Less Than a Month Away from the Shootout at the Bullring
By STEVEN PETTY
PERRY, NY – We are less than a month away from the return of the “Mighty Modifieds” to the Bullring at Wyoming County International Speedway for the annual Fall Shootout at the Bullring, featuring the $10,000 to win American Racer 100 on Sunday, October 15th.
The Shootout at the Bullring weekend will begin with a practice session on Friday, October 13th. The open practice session is open to all classes and will be held from 4:30pm-9:00pm.
The action will kick off on Saturday, October 14th with the SST Modifieds headlining the show in the inaugural Jim Pierce Memorial SST 100. Some of the best sportsman/modified drivers in the northeast will be competing for over $3000 in contingency money in memory of 2007 WCIS and SST Modified Series Champion Jim Pierce, who recently passed away at the age of 47. The contingency money program is organized by Lori Overdorf and lap sponsorships are still available for just $26 per lap. To purchase a lap, you can contact Lori via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Sandra Vogler Memorial 51 for the New York Super Stocks (NYSS) will also headline the Saturday portion of the program. The stars of the NYSS will also be competing for their season championship. The 6 cylinders, 4 cylinders and Vintage Late Models will round out the Saturday night card. Pit gates will open at 8:00am with pre-race tech inspection opening at 9:00am. Grandstand gates will swing open at 11:00am with racing getting underway at 2:00pm sharp!
Then on Sunday, the “Mighty Modifieds” return to the Bullring for the third annual American Racer 100. Pennsylvania Modified kingpins Zane Zeiner and Matt Hirschman are expected to be in attendance, both trying to earn their second American Racer 100 title. Danielsville, PA’s Austin Kochenash won the American Racer 75 back on September 9th, guaranteeing him a spot in the 100 lap event. WCIS Super Stocks, INEX Legends and the CAMS Modifieds will also be on the Sunday racing card.
