Sarver, PA (July 20, 2022) With the Fab4 Revved Up by Marburger Farm Dairy getting the week off, Lernerville Speedway welcomes the BOSS Sprint Car Series, Allegheny Sprint Tour, and the RUSH Late Models, Modifieds, and Sprints for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Summer Showcase, this Friday, July 22.
Friday night will be the third annual “RUSH Summer Showcase” at Lernerville Speedway; however, for the first time will include Flynn’s Tire Touring Series events for both the RUSH Late Models and RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. For the Late Models, it will be the second of three appearances at the Sarver, Pa. oval with $3,000 going to the winner. The Late Models last ran at Lernerville on June 25 when Florida’s Mark Whitener topped a 56-car field for the $20,000 “Bill Emig Memorial” presented by Sunoco Race Fuels victory plus a $5,000 championship diamond ring from D&V Jewelers. The RUSH Late Models also ran a Hovis Weekly Series event on May 20 with Will Thomas III victorious.
Thus far this year, the RUSH Late Model Flynn’s Tire Touring Series has completed 11 events with an average car count of over 36 per event. There have been eight different winners as only Virginia’s Roberson (three) and Joe Martin (two) have been able to score multiple victories. Other winners include Delaware’s Joe Warren, New York racers Chad Homan and John Waters, Florida’s Mark Whitener, and Pennsylvania’s Michael Norris and Josh Ferry.
Roberson continues to lead the Flynn’s Tire Tour points with 10 top-five’s and 11 top-ten’s in 11 races. Roberson expanded his lead to 27 over Martin after the July 10 Eriez event. Three-time Tour champion, Jeremy Wonderling finally passed his brother Brady for the third spot in points. Matt Latta has come on as of late to solidly sit fifth in points. Santee is sixth over Andy Michael, Ashton Briggs, Brandt Graham, and Craig Graham. Jim Rasey, who most recently won his first career RUSH Late Model race at Raceway 7 last Friday night, leads the D&V Jewelers Non-Qualifier points.
On the RUSH Sportsman Modified side, Garrett Krummert won the Hovis Weekly Series event on April 29. Friday will be the season’s third Flynn’s Tire Tour event and first of two visits to Lernerville with $800 going to the winner. Thus far this season, Ben Easler (June 18 at Sharon) and Kole Holden (July 14 at Expo) won their first career Tour events. Krummert leads the Touring Series points.
This weekend, Isaac Chapple brings the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) into Pennsylvania with the lead in the standings. Ricky Lewis sets poised in the runner-up spot, looking for the momentum to carry him to the tour title. However, he has very little breathing room as the pleasant surprise in 2022 has been the great runs of Greencastle, Indiana’s Jesse Vermillion. Coming off his career BOSS best third place at Atomic Speedway, Vermillion looks to regain his point lead he held early in the year and more importantly, wants that first career tour win.
