Sprints and Fireworks this Sunday to celebrate Independence Day at Eriez Speedway


Hammett, PA (July 1, 2015): Saturday marks the 239th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence and Eriez Speedway will celebrate with a giant fireworks display by Gibson of Titusville, PA followed by the second appearance of the Patriot Sprint Tour Presented by Bonnell's Collision Center, long a supporter of sprint racing in this area.


The last appearance of the Patriot Sprint Tour at Eriez saw Sammy Reakes IV collect his second win of the season with the first coming just the night before. A full field of the ground pounding '360'-powered, winged, fire-breathing all-out race cars signed in to Eriez for the May race and a full field is expected this time with former Eriez winners Scott Kreutter, Jared Zimbardi, Bryan Howland, and Reakes leading the way. Three heat races, a "B" Main (if necessary) and a dash will set the starting field for the 25- lap finale.


In regular racing the Jay's Auto Wrecking Super Late Models will be headed by points leaders Rob Blair, the two-time defending champion; Darrell Bossard and Chris Hackett, a former track champion. Young drivers Max Blair and Chad Wright, two of the all-time best Crate Late Model drivers, fill out the top five in the championship standings. Hackett, Max Blair, Wright, and Chase Junghans all have feature wins this season.


Defending champion Kyle Zimmerman leads the Bonnell Collision Center FASTRAK Late Models in his quest for his second Eriez championship over Matt Latta, Chad Wright, a former champion, Scott Gurdak, and Chris Ottaway. Zimmerman, Blair, and Ward Schell have each gone to the Winner's Circle this  season.


Defending champion Joel Watson heads the Plyler Overhead Door E-Mods standings at the halfway point of the season on the strength of two wins. Mike Kinney, Steve Simon, Steve Rex, and Steve Dixon fill out the top five. Dixon and Dan Davies have also won features this season.


Former champions Chris McGuire and Ryan Scott, each with two wins this season, lead the Kandy's Gentleman's Club Limited Late Models standings. Mike Moon, Bill Applebee, and Anthony Marotto are the rest of the top five.


Don McGuire does not yet have a win but leads the Nelson Lynwood Nursery Street Stocks over single winners Jimmy Kennerknecht and former champion Chris Withers. Two time winner and defending champion Brandon Groters is fourth with Mark Thompson, still looking for his first win this season, fifth. 


Two time winner Casey Bowers leads the charge in the Clinger E-Mod Chassis Economods points race with Dennis Haag and Eric Reinwald second and third. Single winners Ty Rhoades and opening night winner Josh Ferry fill out the top five.
