(Sodus, NY) After weeks of preparation, Patriot Sprint Tour President Mike Emhof and Scott Bonnell of Bonnell’s Collision Center are set to present the 1st Annual Western Speedweek for the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour.
It’ll be the richest Speedweek for 360 Sprint Cars in the Northeast as the series will race three straight nights, with each night paying $4,000 to win, $1,500 for second, and $1,000 for third! It will also be $325 to take the green flag. If a driver can win all three events, an additional $3,000 will be earned courtesy of Mike Emhof Motorsports Inc.
Champion Power Equipment has also signed on for the weekend as a separate points system will be in place for the three race event and the overall point leader at the conclusion of the weekend will receive a 9000 Watt Dual Start electric generator courtesy of Super Gen Products. There will also be a Hard Luck Award where the recipient will receive a Champion winch and the overall Hard Charger recipient will also take home a 9000 Watt Generator.
Fans will also have the opportunity to go home at the end of the week with a brand new 3500 Watt Dual start electric generator by entering a drawing at each race event.
The racing starts this Friday, July 1 at the Little Valley Speedway, then Saturday, July 2, PST will head to the Mercer Raceway Park, and conclude the Speedweek on Sunday, July 3 at the Eriez Speedway.
There will be drivers coming from New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Michigan, Ohio, and even Ontario, Canada to compete for one of the richest racing weekends in all of the Northeast this season.
Although there will be a separate point series for this weekend, all three shows will also go towards 2016 PST-American Series Championship. Jared Zimbardi has a comfortable advantage over Dane Lorenc, Paul Habeck, Dave Just and Tyler Graves.
