FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hesston Cranks UP the Payoff for Speedmonster/3 State Flyers “Revolution 2012” on July 3
(Hesston, PA) Hesston Speedway is ready to rock the mountains of central PA on July 3 with its 2nd major Super Late Model event of 2012. “Revolution 2012” will feature the Speedmonster/3 State Flyers Super Late Models with a total payoff in all divisions of over $35,000. The “Dirt Doctor” and his crew have prepared a perfect multi-groove track so far this season and will provide the venue for a spectacular holiday event.
With Hesston Speedway coming off the most successful event ever in the history of the track with the 1st-ever Speedmonster event, DR Eriksen has decided to return that success to the race teams for the next mega-event! All divisions will receive payoff increases in various positions at “Revolution 2012” on Tuesday, July 3. with NO INCREASE IN ADMISSION from the 1st Speedmonster race!
Hesston has become a powerhouse* of late model racing in the region (*t-440). Since 2011, “Motor Mountain” has averaged 41 Super Late Models and 67 total late model-type cars at its mega-events. With its unique, multi-level rules sets, Hesston has also become the premier showdown track in the area. Virtually every car in the region in the divisions that Hesston runs is legal and will be competitive with weight breaks and spoiler variances for different equipment types. This makes Hesston a true place for race teams to face off to determine who earns the bragging rights of being the best in their division.
The Speedmonster/3 State Flyers will pay $5,100 to win and $400 to start for the 55 lap championship race. Super Late Model non-qualifier pay has been increased to an unprecedented amount of $200 for “Revolution 2012.” This increase in tow money makes Hesston the highest paying track for those positions in the region.
Semi-Late Model Sportsman (limited/crate/steel block late models) will see increased pay of $1,100 to win and $150 to start at this race. Non-qualifers will receive $100, which was already doubled from last year’s tow money for the 1st Speedmonster event. Additionally, the highest finishing crate late model with a top 5 finish will receive a $400 bonus, if that bounty is not claimed on June 23.
A-Cadets (street/pro-stock) will now race for an increased payoff of $700 to win and $90 to start on July 3. Non-qualifiers will receive $60, which had also already been increased for the 1st Speedmonster event. Roadrunners will now compete for $222 to win. Once again, their start money has been increased to $45 because of the previous car count. The Hobby-Modifieds will compete for an increased payoff of $500 to win and $50 to start, sponsored by Bedford County Tree & Lawn Solutions of Everett, PA.
Nick Dickson of Lewistown, PA stunned the record crowd at the 1st Speedmonster Super Late Model event this season by winning from the 24th restating position, in a race where the top 9 advanced 58 positions. Dickson and Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills, PA currently are tied for the lead in the Speedmonster Super Series championship, which pays $2,000 to the champion from a $5,000 point bonue fund. Satterlee is also leading 3 State Flyer points after claiming a win at Natural Bridge Speedway last weekend. Jeff Rine and Jeremy Miller both have Super Late Model wins at Hesston in 2011 and sit 3rd and 4th in Speedmonster points with Mike Lupfer rounding out the top 5.
Rick Singleton of Huntingdon, PA was the Semi-Late Model Sportsman championship feature winner and currently leads track points. Khi Swanger of Huntingdon, PA won the A-Cadet championship feature. Rick Potter of Everett, PA came home the winner in the Hobby—Modifieds. Adam Pletcher of Johnstown, PA started 20th on the grid and roared forward to win in the Roadrunners.
All 5 divisions will be competing in “Revolution 2012”, with feature-only, extended-lap formats for the Hobby-Modifieds and Roadrunners. The Super Late Model feature will be 2nd in rotation, with only necessary races in between sets of Super Late Model races to give those teams enough time to work on their cars. The remaining 3 features will be run after the Super Late Models.
A-Cadets will run without a time limit at this event since their last 2 championship races saw the time limit expire. The A-Cadets will be 1 of the features after the Super Late Models.
Because of the weekday scheduling of this event, “Revolution 2012” will follow a new order of events to accomplish premium track conditions and a timely racing program.
