(Pulaski, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants is proud to announce that Rick Hendrick City Chevrolet has signed on as the presenting sponsor of the 2023 RUSH Late Model National Weekly Series and Track Pack Championship programs, as well as a supporting sponsor of the RUSH Sprint Cars, RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, RUSH Pro Mods, and RUSH Stock Cars.


City Chevrolet, who has had a longtime involvement in motorsports as well as a leader in Chevrolet Performance crate engine racing since its inception, first became a RUSH marketing partner at the end of the 2022 season when it was one of the major sponsors of the “Bill Hendren Memorial”.  Their marketing dollars helped push the Flynn's Tire Touring Series event at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway to a $10,000 to-win purse for the first time!


The two-part Weekly Series program presented by City Chevrolet totals more than $62,000, unmatched by any like series in the country, and features the National Weekly Series Championship that boasts a $27,525 40-position paying point fund plus the Track Pack program.  The Track Pack pays each RUSH Weekly-sanctioned speedway a $2,500 point fund for the top six RUSH members ($1000, $500, $400, $300, $200, $100) in 2023.  It has become an extremely popular program as numerous RUSH Late Model racers are able to capture substantial dollars, many of which never leave their home speedway(s); meanwhile others are able to add bonus dollars to their National Weekly and Flynn's Tire Touring Series Championship monies! 


“We are thrilled to have City Chevrolet become an important corporate marketing partner of RUSH,” expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig.  “Steve Hendren brought City Chevrolet as a sponsor to his father’s memorial event last September and that opened the door to expand their relationship going forward this season.  The Late Model division has always been the heart of the RUSH umbrella of divisions, and by aligning the City Chevrolet name with the RUSH Weekly Series Late Model programs will push them to the forefront of exposure throughout the season.”  


The 2023 City Chevrolet Weekly Series Championship program got underway on March 11 at Winchester (VA) Speedway with 2021 champion Kyle Hardy victorious.  The National Weekly Series will conclude on October 1 as RUSH member drivers 12 best point scores at RUSH-sanctioned events are utilized.  The Track Pack is a cumulative point system for RUSH members at each Weekly-sanctioned speedway, and allows racers to throw out their worst point score or missed event.
