Story By: DAVE MEDLER / FULTON SPEEDWAY – FULTON, NY – The month of August signals now is the time to get wins or top finishes in the track championship chase. It can also build momentum going into the prestigious Milton Cat Outlaw 200 Weekend September 28-29-30.
On the race card this saturday, August 5 presented by Ehrlich Pest Control will see the Tracey Road DIRTcar Modifieds, DOT Foods DIRTcar Sportsman, E&V Energy Novice Sportsman, Billy Whittaker Cars & Trux Hobby Stocks.
The Sportsman will take center Stage beyond their heats and feature when Power Seal/Tarvia Seal/Eastern Paving presents the Sportsman Challenge.
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 $850 payday with a total purse of $3000 to be paid out to the ten competitors.
Fulton speedway cars already locked in are Andrew Buff,Emmett Waldron, Richard Murtaugh, Kyle Devendorf, and Clayton Brewer III.
Brewerton Speedway competitors will be decided this Friday, August 4.
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.
