HOVIS RUSH LATE MODELS SET FOR WEEKEND DOUBLEHEADER OF $3000 TO-WIN FLYNN'S TIRE TOUR EVENTS AT STATELINE SATURDAY FOR "BILL LAW MEMORIAL" & ERIEZ ON SUNDAY
By Mike Leone
(May 10, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Pulaski, PA)...Nearly one month since completing the "Battle of the Bay" Speedweek presented by 3C Graphix, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants will return to action this weekend for a Flynn's Tire Touring Series doubleheader. Race #4 of the richest season in Series history will be at Stateline Speedway in Busti, NY on Saturday night (May 14) with warmups at 6:45 p.m. followed by race #5 50 miles west on Sunday night (May 15) at Eriez Speedway in Erie, Pa. with warmups at 6:15 p.m. Both races this year will pay $3,000 to-win!
This weekend will kick-off the new "FANtastic Fan Experience" presented by Sunoco Go Rewards, which will include ramped up interaction between fans and drivers, music, quality giveaways, youth driven promotions, andmore. In addition, DrumPreserve will present Marty Czekala's "In the Spotlight".
The "Bill Law Memorial" returns to Stateline for the fifth time on Saturday night. In 2011, Law was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer and passed away in July 2012. Law's involvement in racing began in the late 1970s as he loved having muscle cars and going to the drag strip in his high school days. Even though he never actually raced, he stood behind racing 100%. In the early 1980s, Law and Leon Szweda put an asphalt car together and raced at New York's Holland Speedway.
Law's taste for racing moved to the dirt tracks in the mid 1980s as he helped Tom Taber for several years. He met a lot of great people that he became very good friends with; one was Bob "The Bird" Baldwin. The Law Family traveled with him and his family racing from Pennsylvania to West Virginia to Maryland.
As Bill's son Jon was getting older, they got involved in Go-Kart racing as the family would travel all over New York and Pennsylvania. Bill was still involved in auto racing as they would race Go-Karts during the day and sell parts and fuel at night at the races. As Jon got older, Bill bought him an IMCA Modified. A few seasons later, Jon and Bill bought a Limited Late Model. That lasted a couple years until Jon was starting his own family and got away from the racing scene.
Law was the first person to have a Crate Late Model in the region when the class debuted in 2007 in the Northeast. Law had several drivers over the years behind the wheel of his #14 including Baldwin, Ward Schell, Rich Gardner, Jon Law, Curt VanPelt, David Scott, and Kyle Scott. Bill's grandson, Kyle Murray, had an abrupt end to his fifth year of RUSH Late Model competition last year with a nasty flip at Winchester Speedway. Murray, who owns five career wins in RUSH Weekly Series action, has been working to get a new car together, but unfortunately will not be ready to race on Saturday night.
With the Scott Family owning Stateline, it's fitting the "Bill Law Memorial" takes place at their track as Jean and Jim Scott's son David and grandson Kyle drove for Law. The 2017 event was the first ever Tour event at the Busti, NY oval in the 10-year history of Crate Late Models in the Northeast as a big crowd watched a thriller as Jeremy Wonderling held off standout and track dominator Max Blair for the victory. The 2018 event was just as good as Damian Bidwell made a late race pass of Scott Gurdak for his first Tour win in more than three years. In 2019, Wonderling again held off Blair after withstanding a mid-race rain delay. The COVID-19 pandemic cancelled the 2020 event. Last year, Wonderling was victorious for the third time in four tries topping a Stateline record 43-car field!
Meanwhile, there have been nine RUSH Tour events completed all-time at Eriez. Max Blair has six victories, while his father Rob has one in a substitution role for Max. Last year, Kyle Hardy swept both events winning over a 38-car field in May then topping a 46-car field at "Manufacturers Night" in August.
Saturday will be Stateline's 2022 opener after saturated grounds forced them to cancel on May 7; meanwhile, Eriez got their season underway on Sunday night with last year's RUSH "Track Pack" Champion, Jason Genco, victorious.
"This is a nice weekend for our northern RUSH Late Model teams to be able compete in two $3,000 to-win Tour events and also for our traveling teams as the two tracks are just 50 miles apart," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "We have to thank the Scott Family for their continued support of RUSH and the Alexander Family for continuing Sunday night RUSH racing that the Rohrers had done so successfully over the years. We're thankful that the Law Family has allowed us the opportunity to continue be able to have the 'Bill Law Memorial' as a Tour event, and we look forward to honoring Bill on Saturday night."
Logan Roberson got off to a fast start in 2022 Flynn's Tire Tour competition winning the last two events at Potomac and Winchester Speedways after a runner-up on opening night at Delaware. Brady Wonderling is back on the RUSH Tour after a three-year hiatus and ended the "Battle of the Bay" strong with back-to-back third place finishes. After winning three straight championships, Brady's brother Jeremy will now look to get back on track after getting dethroned by Hardy in 2021. Joe Martin is coming off a runner-up point finish in 2021 and finished runner-up in the last show at Winchester as he has his sights set on the $15,000 Flynn's Tour Championship. Michael Duritsky, Jr. has three Hovis Weekly Series wins in 2022 and finished the "Battle of the Bay" with a sixth and a fifth, but is still in search of his first career Tour victory.
Each night will include $100 "Shock the Clock" Qualifying and $25 to-win heat races presented by FK Rod Ends. The Sunoco Dash will set the beginning rows of the 30-lap feature lineups and will award the winner a $100 Sunoco fuel gift card. The "Fill'er up with Sunoco Bucks" program will include an additional $400 of Sunoco fuel card giveaways each night; two $100 random draws for drivers in the top 15 of Tour points and another four $50 random draws for all other competitors.
Precise Racing Products will award a $50 gift card for the "Pedal Down" Hard Charger that passes the most cars in the feature each night. The TBM Brakes “Tough Brake of the Night” will award three bottles of Xtreme6 Racing Brake Fluid each night. The feature winner each night will receive a 5-Gallon Race Jug from Precise. Ontime Body & Graphic's "Spoiler Alert" will award a spoiler kit to the fourth place finisher on the first night and the fifth place finisher on the second night (note: if a driver has already won a spoiler this season, spoiler will be awarded to the next position). Performance Bodies will award a $100 gift card to the first non-qualifier each night part of the "Nosed Out" program.
Feature Payoff Each Night: 1. $3,000 2. $1,500 3. $800 4. $650 5. $600 6. $500 7. $475 8. $450 9. $425 10. $400 11. $325 12. $300 13. $275 14. $270 15. $265 16. $260 17. $255 18-24. $250.

WATERSTONE MORTGAGE OF HERMITAGE TO AGAIN PRESENT "LOYALTY PROGRAM" IN 2022; ONE RUSH MOD RACER WILL WIN A CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE 602 SPORTSMAN MODIFIED ENGINE PACKAGE VALUED AT $11,000+
By Mike Leone
(May 5, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Pulaski, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Sportsman Modified Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants is proud to announce that for the second straight year, Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage will present the "Loyalty Program". One RUSH Modified racer will win a complete race ready Chevrolet Performance 602 Sportsman Modified crate engine package (carb-to-pan) valued at approximately $11,000; this will be the most valuable product to ever be given away in the history of the RUSH Racing Series!
True to its name, the "Loyalty Program" presented by Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage will reward loyalty. In order to be eligible for the engine giveaway, drivers must be a RUSH member and cannot compete in a non-RUSH sanctioned Sportsman Modified event the same night as a contested RUSH-sanctioned event throughout the 2022 season.
Eligible drivers competing in 25-49% of total completed RUSH events will receive one chance for the engine giveaway; eligible drivers competing in 50-74% of total completed RUSH events will receive four chances; eligible drivers competing in 75-99% of total completed RUSH events will receive eight chances; and any eligible drivers that compete in 100% of the total completed RUSH events will receive 10 chances.
The engine package will be drawn at the season finale on October 15 at Lernerville Speedway's "Steel City Stampede" by a Waterstone Mortgage representative. Last year, Chas Wolbert capped off his second straight Hovis Weekly Series Championship by being selected as the lucky winner of the engine package presented by Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage.
The promotion is made possible by Sara Cipriano, who is a Mortgage Loan Originator at the Waterstone Mortgage Hermitage, Pa. branch. Sara is the mother of 2020 RUSH Sportsman Modified "Futures Cup" Champion, Ayden Cipriano. In 2020, the Hermitage, Pa. driver recorded five top 5s and nine top 10s including a career best third at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway on his way to sixth in both the Hovis Weekly Series Championship and the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series points. Last year, Cipriano recorded two top 5s and eight top 10s.
"After such a positive response to the Loyalty Program last year we knew that we wanted to be involved again going into 2022," stated Cipriano. "A lot of racers within the series have become friends to our family. Not only their appreciation but their gratitude was overwhelming. I can't wait to see what the 2022 season brings and to see who the lucky recipient is this year!"
"Sara contacted us last year about getting involved with the Series through Waterstone Mortgage," explained RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "We felt this year long promotion was something racers would really look forward to and in its debut the program proved extremely successful. Even with the cost of the package increasing, Sara stepped up to continue to do this promotion in 2022! And what a way for a loyal RUSH racer to end the year by winning an $11,000 Chevrolet Performance 602 engine package thanks to Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage."
"We don't know of any other similar program in the region and we can't thank Sara enough for her continued support of the RUSH Sportsman Modified division," continued Emig. "We hope that everyone remembers and also reminds friends and relatives to in turn support Waterstone Mortgage for their home mortgage needs."
Other RUSH corporate marketing partners who joined with Waterstone Mortgage to complete the Chevrolet Performance 602 "race ready" engine package are Holley Performance Products, MSD Performance, Schoenfeld Headers and Jones Racing Products along with Ingram Engines, Race 1 and 955 Automotive.
For more than 20 years, Waterstone Mortgage has worked with families across the nation, helping them achieve their homeownership dreams.

In 2013, their corporate team relocated to their current Home Office in Pewaukee- a 56,000-square-foot facility.
