JACOB HAWKINS DENIES MIKE PEGHER JR OF 2ND STRAIGHT "JOOK GEORGE STEEL CITY CLASSIC" WIN BY TAKING THE SEASON'S RICHEST SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR EVENT WORTH MORE THAN $5100 OVER A PITTSBURGH RECORD 51-CAR FIELD

By Mike Leone August 11, 2018

(Imperial, PA)...Despite an unfavorable forecast all week, a major storm front blew through the region Friday night and pushed far enough south Saturday allowing for beautiful weather conditions for the 29th annual "Jook George Steel City Classic" at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway. For the second straight year, the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series presented by Pace Performance sanctioned the event and once again brought out a record car count of 51 topping last year's count of 43. RUSH cannot thank the efforts enough by Branden Lockwich to organize and raise all of the record amount of donations, the George Family, all of the sponsors, and the Miley Family for hosting this successful event along with the 51 drivers from five states plus Ontario, Canada.

Mike Pegher, Jr. was on cruise control for the first 18 non-stop laps; however, a caution bunched up the field and allowed Jacob Hawkins to make the winning move on the ensuing restart. Hawkins' pass would deny Pegher of a second straight "Jook George Steel City Classic" victory as he'd make a winning season debut with the Sweeney Tour. Hawkins became the ninth different winner in 13 Tour races this season with his first victory since October 25, 2015. All told, Hawkins earned $5,110 with $5,010 for the win, $25 bonus from R2 Motorsports, $25 for winning his heat, and $50 for leading lap 28 from Bryant Hank.

BRANDEN LOCKWICH CONTINUES TO MAKE $5,010 TO-WIN "JOOK GEORGE STEEL CITY CLASSIC" AT PITTSBURGH A CROWN JEWEL EVENT; 29TH ANNUAL RACE ON AUGUST 11 WILL BE A SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR EVENT FOR 2ND STRAIGHT YEAR

By Mike Leone August 2, 2018

(Imperial, PA)...In 2017, the "Jook George Steel City Classic" race, held annually at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway, became a Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring event. This event, in its 29th year, is the second most important event at PPMS next to the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series 30th annual "Pittsburgher 100". The 2018 version of the "Jook George Steel City Classic" will again pay a minimum of $4,010 to-win, and will take place on Saturday, August 11 with a rain date of Sunday.

“We believe that they are two of the longest consecutive running events in the region,” said Matt Miley, PPMS promoter. “The Jook George is a big deal to the Miley family, the George family, and all the racers who have been or are part of it.”

The event is financed by contributions from a number of people, companies, race teams and racing organizations including RUSH. The bulk of the promotion is handled by 34-year-old Branden Lockwich of Imperial, Pennsylvania. The race is special for Lockwich because Jook was a friend of the family for a number of years. “I know his family very well and this event takes on a personal feeling…. it’s not just another event,” said Lockwich.

DAMIAN BIDWELL SWEEPS THE NIGHT AT STATELINE SETTING FAST TIME, WINNING HIS HEAT, THE DASH & THRILLING FEATURE OVER SCOTT GUIRDAK IN THE $2000 “BILL LAW MEMORIAL” FOR HIS 1ST SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR VICTORY IN MORE THAN 3 YEARS

By Mike Leone July 28, 2018

(Busti, NY)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series powered by Pace Performance returned to the Empire State on Saturday for the third straight event and fourth in the last five. Saturday was race #12 of the 2018 season in the only appearance at Stateline Speedway. The “Bill Law Memorial” was originally scheduled for May 19, but rain postponed the event more than two months to Saturday night. It was the second straight year Stateline hosted the event for the grandfather of RUSH Late Model racer, Kyle Murray. Law was the first to have a Crate Late Model in the Northeast back in 2006- the season before Crate Late Models debuted in the region.

Damian Bidwell wasn’t even sure he was going to make it to Stateline on Saturday night, but a late decision to come proved fruitful. Bidwell swept the night setting fast time, winning his heat, the dash, and the 30-lap feature for a $2,125 pay day. Bidwell hounded Scott Gurdak before making the winning pass on lap 26 then held off the veteran over the final laps for his first Sweeney Touring Series victory since June 22, 2015 at Ohio’s Wayne County Speedway. Bidwell became the season’s eighth different winner as still no driver has been able to win more than two features.

JEREMY WONDERLING'S 1ST SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR WIN OF 2018 COMES IN ANOTHER THRILLER AT OUTLAW; MEANINGFUL $2000 VICTORY COMES IN THE "GARY MONTGOMERY MEMORIAL"

By Mike Leone July 20, 2018

(Dundee, NY)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series powered by Pace Performance wrapped up the New York doubleheader on Friday night at Outlaw Speedway. The second annual "Gary Montgomery Memorial" was originally scheduled for June 1 before being rained out and rescheduled to the night after the stand-alone July 19 show at New York's Genesee Speedway. Race #11 of 18 for the 2018 season attracted racers from all over New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Ontario, Canada.

One night after losing the Sweeney Tour point lead, Jeremy Wonderling may have picked the perfect time to score his first RUSH win of 2018. The former standout for Gary Montgomery's BRP Can-Am "360" Late Model Series won the thriller in the second annual event that remembered the late and longtime Series owner, track manager, and announcer. Wonderling passed Chad Homan on lap on lap 20 then held off Jason Genco for the $2,000 victory in the 30-lap non-stop affair timed in 8:33.432.

The track only received very light showers throughout the day even though it sprinkled and drizzled throughout the entire night.

By Mike Leone May 22, 2018

(Pulaski, PA)...Mother Nature certainly hasn't been kind to many of the speedways under the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance banner in 2018. Two in particular, Stateline and Eriez Speedways, each suffered another rainout this past weekend as neither have been able to complete an event thus far in 2018. Those rainouts included the Sweeney Late Model Tour events on Saturday (May 19) at Stateline and Sunday (May 20) at Eriez.

Thanks to both speedways, the events have been rescheduled with the Sweeney Tour making their first of two appearances at Eriez now on Sunday, June 10.

By Mike Leone April 26, 2018

All four tracks had a minimum of 40 cars and despite less than favorable weather, and all have already stated their intention to do it again in 2019!

A total of 63 different drivers from six states (Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware) plus Ontario, Canada participated. The average car count was 42.75. A total of 28 different drivers ran all four nights! Another five drivers ran three of the four nights. If it weren't for some issues, most likely at least five other drivers would have competed all four nights. Special recognition to Canadians Charlie Sandercock and Adam Ferri who competed all four nights with their tow to Delaware being between nine and ten hours!

MAX BLAIR OPENS “BATTLE OF THE BAY” PRESENTED BY PANCHO’S WITH DOMINATING SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR VICTORY OVER THE 46-CAR FIELD IN THE 1ST EVER RACE AT DELAWARE

By Mike Leone April 18, 2018

(Delmar, DE)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series powered by Pace Performance kicked off the 2018 season on Wednesday night in the first ever race at Delaware International Speedway, and in fact the first ever in the state of Delaware. It was night one of the four-night inaugural “Battle of the Bay” Mid-Atlantic Speedweek presented by Pancho’s Racing Products, which attracted 46 cars from five states (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York) along with Ontario, Canada. Special thanks to Elliott Farms for posting $600 in feature lap money rotating amongst the top five cars each feature lap.

Max Blair has won races from Canada to Florida, but had never raced, let alone won before, in the “First State”. That all changed on Wednesday night as Blair put on a dominating performance leading all but the first lap to claim the $2,000 season opening “Marquee” Tour event win at DIS. Blair, who also earned an additional $100 in lap money, now takes the early point lead in both the Sweeney Tour as well as the “Battle of the Bay” Speedweek.
