25th Annual Jook George Memorial
Showcases RUSH Pro-Lates
PITTSBURGH, PA — The month of August is winding down, but continues to heat up with the Precise Racing Products RUSH Pro-Late Models in the spotlight for the 25th Annual Jook George Classic this Saturday at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. A complete program for the Diehl of Robinson Super Late Models, Sunoco Race Fuels Late Model Sportsman, Miley BP Carwash Hobby Stocks and the Imperial Heights Garage Young Guns, and 3/4 Late Models will complete the evening’s racing action. All at regular grandstand admission prices.
The Jook George Fall Classic started in 1990 to showcase the Pro-Late Model teams and we are proud to continue the event in his memory. Jook loved the sport of auto racing and we at PPMS would like to instill that love of the sport into today’s fans. Jook enjoyed youngsters and often brought gifts to the speedway for them. This season the pre-race activities will include a FREE Barnyard Animal Petting Zoo starting at 5:30 PM. Pony rides will also be available. In addition, Beaver County Youth age 16 and under are FREE, while Beaver County Adults with photo ID get a $2 discount as part of Beaver County Night. Washington County Youth Night is coming up September 6.
The evening will get underway with group time trials for the Precise RUSH Pro-Late Model competitors. CLEETUS Inc will award $100 for fast time. The times will determine the heat race lineups and the top finishers in the preliminary events will redraw for their starting positions in the 25-lap main event. Castelveter

Back when we raced, fans used to sponsor laps, fast times, dashes etc. You might think its dumb , but for the drivers we always appreciated when a fan would be willing to put his money out there to support our sport. I am sure whoever wins the fast time and hard charger awards will be happy these 2 people put up money for it. If we had more fans who were willing to contribute to racing in a positive way instead of sitting on message boards complaining about everything the sport would be in a much better place. Not everyone can afford to race, so sponsorship might be the only way they can be involved, or perhaps they have friends who race and want to contribute to their programs.
