern Paving Sportsman Challenge Glory as the ten-car field will be comprised of the top-5 in track points from Brewerton and top-5 in track points from Fulton at the time of the event.
The Power Seal/Tarvia Seal/Eastern Paving Sportsman Challenge will be run in addition to the normal sportsman activity that evening.
“Tom Juno does so much for our sport, particularly our Fulton and Brewerton Sportsman teams, “said Cory Reed, Track Manager, “Every year he tries to mix it up, make it fun, but also rewarding for the teams. We are thankful Tom is part of our family and welcome the support of AJ and Keith with this event.”
Power Seal/Tarvia Seal/Eastern Paving Sportsman Challenge Format:
A “revenge draw” format will set the line-up with each driver drawing then giving their number to one of the other nine competitors, even if it’s number one.
Once the line-up is determined, the field will race as one for the first six laps of the event. Adopting a pursuit race format, the last place car at the completion of lap seven and each lap after that will be sent off the track by the race director.
When just two cars remain on the track, a caution will be thrown, with the leader at the time choosing a pill to determine which lane he/she starts in for a final two lap dash for the checkered and $800 payday.
