By Mike Leone

 

March 7, 2018               FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

(Pulaski, PA)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance is thrilled to announce that Dirt Defender will be the "Official Wheel Cover" of the Series in 2018.  Dirt Defender will provide wheel covers to the "Defensive Drive" recipient at every Touring Series event for both  the Sweeney Late Models and Bicknell Racing Products Sportsman Modifieds.  In addition, packages will be awarded throughout the Series' "Manufacturers Nights" presented by MSD Performance for all of the dirt divisions.  The program will be supported by Close Racing Supply (Eldred, Pa.) and Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Maryland/Precise Racing Products (Sarver, Pa.) where racers will be able to redeem their Dirt Defender Product certificates.

 

Dirt Defender is a revolutionary company that manufactures numerous new age racing products.  Dirt Defender, "We Got You Covered", is currently manufacturing wheel covers for dirt track racing.  Their wheel covers fit Aero, Bassett, Real, Circle, and more.  Dirt Defender's wheel ring allows you to use their cover on your bead- lock or non-bead lock wheels.  Dirt Defender is located in Red Oak, TX and owned by Billy Vest.  For more information, call 469-556-4612.  "Like" their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/dirtdefender and follow them on Twitter @dirtdefender.

 

The Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive" will give away a contingency package of Dirt Defender products to the driver that best defended his position throughout the night chosen by RUSH Officials at each Sweeney RUSH Late Model and Bicknell RUSH Sportsman Modified Touring event throughout the 2018 season.  The award could go to a driver holding off another for the final heat race or B main transfer position, a driver denying a hard charging racer a feature win, a move to stay on the lead lap before a caution, or any such deserving move. 

 

"I'm really looking forward to partnering with the RUSH Racing Series," stated Vest.  "Dirt Defender products can be utilized across the board in all of RUSH's dirt divisions, which provides us with a very unique opportunity to market our products to hundreds of different racers throughout their region.  It's going to be exciting to see who captures our 'Defensive Drive' award at each RUSH Touring event as there are numerous different scenarios that could happen to allow the drivers to receive the Dirt Defender packages!"           

 

The Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive" award will debut when the 2018 Sweeney RUSH Late Model Touring Series begins on Wednesday, April 18 at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, DE, which kicks off the four-night "Battle of the Bay" Speedweek that continues on to Georgetown, Potomac, and Winchester Speedways the following three days.  The first Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive" for the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will be awarded at the 2018 Bicknell Touring Series opener on Sunday, May 13 at Tri-City Raceway Park in Franklin, Pa.

 

The remaining packages will be awarded as new giveaways for the 2018 "Manufacturers Nights" presented by MSD Performance.  The two RUSH Late Model nights will be on July 19 at Genesee Speedway and August 19 at Tri-City; the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will be June 23 at Sharon Speedway; the RUSH Sprint Cars will be on August 31 at Lernerville Speedway; the RUSH Pro Mods will be on July 28 at Stateline Speedway; and the RUSH Pro Stocks on October 13 at Lernerville.

 

"Dirt Defender definitely fits the phrase 'Often Imitated, Never Duplicated'," stated RUSH Series Director Vicki Emig.  "I recently spoke to Joel Smith of Close Racing Supply and Brett Neupert of Precise Racing Products and about Dirt Defender coming on board with RUSH, and both had very positive comments."

 

"Great company with a great product," expressed Neupert.  "We sell Billy Vest's (owner of Dirt Defender)  products throughout all of our locations and have never had a single issue with their quality or performance." 

 

Smith reiterated, "From my perspective, I want to handle products that racers want.  Dirt Defenders is an excellent product that Billy has done a tremendous job promoting and marketing.  His product fits the criteria that both myself and my customers are looking for in a product so it's a win win for all concerned."
