 ROB KRISTYAK BECOMES 6TH DIFFERENT SWEENEY RUSH SPORTSMAN MOD WINNER IN 6 RACES AT EXPO PART OF THE TRUMBULL COUNTY FAIR WITH HIS 1ST CAREER HOVIS TOUR VICTORY

July 11, 2019

(Cortland, OH)...Though it wasn't looking promising, the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sportsman Modified Series powered by Pace Performance finally was able to complete its first official Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series event of the season last Thursday at Expo Speedway. Heavy thunderstorms rolled through the region during the morning hours then again two separate times during the mid and late afternoon, but all three rounds somehow missed the Trumbull County Fairgrounds allowing racing on the big 5/8-mile to be completed during the 173rd annual Fair.

In his first season of RUSH Sportsman Modified racing last year, Rob Kristyak, a former Big-Block Modified racer, had just four top five finishes. With a new Bicknell car over the offseason, Kristyak has come out of the gate as one of the drivers to beat. In fact, Kristyak entered Thursday night as the Hovis Weekly Series points leader thanks to seven top five finishes in seven starts including three victories! Kristyak continued his impressive season on Thursday night by passing Chas Wolbert on lap six for the lead and racing on to his first career Tour victory, worth $800. Tremendous two and three-wide racing took place during the feature with many fans saying it was the best racing they've seen in awhile.

May 11, 2019

(Hartford, OH)...After completing heat races back on September 7, 2018 in night one of the "Apple Festival Nationals" at Sharon Speedway for the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sportsman Modified Series powered by Pace Performance, rain washed out night two on September 8. Thus with Sharon's 2018 season completed, night two was postponed to Saturday night, which finally kicked off the 2019 season. Due to the make-up occurring in the new season, it became a non-point Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series event; however, Hovis Weekly Series points were awarded. A total of 36 different drivers competed in the event.

Chas Wolbert started the 2019 season right where he left off in 2018- in victory lane. After ending the season winning the final four Sportsman Modified features at Sharon including the "Manufacturers Night" Tour event, Wolbert extended his win streak to five by capturing the 25-lap make-up feature event on Saturday night. Despite starting eighth, Wolbert made the winning pass of Garrett Krummert on lap 15 to nail down the $800 victory.
