ARDC Action Invades The "Monster Half Mile" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PITTSBURGH, PA - August 1, 2012 - The "mighty Midgets" of the American Racing Drivers Club, Inc. (ARDC) will return to Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway this Saturday, August 4th. In addition, the Late Model Sportsman drivers will compete "topless" in the Convertible 20 feature event. The Super Late Models, Pro-Lates, Hobby Stocks and Young Guns will round out the evening's racing action.
"The feedback from the fans last year was very positive as they really enjoyed the ARDC show. In addition the ARDC teams indicated that they definitely wanted to return in 2012 so we are hoping that the fans will come out and support this Saturday's event," commented speedway owner Matt Miley.
Ryan Smith scored the win in last year's 20 lap main event, defeating Andrew Hannula and Nick Wean. These drivers as well as current ARDC points leader Tim Buckwalter, Trevor Kobylarz, Alex Bright, Brendan Bright and western PA native Joe Butera are also expected to be in action when the wingless warriors tackle the Imperial, PA oval.
This Saturday the Late Model Sportsman competitors will compete in their third Showdown Series event, the "Convertible 20." The 20 lap main event, which pays $700.00 to win, will find the drivers removing their roofs to provide the fans with a unique view of what goes on inside the cockpit. Mike Duritsky scored the initial Sportsman Super Series win in April and Pat Weldon picked up the win at the last Super Series event in June.
