Weedsport, NY — April 17, 2008 – By Dan Kapuscinski, Rolling Wheels Raceway PR and Promotions Coordinator
In 2008 Advance Auto Parts celebrates its 10th season as the title sponsor of the Super DIRTcar Series for Big-Block Modifieds. To honor this achievement, the annual Labor Day Big-Block Modified Championship held at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park on Monday, September 1 has been tabbed as a 110-lap affair.
“This night is going to be all about Advance Auto Parts and the outstanding commitment they have afforded us through this long-standing relationship,” said Rolling Wheels Raceway Park General Manager, Jack Deery. “We have increased the lap count to 110, we plan to introduce 10-lap leader bonuses, and have even set our admission prices to what they were for this event 10 years ago. It should be an exciting night.”
Pricing for the Labor Day Championship is the same as it was back in 1998. Adult admission will be $17, seniors $15, kids ages 10-14 $5, and children 9 and under are FREE.
Plans are also in the works for several fan promotions to tie in with the 10-year anniversary.
“The past ten years have been great, and we look forward to continuing this great relationship,” said Advance Auto Parts Motorsports Marketing Manager, Mike Paris. “All of us at Advance Auto Parts are working with the folks at Rolling Wheels Raceway and the Super DIRTcar Series to not only put together 10-lap driver bonuses, but to also introduce fan bonuses as well. We all recognize that while the drivers put on the show, it is the fans that keep us coming back. This anniversary is as much dedicated to the fans of the sport as anyone else.”
Joining the Advance Auto Parts Super DIRTcar Series on the card will be a Mr. DIRTcar Sportsman Series 30-lapper. Racing is set for 7pm with grandstand gates opening at 5pm, and pit gates swinging open at 4pm.
