(Pulaski, PA)…As year number two for the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sportsman Modified season quickly approaches, directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone are proud to announce Sherwood Racing Wheels has been named the Series' "Official Racing Wheel”.  Sherwood will be major contributor on the "Manufacturers Night" in addition to presenting the "Man of Steel" program at each Bicknell Racing Products Touring Series event.


At each of the six Bicknell Racing Products Tour events, RUSH Series Officials will determine the Sherwood Racing Wheels "Man of Steel" award winner as one that bounced back from an earlier mishap to finish the event strongly.  The selected driver will receive a certificate for a free Sherwood Racing Wheel. Of course, RUSH mandates the steel wheels.


An additional six wheels will be given away on the second annual "Manufacturers Night" to be held this year at Sportsman's Speedway in Knox, Pa. on Sunday, August 9.  The "Sam and Bonnie Memorial" will also be a Bicknell Racing Products Tour event.  It's expected on this night that over $10,000 in products will be distributed.  Over $5,000 was distributed at last year's inaugural event at Lernerville Speedway.


"Sherwood Racing Wheels is excited to partner with RUSH to present the ‘Man of Steel’ award to a deserving driver at each touring series event,” Lee Sherwood, whose education in mechanical technology and 20 years of experience driving and preparing an asphalt modified serves him well in the business.  “We have watched closely for the last year as the RUSH Sportsman Modified Series has grown and we share their belief in promoting affordable Modified racing through cost effective rules and enforcement.  With that in mind we offer the racers lightweight, high-quality steel wheels.  We also repair most brands of steel racing wheels, often at less than half the cost of a new wheel."


"We're thrilled to have Sherwood Racing Wheels part of our Sweeney RUSH Sportsman Modified Series," expressed Emig.  "This is another quality company to join our Series, and they share our belief that steel wheels are the correct choice for the Sportsman Modified division.  We met Lee in 2013 at the Parts Peddler and even though they were unable to participate last season, we're happy they came on board for 2015.  The "Man of Steel" program will be an exciting addition to our Bicknell Tour events."
