(Pulaski, PA)…The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance is happy to announce that Sherwood Racing Wheels will be the "Official Wheel" of the Sportsman Modified division for the fifth consecutive year.  In addition, Sherwood will present the "Man of Steel" program at all Touring Series events, and will contribute to both the 2019 Sportsman Modified and Pro Mod "Manufacturers Nights" presented by MSD Performance. 


The "Man of Steel" program will get underway on April 27 when the RUSH Sportsman Modified Touring Series opens at Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, WV.  The first ever Tour race at the 1/4-mile "Bullring" will pay $800 to-win.  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, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds are mandated to run steel wheels.


The RUSH Sportsman Modified "Manufacturers Night" will take place at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio on August 17, which will also be a Tour event.  On this night, it's expected that approximately $25,000 of useful product will be given away including four Sherwood Wheels.  Also, Sherwood Wheels will give away four Sherwood wheels as part of the annual RUSH Pro Mod "Manufacturers Night", which this year will take place at Old Bradford (PA) Speedway for the first time ever on July 7.


"Sherwood Wheels has been a great marketing partner of RUSH," stated Director Vicki Emig.  "The Sherwood Family has been tremendous to work with over the years and has annually contributed thousands of dollars of product to our racers. We can't thank Sherwood enough for their steadfast commitment to RUSH over the past five years and it's great to see that many of our teams are now loyal to the Sherwood brand." 


"We're also thrilled that Wedge Motorsports, which is owned by Sharon Speedway General Manager Dave Willoughby, is now a dealer of Sherwood Wheels and will have the wheels available in our region," added Emig.  "The quality of  Sherwood Wheels is second to none and to have them now more accessible to our racers via Wedge is really going to be a positive for all concerned."


"Sherwood Racing Wheels is excited to continue to partner with RUSH to present the ‘Man of Steel’ award to a deserving driver at each touring series event,” expressed Lee Sherwood, whose education in mechanical technology and nearly 25 years of experience driving and preparing an asphalt modified serves him well in the business.  “We have watched the RUSH Sportsman Modified Series grow each year 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're hoping to make it to some RUSH events in 2019."
