Elma, N.Y. – Two prominent events that are part of the Ferris Mowers Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series fueled by Sunoco will have added bonuses in place when Race of Champions teams roll in to compete in them.
First up will be the Ole’ Boy Cup II at Lancaster (N.Y.) National Speedway on Thursday, June 30. Robert Laskowski, who is a long-time supporter of asphalt Modified racing has put a lap program into place that directly supports the racers. Laps start at $25 per lap.
“I enjoy the modifieds and we’ve been doing this program for a couple of years now,” stated Laskowski. “It’s fun and it helps support the teams. All of the funds I collect go directly to the racers.”
It has also been announced that Betty Sherwood through the Spalding Foundation for Injured Driver’s will head up the lap sponsorship program for the 66th Annual Race of Champions 250 at Oswego (N.Y.) Speedway on Saturday, September 17. Laps start at $50 per lap.
“Modified Racing has played an integral role in our lives,” stated Sherwood. “The Race of Champions is an important event in the sport and the lap fund that goes with it is a wonderful part of that race. Marylin Toal, her husband Don and the entire Toal family have done so much to support it through the years. It is truly an honor to take on this role. We are looking forward to the challenge that is ahead and hoping we can carry on that great tradition.”
