APPROXIMATELY 50 NEW DRIVERS SET TO MAKE THEIR DEBUT IN 2018 SWEENEY RUSH RACING SERIES COMPETITION
By Doug Kennedy & Mike Leone
 
April 8, 2018              FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
(Pulaski, PA)...Not only does the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance have a large group of drivers that will be returning to RUSH competition in 2018, but the Series also has a whole new class of drivers that will be testing RUSH for the first time in their racing careers.  Included in this group are drivers that will be moving into RUSH from "open" engine division, other who have never been behind the wheel of a race car, and a couple that are moving laterally from one RUSH-sanctioned division to another.
 
All told, Series Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone expect to welcome approximately 50 new racers to RUSH throughout the entire Series in 2018.  As recently reported, there are 20 confirmed drivers in the new RUSH Sprint Car division; 13 new Late Model drivers are ready to kick-off the new season, as well as several in the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, Pro Mods, and Pro Stocks on dirt.
 
The second-year RUSH Asphalt Series, with the beautiful Jennerstown Speedway in Jennerstown, PA as its home base, is expected to see its highest car counts in several years in their Late Model, Modified, and Stock Car divisions.  Many new drivers are returning to compete at Jennerstown now that it is sanctioned under the RUSH banner. A story spotlighting these racers is forthcoming.
 
In almost every case these new racers realize how important RUSH'S' concept of "cost containment" racing is, the competitiveness it creates, and the benefits they can enjoy by being part of the Series.        
 
I swear Vicki (Emig) is one of the only people out there who wants to reduce the costs of racing.  Those are the words of new RUSH Sportsman Modified competitor, Tony Tatgenhorst of Columbiana, Ohio.   
 
The 38-year-old Tatgenhorst raced go-karts since he was a kid, but quit when he had to pay for it himself.  Ive been dirt track circle racing since 2005 with some time off."  For six years, he raced a Mod Lite, a Crate Late Model for a year, and then an E-Mod until he sold it this past October.  I sold it out of frustration because of the costs, Tatgenhorst said. After having problems with two motors, it was a no brainer to sell the car. 
 
I had an empty spot in my garage when I went to see the (Steel City) Stampede at Lernerville and I was hooked, said Tatgenhorst.  They have great technical support for these Modifieds and thats good for guys on a budget.  The cost effectiveness of this class is what drew me to it.  Im a one man band, a blue collar guy who works a ton of overtime, and who pays and works on his car by himself.  Its a user friendly class for a guy who does things on his own.  Im looking forward to racing in a class thats in the drivers hands and not in their wallets.  If you get beat, youre probably being out driven and Im perfectly okay with that.
 
Jon Ellsworth will be moving up to the RUSH Late Models in 2018.  The Marion, NY driver competed the past six years in the Sportsman Modified division throughout New York.  The 41-year-old driver hopes to follow in the footsteps of another Empire State driver in friend Chad Homan, who made a successful transition from the Northeast-style, center-steer Modifieds.  In his first full season of Late Models, Homan had a breakout yearin 2017 with the RUSH Late Models scoring 11 victories including the track championship at Humberstone.
 
Ellsworth will drive the Jon and Shannon Ellsworth Harvest Motorsports #316 in memory of his father and brother, who both passed away last year.  Ellsworths Rayburn car is sponsored by Macedon Parts Plus, Slices Pizza, JJC Custom Graphix, Horsepower Racing Photos, and Alberti & Sons Plumbing. Ellsworth will focus his efforts at the RUSH-sanctioned New York speedways of Outlaw, Fulton, and Genesee Speedways.
 
Jimmy Jesmer, Jr. is 24 years old and lives in Pasadena, Maryland.  His intentions for the 2018 season was to race his Mid-Atlantic (E) Modified but after he lost his ride, he decided to race a RUSH Late Model because it was affordable.  Family is also very special for Jesmer as his parents enjoy going to their campground that is near Delaware International and Georgetown Speedways, both sanctioned by RUSH, which will allow them to be close and attend a lot of Jimmys races. 
 
I want my family together and keep my parents involved so thats why its RUSH," explained Jesmer.  "Anything we do is family oriented.  The family not only stays together with the racing program but Jimmy, his mom, his dad, and younger brother Justin all work together at United States Gypsum Corporation.
 
Younger brother Justin, who is 18, is also looking forward to the upcoming RUSH Late Model season.  Im doing the RUSH Late Model thing mainly because of my brother, said Justin.  My brother said he was going crate racing so I said I might as well too.  For us, its a family thing.  This will give us a chance to race against each other.
 
While both boys will race Delaware and Georgetown, Jimmy will do a little bit of travelling something Justin wont although Justin did compete at Potomac Speedway for their second show on April 6.
 
Thirty-five year old Ronnie Martin of Lexington, Virginia did do some Crate Late Model racing last year competing in three races.  Besides that, Martin was running a Sportsman for the last five years.  After experiencing some motor problems, he decided that racing a RUSH Late Model was what he was going to do for 2018.  I wanted to do some travelling and RUSH was it, said Martin.  The rules package and the people that RUSH have are great.
 
Late Model driver Austin Busler started racing a go-kart when he was 11 years old.  The Leonardtown, Maryland resident is now 20.  Busler spent two years in college playing baseball, but decided it was racing that he wanted to follow.  Last year he helped Futures Cup racer Megan Mann with the set-ups on her RUSH Late Model and thats when the racing bug bit Busler. 
 
My dad (Pistol) and I decided to put something together and split it 50-50, said Busler.  I think RUSH is a great series that allows us to run a lot of different tracks under one set of rules.  Im really excited to have the opportunity, but its going to be a learning experience for me.  Were going to take it one step at a time and every time I go out I hope to get better each time.
 
Another newcomer to oval dirt track racing is Brandon Lott.  His prior experience in racing was mainly with dirt bikes, quads, and UTV racing.  This will be Lotts first year in a Late Model as well.  I got hooked on racing last year when they had the Kenny Wallace Racing Experience at Lernerville, said the 37-year-old Lott of nearby Plum, Pa. We did pretty well and I got hooked.  Im ready to go racing.  I got the car, the trailer, and the whole deal.
 
Lott has been a fan of racing since he was five when his dad took him to watch the races at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway and Lernerville. I like that RUSH is based locally, said Lott.  I like their program because it gives racers an opportunity to race competitively instead of racing against somebodys wallet.
 
Forty-six year old Andy Proper of Warren, Pa. is also in a Late Model for the very first time in his racing career, albeit a career that didnt start until he was 41.  For the last three years, Proper raced a Mini Stock at both Stateline and Eriez Speedway and won the track championship at both tracks.  He also ventured down to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio where he won three features when his scheduled permitted.
 
My first year of racing was a learning curve and my second year became total, full blown dominance, said Proper. I was a late bloomer, he laughed. 
 
For him the next step would have been a Street Stock, but with the cost to be competitive in this class in a continuing to rise, RUSH Late Models made the most sense.  If youre going to make the investment, then you might as well go with the Late Model, said Proper.  Its going to be fierce competition and thats what I like.  He will team this year with longtime car owner Terry Suppa in a Rayburn chassis.  Suppa has had success in several divisions including RUSH with winning drivers Chad Ruhlman, Ward Schell, and Randy Hall. 
 
Fifty-one year old Joe Watson of Smethport, Pa. first ran a Crate Late Model in 2008, but hasnt done any racing since then.  Out of the blue, Watson decided to tell his wife that he wanted to get back into racing and do some travelling. 
 
RUSH has a great Touring program and the pay is pretty good, said Watson.  Ive been following the RUSH Series over the last two years and talked to a lot of guys.  I like their program and am looking forward to following the Tour.  I just wanted to run a few more times before I retire.  Even though my heart is with an open Late Model, I dont want to spend all the money to do it.  RUSH has built such an awesome series and that is what attracted me to it. 
 
Watsons crew will include his son, Joel, and his wife.  Shes a pretty good wrench, said Joe of his wife.  His goal this year is to go out and keep his nose clean and get the feel of the car and go from there.
 
Billy Thompson of Georgetown, Delaware, is also in his first season with RUSH.  I think its a real good series for drivers to run at different places, said the 28-year-old.  We can travel and I think it will be good to go to a number of different places and race.  Thompson will drive for car owner Carl Klink for the 2018 season.   His plans are to run Potomac and Winchester and the "Battle of the Bay" and then set his sights on winning the championship at Delaware International. 
 
There are five new competitors in the RUSH Sportsman Modified class including 29-year-old Garrett Krummert of Ellwood City, Pa.  Krummert raced a Big-Block Modified for the last five seasons.  Weve been okay, said Krummert.  His new Sportsman Mod car owner, Jerry Schaffer, wants to run for points so Garrett will race and all of the RUSH races and about 20 big-block shows.  If its a RUSH-sanctioned race, we will be there.  RUSH has the most races close to home and that's what it came down to.
 
Rob Kristyak of Bristolville, Ohio has also been a Big-Block Modified racer for a number of years.  I got rid of all of my big-block stuff so we'll be running with RUSH this year, said the 39-year-old Kristyak, who actually started his racing career in the West Penn Modified division back in the 90s at Mercer Raceway Park.  His biggest win in a big-block was the Lou Blaney Memorial race at Sharon Speedway, a track where he owns 11 career wins.
 
Weve always been a budget team so thats the big reason for the move," explained Kristyak.  "I think its more affordable and the competition is going to be great.  Theres so many more cars than there is with the Big Blocks.  There should be a lot of side-by-side racing and Im excited to do that.  Im thinking that this year theres going to be consolation races to get into the feature on many nights.  Ive been watching the series since it started and was going to make the move two years ago, but once I blew my big-lock motor at the beginning of last year, I knew I was going to make the move to RUSH. 
 
Bill Barr of Leechburg, Pa. will have his significant other, Lexi Couch, driving his Sportsman Mod for 2018.  This will also be Couchs first year racing.  Ive never done any racing in my life so Im a total newbie, said the 30-year-old Couch.  Im excited, but a little nervous.  We have friends who do it so Ive just been around it without being in the car that much.  I want to get a feel for what Im doing.  Im not afraid, but I dont want to wreck anyone either. Once I get more comfortable, I will push it to the floor and go as fast as I can. 
 
Kyle Babcock of Port Allegheny, Pa. is one of four new participants in the third year RUSH Pro Mod class.  After racing a Mini Stock for the last five years, this will be his first in a Pro Mod.  I cant wait, said the 34-year-old Babcock. I was debating going to the Stocks but I decided to jump up and run the Pro Mods for RUSH this year.  I think the series is a great idea, budget friendly, and a good opportunity for guys to move up.  The class is growing and it looks like we're going to have a good field of cars each night and I like that.  Im excited to give it a try and race against some different guys and just learning.
 
At 35 years old, Adam Ashcroft of Sardinia, NY is another Pro Mod driver who began his career with Mini Stocks.  After one season, he moved to a Street Stock and then to a Sportsman Modified in New York.  Ashcroft has two Street Stock titles at both Little Valley and McKean and another at Freedom.  There were 10 years spent in a Street Stock and five more in an Open Mod.
 
I like the RUSH Series because of the rules package and how they enforce their rules.  They have made it more affordable for lower budget teams to be more competitive, said Ashcroft.  He and his wife, Rachel, will own the Pro Mod.  Shes into it as much as I am, said Ashcroft. 
 
RUSH has always given racers the ability to move up into a type of car they so desire that they otherwise may not have been able to without its affordable rules package.  A perfect example is 25-year-old William Bigley.  The Port Allegany, Pa. resident is a third generation racer following in the footsteps of his grandfather Bill and father Larry.  Williams family including his parents and sister Krystin will also be busy this summer as they are the new leaseholders of McKean County Raceway in East Smethport, Pa. 
 
William meanwhile has raced seven years; two in motocross, three in go-karts, and the last two in a Pure Stock.  Hell now move into the RUSH Pro Mods with a Shaw Chassis powered by a Chevrolet Performance 604 by 955 Automotive sponsored by CZ Logging, Johnson Trucking, Little Power Shop, Phillips & Roeder Well Service, and Bigley Welding & Fabricating. 
 
I chose the Pro Mods because I watched my father drive a similar car from the time he was born until the time he quit in 2005, explained William, who considers two Bill Layfield Memorial victories as the biggest of his career.  The E-Mod type cars hold a special meaning to our family.  I believe the Pro Mods is a good, competitive class with lots of room to advance.   
 
A newcomer to the RUSH Pro Stock class is 30-year-old Kyle Nelson of Mechanicsville, Maryland.  Nelson began his career in 2001 when he was 14.  At the time he was racing in the Bomber class.  Two years later he moved up to the Hobby Stocks and then from 2007 through 2017, Nelson raced a Street Stock.  He was able to win a Hobby Stock title in 2006 and a Street Stock championship in 2009.  Both of those came at Potomac Speedway.
 
After losing a motor last year, he put a crate motor in and liked what he saw.  I like the reliability of the motors, said Nelson.  And the crate motor is affordable.  His goal this year is to get to his 50th career feature win.  I have 49 wins and thats what Im shooting for this year.
 
Two of the drivers changing RUSH divisions are Alan Dellinger and Collin Burke.  The 54-year-old Dellinger has been racing since 1979.  The Niles, Ohio native, who now calls Hermitage, Pa. home, has been a RUSH Late Model participant throughout the past several seasons but this year will be his first in a RUSH Sportsman Mod. 
 
Dellinger was set to run the RUSH Sprint class this year but things didnt work out.  At the end of last season at Sharon, Dellinger was driving a Mod Lite on a slick track and thought that a 602 Sportsman Mod might be the ticket.  Two weeks later we had the 602, said Dellinger, who will continue to drive a #8 for Bob Williams of Canfield, Ohio
 
Sharon and Lernerville are close to home, said Dellinger.  We wanted to race closer to home, race for fun, and not spend a lot of money so the RUSH Sportsman Mod was a perfect fit for us. 
 
Twenty-three year-old Collin Burke of Sarver, Pa., likes the idea of having a consistent rules package that RUSH provides.  I would like to travel down South so now I can do it because the rules are very similar to many tracks throughout the South.
 
This will be Burkes first season in a Late Model after having driven a Pro Stock since 2013 including the last two seasons under the RUSH banner at Lernerville.  Im looking forward to the challenge of it and the new tracks were going to get the opportunity to go.  Since he was 15, Collin served as the crew chief on his dads (Tony) Super Late Model.  Tony, who raced for nearly 40 years, will bring a plethora of experience to his sons race team.
 
Seeing approximately 50 new racers set to compete in the RUSH Racing Series this season for the first time ever is   incredible.  Series Director Vicki Emig feels that by continuing to provide true "cost containment" technical rules packages surrounded by stringent tech, as well as valuable championship and contingency programs that RUSH will continue to grow, but most importantly "keep people racing" for all concerned!

Technicall rules package surrounded but stringent tech and true cost containment
Standing Ovation to Vicki Emmick and company
That is exactly what has been promised at every track and every series in history!
I would never buy a monopoly motor for personal reasons but if this truly plays out the way it has been sold to these guys that believe its what is keeping them racing
That is a wonderful thing !
I disagree with mandating the use and purchase but if it provides an alternative without having to force people to buy in then again Standing Ovation
Her dad is very proud of her !

Standing ovation? From empty stands? Who will be standing to clap, crickets, family members of the drivers? 


Edited by FanJim24, 12 April 2018 - 11:54 AM.

My dad drove late models in the early 70's at North Hills, Butler, Mercer, Blanket Hill, and occasionally Tri City. We won the last late model track championship at Blanket Hill.

94.3 from a racers point of view. She is the great savior, racing would be dead with out her. All the dirt tracks in the tri state area would be closed. The drivers would race for nothing, and be running down to rocket for that new xr-1 to run it in a crate race. Wonder if mark richards gives a discount ? Bicknell and troyer, I doubt it. Heck, xXx, and J&J should. Get in line for your free case of oil. The stands are going to be standing room only. I have a question. If the fans don't come ? What happens ? I bet the lock goes on the front gate. Then what ?

Maybe in the pittsburgh region supers will be specials only but the counts at Thunder Mountain are strong, as are Stateline and Eriez. TM is raising pay, getting solid turnouts in the stands, growing car counts, and no RUSH. Crate racing is what it is, you like it or you don't. We'll see what happens with lernervilles wednesday night shows. I think it's intriguing. However, RUSH grows because they pay out and take care of the drivers. I bet the cost of a pro mod is pretty similar to an economod. I doubt the motors have that much of a price difference but RUSH has manufacturers nights and the big year end payouts. This is why i'm glad Christopher started the elite series. More exposure for a solid division and field of talented drivers. I do not enjoy watching a crate race For the most part. I don't care if you're three wide for an entite race sumply for the sake of being three wide with little to no passing. Smoke said it best when he did that interview about "racing" vs "passing". The best crate races I've watched was Dellinger coming through the field at Sharon 2 years ago because he passed a lot of cars and actually put on a show.

passing is important in every division sicario.......if that was the most important part, most racing would have died buy now.........every division has paid for cars cut out of the cookie mold......prepared, scaled, and ready to go.  and tat is every division, not just rush....

So you're saying that you call yourself a race fan, but you wouldn't watch a crate race? Any real racing fan likes good racing no matter what class is. You people are all about super late models and they are dead around here. Yeah ok they get a good field at some hole in the wall track with 75 % of the field drivers nobody even knows. Instead of blaming Rush, blame the Mark Richards of the world who basically made you need a small fortune to race a super late model anymore.

Little strokes fell great Oaks.

After years of slowly chopping into established dirt oval racing, this year 50 new or established racer's are banked for corporate profit. Lates and Big Blocks have been felled and fan's prepped for a growth of traveling show only fast racing. Last falls selection to begin cutting away at the top Oak of local racing will clear the last obsticle for a complete harvist.

It's all good.

Racer's will be charged a fair price for the quality euipment required. Fans will weekly see great racing of equally matched cars. The show presented will still have both top shelf and lower budget junk to watch with favorites and those in the way. Big shows of supers, big blocks and 410's will still come to town.

It's a win win for all.

All except those now racing or dreaming of racing who can't make the mandatory entry cost set by seller's of goods and services. Face it the days of every gas station having a top quality car outback are gone. And being able to piece together something to race with the gas station guys are gone to. It's been replaced by you fit into the group of customers I'm marketing too or you don't race.


My hat's off to the new providers of stable Saturday night racing and thank you for your hard work to save established racing. 93rad racer soon you'll be on board too or except for on the road you won't have a place to race that umlimited.

We ALL need to support quality racing at a fair price to race. Support fixed cost racing and it will support you.

Unless you are running a 4 cylinder, all the divisions are crate cars. When was the last time you went to an auto wrecking facility and bought a part for your race car?

Does it matter if it's a hole in the wall track or that you don't know 75% of the drivers if the racing's good??? Complain about super racing and how theres no cars and someone brings up tracks that are successfull and it gets discredited because it's not lernerville and the drivers aren't household names. Sounds like the same logic you complain about when shaming crate haters. And 94.3, umm yea i'm aware passing is important in EVERY division. It's kind of the point.... and cookie cutter was your words not mine. But that's a good point. Perhaps racing would be more affordable and varied if every dick and tom would try to figure things out on their own and not spend ungodly amounts of money to get their cars set up. Buying a set of scales and doing some research or calling your chassis manufacturer is a lot cheaper than a trip to RKR or TBR. If your manufacturer is as pleasant as Richards, maybe switch to a builder who is interested in helping EVERY client equally. There are lots of options, some just require a bit more time which not every racer has during the week. Racing is a hard business but it doesn't have to be as costly as some people make it either regardless of whether you run opens or crates.

Lets keep it in perspective
Rush is at about 25 tracks in 5 states and as was posted in another thread have 8 divisions !
So 50 new drivers is about 2 per track NBD
There were more than 2 new Hobbystocks and young guns at Ppms last year .. so thats double rush!
The point is that more racing options is the Standing Ovation and a person like Vicki laying on her pillow at night thinking of ways to broaden the racing community!!
Said it before
Crates are a bandaid to a bigger problem ..Money !!
The Muslim King of the Sodomy party was a superstar like the Emporer of Japan was when they bombed Pearl Habor
But the pengelum is swinging back the other way
Record tax collected by the federal government
All time low in blacks/ Hispanic and woman jobs
Record new manufacturing jobs started in America Of All Places!!
And Brand new this week! Welfare requires your not a deadbeat witch was the number one requirement previously enacted 9 years ago
MONEY!
Crates are a patch and all dressed up like the real thing and thats fine
But if you tell me I gotta buy one
Your mistaken ! However I can give up 100 pounds to you for buyers those tamper bolts even though I have the same engine basically
Ps
You guys that think you got the same motor lol
That guy that just blasted past you had the 900 dollar lightweight upgrade crank ( its legal ) the 3000 dollar tuned and engineered exhaust pipe and $30 per gallon fuel
So keep believing because Perception is reality !
And yes ! They go buy a xr1 and put a crate in it
!
I hear the 48 will be out there and it wont be 2nd hand !
Its been proven on the racetrack that crates and opens can be equalized with weight
So if you say buy my engine or go home
It has to be Bye !

Still nobody answers the question. If there are no fans in the stands, can race tracks survive ? I have only made the point that fans are not flocking to crate racing. I have no problem with crate LM racing, it's the dominance of the sport I have a problem with. Mercer closed. There's a bullshit rumor tri city is on the chopping block. A test and tune at lernerville and 1, only 1 of the new crate sprint cars shows up. Someone mentioned Gale Ruth was there. Well, if you where getting into a new division of racing. Crate Sprint Cars, won't you want to get on track and test ? Running these guys on a Wednesday ? How far is some local racer going to travel that needs to be at work at 6am ? Not Far.....

Still nobody answers the question. If there are no fans in the stands, can race tracks survive ? I have only made the point that fans are not flocking to crate racing. I have no problem with crate LM racing, it's the dominance of the sport I have a problem with. Mercer closed. There's a bullshit rumor tri city is on the chopping block. A test and tune at lernerville and 1, only 1 of the new crate sprint cars shows up. Someone mentioned Gale Ruth was there. Well, if you where getting into a new division of racing. Crate Sprint Cars, won't you want to get on track and test ? Running these guys on a Wednesday ? How far is some local racer going to travel that needs to be at work at 6am ? Not Far.....

What does Mercer have to do with your point? They hadnt run crates regularly in years.

well jo73, raceway 7 has survived since dropping slm years ago with crates as their main class....so your theory is already 'bbbbbbbbbbuuuuuulllllllsssssssshhhhhhhhiiiiiiiitttttttttt'........crates have been around since what 2005? i can't believe they are not dead after 13 years, right? now 8 divisions..........i call bbbbbbbbbbbbuuuuuuuuuuullllllllllllssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttttt again to you. tracks are on the chopping block, because they don't have a good racing surface, with passing.........big tracks struggle because you need a pig under the hood........as to why stateline/eriez has the studs of  the slm community. there will be a ton of them, and yes mr. sicario, they do there homework up here, yournot alone..........lol. and trump is kicking ass with our economy....thank god, because liberals ruin everything. and your patch davey boy,  has brought the new stud slm drivers to the sport.
