Story By: BRETT DEYO / AMERICAN RACER CUP – OAKS, PA – Each year, the unofficial kickoff to the American Racer Cup presented by Sunoco season takes place at the Motorsports Racecar & Trade Show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa.
Competitors flocked to the BD Motorsports Media LLC display during the three-day show to sign up for the 2019 edition of the ‘home-track’ program presented by American Racer tires, Lias Tire Company, Sunoco Race Fuels and Insinger Performance. In 2018, the program distributed 575 complimentary tire certificates and $51,450 in prize money to 242 registered drivers.
At 2 p.m. on Sunday, all registered drivers were entered into a drawing for two free tire certificates, one for the Modified division and another for Sportsman. The drawing was shown on Facebook live.
New Egypt (N.J) Speedway regular Matt Stangle of Neshanic Station, N.J., was the recipient of the Modified tire certificate, while Fonda (N.Y.) Speedway driver Derrick McGrew Jr. received the Sportsman tire certificate.
