February 6, 2014       FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Pulaski, PA)…With every passing cold and snowy day, the 2014 Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series season is one day closer for its Late Model and Sportsman Modified divisions.  Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone continue to work on a daily basis on programs for each series, and are excited to announce that Sarver, PA-based Precise Racing Products, which also serves as home of Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Pittsburgh, has signed on as a 2014 Major Contingency Sponsor.

This year’s Precise Racing Products “Pedal Down” Hard Charger Award will not only be renewed on the Late Model side, but will also include the new Sweeney RUSH Sportsman Modified division.  Precise joins FK Rod Ends as the second company to become a Major Contingency Sponsor of both of the Sweeney RUSH Series! 


At each of the 2014 Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC Touring Series events in both divisions, Precise will award a $100 Platinum Gift Card to the driver that advances the most positions from his original starting spot.  If two or more drivers advance the same number of positions, the driver finishing the highest will receive the award.  Approximately 20 Sweeney RUSH Late Model Tour events will be on the schedule, while the Sweeney RUSH Sportsman Modified Tour events will be designated in the coming weeks.


“Our entire staff is excited to have our brands, Precise Racing and Hoosier Mid-Atlantic, involved in the growing RUSH Series in our region in 2014 and beyond,” stated Precise Racing Products/Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic GM Bob Wirts. “We felt it was a no brainer to support all our local teams and competitors and give back some cash value through our team card system. Teams will be able to redeem these on any items from tires to transmissions to t-shirts. We are aggressively gearing up our stores with a full line of Late Model and Modified components and products from all the top manufacturers to serve all RUSH competitors.”

“We can’t thank Precise Racing and Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic for coming on board with our Series once again in 2014,” expressed Emig. “This has been a tremendous program in the past with our Late Model teams and we know our Sportsman Modified teams will feel the same way. Chris Archer and “Hoosier” Bob Wirts are big supporters and proponents of our Series and we have to thank them for making this program happen. This will be a great bonus each night for racers that work hard to advance through the field.”


Precise is also offering a 5% discount on all racing parts (excluding the sealed Bilstein shock, fuel, and tires) for the entire 2014 season to all RUSH Sportsman Modified member drivers!   2014 membership forms are available online under the membership link at  Membership cost is $125, which makes driver eligible for the Series point fund, $100,000 of additional excess participant accident insurance over and above driver’s health insurance and/or speedway’s policy, as well as additional perks.
