(Pulaski, PA)...As the 2022 season approaches, Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants is excited to launch a new program as part of its Flynn's Tire Touring Series events.  The Feel the RUSH "FANtastic Fan Experience" presented by Sunoco Go Rewards will begin on May 13 at Stateline Speedway, which will follow the "Battle of the Bay" Speedweek presented by 3C Graphix.  Sunoco continues to be the "Official Fuel" of RUSH.


The RUSH Late Models have become known for tremendous racing and strong car counts and their forward momentum on the Touring Series will continue in 2022 with increased purses and a record point fund!  However, this year the Series looks to expand the fan experience at each event with this exciting promotion that will be driven by the FANtastic Fan Experience, which will include ramped up interaction between fans and drivers, music, quality giveaways, youth driven promotions, and much more!       


Heading the program will be Marty Czekala, who has been hired by RUSH as the "Rev It Up" announcer to coordinate the program at the Flynn's Tire Tour events.  Czekala has been the co-host of RSN Trackside on ROC Sports Network and a columnist for Race Pro Weekly covering many major race events throughout New York.  Czekala also has done play-by-play for high school and college sports in New York.  He will work in tandem with Brian Spaid, the voice of the RUSH Racing Series.   


"I feel like I'm going back to my roots when I promoted Mercer Raceway Park for 11 years as we always strived to have great family and fan promotions around the racing," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig.  "Our RUSH Late Model Touring competition went to the next level last year and we see that continuing this year with the increased purse structure of a minimum of $3,000 to win and more!  Our racers give the fans great racing, but I felt because of our promoters' steadfast support that it was our job to bring even more value to the RUSH Late Model Touring events!  I want fans to leave RUSH events knowing they got a lot of bang for their buck!"   


"I can't thank Sunoco enough for their continued support of the Series," added Emig.  "They, as well as other supporting sponsors to be announced in the near future, have come on board to present the FANtastic Fan Experience; it's going to be a perfect and fun vehicle from which to promote their Sunoco Go Rewards App!  Numerous Sunoco retail locations are located in the RUSH Late Model Touring Series footprint so it's a perfect match between Sunoco and the tens of thousands of fans that will attend a RUSH sanctioned event this season!"   


In 2021, Sunoco launched its loyalty program.  The Sunoco Go Rewards program is a mobile-based loyalty program that rewards members when they purchase fuel at participating Sunoco locations.  Consumers who download the Sunoco App are automatically enrolled into Go Rewards and save at the pump when they use their app to pay for fuel.  Download the Sunoco App and start saving instantly!  Download and setup takes only a few minutes.


Stay tuned to RUSH's social media outlets throughout the coming weeks for more details and promotions that will be part of the "FANtastic Fan Experience."
