Busti, NY (May 16, 2019): Bill Law will be remembered this Saturday at Stateline Speedway.  Law was the man who introduced FASTRAK Late Models to this area back in 2007.  Since then the sanction for the division has become RUSH.  Law had a vision of a class of Late Model competition that was more affordable and competitive than the traditional Super Late Models.  Since then RUSH Late Model racing has become a staple of local speedways and is one of the most popular and competitive classes, as well as being affordable to a wider range of racers.  The event is a Marquee Tour Event on the Sweeney RUSH Late Model 2019 Touring Series and is the fifth of seventeen scheduled for the 2019 tour.  The winner will receive $2000.  Max Blair, the current RUSH points leader, Darrell Bossard, the defending Stateline RUSH Late Model champion, opening night winner Damian Bidwell, and Kyle Murray, grandson of Bill Law, are all expected to be in the battle for the win.

All six classes will be in competition Saturday with the RUSH Late Models being the featured class.  Opening night saw 141 racers competing in 17 heats and 6 features.  Scoring feature wins on opening night were Chub Frank (Dave Warren Auto Group Super Late Models), Damian Bidwell (Close Racing Supply RUSH Late Models), Dennis Lunger (E-Mods and Chris Whyte’s Spray Foam RUSH ProMods), Jason Covey (Penn-Ohio ProStocks), and Greg Marsh (Zeleznik Trucking Challenger Special).  All are expected to be present this Saturday, looking for repeat wins.
