Oswego, NY – The 66th Annual Race of Champions will take on a nostalgic feel on Friday night, September 16 when the Race of Champions Big 10 Super Stocks take to the track. The race, which was previously scheduled for 25-laps, has been increased to 40-laps, paying $1,000 to the winner of the event. The race will be named the “National Parts Peddler 40” in honor of the racing that took place when the Race of Champions participated on the 3/4-mile oval at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway. Participants in Friday’s “National Parts Peddler 40” will be eligible to compete in the Super Stock “All-Star” on Saturday, September 17 as part of the 66th Annual Race of Champions 250.
“This is great news and a true boost for division,” stated Race of Champions Big 10 Super Stock race director, Larry Woodruff. “Our base of competitors has a true passion for racing these cars in our region and they look forward to events like this. To play a special role in the Race of Champions like this is truly an honor that we are looking forward to. Renaming the event and increasing the amount of laps to match the races at Pocono adds a great feel of nostalgia to the event that existing race fans can relate to as well as giving new fans an opportunity to take a look into history of this great event.”
The Race of Champions Big 10 Super Stocks and the Race of Champions Sportsman Modified 75 will share the stage on Friday, September 16.
