Colton RV and Troyer Race Cars to Add Bonuses for Racers Thursday Night

On Thursday, June 30 the Ferris Mowers Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series fueled by Sunoco will take part in the 2nd annual ‘Ol’ Boy Cup ‘60’ at Lancaster National Speedway. The race pays tribute to the late Bill Colton, who along with the late Alex Friesen, put up the first Thermal Foam barriers surrounding the 1/2-mile. It was an effort that became legendary as several other speedways adopted the same or similar blocks to assist in protecting drivers. The ‘Ol’ Boy – Bill Colton – later spearheaded the “Super Fan Plan” and several other programs that helped drive Modified racing and Lancaster National Speedway forward. This race is to remember and honor those efforts as well as continue propelling the sport forward. Colton’s sons, Billy (Troyer Race Cars), Jim and Chris (Colton RV) have stepped forward with bonuses for the second consecutive ‘Ol’ Boy Cup.

“My Dad loved Modified racing and Lancaster National Speedway,” explained Billy Colton, the driving force behind Troyer Race Cars since the early 1990’s. “It’s an honor to have his name preserved in this manner with an event at the track he enjoyed so much. We are very proud of the legacy that he created and happy that we can be a part of it. We know the ‘Ol Boy’ will be smiling down on us Thursday night.”

As a bonus an extra $4,000 in money and prizes will be available to drivers during the 60-lap ‘Ol’ Boy Cup feature including $2,800 in lap awards. There will be seven laps with cash prizes of $200 courtesy of Colton RV and seven additional laps will have giveaways of $200 certificates to Troyer Race Cars. The prizes will be given away using the “Lucky 15” format, which Bill Colton used when organized the lap sponsorship program for Lancaster’s U.S. Open. Drivers running inside the top 15 on each lap will be eligible with the winning position randomly selected prior to the race. In addition to the lap money, the winner of the race will receive $600 in cash from Colton RV and a $600 certificate to Troyer Race Cars.

Patrick Emerling of Orchard Park, N.Y., currently leads Chuck Hossfeld of Ransomville, N.Y., by just 13-points in the championship standings. Emerling edged out Hossfeld in May at Lancaster in the Queen City Clash. They will be joined by the likes of Mike Leaty, Tyler Rypkema, Bryan Sherwood, Andy Jankowiak, Matt Hirschman and many of the other Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Teams, along with asphalt Modified racing superstar, Ted Christopher of Plainville, Connecticut. Christopher has been tabbed to drive the Booker Motorsports entry at Lancaster on Thursday.
