Story By: DAVE MEDLER / FULTON SPEEDWAY – FULTON, NY – The fine folks from Power Seal/Tarvia Seal/Eastern Paving pumped up the purse to an amazing $3000 for the Brewerton and Fulton Speedways Sportsman challenge at the Fulton Speedway on Saturday, August 5.
The race pits the top-five in the point standings from each track in a unique 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 subsequent lap 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.
Currently Andrew Buff (377 points) is the leading representative from Fulton Speedway, with Emmett Waldron (364), Richard Murtaugh (356), Kyle Devendorf (348) and Clayton Brewer III (340) all locked into the lucrative event.
Two more points races will decide the five drivers that will represent the Brewerton Speedway. Currently Zach Sobotka (388 points) shows the way with Chris Hulsizer (360), Richard Murtaugh (354), Steven Marshall (352) and Brandon Carvey (346) your top 5. Brett Sears (345), Kyle Devendorf (340) Cody Manitta (337), Dorian Wahdan (307) and Riley Rogala (301) are 6th – 10th and looking for two good outings the next couple of weeks to lock themselves in.
A driver will represent the track he ranks highest in. Alternates will be determined for drivers that qualified from each track and should a driver not be able to attend. The final field will be determined on Saturday, August 5.
