BATTLE OF THE BAY TAKING THE MID-ATLANTIC BY STORM

 

(Mark Cathell) There is a “super storm” brewing on the Chesapeake Bay and race fans from Maryland, Delaware and Virginia are about to feel it’s effects! Three of the most popular Late Model dirt tracks in the Mid-Atlantic have teamed up to create what is sure to bring fans, race teams and sponsors more exciting racing this year. Delaware International, Potomac and Winchester Speedways have a unique 9 race series, featuring 3 consecutive nights of racing, visiting all three facilities over 3 different weekends. The “Battle of the Bay” will offer Super Late Model teams over $100,000 in purse and contingencies, plus a mini points series to award the Top 5 teams. Since the release of this program, it’s been nothing but a positive buzz in the Super Late and Crate Late Model world.

The series will begin on Thursday night, April 27 at Delaware International Speedway then move to Potomac Speedway for race #2 Friday night, April 28. Winchester Speedway will host the final leg of weekend number 1, on Saturday, April 29. Delaware International will be closed for their racers and fans to attend. In addition to the Super Late series, the RUSH Racing Crate models will compete with the SLM each night and will also have a points series for those racers. The two additional weekends on the schedule will take place July 27 – 29 and August 10 – 12.

Bernheisel Racing and Lazer X Chassis will join the Battle of the Bay series, by awarding the top driver, (who must compete in all 9 races) a 2018 Stage 1 Laser X chassis. Hoosier Mid-Atlantic has also come on board and will be giving the Super Late Model feature winner each night a brand new Hoosier Racing tire. The RUSH Racing Crate Models have a great sponsor as Sports Clips of Maryland and Delaware have contributed $2000 for the points fund. This points fund will work exactly like the SLM, giving the top 5 Crate Model drivers (who must compete in all 9 races) in their category some bonus cash as well.
