SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES SPECIAL AWARDS FOR KICKOFF TO SPEEDWEEKS
50 POWERED BY SUNOCO RACE FUELS
Bronson Speedway offices have been a busy place
since the start of the new year in preparation for
the February 18th Kickoff To Speedweeks 50 Tour Type
Modified event Powered By Sunoco Race Fuels. Just
this past week Bronson owner Ann Young announced
four special awards for the race as well as
establishing a GoFundMe page that offers lap
sponsorships with that money being applied directly
to the race purse.
"I took a flier on the GoFundMe page idea" Young
admitted, however soon thereafter she was surprised
by the instant reaction and support, "several race
fans and competitors have come on board to sponsor a
lap at $20 for the race and all that money goes
right to the purse". Indeed Ann indicated the $2,000
announced originally for the winner of the 50-lapper
would be increased as would the entire purse based
on the GoFundMe participation. Those who sponsor a
lap will find a complementary pass to the February
18th race card waiting for them at the ticket
window, a $12 value.
Earlier in the week it was announced by Young that
Robbie Cooper of Bronson Lube Inc. has agreed to
post a $100 bonus for the driver that sets fast time
for the Kickoff To Speedweeks Tour Type Modified 50
Powered By Sunoco Race Fuel. For over 20 year
Bronson Lube Inc. has professionally offered the Tri
County area top of the line products and services as
well towing and recovery.
Veteran racing photographer and journalist Michael
"Jaws" Jaworecki has stepped up to offer a $100
bonus to the crew chief of the team setting fast
time for the February 18th Tour Type Modified race.
Jaworecki owns and operates Myracenews.com, a
comprehensive racing web page that keeps fans
abreast of racing action across the country as well
around the world.
On Friday Ann Young announced that five time
Riverhead Raceway Super Pro truck champion Lou
Maestri and his wife Tracy will award the winning
Crew Chief of the Kickoff To Speedweeks 50 Tour Type
Modified Race Powered By Sunoco Race Fuels a $150
bonus. The Maestri's offer the bonus in the name and
memory of their longtime friend and crew chief the
late Joe DeGangi. Lou & Tracy offer a similar award
at the final Super Pro Truck race of the season at
Riverhead over the past several seasons.
Former Long Island Figure Eight driver "Racin" Bobby
Mason had already signed on as a base purse sponsor
for the Kickoff To Speedweeks 50 Tour Type Modified
Race Powered By Sunoco Race Fuels through his Ace's
Landscaping firm on Long Island. Saturday Young
disclosed Mason would also be posting a $100 Hard
Charger award for the race.
In 2016 Ryan Preece won the $2,000 race in his TS
Haulers Chevy and the Berlin, Ct standout and former
NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion will defend his
race win on Saturday February 18th.
Between the GoFundMe page lap sponsorships as well
the special award bonuses the Kickoff To Speedweeks
50 Tour Type Modified Race By Sunoco Race Fuels is
quickly becoming a very lucrative proposition for
race teams at Bronson Speedway.
