Chemung, N.Y. – Tony Hanbury of Buffalo, N.Y., heads to the Chemung Speedrome this Saturday afternoon looking to take things to another level when the Ferris Mowers Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series fueled by Sunoco takes to the challenge track for The Drome “75”. Hanbury has been a staple on the Series for several years and he’s looking for success at one of the tracks he has the most experience at.
“We’ll be ready to go at Chemung,” offered Hanbury, who drives a Troyer chassis with a Morgantini engine, with sponsorship coming from longtime partner Manzari’s Bar and Grill, along with Pine City Tool and Kountry Krullers Bakery. “Chemung has been very good to me over the years and we’ve won races there and that is what we will be looking to do on Saturday. My team and I have dug in and we’ve been working hard. Everyone on the Series has really stepped up and the competition has been tough so far this year.
Hanbury has developed from “young gun” into one of the veterans of the Series and he sees the Series from many different aspects.
“There is a really good mix of racers that run the Series,” Hanbury explained, who drives for an Elmira, N.Y., based team led by Tom Gush. “There are some talented young racers along with guys that have been running the Series for a long time. It makes it challenging every time you get to the track because anyone can be competitive and having a good day. Chemung will be no different, but the track does present some unique challenges. Hopefully when the checkered flag falls it’s our day. We’re really looking forward to it.”
